Review of Taskful 3.0
I remember using Taskful a couple of years ago and really liked the idea behind it but unfortunately the implementation was not on par. Sadly, that hasn't changed. I installed it again yesterday and was genuinely surprised to see that the app is still buggy (at least on Android) and that there is still no way to have a task repeat after a certain amount of days. You can only have tasks repeat on certain days of the week, but not, say, "every two days." There also doesn't appear to be a way to reorder categories. It would be cool if the app could be configured to show categories with a lot of tasks first and put the empty ones at the end. I love being able to create tasks that have to be completed multiple times (e.g. "drink 4 glasses of water" has to be done four times in order to be considered completed) BUT I don't like the fact that the app tries (and often fails) to figure out by itself which of my tasks are like that. Case in point: I have some bookkeeping tasks to do so I created a task called "do bookkeeping" and two subtasks: "2020" and "2019." The app thought that these were tasks that have to be completed 2020 and 2019 times respectively and there is NO way to manually override that. Taskful has a lot of potential but it still needs a lot of work.

I was way happier while I was using this app freely.

Review of Taskful 3.0
In my opinion those virtual awards (the stickers) make people more anxious about their goals. I don't think this app is very good at that.

Review of Taskful 2.0

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.)
