I just uploaded the latest binaries (JAR and JAD) of Mobile Task Manager to Google Code download page. The previous version (v1.2) was already downloaded over 1700 times in less then a month so there seems to be a need for a good GTD / Task Manager application :)
This version fixes the issues with the export and import. Now you can export data to CSV file correctly and you can import that file either to root folder or to the folder that is currently selected.
This version also improves the startup time significantly. Application is ready to use in about three seconds after the launch on my Nokia E71.
Have fun while Getting Things Done with the Mobile Task Manager! :)
When I crafted the Mobile Task Manager application this summer I didn’t expect it to have that good response in community. It was even mentioned in many blogs like Nokia Mobile Talk and even reviewed on one of my favorite Symbian sites, all about symbian.com, by Ewan Spence. Ewan pointed out good ideas how application could be improved to be even better GTD application for mobile phones.
Last week I miraculously had few spare hours here and there and I was able to improve this app a little based on feedback written on the application page and based on Ewan’s review. Today I’m able to release the version 1.2 of the Mobile Task Manager with the following new features:
You can prioritize todo items (none, low, normal, high)
Priority shown as flags (none, green, yellow, red)
Priority can be changed from item view (left/right key)
…or straight from item list with ’0′ shortcut key
You can sort items by name, done-status or priority
Import items from text file or CSV file
FIX: pressing ’3′ causes the item below the one highlighted to open up for editing
FIX: “Delete selected” will not delete the last entry on a folder
FIX: pressing ’9′ does not work for quick note editing
Unfortunately I had to rename the JAR file in this release as it previously contained the version number so you can’t update your existing instance. From now on I’m keeping the same name (MobileGtd.jar) so future releases are going to update the existing installation. You can download the binaries (JAR/JAD files) from here.
Mobile Task Manager is still open source so if you like to check out the code you can do so in here.
