web UI has no clear black and white colors but I do need a nice clear black and white web UI. I mean NOT _gray_ on white! and NOT dark gray on gray!

The web ui must need improvements everywhere! It's good that you focus on mobile, tablets, etc, but what about the users of the web app?

yes, please, an update! a nice UI with FUN!

At the same time I would appreciate to remain the shortcuts (I am a keyboard guy), seaches etc.
So it is more: more options and features and remaining easy :)
But more options for seaching, lists on the left (like "A bit better..."), easier moving, more options to sort tasks, and sorting with the mouse...., that would be awesome :)

+1 for keyboard shortcuts remaining intact.

Personally I'd love to see the notes contents rolled up and abbreviated on the main screen. After 5-6 years of devotion to RTM, I'm finding myself trying out thedeadline to get a better web ui and a better overview of the week ahead.

The iPhone & iPad UIs are working well for me.

A new UI that integrated some of the A Bit Better RTM ( functionality would be great!
Specifically, a keyboard shortcut to move tasks to a list and lists down the left side (instead of tabs) would make the web UI much more usable. I grimace every time the user script breaks and I have to use vanilla RTM.

I agree on this.
- First i was using only webapp
- then after a while RTM on android phone and ipad.
- since rtm on android and ipad is more focused on due dates I have the feeling i'm constantly switching in working method while using both interfaces styles (in webapp i'm using tag for 'Most Important Tasks' (MIT), in android/ipad app I don't use these that much.

Man, if I could vote for this two dozen times, I would. LOVE the functionality, but the UI (especially the stacked tabs) is, as the pirates say, driving me nuts.

using the android app and it's great. would love to see an updated website as well that has similarly well thought out functionality. ditto to neilio's comments about the stacked tabs. but of course, please keep the keyboard shortcuts. :D

IMHO, re-editing of elements is very unintuitive and with small (but annoying) inconsistencies.
UI :
- put BIGGER fonts and more space among lines (now it' too difficult)
- use different style (e.g. bold) between title and relative text and make a fixed vertical alignment among fields to make it more clear the differences among titles and text
- make much more evident the actual blue link-line between element and frame for editing

In the future, I'd like a double click to pop-up a more easy (bigger and complete) editing window (leaving also the current small upper right frame)
I'd like also a slow double click on list to re-editing element text on-the-fly (without clicking on list, then clicking on text field of editing frame,press ESC or other to deselect all (99% times I don't need to substitute all: I'd prefer a non pre-select all) and finally editing it

In re-editing frame:
- use the calendar-icon in date field to open a popup calendar to choose from (as 99% of other sites) instead of simple editing (that could be made by clicking on text and not on icon)
- in category field, automatically show a check-box list of categories (and it's strange create a new element using "#" for categories, but not in re-editing)
- also would be useful an help to choose also for repeat field options (using the field icon)
- clicking on element or text usually activate the editbox editing...except clicking on name category (but not on icon beside) that filter elemens for this category.
IMHO it's uninituitive and perhaps not so necessary since can be already made (in more intuitive way) by clicking on cloud category frame.

Definitely overdue a refresh.

There's clearly a big desire for vertical list menus rather than tabs, and I agree with most of bernesim's thoughts...

Would love tasks to be bigger at the top of the list than at the bottom (priority or even due, depending on your sort order?).

I am really looking forward to a redesigned web app, maybe something similar to Android tablet app. Hope you are working on it tirelessly :)
