Default Astrid warning

If you have Astrid synced to your calendars you should avoid updating. Calendar sync is now a paid option/add on. Fortunately i had the older version archived and was able to switch back.

Luckily I saw this post before updating any apps this morning.

Thanks for the heads up.

@ChiTownJim: There's a note on their appbrain page about what to try if updating caused you to lose some tasks.

From that page:
"Lost tasks on update? try this http://bit.ly/astridrescue"

Just downloaded ANOTHER update. It appears that you can go back to the older versions, and try out the paid features for a while I guess. I did NOT go back to the old version because it works for me as follows:

I use a widget called Agenda Widget, which displays all my calendars as well as Gtasks and Astrid tasks. It works really great with lots of customization. Anyways, by creating a specific date, it shows up on the agenda, which is like being on my calendar. If I want something to show up on my actual calendar, I don't use Astrid.

I agree it was shady to take out free features and charge for them now. Oddly, I can't figure out how to go back to the old version, because I didn't click on the link right away.

All android apps are jumpin on the train..

Shazam, NFL Mobile, Astrid, etc.

I'm sure there will be app inflation too where minimum is 4.99 within 12 months.

Anyone have an over under on that? I'll take you on it.

WTF? Just found this out and I'm disappointed now. I use Pure Calendar Widget and even though there is an option to sync tasks from Astrid, it no longer does so!

What Calendar and Task apps are people going to use instead? GTasks doesn't seem as nice as Astrid.

Like I mentioned in my post, I'm sticking with Astrid and Agenda Widget. I'm keeping Gtasks as well, because it syncs nicely if I need to enter stuff on PC, and it will show up on my Agenda Widget, but I'm using Astrid for entering tasks on my DI.
