Daily Recurring Task No Longer Appearing

Several daily recurring tasks have been working flawlessly, with completion followed by an appearance the following day. Until today. Was trying out a "todoist lite" app on Windows Phone and the tasks set to "completed" now no longer appear.
I can see it in "completed" and the next date is correct and the task can be "uncompleted" wherein it reappears in the correct list for a few seconds, then disappears again.
Any ideas?

Hi Steve,

We do not have any official Windows Phone apps, and we do not maintain those third party apps. Please try to contact the developer, it's possible it's having an issue, and marking those tasks complete for good (you can do this on the web version by holding down SHIFT when checking recurring tasks off) instead of how it should be working.

Does this occur if you add one on the web version, and complete it from the web version?

Well, first things first I tried logging out of the Windows Phone version (which I don't plan to use again, it is very limited) and the server version of the task is still corrupt in that I cannot "uncheck" it.. Is there a keyboard shortcut I can use to get the task back again?

The Web Version still works fine, for the tasks that were not "touched" by the phone version.

Unfortunately, it's likely that app corrupted those tasks, and there aren't many options. You can check your backups (top right corner, Settings, Backups) and see if those are alright within them.

Though, the quickest solution would be (unless it was a lot of task) to re-create them again.
