I saw @Dominik 's dark interface of a to do list and I decided to make a rebound of it and adjust some things to my liking.

Good job, Mark. I like both shots, however the colours on yours makes it much more interesting. Good stuff.
I agree with @Bertie here. Nice work Mark!
really clean mark, love your work. Damn!
Thanks to all of you guys! @Nils Hoenson @Bertie Corrie @Alexander Morgan
Good UI but bad UX. The user doesn't automatically see what the color symbolizes.
What is important and what isn't?
Red is important and blue is less important.
@Dominik Martin Upon opening the App or creating an account, you could get a short tutorial showing what colour is what, ect. That would be cool.
The User wouldn't automatically get it that red is important and blue is less important.
@Bertie Corrie A lot of people delete apps with tutorials.
@Dominik Martin On the side menu, you could have categories of your to-do's by importance.
I kinda agree with both of you guys :)
@Bertie Corrie Who sayed that there is a side menu?
@Dominik Martin Nobody, but it could be implemented to improve the users experience.
@Bertie Corrie No.
@Dominik Martin Why?
@Bertie Corrie Because there are not enough actions for a sidebar.
@Dominik Martin Yes. Filtered to-dos, by colour.
@Bertie Corrie So, you're the head designer of this app?
@Dominik Martin It was a suggestion/idea.
I like it. The colors look nice, and while I don't think the colors work well as priority, but as a way of organizing they would be very effective.
@Dominik Martin Gonna have to disagree here, I don't see how adding a little explanation tutorial would hurt the UX. It takes at least 30 seconds to download most apps, and a user wouldn't just delete it instead of flipping through a small explanation of how the app works.
There is going to have to be a side bar of sorts to show the different lists and categories, as shown by the arrow in the nav bar. A single list to-do app would be removing some core functionality that people expect without really adding anything.
@Bertie Corrie @Dominik Martin @Alex I think the order of the items in the list along with the subtle color hint would be enough to give the user an idea of the importance of each task.
@Calum Patrick No, the issue is blue vs green vs red vs yellow. Color doesn't really indicate importance. It indicates good vs bad.
@Alex That's true, even then the order still is a simple and effective way of indicating importance, but I didn't think of that when I first saw the shot. So yeah, a short tutorial and a sidebar would be the best option in my opinion.
Perhaps the colour could help the user sort their list into categories, they could choose the colour of an item which would correspond with a category, for example, blue could be for work items, red could be for shopping etc. Just an idea, nice work Mark.
