Shortcuts (bookmark lists) on the home screen

chicagojosh says:
I'd love to be able to place bookmarks of lists on the desktop. It would make accessing often used lists quicker and easier, along with being an additional reminder for ad-hoc lists.

Have you tried using AnyCut if there's anything you can access from the outside?

I've tried with AnyCut, RTM doesn't expose an intent, other than its Main intent.

Josh's request is excellent. It's something I'd appreciate very much.

While only published lists have permalinks in the interface, it is possible to link directly to unpublished lists and Smart Lists too (but you'd need to construct the URL yourself). You could then use those URLs in bookmarks.

The format for URLs is:

You can find the list ID by looking at the print, iCalendar, or Atom feed links (which all follow the /username/listid/ pattern too).

Hope this helps!

@andrewski --- will that bring up the RTM android program, or is that going to open the list in the browser? I think that chicagojosh was talking about having an option to insert a home-screen shortcut which takes you directly to a specific list.

Which would be a GREAT feature, since it is really difficult to navigate to specific Smart Lists, since they come after your fixed lists. To switch between smart lists that are used constantly throughout the day, you have to hit too many buttons (menu - views - lists - scroll to the list) It would be great to have homescreen icons next to the widget to take you to specific lists.

You can sort of do this with the new widget customisation, but it will use a lot of screen real estate.

Add the 2x2 widget multiple times, and select the list you want (you can choose a smart list). Then you can click on the widget to go to that list. You would be able to fit in 4 on one screen.

How about a 1x1 widget for this in a future release?

austinkirk: You're right, I misunderstood the request; my comment was regarding the website.

Yeah, I have several 2x2 widgets already, but it would be nice to be able to put a lot more on a page.
