Please add a homescreen widget


One of my favorite features of my former ToDo list app was a widget that showed my tasks at a glance, as well as the ability to quickly add a task from the widget.

Would pay for that feature on the Android App.

I like this suggestion!
Additionally, I think that a simple 1x1 widget that looks like a shortcut icon, but that adds a badge (similar to the badge in the chrome extension), would be really useful.

I would like to have a 4x4 widget to see at least the next '4-5' upcoming tasks. would be nice to check a task as "done" or create a new task from the widget. If possible transparent option for the widget and resizable.
thanks a lot

Todoist with 4x4 widget. May be 2 or 3 sizes could be fine.

If at least I can see the task and mark it as done... that would be enough right now.

I just paid for premium assuming there was a widget. Careless of me to assume but it is such an obvious must have

Please add it ASAP

You should be able to select what query the widget uses to fetch the tasks to display. That way you could have different widgets for different projects on different homescreens.

A 4x1 widget would be really usefull. See AnyDo's 4x1 widget - it is great!

A widget is by far the most lacking element of Todoist. Ideally the widget would have a button to add new tasks (+), another to refresh, be able to switch between date view, priority view, and list of labels view, be scroll-able, and tasks should be color coded by project As for the size, my launcher makes all widgets adjustable anyway, but 4x4 is a good start. Dark translucent theme.

Any updates about a new Android version? When do you plan to release an update?

Hello Andreas,

We will release an update with some bug fixes soon and we'll also add a widget in the near future. A widget is already in the making, it shouldn't take too long before it's ready for publishing.

Best regards,

Alexandre THOMAS

The widget is available since the update from yesterday (March 19, 2013).
A shorcut to quickly add a new task is also available.

This suggestion can be closed :)

Nice job todoist team ;)

Is there a possibility of you guys adding a 1x1 widget with a badge, like the one in the chrome extension?
