Todo.txt for Android – v 2018.0817.1.6


Removed Dropbox’s chooser library. Replaced with directly launching Dropbox to select task and archive files.

Bug fixes

  • Reset file chooser screen when back is pressed in Dropbox while selecting file location
  • Hide keyboard when task file location is confirmed (manual file location screen)
  • Disable back and up buttons on file location screen once file location has been changed (confirm only via ‘Done‘ button)

Todo.txt for Android – v 2018.0817.1.4


Settings for default projects & contexts

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

Add ‘filtered project/context‘ to new task text – switched on by default

Set ‘default project/context‘. This project and/or context will be added to the new task text when the previous setting is off, or when the list is unfiltered.

Other updates & bug fixes

Suggest default contexts and tags when there are no contexts in the user’s task list.

Bug Fixes
  • Check file path format when provided using manual text entry
  • Add default / filter projects to subsequent tasks when creating new tasks – was being added only for the first task
  • Also smashed some minor bugs

Todo.txt for Android – v 2018.0814.1.3


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 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.

Todo.txt for Android – v 2018.0809.1.1


Long press to start selecting tasks

Long press a task to select it, and to enter task selection mode for quick editing.

In the initial release, a simple tap selected the task and switched to task selection mode. This caused overlap confusion between tapping on task (to select), and tapping on a project/context tag (to filter list by it).

Now, long press selects a task. Once a task has been selected, the more can be selected by tapping on them.

When in selection mode, the header shows number of tasks selected.

Text descriptions for task actions

Added text descriptions to the quick edit bar shown in task selection mode.

I may, in a future version add a setting to toggle this text description off.
