  1. Coloured background

    Ok, the app is brilliantly flexible and I love it, but can we get colored background choice to make it more enjoyable to use than what looks like an unfinished template. It's well worth spicing it up to look as excellent as it works. Not everything is black and white in this world and this is so good, let it shine. Can't be that hard and it will stand out more as a polished app in the store.

  2. Create additional Display Options on the Widget (match the App's View Display Options)

    The Apps View has the ability to use the left & right areas under the task title to display additional task attributes. The Widget only permits 1 attribute on the left side under the task title. Could the Widget Display Options / view be changed to allow an additional display attribute on the right side?

  3. Add an option for task dividers that are in color and for every day there is a task.

    Presently there are dividers for large windows of time like past month or past week. When I have a lot of tasks I would like to see dividers in color for each day there are tasks for example "Monday Jan 25, 2016". That way I can show a lot of completed and non-completed tasks and still focus on today's or tomorrow's or next friday's tasks.

  4. create a Field for People Connection

    I want to link a name to a task - but that name is not in my contacts. Why can't I just type in a name, any name, and have it linked to a specific task?

  5. Position of Delete text button (cross icon) on task subject (on Edit task pages) is annoying

    There is a button (cross icon) on the Edit task pages just beside the textbox for the task subject.
    It it used to delete the whole text from that text box.

    While useful it should me moved to another location since many times I end up clicking on it by accident when I am just trying to place the cursor on the text of that region.

    Hope I was clear enough on what the issue is :-)
    I would move it somewhere else, such as just before the textbox or outside the textbox.

  6. Add a feature to push back the due date for a particular instance of a repeating task without changing the set due date for future instances

    Sometimes I don't get a repeating task done by the due date so if it happens with a few tasks they tend to clog up my overdue for a while. But I don't want to advance the due date as it seems that will change the due date for all future instances. I would like to be able to postpone the due date without affecting the repeating task.

  7. Change notification icon

    The notification icon (clock) is easily confused with Android alarm icon. I understand you are following google guidelines but at least use the same icon that appears on the android drop-down notification drawer.

  8. On-the-fly Filtering of Tasks (Multi-select in navigation pane)

    It's not currently possible to multi-select in the navigation tree for some reason.

    This is the first thing the user will try - before realizing its not possible and they have to start to create tons of views (even for the simplest filtration..).

    This is a MANDATORY feature of any task software. Think about it :)

    Let's say I would like to display all my tasks with the context of @errands - but only those who belongs to my "Private" project... what do I do? Yes. I try to select first @errands, then I try long-pressing it, hoping to get…

  9. Allow users to embed & launch the application necessary to complete the to-do from the to-do. Like camera or Twitter or SHealth.

    When creating to-do, I would like to be able to launch other apps directly from to-do list similar to how I can go to a contact now directly from a to do now. Say the task is to check my heart rate. I could get an alert and instead of fumbling through my home screen and app drawer looking for the heart rate monitoring app, I could have associated the app with the to-do when I created the to-do and go to the app directly from the reminder with one click. Voice recognition often does not include the app I…

  10. Show total time for tasks with sub-tasks

    Tasks with sub-tasks should show the sum of their sub-tasks' expected and actual time spent. This would make the software usable for project planning and tracking. It is also what most users would expect, I guess. (see also the related request "Length - show total (sum) for a view or a folder")

  11. Pebble Integration

    I would love an integration with pebble. This is how I would hope to use it.

    1) Show list of actions based on a saved search / filter - Most Important
    2) Add a task via voice
    3) Mark actions as completed from list above
    4) Pin tasks to pebble timeline based on start date and time

    I mentioned saved search in particular because I use one particular saved search repeatedly as my 'tickler' file in GTD. If I can't view a saved search list but another list it would be OKAY for me, but I might not use the…

  12. Create a native windows 8/10 app

    UTL is by far the best task manager I've used on any platform. I don't know how difficult it would be to 'port' it to Windows, but it would open a whole new user base to it, and would allow those of us who use Android and Windows to work on both small and large screen devices. I'd happily pay again to get it on my laptop, especially as the Toodledo website is clunky to use and has limited offline support.

    With Windows 10 being a free upgrade, now would be a great time to be first to market on…

  13. Ability to bottom justify navigation pane

    When operating your phone with one hand, the fact that the navigation pane is top justified means that you need to stretch your thumb quite a bit to reach some of the options. It would be helpful to have the option to bottom justify the contents so that the menus are easier to reach.

  14. Sort tasks with a time before tasks with no time (ie NULL)

    For me if the task has a time (a Due time) then it is more important than those without
    If I sort by Due Date it puts those with no date first

    This is weird for me :)

  15. better use of screen space in edit view

    I frequently change the setting for opening the editor vs viewer when tapping on a task, because neither is really ideal and I can't quite decide which is the least worst option! What I really want to be able to do is to go straight to editing mode, but to be able to see all or most of the fields on my screen at a glance without scrolling. At the moment the editor makes very poor use of screen space; on my large screen I could easily fit the whole task with plenty of space for tapping accurately on fields.

  16. Ability: Create Subtasks from a Widget

    Widgets enhance workflow by being handy, intuitive and efficient. Switching focus to the main app turns productive "quick thought" task creation into distracting flow interruption. Subtasks are a great tool, but right now their creation (or designation) is tedious because the process is inconvenient. Please have "Make this a Subtask" appear in the options list when a new task is created via the widget " + " symbol, and when an existing task is edited by tapping it in a widget. This is not really a new feature, it is just a way of providing sensibly efficient access to an…

  17. Ability to set up default filter / sort order for folder

    I use folders to organize my tasks to projects. When I show tasks in a folder, I want to see completed tasks as well. But folder filter hides them, so I have to set it manually for every new folder. It would be great to be able to set something like "default folder filter". And there could be similar option for sort order there.

  18. Filter by tags that 'Begins with...'

    At the moment I must specify exactly every tag that I want to include in the filter. In Toodledo, I only have to indicate the initial characters, so I can have a large number of tags with the same prefix. Could I do this in Ultimate ToDo as well.

    Eg. If I had tags: 's_fred', 's_sue', 's_tony', I could set a filter for:
    Tag <begins with> 's_'

    Then I can add new tags to my tasks ('s_joe', 's_amir' etc) without having to remember to update all of the filters I might have.

    Toodledo also does <contains>, and <ends with>, <is>,…

  20. add an option to sort tasks by folders according to Toodledo order

    In Toodledo folders can be ordered manually or alphabetically. The same order is shown in Ultimate To-Do List when looking at the Folder 'directory'. When sorting tasks by folder the current options are to sort A-Z or Z-A. Having the additional option to sort by folders according to Toodledo's order would allow to use the folder order as prioritisation when using folders for projects.
