    So I updated Astrid from version 2 to 3 and realize it was a big mistake. They took away a bunch of options and now require a RTM account. Is there any way to rollback an app? I searched around and can't find the old version anywhere.

    On a side note I have noticed a very disheartening trend for Android software developers. They release an app and market it as free. They wait until enough people download it and build a strong user base. Then "update" the software which removes features unless you pay for the full version. This is just poor PR in my opinion.

    Actually they posted about that on their site. TL;DR version - nothing is gone and they apologize for the less than pc handling of it all.

    Goal deadlines are still missing. The addition of alarms as an add-on seems to be their approach to addressing this, but my latest one, scheduled for about 2 hours ago didn't go off. It wouldn't surprise me if other things that I don't use (and wouldn't notice) are also missing.

    Additionally, the UI is disjointed, with paid features appearing in another tab, when they should logically appear elsewhere in the UI.

    I'm really trying to adjust to the new version, and as long as the add-ons are free (through August?) I'll probably continue to give them a chance to win me over. But once the add-ons go back to being paid, I'll likely revert to version 2 - not because I'm cheap, but because I'm not going to pay for a product that's not as good as the free version.

    That's one of the reasons I'm using a backup app (on a rooted phone): to be able to easily downgrade after an unsatisfactory upgrade. Just a tip...
