One-tap checking off of tasks ...


The two-tap interface in the current beta works fine, but I think many people will prefer a single-tap interface, and/or one with a visible checkbox. Personally, I'd love to have the ability for a swipe gesture to toggle the status of a task.

I would love to see gesture based indentation, so I would favor a SMALL, subtle checkbox. Please no huge ones like in the previous version. New interface is beautiful, lets keep that way!

Another possibility to kill two birds with one stone here: (1) quick swipe to the right to mark an item completed ... that way no need to create a checkbox, and (2) LONG press and DRAG to the right to indent / DRAG to the left to outdent.

Personally, I think that is an awesome idea. @Todoist - you are welcome :)

A nice checkbox beside the task would make this app perfect!

This is VERY necessary, IMO. One of the few important things that the new app does not get right is two-tap completion. A swipe or a checkbox should be implemented.

Likewise, swiping anywhere on the screen to bring up the project panel is kind of annoying and a waste of touch interface. I like what Todd is talking about with a few contextual gestures over the items. Indenting, organizing, and completing shouldn't really require any taps, necessarily, at this point.

This would bring it more in line to the natural intuitiveness of the webapp that we've all loved for years.

one-tap would be great. I usually think of swipe as 'delete'.

I'm a big fan of the checkboxes.. they make it feel more like a 'to do' list. The swipe to delete would also be cool.

Another vote for checkboxes! I find checkboxes not only streamline things (one click vs two), but the checkboxes, for me, help differentiate between tasks (sort of like bullet points) far better than thin grey lines between tasks. They are visual aids as well.

Also, by showing the colour priority level in the checkbox, the problem of the coloured priority bars on the mobile apps being far too thin to be easily seen is also dealt with.

+1 for checkboxes

Swipe is OK but checkboxes would be even more awesomerrr !

I want a checkbox. The swipe is for delete, and should prompt confirmation. Task management is about not forgetting anything. Accidentally completing or deleting tasks go against that purpose.

a checkbox would be much nicer than a swipe for done tasks. with a checkbox the completed tasks keeps visible. the swipe is cool for deleting.

Either a checkbox or a gesture would do the job

You can now swipe a task to mark it as completed on iPhone.

How about checkboxes for completion, and swiping for other actions (postpone, remind, tag, what-have-you)?

I'm for check boxes also.

I'll throw my support behind check boxes in the mobile apps too. They're already on the Web and Mac apps -- why not bring them to the iPhone and iPad (and other platforms, of course) too?
