Right now I'm hating it: something is wrong with the installation process It is not creating its folder in Dropbox/Apps. EDIT: It's working now; I reinstalled Dropbox on my (Linux) PC (tho I'm not sure how this would affect the install process on the mobile app), and I can create & edit tasks. SOME ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I really need to be able to continue using the todo.txt command-line scripts to work with the file when on the PC; this can be accomplished by editing the todo.cfg file accompanying those scripts. However, the spaces in the Simpletask directory name on Dropbox cause problems when doing this, and I needed to create a symbolic link without spaces in the name in the Dropbox Apps directory to make it work. I have read that links can cause issues with Dropbox, and I am seeing a very slow sync back to the Simpletask app when editing on the PC with the CLI scripts. I suggest the Simpletask directory name be one without spaces.
Great job keeping this updated. Nice simple todo solution. I was happy to donate/pay a few dollars for such a useful tool.

Used this for almost a year now. My go to mobile version of todo.txt (just use Sublime editor on desktop). Recurring syntax & Lua script implementation are perfect. Recent update altered alpha sort to letters only (numbers at start of line no longer sort numerically or above letters), which is disappointing and seems an odd regression. For plain text organizers, this & SimpleTask Cloudless are the the best out there.
He nailed it! I've tried lots of todo list apps, and this is clearly just the right one for me. Has all the important features plus far more flexibility than any other that I have seen. And it is very fast too.
I've been using this for years. Because of the super simple integration with Dropbox, and the ability to use the cli on my desktop, this makes Simpletask one of the most flexible tools available.
- Updated Dropbox library and improved logout/login behavior.
A powerful to-do task management tool with a simple customizable user interface.
