So I have only been using Toodledo for a few days now (and FF plugin for an hour - ya 3.5 compat) but it is hands down the best functional todo tool out there. A few polish suggestions:

- The option to control the text size in the various widgets would be great
- The Gmail widget text must be reduced as only 50% of the widget is viewable (i realize Google doesn't give much room and that's not your fault) Perhaps dropping the star below the checkbox would help squeeze into that small space
- The FF Addon should fit the window... either make the "add task" link smaller or the window larger - the scrollbar at the bottom shouldn't be needed
- The link in the Addon settings should open in a new window/tab as right now if you click it opens in the sidebar which isn't very useful
- Another nice feature would be the ability to turn off links on the menu bar on the main site... for instance - I will never use the booklet feature (i have a smartphone) so if i could uncheck that link and have a cleaner interface that would be great.

I'll continue to pass along little nits as I find them but the core app is great. Get the interface polished and you guys will be unstoppable!

Instead of removing sidebar links, you can minimize the sidebar and remember some basic URLs instead. Such as -

See where I'm going with this? Minimizing the sidebar makes the website much more minimal. Although, this may not work for all sidebar links (ie History) but that's what bookmarks are for. I have simple things like "tadd" takes me to a window at or "tnote" takes me to the Notebook link, etc. This is with Firefox keywords by the way but a similar way to use this with Safari can be made with GlimmerBlocker (

Hope that helps.

Garfield - yeah I found the sidebar minimize button right after i posted this (Murphy's law) but I still think the option to remove sidebar links (deep in the settings somewhere) would be nice.

Toodledo - I found you can resize the addon width (but the default should still be wide enough to not have the scroll bar).
- filters on the addon would be great too (either mirroring the web site defaults or set separately). For instance, I have a repeating task on Thursday but I can't do it before Thursday. Using >Date it displays properly in the web site (with future tasks hidden) but it shows up in the addon.
- I noticed after power cycling my iPhone the Toodled app didn't display the hotlist number on the home screen until I reopened the app. Not a big deal but FYI.

BTW the right click context addon feature is AWESOME. Totally one ups the one nice thing about Google Tasks in Gmail. :)

Great App. After wasting many dollars on useless apps for my iphone toodledo has finally risen to the challenge. It would however be GREAT if the features in the sidebar on the web version such as the notebook would also sync with iphone instead of just the todo list.
