Arrow Keys To Move Up and Down Tasks?

Why is K and J for moving up and down...the arrow keys aren't being used for anything.

Also really great job with the new app! :)

J and K are probably used because they were the up and down keys in vi, a text editor for Unix. They've become ingrained into geek (and therefore computer) culture because of that.

However, I agree with you - now that keyboards actually have arrow keys (and have for approximately a million years in computer time), they should be supported too.
