iPad App Beta Feedback
Not sure where you wanted to collect feedback on the beta iPad app, so thought I'd just start a general thread here.
Overall, the app looks good and works well. I like that you've adhered to the simple, streamlined design. I could think of a number of "enhancements" (e.g., the ability to add your own shortcuts for queries, such as Next 3 days, instead of Next 7, etc), but I'll leave that for now and just focus on my top three requests around current functionality:
1) Calendar Widget
For scheduling tasks, the app really needs a true calendar widget (which shows days of the week). The current widget, which allows the user to select month/day/year by scrolling wheels, isn't particularly helpful. When I schedule tasks, the day of the week is important.
2) Schedule for today
I noticed that you can mark a past-due task as due for today by clicking on the Task, then Edit > Calendar Widget > Today > Check. That's five clicks, which is way too much. I'd like there to be an easier way to schedule a task for today. The postpone button is great -- I recommend adding a button directly to the left of this which would schedule the task for today.
3) Delayed Sync.
This is more of an FYI, because it isn't too much of a bother. When I attempt to sync ToDoIst by dragging the task list down, the app APPEARS to sync. When I click on the Settings wheel, the caption in the lower-left corner indicates the sync was successful (e.g., "Last synced: 3 seconds ago). However, the sync didn't really happen yet. It takes another 15-20 seconds for the sync to actually happen and register on-screen. This is a little misleading, so I'd recommend fixing it. However, so long as this is consistent, I can adapt.
Hope this is helpful. Thanks to the development and support crew for working on this, launching it, and collecting feedback.
