    This would be great, also a simple widget to add something to a predetermined list for quick capture -- kind of like how the Clip to Workflowy extension works.

    Being able to pin the contents of a node, even just the top level contents, to my phone's home screen would be incredibly valuable.

    -Pin a node in a widget

    -That node's top level children are visible in the widget

    -Clicking a child in the widget opens the app at that node

    These features would legitimately make the difference between this being a very useful app and it being a full on replacement for onenote, which I have been using as my primary not taker for years.

    A widget is a very good idea

    Yes please! A widget is the only option that I'm missing.

    +1 for widgets or any kind of quick add features for iOS and Android

    Like everyone else said, a widget for seamless capture would be a game changer. It's the best list-making and organizational app, but not having the function to quickly add makes it so much less useful in capturing ideas, and it's the only reason I've left workflowy on several occasions.

    The widget could literally just add the idea to a predetermined list (EG: my "inbox" list) without opening the app and navigating. Other features, such as being able to have a list constantly visible on homescreen or a quick bar to add thoughts to three pre-selected lists could be helpful, but the option to quick capture to at least one particular list would increase this app's usefulness 100%.

    +1. would love a widget for both quick add, as well as for opening to a particular node, e.g. my todos node for a particular project node. Biggest missing feature (and I'm a paying user!) that would get my daily use.

    Is there any news about this feature?

    I would find the possibility to display a bookmarked list (a saved search) very useful. A compact view like that in "quick dynalist" would be quite helpful.

    None as of yet. Sorry! We need to build 2FA and color and a few other things... and we are also hiring new team members to develop at a faster rate :-)

    The ability to quickly add items on the go is very dearly missed. NB, a well-meaning attempt to fill this gap was shot down by WF staff themselves.. https://github.com/rmnoon/WorkflowyList/issues/3#issuecomment-493828573

    Hi Filip,

    Are you referring to this?:

    I got a Play Store copyright takedown from the Workflowy people because of the name and the icon which is the reason I had to pull the app itself.

    It doesn't say what the name was and what the icon looked like... and we're certainly not into shooting down folk who want to fill in any gap. There are many 3rd-party WorkFlowy extensions and even a coupe of apps that people have and are developing. We welcomed/ welcome these. 

    We're wanting to come out with an official API to streamline things for developers... and more specifically, we've been building up our team over the last year plus so that we can get the developing in that we need for widgets and the sort. While it may not be something we're working on immediately, it's certainly on our list. We know it's a necessity.

    Now I'm using another app for current todo lists as a widget on Android Screen. And workflowy for work & information & checklists and other stuff

    It will be perfect if workflowy will have ability to use quick and useful checklists as android widget. Right now It's to hard to open app and go to special Node every time, when I want to add/remove/mark done some point from daily list. 

    You can see the reference - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.stuff.todo
    I want the same for workflowy. Simple todo list from some Node
