Windows 8 Phone

RM

I'm a potential new premium user but do you expect an official W8 Phone app shortly? Without such an app it's not working how it used to be. The solution suggested on this platform to use the mobile or regular browser version is not realistic. In case there won't come a W8 Phone app then the conclusion is that todoist is not available for W8 phone users. It's a pity because I think this program really could help me and my company. Please be honest about the short-time expectations of the required app instead of advising to use the browser version.

Hi Robert,

Feel free to vote on the Windows Phone related suggestions in our votebox. http://todoist.com/Vote/

At the moment we are not working on or have any concrete plans to build a Windows Phone app, but we would like to support as many platforms as possible, so it's very possible it will be eventually. Of course, we then can't give any type of ETA for this.

Regards,
Brendon.

Hi, I've just got a lovely new Nokia running Windows Phone 8. I knew there was no official Todoist app, but I was disappointed to find that I could not get either the full or the mobile web site to work either.

There would be no need for an app if the mobile web site worked with my phone, because it could easily be pinned as a tile on the start screen. However, although it can show me how many tasks are due today, I can't seem to find out what those apps are! I tap on today but nothing happens. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? Are there any instructions?

The full web site won't even give me the option to log in. If I go there via the force full site link I can log in but the formatting goes haywire.

I've had no such problems with other web sites, mobile or otherwise, and generally my impression of Windows Phone 8 is that it is more professional than Android and likely to overtake it for business users.

Hi Simon,

We are looking into issues with the browsers not working on mobile, though we are having issues reproducing that.

There is an un-official app for Windows Phone though, you may want to check it out for the moment. We don't support it, and do not know how well it is done, but may be worth your time. http://www.windowsphone.com/en-ca/store/app/metroist/dc8d3a13-de05-46ec-90c5-e1996abaa81b

Thanks Brendon, I did have a look at that app although I had reservations about using a 3rd party site. It seemed to have some sync problems e.g. I could mark a task as done but when I returned to it, it was undone!

On your mobile site, I found if I tapped anywhere on Today [3 tasks] nothing happened. If I pressed and held on it, a horizontal black line (loading?) appeared then I was given the option to open in a new tab, however the tab was always empty. My best results so far have been in using the main site because it is just about functional enough to read today's tasks and check them off.

I'm using a Nokia Lumia 620 which has downloaded a load of updates from Microsoft so I think it's all up-to-date. I doubt if the browser is fully HTML 5 compliant but Microsoft are really putting their weight behind Windows Phone 8 (not least by buying Nokia!) so I'm sure it will become an important platform quite soon. Despite all their false starts, the Windows compatibility is excellent so I'm sure it will win over a lot of PC users from Android.

Hi,

I am premium and I want to switch to Windows Phone,
If there is no good Windows Phone implementation, I will consider using another task manager... too bad...

I noticed also the free todoist lite app (not from todoist)

I think the answer is yes, but would you allow someone to develop a non free Windows Phone app for todoist (using the API) ?

Hi Vincent,

Yes, we do allow them to develop apps based on the API that we provide.

Best Regards,

Clyde

Ok, cool, the API looks nice... That could be a great project to provide a good App.
And a great challenge because it is not easy to make a top notch GUI (although we can reproduce the one from the iPHone for example)

Thanks for your answer !

Hi,

I just wanted to say that I really hope you'll make Windows Phone app too. I had android phone before, and W8 phone is much faster and has better usability. I see you created app for desktop Windows, so why not for phone too?

I wish you happy developing!

Hi,

I'm also looking for a good app for Windows Phone, now I use Metroist, which has basic functionality only, but still can display my tasks and allows quickly adding new tasks.

Hope that one day i'll be able to use generic todoist app.

Kind regards,
Sergey

Yes, I'm a WP8 user as well. I'm using a 3rd party app for now, but it would be very much preferred to have a native Todoist app.

Agreed. Love WP8.1 so looking at other 'to do' options. Would love an official app.
