Ah! Nice to see this mentioned here, I have been using it for a long while as well! Regarding the recent UI changes, the only minor issue I have is the sync animation is very close in colour to the colour of the top bar of the app, so sometimes its really hard to see when its syncing - particularly outside in sunshine.

One other question that I have been meaning to ask almost as long as I have been using it is: does it only sync if you have the app open, or the widget running ?

Although I have it set up to Auto Sync, I don't use the widget as I have the tasks displayed in the Android Agenda Widget along with all my calendar entries. I find I then have to manually sync via the app to update the agenda widget after any changes via Google Calendar, if you see what I mean!

- apps layout (colors) is hardcoded in layout folder, which is not accessible through t-mo theme engine.

Could you redirect the colors, like you did with the widgets to drawable.xmls, so one could theme it too

Thanks
Will check that out

In any case, the app is great, and I sent links to it to people I know with android phones a week or so ago when I discovered it. I wish more apps would do data/account syncing correctly like this one does - I hate the apps that just send you to a webpage or make you enter a name and password.

Sorry, I'm not very clear about the stipulation...
And thank you for your recommendation We will keep moving on, try to make it better.

The sync animation is the default of android progress bar, it might be hard to see clearly in some custom roms.
By now, auto sync means the app will sync when something changed locally, add/delete/edit a task or tasklist. The widget will not update if you changed via web or some other way out of GTasks, for the app won't pull data from server automatically. We will consider that.

This is just the standard 2.3.3 release Samsung just sent out for the SGS. The sync animation looks to be black, or dark grey at least. It was the same on 2.2 on the SGS as as well. Its no problem, I just thought I'd mention it

Ah! Ok, thanks for the explanation! Having it pull from the server would be awesome, so thank you for considering it

Thumbs up Very good app
Very good app. I use everyday and I have 6 widgets in my workspace.

I have only one suggestion: create more widgets with bigger size, we have 4x1 and 4x2. And sometimes I have some lists with hundreds of items.

Thanks!

I just added some tasks to my Google tasks using my pc browser and noticed there is no way to add a due date with a specific time. Is there any way you can incorporate this into your app or no because it isn't native to Google tasks?

TIA

I've been using this app/widget for a while, coming from Astrid.
I must say it's here to stay!
Plus, the developer reads and answer your emails! Amazing!
