Can't sync Notes added to task, anyone else have same problem?

elfod says:

Am testing the Android app on my G1 and have noticed that notes added to tasks are not syncing with the website - anyone else see the same behavior?

Notes should definitely synchronize with the website. Does this happen only with notes that you're adding on the website? And does it help if you manually Refresh in RTM on the Android?

Also, does it happen with a completely new task?

I have just tested creating a new task on both website and G1 with a note on both and it's now working both ways. In addition the previous notes that didn't sync (created on G1) have now synced. Also tested modding eachothers notes and the changes synced too.

Odd, perhaps it was the last client update that fixed whatever issue I was seeing. Regardless, thanks for the response and I'll go ahead and buy Pro now :)

I have a HTC Hero and there is an intermittant problem when editing a note on the mobile it doesn't update the website.

Tried a new task and added a note and it appeared on web, then I edited the note and it also updated on web. Thought it was a blip bu edited another note on the mobile and refreshed web but it wasn't updated - Remember The Milk can you help?

warren.frost, when it doesn't synchronize, is the length of the note changing?

wizard710, when viewing a task, Menu | Add note.

I am still having this problem on an HTC hero. The task would have originally been created on the website but I added a note from the mobile because I did not have access to a PC at the time. Several days later I was surprised to find the note did not appear on the web site so today I tried:

1. Forcing an immediate sync, i.e. Menu/Refresh.
2. Changing the task title and then an immediate sync - titles changes on web site but note still not synced.
3. Pasting the text from the note into another application, deleting the note, adding the note again and pasting the text back in, again followed by an immediate sync.

None of these things have caused the note to appear on the web site and there is no error message displayed when I do the sync.

I have just tried splitting the note into two halves and after that both notes appeared on the web site so I wonder if this is a limit on the size of the note. The original would have been about 572 characters and then, when split into two parts 247 and 325 characters.
