Just wanted to give you a little information on the upcoming update (still working on it and will be submitting it within the next couple days) 1.2 to Taskly.
I’ve found a few bugs myself, but many of the bugs I’ve fixed for this update have been found by you, the users. It is very important for me to listen to my customers and find out what kind of issues you all are experiencing and fixing those issues as soon as possible.
Another great importance to me is features, not just any features, but the features you all want. I’ve been listening and this update will have a few new features. The main feature everyone seems to want is some sort of external application that Taskly would sync with. My plans for this are to have a Web Interface, iPad app, and later this year have a Mac and Windows app to all sync seamlessly with each other. Look forward to these great things.
One other issue that many of you are experiencing has to do with reminders (push notifications). I wish I could make this system work more flawlessly, but I can’t and that is due to the nature of which push notifications work. What happens is when any changes are made in Taskly by you, Taskly attempts to sync with my server. If Taskly finds that your device is not connected to the internet or the internet connection has a poor signal, those changes do not get synced and Taskly attempts to sync at a later time. Well, if you’ve just marked a task that was past due, as complete, or deleted the task and it doesn’t get synced to the server, you are going to receive a push notification reminder because the data on the server is has not been updated. This can seem annoying, but I have tried to make the system work to the best of its ability and am continuing to look into bettering that system.
Some good news is, once OS 4.0 comes out, local notifications will be implemented into Taskly which will allow me to make notifications work flawlessly on your devices
Anyhow, here are the bugs, changes, and features that I have got for 1.2 so far:
- Fix: Deleted lists were still showing in the Move Task Dialog
- Fix: Was not possible to move tasks into a Subtask List or Checklist that resided in the Inbox
- Fix: Removed “New Themes” Notification Type
- Fix: Push notification reoccurrence removed
- Fix: Deferring a task was not auto syncing with the server
- Fix: After quick adding a context, wrong icons showed up in top right
- Fix: Sometimes changing a checklist to a subtask list would cause the app to crash
+ Added defer to multi task edit, now you can defer multiple tasks at a time
+ Added consecutive quick adds to the root of the home view (when viewing all your lists)
= After adding a task via quick add and tapping the keyboards done button to continue adding tasks, the top left button changes to a Done button instead of Cancel
= Changed the look of the multi task edit buttons
I’ll be working on some more things in the next few days and 1.2 will be submitted ASAP. Thanks for all your support and input, I greatly appreciate it.
