Yes, and then "Upgraded.... " on or about 02/25/13. Mine doesn't work anymore on my iPad! I am not impressed.

Hi. The new app keeps showing me future tasks. I have the button pushed to hide future tasks, but it doesn't work. Recurring tasks seem messed up to. Whenever I check the box that I completed this weeks recurring task, next weeks task pops up in the overdue category. I use this app daily, please go back to the old one!!

I like the update but is there anyway that we can choose the colors for Priority?

Just updated, just swiped through my tasks and get a little feeling for the app.
I've got to admit: I love it! Great work!

I don't mind the new UI although do find it a bit slower, hopefully it will improve. I am disappointed that there is little new functionality though. I would have preferred more effort spent on enhanced features such as:

- auto updating task list when a task is edited (currently have to manually refresh view)
- remember sort order per folder, not just a single global sort order
- better display of nested tasks
- some drag and drop functionality for reordering tasks like the website
- setting for default date input (I always use calendar view so have to click 3 time whenever editing a date)

Anyway still think its the best solution for my needs.

I liked the old interface from 3.0.1. But that's just how I see it. Version 3.0.2 looks more like the webpage so obviously the work will now be focused on the new layout. Fair enough.

So here's my question: In the 3rd Party Directory are quite a lot of Toodledo-compatible Alternatives. Do some of these Apps imitate the old behaviour or layout from Version 3.0.1? Would be really helpful for me. :)

I posted earlier about the new app showing my future apps. I now see the app does not allow me to add a start date to a task I am adding. This is the problem. The web site allows me to add a start date and then if I hide future tasks, the task will not show up until the start date. So the web version still works perfect, it's just the app does not work the way I want. I have the 2DO app which syncs with Toodledo and allows me to filter the way I want. Unfortunate...

"I now see the app does not allow me to add a start date to a task I am adding."

Settings -> Fields & Defaults. Make sure it's set as a field that's used.

As I browse every other task management app in the app store it is obvious why there has been such an uprising. They all look and feel quite similar (so does the previous 3.0.1 version of this app). It's a look and feel that we are all used to and it is the reason why we use iOS. I encourage the devs to look at Things, Wunderlist, Nozbe, ToDo... I admit that I'm a total geek when it comes to mobile computing but this app now looks like something I would find on Android (or windows XP); not to say that Android is terrible but, when designing an app I think it is important to tailor it to the OS and not try to have one design that fits onto all OS's.

I love Toodledo, however the "new" UI redesign is back and I hated it then, and I hate it now. I want my blue iPhone Toodledo App back. The new grey one is awful and has no appeal. The parts of the app to touch to go into the menus are smaller and harder to use. Bring back the classic-feel, or I'll have to dump this like I originally planned and start using the sh*tty iPhone Reminders app.

I'm sorry, but the re-redesign isn't much of an improvement.

My main complaints:
1) App start up time is much slower, making it frustrating to quickly check or add tasks (I have ~1700 tasks in my home account)
2) Folders and Tags are my most frequently used sections of the app, but these get tiny buttons compared to All Tasks, Hotlist, and Starred (which are my least frequently used sections). There is lots of vertical space for the side buttons - why not make them all equally sized? [I'm using an iPad Mini]
3) The items in the Folders and Tags lists are pretty small - not too small to read, but too small to function as buttons. The older version worked much better by giving these lists the working space of the entire sidebar.

I do expect that any performance issues and bugs will be fixed soon enough.
I hope you're right because that's the most important thing.

Glad I came to the forums first before upgrading the Toodledo app on my original iPad to the new version again. The app works fine/smooth/fast on it now (with the "old" look/style/version). The first time the new upgrade was pushed out - it never worked, always crashed or was super slow and sluggish.

I don't mind the new UI changes - they are different - but I'll get used to it.

Love Toodledo. Mostly use the web app on a desktop, but I've also got an iPhone with the app and the iPad. Hard to use the app on the iPad though when it doesn't work.

I have an iPhone 5 with iOS 6.1 and 900 tasks. The new rev level is slow. Especially during the search.

The more I use the new version, the more I see some strange design elements.

The "View Task by" fields are small, they have poor contrast, and they are not intuitive: Tap on the row to see the 5 recent selections in order of most recent, and tap on the arrow to see all. Not obvious what does what, but, fine, you learn, right? Except the lists of Priority, Due Date and Recent don't work that way -- you get the same list whether you tap the row or the arrow. So you'd think that maybe the rule is: For fields that have custom entries (like Context, Folders, Tags, Location and Goals), there's a difference between tapping on the row and tapping on the arrow. But, look at Status, which doesn't allow custom entries: All you see is "Next Action, Active, and Planning" if you tap on the row, and the list doesn't change based on what you chose previously. Confusing.

Of course, all of this could be less confusing if the app offered Saved Searches that synced with the website. Then there'd be no need to drill down to get what you want. Just a list of frequently-used Saved Searches at the top, with everything else relegated below.

Also, how about displaying the color for each item in the list of Priorities? Yes, it would be more work to program , given that you don't use color in the other lists (maybe you should?) but it would be a nice use of color that complements the Priority triangle.

And, speaking of the Priority triangle, how about allowing users to click on it to change the priority, similar to how a task can be Starred? Well, actually, it is poorly placed for any interactivity. In any case, it would require "tap-and-hold", which doesn't exist anywhere in the app even though it is used in several other task management and calendar apps.

There are buttons with dark blue on light blue on a slightly lighter blue background. A bit jarring in comparison to the rest of the app. I know that the first revised version did not have blue and I think that it was a mistake to add it to the current version, given that it is not integrated into the overall design.

The overall functionality of the app is good and the website/app syncing is great, but there are several website features that are missing in the app. Conversely, it is strange that Jake refers to website guidelines (W3C and WCAG 2.0) when designing an iOS app.

One more thing: It would be a good idea to have a Home button at the bottom of screen so that you can quickly get back to the main screen.

So what's the latest on this? The ticket I started regarding this problem was responded to but no real help provided. Toodledo useless on my Ipad 2.
