iPhone app

arr says:

I was wondering if there were any plans for a native iPhone app... Sure, web apps are great and all, but they can't really do cool things like alerts and whatnot. Also, the iPhone lacks a to-do list app at all so there's nothing to sync with.

It would be a great app and something I would gladly pay for. The only native todo list apps now for the iPhone are not so good. I miss the functionality that my Palm E2 to-do list app had (although it was pretty low tech).

Thanks for your patience everyone! :) Our native iPhone app is now available on the App Store. Please see the announcement on the blog and RTM for iPhone and iPod touch mini-site for more details.

We've also created a new forum specifically for the app -- as this forum topic is getting a little long, I'm going to close this topic and ask folks to please continue any iPhone conversations over on the new forum.

Thanks! :)

I agree, the lack of a good native todo app on the iPhone is what led me to RTM in the first place. The mobile safari version of RTM is great, but making it native would be even better.

criminal109 Pro says:

I find the web applications useful, but a bit cumbersome and slow to use on the iPhone. A native, lickity-fast RTM application on the iPhone with sync capability to the web would be huge! I prefer to send emails to RTM to record a new task rather than suffer through the web interface.

(That said, I am thankful for the web interface to get access to all my tasks remotely when I really need to)

I just read yesterday that Google is making Google Gears available for some mobile phone platforms (Windows Mobile being one of them). Hopefully when Apple releases the SDK, Google will add functionality of Google Gears to the iPhone. I think this would allow RTM to function on the iPhone along with a host of different native iPhone apps.

Posted 6 years ago

erifneerg says:

clearly, it needs to be an offline app. Well, at least i would like it to be offline for the ipod touch. Then my choice of 'pda' would be clear. i've been a fan of the HTC Touch but waiting for it to come out for verizion. If/once the app is release and is usible offline then my will be choice clear.

Posted 6 years ago

edden52 Pro says:

Agreed. A native app would be just the ticket. With full capabilities like the web version. But with a user friendly interface - date selection, repeatable events, etc. via graphical selection with minimal character input. Perhaps auto sync back to RTM every few hours along with a manual option. You've got the web utility and a customer base so you're a step ahead of the competition. The OSX ToDo program, which many developers may be forced to sync with, lacks much of what RTM offers - another advantage. I want (need) a native ToDo app and will gravitate toward whatever usable app appears that fits my needs; so much the better if RTM offers it up first.

+1 bump

I need offline capabilities on the iPhone. EDGE is ssslllooooww and connectivity is not always available. It needs to be native and not some kind of Google Gears for Mobile (only available for Windows mobile at the moment anyway) solution as otherwise you guys will get killed by dozens of native, pretty GTD apps that *will* come out for iPhone in June.

asifm42 says:

I agree.

Native iPhone apps for the following would make the iphone so much better.

RTM
gmail - ability to search and label
gcalendar - ability to see your other calendars
ability to sync notes

Sorry to sort of change the subject. RTM on the edge hurts and 3g is not going to be as a fast as a native app that automatically syncs on user controlled timer. so +1 for native RTM app.

Posted 6 years ago

chriswitt says:


I just want to add my name to the list of interested parties wanting the RTM app to be native and "lickity-fast" as stated above. That would rule!

I find the iPhone-like site (i.rtm.com) to be too slow over edge, and end up using the m.rtm.com site instead.

Anyway - keep up the good work!

ian.betteridge says:

I'll add my vote to a native iPhone app too. Obviously, thanks to the "no background processes" rule it won't be able to sync in the background - but syncing when you launch/quit it should be more than enough. Basically something that replicates the features of the current (excellent) iPHone web interface, but which is available when I'm on the subway :)

kevin.bouck says:

add another vote for native iphone (online/offline) interface. A google gears capable web interface would also be meet the online/offline requirement, but wouldn't be as slick as a native interface.

isosceles says:

I think RTM needs a native iPhone app and a native desktop app. Take a look at evernote.com. They haven't released a native iPhone app, but I'm sure they could and that's the functionality I would love in RTM.

As an example. I could run the RTM app on my desktop (possibly with iCal integration) sync it to the cloud. Then I can open the app on my iPhone and see the changes. Then go to iGoogle and see it there. And for quick entires I can still use the Quicksilver plugin.

I need better reminders and the more platforms the better I can stay on track. Using the web app just never works if I want to add a task quickly.

I have been using other online todo apps that work with the iPhone and switched to RTM because of it's integration with GMail. I tried the iPhone interface trial and it was good but like others have said, a bit slow. I've been holding off on getting a Pro account to see if some good native todo apps will be available. But I would definitely get a RTM Pro account if it included a native iPhone app! I would like to know if this is being considered or currently being worked on.

Push is a must.

I really think a native iPhone app is the missing link here. I love GTD w/ RTM but I can't work RTM it into my daily life at this point. It's just too impractical. I need to be able to add a task the moment I think of it. No matter where I am. Inspiration strikes at random moments... rarely when I am sitting at a computer & logged into RTM. I can write it down on paper but I usually end up loosing it or being too lazy to enter all of my scribbles into RTM at the end of the day.

I'm sure u could build it easy, 'case ur obviously clever... ;-)

Also, it would be SUPERCOOL if u could use the iPhone's new GPS to automatically find out the location and serve u up things to do based on that. How slick'd that be?
You're probably already on it.

chrisbx Pro says:

I agree and look forward to a great native RTM app for iPhone and iPod Touch. It would be perfect !
The single problem with the web app is indeed when we cannot connect to the web or when the connection is very slow. For instance, I was doing shopping yesterday but I could not connect to the web in the supermarket. So I could not consult my errand list on my iPhone !
So, with a native app, it would be very useful that this app could keep the tasks from the last sync and send the modifications at the next sync (modifications made when the iPhone was off-line).

alberto.bietti says:

While looking for an RTM app on the AppStore on iTunes, I found the Todo app (one word, or you'll find a different app), which synchronizes with RTM, and it looks pretty good, but:
- it isn't free (10$)
- it doesn't seem to support locations, maps or anything similar
- it's not made by RTM ;-)
- I don't think the app notifies you directly on the phone for tasks, but that's apple's fault, since they don't even let apps run in the background (therefore no notifications)... I know they plan to add some notification servers sometime soon, but that would need an internet connection, and the main point is to have an offline app (and only synchronize when you're online), so... thanks Apple... :-(

I don't have an iPhone yet, but I plan to get one sometime soon now, and I will rather wait for Bob to eat many bananas and finish his coding on that something ;-)

At first glance, it seems very much like MilkSync for Blackberry, i.e., the tasks come over but no list information.

I posted a question in the program's google groups board about how it handles lists and smart lists, and look forward to learning more.

Emily/Bob - Here you have a programmer using your API to beat you to the market. I am both impressed at your openness and worried about the competition. I think this effort compels you all to deliver a solution that includes the list constructs on the iPhone/iPod, or to duplicate his effort for less than his asking price, or to partner with him in some way, I suppose. I will watch to see the results of Bob's labors most eagerly. More bananas!

I just bought Todo, and at least for a GTD type setup that uses smart lists, it is entirely useless.

Appigo's Todo will not sync any smart list whatsoever. It can only do static lists. As a result after syncing I get a single list with 200 items. It is impossible to find anything and I'll likely delete the app.

Posted 6 years ago

chriswitt says:

@chrisbx

The application sync's all your lists EXCEPT smartlists. So on the application, you'll see your static, manually created lists separated, etc., and you can assign new tasks to those lists just fine.

I think that's what your asking...

For me, when mobile, I only care about things due "Today" so I'm less affected by the smartlists.

I was really, really looking for something that would allow me to use RTM on my phone that was faster than the web, and this saves me from having to learn a new system like Things or OmniFocus (aka, the most expensive task app on earth).

If RTM wants to come out with their own app, great. In the mean time, I think the Appigo app is more than what I was expecting and works (so far) flawlessly.

To each his own I guess. I was hoping to just clear up as much as possible with this post.

chriswitt is correct. Static lists get sync'd, but smart are simply ignored as if they did not exist. If you have mainly static lists, this probably works fairly well for you. But I have not found out yet how to get a decent GTD type setup with RTM that use mostly static lists.

If anyone has a good GTD style setup with RTM that works with ToDo, I'd love to hear about it. In the meantime I am back to the web interface.

Whoa so it does. I just tried it out and it's pretty nice. I'd still reallllly like to see Bob whoop something up but this certainly works in the meantime.

Quick review:
Set up is dead simple
Initial sync took a couple of minutes (i have 1000+ completed tasks)
The data model fits nicely with RTM (tasks, lists, priorities, etc)
Adding tasks is pretty easy
So far pushing changes back up is taking quite a while... not sure if it's my connection, the server, or that maybe it's pushing/pulling all 1000+ with each sync?

Either way, totally solid app that works great.

yes to a native app. I am willing to pay for a native app because I have an iTouch and unlike an iPhone I do not necessarily have constant access to internet. I am also willing to pay if the app lives up to RTM standards (which i'm sure it will)

also, please hurry i cannot rely on those other crappy todo's available now.

Since we have no indication when an RTM iPhone app may be released, I went ahead and coughed up the $10 for Appigo Todo. It's pretty nice. Fairly snappy and intuitive. The only issue for me is lack of support for Smart Lists which are pretty much all I use. But I suppose it'll do for now!

Maybe purchasing that app will guarantee RTM's will come out soon..

For all you ipod/iphone owners, there is an application called Zenbe lists which I'm sure you've heard of by now. It includes sync funtionality and the ability to make lists on the mobile device at the least. A native RTM application would be nice though.

sjb says:

Another vote for the native RTM iPhone App. I too am using Apogee's ToDo and actually a pretty nifty little app. As everyone has pointed out a very nice interface and frankly once you use a native app..there's no going back to a web-app...gosh in RTM....just to wait each screen to redraw is painful in edge....better to use the iPhone for quick on the fly checking your list adding tasks to the inbox and my favorite entry method...Jott.

While the jott iPhone app is not as good as ReQall, the phone application in jott is better than ReQall. You just call the toll free number, Jott says, who you wannna call and you say, "remember the milk" and then you blab on. Then a couple of minutes later you select the refresh button on the bottom left of ToDo and there is your transcripted blab as a task in your inbox.

You can quickly process to the desired RTM list, assign a due date, assign a priority level and add some notes in mere seconds.

What is missing are 1) tags, 2) location, 3) Repeat patterns but other than that very nice app.

One unique feature which is not in RTM but is really sweet is that you assign a task "type" and can set it as "normal" default, to call a contact, email a contact or visit a website and with each of these options other than "normal" you get a popup screen to specify a contact or web page...too cool.

Posted 6 years ago

sjb says:

Forgot to mention the other "holy grail" for my preferred way of working would be to have RTM or another system better integrate with my calendar in iCal which is also synced to the iPhone via MobileME.

Why...as many of us know...when you check your massive to do list, eventually you decide on doing one or more tasks on a specific day and perhaps even a time. For me translating tasks to a time commitment on a calendar is what better prepares me to do the task. In iCal this is pretty easy..you can actually drag todo's onto the calendar.

Also fascinating that Apple does give you access to your iCal tasks in Mobile me on the web...so you can see the same tasks online and on your mac at home but...why not the iPhone...bizzare considering Mobile Me syncs contacts, calendar and mail, and documents and bookmarks.

As of now...only Omnifocus plays nicely with iCal but that is an awfully steep price to pay for admission....$80 for the desktop app and $20 for the iPHone app....

Anyway, I'm going to try to sit tight and watch this space for a month or so and see how things and Omnifocus and RTM and a host of other task management software battle it out in the new application store space....

kutyshalev Pro says:

Here is a critical issue I want to bring up.

Let's assume this native iphone application exists for RTM.

The question I have is how exactly will it sync with the web ? As a native app, I am not looking for a long delay until I am able to flick a todo as "done" but I also want to make sure I am looking at my "latest" list, even if I had updated it just a few minutes ago on my computer.

I am hoping that RTM will implement a local DB on the iphone and while each time I enter the application, I understand that an internet connection will be created to sync the local DB to the server - don't make me wait. Show me all the tasks in the local DB and allow me to complete one right there.

And then, once the new tasks/info have downloaded from the web, update the local db.

Possible? Or will we have a few second (lets call it 5-10 seconds) delay between selecting the app and actually being able to use it...

Thanks!

I gladly paid $25 for the pro account because (a) I love RTM and (b) I like to support companies I believe in.

Since signing up for RTM less than a month ago, I have come to rely on it as my main GTD motivator. It is unbelievable how more productive I have become.

Initially, I think it should be pretty barebones, but the possibilities are endless here -- integration with Google Maps, calendaring, etc. This could be one of the top iPhone apps of all time.

Dudes, Emily just said less than two weeks ago that it is coming along, so we all just need to chill. I am fine using the clunky web app until the native app is released. I am sure it'll kick butt when it comes out.

As for another app stealing its thunder, there were plenty of todo apps and sites available before RTM, yet there is a reason RTM is the best. I am sure the reason the native app is taking a little while is they want to do it right, rather than rush it out.

That said, I'd prefer to have it before they go all-out and implement calendar and map integration.

I'd happily pay for that, in fact I WANT to pay for that, I have my credit card ready and waiting, bring it on...ps: If we could have a native desktop version as well to complement the website service that would be perfect.

I'd also rather wait until Bob has time to test it than rush it out the door. Nothing quite like waiting for an app only to have its release be somewhat bumpier than it should be (*ahem* SplashID)

I am considering RTM because it has no calendar or email synching and I don't own a mac so all my to-dos could be gone if my phone crashes. Things is definitely quicker than RTM, too.

Keep in mind that they can't make it free for only pro users since apple's store doesn't have a "discount code" or anything like that. Apple does not offer different prices for different people, and it's not as if they can distribute it directly.

What they can do is limit what people can do based on their pro status. The API can tell if you're pro and let you do different things. Maybe for example, the app would be free, but would only connect to a pro account. An even better solution to be would be make it free, full connect to pro accounts, but let non-pro connect to shared lists or something. That way the pro users can convert people ;) "I want to share a list with you, just download the free RTM app, and you will have my grocery list" etc.

If I want to add something to my inbox with RTM, I first have to wait the 4 to sometimes 30 seconds for the pages to load on my iPhone 3G. Then I have to click the + button and wait another couple seconds, then click on the task name to start entering the task.

I want RTM to work more like the new version of Things. Within 4 seconds I can be entering a new task into my inbox.

I want to use RTM, not Things. But, I simply can't use a program that requires me to wait 15 to 40 seconds (depending on wireless reception) to enter in a task.

For the iPhone user, a native app is a must.

@scott224 - I am not an iPhone user, so I cannot comment on the platform, but I can only assume composing an email is faster than what you describe. Assuming that is so, why not add your RTM import address as a contact and then zip off an email on the go, which will be waiting for you in RTM when you next have time to cull your inbox?

It is six months ago today that someone suggested a native app. Since then 257 posts have followed, with that majority in full support.

Let's have some cake and hope the competition does not come up with something better (I know there are others out there already but they are not as good as RTM, yet!!)

binaryeric says:

I don't get it. Why wouldn't RTM at least provide some info about a native app??? I understand not publishing features, etc but can you at least write a blog confirming that the app is indeed on the way and give a rough idea of when it will arrive??

I am in the same boat as many others... I thought the RTM app would arrive sometime shortly after July 11th but here we are at Aug 22nd and still not even a confirmation that it will exist.

I *really* need an RTM app for offline task entry on my iPod touch and Todo already exists and is apparently pretty good... I would wait if I had *something* to go on... but without out, I will have to give up and buy Todo instead.

I think those of you griping about a "native" iPhone would do fine with the Todo app from appigo or whatever they call themselves.

As much as I'd jump on a native app, I saved myself headache and heartbreak waiting on Bob the monkey. You're already paying $25/year for Pro (which you will need for the native app if you're not already) so the $10 for the Todo app is not that steep. You could even switch to toodledo for the time being and forego a pro subscription altogether. Not to mention it's a $500 phone you're tacking this onto.

If you value your time and productivity, $10 for immediate gratification and additional productivity is but a small price. Plus, helping third party developers eat is the best way to keep these great third-party solutions coming our way.

Just my 2 cents. Not starting a flame war. It's just that I was in a similar position but after buying Todo, I can just lay back and check here every now and then.

Native RTM better be really good to blow the competition away though. Better feed Bob some bananas laced with crack! lol

I love RTM! Keep up the great work! I bought Omni focus for iPhone but it runs so slow (takes like 30 seconds just to open) that it became impractical to add quick todos. Plus no sync for Windows.

Switched to Todo which is solid but does not auto-sync, does not allow you to see saved searches, and doesn't support tags. (Plus doesn't have the cute cow logo). The other annoying feature is you can't hotlink phone numbers from notes.

Love to see what RTM comes up with and will likely switch yet again.

As long as I don't leave my country, Japan, the web version works fine since our carrier, Soft Bank, set the price cap for the data transaction in Japan.

But I turn data roaming off when I go abroad, so the current web version becomes useless unless I am getting WiFi access.

I am tempted to switch to a different iPhone application, not renewing the RTM pro account, just because of that. Why have I not done it yet? Because I like the design and smart entry system like "tod", "sat", etc.

Please make the iPhone app version. It must be a killer application!

Ok, I give. If RTM was developing a native app and had plans to release it any time soon, I would expect that they would mention it officially on their blog with an ETA.

I bought todo. It's 9.99, which is about 40% of what RTM Pro costs for an entire year, which sucks - but I really can't wait any longer for offline task entry.

I've let my Pro trial lapse as I wait for the iPhone app. I just can't see how RTM would be able to credit me when I purchase the iPhone app from the App Store.

So I'm using the mobile version of RTM, but in general my usage has declined because it's much less usable. The Pro version has bitten me several times in that it doesn't work offline; I've been traveling a lot lately, with data roaming turned off, and suddenly I'm disconnected entirely from my to-do application. It's a recipe for not getting things done. :)

I appreciate the update, Arvid, but I really do hope we're talking sooner rather than later on this app.

Hey guys, quit harassing them over it, chances are, the reason it's not done is because it isn't done yet. If anyone here thinks it's easy to write a solid application ready for the public, you're nuts. Especially since this is, in a way, a third platform for the application which is largely different and has some rather great hurdles to cross.

If and when it lives up to the standards of the great RTM employees, we'll get it, in the meantime, use the other options mentioned here or offer support, but stop it with the badgering.

Posted 5 years ago

vanilla8 says:

njustn - Of course you're right. However, IMO the negativity building up here is NOT purely about how long the app is taking to be built...it's really down to the lack of communication.

Trying to get an update on progress has been akin to the proverbial getting blood out of a stone. If they can't see it arriving until early next year for example, fine, just tell us for crying out loud - post it on the forum or on the main blog and then we can move on, we wouldn't be particularly happy but at least we'd know and respect them for advising us..its not that difficult.

Back in early July if Emily had instead posted that 'Bob' was working away and hoping to give us a nice xmas present or maybe a nice New years gift for example rather than the vague entry actually posted that would have saved an awful lot of frustrated postings from people waiting for the app.

Just talk to your customers and be open is the learning.

dara.pressley says:

@vanilla8

I agree with the lack of communication part. There is the impression that the app will be out any day, which of course means that people are check ing this forum everyday for an update. A very loose time guesstimate would be helpful in just calming folks down.

What also would be nice is to email members updates when there are new features available -- including this app.

I, for one, did buy the To Do app, but only to use until RTM is available. At only 9.99 I'm not breaking the bank to use it in the mean time. I still have access to my RTM list even though I don't have all the features RTM would hopefully offer (like tagging).

Anyway, the moral of the story is that more communications with users is better than hardly any. Check out Evernote, for example -- they twitter their information (updates, news, blog postings, tips & tricks, etc) and routinely send out emails about updates.

spencer.creasey says:

No harassment intended. I just feel bad for RTM. They fit perfectly into the day to day use of an iPhone and not developing that sooner than later makes me hope that most people won't jump ship while an app is in the works.

I've tried a number of task managers (probably like most of us here) for the iphone and personally, I think Todo is easily the best. I'm really happy with it.

It makes me wonder: if Todo supported smartlists, would you even bother or need an app specifically created by RTM? Smartlists seem to be the only missing piece! There's talk of supporting RTM, but you have to have a pro account for Todo, so you're supporting them anyway...

emily (Remember The Milk) says:

For anyone missing the posts from RTM team members in this topic, there have been 6 posts that confirm that Bob and the team are working hard on something (I posted even before the App Store became available, as I knew this would be a hot topic).

As I said before, "if there's something to share, you can be sure we'll share it". :)

We have no desire to leave you guys in the dark about anything, but there really aren't any updates available... apart from the fact that Bob and the team are still working hard. :) If there were further updates, I'd be posting them (as fun as all the friendly hassling is... ;)

rajington posted earlier in this topic that Blizzard (the game developer/publisher) has the stance that "products will be released when they are finished, polished and can meet the fan expectations and the blizzard name". I wholeheartedly agree with that stance and think it represents us pretty well too (er, except replace 'Blizzard' with 'RTM' :)

I don't anticipate having any further updates until the release of that something that Bob and the team are working hard on. That release will happen just as soon as the criteria in the previous paragraph are met, and you can be sure that we're working our hardest to make that happen as soon as we can (hopefully not 2010, as jkrell expects :)

One last thing... a huge thanks to everyone who's posted supportive messages in this topic. We really do appreciate all your support. :)

Todo from appigo keeps getting better (now with sync on startup). RTM is and always will be a web service first and foremost. Plus, RTM is run by a really tight, small team doing amazing things. iPhone development is a lot more involving than most people realize not to mention all the red tape setting it up.

I look forward to whatever wonderful ideas RTM can bring to a native app even just for some friendly competition but the majority of what people are seeking is available here and now if you just pay an additional $10.

My question is, will RTM be developing a native app exclusively for Pro members? Or will being a pro member unlock more features?

After my initial experiences using the Web App on the iPhone in the grocery store, I wouldn't continue to use RTM without a true native application.

Here's hoping that it comes sooner rather than later! ToDo looks like a good backup, but I suspect that what RTM provides is going to blow it out of the water (I'm really interested in what you'll do with location aware tasks). So, I'll hold off for now and see what develops.

The web interface is incredible, but I can't always be in WiFi range to use it.

Buy Todo by Appigo - it works very well with RTM and costs less than a movie ticket.

I've offered to help them create a native app, I haven't heard anything back from them though(Maybe they are doing it internally). I would just create it but I don't want to spend hours on something that they will not allow so until I get the OK I'm not working anymore it.

Yes, a capable offline native app that works offline would rock. I would even pay for it.

So, after reading the Lifehacker interview with Emily Boyd, I'm even MORE excited about the native app. And to be honest, I hope they charge $10-$20 bucks for it, because they DESERVE it. RTM is easily the best non-Google web application on the market. And for all of you who don't have a Pro account on this string, GET ONE! (Unless you're a starving student, because that's like 6 beers.) But seriously, even if you don't have an iPhone, it's RTM's primary source of revenue, so you should support the product you use and love by giving them a measly $25.

Okay, I'm done gushing.

uh-oh, Toodledo just release their native app on the appstore. Not sure if I can wait much longer before looking elsewhere. :-(

derickvaladao says:

I have to agree @owen.delaney that seeing Toodledo on the App Store with no official word from RTM is disconcerting. I went with RTM because of the awesome ways to add to the list and the simplicity of the interface (without betraying the inherent depth to it at that). However, it's getting harder to wait for an App. I'm ok with the web interface for now but, despite is solid design, is slow due to the limitations of the browser interface.

Can you guys at least re-author it using the recently reported hack over at Ars Technica to get rid of the useless toolbars?

ameuret says:

Here's how naive one can be: last week I applied for an API key, explaining I was a big fan of RTM but I missed a calendar sync for my iPhone. I proposed to develop a full-fledged native app for free (with possibly a USD -.99 fee for power users).

Guess what ! They have not answered... poor me.

+1 for an iphone app. i work on a farm sometimes and there's no connection, yet i still need to be reminded! a native app would address that.

Uhhh, I just tried out the Toodled webapp-I was really excited by the native iPhone app and printable folding list (pretty cool idea). However, five minutes with the app and you just feel that it is really, really, really fugly. It seriously looks like a Win3.1 (pre-Win95) app!
My eyes couldn't take it. To sync with the web app and run around native is what we all want. In the end though you spend the most time with the app in the browser. So I'm going to wait for RTM's native cuz their browser view is so beautiful and functional.
For the semi-anal tasker technophile (that sounds really bad, but describes me here at my macbook) this wait for the RTM native app feels like I'm eight years old waiting for Christmas!
When will it come? Can't we just open our native app now? Stop hiding it in the attic!
It'll be good. It'll be good. Waiting is so bitter sweet!
Wonder what I'll pine for after the app is realeased! ;)

Is there any movement on this? I live in an area where I can't have wifi all of the time and would love to be able to sync in the morning and go about my day

I would pay for the app $10-20 if it is good. I am sure others would too. make it pro only...

Hello, there.

I'm developing an iPhone native application for RTM, named Milpon.
Currently it is in a beta testing phase. Please be a beta tester if you feel interested in. Send me a mail (mootoh at gmail dot com) with your iPhone/iPod touch UUID, then I will regist your device and tell the application download URL.

See more information on the project page and join the group to discuss about it.

jwander14 Pro says:

After getting REALLY frustrated waiting for a native app, I tried the Appigo/toodledo combo. Appigo worked well on the iphone but I like the RTM user interface much better. I decided to come back to RTM and I purchased a pro account. I must have drank too much of Bob's banana-flavored Kool-Aid!

I have one request: Please don't charge for the iphone app.

I would like to propose an option for the pricing. Offer a free download from the itunes store for the app. Offer syncing and some other features only when you upgrade to a pro account. This way, you can showcase a bit of the magic of RTM and then when people get hooked and want to upgrade (and they will want to upgrade), you get your revenue. Additionally, many people like me would be happy and wouldn't feel cheated for upgrading to pro within weeks (days?, hours?, minutes?) before the app will be ready and then having to purchase the app on top of the upgrade.

Thanks for the consideration and keep up the good work!

jonjudelson says:

One important reason we need the app is speed. Even over wifi, there is a delay when you are operating the RTM site on safari on the iPhone. In order to replace paper, it's got to be nearly as fast if not faster.

This thread has been open for ~10 months, can we at least start beta (or alpha) testing what you have?

Thanks!

Hi there, one request to add to this. I use an iPod touch so do not have inbuilt gps capabilities. It'd be great to be able to manually tell RTM my location from the list that I've made. This way the app can use smart location based lists without needing any gps capabilities.

Can't wait for the release!

james.basbas says:

RTM a huge disappointment. I have been waiting for a native app forever, with no communication or even hope that one is coming. So I had to download Todo which isn't perfect but I like it. The real kicker is, I find myself using Todo more often now because I have an Ipod touch and don't have wifi at work so RTM won't sync with it until I get home. Having used it like this for a while, I can't really justify re-upping my pro account. Therefore, by not having a native app, not only did RTM lose the money I would have paid for one (and gave to Appigo), but you have lost a pro user as well. That's a shame.

Wanting to report an issue with RTM I stumbled across a link that lets you report a bug about the alpha/beta version of the iPhone software. Proof that they are developing the software.

Unfortunately, I haven't been selected to be a alpha/beta tester of the software.

To RTM developers...pick me!...pick me!

To the people who are bashing the RTM staff about communication...

If you read previous posts on this thread you will see that

chrisbx, I did ask Bob when he might be done, but he's a secretive little fellow, and wouldn't let anything slip. :(

He did say to let you all know that he really appreciates the bananas you've been sending his way (in fact, I think he's starting to look a bit chubby!).

As for a release date, I think tjndds may be onto something... when the last two lines of code are written sounds about right. :) We're doing everything we can to hurry Bob along though.

For anyone missing the posts from RTM team members in this topic, there have been 6 posts that confirm that Bob and the team are working hard on something (I posted even before the App Store became available, as I knew this would be a hot topic).

As I said before, "if there's something to share, you can be sure we'll share it". :)

We have no desire to leave you guys in the dark about anything, but there really aren't any updates available... apart from the fact that Bob and the team are still working hard. :) If there were further updates, I'd be posting them (as fun as all the friendly hassling is... ;)

rajington posted earlier in this topic that Blizzard (the game developer/publisher) has the stance that "products will be released when they are finished, polished and can meet the fan expectations and the blizzard name". I wholeheartedly agree with that stance and think it represents us pretty well too (er, except replace 'Blizzard' with 'RTM' :)

I don't anticipate having any further updates until the release of that something that Bob and the team are working hard on. That release will happen just as soon as the criteria in the previous paragraph are met, and you can be sure that we're working our hardest to make that happen as soon as we can (hopefully not 2010, as jkrell expects :)

One last thing... a huge thanks to everyone who's posted supportive messages in this topic. We really do appreciate all your support. :)
