Todo.txt for Android & Chrome – Unified supporter status

Unified supporter status is coming soon (experimental)

Unified supporter status will enable access to Supporter features on both Todo.txt apps—Chrome and Android—as long as you have an active supporter subscription on either one.

No action is required by you. Both apps will automatically sync the existing and new subscriptions.

Privacy & data

To enable the unified supporter status, the app uploads a secure, irreversible hash of your email address and provider name (Dropbox or Google Drive), along with your subscription order id to a secure server. When you login to the Todo.txt app with same email address and file provider on another platform, the app will automatically sync your supporter status from the server, and provide full access to supporter features.

The email address is hashed inside the app before uploading to the server, so the server never sees the real email address, only its encrypted hash. The privacy statement is updated for these changes.

Please do get in touch using the in-app feedback form if you have any queries about this change.

Other details
  • Supporter sync only works when using Dropbox or Google Drive for syncing because local file syncing is not supported in the Chrome extension.
  • Supporter sync is only available to paying supporters. Syncing is not available for reward tokens.
  • There may be a delay of 24 hours after subscription before supporter features are available on the other app.
  • Supporter sync is only tested on official Chrome browser. It will probably not work if you are using another Chrome-based browser—Vivaldi, Edge, Brave, or others.
  • If you are a supporter but don’t see supporter access in the app, please contact me using the feedback form in the app where you joined as supporter.

Experimentally enabled from v 2020.608.8.34 of the Chrome extension, and v 2020.0608.4.3 of the Android app.

Settings for default projects & contexts

Added new settings for adding projects and contexts to new tasks:

Todo.txt for Android – v 2018.0814.1.3

Updates

Added task archiving

Archive completed tasks to your archive file by selecting ‘Archive completed tasks‘ from the options menu.

This moves the completed tasks from your tasks file to the archive file, and clears them from the app. If you have switched on the ‘Clean projects‘ setting, archiving also cleans unused projects.

Auto-archive

Auto-archive archives tasks to the archive file automatically as soon as they are marked complete. ‘Auto-archive‘ may be switched on from settings.

Auto-archive only clears tasks marked complete in the app, and not completed tasks synced from Dropbox (marked complete in another app or CLI)

Also smashed some minor bugs.
