Hi Oscar,

We do not have different versions of our apps, but are account based Premium. Our latest version of the app does indeed require 10.7+.

You should be able to go to Todoist.com, and sign in, and upgrade to Premium and still be able to log in to the older version and have Premium features. We do though recommend upgrading to the latest app.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Hello Dan,

Yes, you can use an older version: http://files.wedoist.com/dbb88e0cacd358c4bb31da36b438475a/as/TodoistApp.zip but please note that it's no longer supported by us, won't be updated in the future and any issues or bugs it may contain will not be fixed.


Best regards,
David

Thanks.

Curiosity.... Why no backward compatibility in the current version?

I mean, your only talking about 2-3 steps different in the OS levels?

I can't think of anything that the ToDoist app thats supported in 10.7 that couldn't be in 10.6.x

The app isn't performing any special high-level functions???

Dan,

At the moment no there aren't any new features only supported by the new version, but this tends to be the case. So only supporting our newest versions, and OS's has become a rule for us.

Thanks,
Brendon.

Ok. But it would make sense to have some backward compatibility, at least one version back. Not everyone can or wants to jump into the newest of new OS's that exist out there. Simply for the same reasons, the newest is not always the best or is stable.

Perhaps another the support team is looking to overt is the load on technical support?

Dan,

Yes, part of the reason is due to help with our Technical Support team, but not the only reason. It can take many more resources to maintain bug fixes and reports for an older software, and a newer one.

Thanks,
Brendon.
