Taskmator startet very promising as successor of the original iOS TaskPaper app. But after five updates in two month there is no obvious further development since end of march. Till the iOS 8 Update this was no problem for me, but unfortunately Taskmator doesn’t work well with iOS 8 and on the apps homepage the last post is also from the end of march.
Actually I would recommend using Editorial as iOS TaskPaper client. With the Editorial TaskPaper Mode, the Workflow feature and the option to use Python for scripting you can create lots of individual solutions for different proposes (or use the existing ones from the Editorial Workflow Directory).
I hope there will be an Taskmator Update soon, because I find the handling of the Taskmator app a little bit smoother than the Editorial TaskPaper Mode.
I actually prefer TaskPaper over FoldingText (or Markdown) when it comes to taskmanagement, because of the possibility to:
- easily move tasks up and down (drag (or touch) and drop)
- in- and outdent them
- mark tasks as complete with automatically mark them @done(YYYY-MM-DD)
- the powerful search functions
… either in the Mac app OR in the iOS clients Taskmator (before iOS 8) and Editorial. Because I’m often on the road I rely on my mobile device the iPhone and sometimes the iPad.
If I could find an iOS app with FoldingText (or Multimarkdown) features that provides my preferred movement functions, I surely would switch to FT/Markdown for taskmanagement. Than the only missing function would be the easy handling of recurring tasks or tasks that starts in the future. I don’t like my actual solution with putting these kind of tasks in apple reminders, because I have to deal with two different tasklists.
