App not syncing with web
I started using Todoist this morning. I use the website and the Android app. Edits made on the website don't reflect in the mobile app unless I manually click the refresh button. Will changes not sync automatically?

Thanks Brendon! I just upgraded to premium, so I'm looking forward to seeing my tasks auto-sync.
By the way I went looking this morning to see if auto-syncing was a premium feature, and filed this question after not seeing auto-syncing listed on this page: http://todoist.com/pricing
I'd have paid sooner if I'd seen it there. :)
We do not list it because it's a bit different. When opening up the app it will sync new information, if you change the view it will sync new information. Though, if you are one a view (like Today) and leave it, it will not update unless you do something, or hit the refresh.
And to be clear, we don't list it directly for Android, but Automatic Sync is listed in the Premium options :)

I just put TODOIST on my desktop... then added the android app to my cell phone.
I hit the refresh button on the cell phone but it didn't show any of the tasks I had entered on the desktop version.

Figured it out... it does show Projects, but not Tasks.
Please make sure you're logged into the same account on Windows as on Android, were online while adding these tasks through the Windows app.
If the issue persists, try to add one new test task to a project through Android and sync on Windows and then another test task on Windows and sync it on Android (while being within this project) and let us know if the issue persists or if deleting and reinstalling the Android app helps.

I have a similar issue.
I have a premium account. The edits I make on the Web are only syncing on my Android app if:
- I manually hit the sync button
- I kill the app and restart it, in which case it syncs up on start
If I just hit the home button, and then return to the app, the sync won't happen automatically, and I'll have to do it manually.
I tried to reinstall the app, clear the data on it, and still have the issue.
This is with version 2.0.8 on a stock 4.3 ROM.

Well, this is indeed what was happening.
However, now, it seems to work fine, and the widget even updates without needing to open the app.
So, it all looks good now.
