Last week I submitted an update to TaskTask to version 3.2. This new update includes several new features requested by you, my customers! This update, when approved by Apple, will provide the ability to move tasks between folders, search your tasks significantly faster (full text index), and features a redesigned view settings to make it easier to find all of the options to customize your view.
This update also adds experimental support for syncing with Google Tasks. This provides very basic task list management to everyone with a Google account. The support is experimental because Google hasn’t finalized their Tasks API, so it’s possible in the future the feature could break. Google Tasks are also significantly more limited than Outlook, so the set of functionality available with Google Tasks is significantly less than what TaskTask offers with Exchange. I’m looking forward to hearing feedback from anyone who tries out the Google Tasks mode.
Moving beyond this update, I feel that the majority of TaskTask functionality is complete for iOS devices. With the release of the built-in Reminders application from Apple with iOS 5, sales of TaskTask for iOS devices have fallen considerably. While I will continue to support TaskTask for iOS for the foreseeable future, my focus will be shifting to working on TaskTask for other platforms, such as Windows Phone 7 and Android. I’ve had a version of TaskTask for Windows Phone 7 in progress for quite some time, and will be working on finishing it up so that I can deliver these features to Windows Phone customers. After that release, I’ll start the investigation on porting TaskTask to Android.
This means the update rate for TaskTask for iOS will likely decrease over the next few months. I will continue to monitor e-mail and forum traffic to see if there are any significant requests from customers around TaskTask functionality or issues that need to be resolved. I appreciate the continued support from all of my loyal customers and I look forward to delivering the TaskTask experience on all mobile devices in the future.
