App Icon Indicator Auto Update
It would be nice if the app icon would auto update what we had going on that day. For example, if we have three things on our list for that day, the app icon shows nothing until we log in and then it updates but if we don't open the app, it's as if there is nothing to be done at all that day. An icon indicator that updated no matter what with the number of tasks that needed to be done would be really great. I know that I don't always think to open the app, but any app with the indicator on it always gets my attention first thing. I'd love to see this done and if it's something that I'm doing wrong, I'd love for someone to steer me in the right direction.
The icon should update automatically. Please tell me - do you have a Premium account? Automatic syncing for both the app and the icon is a Premium-only feature.
I don't have a premium account. I just know that I have to open the app to get the icon to pop up with the red circle that has how many items I have for that day. I hadn't known that this was a premium feature because I had a 1 month trial as a premium user and it still didn't auto-populate unless I opened the app first and then it sycn'd just fine. Just not on day change.
My thought was that as the day changes, the app would work almost like a calendar and use the notification bubble to say you have this many things today without having to open the app first. You would see the notification and then open the app. Mine just works opposite and even did with the premium trial that I had.
You're right, according to the developers, the badge indeed requires the app to be opened or some changes to be made and it will not update live if its closed.
We'll consider improving this in future updates.
