    I'd often have issues where somebody asks me about a project and I can't remember what I was supposed to do. That made me use Todoist since it helps me stay organized so I can manage my colleagues more efficiently.

    If writing is your pass-time hobby, even if you find the time after coming home from office work at 6 pm, your mind is too tired to write a thrilling story full of mystery. Todoist will help you block out at least a couple hours for writing each day when you feel fresh.

    When you’re booking multiple gigs, you might find yourself 20 miles across town when you forgot there was a lunch meeting you were supposed to go to in 10 minutes. Keep yourself organized with a color-coded to-do list so you never miss an opportunity.

    Nothing's worse than being 45 minutes into a home repair and realizing that you're missing an essential part or tool after you just made a trip to the store. You can categorize not only all your improvement projects but also make subtasks for every little detail, so you can get things done efficiently.

    Trying to remember to do the 15 different exercises to do at home is hard. Thankfully, Todoist makes it easy to write down your exercised and then set recurring reminders to do your exercises, making your recovery that much faster.

    When you have tasks, goals and calls you need to fulfill in 24 hours, a little help won't hurt, that's what this does for you. Going for the premium option gives you access to productivity charts. If you choose the basic option, you have access to features such as location-based reminders, collaborations and tools for task classification.

    There are many things that go into building a treehouse and one way to organize this is to make a list of them and ensure you have them all. If you have just 1 week to complete it, it could be a good practice to create a plan on how you are going to take on the challenge.

    Trying to remember the 100s of things you need to do in a day can take a lot of energy and focus. Todoist makes it easy to clearly plan out and organize your day, so you can focus on what matters and getting things done.

    @Stefan, thank you for your recommendation. But the recommendation says I shouldn't do what it is that my "ask" is about doing. Todoist is a very fine product but can't really be recommended regarding this "ask". Also, my calendars are available on all my devices.

  • 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.

    Todoist has been great. But what would be great is to not be faced daily with a to do list widget that's incapacitated by a refresh circle. Never was a problem until recently. Now I'm in a spot where I would just leave the widet in its useless state because of how much I just want the widget to show me what I need without a prodding from an opened app. Looks like I'll be trying some other means that has never disappeared on me this whole time.
  • 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!

  • Awesome Program Apr 11, 2021

    By kdchavez
    This is an awesome program & I use it all the time. I don’t have a family, so I’m glad this app doesn’t have all the other stuff other apps have for family schedules & such. I’m also not a big time executive who needs a bunch of other features, keeping track of meetings & clients. I’m a simple personal on disability, who likes to keep track of projects around the house & her shopping list. I also use it for my part-time position I have working at home to keep track of what reports I need to finish. The other added features I love is the ability to use it with my Apple Watch I just won in a contest & the ability to use it with Alexa, which being disabled & having mobility issues, this is a major convenience. The one bad thing, which is why I gave it only 4 stars, is the inability to use some of the features without buying the premium version. Being on disability, once the rent & the rest of the monthly necessities are paid, I don’t even have enough left over to go out to lunch, let alone pay subscription fees. I don’t mind paying one time charges if the program was worth it, such as this one, since I know the time & energy that goes into the development, but those of us who are mostly on limited, fixed income, who also must still work part-time to pay bills, don’t have the money to pay any kind of subscription fees. Anyways, that’s all. Just wish I had access to the other features, so I could really utilize the app to its full potential.

    This app used to be perfect until they started collapsing all the tasks into one notification. This makes it too easy to ignore, severely limiting the usefulness of the app. Edit: No I'm not going to submit a ticket. Do the work yourself or pay me to do it.

    I have been using todoist for several years now. I started off using it as a “brain dump.” It is great because when I have an idea, I can quickly jot it down and I don’t forget it. This used to be a big problem and it was frustrating to not be able to recall something if I got distracted or was unable to write it down (even if it wasn’t important, as I would spend time trying to remember it- usually with no luck!). I like that you can assign a priority to tasks, and I especially like the new feature that allows you to update a reoccurring task to a new date (without changing the frequency that was set before). I think that is my favorite newer feature. Being able to schedule something into the future is also very helpful. I do also use a paper system and Apple Calendar, but find that it is still good to have an electronic system. (Paper is still good for the day-to-day must do things, although I have started relying more on todoist for that too.) I have also started trying not to put to-do’s on my calendar. The nice thing is that I can neglect it some at times, and still keep track of long-term things, but then quickly update it as needed using filters, search terms, or by date.
  • Best I’ve tried (and I’ve tried a lot) May 16, 2020

    By MoonUnit137
    Todoist is full featured and actively developed with many thoughtful surprises, large and small throughout. Over the last ten years I’ve tried many task management apps and methodologies. I most recently tried several of the major ones a few months ago. Todoist is the best I’ve tried. It’s elegant to use if you want to keep it simple and has the capabilities necessary to implement a more rigorous task management system like GTD. This ability to keep it simple and facilitate complexity is important, I think, as it takes a while and some experimentation for a person to settle on a task management methodology that works best for them, often drawing from several different methodologies. Other popular task management apps are more limited, and after using them simply for a while and realizing you want more, the features that would allow you to do more aren’t present and you have to move to another app. This has happened to me a few times and was a waste of time. I wish I’d just gone with Todoist from the start.

    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

    I was so overwhelmed and stressed out at work all the time before I discovered Todoist. Once I started using it, I felt like I could finally be productive. There have been several times where I've started to feel overwhelmed again, and then I realize how I could use Todoist to manage everything. It always works. I love this app, and I don't know how I would function without it. I tell everyone I know about it.

    Unable to sync with Google calendar on Android. Unable to cancel lost $36 bucks in 30 minutes. Had to get pro to set up feature. The mistake I made was not starting with 1 month. Leave and learn. Refund from these people none existent.

  • Removing functionality for its users Apr 29, 2021

    By JJ0185
    We regrettably moved to this app when our beloved Wunderlist was no longer supported. It has been tolerable at best, with ugly interface, non-intuitive design and is clearly meant more for an office like/scheduling mindset and not a day to day list app for groceries, etc which we tried to use it for. For example trying to write “1/2” as in “1/2 a cup” is autocorrected to a date “January 2nd” prompting add to calendar every time...so annoying. Again, we tolerated this app, but today I get an email saying they are GIVING us MORE features from their subscription service, how generous! However, they are REMOVING the ability to make more lists (which they call “Projects”) which is the PRIMARY FEATURE OF A LIST APP! We never wanted or asked for the other features. This app is useless to me now. Will find a replacement, of which there are many! What a shameless way to attempt to squeeze money from the people already using your app. It is truly appalling and you should be ashamed. Instead of being creative and developing new features someone would actually want to pay for you are now putting limits on the people who already using the app and changing the way it functions for them. Gross.

    Latest UI changes are terrible. Big add (+) button in the bottom center is not ergonomically convenient, and the bottom bar is way to thick, taking up too much screen real estate. The "overdue" and other headers now stay persistently at the top, making everything you scroll to appear "overdue" (or other). Too much screen real estate taken up at the top too--half the screen is dead space.The old UI was not fantastic, but still way better than this update. Please just revert. Bad design choices.

    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

  • 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..

    By HomeManager
    Whether you work outside the home, have a home business, or are a stay at home mom or student, this app and a few good systems can transform your productivity. I use a conglomeration of methods that I gleaned from 3 books: Getting Things Done, The 12 Week Year, and Do More Better. Those foundational books combined with this app have tripled my productivity already. I’ve tried several others, from OmniFocus to Cozi to Habit Tracker and more. I manage a home business, am a home school teacher, as well as manage my house. This is the first app that has given me the freedom to use my systems in an effective manner. My stress has reduced as I’ve found an app that lets me dump all of those tasks from my head and place them in an app that I trust to organize them in a manner that keeps me from missing anything. I wish it was a bit more intuitive in applying GTD, but I’ve managed some work arounds for setting up Reviews and other important GTD basics. Give this a try. You wont be sorry.

  • 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 new overhaul of Todoist has made it feel fast, reliable, and easy. Honestly, it’s the best thing to happen to Todoist since they released 1.0. This is now my go-to recommendation for anyone looking for an easy, understandable, and reliable task manager because it can be simple if someone doesn’t want to spend too much time dealing with it, or robust if someone is looking for something to center their entire life around. There are only a couple features missing, like matching system dark mode (so I can choose one of the fun color themes for the header but still have a dark screen), setting projects to always sort by a criteria (so every time I open them I don’t have to click sort by date), and setting a start time for my day (so when the clock rolls over to midnight I don’t suddenly have a red bubble with a giant list of things to do, I should be able to choose the time of day that starts). If these three features were added, I don’t think I could come up with a single complaint. Todoist on iOS really is that close to perfect at this point.

    works for my girl and I. she's a planner and I'm a doer, so it saves us the long beaurocratic meetings about what needs done and instead of TALKING about tasks needing completed, I just DO it, which is more my style.

    I made the switch over to Todoist from TickTick and absolutely love it. It syncs incredibly well with my iPhone, my Apple Watch, and to my Windows computer which I use at home and at work. I love how minimal the UI is, the layout, and how solid everything feels in comparison to other task manager apps out there. Even the community on Reddit, Instagram, and Twitter are incredibly helpful. Literally the only thing stopping me (and many others) from switching, is how we cannot manually arrange tasks in Today. In the current beta, there are sorting options, but I cannot drag and drop a task that doesn’t have a time associated with it in Today’s tasks with one that does. It bounces right back to the bottom. Many others including myself like to layout their tasks manually the night before, in the order they anticipate doing them. But if you try to do this, some tasks bounce back to the bottom of the list which is somewhat annoying. But otherwise, fantastic app! I see why this is the #1 task manager app

    New front end is great - one handed navigation makes total sense. Overall it's a great app with some frustrating points. Integrations are proving to be quite good (Gmail, Home) though needing some smoothing out and easier setup. Saving also can be confusing. Sometimes it is an arrow. Sometimes it's a save button. Entering an alarm is an absurdly elaborate process. Ordering tasks is possible in the app; it's not possible in the web interface, which is a critical issue.

    Can't share in typical fashion. Can't easily flip through attachments. 1. No share menu option on item-level. Android design pattern users expect "Share" item. Share to Google Photos' Share button great example. App MixNote's great Share example: popup "Share by text" or "Share by picture". Your "Add reaction, Copy, Edit, Delete" isn't cutting it. 2. Attachments, ugh. Can't just swipe through item attachments. Have to back out of view, select next photo to view. Yuck. MixNote does right, IMO.

    Todoist has been great. But what would be great is to not be faced daily with a to do list widget that's incapacitated by a refresh circle. Never was a problem until recently. Now I'm in a spot where I would just leave the widet in its useless state because of how much I just want the widget to show me what I need without a prodding from an opened app. Looks like I'll be trying some other means that has never disappeared on me this whole time.

    This app used to be perfect until they started collapsing all the tasks into one notification. This makes it too easy to ignore, severely limiting the usefulness of the app. Edit: No I'm not going to submit a ticket. Do the work yourself or pay me to do it.

    Please make your widgets follow System Dark Theme. UPDATE: Close they have "Dark Dynamic Color" but it still doesn't change depending if the device theme changes to light or dark automatically.

    I don't like that completed tasks disappear. There's a way to show completed tasks in your inbox setting (not your daily setting) but if you want to personalize how your tasks are sorted you cannot also see your completed tasks. So for instance I'd like to see my incomplete tasks in order from soonest due date to latest, and I also want the satisfaction of seeing what tasks I've completed today. It won't let you do both at the same time though.

    Newest update completely renders filters and upcoming useless. Just a white screen. Testing before launching changes obviously didn't happen. Edit: the newest update renders the app functional. However, it is still very glitchy. Upon selecting filters, the view is not updated until you scroll the screen. And filter names are truncated to 2 or 3 letters.

    I wanted to try this as an alternative to Any.do or Microsoft ToDo but it's a joke if a basic function like a reminder is a paid feature.

    Unable to sync with Google calendar on Android. Unable to cancel lost $36 bucks in 30 minutes. Had to get pro to set up feature. The mistake I made was not starting with 1 month. Leave and learn. Refund from these people none existent.
  • Removing functionality for its users Apr 29, 2021

    We regrettably moved to this app when our beloved Wunderlist was no longer supported. It has been tolerable at best, with ugly interface, non-intuitive design and is clearly meant more for an office like/scheduling mindset and not a day to day list app for groceries, etc which we tried to use it for. For example trying to write “1/2” as in “1/2 a cup” is autocorrected to a date “January 2nd” prompting add to calendar every time...so annoying. Again, we tolerated this app, but today I get an email saying they are GIVING us MORE features from their subscription service, how generous! However, they are REMOVING the ability to make more lists (which they call “Projects”) which is the PRIMARY FEATURE OF A LIST APP! We never wanted or asked for the other features. This app is useless to me now. Will find a replacement, of which there are many! What a shameless way to attempt to squeeze money from the people already using your app. It is truly appalling and you should be ashamed. Instead of being creative and developing new features someone would actually want to pay for you are now putting limits on the people who already using the app and changing the way it functions for them. Gross.

    Latest UI changes are terrible. Big add (+) button in the bottom center is not ergonomically convenient, and the bottom bar is way to thick, taking up too much screen real estate. The "overdue" and other headers now stay persistently at the top, making everything you scroll to appear "overdue" (or other). Too much screen real estate taken up at the top too--half the screen is dead space.The old UI was not fantastic, but still way better than this update. Please just revert. Bad design choices.
