Hello Peter,

We have:
- an extension that shows up in the top-right corner of Chrome,
- an extension that shows up inside Gmail
- a Todoist Chrome App

All 2 can be removed in Settings -> Extensions. If you can't remove them, please clarify exactly what happens if you try? Do you see any error messages? Where do you click and what happens when you do?


Best regards,
David

And what is the difference between the extensions (Chrome and Gmail that are quite alike but called in different contexts, I got this) and the Chrome App?

Thanks

Hello Étienne,

The Chrome extension is installed inside the Chrome browser and can be opened in a popup window after clicking on a red "TD" icon in the top-right corner in Chrome.

The Chrome app can run even if Chrome is closed.

Thank you David.

Sorry to insist, I just wish to get the logic and use it most effectively. Why call it a Chrome app if it is used independantly from Chrome, and even with Chrome being closed? Isn't it just like a desktop or standalone application or do I miss something?

Cant it be used offline?

Thank you again
Étienne

Étienne,

A stand-alone desktop app (which we also have at https://todosit.com/windows ) runs on its own engine independent from Chrome itself. A Chrome app is an app that's basically launched by Chrome, sharing Chrome's engine and it's something Google have created for Chrome so just like every separate tab in a Chrome can run independently, a Chrome app won't require opening Chrome as a browser.

For more information about Chrome apps, please check out this page: https://developer.chrome.com/apps/about_apps :-)

All our apps, incl. the whole web-app can be used offline thanks to HTML5's offline storage which we use.


Regards,
David

Ok, everything is now crystal clear. :-)

Thanks a lot!
