Looks good in default mode, but local file syncing appears to be useless. I wanted a to-do text file that could be shared between Android and Windows, by just copying the file. But when I tried to sync the app with a file I copied to /ToDo/ToDo.txt, it's just stuck in a Select Files in Local Storage screen. My ToDo.txt file is selected, but I can't do anything with it. The Continue button is disabled. If I go back after selecting the file, the app exits.

Edit2: This app nuked my ToDo.txt file! Good thing I had a backup. It deleted special characters and white space formatting as if it was HTML.------ Edit1: Once logged in, the local file setup was easy. This app has an intuitive user interface. ------- Developer claims ability to use local file, but I couldn't even launch the app without logging in. It makes me wonder what the developer is doing with my personal data.

The app can't sync over Dropbox when connected to my personal VPN, making it unusable. I have no issues browsing the internet or with any other apps, this is the first one that works when I switch it off then stops working when I switch it on. Unfortunately, now I have to use the much less nicely designed Simpletask, since it actually works.
