IQTELL Android Widgets

As we practice GTD®, we all need a quick way to clear our mind.  One of the main obstacles to achieving a stress-free life style is the many “things” that are floating around in our mind.  We constantly think about them, make a decision, and then repeat the process over and over again.  If we don’t get them out of our mind and into our Productivity app, we’ll lose sleep, worry, and over-stress.

IQTELL Android Widgets to the rescue…

Using the “Button Widget”, you can quickly create new items with just a tap from the home-screen.  If you are a strict GTD Practitioner you may only need the Inbox.  However, you have the power to add Buttons for every IQTELL folder, e.g., Inbox, Actions, Projects, Someday Items, etc.

Using the “List Widget”, you can add any of your lists to your home screen.  Quickly open a list, open/complete items, and more!

    As soon as I found the IQTELL widget I started using it. Another brilliant IQTELL idea!

    Love it! This was the one thing I thought was missing. Now let me pick what color the widget is (I’m not asking for a lot- maybe just a choice between a dark/black interface & the white one.) In fact that is my only wish besides the Android client having my email in it as well. Give me a dark web and app interface! I’ve already turned everyone I know onto IQTell. keep up the good work guys!

    Thank you for the wonderful widgets! I have a few requests/suggestions:

    * Display only the action and the check box. Additional information such as context, parent project, ‘Mark as completed’ etc, take up a lot of space, and I can only see a couple of actions at a time. Additional info can always be seen in the app, and not necessarily the widget

    * Apart from Context-wise options, please also provide option to list only the actions belonging to a specific project. For eg, I can have two widgets, one with the actions I need to ‘Buy a car’, and another with actions for ‘Groceries’.

    * In the main screen of the Android app, instead of showing the various options like Context, Next actions, Inbox, etc, kindly provide option to directly display the contents of one of the options. For example, I open the app, and the first thing I see is the list of Actions, or Overview tasks, or Inbox, or any other view that I chose.

    The Android app looks GORGEOUS, and these additions would make it ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!

    Thank you!

        +1 on the request to allow a widget displaying all the actions inside a project. Because one way I found to plan my day is to have a project called “today” and I assign all the tasks I want to accomplish to that project. So if I could see all my ‘today’ items on the screen, I could keep them in mind, check them off one by one, etc. That would be great. Or do you have another suggestion that works with the app as it currently operates? I want a way to do a daily review where I select tasks from across all my projects and label them as “today” and then see them all in one screen. Any ideas welcome! Thanks!!! Great app!
