How do you know an app is well-written, stable and useful? When you don’t know for 5 months that the publisher shut things down! I loves me some Got To Do, the wonderful ToDo app for Android which is based on the GTD method. It integrates perfectly with Toodledo, which means that I can keep my todo list synchronized anywhere that has web access, as well as on my phone. It’s a perfect solution for my needs!
I upgraded to version 1.4.1 when it came out in February of this year (2011) and have had no issues. Everything is seamless. It didn’t even occur to me that it had been a while since the app was updated.
I am on the email list for Pure Calendar, since I switch between using it and the Android Agenda Widget. Today (8/17/2011) I got an email on the list about Toodledo integration. The email said that this was a highly requested feature, since Got To Do is no more. My reaction was: Wait now, what?
I went directly to the Got To Do website, of course. And sure enough, there was the project shutdown announcement posted on 3/17/11:
increased workload for the following few years. For this reason, I have had to make the decision to stop developing Got To Do, to concentrate all my efforts and hours on my new role.
Well, I’ll be damned! My absolute favorite To Do app, and a key part of my PIM suite, is gone! What’s a fella to do?
To answer my own question: I’m sticking with Got To Do 1.4.1 until it stops working. After that, I dunno. Maybe there’ll be a native Toodledo app by then. Or AAW will have direct Toodledo integration.
What’s your opinion? What are you going to do?
