Default [APP] HTC Tasks

HTC Tasks - an application using the Sense SDK to manage your Outlook tasks
I always wondered why my HD2 did not come with a replacment app for the stock tasks application, especially since Sense replaces almost everything. Anyway, I downloaded eboelzner's Sense SDK and startet writing this little app today.

Requirements:
  • Windows Phone 6.x
  • .netCF 3.5
  • (W|Q)VGA device
Current features (very basic):
  • Add Task
  • Localization (English, German, Spanish; auto-detect language)
  • Sense UI
  • change task status
  • change importance
  • change subject
Future Features:
  • Settings
  • Change other task properties (description, due date, etc.)
  • maybe other languages
  • images showing importance
Localization:
Oh and I would be glad if someone could take a look at my Spanish localization and tell me if something's wrong (my grammar is miserable and I'm not familiar with the Spanish techno-babble) and maybe somebody wants to translate this into other languages as well. So please contact me via PM if you are interested in helping me.

In my opinion pTasks is not very fingerfriedly, which is pretty important if you have a device with capacitive touchscreen.

HTC Task sounds great. I use the WinMo-Task every day... it works very good but its so ugly.

A question: Do you want the important tasks to be colored?

I encountered a really strange bug. When I change the tasks StartDate and Update the task (Task.Update()) I get a Win32 Exception. Has any other .NET CF developer an idea what could be causing this?

edit: found out what the problem was. StartDate has (logically) be before DateCompleted.
