    Default To-Do List

    What the fuck is the deal with the lack of a to-do list app. It seems like it would not be incredibly difficult to program one. I would greatly appreciate it if someone made a to do list app

    To do list for IvanMalison:

    1. Learn C (or Objective C)
    2. Write "to do list" application
    3. Treat yourself to lunch to express your "great appreciation"

    Et Voila!

    The iPhone ships with a todo list app... its called "NOTES". If you need to be nagged to do something, use the calendar app.

    wow, you guys are pretty hostile. If i could program the application myself I wouldn't be asking someone else to do it... And the notes and calendar applications are no subsitute for genuine to-do list.

    Here's how your original post came across:

    Hi I'm Ivan Malison (yes, THE Ivan Malison) and I need a to do list application. Someone needs to get their thumb out of their ass and get cracking on this. Should be a piece of cake. I'll tell my secretary to shoot you an email when you're done. How about a $5 iTunes gift certificate to sweeten the pot?

    Now hop to it kids! I want this yesterday!

    Thus the less than enthusiastic response...

    It is complete bullshit that Apple did not include some kind of basic task function (that also has a date and time reminders like in iCal). There are no excuses, and the notes app or a web 2.0 app will just not do.

    I can understand that many features are not quite there yet (i.e. cut&paste, multi-calendars, address book, cached browsing, ichat, etc.) since this is a revolutionary product, but this was a major oversight or Apple/ATT wants us to be only using web apps (for the data revenues).

    Users need to have an option to have off-line viewing and editing of tasks with set date/time reminders and completion tracking. I would pay for an app that does this and could even sync to both iCal and Outlook over bluetooth (Mac, and/or PC syncs) like with my old HP iPaq.

    Here is a very basic approach until Leopard and iPhone task apps are released by Apple. You need to use some of the apps from the Installer.app program. I decided to not use the Apple Notes since it does not allow backup or easy edits of the files back on my Mac.

    It is a somewhat archaic approach since there is no way to schedule reminders or status on tasks (unless you move it into a calendar event). But at least it gets tasks down into a text file that can edited on both your iPhone and Mac, and moved to native apps when they become available.

    1. Use OpenSSH as the SFTP server on the iPhone (you should change the default password for more security).
    2. Use an SFTP program such as Transmit for easy file transfer between Mac and iPhone (including upload, download, and backup text files).
    3. Create a new folder in \root\media\ that is named such as "YourName Tasks" or something unique.
    4. Copy or create your text file to-do lists here (i.e. Home To Do List.txt, Work To Do List.txt).
    5. Use MobileTextEdit and TextEdit (on Mac or NotePad for Win) to create & edit your text files. MobileFinder can be used to easily launch the task list.

    Note: I'm not responsible if something goes wrong, so be careful when you create and edit files/folders on your iPhone.

    You know what I'm sick of? People who are nothing but pure consumers bitching about other people's amazing creations because it doesn't do exactly what they want. If you haven't got the mental capacity to build what you want yourself, then STFU and consume what's put in front of you like a good little sheep. Don't whine about "no excuse" when you contribute exactly zero. If you love the damn ipaq so much, then why'd you buy an iPhone?

    Sorry, but I deal with this kind of ifiot every day at my job, and I'm tired of putting up with this ridiculous mindset of entitlement. Do I think a todo list on the iPhone would be useful? Yes. Am I gonna whine like a little girl and imply that apple are idiots for not giving it to me in rev 1? No - I have more self respect than that.
    "Are you into S&M?"
    "Well...I'm a Red Sox fan. Does that count?"
    Go Sox!
