Product Description

Simple, fun to-do list manager syncs your todo.txt file to Dropbox.

Countless apps and sites store your to-do list in their own proprietary database and file format. But you can open a todo.txt file with every text editor under the sun. Todo.txt manages your to-do list on the go and automatically syncs the file to all your computers and devices via Dropbox.

Future-proof your to-do list and store it in a plain text file YOU control. Todo.txt makes it easy to add, update and prioritize tasks, tag them with project names and contexts, search, filter, and most importantly, mark your tasks complete.

To use this app, you must have a Dropbox account (http://dropbox.com).

With Todo.txt you can:
- Keep your todo list in a documented, human-readable, plain text format.
- Save your todo.txt file in Dropbox for access from all your devices.
- Enter multiple tasks in a single input box.
- Perform batch updates (complete, prioritize, delete) to multiple selected tasks at once.
- Quickly filter and group tasks by project or context.
- Search your list by keyword.
- Sort your list by priority, date, or line number.
- See how long a task has been on your list.
- Archive completed tasks to a done.txt file.
- Dial a phone number or send an email directly from a task with a phone number or email address in it.
- Add a single or multiple tasks to your default calendar to create a reminder.
- Keep your list on your homescreen with a resizable, scrollable widget.
- Set up optional background sync at an interval you choose.
- Share selected tasks or the whole list via the Share menu.
- Send text from any other app on your phone, like email, into a new task via the Share menu.

Permissions required:
DROPBOX FULL ACCESS: Requires full access to your Dropbox account so that you can freely choose your todo.txt file's location (and so that other apps can access it as well).
FULL NETWORK ACCESS: To sync to Dropbox.
VIEW NETWORK CONNECTIONS: To determine whether or not syncing to Dropbox is possible.
RUN AT STARTUP: Only runs at startup if you enable automatic background sync in settings (disabled by default).

This app is one of the most imortant and most often used apps on my Kindle Fire. It is quick and easy to update my todo list, which means I actually do it. And Dropbox sync means I don't have to remember which of my machines has the most up to date copy.

Unfortunately, Amazon is selling the out-of-date version 1.0 that has a bug in its Dropbox syncing, which was fixed and released as version 1.0.1 on August 15.

** Update, Nov 12, 2012: Amazon now has v1.0.2 which updates Dropbox correctly.

This is one of those things that's a PRETTY GOOD idea, but falls short of the mark in so many LITTLE ways it just leaves you frustrated that it's SO CLOSE to be GREAT.

For MANY, esp people who already have Dropbox installed on their computers, people who are using a command line all the time (huh?) this would be a fine purchase.

I'm a programmer, and while I appreciate the CONCEPT and PRICE, there are just a FEW more things I'd like to see in this to reach a very good level of usefulness I'm going to have to keep looking.

I'm inserting this as I've found some things which have made me go REALLY sour on this.

1) Changing the priority of even one task MAKE THE THING HANG? (I have to quit the app then return. At least the changes worked, but WTF?) I have synch set to MANUAL - so connectivity isn't/shouldn't be an issue.

I have like 20 tasks TOTAL and changing a single line in a simple text file makes it HANG?

2) DELETING multiple tasks makes it HANG?

3) Looking for HELP - it seems the only help is about using a command line interface. REALLY? The author seems to have the INSANE idea that people using SMART PHONES and TOUCH TABLETS want to somehow use a command line interface? I run Linux, but hell if I want to open a shell to type out a long line of code (watch your typing!) to update a freakin' "to-do list".

Back to the original review:

Every time I use it, I end up saying how I wish it did this or that:

1) I'd love to be able to simply order things by dragging these things up and down. You can "sort" by any number of text-handling ways, but on my phone, I just want to drag items up and down.

2) I'd love to be able to nest and collapse things, even just a single level.

Gina's great app has shown up in the Amazon App-Store.

This app ties directly into the todo.txt architecture (see [...] ), where a simple text file is kept in a dropbox folder, and contains your todo list. The ingenuity is the simplicity, as the text file can be viewed in anything, and the simple (read: elegant) syntax can be edited by anyone.

This app makes remote viewing and editing of your todo.txt effortless.

The only downside is that one has to actually DO what is on the TODO!

This is a simple yet effective app. Works flawlessly for my reminders and lists. The developer is wonderful she gives back many times the cost of the app with her presence on TWIG love all she does. Thank you Gina for all you give.

I found the todo.txt CLI online and loved it. I was glad to see the app for my Android phone. I like that it syncs with my Dropbox allowing me to access the same file from my computer or phone. Great job Gina on keeping a simple todo list simple.

I had to contact the developer and she was very fast to respond to me and she immediately took care of my concern. 2 thumbs way up. The app is really good and I enjoy using it.

I can't speak highly enough of this application. It takes the concepts used by the todo.txt command line tools and effectively transfers them to a graphic, touch screen environment. the Dropbox integration allows me to keep my phone, tablet, and Linux laptop in sync. I have become more productive because of this, which my boss certainly appreciates.
