User interface bordering on incomprehensible

The whole point of Taskpaper plain-text format is its simplicity. The user interface for this app is anything but simple; it’s mind-boggling. The gestures and keyboard shortcuts make no sense at all. Cmd-K to edit an existing task, seriously? Why not Enter (it’s not being used for anything else). Highlighting multiple tasks with the keyboard is totally confusing, and every time I try to add a due date my swiping, I end up changing the indent of the task in question. The UI needs a complete re-think.

Developer Response ,

Would you like to be a beta tester? I can not produce issue related to gesture. But it would be helpful in keyboard shortcuts implementation for return key to bring editing mode. I do not have an iOS device and return key does not work on simulator as t collide it wit some default shortcut of simulator. you can email me taskmator@gmail.com

TaskPaper, but better

Taskmator is TaskPaper but better: if you like the whole plain-text-productivity thing, and you want to do it on iOS, you want this app. It works better than TaskPaper ever did and has significant new features, such as automagic reminders for tasks.

It's not perfect -- which apps are? -- but it's good, and the maintainer is responsive to bug reports. There have been reviews accusing him of 'just picking up dead apps and reviving them' as if that's a bad thing: for people who rely on those apps it's not: it's a good thing. I wish he'd pick up FoldingText too!

I am really, really glad this app exists: if you used TaskPaper on iOS you will be as well.

Typing for slow snails

This is a great app when it works. It has sophisticated swiping options, though getting it to perform the one you want is a matter of pot luck. The real challenge is with adding new events. The app‘s typing function adds characters at the rate of about one every two seconds. You type ahead to some extent, but it is hard to predict how much it will remember, and then you are left waiting for when you will be able to type a few more characters. It seems unnecessarily frustrating.

UPDATE July 2022
I have tried reinstalling the app as suggested, indeed more than once, but no avail. In fact, recently the app has developed real problems with accessing Dropbox files, even files that the Dropbox app on my iPhone has no trouble accessing.
I would be happy to correspond with the developer about these problems, but he does not reply to emails.
It’s sad to see once decent app decline so.

Delete Taskmator and then reinstall the app. Also reboot your ios device before reinstallation. If it still does not work please contact me taskmator@gmail.com
