This app is really beautifully designed, and I'm a todo app addict kind of lol. This is way nicer to use than Microsoft To-Do.

Pros:

BEAUTIFUL ui, interactions, organization. Very intuitive and refreshingly predictable.

Cons:

I know its just a baby app, but a webapp or desktop equivalent would be awesome if I wanted to go in and manage/add alot of tasks at once.

Information architecture fail:

No sectioning for tasks or projects -- so you get 10+ and you're gone. You are in procrastination heaven.

Task managment fail (!?!):

(1) You can't add more than about 15 projects - you run out of colours and the screen goes white and the projects are greyed out (?!).

(2) You can't edit tasks after you write them - only tick them off. And if you accidentally tick them, you can't untick them.

FOCUS/productivity fail:

(1) When you miss a SINGLE day of tasks, it's lumped into "Today", so you lose any benefit of focusing (plus you can't edit the date - and if you could, you can't do it quickly enough to be beneficial).

(2) When you are adding a task via a category it's automatically got a date - but then you've got to move it every single time you don't complete it (x50 tasks/day). So this is a waste of time. It should default to no date unless you choose one, or there be a bulk way to select and change dates.

(How can I say this so confidently? I'm writing a productivity course, and I've used almost every to-do app out there.)

Pros:

Great UI

Cons:

Lots of bugs; some effort, but minimal, towards good structure + hierarchy. And you can't focus when yesterday's incompletes run into todays

Unless I misunderstand what you're saying, you *can* edit tasks, right? Slide the task left, and tap "edit." I kept trying to tap the task to open and edit, so yeah -- the UI is not exactly intuitive for me.

You can edit a task, like @cacarr was saying, by swiping the task to the left. You can then edit the amount completed, edit the task, or delete it. We think provide the user with 17 color options for categories because once you start providing more color options they can start looking similar. We felt like the color options we provided were a good selection for users. If you are the kind of person to have 17+ projects then you can either start by grouping projects into categories and then start creating tasks with subtasks for each project or find an app that gives you more categories/projects. Thank you for the feedback. We are aware of the bugs in the app and are working on getting builds out to fix them.
