    Hey guys, just thought I'd let you all know I just (finally) finished version 40 of iProcrastinate! For all of you who have never used it, it's a cool little app I wrote to help students (or anyone, really) keep track of tasks and sort them by priority!

    New in this version are Saving (woo hoo!), a cool Date Picker (woo hoo x2!), a cooler UI, for those of you who said you were having problems on a 12" PB, and much better archiving of assignments!

    I wanna thank all you guys for your help with coding, suggestions, my webpage, etc. Thanks so much! If you like it, Digg It! :)

    Haha sure does! ;)

    I actually kinda skip around from like 30 to 35 to 40, etc. Never liked upgrading from "1.1" to "1.2". Just didn't have that nice "cool feature" ring to it. :cool:

    Nice work! When I first started working on YummySoup! I origionally wanted to use the descrite NSLevelIndicatorCell as well, but found it horribly slow. I ended up using the concinuus style, but I found some great code from Toxic Software, to solve the problem. Check out their replacement NSLevelIndicator

    Thanks so much :D

    As always, I'm open to criticism/suggestions/comments/ideas, no matter how crazy they might sound. :) All I ask is if you do have ideas, post 'em here rather than through e-mail or PM so everyone else can give their feedback as well!

    Awesome, I'll do my best to use that instead of the default indicator in the next version! BTW, I really like your YummySoup! app, it looks great, are you working on it solo?

    Real quick though, could you post a link or quick hint-like info on how you added that + bar to the bottom of the recipe list? (All the way to the left.) Really does look great, and I like the front row remote idea :)

    Great app, been using it for a while and it truly does come in handy, thank-you :)

    I have digged it.

    Edit: app not 'up' :eek:

    I put originally

    It was meant to be app.

    Besides that is beside the point, great app ;)

    I Can't Figure Out Where The Download Is Based

    Would love to have it. But where is the link to the download?

    Cool app. Heres some stuff that i think would be neat if added.

    • Priority meter goes up depending on the due date.
    • Add time to due date
    • Ability to export data to ical
    • Add a "What is due today" and / or what is due tomorrow / 2 days / 3 days / next week

    Sweet, thanks for the ideas :) Here's what I think:

    • Priority meter goes up depending on the due date - Good idea, but I thought it was best to leave the priority up to the user. :)
    • Add time to due date - Tried that, but then the dueDate column was reeeally wide. Maybe next version will have a preference for it.
    • Ability to export data to iCal - I'm waiting on Leopard for their iCal API, rather than fiddling around with 3rd party ones. :rolleyes:
    • Add a "What is due today" and / or what is due tomorrow / 2 days / 3 days / next week - I really like this one, I'll see what I can do! :D

    Ah, and by the way, I've had a report from one person who, after upgrading to the new version, lost all of his previous assignments and classes. Has anybody else had this problem? Thanks!

    Hi it looks great, I have another suggestion that would really make it amazing. When I was at Uni I was working on my dissertation in Geology and had at least 30 files I was working on before I amalgamated them into one document. it would be good if there was a file section in assignments that would enable you to click on a link to open a file that you have been working on.
