Safari Users?

I know this might have been brought up before but does Todoist have any plans to better support Safari users?

With the deprecation of Todoist anywhere and no dedicated extension, it kinda leaves Safari users in the dark. For an app that prides itself on ubiquity, I find this puzzling as Safari isn't exactly an obscure browser.

Other than switching browsers altogether, are there any suggestions for making the experience a bit better for Safari users?

Sadly at this time I can not offer much. We hope we can create something in the future but there is no guarantee on that.

Safari usage share continues to grow, slowly but steadily.

Thanks for your reply Brendon.

Is there any way for Safari users to at least leverage Todoist Anywhere? It seems that is the only way we could possibly leverage Todoist in Safari - yet it appears the team has also removed Todoist Anywhere from the site.

I find Safari users are kind of on an island with Todoist at this point - which is surprising given we aren't talking about an obscure browser.

Hello Michael,

We'll look into this in the future and will consider to create a Safari plugin for Todoist :)

+1 for a Safari plugin!!!

I switched to Chrome only for the convenience of the Todoist plugin. But since that I have several issues repeatedly with this browser I did not have before. So I am looking forward to change back to Safari asap :-)!

Is it just a prioritization question or are there technical challenges to overcome? I bet if you sent an poll/email to your customers, you will see a lot of demand for the safari plugin.

Todoist is the ONLY reason I use/switch to chrome for email (which defeats the purpose of saving time/efficiency/all round productivity).

This had got to be one of the easiest things to program/create, especially since you already have a Chrome plugin. Get it ported over!!

Chrome has become a massive resource hog but I still use it because there is no Safari plug in.

Please, please, please develop one.

Doesn't the fact so many of us are prepared to compromise on the browser we use so we can use the todoist plug in tell you how much we value your product so please make us feel loved back and help us out here.

I switched to Safari with Yosemite roll-out, and I don't want to come back to Firefox (not mentioning Chrome...) ! Neeeed a Safari plugin for Todoist :)

It's not really a plug-in but with our latest Mac app, you should be able to add websites as task via the share menu. :-)

We'll consider creating a dedicated plug-in for it in the future.

Yes that's useful indeed. But what's really missing for me is the "add to Todoist" button in Gmail.

Click on the share icon next to the address bar. Then click on "more" to see Todoist on the list. Just drag it so it comes up in the menu. That's it. Works like a charm. No need for a plugin.

The share menu is nice indeed.

What would be absolutely ideal would be something comparable to the Chrome extension/Todoist Anywhere - so users could actually navigate into Todoist and add the task in the proper place. The share menu only lets you "dump" stuff to a project but not add the site as a note to another task or make it a subtask (you would need a secondary step to go do that).

To me, the way it works in Chrome/Todoist Anywhere is the most powerful advantage of Todoist! ;-)
