    • Open .tsk file stored on iphone

      I keep my desktop task list in Dropbox, so it appears my iphone through the dropbox folder. But I cannot get it from there into the iphone ap.
      It would be very helpful if the iphone app could open that .tsk file in the iphone version. In addition, pressing the .tsk file in the dropbox app could then launch taskcoach and open the file. Any time the file changes, it could be automatically updated in taskcoach.
      This would allow easy syncing across all platforms.
      Keep up the good work!

      • Sync iPhone and iPad apps with each other

        Now you have to sync each with desktop. In alternative, sync iPhone and iPad to a remote syncml server - especially useful when you forget to sync with desktop
        Better than everything, sync desktop iPhone and iPad with dropbox

        • Add some full cloud sync system

          That would allow us to sync when not on the same network.
          Dropbox or OwnCloud or whatever service, if that could be feasible

          • Need Notes support

            I know this is hard, but task coach is really an awesome tool and the tasks as well as the notes go hand in hand for me.

            I know adding the notes feature is hard. Would there be anyway to couple taskcoach notes with the iPhone notes to make it easier. I basically want an easy way to pop back and forth between tasks and notes when I'm in meetings. The desktop app is just awesome for doing this.

              • Auto sync with iPhone

                Currently you have to manually initiate a sync with an iPhone (which many people forget to do). How about being able to set the app to sync periodically according to some parameters such as:
                - at specific times during the day.
                - every X hours.
                - desktop initiates sync b4 closing app.

                  • Increase font size for task descriptions.

                    The current font as displayed is hard to read on the tiny iPod screen.

                      • One-click Effort Tracking

                        I would like to have a button to track effort directly from the task list. Right now I have to click through 3 levels to start tracking a task effort. I would love to have a quicker and more stream-lined way to instantly track a task.

                          • Enable Iphone/Ipad/Ipod sync with memotoo like OSX version

                            If you have your windows pc on a corporate network, that isn't part of the same network as your Mac og Iphone, you can't sync. Why have a sync option on the Mac version, and not be able to sync the iphone the same way?

                                    within IOS you can see the effort times (date, start and end) but you can't see any effort descriptions. This would make the IOS a lot more useful

                                    • Option to not start new tasks in iOS

                                      I'd like to use Task Coach in a Kanban (or scrum) mode where entering a new task just adds it to a backlog, but does not start it.

                                      The preferences are there for not starting new tasks on the desktop, but this should also be added to the iPhone app.

                                      • Create an iOS URL scheme to integrate Task Coach

                                        Would it be possible to at implement a custom URL scheme? Some possible uses would be:
                                        1) taskcoach:// - simply open Task Coach to the home screen
                                        2) taskcoach://?cat=abc - open to tasks in category abc
                                        3) taskcoach://?sync - opens the Sync screen
                                        4) taskcoach://?addTask?subject=new_task&category=cat&......
                                        5) There are probably other potential locations - but these are the ones that come to mind right now

                                        I could then use a timer-based tool like Workflow or Launcher to automatically pop-up directly to the Sync screen in Task Coach - or use IFTTT (or some other tool) to take E-Mail messages or texts…

                                        • Option to not start new tasks on iOS

                                          I'd like to use Task Coach in a Kanban (or scrum) mode where entering a new task just adds it to a backlog, but does not start it.
