■ Why ToDo for Google?
The browser version of Google Tasks is a great application.
However, because it is provided as a sidebar to Gmail and other applications, the screen is too small and not always easy to use.
ToDo for Google is an application that pursues the idea that Google Tasks should be more like this.
We want everyone who uses this application to be happy with it, and we are second to none.
That is the promise from ToDo for Google.
・Fixed the problem when offline.
Added the display that is not connected to the Internet.
Disabled the task addition and the sign-in button.
Ratings and Reviews
Replicates Tasks to my desktop simply
A slight visual change from the web version (not a good or bad thing).
Nice and simple to use.
Will get a 5* rating when Dark/Light mode can be in sync with system settings.
Developer Response ,
[Update] Added the ability to select between dark mode and light mode. The system also supports automatic switching, such as light mode in the morning and dark mode at night.
We hope you will give it a try. Thank you very much for your continued support.
Thank you for the review.
I was not aware of adding dark/light mode to the system settings and adding it, but I found that it can be provided, so I will add it in a future update.
Thanks for pointing out!
the best google tasks app for mac
Super simple, clean design and fast. It doesn't replicate 100% of google task's functions, but does the core tasks very well. It is getting rapidly updated and improves month by month. As google wont make an offical app, the modest price for this software is well worth it.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your advice.
As you said, I think we need to improve the details such as deleting alerts and subtasks.
There is no warning dialog for deleting tasks, so I'd like to fix it promptly. We apologize for the inconvenience.
I would like to work on displaying subtasks below the main task in the future.
We will continue to improve the app to make it easier to use.
Thank you for your continued support.
Looks good so far
Have only just started using it, but am impressed with how few permissions it asks for (reassuring when giving out Google authentication). Really nice UI too. Would love recurring tasks and a Mac Widget though to really complete the package.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your review. Security is of the utmost importance to us, so we have limited the permissions to only what is necessary for the app, and the UI has been designed to be simple and easy to understand.
We have asked Google to provide us with the API and we will update the app as soon as the API is available.
Thank you very much for your continued support.
