Windows 8 - "Metro" App

MM

I'm using a Windows 8 Pro Tablet (not RT) with a Touchscreen and there I have some issues with scrolling in the HTML5 App as in the native Windows App. So my question is: will there be a nice and Touchscreen-optimized Windows 8 "Metro App" (don't know the new label after the change) like the iPad App, because it would really improve my work style?

Please provide me some feedback ;-D

Best Regards

Mario

Hi Mario,

Sadly, we don't have a "Metro" style app yet. We'll consider developing it in the future.

Hi Clyde,

So "Consider" means there is no fixed plan at the moment that there will be such app (even for windows phone8 too) in the future?

What can I do to speed up your considerations? :-P

Please provide me some feedback

Best Regards

Mario

Hi Mario,

As a team with limited development resources, we have to prioritize certain features/platforms. There's no one factor that we use to decide for creating a dedicated app but we do look at the demand of the request from our users.

Please add me to the demand of needing/wanting the Metro version of this app. I am a paying customer and intend to pay my $29 again this November when it is time for another year. Windows tablets/2 in 1 laptops are flooding the market and this seems to be a huge opportunity for Todoist as I absolutely love the app on my Galaxy Note 3 phone and my Galaxy Note 12.2 tablet. But when I get on my windows 8.1 tablet it is just not the same.

Thanks,
Mickey

Most of my devices are Windows. The web app only marginally works on the Windows phone platform. The desktop app seems to work fine. The Android app has some issues but works OK. (I think that has more to do with the fact that it's Android though.)

My continued use of any task/project management platform will be contingent on it's support of Windows. In my business world, there really aren't any choices. My entire industry runs on Windows and that is unlikely to change significantly in the next 20 years. The less a solution supports Windows, the more I look for alternatives and I'm quite certain that's the case with most mainstream businesses.

Expanding this platform into the business arena so that you have more resources for development will be contingent upon support of the Windows platforms. (This is less the case with the phone platform but critical for the general OS.) I do expect to see many business begin to move to Windows phone because it's quite stable and very powerful. Most importantly, it integrates almost seamlessly with most business platforms, offers advanced security, and the personal features are very attractive. Having used both Windows and Android, I've found Windows far superior.

Just my two cents.

I've since switched away as a Premium user. It is a major disruption to my workflow not having a usable client for my Surface. Please reconsider priority. There are multiple threads expressing interest in the latest versions of the Windows platform (Windows Phone and Windows 8.1)

I'm also in agreement on this question. Windows is far too dominant a platform to ignore and the Metro functionality - particulalry the ability to have side-by-side dynamically sized apps open simultaneously - seems to be a very natural extension of the Todoist approach. As others have pointed out, this is not just about integration on tablets but also about windows smart phones.

I'm sure you guys are already considering this. I hope the small sampling of potential users on this thread is enough to convince you to direct your focus in this direction.

Thanks for a fantastic app!
