"Back" button is not "Discard"


How to reproduce:
Select a TODO item
Select "Edit" (the pen icon at the bottom)
Change the description
Select the "Back" button

Observed behavior
A dialog appears:
Discard your changes?
OK Cancel

Expected behavior
A dialog should appear:
Save your changes?
Save Discard Cancel

Rationale: the "back" button on Android doesn't generally mean "discard all changes". The app should be friendlier to the user and should not try to discard changes by default.

Thanks for the suggestion. We have changed this function a few times and in the end we felt that most of the time, this works best for most people. Though, we will always consider changing it in future updates.
