Known Issues in Todo 7 and Todo Cloud 7

Update (Friday, October 4, 2013): The Todo & Todo Cloud 7.0.1 updates are approved and available on the App Store.

Download Todo 7.0.1

Download Todo Cloud 7.0.1

Check out our blog to see everything that will be included:


If you find something you didn't expect, please let us know here. We're preparing a quick update release and want to make sure the app works well for you.

Issue: There is no way to get back to the original default wallpaper that shipped with the app for the background of the lists screen.
Workaround: Here's a link to the original photo used for the default wallpaper: Todo Default Wallpaper Photo. Download this photo to your iOS device by tapping on the photo link, then, when the image loads, tap and hold until you see the option to "Save Image". It will save to your iOS camera roll and you'll then be able to choose this as the Todo app wallpaper.
Status: If this is a common enough problem, we can add a "Default" option. Please leave your feedback if this is important to you.

The following previous issues were fixed in the 7.0.1 update:

  1. After upgrading your device to iOS 7 and installing an upgraded version of Todo, your device may not have automatically synchronized (app now prompts for sync password)
  2. Last-viewed list was not being opened if you terminated the app and re-launched it
  3. Todo 7 would erroneously prompt to connect with Todo Cloud when using the quick menu (tap and holding a task) to move a subtask from one project to another
  4. The delete option was missing from the quick menu (tap and holding a task). It's there now and available during multi-edit mode so you can delete many tasks all at once.
  5. Using member, context, and tag filters were a bit inconvenient because the toolbar would not stay opened after filtering and switching to a different screen. The toolbar is now "sticky" and will remain in the state you leave it.
  6. The app could crash if you prevented access to Contacts. This is fixed.
  7. Could not enter a phone number directly without tying it to a contact with the "Add task action..." You can now add a phone number without also adding a contact.
  8. For a detailed list of fixes in v7.0.1, check our blog post:

Michael, I'm not sure why this was changed (it seems backwards to me), but the latest update changed the way you access checklist and project tasks. Quoting from the blog post (referenced above):

CHANGED method of navigating into a project/checklist (tap on the row to view subtasks, tap on count to edit details)

A feature I am missing in ToDo 7 is the option to export a todo item to the Notebook.  This was very handy when I realized that a todo had accumulated enough notes or information that I just wanted it over in the Notebook app (and in the Notes section of ToodleDo).

Is this function still available and I just don't know where to access it?  If not, could it be reinstated into ToDo 7?

When you click to delete an action (contact/phone #/location/URL) from a task and then change your mind and click "Cancel"....the action still gets deleted.  This is bad. 

John, iOS 7 changed the way that inter-app communication works and we are in the process of fixing it up. Right now, we are looking at re-introducing that capability (exporting a task to Notebook) as part of the v7.0.3 update.

Was this on an iOS device or using Todo Cloud Web on your computer's web browser?


iPhone running ios7

Location services (geomapping) only works for me when the app is open in the background. It should work when the app is closed as well. This was an issue for other apps in the past, like find my friends, a year ago, and was corrected shortly thereafter with a new release. If this app, To Do Cloud, is having the same issue, it should be something that's easily fixable. Please advise. Also, I have activated To Do Cloud to be in my notifications and on the lock screen, but it is not appearing in either. Please advise.
Hi The new release had created a major problem. I cannot access the sub tasks of checklists and project. It only displays the project title. As you can imagine this is major chaos for me. I need a fix today! Important projects and no data. Mike

In the iPad and iPhone versions I cannot change the task type. If I created a simple task and want to convert it to a Checklist I cannot do it and before I could change the type of task in all versions.

Yes, repeat alerts

I just added todo cloud 7 to phone, ipad @ imac. Setup syncing and siri no prob. Also purchased 1.99 mo. via in app purchase. Have had all types but this may finally be what i have been hoping for. Any reason to purchase todo 7. (4.99) looks to be syncing mostly which is working fine. Am i missing anything major? Thanks folks!
Lonnie, now that you have the Todo Cloud premium subscription, there's no reason to buy the Todo 7 app. You've already got everything you need. This is the main benefit of having the subscription--all the client apps are free downloads. :)
I am in the process of returning to the new ToDo from Omnifocus after about 1.5 years. While I am trying to set up checklists that recur, I hit enter on the task... now I cannot find out how to set up Repeat after the task has been created. It's not in the Quick Menu deal.
Clinton, we've fixed the selection of the current due date problem and it will be releasing in the v7.0.2 update, which we hope is approved soon. Thanks for asking!
