Goodbye ST for webOS

HP closed the doors of the webOS App Catalog and this means also the end of the webOS version of Sorting Thoughts. I look back to over 200 app reviews with 4.5 stars and over 50,000 active users. At this point many thanks for this to all users – I hope the next coming iOS version of Sorting Thoughts will be a good replacement.

If you are still a brave webOS user you can use Preware and the IPK file to install Sorting Thoughts without the App Catalog.

The trouble is, you think you have time.

  • III. App release (Feb 2014)

Preview: ST for iOS

Sorting Thoughts for iOS

So, it’s finally time to announce some news about the upcoming iOS version of Sorting Thoughts.
After a long phase of finding out the best and practical way to realize the sync feature on iOS and Android, I’m now deeply involved in the development of the iOS app. After the introducing of iOS 7 some weeks ago, I changed my plans a little bit and decided that the app will be used some must-have features of iOS 7. This means also that the app will not support iOS 6 or iOS 5. But iOS 7 works perfectly together with my app concept.

The screenshots below show a first impression of the app. You can see the thought list with tags and trash section on the left side. The screen in the middle shows a standard thought with editable text content. And on the right side, you can see the organization of sub thoughts – in this example three milestone event thoughts.

This features are already done:

  • Handling of multiple thought collections
  • Thought content editor
  • Different thought types: standard, project, task and event thoughts
  • Thought tagging
  • Thought name color marker
  • Create sub thoughts

My Next Milestones (forecast)

  • I. Start app beta tests (Aug 2013)
  • II. Start sync service (Sep 2013)
  • III. App release (Nov 2013)

There’s still a lot to be done. But I hope my forecast will come true. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me.
