Thanks for the information. I have been using the Ultimate To-Do List since I started using an Android a year and a half ago, and it has worked well for me.

I have just downloaded the official Toodledo app and see exactly how to enable this feature. (The first time I used "Note to Self," it presented me with the choices of sending the note to Gmail, Evernote, or Toodledo, along with the option to do so once or always.

This post is for Android users and shows how you can use the voice input through Google Now to get tasks into Toodledo.

I use the "Note to Self" command in Google Now to get to-dos into my system. Specifically, they wind up in my email with the subject line "note to self" and the message I spoke in the body of the email. The word recognition is excellent.

I have gone a step further. Using IFTTT, I have written a recipe which sends that email to Toodledo and flips the message (the original to-do you spoke) up into the subject line.

I wrote about what I did and give detailed information on exactly how to set up the IFTTT recipe in a recent blog post. The post is located at: http://frankbuck.blogspot.com/2014/01/how-to-add-tasks-to-toodledo-using.html

If you wind up using it and liking it, I would enjoy hearing from you.

Evernote is a great place to take meeting notes. Reviewing the notes to copy and paste the "to-dos" included in those notes is a necessary step. I remember an earlier thread along the same lines, and Troy.Christmas responded that he was working on a solution.

I ran across the fruits of his labor, and it looks really good. "TaskClone.com" (free 30 days and then dirt cheap after that) works as follows: 1) Take your notes in Evernote; 2) Precede any statement which is a "to-do" with the checkbox icon; 3) When the note is saved, any and all statements preceded with checkboxes are sent via your Toodledo email address to Toodledo. In the note section of that task is a link to the note in Evernote. Another feature allows you to add dates from your Evernote notes into your Google calendar. I have been working with it for a couple of days, and it appears to work well.

Jake,

Thanks for the reply. I will put a post on my blog explaining how I am doing it. When the post publishes, I will put a link to it here for other Android users who might want to do the same thing.

I have read that the capability exits to creates reminders with Siri which flow into Toodledo. For Android users, is there a way to to-dos through Google Now which flow through Toodledo. I have accomplished something that is working well for me using #IFTTT as a go-between but wanted to know if there was something there already that I am missing.

Fantastic. With more and more good things about Chrome (and me being an Android user), moving to Chrome as my primary browser was seeming like a better and better idea. This one thing (the search now being as quick as on Firefox) is making my decision for me.

One related question, though. I have a personal homepage which includes the Toodledo widget (m.toodledo.com). It loads OK on Firefox but in Chrome gives a message "Loading Data" but never loads. Not a biggie, since I do my work straight from the Toodledo site, but wondering if there is an easy fix I am missing.

Thanks,
Frank

I just tried the same think I have tried before...doing a search on Toodledo using Chrome. Now, even the first search quick, just as quick as it is on Firefox.

Do you know if something has changed on Chrome or has there been an enhancement to Toodledo?

Thanks,
Frank

Glad to see that someone else is seeing the same thing. Again, the slowness happens on the FIRST search following a refresh.

With Chrome becoming a more and more popular browser and with more power, this point will become important to more people.

I use Toodledo with Firefox as my browser. When I enter a term in the quick search window, the list quickly shrinks to only those items which meet the search criteria. When I do the same thing in Chrome, here is what happens:
1. The first search I do is EXTREMELY SLOW.
2. From there on, the searches are as quick as on Firefox...unless I refresh the screen.
3. When I refresh the screen, the next search is extremely slow again.
4. I have tried the same thing on each computer I have (desktop running Windows 7, laptop running XP, and laptop running Windows 8), all with the same result.

Can anyone tell me what is happening with the quick searches in Chrome?

Thanks,
Frank Buck

When you enter a search term in the window, do you find the search to be extremely slow?

The first search I do is very slow. If I perform another search (using the same or different search term), the search is very quick. The search will remain quick UNTIL I refresh. Then, the next search is very slow.

Firefox is my main browser, and all searches are extremely quick.

I have an idea it has something to do with some sort of indexing of the tasks, but I just don't have enough knowledge there. Can anyone educate me there?

This is a great feature. I see an even bigger need for something like this with a tablet. Are there any plans that will allow you to quickly grab the URL while you are on a tablet and put it in a task?
