And there may never be a Renaissance

I had used List Master for Android for several years as my grocery list, but had been looking for something else as it had become crash prone and the developer seemed to have stopped work on it. After reviewing several apps, I too settled on Mighty Grocery. I'm still getting it set up the way I want on the free version of the app so I can test it.

I wanted an app with a actual pick list that I could check against when preparing a shopping list. Unlike Mighty Grocery, this seemed to be rarity among the other apps.

If it meets my needs, I'll purchase the app for myself and my wife for syncing purposes. Ben, have you had any hiccups with the sync?

I’m very much interested in 2-step authentication; however, I have a couple of questions before attempting to implement it.

1) How do you get the phone app that generates and displays the one-time code? And is there an app for both iPhone and Android?

2) I use Ultimate ToDo List on my Android phone. Until it upgrades to support 2-step authentication, how would I go about setting up an application specific password (as opposed to the normal Toodledo password)? Is this set up within Toodledo or UTDL?

Thank you! This was the biggest issue I had with Toodledo. This will make life much easier.

I think you may need to make certain you're being effective first and foremost. Then concentrate on being efficient. Otherwise, you may never reach any of your goals. At times we find ourselves feeling that we're spinning our wheels day after day with no clear way to remove ourselves from that regime. And the more hectic our lives become, the faster we spin, but we realize one day that we're going absolutely nowhere. We may be an efficient wheel spinner, but we find out that isn't an effective way to reach any of our goals.

With your two young children, you have basic responsibilities that must be taken care of day after day. As you note, taking care of your children are your top priority, and that is as it should be. Those responsibilities are non-negotiable. Decide what those responsibilities are, and be as efficient as you can at completing them. Speaking from experience, it's important to remember that in the interest of time, we sometimes need to work towards a satisfactory completion instead of striving for a perfect one.

Take your other two priorities or goals, which appear to be getting your household in order and preparing to return to the work force. Set dates that you want to have each completed, and then break them down into large steps, and break those large steps into smaller, manageable steps. Set completion dates for the major steps to make certain you stay on track to meeting your overall goal. And make certain to work towards completing at least one small step each day.

Every journey begins with a single step. And each person's journey is different from everyone else's. The journey may not always be easy, but if there were no valleys, there would also be no mountains.

Good luck!

Thanks for the reply. Formatting for the "long text" in the Lists section is exactly what I've been hoping for. I can imagine that implementing such a feature in a new section of your database such as Lists is easier than trying to modify a much more complicated section such as Tasks. However, I hope your future timeframe is more a near future, rather than later (and if I had formatting, I would have put this last sentence in red underlined text).

Thanks for your continuing development. I find Toodledo unsurpassed in the features I need.

While your message is deleted, I see your title. I totally agree that a WYSIWIG note editor is needed, but Toodledo notes are BASIC (did I say BASIC?), and I'm beginning to suspect that we'll never see anything more than HTML tags. I still use them, and find them helpful, but a polished note editor may never appear. And unlike some sites that roadmap their development, Toodledo definitely takes an opposite business model.

Hope I'm wrong about the editor though. If one appears from your support ticket, I will definitely start submitting more tickets myself!

You can click the circular Actions icon to the left of the task, and it will show you when the task was created, but you have to do it for each individual task.

Jake, could you elaborate a little further on your comment? Editing a note in Word with bold, italicized, underlined, and bulleted, and then copying and pasting into a Toodledo note only brings across the bulleted items for me. Bold, italicized, and underlined text doesn't come across. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding your reply.

While not a function of Toodledo, I do this by going to the All Tasks folder, showing details, and then using Chrome's find feature to search for the keyword I'm looking for.

Thanks for this feature. It is one of those basic features that had been missing. I hope this is a start of things to come!

Anyone on here using the Samsung Galaxy Note II? If so, what has been your experience with it?

I'm with Verizon and today was the first day it was in stores, but I know it has been out earlier with other carriers. It's a huge phone and I've been waiting to see if it was too big, but find I can use it no problem. A phone/tablet hybrid with the included stylus is unique, and I find it amazing to use. But that's based only on 20 minutes or so of trying it out in the store. Anyone with more experience, please let me know your thoughts.

Mark, it won't solve your problem since you have an iphone, but for those who have an Android phone and use Ultimate To-Do List, UTDL has a nagging reminder feature that does exactly what you're looking for.

This is still not available as far as I know.

As time goes on, it has turned into a rare occurrence that you will see a core functionality change made to Toodledo. Reading Toodledo's comments in these forums, it is normally an extreme reluctance to discuss changes other than to acknowledge that the change request has been received.

While the reasons for reluctance to change may be many, I suspect it is because Toodledo is so robust a system that one such change may have a ripple effect throughout their system and the chance of errors may increase. And any changes made affects other vendors' products which sync with Toodledo.

While I am sure Toodledo keeps a tally of requests (I know I would if I were selling such a product), they decline to discuss what their top priorities are. I am sure this is because they don't want to make promises they can't deliver in a timely manner and also because they might not want their competition to know their plans. This cuts both ways in that customers wanting certain features have no idea if or when their requests might happen (or even how popular their request might be), and for core feature requests, Toodledo's competition are probably already working on the same feature implementations themselves if they don't already feature it. Core functionality is by defintion core.

That being said, I enjoy working in Toodledo. I find it the most feature rich task manager for my needs. Using it and Ultimate To Do List on my phone provides a nearly seamless sync for all of my tasks. I simply work around any shortcomings I find. And speaking of Ultimate To Do List, Ultimate has more of an open policy on feature requests, and their users know where feature requests rank, something that I think Toodledo's community as a whole would find enjoyable.

On the toolbar above the displayed tasks and to the right of the sort options, there is an icon to show/hide details. This is what you're looking for.

Go to the help section and search for multi-edit, and see if this is what you have been searching for.

And try Ultimate To-Do List. It's Android based and it syncs great with Toodledo.

Thanks for the update.

And yes, I know it's pointless to guess which feature is tough for you to implement, but my bet (or hope) for improved usability is either:

1) Saved sorts unique to each view's individual tabs

2) Rich Text Format for notes

Posted by Toodledo:
This is something that is on our to-do list, but the main purpose of this idea is to save 2-6 mouse clicks. While this is certainly important, it is not what we would call a critical feature, so we have been focusing more on things that cannot be done at all, like mobile access and sharing. We will get to it eventually.


If this request only involved saving 2-6 mouse clicks I would agree with you; however, the more important issue for me is trying to remember my sorting criteria which can vary across each view's individual tabs. I find myself having to stop and think through the program itself instead of concentrating on the task at hand. As I stated above, it's counterintuitive.

I'm not sure if this would be complicated to implement or not, but I find the saving of sort criteria only slightly less important as saving the search criteria itself.

For someone who lives in saved searches, the lack of saved sorts unique to each view's individual tabs proves to be my biggest frustration with Toodledo on a day-to-day basis. Trying to remember and then reset sort patterns per tab is counterintuitive. I truly hope this is high up on Toodledo's to-do list.

That said, I find Toodledo to be far more capable than other similar services for my needs. It is a plus to even have the option of three sort levels. Now, if it could only be tweaked a little....
