[UI/UX] Completing a task shouldn't require multiple taps

NK

I understand this task slide-out menu is seriously cool, and somebody put a lot of effort into it... I really do!

But completing a task should be a simple tap on the box or -- even better -- a horizontal swipe not multiple taps on different targets.

Hi Nick,

All you need to do to complete a task on the iPhone is tap on it, and then hit Complete.

We are also in the process of re-designing out iOS app which will include many changes and improvements, we hope to have this available soon.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Brandon,

Precisely my point -- two taps where one would be sufficient. Most of the time the only thing I want to do to a task is to complete it.

Thanks! Looking forward to the updated iOS version.

Maybe it's an idea to complete a task by a swipe + tap action.
Swipe to reveal one-or-multiple buttons and tap to complete (or postpone).

Hello Rein,

You don't even have to tap on anything to complete a task. Simply swipe it from right to left and it's done :)


Best regards,
David
