I was very happy to find that Nitro created a todo.txt containing the tasks I added in the application. I like editing a todo.txt manually. However, after doing so (and syncing) it appears that Nitro does not pick up the changes. Is this expected behaviour? Is it impossible to have a workflow incorporating both editing tasks in Nitro and with a text editor in todo.txt?

Nitro? Please explain what it is and where you've got it from. I don't see any package in the official repositories by that name. – gertvdijk Dec 28 '12 at 14:14
@gertvdijk It is available in the Ubuntu Software Centre -- but I think in the Independent repo: – Eduard Grebe Jan 2 '13 at 15:50

I submitted a support request to the developer, and I received the following clarification by email:


It's expected behaviour. We're currently working on mobile apps and the todo.txt was just a thing so you can view it on your phone. Sorry about that.

Thanks, Jono
