Hi Anand,

We have not gotten any other reports about performance issue with our Windows desktop app. Can you please try re-installing to see if that helps? Do you have any anti-virus or security software that might be affecting its performance?

The app is very slow for me as well - web version works nice, but I'd
like to use the desktop app instead. Windows 7 64-bit here.

Hello Jani,

Please tell me, how many tasks do you have on your account approximately?

Exactly 8. Just testing Todoist, first time here, and the whole application loads slowly.

Hmm. It seems the most of the slowness at least currently is simply because of Google Authentication. The earlier slowness might have had something to do with network access before as well - Todoist desktop loads everything through web, no? Weird though, that everything works fine on a browser but slow on desktop app.

Yes its basically just a window to the web version, there is more to it than that. So can you tell me, if you sign in with just username/password, same issue?

And to be clear, using it is not slow, just on load (first sign in) is slow?
