4x4 widget

ctheiss says:
Would it be possible to add a 4x4 widget (or even better, ?x?) to the Android application? I have an HTC Hero, and would like to dedicate one of the home screens to my RTM list.

Thanks!

4x3 or 3x4 would be nice too, because I like to put a "Calender" icon below my widget...

Hmmm any chance an RTM employee can comment? This is pretty much the only thing between the current app and todo list perfection, for me :)

+1 for 4x4 widget as well. Also like the idea of the 4x3 widget to allow space for a calendar icon.

I don't mean to be greedy, but how about all of them? I can't imagine it involves that much work and it'd go a long way toward making sure that paying customers are satisfied with their options. I'm considering becoming a paying customer - trying out the widget right now for 15 days - and I really wish there were 4x2 and 4x1 options.

I think that if they are going to make widget that is full screen or almost full screen, then it should do more than just display tasks. It could allow you too mark them completed

While waiting for it, you guys may try Pure Calendar widget that supports ALL sizes and can display both Calendar and Astrid data. Syncing with Astrid allows to show the data from RtM synced into the calendar data of that widget.

@apoapostolov: Pure calendar is a great widget, perfect for RTM but I don't use Astrid because of its cumbersome task entry. Would be great, if the developer would support the native RTM app.

guys, just dl ADW launcher and set the RTM widget to 4x4.

I still think the RTM widget should be more configurable, but...

If you use Launcher Pro as a homescreen replacement, you can resize the 2x2 widget into a 3x2 or 4x2.

You can also resize the 3x3 into a 4x3, but the font is bigger so it's not as useful.

I stopped using the 2x3 and 3x3 widget because of the fact that I didn't find myself using them.
There needs to be a transparent AND white RTM 4x4 widget that efficiently displays many tasks and provides lots of options.

erinjeffreys says:
I would like a 4x1 and a 4x2 widget. RTM --> Astrid --> Calendar Pro is very resource intensive (3-way sync!) and not a good workaround.
Posted 5 years ago
les.harrison says:
+1 What I want is a 4x4 transparent widget like the calendar widget on my Incredible. I'll open the app if I need to modify tasks, I just want to take a quick look at what comes next with a swipe of the finger.

Launcher pro allows you to stretch the RTM widget to whatever size you like. And as RTM Widget is Top Left aligned works perfectly.

pinkcoder says:
I too am looking for this sort of feature. If it's too cumbersome to have a stand-alone RTM widget for Android, then it would be nice if RTM would open up integration with some of these other Android calendars -- like Pure Calendar or Agenda Widget. Basically, I want to be able to see my tasks and scheduled events for today and the next couple of days all easily lined up on the home screen. Then, if need to update/complete/postpone, click to enter the real RTM application.

I just wanted to post and say that we definitely appreciate the feedback (and this request has been heard :).

We're hoping that we'll be able to give the Android app some more love soon. We're a small team, so unfortunately we've been tied up with iPad app development (which I know is only of interest if you happen to own an iPad!). That app will be out of the way shortly, which will free us up for other mobile stuff. :)

The widget should be a 'HOT' widget, where I can set a property as to which List (or Tag) should be activated upon press.
Gmail has this and is a pleasure to click directly into a Gmail Label page.

francisco.melado says:
Actually the two available widgets are 3 icons wide.
4 icons wide widgets would be more useful, so you can read easily your tasks.
I don't need to put any other icon on its side, I prefer to read them easily.
4x1, 4x2, 4x3, 4x4 would be perfect.

fkj says:
I am using RTM for my own GTD setup. I currenly filled eight 2x2 Android FTM widgets onto two android screens, each screen with 4 widgets at for my GTD smartlists. Read, Write, Call, Email on one screen and Action Home, Action Work, Agenda and Waitfor on another.

When tasks have a due date that leaves something like 10 to 12 characters for task names which is a bit short.

I would love to have 4 widgets at 4x1 instead of 4 widgets at 2x2.

I could probably have two screens with one 4x4 widget for Action Home and Action Work instead of the smaller ones.

Please focus on updating the Android widgets.
