Android icon badge - today's tasks

jpearnshaw says:
I have just moved from iPhone to Android.

On the iPhone, the icon badge showed the number of today's outstanding tasks.

The Android icon doesn't shown anything. I have tried using the widget which shows a badge for all tasks, or the number of tasks outstanding on a particular list.

How can I get a badge showing number of tasks outstanding for today?

Hi jpearnshaw,
It's not possible to put a badge directly on the app icon, so the badge widget is definitely the way to set this up.

You can only show a specific list, so you'd just need to set up a Smart List that searches for due:today OR dueBefore:today and then add that as the badge widget.

Hope this helps!

I have checked out smart lists and am impressed at how powerful this feature is both on the web and the phone.

And your solution, using this method, works perfectly and solves my problem.
