  • Simply the best so far for professionals with date critical needs Sep 23, 2020

    By Dvlrbbt
    If you’re just looking for an app to help you plan your garage cleaning and family vacation there are better looking and simpler options out there. If you need an app for professional use, where due dates and times are not merely “goals” (yeah I’m looking at you “GTD” method) but are actual real world cannot be missed deadlines, this is the app. If you need an app that allows you to have those dates appear in your calendar (your calendar, not just the app’s upcoming forecast of events) this is your app (the Fantastical 2 way sync is killer). If you prefer not to spend more time trying to figure out how to do things in the app than actually doing them (did anyone say “Omnifocus“) this is the one. Collaboration, ability to easily add notes and attachments on both the project and task level, straightforward interface, relatively easy to learn functions with good web documentation, TEMPLATES (a feature that for some inexplicable reason other apps seem to openly resist adding but is a no-brainer for those who have the same task and deadline structure for multiple projects, like I don’t know pretty much anyone who is in business and/or works with standardized contracts), sub-tasks, multiple reminder options, this one does it right. You will not see the benefit of the forgoing without the premium subscription, but $38 a year is a bargain for the features and functionality you get.

    Im in love with this app! However, being forced to pay for the premium service on my device my husband's device for just notification feels a little bit wrong. I think for something like a to-do list notification should not be a premium feature. There is an amazing amount of functionality in this app and I have been through dozens of different to do it apps over the years and by far this is my favorite. It is so clean, simple, easy to use, and it does recurring todos

  • Best Task Manager I’ve Used to Date Apr 26, 2020

    By Link100
    It’s remarkable to me ToDoist isn’t ranked higher on the productivity charts because it easily eclipses anything that I’ve ever used before. It’s gorgeous (I prefer dark mode, but there are more themes) It integrates great with the GTD methodology (my preference) but whatever your system, it’s robust enough that you should be able to integrate it well. I love what they did with Karma, their gamified point system (but I would like to see this expanded). You can tell that the creators stay up-to-date on best practices and they regularly update a pretty informative blog that is enjoyable for a productivity junky like me. I used it for 24 hours and pretty much decided I NEEDED premium which is easily the best $3 I spend every month. It’s important to distinguish between what this is and is not though. It does not teach you how to be productive. It is not a good place to do high level goal setting, visioning, and planning. It is not a calendar. It also doesn’t focus you on the task at hand. The app is a Task Filing System. It is a utility that will enhance your workflow with those other things. It will work great for anyone who needs to make a to-do list, but those who chose to educate themselves on actual task management theory will get the most out of it. I hope it hits the top of the charts!

    Update: As a big user of sub-projects, I was disappointed to see their usefulness go when they no longer appeared in the main project. However, I have recently been pleased to notice the new "Sections" feature now allows me to replicate that functionality, and being able to display them a board is a nice touch. I also appreciate how the functionality of the Wear OS app has come along when other developers have been dropping watch support.

  • I don’t all to do list, this is by far my favorite Dec 20, 2017

    By MrWinky
    I’ve used every to do list out there. Every complex, GTD, you name it I’ve used it. I’ve used it on every platform from windows, mac , iPad, iPhone. There are couple things that make this one of the best. It’s not perfect, but I’d rather have a good list that is visually intuitive, consistent across all platforms, simplifies complex situations, but still allows for the complexity. More importantly they are very fairly priced, for the incredible amount of features that other to do organization lists attempt and charge more for. Whether it is the desktop, the iPhone or the iPad, their interface is excellent and consistent. It’s very easy To maintain a to do list when one is calm or has few projects. But when I am stressed, and have a lot to put in the lists quickly, ToDoIst make it easy, intuitive, consistent so that I actually want to use the application. In simple terms, this is the first application that as my lists and projects and tasks add up, I don’t feel visually overwhelmed and don’t dread opening the application to see what’s awaiting me..

    Constantly buggy. I've used this app for five years, and they are always pushing bad releases. Right now there is a crash expanding lists, which would have been found with some quick testing. Several years ago I filed a ticket for a big where it jumbles up sublists. Every few months I check in and out still isn't fixed. The web app is not letting you expand sections. The windows app was scrambling the order for months. They must do zero quality control.

    App is not for me. I paid $4.00 for 1 month of Premium service and is still shows I am using the free app. I immediately contacted customer service (twice), and it's been more than 2 weeks into the 1 month I paid for and I still have not received a response from anyone at Todoist. I'm still trying to figure out how to customize this app to suit my needs, but since I don't have the Premium app in order to do that, I will be uninstalling this app.

  • Great if you are willing to use it on your web platform or computer too Oct 6, 2019

    By Nararabbit
    There are too many critical features that are unavailable on the iOS version. You can’t print form the app. That’s right, you can’t print! You also can’t sort your daily to do list by the priority you set (rendering that pointless in my mind), add comments, or several other things in the iOS app. It’s there mainly to check things off, remind you through notifications (which are either toggled on or off - you cannot turn on notifications for *only* high priority tasks for example), and allow you to adjust dates and times. A lot of todoist is great, but I wouldn’t recommend it for someone who plans to use ONLY or MAINLY their phone if they want to take advantage of Todoist’s power. It’s really a supplement, not the best standalone due to its limitations. I hope in the future they’ll give it more support because I do think the software is great overall, I just don’t want to feel tethered to a computer so much.

  • Better than wonderlist, but needs better UI Oct 26, 2017

    By CountryMom27
    I’ve tried multiple to do apps, and Todoist is pretty good, especially since it isn’t owned by Microsoft and it is accessible on my work PC, my iPad, phone, watch, and personal Mac laptop. That said, the UI needs some work. It’s hard to see what is on my plate for the week, or the next few days, because there is no swimlane/kaiban visualization. If there was a way to visually see my to-dos (sizing by expected time, colored by topic - e.g. work, research, home, kids...), I’d be in heaven. Even if it could integrate with a kaiban app that was decent... but alas, I have the choice between listing everything here and not being able to see it, or being able to see everything in another app like Trello and losing the project organization in Todoist. Lastly, we use outlook (which I hate) for work, and the integration with Todoist is really weak, and there is no integration between Outlook for Mac and Todoist whatsoever. Really shameful.

  • Got hacked and customer service is non-existent! Oct 13, 2020

    By Glenn Boulware
    Looking for a new app now, maybe Things 3. App had worked well but after getting hacked and emailing for help and finally going on Twitter, the customer service dept still can’t seem to understand that someone logged into my account and changed an email to some other email account. I had even sent screen shots to help make it as clear as possible. Initial response was asking me if I had wanted to change my premium account to new account and completely ignored my issues of having my account stolen and password and email links reset. I strongly suspect there was a data breach of some sorts and hope to get some resolution and at least my $ back for the premium account I had purchased. As great as the app is, it’s not worth dealing with the security issues, lack of customer service, and much higher cost than that of similar apps that do very similar tasks.

  1. Remove the stress with colors! Use color-coding to easily pinpoint crucial tasks and add a little fun
  2. Adding recurring tasks is super easy! Simply type "every second Thursday" & see notes magically appear on the calendar exactly as you want
  3. The intuitive Drag&Drop feature makes organizing folders & subfolders as easy as turning on your device

    Loving it so far. The absolute high that I get from checking off important tasks on a to-do list is indescribable. Todoist is my white rabbit. But actually it really is great. Feels intuitive. Other than an occasional crash when I move tasks to different sections, causing me to reopen it once again, I really enjoy using it.

  • Just started using this- will give final rating in a few months l: Jun 16, 2020

    By kimandfamily
    A few days ago I downloaded Todoist because 1) the app was recently approved to be installed on my work iPhone issued by my employer and 2) I also need an effective organizational method for personal use. Until I started using Todoist my life was countless Post-Its at my work and home workstations as well as Calendar iPhone Entries/Alerts that had to be manually duplicated between my Work iPhone and Personal iPhone. As a bonus I upgraded my account (it’s created under my personal email) to Premium as a gift to myself cuz my birthday is in a couple of weeks. :-D I already love this app: before I knew I had a lot to juggle but now that I actually SEE the amount of incomplete tasks on my plate it’s a miracle that I haven't dropped more balls than I usually do! I'm already sleeping better because I'm not up in bed half the night staring at the ceiling and worrying that I have forgotten or will forget to do something important. Go ahead and upgrade to premium - a year costs about $34 which is less than most of you who are considering downloading this app spend on BS items in a week- you know this.! Free yourself! - Kim

    This is a really helpful app for personal use. I like just having basic to do lists for each day. I would like a better calendar view though, so I could use it instead of Google calendar. I am trying to build habits and routines, and this app is good for setting recurring tasks.

    I dislike that I must pay to use comments, and I dislike that there is no way to add a description to the task. I understand that in regards to the former that you need to make money, but the latter issue makes it clunky if one has a long and complicated task with resources one must past links to in. But I do appreciate the app and am impressed with how consistently you stay on top of squashing bugs. Keep it up! Can't wait to see kanban implemented!

  • Good, but needs undo feature Apr 11, 2020

    By Ktscopes
    This app is intuitive and has good features. I only have the free version, but I have been happy except for one thing, the importance of which is escalating. Unless I am blind, Todoist has no undo feature. So if I accidentally delete a task I can’t get it back. This has happened to me more than once and the last time my task had a long list of subtasks. All disappeared. Given that the method for deletion is to click the circle to the left of the task, when in other apps a circle in that spot is used for selecting, it seems there ought to be an undo. Otherwise, it’s a great app. Update: The developer contacted me with instructions to use while viewing my project. I don’t have a project, just a simple list, and when I click on the three dot icon at the top right, I do not see “Show completed tasks,” but only “Select tasks.” Update again. The developer contacted me a second time and confirmed that deleting a task can only be done in project view, which was disappointing. But the developer’s commitment to communication is splendid, which counts for a lot in my book.

    The app used to work fine for me until a few months ago I no longer get any notifications. I've fiddled with Android notification settings, app settings, reinstalling, and so on, but nothing worked. I'm able to fire a 'preview' from the app, but it doesn't come in on the time scheduled. Hopefully an isolated issue, but I can't rely on this at all anymore.

    Todoist is great, no questions about it. Well built, nicely designed, regularly updated. I've been a premium user since Wunderlist was on the chopping block. However, I realized I'm paying $36 each year for essentially one feature: task reminders. Additionally, 2 users in 1 household on 1 budget pay 100% more for both to use the app. I think that's ridiculous so I'm out.

    Hi Can you add secondary filter, like currently you provide filter option priority 1, priority 2 etc. When we r using a filtered view like "View all" (normally used in widget) then all task priority 1 (from different projects) gets lined up sequentially. Here if suppose 15 task have Priority 1, 30 have priority 2 then it is difficult to sort. Can you please add secondary priority filter like SP1, SP2, SP3, SP4 etc which we can assign to task and then u know we can see proper sorted view

  • Needs Some Improvement Apr 12, 2018

    By RobWSeattle
    I am a heavy task user. I believe a lot of my success in my career was due to my utilizing task management systems. I was utilizing computer based task systems back in 1994. I love them. I’ve been through all the best in class task management apps. Most recently I used Wunderlist, but wanted to get ahead of the Microsoft mess, and jumped to Todoist. Overall Todoist is amazing. I’m doing things I just dreamed of with my old systems. Custom filters - incredible!! I’m a little frustrated with the iOS app though. Here are a couple items that need to be fixed: 1. The ability to duplicate tasks. A lot of my tasks are kind of repetitive in their setup. I know I can use the Mac app to do this. Why can’t I click duplicate task on iOS? This would be great for me. 2. Sorting. They really need to improve sorting. There really isn’t a good way to do it on iOS. I have a label called “priority”. I will only label a few things (up to 5) with this. I want to manually sort these in order of work priority. When I try, it just goes back to alphabetical. Also, I have a project with multiple recurring items by due date. There is no way to sort this by due date. It’s absolutely worthless to view this project on iOS - it’s such a mess because there is no sorting. Please do some work so there are multiple sort options on iOS.

  • Organized but useless Jul 30, 2018

    By graciezilka
    I like how this app is organized, I can put something aside for the next day and check things off when I’m done and all of the things on my todo list are organized for which day they have to be done by which I really like. They have extra features when you buy premium which I understand, they have to make money somehow, but one of the premium features is to have notifications on the app. I just feel like the point of someone even having a todo list is to not forget what they need to be doing, so notifications to remind me what I need to be doing I feel like are crucial to the app. if anything, it would be the same thing as having a different reminder app to remind myself to go onto this app. It just seems pointless to even have this app in the first place.

  • Good start but missing some key features Feb 9, 2020

    By sunil-25
    Overall the app is good and Robust but don’t think developers are themself using it as their todo Two easy to implement but much needed features are A- Ability to see overdue and due soon tasks at project level - without digging into each project. I know it can be done somewhere by using filters but that doesn’t serve the purpose as it’s not sorted by projects The problem it causes is that you may have projects that you really care about but won’t really know that there are tasks due soon or worse - overdue B- second issue is that there is no way to schedule day because of how the sync with google calendar happens Since tasks with no due times are synced as all day events - moving them to a specific hour means that you have to chance that from a all day to a timed event and then drag them. If there was an option to make it a timed event then it’s just a crick and drag on google calendar and makes it much easy to plan the day Hopefully developers listen and make these quick wins. Will result in a huge productive win for all of us Thanks !

  • Not intuitive; very annoying Sep 27, 2018

    By stillnotfamily
    I have tried this app for about six weeks and have not found any reason for using it. I have gone back to creating lists in my Notes and checking them off as I’d been doing these last 3-4 years. I can never see items done in previous days or even earlier that day. Trying to revise stuff is frustrating and when I try to do relatively basic additional notes, I’m forced to “Go Premium”. If it’s broken or shoddy BEFORE, why would I upgrade? There’s a certain sense of satisfaction, a sense of accomplishment when we can see what we’ve done in comparison to what still needs to be done. Not seeing anything on my To Do List, doesn’t make me feel free from being complete or improve my “Karma”. When we can see things checked off, often one or two of those items remind us of other related or similar things we’d previously forgotten. I still keep getting emails every other day of stuff I’ve checked off four weeks before, while the five or six daily habits “eat healthy”, “read 1 hour” and “walk or bike 3-5 miles”, I wanted to have on my checklist every single day don’t RE-appear. Terrible APP Thanks for nothing.

  • Way too expensive Sep 27, 2018

    By Rhdoekbd
    This app has all the features I wanted except they make you pay thirty dollars A YEAR to get the most essential feature- reminders. Literally 100% of the point of a mobile to-do list app is to get reminders via push notifications, so making this exclusively a premium feature is straight up extortion. I have never paid this much for a one time purchase of an app, much less an annual fee, so I’m not about to start now when I can’t even really test out how much I like the app because it’s most essential feature is withheld. I’d be willing to spend a little less, or pay a one-time fee, or maybe even pay what they’re asking if they allowed a free trial period, but $30 a year to basically just use the app for its intended purpose is insane.

  • False Advertised Sep 23, 2020

    By ThatOneDoodNo1Knew
    I’ve been looking for a task organizer that gives me reminders. This way I don’t miss college schoolwork or my work shifts. I flipped through the pictures on the app and saw everything I’ve been looking for, so I downloaded the app and deleted my older not as good one (so I thought at the time). When I go to transfer all of my reminders and work shifts to this app I realize half of the things I wanted in the app require premium! The App Store page does not have any of this advertised. Also when adding my assignments I found that the app try’s to automate dates and other things so much that it changed what I wrote to the wrong dates/times. I do not recommend this app have become very upset. I am now sulking in my tear soaked car in the college parking lot.
