Why does my phone's back button close the app?

Please tell me - in which view are you when you use the "back" button? The main way to navigate our app is the "up" button in the top-left corner, but if you're editing a task, you can also use the hardware "back" button on your phone to get back to the home view, if you use back again, the app will indeed close.
Hi this problem also exists for me. I'm using an HTC one X, jelly bean ROM.
It's quite frustrating as in most apps the back button will return you to the home screen of the app but this one takes me out of whatever project/label/task that I'm in straight to my launcher home. This is very unproductive for a productivity app. I find myself always having to relaunch the app.
Besides that I really like the todoist ecosystem, it works really well for me and I'm a premium user. Just wish you could identify/fix this one problem.
Our app follows the official Android guidelines: http://developer.android.com/design/patterns/navigation.html
When you open our app and try to edit a task or add a note to a task, the hardware back button should go one step back to the project or date view. If you press it again in this view, it will go back to the home screen as these two views (project list and task list inside a project or a "today" view) are the same screen within the app which is our first "home" screen.
Please clarify - do you get to Android's home screen also from within the task edit screen?
