    Used this app for a few years now. The look has kept improving but I can no longer sync with Google, making this pretty useless as I switch between my phone and tablet a lot. Shame as it was great.

    As the up was updated, more and more nonsense crept in, i.e. completely unnesessary, gee-whiz animations. Then, there were huge sync-conflict issues with Google Tasks.

    The sync to SDcard feature is great! This kind of thing is just what we need apps to do so we can fully host our own cloud. Thanks Dev; A+++ Would app again!

    excellent for handling google tasks and keep them in sync. however, an option to set global settings for widgets (transparency, fonts, etc) would be GREAT.

    Clean and simple. Dark theme is great for night time use. User friendly. Full featured. Sync is great.
