new iOS version has choppy scrooling!! / way too much whitespace

The new interface is choppy and slow, this annoys the hell out of me, the older interface was way smoother. The space on the top and bottom on each task is a bit excessive, the older version had much more tasks per screen than this one. And if the scroll is choppy... bad idea...

Also and the lettering bar for the days was bigger and more clear... now due dates / today / future are a blur and have no distinction, no red, nothing.

Projects list now sits under a sub-menu instead of the fast and immediate click for show of the older version.

i don't think this was a change for the better overall. The older seemed more immediate, more real.

Inbox has no option to be turned off?... And its the default? This makes todoist another bucket of unprocessed stuff like the other apps out there... What if my inbox is another app or a paper tray (and it is)?

Please, where can I get the older version until you deal with these issues?

We're sorry to hear that you've experienced these issues with our app. We've just improved the performance and we'll publish an update very soon, but please tell us - how many tasks do you have on your account approximately?

It is not possible to disable the Inbox, it's a default project allowing you to add tasks quicker in case you don't want to select a project to which you want to put the task as in the past, the project selection was mandatory every time.

Unfortunately, we no longer support the old app and only the version 6.0 is available.

Not many at all, around 200 tasks. I have an iPhone 4S.

"the project selection was mandatory every time."

I liked that. I used things for mac for a long time and having tasks without a project is not a good thing. The mandatory in this case allows for better per tasks categorization.

As for inbox, I like it, I understand the usefulness but should have option to turn off.

Please don't morph into a "feature of the week" todo app!

But you can turn into a "optional feature of the week" one with switches that turn on/off advanced features.

You can still select a project every time you add a task, the only difference is that you don't have to. Now it's optional because if you either forget it or don't want to categorize your task right away or need to add something very quickly, it will go to the inbox. With the inbox, selecting a project is no longer forced, but optional.

Best regards,
