I understand that auto-synchronizing might be difficult based on the usage of Bonjour and concerns about properly finding the last synchronized Task Coach data file.
Would it be possible to at least implement a custom URL scheme - such as taskcoach://sync - that opens the Sync screen? I could then use a timer-based tool like Workflow or Launcher to automatically pop-up directly to the Sync screen in Task Coach.
Unfortunately, I don't have a Mac so I can't modify or suggest source code. I do know that the Apple Developers page at https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/iPhone/Conceptual/iPhoneOSProgrammingGuide/Inter-AppCommunication/Inter-AppCommunication.html has details on "Registering Custom URL Schemes"
Would it be possible to simply allow a user-specified DNS name or IP address in the iOS client? This would work, for example, if you left TaskCoach running on an Internet facing machine (or on a private network with a VPN on the iOS device) and you wanted to synchronize to your main task file. Unfortunately, Bonjour does not seem to work easily on VPNs (since iOS does not support the tap driver) so specifying a DNS name might easily solve this problem. The only real catch would be that TaskCoach doesn't always use port 4096, so you would need a way to discover the right port number on each invocation of TaskCoach.
