Awesome work!

Is it possible to leave the clock and weather in the original size? Since it's only swype up to view more tasks/appointments and your list is scrollable, I think there would be no problem...

(Just to add, you could use this size of weather and clock in the up swype view of cookie's...)

Just a suggestion although, thanks very much!

Wonderful!

The first real progress in managing tasks within Sense.

Testing right now...

Is it possible or maybe planned to do some kind of "sorting" (or even "tabbing") based on categories?

Thank you again... I'm very glad to see someone really is working on this tasks issue on Sense.

Hm this doenst really go well with the GTX sense theme from ElCondor.
Homescreen clock is duplicated, one up side down, one normal. and the swiping doesnt work. And the sun from the weatherpanel still shows in the middle in stead of the right corner.
Gonna reinstall GTX sense xD
