Why is iOS development so much delayed against Android?

- you are introducing new features for Android
- Android has search, create above, add subtask, notes in main formular, saved searches, reminders
- on iOS no search, saved searches are'nt working properely from beginning to now, about year
- nested projects are not colapsing
- nested task are nost colapsing
- no acces to
- no reminders
- no add attachments
- no acces to completed
- many unexpectly quits and frozens, I have to delete and install app quite often

Why is iOS so trimmed, are you just "Android guys" and iOS is getting laid aside???
I love Todoist, but this drives me crazy...

Hello Kakaxa,

We're sorry for these delays, the primary reasons for this delay were:
- We've had a very broken old iOS app and by the time we've created the Android app and add features to it, we were completely rewriting the iOS app
- Our Android development team was for some time bigger than our iOS team. This has changed recently, though.

That said, we'll surely catch up as much as possible (not everything can be done on iOS that can be done on Android) and we assure you that both our app will be very similar and the iOS app will get a lot of new features.

Best regards,

Thanks for reply.
I think you have bigger team for Android, isn't it?
I wish you to have more developers for iOS...

Can't wait for new iOS App, if even score and fills in the missing.

6 months after my complains looks now Todoist better on iOS.
Thanks for it.

Still waiting for:
- collapsing of subtask and subprojects
- create below/above, create subtask
- properly funcioning filters
- writing notes before saving new task

I am looking out for this on every Todoist update.
Is there some time frame and are these functions planned or declined on iOS...?

Maybe that if Amir used iOS...? Hard to believe that has no effect for these delays.

Hi Kakaxa,

Sadly, we can't give out any time frame for the features that you have listed. Our goal is to make the best possible app for each platform but sometimes it does take time to bring them regardless if it's in iOS, Android, or the web.

That said, have you checked our latest update yesterday (version 8.3)? There's one feature there that was added that is in your original list. ;-)

Best Regards,

Acces to completed, yes I know, nice implemented without slowing down sync. Thanks for it.

But collapsing of subtask is on iOS gamechanger!

Yes this is very frustrating, especially the create above/below of a subtask. I am an iOS developer, I will help for free to improve this app!
