Strike Out Completed, Clear All,
Sorry if any of this is repetitive from others. I did not get a chance to look through everyone else's suggestions yet.
I spent a long time looking for a good checklist app and this appears to be one of the best out there right now, for me, but there are things that bother me about this app that I'm finding hard to get over.
No "clear all" for checklists. That makes reusing checklists annoying because one has to uncheck everything one by one. I am quite surprised that so many developers overlook this simple feature and it has resulted in my rejecting multiple Checklist applications. If this isn't going to be fixed soon (not to rush you guys or anything), I'm probably just going to have to move on to the next one.
Another simple feature that's common in most Checklist apps is the ability to have completed tasks displayed with a "strike through" line. It makes checklists "feel" so much better when items get "struck out", rather than just checked. I believe that, today, a "strike through" is no more difficult to implement than an underline. I might not stop using this app over this issue, but it bothers me that I may have to settle for an app without a "strike through" option. I really like the strike through feature.
Less important than the above two would be the ability to have square checkboxes, instead of circles. I would just prefer to check off boxes, rather than circles. They seem more organized to me and it just feels better to check off boxes rather than circles. It could be an option in the settings to switch between the two.
An option to put the checkboxes on the right side of the screen, where my finger is more often located, would be nice... especially for those of us with the larger phones.
Less important than the other items here, but still something that I would like, would be the ability to break down checklists into sections, with titles, possibly collapsible, each of which could be marked as "done", as a whole, when that section is completed. Kind of like subchecklists, but on the same page, possibly with a colored title bar.
I'd like to be able to group my notes into different folders.
Why is "Notebook" a separate icon section? Why not just put it under Projects, Checklists and Outline? Call it "Notes" or "Memos" or something like that.
There should be a way to minimize the amount of vertical space any entry takes up. I'd like to see as many items on a checklist on my screen as possible and as many checklist names on my screen as possible. The current size isn't that bad, though... after one removes the "show breadcrumbs" option. (I had to delete a suggestion here because I figured out what the breadcrumb option actually did. I didn't know what it meant. I get it now.)
It would be nice if checklists could either have subchecklists or could be grouped without having to do this under projects. For example, I'd like to keep my "shopping lists" all in one folder, but "shopping lists" isn't exactly a "Project". Maybe this is just a naming issue? For now, I guess it will do, but that means that what I really should be doing is placing all of my checklists into a project called "checklists", which then has a subproject called "Shopping", which then has all of the checlists. The only annoyance with that is that there are extra click to do to get to the checklists from the home screen. However, I did find the option to place a shortcut to that Checklist Project on my home screen, which actually reduces the total number of clicks to get to it, so I'm relatively satisfied, overall, concerning this issue.
I find it kind of irritating that I can't sort the order of Projects and Checklists. I can only sort the items within each Checklist. Please fix that. I hope that request doesn't sound harsh. Just saying it the way it makes me feel.
It would be nice to be able to switch between the customized sort that I've set up for myself and a sort that places the completed items appear at the bottom of the Checklist without having to going to settings repeatedly to change the default option of the Checklist. Sometimes I'd like to see the list the way I wrote it and sometimes I'd like to see the list sorted with the completed items at the bottom.
I've been using the white background, despite the fact that it may use up more battery. Thanks for the option!
Anyway, items #1 would probably force me to move on to a different app if it were not implemented soon. Not having that item could, in the long term, make it very difficult for me to use this app. Good work, though.
Also, I just figured out why having the Notebook button at the bottom makes sense..... quick and easy access to the Notebook directly, even when one is using a Checklist. I'd say that you should probably put the Notes in as I said above, but also leave the button at the bottom as well. It makes sense there also.
Anyway, good work, so far! There are plenty of things about this app that I really like and I wouldn't want to give you the impression that I don't like the app, overall. I do.
1. “Clear all” is ready and it will be available in 0.0.79

Point 10. Currently you can sort by Due date and Priority. Why do you say you can't sort Projects and Checklists? Please provide more information.

I'm going to implement some of the suggested features.
