Tasks is free and open-source software that does not display advertisements or sell your personal information. In order to support development some features require a subscription

Google Play subscriptions come with a 7-day free trial. You can upgrade, downgrade, or cancel your subscription at any time

Synchronization with Tasks.org#

In order to synchronize your data with Tasks.org's synchronization service, as well as unlock all in-app purchases, you must maintain one of the following:

Choose your own subscription price#

Tasks also offers the option of choosing your own subscription price. You can unlock all in-app features for as little as $0.99/year, however you will not have access to the Tasks.org synchronization service

One-time purchases#

I know you hate subscriptions. I don't like them either.

Mobile apps must be maintained and supported forever, and one-time purchases are not an effective method of funding development¹. When one-time sales dry up then developers abandon the app. Subscriptions give them an incentive to keep you happy.

Tasks does not offer a one-time purchase option, however there is a "hack" to unlock the app for many years:

  1. Tap on ☰ > Help & feedback
  2. Tap on Upgrade to pro > More options, and choose a price. Every $1 will unlock the app for approximately one year, i.e. $4.99 ≈ 5 years, $9.99 ≈ 10 years, $24.99 ≈ 25 years
    • Note: You must wait until your trial period ends and your account is charged before continuing with step 3
  3. Tap on Modify subscription > More options and choose $0.99/year. Google will apply your existing balance towards the new subscription. The Google Play purchase pop-up will confirm your new expiration date
  4. Feel free to cancel your new subscription so that it does not auto-renew

¹ I'm making a broad generalization, but my Play Store purchase history is littered with one-time purchases that were abandoned by their developers years ago

F-Droid#

F-Droid users do not require a subscription to unlock all in-app features. Donations are highly appreciated!

F-Droid users who wish to synchronize their data with Tasks.org's synchronization service require a GitHub sponsorship or Google Play subscription.

To use a Google Play subscription with the F-Droid release:

  1. Install Tasks.org's Google Play release
  2. Launch Tasks, tap on ☰ > Settings > Tasks.org > Sign in with Google, and purchase a subscription
  3. Uninstall the Google Play release and install the F-Droid release
  4. Tap on ☰ > Settings > Tasks.org > Sign in with Google
