It turns out to be a known issue introduced recently by changes by Google to Google Maps, as I found out very promptly from one of the ever-helpful support ninjas.

Of course I could do mass tagging, but only on a mac, not on an iOS device. Same with Applescript, except that I find Applescript infuriating, and would rather program in just about any other...

Like many people, I sometimes alternate important (flagged) and urgent actions with routine or easy tasks. I don't think there's any good reason I shouldn't be able to slice and dice my data the way...

I'm sorry, I think this is stupid behavior. 90% of the time, I do want the duplicate right behind the original because I'm dealing with a simple project. One could always change it in project view if...

I found years ago that the Mac version of CP (Clown Posse?) Notebook had too many bells and whistles for me. The very negative reviews of the iPad app have scared me off from taking another look. I...

The default project (Miscellaneous) is a hindrance to good workflow, because
it behaves like a second inbox.

I have multiple single-action "projects", one for each folder. When I enter a new...

I just started getting that one too. It happened after I was away from my desktop for almost a week. I just put it in a support request, but I suppose it will be Tuesday before I hear anything.

Speedier sync and start-up times on iPhone 4? Omni Sync helps?
