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.


Todo.txt for Chrome – App changing to Extension


Thank you for using Todo.txt App for Chrome

Google ends support for Chrome Apps

Google has announced end of support for Chrome Apps across all platforms, except ChromeOS.

This change has dramatically reduced the potential user base for the app. It also handicaps development of the app going forward, since I don’t own a Chromebook.

The Chrome app & extension will need other updates too. I plan to add support for syncing with Google Drive. And, Dropbox has announced end of support for their old API that the apps use, so I’ll need to update the apps to work with new API.

Considering these changes, I have decided to focus future development on the Todo.txt Chrome extension, and gradually end support for the Todo.txt Chrome App. I strongly request you to give the Todo.txt extension a try.
