2Do: Another daily task manager, with a twist

There has been no shortage of ToDo apps recently. But most of the apps, trying to achieve too less or too little, fail to provide a smooth experience to the end user.
2Do, in this regard focuses on basic offline capabilities to deliver a fast and straightforward personal task management.
Main feature of the UX being a beautiful Swype enabled list access, where user can scroll both vertically and horizontally.
Horizontal swyping gives access to the three list categorised on priority level "Important", "Normal" & "Low"
Multiple entries could be stored in each list, which could be accessed swping vertically.
Each entry could be supplied with a note(optional). Modification time is automatically stored. Checkbox is provided on each entry to quickly toggle entry status.
Clicking on the entry takes user to EDIT page, (long click opens context menu) giving access to all the info and the default Qt text editor. With options to insert present or custom date time footer.
There's an option to mass delete completed entries, which could be found and deleted permanantly in the archieves page

The whole UI is based on Qt Quick elements thus making it natively fluid and visually elegant.
Future versions will have more features in the entries, and more flexible handling options. Online sync is also being looked in to.

All feedback and support will be hugely appreciated.

The app is currently available from Nokia store. 
From here (A free version is also planned)

QCal: The most Beautiful Qt quick calculator ever made for Symbian

Currently Qcal is being submitted to QA in Nokia store for Symbian devices, Both Anna and Belle.
Hope it could be up in Store by Next week.

There will be two versions, One paid, that'd have the minimum price level of Nokia store and one free.
The free version will only lack equation solving with brackets, like 4*(2+2) and the auxiliary number system converter. Though both the versions will get lots of new features in next release

The speciality of Qcal being completely designed in Qt quick components, for those (like me) who love the look and feel of symbian Qt-quick elements. It has been taken care to design the UI in line for day to day usage, also keeping in mind the need for advanced users.
Spacious thumbable buttons have been combined with the Flipping design, for effective screen estate usage. Option of system keyboard has been kept for cut copy paste functions in the default Qt style.

Suggestions and requests are welcome on most-used functions needed in the keyboard, (if any). You can long press the hyperbolic trigonometric functions to access their inverse.
Here's a little trailer:

UPDATE (9th March) :
The app is now available from Nokia Store, along with a new version that supports the cool swype feature as in my 2Do app.
The free version is in QA since 5 days, it will be out soon, maybe in one more day probably.
