  1. Does “Wanna” have the function for importing and exporting tasks? Or, maybe it can upload tasks to a remote server that makes it possible to synchronize later on other PC? I’m looking for a todo-list-program in Linux with an ability of synchronization.

  2. After the I have downloaded and installed this. i spent half an hour yesterday compiling list of tasks to be done. Today I wanted to edit (modify) some of the tasks, and although it has an EDIT function, nothing happens, it is NON-functional, sadly, what a waste of time … You shouldn’t be recommending this until it is properly functional.
