P.S. Notes has been updated

P.S. Notes isn’t the only thing that has been updated, either! DayJournal, DayTasks, and P.S. Notes have all been updated. Here are the notes about what’s new.

DayTasks, DayJournal, and P.S. Notes have been updated to use the HeaderBar so they look better and sleeker on your desktop. DayJournal has also been improved to import journal entries made on Blip Journal for iPhone.

Updates To P.S. Notes.

.txt or .md

P.S. Notes now has an option to work with .md files as opposed to .txt files. You can work with one or the other at any given time.

Write Mode

There’s also a new Write Mode you can toggle from the settings menu or by hitting Ctrl-w. In Write Mode, the notes list will hide and the text will perfectly align itself so you can focus on writing. Take a look:

The width of your text is perfectly preserved when switching in and out of Write Mode. Try making the notes list wider or the window larger before going into Write Mode to find the best setup for you. P.S. Notes remembers how you like it the next time you open it. Try it out now by installing from the PPA!

Add more details to your todo.txt tasks – Update to DayTasks

An update to DayTasks now supports having line breaks in tasks. You can add all the details you want to any of your tasks and DayTasks makes it easy. Behind the scenes it saves your tasks in one line in the todo.txt file so it will always be compatible when using your todo.txt file from another app or device.

You can use Shift+Enter to add a line break to a task, or try out the Easy Line Breaks option to allow line breaks naturally when editing a task with just hitting Enter. If you turn this on, use Shift+Enter or Ctrl+Enter to save or update a task.

You can try out this update from the beta versions in the PPA now. See details on how to install on the DayTasks page.

DayTasks Is Official

DayTasks is a simple todo.txt-compatible app for Ubuntu. And it’s now good enough for everyday use. It lets you easily manage adding new tasks, removing tasks, marking tasks complete, archiving completed tasks to your done.txt file, and even filtering and searching through tasks in a simple way.

Not gonna lie, this is the todo.txt app for Ubuntu that I’ve been looking for. It is basic, but simple and effective. Try it today with the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thejambi/thejambi
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install daytasks

Or download the .deb files from the package details page on Launchpad.

Feel free to leave any helpful comments or suggestions in the comments.

Try DayTasks beta for Ubuntu

The first beta version of DayTasks is available. It even comes with a beta icon (you’ll see!). There’s really nothing to this at the moment. It simply lists your tasks as it should, and if you double click on one, you can edit it. Hit enter to save it. But more is on the way!

To install it in Ubuntu 12.10, run the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thejambi/thejambi
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install daytasks

Or download the .deb files from the package details page.
