Mobile App: New Version 3.2

We have recently launched a new version of the mobile app in which we have completely redesigned the Clarify stage to make it more complete and easy to use.

The new design shows a more compact view of the data and allows the most common data to be edited on the main screen. The number of actions that remain to be clarified is shown and decision-making can be done in a simpler way at the bottom. You can also create a new project, goal, or focus area if necessary.

We have added all the missing functionality so that you can clarify with the mobile app just like you do with the web app. Now you can indicate expected dates in the Next Actions, as well as their selection criteria.

We have also redesigned the task editor with an interface very similar to that of the Clarify stage, and with full functionality:

Finally, we have tweaked the Capture stage so that it runs immediately. If it is your default start option, you will be able to capture much faster when you need it:

SOOOOO much better Francisco! Awesome! The app was pretty much not useful in the past (in my opinion) for clarifying and other organization steps. I only used it to capture and check off things complete. This makes it useful!

Yes, please, and thank you.

The web app for FacileThings is powerful and empowering. The mobile app was anything but.

This new update brings the mobile app into a position where I can now use it on the go to capture, clarify, organize, and engage my life while I am in motion.

Excellent work!

Same as Cyrus here, the mobile (Android) app was very disappointing for a long time, while the browser workflow was amazing. Now, Francisco, you have been moving really towards a mobile version that could be comfortably used without ever connecting to FT in your browser. Huge improvement. Thanks so much. Greetings from Rome!

So far, really enjoying the update. Three items to consider, please, as part of the next update.

- Add Focus Star to the "Choice Criteria" screen.
- Add the ability to put a Focus Star on any task (still cannot do this with the mobile app on iOS as far as I can tell)
- Separate context tag set from collaborator tag set. They are all being put together which makes it difficult to quickly scan for what I want to add. Do something similar to how the Clarify view does it today on the web app.
