Multiple instances of Todoist.Helper.exe *32 running

I am using the todoist adding for Microsoft Office 2010 running on Windows 7-64 bit. I have multiple process for Todoist.Helper.exe *32 running each consuming about 17,000 k memory. Is there a reason while multiple processes are spawned?

All responses

How many instances do you see? Do you have our Windows app and Outlook plug-in installed and running at the same time? Can you maybe give me a screenshot of the Task Manager so I can forward it to our developer?

When using Todoist for windows AND Todoist for outlook... combined they are eating176336 K of memory... each program having 3 instances each (total of 6).

I am also running two Todoist for Chrome extensions that are eating many K as well.

I am tempted to remove ALL but one app.

I am concerned about the amount of memory needed to support these apps.

This is a standard memory consumption for browsers and both the Windows app and the Outlook plugin are frames containing a browser engine that connects to todoist.com.

Furthermore, we support offline access on all platforms so all your active tasks are cached locally in the app - this also increases the memory consumption, but offers lightning-fast performance as the data is read from the cache.
