Support a touch-friendly interface when available

I have a difficult time using Todoist on a touch screen (I use IE 11 on Windows RT on a Surface RT, but I think it would be the same everywhere). Right-clicking (tap and hold) doesn't work because when I touch a task, it goes into edit mode.

It would be nice to have, on a touch screen, a target area near the task that would display the right-click menu. Also, if the touch areas were just slightly larger to accommodate my enormously fat fingers. ;-)

My understanding (could be wrong) is that browsers on touch screens send the word "Touch" in the User-Agent header.

Hello Alan,

Thank you for your suggestion. The right-click menu does have a separate icon - it's on the right end of the task name, or rather, the line where the task ends.

Dragging and dropping also has a separate handle on the left side of the task.

We will consider creating a native Windows 8 app which should solve this issue, but for now we also have a basic mobile interface for Todoist at https://todoist.com/m


Best regards,
David

Hi David,

The icon doesn't appear unless you hover over the task. I can't hover on a touch screen. It's true that it appears if I tap the invisible area to the right end of the task.

Dragging and dropping also doesn't work because the drag handle doesn't appear until I hover over the left side of the task, and, as I mention, I can't hover...

I appreciate the mobile interface on my phone, but it's a little... awkward on larger screen (like the Surface).

Thanks for the attention, btw. I can't recommend Todoist enough to my friends and family.
