IMPORTANT NOTE: Satchel REQUIRES an account on Unfortunately, Backpack is no longer accepting new accounts, so you MUST have an existing account to use the software.

Certain features that people have been requesting (such as Writeboard support, and repeating calendar items) are not supported by the Backpack API. For these, you'll need to convince 37signals to add them. In addition, some have complained about items not updating all the time: we had to strike a balance between update intervals and responsiveness. You can update the current page at any time by double tapping on the "Contents" tab.
