Hello Mathias,

I can't reproduce this issue. Both the link you've mentioned and the link to the download itself work fine in Chrome and Firefox.

Please make sure that you're copy/pasting the correct URL as Chrome may also accidentally suggest an incorrect URL to you as you start typing it.

Best regards,

Hi again

No cut and paste, Just pressing the link on your page: https://todoist.com/app?lang=sv&v=189#start

The other links for instance outlook and gmail works fine.

the link that I provided above doesn't work for me either when I press it,

Guessing that it's due to me running swedish.

If you change the language to English, does it work? Please confirm if that is the issue.

How do I change the language to english?

- Can't find a setting in Todoist.
- Unable to guess at the right params for the URL to switch language , default to sv&v for me all the time.
- No setting in Chrome as far as I can see.
- Do I have to switch the language of the entire Mac OS X just to download your app?

Regards Mathias

To change the language, click on the gear icon in the top-right corner, go to Settings and pick the language from there.

However, this won't be necessary as I've been able to reproduce this issue when changing my language to Swedish now. We'll look into it.

For now, if you want to download the Mac App, please get it from this location directly: https://d3ptyyxy2at9ui.cloudfront.net/Todoist_v3_1.zip
