Good task mgr. Needs smart lists/perspectives

Previously gave The Hit List 3 stars due to the repeat functionality not including the ability to repeat on specific days of the week (every Tuesday and Thursday for example). After digging into the app a little more I discovered that it does have the ability to repeat on specific days of the week which is great. As such I have increased my review to 4 stars. I would still like to see the developer add a smart list/perspective feature. Currently the only smart lists available are Today and Upcoming. I would like to have a smart list that includes all of my high priority work tasks due in the next 7 days, or a smart list for all tasks with certain tag that are past due or due today, etc. You can add tags/contexts but you can't create a list or folder that includes tasks with a certain tag, that's due in x number of days, and is high priority. There are other apps out there that do include this.

LOVE the Mac OS app, but iOS is buggy

The Hit List is a great app over all and when it works, it’s seamless, powerful and gives me exactly what I want. However, I find the iOS version to be very buggy. Lately, every time I open it it crashes immediately despite the fact that I have a fairly new iPhone and the latest iOS update. I’ve tried reinstalling but, as of now, it doesn’t work at all.

Can't export data

The app appears to be one of the better task management apps.

My low rating is because there is no way to export your data - you can't email a list, share a task, or extract all of the data to a csv list. I can't use an app that I can't get my data out of.
