Clicking the widget opens the task list. (principle of least astonishment)

Todo Q Screencast

Just ran across this really cool androidscreencast project on google code. Only a few frames a second, but I sort of like the effect.

Here's a capture of me walking through the app.


This uses the beta foursquare lookup to find the grocery store. What do you want to see me demo next?

Sorry, no audio at this time. Ya'll don't wanna hear my Texas twang anyway.

As the World Turns

Eek! It looks like I let my frustration leak onto the blog. Sorry.

I REALLY want Todo Q to sync with google tasks, but need a reliable method.

I appreciate the input & haven't given up on it.

Blame Google, Not Me

I'm getting beat up over the lack of google task sync. Flames for me instead of the software missing the API. If there was an API for google tasks, it would be integrated. I refuse to resort to screen scraping or use a backdoor that might end up in lost customer data.

Sorry, that's just the way I am.

Todo Q v1.1.9 for Android Released

Todo Q v1.1.9 for Android adds a few new features to the the task editor. A new "All Day?" checkbox was added to allow the creation of all day events. The task editor also replaced the "Add to Calendar?" checkbox with a dropdown listing the calendars known to the account. You can now assign a task to any of your calendars, instead of only the default defined in settings. The default still affects the imported calendar. (for now)

Here's a shot of the task editor showing the "All Day?" checkbox is selected. This hides the normally visible start & end time buttons. The calendar dropdown is visible at the bottom showing the Billy Bain calendar is selected.

Since the last blog update, Todo v1.1.8 was also released with the following features.
  • using a contact address on a task to avoid retyping
  • a new preference to force use of the gps to autofilter the list
  • a very beta foursquare lookup enabled via a new global preference
  • and a few bug fixes

Todo Q is available for only $1.99 on the android market. BBB

Droid 2.1 update makes Todo Q maps say pinch me!

My droid was updated to 2.1-update 1 this morning. I ran a quick test of Todo Q and everything seems to work normally. When testing the maps in Todo Q, I was surprised to find that "pinch to zoom" worked flawlessly. (!) I figured it would require additional work, but I guess they built it right into the component. Good job Google.

Todo Q is available for 1.99 in the android market.
