Date & Time - iTodo

Description: iTodo is a quick and easy way to keep track of what you need to do. It doesn't sync with iCal or anything, so it is just for quickly jotting down something you need to do. iTodo features a very small and dashboard-like UI that will make you want to keep it on your dashboard. Hopefully the next version will let you minimize the window so that only the header is viewable.

You can keep track of which items or done or not via the little "checkbox" to the left of each todo item. Click the plus on the topbar to add an item. Click the edit button on the right of each item, or just click on the todo item text to edit that item. Click the done icon or just click anywhere else to save your changes. Click the x icon to the right of each todo item to delete it forever.

Version: 1.2
New in v1.2: - Fixed problem where "n" makes a new todo item. Now the + (+=) button to the right of "9" "0" and "_-" makes a new todo item.

Nicely enough done, and more convienent than opening iCal. However, highly appreciated would be an option to change the header text (as to title specific Todo lists) or the ability to set colored categories. Preferrably the latter, I think, since it would be easier to do with the auto-saving setup you already have than saving the states of multiple lists.

So you mean that the user should be able to choose wether the color is black etc...?

About the header text: I can add that option, but why would you want it? You can't really have different "calendars" like in ical since all the todo items are stored in the same file... however, I could implement multiple calendars, with choose-able names and colors. Then each widget that was out would have a select box to choose between the different calendars. What do you think of this?

I have been looking for something like this for a while, so thanks a lot. Some suggestions: I think that Return (or perhaps only Enter) should save a todo item, rather than adding a line to the item being edited. This would be easier, as one would not have to resort to the mouse to save a todo item, but it also makes sense because multi-line items do not work anyways--the black bar does not expand to fit the text, and the text just overlaps with the next todo item (you ought to fix this problem as well). It might be nice if there were a keystroke to add a new item as well. Also, you might consider making the whole thing a little bit larger, though I know you wanted the small size so it would fit well on the dashboard. Nice work overall, just needs a few fix-ups.

The problem with the new line has to do with that I had to use a textarea for the widget (as a result of apple not letting anyone style their forms). I shall look into possible fixes for this problem. The enter is definitely a good idea and I'll try to implement it in future versions.

hmm the previous version had no problems but this version does smiley

(the "N" button isn't a good idea (now you can't began with the letter N )

That's a strange problem. I'll look into fixing it ASAP.

Problem fixed.

I love the how it's so compact! However, it does look a little bland. Maybe a sleeker look, different colors, metal, wood, plastic. Something to spruce it up.

Brilliant! I been waiting for someone to do this - THANK YOU!!!
It would be nice to be able to change the text size and background colour.

Another annoying thing is that I have to select the text before typing... Would be nice if the text is highlighted so I can just type (hope that made sense)

There is a bug that makes the widget overwrite todos if you have deleted an earlier todo. (When adding a new todo, the code only looks for the total amount of todos, not the specific numbers.)

In addition, the version number in info.plist is still 1.0, regardless if I download from your webpage or from here.

I like the simplicity of it. But perhaps you could change the font of the list? It looks kinda bland...would love the list to look a little more spiced up smiley Thanks in any case. Great job!
