We consulted with some very good designers for this project and they made the suggestion (that we agreed with) that the most important part of a to-do list is the customer's data, and that the UI shouldn't distract from this data.
Who are these "very good designers"?
How many of your very good customers did you consult?

Also, what are the "over 100" improvements that you mention in the thread title? When you state a number, you should provide a list that confirms that number.
Saved Searches / Nested Subtasks / Full Collaboration / File Attachments
These features from our main website have been on our to-do list for the iPhone app for a long time. Too long, I admit it. We have had some difficulty with our iOS development pipeline this past year, but this update did a lot of work behind the scenes to clean things up and make future development quicker. These four features are at the top of our list and as soon as we get the bugs worked out we will release them to you.
1. Why has it been so long? Those features were requested three years ago.
2. If you've had some difficulty with your iOS development pipeline, why did you undertake a complete overhaul of the user interface?
3. You've been saying for a while that those features are near the top of the list. Given that the four features are now at the "top" of your list, does that mean that the next major update will include at least one of them?
4. How are you working out the bugs? Do you have any beta testers or are you relying solely on your inhouse team?

Meanwhile, Saved Searches, Nested Subtasks, and photo attachments are available in Pocket Informant, along with many options for customizing the appearance. Appigo's Todo has a very nice interface on the iPhone and is a great app if you don't use Start Dates, Goals and Sharing. Besides syncing with Toodledo, both apps offer Dropbox backup, along with syncing to their own task management website, but they don't yet offer the range of features available on Toodledo's website.

I've been using the Toodledo app from the day that it was introduced in 2008. I've tried many other task apps and I've kept coming back to Toodledo, mainly because of the robust syncing, and despite the user interface.

Yesterday, for the first time, I deleted the Toodledo app from my iPhone and my iPad. I doubt that I'll re-install it soon.

Can someone please recommend a different task app that syncs with Toodledo? I need to find something else to use quick!
Todo by Appigo and Pocket Informant by WebIS are the two best iOS apps that sync with Toodledo.

Actually, this is Jake's brilliant attempt at cashing in on the popularity of "50 Shades of Grey" ...

In version 3.1, Jake will get rid of the colors in the Settings icons and replace them with a whole new palette of greys. ;-)

Also, he says that there are over 100 improvements. 100=50 x 2, so the Toodledo app is at least twice as good as the book. Just wondering, though, about the list of all those improvements.

I want to add that the new UI is problematic not just because it "doesn't look good," but the choice of colors makes it just plain hard to read. "Medium Grey" letters over a "slightly less medium grey" background? Or, my favorite, white lettering over a light grey background?
I agree. And no option to change any of the colors.

The update addresses one of the biggest problems with the old version: Filters and Sorting options were not obvious. Now it's much clearer. Also, it's easier to navigate between various Views, and there are a lot of nice touches (like having the short list for each view show the three most recently selected items.)

But ...
1. No Saved Searches
2. No ability to have a different Sort for each View.
3. No ability to assign Tasks.
4. No file attachments for Pro Plus members.
5. And still only three icons in the bottom toolbar when there's obviously room for five. How about one for the Hotlist and one for Recent? Or making the toolbar customizable?

It's obvious that Jake and his team have spent a lot of time redesigning the app and it must be disheartening to hear negative comments after all that hard work. It's also clear, though, that Jake is sticking to his opinion that the user requests in these forums are of minimal importance when deciding which new features to introduce. I haven't seen a single post by a user asking for grey instead of black fonts, but there are many requests for Saved Searches, Sharing, and file attachments. It's Jake's decision to proceed with whatever he thinks is right.

For now, it's my decision to use the Toodledo app for my secondary account, which I use every couple of months for my packing list. For my main Toodledo account -- the one that I use everyday -- I am using another app.

When you create a task (no date) in Google Tasks -> Create a default task in Toodledo.

When you create a Google Task with a reminder -> Create a default Toodledo task without a date with a reminder.

When you create a Google Calendar Event -> Create a Toodledo task with the date as a due date.
Have you contacted Google and insisted that they implement this in the NEAR future?

Actually, it's not "the posts that say".
It was one post by Salgud. He was being facetious. Or, maybe sarcastic. Perhaps even sardonic.

Unfortunately, no.

The only way of hiding the Context column is by disabling the Context field in Settings, but, after you do that, you can't filter by Context. Also, you won't have access to the Context field for editing, viewing, or sorting.

You can move the location of the Context column but any change that you make will affect all Views. See http://www.toodledo.com/info/help.php?sel=62

In those cases, this method frankly blows the doors off a saved search. :)
You must have some very flimsy doors ... ;)

Anyway, it's a nice tip. I prefer viewing the actual tasks.

I have a Saved Search for completed tasks. The CTRL-F feature works (although I rarely use it), and when I find the task, I can actually do something with it, e.g. copy, edit, clone, delete, or "un-complete". Viewing the completion date requires sorting by "Date Completed", which takes a few extra seconds, but it's worth it to have direct access to the tasks.

Yes, it is possible.
When you enter a task's Due Date, you can specify "optionally on" instead of "Due by". (There are two other choices: "Due on" and "Due after".)

If a repeating task is "Optionally on" a day, and you don't check off the task on that day, it will repeat the next day as a new "non-overdue" task.

On a computer, use two browsers, e.g. Chrome and Firefox. You can have a different account in each browser.

On an iPhone, use two apps (Toodledo and Todo), or use the Toodledo app for one account and use Safari (or another browser) to access the other account at the mobile website htttp://m.toodledo.com.
On the iPad, the full website is usable.

Posted by Peter Scott:
I spend 98% of my time on the search page.
So you get all your work done in the remaining 2% of your time? ;) Just kidding. I know what you mean.

Saved Searches are the best way of reviewing tasks and projects. All the other Views require too much jumping around. Main problem with Saved Searches, though, is that you can't save the Sort order. The other problem is that they are not available on the iPhone/iPad app.

I stopped using the Toodledo app because I found it too awkward to switch among the views that I need. I now use Appigo's Todo, which I think is a bit better for reviewing tasks and projects. I find it much easier to select Contexts and Tags, but there are several missing features: limited sorting, can't hide future tasks or deferred tasks, and no way of identifying recently entered or recently modified tasks. (And several other Toodledo features missing.) Todo does not have Saved Searches. 2Do, another iOS app, does have custom searches but does not allow Folders and Contexts -- it's one or the other.

Anyway, I think that Toodledo will be introducing some new features soon. It's been a while since a major update and that usually means that they're working on something big. My guess is that it will be Sharing and Collaboration on the iOS app, but it could be Saved Searches. Or, the major changes will be to the website, with minimal impact to the iOS app.
We'll see.

It is much more effective to work with desktop version than with web application.
Given that Nozbe already has a desktop version (which will make you "much more effective" right now), why do you want a desktop version of Toodledo?

I am not trying to offend anyone, but if Toodledo had a better interface it would soon be the champion of the task managers.
Who do you think is the current "champion of the task managers"?

Did you set an Alarm?

Quick Search does not look in Tags. I guess you'll have to use Tags lightly ...

If you go to Settings, Tasks, Display Preferences, you can click "Sort tags alphabetically".
