Color Picker in Action

Todo Q v1.2.3 adds the ability to choose the colors to represent the categories for tasks. Previously only A-D had colors, and they weren't configurable. Now all 6 categories A-F support custom labels and colors.

Also added this release was the ability to adjust the task list font size and icon visibility.

Here's a shot of task list minus the icon and displaying the category color behind each checkbox.

The preferences screen used to adjust the category colors displays the currently selected color for each category.

Colors are selected using the very nice ColorPickerPreference component developed by attenzione.

Todo Q is available for $1.99 on the android market. Give it a try.

Don't forget the VIBRATE permission

Recently it was reported that Todo Q was having trouble responding to an alarm with a vibration notification. Somehow I removed the VIBRATE permission from the manifest.

The latest release of Todo Q resolves this problem. I also combined two checkboxes into a single dropdown to control the time & location alarms. This is in preparation for introducing timebound location alarms, i.e., a location alarm enabled only for a specific time period.

Todo Q is available for $1.99 on the android market. Try it today.

Todo Q v1.2.0 has support for repeating tasks

Todo Q v1.2.0 has been released on the android market. The latest version adds support for repeating tasks with daily, weekly, weekday, monthly, and yearly periods.

We also recently released Todo Q Free, which is a time-limited version of Todo Q v1.1.28. (w/o repeating tasks)

Here's a shot of the repeat selection menu.

Future ideas include a custom item with support for end duration, particular days, etc. Working towards supporting more of the iCalendar specification.

Thanks for all the great input on this feature.
