Feature request: support keyboard shortcuts

It'd be awesome if keyboard shortcuts were supported in Todoist.
This would benefit users with physical keyboards (not just BlackBerrys, but Android devices with Bluetooth keyboards!).

Use case:
- Let's pretend that we are in a list view.
- Select more than one task.
- Press "delete" on keyboard.
- Success! A "delete" action is initiated, and you're prompted with a confirmation dialog box (as usual).

Looks like it's possible to do this programmatically? :-)

...also, if a physical keyboard is detected and a new task is created, automatically highlight the "Task" field as active.

I noticed that on touchscreen devices the "Task" field is marked as active automatically. (A good thing!)

Hi Dave,

Thank you for the suggestion, we appreciate it. We will take this into consideration in the future, though to be honest, physical keyboards on OSs such as Android are rare.

Regards,
Brendon.

Of course - I don't imagine a ton of your users have physical keyboards. There's always folks who have tablets and Bluetooth keyboards, though.

If your development team is ever bored, maybe query the host device and see if a physical keyboard is attached - it'd be interesting to see what the actual numbers are. :-D
