I continue to enjoy the app!

And I like the daily, weekly, and weekday reminders you added recently. Given that the app has different shades of gray (except for the microphone) perhaps a bit of color to make it stand out a bit more? I think the former Voice To-Do app with its aqua was quite nice.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that the app didn't meet your expectation.

We believe "Speak Task" is better in every aspect. Please allow me to list some key points:
- Features: It has all features of "Voice To-do" + additional features such as the past reminders screen. Also, more features to come in the future.
- Speech Recognition: It displays the text converted from your speech as you speak. You can always retry if mis-recognized.
- UI design: It has more sophisticated user interface which is less wasteful of available spaces on the screen.
- System design: "Voice To-do" is based on old system design/architecture and dependent on 3rd party software libraries that are no longer supported, thus it cannot be supported any more. "Speak Task" has much better design and minimal external dependencies, so it can be maintained and sustained for many years to come.

The last point was critical and that was the main reason why we had to recreate the app. I hope you understand.

It'd be greatly appreciated if you could provide specific points for improvements through the link within the app. We are committed to improve the app and provide the best user experience. Thank you very much.


Thank you for your understanding & giving me the opportunity to explain!

Good, but no upgrade path

I had been using the developers’ prior app, Voice ToDo and liked it. SpeakTask replaced it and it works even better, except for one large flaw: there is no way to import data from the old app to the new app. So, if you have large to-do lists in the old app, you’re stuck with either a) using the old app for them or b) recreating them in the new app. Just be aware that there is no data transfer when you upgrade.

Update: I’ve had to downgrade this app. This is the second time I’ve lost all my data. I use iCloud syncing and when the app was updated a few days ago everything was gone. While the concept of the app is nice, the implementation has too many flaws. It’s simply unusable if it will keep randomly erasing all my notes.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for your feedback and continuously using our apps! We are sorry for your trouble caused by the lack of task transfer feature. It would require some complicated data processing as the data structure of the two apps are completely different. We would look into it if there is pressing demand, but we need to prioritize other features for now. Again, we are sorry for the trouble and hope you will understand. Have a nice day!
(Update on Oct 16th) We have identified a potential problem that may be causing the issue and the fix will be included in the next version (1.3.10). Again, we sincerely apologize for all the troubles and thank you very much for reporting the issue.

Easy 5 star iOS productivity essential. Just still growing.

Was sippin that hateraid at first. But I’ll admit after getting the hang of everything and tweaking my settings I was really starting to lean on it. I’m not an app guru so my advice might have proper credentials. But it would be really nice to be able to select multiple tasks at once to batch share them to other apps and lists.

I know it’s probably been bounced around by the devs, but improving voice controls for making lists so that we avoid having to press confirm between tasks would be a game changer. I often make tasks on AirPods far away from phone.

Either of those changes will make me really consider adding that fifth star but both would be an instant update.

The last (and most difficult) thing that I would love to see is Apple Watch support and maybe shortcut integrations. This is truly the perfect Watch app and y’all could make a killing.

Developer Response ,

Thank you very much for your feedback and sharing your great ideas! Honestly, some of them haven't even cross our minds.

I personally love the option to end the speech recognition by voice control - perhaps user can register some keywords beforehand and when the app detects those words, it can automatically end listening. It'd only save a tap of the OK button, but I know it makes a difference.

Also, Apple Watch integration would be awesome! But unfortunately, Apple Watch's OS (WatchOS) does not support speech recognition at this point in time. We will add it to our wish list and definitely look into implementing it as soon as the feature becomes available at the OS level.

Again, thank you very much for your great feedback. Can't guarantee anything as to what & when we will work on, but your ideas have been added to our backlog. Have a nice day!


Our developer loved the voice control options and immediately worked on it. Ver. 1.2.6 has the feature, so please check it out! Thanks again for your feedback.
