I would like to clarify that I have two sort related requests that might both fall under this task:
1) When I add an item to a To-Do list or "uncomplete" a completed item, it tends to sort to the top no matter what sort I last chose. I would like it to remember my last sort order and apply it accordingly. I realize this might be tough given that one can also sort manually, but perhaps Sort Manually should be a sort option in the sort order drop down so that the app then knows not to sort at all.
2) I would also like the app to sort the completed items as well as the incomplete items. My wife and I use the app for a grocery list and we just "uncomplete" items that we plan to get on our next trip as we realize that we want or need them. In this way, we also use the list as a reminder to look for things that do not always stand out but that we do not want to run out of (think tp :) ). So, it would be awesome for those items to sort in the same manner as the incomplete items.
This sorting issue is extra frustrating in that the app seems to remember how I wish to sort but it will not apply it to the existing items when additions are made. For instance, if I last sorted alphabetically descending, if I add an item, it throws it to the top of the list. If I then click sort and choose Sort Alphabetically, it does so but sorts ascending; I then have to select Sort Alphabetically again to get it sorted descending as it is a toggle-type selector. In other words, it knows I last clicked Sort Alphabetically but it just did not refresh the sort after adding the item.
