Pending updates

26 August 2014 App News

I’ve been working on an update to Renamed Todo and made some good progress over this last weekend. Mostly minor stuff, a few cosmetic changes, a few UI tweaks, and a small bug fix which I’m attempting to squash now. I’m also doing some work under the hood to prepare for a much bigger update to follow.

On a related note I’ve decided to pull Todo.txt Enyo from the HP app catalog (webOS for those who may not know). I haven’t worked on it in some time and it doesn’t have the same features as Renamed Todo for BlackBerry 10. The source code it still available however on github and I’ll make packages directly available but it isn’t being activily developed. I am considering doing a new port of Renamed Todo and will consider webOS if there is still some usage of it. Stay tuned…

Because naming an app is hard – Renamed Todo 0.5

So I’ve gone and renamed my todo app formerly known as Task Slayer.  I honestly wasn’t that fond of the previous name to begin with so when asked to change it to avoid confusion with another app by the same name I gladly did so.  I didn’t realize how much of a pain it is though so I don’t plan on doing this again.  That being said this release is much more than just a fancy new name.  This release includes sharing support, an active frame, and support for those fancy new Q10 devices people are clamoring for.

New Features

  • Application name change to Renamed Todo
  • Q10 Support
  • Sharing (invocation) support
  • BBM support
  • Active frame
  • Bug fixes related to filters

Todo.txt Enyo 0.4.1 update for webOS

13 April 2013 App News

Long live webOS!  I’ve decided to release a minor update to address some webOS specific requests.  First up has to do with scaling properly on a Pre 3 device.  Since I don’t have an actual Pre 3 device I have to rely on the simulator which doesn’t truly show how small or large the text actually looks.  Hopefully this will help those die hard users from having to strain their eyes.  The other change allows those who maintain their todo.txt on the local device to change where it’s stored internally.  This should be particularly useful for those who dual boot their TouchPad with Android and like to keep edit the file in either OS.

What’s New

  • Adjust for Pre3 screen resolution
  • Allow edit of internal file location on WebOS


  • Direct download available here.
  • Source available on GitHub.


Task Slayer 0.4.1 available

16 February 2013 App News

My latest update to Task Slayer is now available for sale in BlackBerry World for the BlackBerry Z10.  There are a number of bug fixes included in this release to make it fast and stable now that BB10 has been officially released.  Even though it’s not labeled as v1.0 it’s ready for every day use.  My next release will focus on tighter BB10 integration, Q10 support, and perhaps a few extra features along the way.

What’s New

  • Archive completed tasks (done.txt)
  • Bug fix: automatic focus on text fields
  • Bug fix: refresh following Dropbox authentication
  • Bug fix: scrolling on settings page



Task Slayer for BB10 update

13 December 2012 App News

This is a relatively minor update to Task Slayer.  The only notable feature was really just adding a quick search box and a little bit of UI tweaking.  Those with DevAlpha devices can download it from BlackBerry World.  Along with refreshed screenshots I’ll attempt to post a video with my next release to give a taste to those who might be eagerly awaiting the launch of BlackBerry 10 at the end of January or curious to see how this app works compared to it’s counter parts.

What’s New

  • Search
  • Updated splash screen and app icon
  • Bug fix: wrong default location for todo.txt on Dropbox



Todo.txt Enyo 0.4.0

13 December 2012 App News

The fourth release of Todo.txt Enyo is now available for both WebOS and BlackBerry PlayBook.  Even though there was only one new feature added I think it’s a good one.  This release took a little while to get approved in BlackBerry App World.  I suspect the folks in Waterloo are getting a lot more app submissions these days.

What’s New

  • Archive support (done.txt)


Task Slayer for BlackBerry 10

13 October 2012 App News

My first BlackBerry 10 app Task Slayer is now available in the BlackBerry AppWorld.  Like my previous apps Task Slayer is a task manager based on the todo.txt file format.  This initial release covers the basics for managing tasks on the local device and has focused on making for a usable user interface.  It’s been tested and functional in the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Simulator.  I’m looking for those who have Dev Alpha devices to help test and provide feedback.  I plan to have Dropbox syncing in my next release and have the basic framework in place to easily add more cloud services.  Click or scan the barcode link to download and give it a try.

Beta 2 for Todo.txt Enyo

18 March 2012 App News

The second beta of Todo.txt Enyo has been uploaded to the HP App Catalog beta channel and is available now.  There have been some various bug fixes, minor UI modifications, and initial support for the BlackBerry Playbook.  Check out the Apps page for how to get it.

What’s New

  • Initial BlackBerry PlayBook support.
  • Insert for project, context, and priority on add or edit.

Known Issues

  • Edit field on the PlayBook does not wrap cleanly because of a hack to work around problems with the RichText control outside of webOS.
  • Scrolling is not as smooth on the PlayBook.
