Storage and Synchronisation

To-do lists are stored in the Todo.txt format. This simplifies synchronization with mobile devices and makes it possible to edit tasks using other Todo.txt front-ends (e.g. the official apps for Android or iOS or the alternative Android client Simpletask). A comprehensive tutorial about setting up Go For It! with Simpletask can be found here.

If you already use Todo.txt, beware of the fact, that Go For It! automatically archives completed tasks to the done list!

Download and Installation

GNU/Linux Packages

elementary OS

Get it on AppCenter

Ubuntu

I maintain a Launchpad PPA which can be used to acquire .deb packages. On Ubuntu (+ derivates) it is recommended to add the PPA for automatic updates:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:go-for-it-team/go-for-it-daily && sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install go-for-it

Arch Linux

Build it with makepkg or use your favorite aur helper.

Flatpak

Flatpak packages support multiple distributions and are sandboxed.

Stable releases are hosted on Flathub:

flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo
flatpak install flathub de.manuel_kehl.go-for-it

The Windows version is available for download here.

A macOS Version may follow in the future.
