    Maybe it would be cool to have a line beneath each task's name containing the beginning of its description - what do you please think?

    Thank you

    *The time format is to large and it takes a good protion of the description field. Can it be short dated?

    *delete, delete, delete lol

    The icon is perfect. It's clean and I wouldn't mind putting it in my top 5. Great job. Can't wait to see the finished product. Ill be recommending this one!

    Smile Re: MagicTask - new BB software in development!

    First off thanks for your development of this app. I live by tasks and after converting over from windows mobile have had to carry as second WM device because the task app in my pearl is so weak. I have really missed having an app like this. All of the other task apps I have reviewed (all of them I think) have either been far too elaborate requiring an adoption of their task religion or not based on the internal task list synchronized from Outlook - why I have no idea.

    You seem to be making good progress, but is this supposed to work on the Pearl 8100? Perhaps not because as soon as it loads it looks good, but engaging the filter drop down causes it to slow down to a crawl to the point it appears to be locked. A few minutes later it comes back. Also if I avoid using the filter drop down and explore the app it appears to have only 1 menu option being to close. Selecting a task brings up the <Full Menu> prompt, which then reveals the <close> prompt. Any suggestions.

    Thanks,
    - Paul.

    Hi there,

    thank you for your feedback!

    Pearl is definitely supported. Please let us know - how many tasks do you have currently stored on your BB? - this might have impact on performance

    Thank you so much for letting us know!

    I see - this makes sense. If quantity of tasks is a challenge then that may very well be the issue. Currently I have 255 tasks, and this is after recently archiving over 200 complete tasks. If the software can't handle this many tasks this would be a problem for me as this is a typical amount.

    The irony is that all I'm really most interested in seeing is today's tasks. If someone can tell me how to filter only today's tasks onto the device via wireless sync I would be very happy with that.

    I will try a test soon of limiting the number of tasks and see how that affects the issues Ive seen. Gotta go for now.

    Thanks again for your efforts.

    Cheers,
    - Paul.

    I've also just noticed that the date formatting is YEAR-MM-DD. It appears above that this had been changed to just MM-DD. Is there a chance I am working with an older version? Excuse my BB ignorance but how do I check the version number? Thanks, Paul.

    Re: MagicTask - new BB software in development!

    Hi can we have subject sort? My tasks are sorted by numeric at the beginining of the task title and then underscores eg

    1 go to shops
    2 Take kids to soccer
    3 _Pay bills
    3 Record TV

    So if something becomes more important say, pay bills, then I just play with the number and the underscores before the task

    1 _Pay bills
    1 go to shops
    2 Take kids to soccer
    3 Record TV

    It works for me but at the moment your sorting is alphabetic first then numeric descending so all my important task are at the end of the list.

    The perfect solution however would be if you could do task drag and drop ala pocket day list and stop there without messing around anymore I would buy it just as it is.... but not to expensive please.

    Categories sort on the header screen - Brilliant! About time someone did it!

    Paul,
    to get the version number, go to Options->Advanced Options->Modules.

    Thank you for your previous message, we really appreciate it!

    Link2 Team
    Let me add my two cents, and say that this program is moving along very nicely.

    On my Pearl, it displays part of the discription of the to do, then the date, then there is a large amount of unused space on the line. Not sure why this is... could be the font my bb is using?

    It will display "Get anniv. gift for" Wed. 10/10 ..............................

    with the ------------- the blank space remaining on my display! About 25% of the line on the right side is unused.

    Thanks!

    One more thought. Perhaps use an exclamation mark to the left of overdue items, and items which are high priority remain in red? Perhaps another icon on the left of to do discripton, to show it's a recurring to do?
