Would you change the push alert on iphone?


Would you change the push alert on iphone?
The default IOS push alert on iphone is the same as the normal notification sound.
When the Todosit alert rings out, I have the puzzle that if it is a SMS or a Todoist alert.
Some other apps on iPhone announce individual push alert sound, like OmniFocus.
Would you change the push alert with a sound different from the default notification sound?

I would also like to vote for this suggestion. The Android version of Todoist has this feature.

Effectively, having the same notification sound as other iOS system notifications is confusing.
+1 for this feature!

Make it so! (both for iPhone and iPad).

Many basic features missing from iOS but found on Android. I guess we know where the developers heart is.

Any chance of this happening.

Definitely important for a serious app with such potentially extensive usage of notifications.
For me, push notifications were the most important reason for going Premium. Very disappointing now to have no way to get away from that nasty, heavy tri-tone.
Please, make the notification sound customizable.

The barely audible ios chime is not significant enough for important reminders. This seems like a pretty basic request. I hope to see it soon.

This advanced of a feature could take years to develop. You know the Todoist team is working non-stop in the lab every day trying to figure out how to make this happen.

Jeez guys… should we maybe help them?
I mean… they probably need some rocket scientists working on that and can't afford them? Let's use kickstarter… or something?… :-S
