When at the gym and on an aerobic machine, the > blood flow to my brain seems to stimulate thinking. IOWs I'm constantly coming up with new tasks, task modifications and web snippets--so I turn sync off to allow for my constant open, closing and task change within the app.
With sync off I would expect there to be no app hesitation in allowing a New Task upon opening the app. However, it seems that the app, with sync off, wants to check back with you before allowing the New Task button to work--or at least that's the impression I get for the app not immediately responding to the button.
In summary, if all sync is turned off, shouldn't access to the New Task button (or the settings button) be instantaneous?
You should be able to access all parts of the app instantaneously regardless of the sync setting. I believe the app is stalling for a few seconds because it is trying to schedule alarms and calculate due-dates. We are looking into this.
FYI--the app is unresponsive during sync (that's why I turn same off at the gym). But I presumed the app couldn't do both sync and perform at the same time so I didn't mention this in my post.
If sync is on and I can Add a Task before sync starts then the typing will stall and type ahead characters will be held in the buffer until sync is complete otherwise if sync had started before and I hit the button and then attempt the button, the button is unresponsive until after sync completion.
