Todo.txt for Chrome – v. 2018.0816.7.7

New in this version: Filtered task count in badge

By default, the extension button shows the number of pending tasks. It can now be configured to show just the number of filtered tasks. The count automatically updates when you change the filter in the extension window.

To enable filtered task count, open extension options[^1] and select ‘Count tasks filtered in extension‘, instead of the default ‘Count all pending tasks‘.

Do share your feedback on this update here.

Minor updates & bug fixes

  1. Cleaned up appearance for task due date and completion date when no creation date is present
  2. Dimmed edit & delete icons in list when not focused

An early beta version of my Todo.txt app for Android is now available in the Play Store.

    Incomplete > Priority > Due date > Created date

Extra feature:

  1. Home screen widget to show count of tasks
    • configure the widget to count tasks by project, due, and/or completion state

Constraints:

  1. Works on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) or newer
  2. Requires a Dropbox account, syncs with todo.txt file stored in Dropbox
  3. Only English language supported (translation help welcome)
  4. The final version, when released, may require a subscription/payment for some features

Todo.txt for Chrome – v. 2018.0806.7.4

New in this version

Quickly change due dates in task list

Press ‘d‘ while a task is selected to bring up due date selector. Select from one of the frequent options, or pick a custom date.

Filter for due tasks

Use filter ‘is:due‘ to show due tasks – incomplete tasks with a due date of today or in the past. As usual, you can combine this with other filters, e.g. ‘is:due @work‘ would list due tasks @work.

Minor updates & bug fixes

  1. Correctly parse project & context names – non-text characters were incorrectly parsed.
  2. Add support for page up/down while scrolling task list.
  3. Correctly parse completed tasks that do not have a completion date.

Need beta testers for a new Todo.txt Android app

I’m developing a new Todo.txt app for Android devices, and need some beta testers to help with feedback on features, and bug discovery.

The app is still in development, and will initially support just the core feature set: create, edit, search for, and mark tasks complete/incomplete. It also has a home screen widget that shows pending tasks – all or for specific projects or contexts.

If you are interested in being a beta tester, and own an Android phone that runs Android Marshmallow (Android 6.0) or newer version, please fill in this form. I shall get in touch when the beta is open.

 

AR\ Instapaper – Google Analytics removed

ver. 2018.9601.4.8

Google Analytics completely removed

AcceleReader used Google Analytics to track which settings and functions were being used – to help focus developer attention on what was being used.

I have now completely removed all analytics tracking from the extension. The only network requests the extension now makes are to the Instapaper servers. Other than that, the extension does not use any network requests, ensuring any user data stays on the computer.

This also means that I shall have no insight into features that are popular, or broken. So, please share your views using the feedback link in the extension (or by going here).
