Widget for Android?

I really like the features of Todoist, I am running on Android 2.3.4. (using Todoist for Android). I really need a widget to view my Todo's on my phone. Is there anything in the works to provide an Android Widget for Todoist? Or maybe a 3rd party app that provides a widget? This is a make or break feature for me.

Thanks for any guidance!

Hello Thomas,

we are currently working on our native Todoist Mobile app which will provide many Todoist features and we may indeed add an Android widget in future development as well.

For now, all available mobile options are listed here:

Hi David - almost 8 months since your reply on this thread, any more developments on an Android App with WIDGET?

Hello Clif,

our Android app is almost finished and the open beta testing phase is already running: https://plus.google.com/b/106827182652048588353/106827182652048588353/posts/1XdM7JUM5CQ

If it won't have a widget at launch, we may add it in the future.

Best regards,

I'd like to add that I would very much appreciate a widget.

I'd also like a widget. It's very useful to quickly add something you're thinking about. (The RTM app has a very good widget)

I need a widget! Main reason I'm switching to Astrid :\

I'd agree. While it is great to have the full app, I think the original request is for a Widget that is always opened on the screen and displays your current tasks. Other apps have this ability.

+1 for a Widget request!

As a side note, setting a "Default Project" for the android app would be useful, as I don't use "tasks for today"

I agree with widget request! I very like todoist web app but I'm sorry that I can't one-time buy pro version of Android todoist with tag search feature. I have to buy premium plan for it.

I'm try to use Astrid, but I don't like it to much (but is very fast developed so is a hope).

Still no widget?
Too bad :/
For me it's the only reason NOT to use todoist.

+1 for widget.

Without widget I have to use other services and I can't use 2 services, becouse I have to do double work.

We've very close to the release of our widget, it should take too long before it gets published, it will be awesome and certainly worth the wait :)

Best regards,

Any ETA for the widget?
And will it be available on the free version?
