Add detail to your tasks, and please welcome Danish

April 7th, 2009 by Demian Turner

We just pushed out a new release this afternoon that lets you add detail to your tasks. This was our most requested feature on UserVoice and in fact opens up the UI in a way that will allow us to add our next few planned features.

For those who hadn’t noticed, our last 3 implemented features were those that got the highest votes on UserVoice.  So keep your feedback coming and let us know how you think we can make Doris the best list manager on the web :-)

To add additional detail to your tasks, simply select the ‘more’ link and enter your extra text in the window that opens.  You can also edit your task name in the dialog.  If there are any problems with this feature please let us know in the comments.

Oh and by the way, we added Danish to the stable of languages supported by Doris.  Thanks to Martin Sigaard for doing the translation work.

Doris iPhone app Sneak Preview

March 23rd, 2009 by Demian Turner

We submitted the final version of our Doris iPhone app to the AppStore on March 18th.  This has been the hottest requested feature over at UserVoice, and has been a lot of fun to develop.  So in response to various comments from our users and twitter, here are some screengrabs to hold you over until you can  pick up your very own version :-)

Rumours have it that there’s at least a 7 day wait period for the app to be reviewed, then we can only hope we pass Apple’s strict requirements on the first go, but chances are it will take several iterations.  Needless to say we’ll announce it here when the app is finally publicly available.

Moving from Get Satisfaction to UserVoice

February 14th, 2009 by Demian Turner


We had a number of complaints, understandably, from users who wanted to leave feedback or suggestions and were being forced to go through a second registration at our Get Satisfaction site.

I have to admit when I selected the service I never imagined it would force users to sign up before accepting any comments, and that anonymous posting was out of the question.

After a lengthy exchange with the folks over at GetSatisfaction it became clear they have no plans to allow anonymous posting.  Duplicate signups go completely against the Doris mantra of simplicity, so I’ve moved our customer support over to UserVoice, which in fact seems easier to use, easier to read, and allows anonymous posts!

All submitted ideas have been moved across, as have the votes for each idea.  So please accept my apology for the slight disruption and I hope you find less friction with UserVoice.
