    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.

    Pros: Can add two levels of subtasks to tasks. Four priority levels. Can drag tasks up and down to prioritize them further. Any number of color coded custom labels can be added to each task. Dark theme available. Cons: NO reminders without paying every month which is pretty bad. I understand charging for premium features but reminders on a task manager is one of the most basic features possible. Can't find a way to backup. *Also: stop deleting my reviews...
  • 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!

    This is a great system! I'm pretty disorganized so I'm of the opinion that if it works for me and the mess of my life that exists it must work for everybody. The only thing it needs is an inbuilt monthly calendar. PARTICULARLY for events/appointments. Also while I am aware that reminders are for premium only (and as such are not a factor for losing a star) i am slightly unsure whether or not the reminder works like an alarm system where it will buzz at the time that you have set for the event.
  • 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.

    I don't always write reviews, but when I do, I really love the product. Todoist just send a newsletter that they providing amazing new features to the free version. I took the time to write what I love about their product on the survey, I thought it would be good to share it here as well but apparently 500 signs are the limit and I wrote.. A lot. So I will have it shortened. Todoist made my life a better one. 'It feels like I forgot something', well that's a thought of the past. Thanks guys!
  • 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..

    One of the best personal or business task management apps for mobile or desktop use. Paid version is inexpensive for the value. Extensive integrations through such platforms as IFTTT. Very versatile. Very easy to use. While I regularly evaluate most others on the market, this is among the top five. And for the last 4 months, it's my go-to app for personal and various small businesses with up to five other collaborators. A simple calendar within the app is the only feature missing.
  • 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 thing just keeps getting better and better. These guys are doing great. I loved the google calendar integration and discovered to my delight today that since its inception it has been improved on and I can now add a separate calendar integration per list for those few lists that need it. Sync is instant and oh so helpful. Thanks a lot guys!
  • 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.
  • Recurring task due dates constantly disappear. Feb 23, 2021

    By wundering why
    A persistent problem with this app is that it constantly forgets most of my weekly, recurring due dates and times. You have one job: help me stay on top of my tasks. It has become a task item in itself to constantly re-enter the due date and time for my recurring tasks. I bought the premium version and contacted support about this a month ago. They told me to close the app, logout, clear the cache, etc. I done all of these things and continue do this every single week because Todoist can’t manage recurring tasks. The app also crashes across my platforms and two days ago, over half of my “Today” tasks randomly disappeared (I had to quit and log back in). I’ve reached out once again, but this time I’ve yet to hear back. Also, adding to do items involve a bit more work than other apps I’ve used, so I’m definitely planning to migrate elsewhere if Todoist doesn’t respond to me and troubleshoot. This app is becoming way more trouble than it’s worth.
  • 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.
  • No Family Sharing? False Advertising Apr 26, 2021

    By spedwardzz
    I love the app, but I’m disappointed that Family Sharing doesn’t appear to work? It’s advertised as such, and after paying for the annual subscription, my Apple family can’t benefit from my pro subscription I’m finding out. I mean, is that not false advertising? Right in the store under apps that work with family share subscriptions: Todoist is listed, and it is also shown as an icon for supported features on the app page itself. Please address this, I’m sure I’m not the only one who has realized this. Greatly appreciated and in all honesty, great app! 5 stars once addressed, 1 star for attention hopefully. If this feature does work, please make it intuitive and explain how to enable this. Yes, I’ve gone through all my family sharing and subscription sharing settings. Please don’t ask me to troubleshoot my settings, that isn’t the issue.
  • 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.

    Why we chose Todoist:

    • Best combination of easy to use and powerful features.
    • Seamless user experience — makes you want to return to the app each day.
    • Excellent language parsing (can create recurring tasks by typing “do x every day,” etc.)
    • Good support for complex projects.
    • Many ways to organize and view tasks.
    •  Premium upgrade for $3.99/mo or $35.99/year. While this sounds a bit steep, it is comparable to similar apps like Remember the Milk and Any.do.
    • You want reminders of upcoming tasks. The app offers phone, email, or location-based reminders.
    • You want to make time-saving templates for repeat projects.
    • You want more options for sorting and organizing your tasks -- labels, filters, and themes help you easily visualize and prioritize all your tasks.
    • You just need a simple (but still powerful) to-do list app that you enjoy checking in with on a daily basis.

    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

  • 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.

    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.

    It has a bit more complexity than a simple todo list and feels more natural to use. I really like it. I just read eat that frog and i'm using my todoist to make plans and stuff. Plus you can make it pink or whatever colour you like and check on your activity log for a sense of satisfaction. The pro version is a tad expensive but it's important so you just have to put up with that. The free version isn't bad though.

    Great ux/ui, super easy to put a new task, and get your day organized. Another cool thing is that you can connect all your devices and also integrate your Google calendar. Also love the little hiden shortcuts in the web version. Keep up the good work and if you need more feedback would be happy to share 😉

    This is a great system! I'm pretty disorganized so I'm of the opinion that if it works for me and the mess of my life that exists it must work for everybody. The only thing it needs is an inbuilt monthly calendar. PARTICULARLY for events/appointments. Also while I am aware that reminders are for premium only (and as such are not a factor for losing a star) i am slightly unsure whether or not the reminder works like an alarm system where it will buzz at the time that you have set for the event.
  • 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.
  • 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

    EDIT2: I have talked with support and it seemed I had the wrong Windows version (some legacy win app). Now I have the correct version and I don't feel any lag. BUT!! The new version has a downside. When you open a task, it covers almost all the tasks in your list, so you can't check info between tasks. You need to close it and then look at the list... VERY unproductive move. I hope they will consider to move the task details to the right pane as it was before on Windows. EDIT: The app's gone bad. I've been using it for over a year and it has become MEGA sluggish. Keeps syncing longer and longer after every tiny edit, I'm just waiting a lot. I will be cancelling my sub when I find a proper replacement. OLD: The best task system I have encountered. I have been searching for a system, that I would consistently use everyday and this is it. One refrain - to use this properly as everyday task system, you need the paid version. The free one is just a tease.
  • 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.

    Truly my favorite to-do list app I've ever tried. My one small quibble is that it always has trouble accepting multiple keywords, for example if it's Monday and I need to set up an items that is weekly on Tuesdays, I can't just type "Tuesday weekly" but have to go tinker around in the settings. I'd also like more customization over the look, with fonts and colors.
  • Finally almost perfect Oct 24, 2019

    By CoreyIn140
    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.

    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

    Nice and simple. Works and synchronises well having had nightmare issue with Apple reminders. Thanks also to todoist team’s response to original review showing me how to view completed tasks! (It’s not obvious without the link as when you try to search completed tasks you get a pop up saying this only available in Pro so may be an idea to make the pop up more informative) Anyway I love the app!
  • Almost Perfect Oct 11, 2020

    By bigbossfan
    I am very task-focused so I have tried all the different to-do and project management apps looking for the perfect one. I keep finding myself coming back to Todoist. I really like the simplicity of setting up a project or a task and the great syncing capability across all of my devices. The fact that I can assign a task to another family member is also a plus. Also, having a web app allows me to use it at work as well. My only complaint with the app is that, when you finalize a repeating task after midnight, it does not show up the following day. Instead, completion of the overdue task is treated as completion on the current day. This is a major pain as I work late and often complete daily tasks after midnight. There should be an option to change this behavior by the user. Other than that, this is a great app and one I use every day. If the developer would just fix this one thing, I’ll never feel the need to stray again.

    Pros: Can add two levels of subtasks to tasks. Four priority levels. Can drag tasks up and down to prioritize them further. Any number of color coded custom labels can be added to each task. Dark theme available. Cons: NO reminders without paying every month which is pretty bad. I understand charging for premium features but reminders on a task manager is one of the most basic features possible. Can't find a way to backup. *Also: stop deleting my reviews...

    After trying multiple to do list apps I found this one to best suit my needs. Its simple and effective. Unfortunately, it is rediculously buggy when syncing with google chalenders. While Todoist claims 2-way syncing, after multiple attempts my tasks kept getting deleted on Todoist and all of my chalender events on google were also deleted. I now have to waste a couple hours manually re-entering all of my google chalender events and I HOPE I don't miss an important appointment.
  • 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.
  • Great service that's annoying Dec 2, 2020

    By jason a. grafft
    Todoist's platform provides a helpful core service. The interface for entering, annotating, segmenting, tracking, and updating task items is consistent across platforms and well-designed. Todoist also seems to think you'll get more done if the app is on fire. Default notification settings are projectile vomit "YOU HAVE A TASK DUE!! YOU'RE HEMORRHAGING KARMA NOT DOING WHAT THIS LIST SAYS YOU SHOULD BE ****RIGHT NOW****." You'll get emails, multiple alerts on all your platforms, and lose points because you were grocery shopping when the monthly reminder to take the garbage becomes DUE, RIGHT NOW—KARMA!!!!!!!! Yes, you can disable these but they have a persistently suspicious habit of resetting themselves periodically. I need an application platform, not Todoist's philosophy on my task tracking preferences.
  • Premium subscription required for basic features Sep 12, 2018

    By Jay Cagey
    I don’t have a problem with subscriptions for premium features, like customizing labels and attaching files, etc. But Todoist requires a subscription for really basic task management features, like adding a note to a task or setting a reminder. That is ridiculous. The app looks nice and seems to be well designed, but I haven’t been able to use it much. I want to be sure I’ll really use this app before spending $29. That means migrating my tasks from Toodledo and seeing how Todoist works for a week or two. But it’s so crippled it’s practically unusable. So I’ll stick with Toodledo (for which I’ve had a Gold subscription for several years — I’m just unhappy with how it handles sub tasks in the iOS app).
  • Good basic app but missing some key features Oct 22, 2018

    By ATXDavidG
    This is a pretty good app and I did love that it has decent IFTT integration. I was trying to use it as my single to do list to manage multiple work projects with coworkers, but found that the features across platforms are not consistent. The deal killer was that there is absolutely no way to sort tasks by any mechanism on iOS. A little research shows that this was a feature that was requested over a year ago. When I contacted support, they indicated that this was under consideration. (Really, sorting in a to-do application is “under consideration” for over a year?). I went searching for better options and found TickTick. I highly recommend TickTick app over Todoist. Your mileage may vary.
  • Serious problem for free users Mar 3, 2020

    By Brendon Janku
    I really like this app, i really do. But oh my god theres such a problem with it. How can i be reminded of something if I can’t even get a notification for it? I get that the app need some monetization but you can’t just take away a key feature of a “reminder”. If it were for that I’d just use the default reminder app or any other reminder app that has a subscription but doesn’t make half the app inaccessible behind the subscription. I really hope this gets removed as a premium feature as not everyone wants to pay for all the extra stuff in the subscription. I just want to get a notification like do I have to pay for that stuff nowadays too?
  • 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.
  • 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 !
  • Recurring task due dates constantly disappear. Feb 23, 2021

    By wundering why
    A persistent problem with this app is that it constantly forgets most of my weekly, recurring due dates and times. You have one job: help me stay on top of my tasks. It has become a task item in itself to constantly re-enter the due date and time for my recurring tasks. I bought the premium version and contacted support about this a month ago. They told me to close the app, logout, clear the cache, etc. I done all of these things and continue do this every single week because Todoist can’t manage recurring tasks. The app also crashes across my platforms and two days ago, over half of my “Today” tasks randomly disappeared (I had to quit and log back in). I’ve reached out once again, but this time I’ve yet to hear back. Also, adding to do items involve a bit more work than other apps I’ve used, so I’m definitely planning to migrate elsewhere if Todoist doesn’t respond to me and troubleshoot. This app is becoming way more trouble than it’s worth.
  • 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.
  • No Family Sharing? False Advertising Apr 26, 2021

    By spedwardzz
    I love the app, but I’m disappointed that Family Sharing doesn’t appear to work? It’s advertised as such, and after paying for the annual subscription, my Apple family can’t benefit from my pro subscription I’m finding out. I mean, is that not false advertising? Right in the store under apps that work with family share subscriptions: Todoist is listed, and it is also shown as an icon for supported features on the app page itself. Please address this, I’m sure I’m not the only one who has realized this. Greatly appreciated and in all honesty, great app! 5 stars once addressed, 1 star for attention hopefully. If this feature does work, please make it intuitive and explain how to enable this. Yes, I’ve gone through all my family sharing and subscription sharing settings. Please don’t ask me to troubleshoot my settings, that isn’t the issue.
  • 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.
