On my iPod Touch, if Toodledo is doing a synchronisation, I am not able to even READ a note, but get the error message "Sync in Progress - please wait for the current sync to finish before editing a task" when I click on the "Read Note" button. This is extremely annoying when all I want to do is READ a task note. At the very least the error message is wrong, because it says "...before EDITING a task".
I think that it should allow me to READ a task note while the editing is happening.
Good point, and I think this may have already been fixed. I am running a beta of a future version of the app, and I can read notes during synchronization, so perhaps Toodledo has already changed what you are seeing.
I add an item, then try to change the folder and it tells me to wait until sync has finished, but I have sync on startup and edit both turned off. Why is it trying to sync (don't have a current wifi connection).
I'n not sure why it would do that. If you have notifications enabled, the app has to connect to authenticate each time you open it per Apple's rules. However, it is not syncing, so I don't know if that could be related or not.
