Widget Updating Question

Would it be possible to get the widgets to update more real time?

It looks like in my research that this is something that can be requested from Apple and both the Mini Notes widget that I've been using this week as well as the poorly designed iOS Reminders widgets update immediately after I've opened the app through the widget to make the change. It's been 10 minutes with my trial of the GoodTask widget and it still hasn't refreshed.

GoodTask definitely is my preferred widget and app, but the slow refresh makes it impractical for the use I need it for. Thanks for taking this into consideration and for this great app!

Thanks for the feedback. When you open the app and close it, widget should be refreshed.

If you change the data on other app or other device, it may need Background App Refresh to run.

Unfortunately Background App Refresh time is managed by iOS and can’t be set from other apps.

If you can share details about your usage, I’ll take another look.


Thanks so much! I emailed you a quick video in case I’m doing something incorrect.
