How can we improve Pocket Informant 5 for iOS?

due date countdown

In task view, give us an option to show the number of days until the due date or a countdown until due; essentially the opposite of # days overdue (instead of the date).
With just the due date showing, I can't tell how many days until the due date unless I flip back to the calendar view and count them. I'd like to know how close it is to the due date for a given task. Thanks!

    When I got asked for available dates i have to go to pocket informant and write down the free dates on a paper note or notepad-ish thing.
    It would be nice to make a kind of datelist from within pocket informant where you can assign a date (part of a day) to the clipboard so you can copy that in whatsapp or email.

    Why can't the start date of a task or project show up in focus view like the due date without having to enable in progress? If I can't see the start date of a task/project, then I won't know how long I have to complete the task or project.

    Great idea but why not take it a step further: How about a way to show what your ideal progress should be by a given date? Something like a thermometer or graphic that shows "by Oct. 3rd, you should be 72% done with this todo item." (Assuming linear progress towards the goal.) I realize this is what a Gantt chart does, but a Gantt chart is overkill for a todo list.

    Additionally, a way to sort Todo items by how far behind the ideal trajectory you are would be nice.

    If implemented, don't just put number of days. Use how many months, weeks, days left 3m 2w 6d as a format
