One of the developers of the official Google Tasks was kind enough to let me know the date when canvas will disappear: March 1, 2019. That gave me a little more time to get the first version of GTaskD out, so it’s going to be much more polished than if I had had to push it to production last week.
I’ve been staying up late and getting up early to push ahead on getting that first version out the door and ready for you to use. At this point almost all the functionality of the canvas interface is there, plus some very helpful upgrades, so it’s coming along nicely. I’ve been refining the UI to make it as user-friendly as possible, fixing the remaining bugs, and finalizing keyboard shortcuts for everything so your hands never have to leave your keyboard.
I’ll likely give a handful of people access to the first version early to beta test. If you’d like to be a beta tester, shoot me an email at support (at) gtaskd (dot) com.
