I’ve been getting a lot of questions in my inbox recently about the status of TodoPaper 2.0. and rather than send out 100 copies of the same response, I thought it would be best to share it with everybody.
Are you still developing TodoPaper 2.0 or has development halted?
TodoPaper 2.0 is very much still being developed. I work on it everyday. It has taken a long time to get to where we are at today, and I still have plenty of more to do. But, we are making huge headway. TodoPaper 2.0 just finished up a private beta, in which 100 lucky fellows (out of 10,000 signups) were able to test the core functionality of TodoPaper 2.0. The beta was successful and served its purpose well. We found a number of bugs along the way and a number of changes in functionality needed to be had. This is what I am working on. I know it’s been a long road past, and there is more road ahead, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I want to deliver a product of the utmost quality and to do that a lot of time has to be put for polishing.
What effort is being taken to allow TodoPaper to sync with SimpleText.ws?
Syncing of tasks between pc’s (and phones) is the ultimate dream for TodoPaper / TaskPaper combo. (Many of you will agree.) Jesse from HogBaySoftware has created SimpleText.ws, a fantastic little web-service to make syncing of text documents much easier and robust. I am working with Jesse to port his SimpleText.ws client over to the Python programming language and ultimately wrap up a release for the Windows operating system. This will allow TodoPaper users to use SimpleText.ws to synchronize their tasks across devices.
If I buy TodoPaper 1.x now, will I have to purchase 2.0 when it is released?
Widefido has a great upgrade policy, in that upgrades in the same major release (e.g., 1.0, 1.1,…1.5, 1.6) are offered at no cost to the user after purchase. Upgrades between major versions (1.0 to 2.0 to 3.0) are offered at a reduced cost to existing customers. My policy for TodoPaper 2.0 is to offer a substantial (50%+) discount to all registered customers. I often hold sales for TodoPaper, so it’s very possible to get TodoPaper 1.x for a reduced price, which would allow a user to purchase 2.0 for a reduced price later when it is released. Also, if you are a student or a senior, please feel free to contact me about your discounts as well!
I hope this helps clear up some of the air around TodoPaper 2.0, SimpleText.ws, and purchasing 1.x and 2.0 for reduced price. If you have any other questions, comments, suggestions, or just want to chat, feel free to give me a shout in the comments or by using one of my contact methods.
