The idea on this one would be to either create a task with a photo only and/or be able to attach a photo to a task. We'll need to figure out the specifics of what this would mean for synchronizing the photos around to your different devices, but we think it's an idea worth pursuing.
An example of using this in practice would be when you see something cool at a store that you want to later review as a birthday present later. You'd launch Todo, tap a photo button, and you could be reminded later.
Let us know how you'd like to use photos in conjunction with your tasks.
Reminder: If this proposed feature is important to you, make sure to "like" this article so your vote will count.
Any update from Appigo on whether this will happen anytime soon?
I'd really see the feature to add attachments incorporated with ToDo. Be it pictures, files, or emails. A friend is a big fan of Wunderlist - which I don't think is as nice as ToDo, and is lacking decent contexts/tags - but does have the ability to attach files.
I'm not holding out hope, since the last post to the thread was over a year ago.
Thanks... and I hope you add the feature
THIS THREAD has been going for several months now. Has anyone from Appigo weighed in on whether this will happen in one form or another? Please let us know! Thanks!
I had always wanted this feature to be in. It is particularly useful when you are out hunting for something or doing shopping. Capturing an image of a product saves time as there is no retyping required :)
This would be AMAZING for remembering presents, sending someone to the store to get exactly what you want, etc. Please please add this!
Patrick- Amen! and thank you for your extensive explanation that I wholeheartedly agree with. A picture can tell a thousand words. What I've been doing in the interim is having photos in Dropbox and copying the link and pasting it into ToDo and then tapping on the link it takes me back to DB...cumbersome,doable, but unnecessary considering that Appigo is savvy enough to come up with a more elegant solution of their own. I wish they were more transparent about what they were working on, even without giving any ETAs. Even Things has a Status page that at least shows you they're working on stuff. Oh well.
This would be I feel the last significant feature that would be needed for todo to take off like a rocket. I would recommend it to every person I know and guarantee 10-20% of people would sign up for the cloud service. What really holds others and myself from getting the most out of this app is the ability to quickly input the relevant information I need related to my to dos, projects, and even just "Stuff I want to have handy" (reference).
First todos (because this is a GTD app). I would say 50% of my activities in todo would be dramatically enhanced by pictures. A couple examples:
Now this is less "To do" like but totally GTD. If Todo had this function, it could serve as your backed up/synced/accessible anywhere in the world on any computer version of all of your critical documents - it could be your one source GTD digital reference repository.
I have pictures of my drivers license, passport, car and health insurance, registration, SS card and EVERY other important document you can imagine as well as pictures of receipts for significant purchases. That is all well an good that I now have a digital copy of my drivers license for example - but its now swimming in the ocean of my 10k other photos on my iPhone. Until its identifiable its like it isn't there. I have to take them off my phone, save them on a cloud shared service like dropbox with a title like "Driver's license". If I could snap a picture with todo, type a brief description of what it is, AND have it sync (ie backup) with a trusted service that I can access not just incredibly easily from my phone but from any computer in the world. Think about it - all of a sudden every important document/bank check/picture of something that has information in it I want to remember/receipt/business card/FACES (yes makes remembering names a snap)/anything you can take a picture of...is ALL at your fingertips, backed up, and accessible from anywhere in the world.
In paris and someone steals your passport and everything else from you? Problem solved.
Don't worry about carrying all those health insurance/car insurance/costco/airline club/etc cards around anymore - everyone accepts digital now.
I really really really want/need/would do anything for this feature to be a reality. I've taken the time to write this much because I want you to understand how profound this could be for your business and how important it is to me.
Please please please make this happen.
I know you don't typically announce release schedules, and I also know that this feature would require you to figure out cloud storage of photos which is far more complicated than text based todos....that said. Is this still in the works? Is it a priority? If not I'd be more than happy to take time to speak with any of your time to provide customer input. And lastly is it coming out soon?
I am a network engineer and frequently travel to remote sites to evaluate physical infrastructure for necessary corrections. Having photo attachments would be very helpful to me for this purpose. I would be able to attach a photo with a description of the work needed. Please implement this.
Great idea... please let us attach pictures to tasks... ASAP
