New Mobile Apps Almost Here

We have been working hard on our new native apps for iPhone, Android, iPad and Android tablets, and they are quite close to being finished.

Here are some highlights:

  • A new, cleaner look & feel for 2015
  • Inline checklists, just as in the desktop version
  • Faster prioritization (long-press, drag-up/down)
  • Better utilization of screen real-estate for both small and larger devices
  • Search!

And as there have been many requests for screenshots…

We have been leaning on a small subset of beta testers for validation of the code thus far, and hope to widen the pool a bit in the coming days. The list of known issues grows smaller by the day, and we hope to get to a publicly shippable state in the coming weeks.

Really looking forward to getting the new apps in your hands as soon as we can.

Happy New Year!

Here’s to a prosperous and productive 2015 !
We have a number of exciting things coming this year.
Looking forward to announcing them once we’re all back to work next week.

New Stuff – Tag Colors, ETA to Done, Search Improvements

Well this took longer than anticipated.  The update should apply itself automatically with a browser refresh.

What’s New?

  • Assign colors to your tags. This makes for nice, quick visual cues when scanning lists of actions. Assign colors to existing tags by right-clicking on them, either in the main window, the context bar, or when manging tags via the tag library dialog.


  • Find out how much time you need to complete a series of actions. Assuming you’ve assigned estimated Time (effort) required to complete your actions, you can now multi-select + right-click and look in the popup menu to see a quick tally of the time necessary to get to done


  • Search Improvements – searching on multiple words (that don’t appear next to each other) will return results as expected. Note, we’ve removed Logbook results to help speed things up. If you really need to find something in your Logbook, start your search with “in:logbook” followed by whatever search terms you desire. example – “in:logbook adam work” → et voila.

What else?

  • Long-running action/project names no longer bleed into UI elements from the right-side. This glitch used to manifest itself mainly for people with smaller screens, but hey, we have nothing against small screens.
  • Creating a new action in Focus / grouped by state / while filtered for Due items now works as intended. Used to be that pressing hotkey N wouldn’t display the “New Action” UI properly. Now it does.
  • As a first step towards overhauling our login towards a unified system, some login URLs have changed. But as we’ve placed redirects in all of the appropriate places, any existing bookmarks should continue to work fine.

Under the hood

This release is built on jQuery 2. It’s been many many months in the making (porting) and includes significant code refactoring for better performance across all browsers.
