Glitchy
by Alangs1984 on 2019/11/16 17:48
I love using tasks through my outlook on my computer, and was excited when I found they have an app. This app freezes and crashes 90% of the time I use it. Disappointing, but hoping they fix it as it could be very useful.
Sharing does not work
by UB-1002 on 2019/11/16 16:32
It will take long for microsoft to come up at Google or Apple level. I shared my todo list link via text with my friend who has microsoft todo app installed. Nothing happened. Clicking on link opens the todo app but nothing shows up
I love you Microsoft
by The Lyrical Dreamer on 2019/11/16 04:11
Microsoft loves us so much they gave us the app for free, that’s how much Microsoft believes in our success!!!
Very useful app
by Baggybuns on 2019/11/16 01:39
I love that it syncs across all your devices and the flexibility within the app to modify and move around task and due dates is very nice!!!!
Needs to have a notification tag icon
by bayybdj on 2019/11/16 00:11
Missing a notification icon. Otherwise works well with outlook.
Simple and efficient
by Ttkvg123 on 2019/11/13 20:08
Helps me categorize and keep track of my tasks with simple but elegant UI.
Amazing Productivity tool
by DKing8x on 2019/11/12 18:24
Earlier I was one note /Wunderlist to keep track of ToDo. This tool is amazing and beats almost every tool. 5 star experience
Finally!
by Duke578 on 2019/11/12 16:15
I’ve been waiting for this from MS for a long time as Outlook has not offered an adequate task manager. To Do is an excellent improvement. It is just taking me a bit to wrap my head around how to use the various functions to fit my needs. I wish the help provided a bit more examples of how to setup and use the tool. But I’ll get and appreciate MS helping out with this tool. I’d like to see a desktop version and/or better integration with Outlook. But the 365 version of TD is good for now!
Helps
by Nicky385543052 on 2019/11/12 15:38
Great
Missing export function
by SmolaT on 2019/11/12 05:38
Unfortunately when i moved from Wunderlist I realized it is missing any kind of tasks export, printing, sharing (outside app) which makes it unusable for me.
Deletes my notes!
by ShockTherapii on 2019/11/12 03:03
I loved this app at first. Every once in a while my text would "undo" and a line would disappear, but the past two days I've had huge chunks of notes disappear. What good is a notes app if it deletes your notes?!
Almost...
by Llamas say Myeh! on 2019/11/12 00:50
Microsoft To Do is almost great for iOS. It needs better repeats (last day of the month, first workday, last workday, etc. for corporate use. Apple Watch and a widget would help. The developers should look at Things 3's organization within tasks. Excellent progress...almost there!
Overall solid
by FMD31 on 2019/11/12 00:30
Happy with the app. Came over as a former Wunderlist user. Would love ability to toggle between work/personal accounts on the iOS app. Would be a great feature.
Good start
by Ericwanger on 2019/11/11 19:47
Good start. Wish it was a bit closer to the full feature set of outlook-pc and wunderlist, but they're making progress. We are exchange users and I make heavy use of outlook's ability to flag a contact (not an email) for followup. I will become loyal to whatever app makes it easiest flag contacts (not emails) for followup without having to buy a crm system (and dupe your comtact list)
Best Ever
by Daddapook on 2019/11/11 17:05
I've used digital to do lists as long as they have been around and used many. I've used Microsoft To Do since it's been out and I think it's the best ever made. Not too much, not too little. Does everything I can imagine that I need it to do. Keep up the great work, Microsoft.
List sharing doesn’t work well
by connsbronz on 2019/11/10 21:01
Says list unavailable all the time
Poor Wunderlist Replacement
by Sluggo103 on 2019/11/10 04:52
This thing is much less useful and user friendly than Wunderlist. Just 2 examples are new items appear at the bottom rather than top of list, and completed items, when displayed, show up randomly throughout the list rather than grouped together. It’s as if your programmers just threw it together with little thought as to how people actually use these lists. It’s obvious they haven’t tried to use this thing themselves. They should have studied Wunderlist a little closer and tried to duplicate and improve on its functionality rather than wandering off aimlessly on their own. Needs a total remake.
Great tool for everyday
by rockyinnc on 2019/11/09 12:08
I’ve been using this app now for two years. It’s a great tool to set up simple reminders to large lists of to-do’s. What is great is the cross platform access from iOS to Win10.
Combine ToDo App with Outlook ToDo
by Combine ToDo on 2019/11/08 01:04
Is there a way to combine the ToDo tasks in the ToDo app with Outlooks ToDo?
It doesn’t support widget
by Voldemar88 on 2019/11/06 21:44
System offered me transfer all my tasks from Wunderlist to “To do”. And if I used to able to view quick all my tasks for today through the widget Wunderlist, and also manage it, here I have to go to the app every time. Supporting Widget is “must have” today for this type app.
Lacking.
by air_e_anna on 2019/11/06 17:52
There’s a lot missing from this app. My biggest complaint is that the share feature doesn’t work. As a wedding designer, I create check lists for my brides. As of right now there’s no way to get these lists to them. I was hoping Microsoft would deliver everything (at least most of) everything I wanted. But sadly this app falls short.
Widget
by Flyaway117 on 2019/11/06 15:49
I completely fall in love with the app. Wish you could make a widget for it so that I can take a quick glance at all the tasks needed to be done for the day.
Great, but My Day isn’t practical
by Daka Montenegro on 2019/11/06 13:15
It’s one of the best to-do apps but the main function ‘My Day’ isn’t functional if at the end of a working day you want to plan your tasks for tomorrow, as the My Day list gets deleted every midnight. I see so many people have this issue, if solved, this app can become the best one.
Love This Program
by Sunfellow on 2019/11/06 03:58
I've used all kinds of task managers. This is my favorite. I love how clean, versatile and stable it is. I love that it syncs across multiple devices -- my desktop, laptop, iPad, and iPhone. Whatever changes I make are populated across all my connected devices instantly. I also love that Microsoft recently came out with a desktop version of the app. For me, it has replaced Evernote, Wunderlist, Notes, Antnotes, and other sticky programs. I highly recommend it.
No app notification badges

Doesn’t make any sense of not having the basic fundamental functionality and it’s been a long time!

One of the best to-do apps

Todo disappears
by iArivu on 2019/11/04 22:27
Have no idea why the todo items are disappearing. Disappointed ! came from Wunderlist
The My Day doesn’t auto-populate
by Mac Since 1985 on 2019/11/04 15:35
What spoils a good app is that, if you have designated an event as daily or for a given day, it will not appear in the “smart list” My Day automatically. You have to move the event (all of them) yourself—every day in the case of daily events. This is an infuriating chore. It sours every morning, like clockwork. A MS engineer responded to complaints by writing that to see My Day showing all one’s events scheduled for that day would be too overwhelming. How’s that for logic!
Simple easy effective

Simple AND effective!
by Mappster on 2019/11/04 05:43
I love the absence of bells, whistles and other gimmicks that do more to distract than help you stay focused. It has just enough customization to make it personal without overwhelming you with choice. Well done, Microsoft. I’m a fan.

Logging off and not logging again
by Faiz0019 on 2019/11/03 15:33
Initially I was exited to use this app. But in a day the checklist I created disappeared and after that it logged off and not logging back again.
Would be 5 stars if they had a widget
by xEvilOlivEx on 2019/11/02 02:02
I am a long time Wunderlist user and just downloaded it. It's great, but without the widget like Wunderlist has, I'm deleting it and going back to Wunderlist. It's a shame 🙁. Why no widget Microsoft??
Unnecessary complication
by Brownky on 2019/11/02 00:55
So if I want to see what I have planned for today, I have to go into something called “planned” then move those tasks to a different list called “my day?” Really?
Review
by DB MUSIC on 2019/11/02 00:31
I love the features in Wunderlist . this so far does not come close to matching Wunderlist. I hope you will incorporate their features before you discontinue wunderlist.
Formatting
by G-Daddy T on 2019/11/01 14:37
I want to commend Microsoft for finally getting the integration of their multiple tools to work cohesively across various platforms. I noticed when inputting information into the ToDo IOS app or the Outlook desktop application, the spacing and formatting is inconsistent when viewing from the other application. If you start the task within Outlook desktop application and then edit or view the task within ToDo IOS app, the next time you access the task within Outlook desktop application the formatting is gone. This issue also occurs using Outlook on the Web and the Outlook desktop application. Keep up the hard work.
Needs badges
by Graaves on 2019/11/01 12:26
Great app, but I can’t move over until those red badges notifications are implemented. Sometimes I disregard lock screen notifications so I would rely on the badges to remind. Please implement that! I would love to move all my data from the basic reminders to here but can’t do so until badges are implemented.
Typical Microsoft garbage
by Heikelmans on 2019/10/31 12:16
Wunderlist is simple and has always given me what I needed. No fancy bells and whistles but did what I wanted it to do. Then I got suckered into a switch to Microsoft To Do. Don’t waste your time. You have to create a Microsoft account so you can have yet another company mining your personal info and promoting its services to you. I did that, created a password, tried to sign into To Do repeatedly and just got a blank white screen every time. It was a reminder of the constant problems I had when I had a PC. Bye bye Microsoft, going back to my simple Wunderlist.
Needs badges
by Lee Kaine on 2019/10/30 21:26
This would be a five star review for me if it had badges for overdue tasks. That’s the only reason I’m still using the default Reminders app instead of this one.
Bad set up
by nick1232284646 on 2019/10/30 19:52
I had such a difficult time getting this "To Do" to let me recover my Microsoft account. I thought I had it done. I had to confirm the To Do account with email sent to me. There was no link in the email. Only numbers. When I tried to get back into To Do it didn't recognize the whole account of which I had just made a new password. I'm not used to such cheesyness. Adios
Works well but some gaps
by Theprocode10 on 2019/10/30 19:33
I notice that whenever I forget to complete a reminder that is on repeat, it won’t repeat itself. This is kind of a gap for me.
I don’t like having to sign in constantly
by Lima Rodeo on 2019/10/30 18:48
I have used Wunderlist forever and loved it. It was fine, simple, met my needs. They switched over to ‘to do’ and it isn’t any better, just a different color and font. But it makes me sign in every few times I use it and that drives me crazy! It’s supposed to be a productivity app, a time saver, and for whatever reason it keeps rejecting my password so I’ve had to reset it twice now in the 4 days I’ve had the app. Not really saving me time. There’s no banking or sensitive information on this app, and I log in to my phone with a fingerprint, for crying out loud. Why do I have to constantly log in to access my lists? I’ll go back to wunderlist as long as it is available.
Doesn’t fit my needs
by mjdindc on 2019/10/29 13:24
Overall it’s a good app. Unfortunately I need one that allows me to have a time of day that task is due and app doesn’t do that.
Actually liking it more and more
by GDefenbaugh on 2019/10/29 13:15
I used Wunderlist for years and was irritated when MS bought it, certain the app was hosed. But I found it was basically the same. Now I’m starting to use the Tasks feature as I’ve grown tired of the over-intelligence of my GTD app. Sometimes you just want a simple list with a few attributes to eliminate the paper list you make of things to do today.
Disappointed; wish Wunderlist was sticking around
by Lulabyte on 2019/10/28 20:04
I am really disappointed in the fact that this is replace Wunderlist but they’ve yet to include some of the convenient settings that make Wunderlist great. For example, when you add a new item it goes to the bottom of the list and you can’t change that unless you want to lose your manual sorting order by forcing it to sort by creation date. You also can’t star/set priority for something until it’s on the list. In Wunderlist you could do that as you were adding a task. Please, if you’re going to replace Wunderlist at least have the same options.
Great app! But please…
by Liberty53k on 2019/10/28 18:33

Okay app, missing features from Wunderlist make it more difficult to use
by Emik56 on 2019/10/28 18:03
I would like to add tasks to the top of a task list. I could do this with wunderlist and have lost that ability
Crashy
by justinjlin on 2019/10/28 12:55
This app is so buggy compared to Wunderlist. It also adds no value even if it worked. Why did they bother building this? What a waste of engineering resources.
Excellent app to prioritize
by MAC2442 on 2019/10/28 12:45
Excellent
Still barely usable
by Shooter9x19 on 2019/10/28 09:53
Switched back to Wunderlist. Guys, is that really hard to set reminders automatically to the same date as due date as Wunderlist does? I can forgive the lack of other features Wunderlist had, but this one basically forces me to spend twice more time in this crap app.
Sync with outlook on desktop

The My Day list keeps me focused!
by PapaVespa on 2019/10/27 21:02
I really like the My Day list - it makes me think about what I want to accomplish within the day and focus on those tasks. Since the list resets daily, it keeps me coming back and helps me be more productive. I feel this feature is an improvement over Wunderlist.
Microsoft on Fire
by MACANCHE on 2019/10/27 05:34
Recently i have been enjoying Microsoft apps and programs. They have really come a long way. I love the reminders app. The only thing that is missing is a WIDGET! Please add a WIDGET guys! FREAKING ADD A WIDGET GUYS!

by misnonis on 2019/10/26 17:09
The app is really hard to use. Many of the “buttons” are so small they are hard to hit exactly...like dragging. Not sure why it is so hard. Editing is hard. Better than others but hope they try to improve it
So many bugs!
by badshans on 2019/10/25 14:13
I choosed this app beetween wunderlist and to do. But it has many bugs.for example after 3 or 4 minutes when u are editing your plans,thats crush and it closed. The worst thing is i cannot run the app right now and maybe i loose all my plans!
I miss Wunderlist.
by eobk on 2019/10/25 05:56
I’ve had a very frustrating transition from Wunderlist to To Do. Not happy at all with the transition process. I miss Wunderlist & don’t know if I will continue using To Do because of the frustration it has caused me thus far. EoK
Comical
by Ahlbus on 2019/10/24 13:07
I found it comical how you the due dates are defaulting to yesterday, and the “today view” contains nothing unless you add it, today... It’s like the Boom Beach of To Do lists. You gotta keep micromanaging it!
Saved my brain!
by Ldunham1 on 2019/10/24 12:57
I have ADD and ToDo is helping me to: 1- Remember my tasks. 2- I can program my day better. 3- Helps me to not procrastinate. 4- I can access from all my devices. Amazing!! Thank you!!
Impossible to edit notes with links
by JBO-12 on 2019/10/22 22:05
The moment you tap anywhere in a note with links it automatically launches the browser with that link. This makes it extremely difficult to edit these notes on mobile. I end up having to edit them on the desktop which defeats the point of having an app that syncs.
Please add Apple Watch support
by Thyrabit on 2019/10/22 19:42
This is the only app I can use cross platforms and at work; so for me, it’s my best todo app around. The only missing piece is the Apple Watch support.
Needs badge icon
by Texan in the snow on 2019/10/22 02:56
Not sure why this isn’t in the app. I do like the ability to add items through Outlook and the flag option.

Elegant and powerful productivity tool
by UrbanInPhx on 2019/10/19 15:37
Easy list management coupled with powerful features make this a great addition to your life. The ability to capture all the swirling things that need to be done organized by lists but then add just what’s important to a specific day so it isn’t overwhelming is powerful (and comes from Wunderlist which was the basis for this tool). But there are also powerful suggestion capabilities to help you plan your day, sub checklists, scheduled task capabilities etc. Try it out!
Okay
by Ujpesti on 2019/10/19 04:27
When you search for Wunderlist Microsoft tries to steer you to ToDo. ToDo is an okay app. but it’s certainly no Wunderlist.I guess the idea here is to buy out a competitor, improve on your own product and eventually drop Wunderlist. Now, my question is why spend so much money to develop a new app. when you could just keep a good working app? I imagine someday ToDo may become as good as Wunderlist, but the day isn’t here yet. I’m sticking with Wunderlist.
Almost amazing
by Juliebrown22 on 2019/10/19 03:36
Great cloud based app. I love it can go to multiple devices. Editing order of lists is cumbersome but functional. Two settings id like: new items to the top or bottom of the list. IPHONE WIDGET ability. Still a very good app, easy setup syncs from Wunderlist

Issues w Microsoft App Developers
by AB_Preach on 2019/10/17 14:37
I’ve been thinking about transitioning from Apple iCloud based apps to apps that work on all hardware platforms. What I am finding is that iOS has the market cornered on the quality of Apps in its App Store. I’ve also been very turned off by the smaller app developers and their push to subscription based plans and lack. I don’t want a freaking subscription to every app! Plus I find that it’s not really worth it unless the hardware company offers cloud storage, optimized apps and supports them along with its hardware on multiple platforms. App developers have handled the move to iOS 13 poorly. They have been slow to update, switching to subscription models on previously owned apps and only My Lord knows if the app will be updated with the features you want. With companies like Apple, Google and Microsoft you know what you get. I’m afraid of Google because of it privacy policy, but it has solid apps. Apple is apple. Hardware is good, but apps are basic. Microsoft seems to be showing a lot of promise lately, but I think there app developers are poor. I am coming to believe that they intentionally hold back from full iOS integration. If it’s not intentional, then it’s just plan silliness considering their mission and that they no longer have a phone. I’m going to post this on each of the Microsoft apps and hope that it gets someone’s attention. Lol Microsoft Todo: Lacks Share Extension support Can’t email a todo into the app. Isn’t integrated with iOS search which is huge while on the go. Outlook: Took months to get calendar search. Calendar such only works with outlook accounts. (I would move to this app if I could search my calendar) Printing an attachment isn’t always straight forward. I tried to print a word document and had to convert it to pdf. New design is clunky and cluttered. Slow splash page at launch. Phantom updates and fixes. OneNote: Slow splash page at launch. Isn’t integrated with iOS search which is huge while on the go. Just sharing my thoughts. I’m just noticing a lack of consistency across third party apps which keeps me with boring old apple services.
Great application
by maxwoj on 2019/10/17 13:07
The devs react very fast when there's something to fix. Very nice to use and reliable
Could be good ...
by Kid Rock C on 2019/10/16 14:26
... if they let us turn off those highly annoying swipe confirmations. I guess they think that users are too stupid to be allowed to swipe and delete a task without having to confirm that action with a pop-up confirmation window. There’s such a thing as ‘undo’ in iOS, Microsoft, so why don’t you give that a try instead of getting in our way of getting things done. Thanks
Best To-Do List App I have Found
by TheZZman2000 on 2019/10/16 14:17
I would have to say that overall Microsoft To-Do is a fantastic app and definitely the best to-do list app I have used. They make it very easy for someone with an ever growing and changing list of things that need to be done to organize everything in their life. For example: I have my main tasks listed in the default list but I also have a list for each of the jobs I work, and a group with lists for all of my college classes and their assignments. And the best part is you can view everything that needs to be done today, tomorrow, next week, and later from all of those lists all on one page in the “Planned” tab. This app also works really well across multiple platforms by instantly syncing changes. I use it on my iPhone, iPad, and Windows PC. A main feature I would really love to see added for the versions on iOS and iPadOS is the ability to add Microsoft To-Do to your widgets this way you can see and check things off your list all right from your home screen. My biggest complaint is that whenever you add a task from the “Planned” tab it defaults to being due yesterday??? But overall it’s a to-do list app and I think you would have a really difficult time finding a better one out there.
Very good!
by pigstubs on 2019/10/16 12:17
4.5 stars This app is so very close to what I want in a to do list app! I love the ability to add things to the task list as I think of them without cluttering up today’s to do list. I just wish that things I schedule in advance would automatically populate to the My Day list. I’ve read the justification from Microsoft on why this isn’t the way it’s set up, and I get the idea of making reasonable daily lists, but when I schedule something in advance for a specific day, I need to get it done THAT DAY and I would appreciate it if the app helped me remember that automatically.
Amazing and worth it!
by Danyel Shaikh on 2019/10/15 01:47
This is one of the best apps ever as it organizes my life! I love how you can add backgrounds to each reminder list. As a suggestion, can you make a, Apple Watch app?
Can’t share task lists!!!
by 73ElCid on 2019/10/14 22:04
Extremely annoying. Impossible to share task lists with the only other person in the household. We tried many times on iPhone 11 and the link sent via SMS wouldn’t open the app. It takes you to a To Do website and even after following the login instructions, it wouldn’t share the task list.
Still worse than Wunderlist
by Telfire on 2019/10/14 17:48
After years of development from the world’s richest software company, this software is still nowhere near as good as its predecessor which was developed independently by a small team in far less time. Pathetic. Literally pathetic. So sad that this is the state of things.
No Apple Watch support?
by Cb1087 on 2019/10/14 17:47
The only downside here is that there is no Apple Watch support for an otherwise great to-do manager.
Dreading the day they close Wunderlist
by babydubs on 2019/10/14 16:15
This app still adds new tasks to the BOTTOM of the list. How can you expect to force migrate people when the app does the opposite of Wunderlist in such a crucial way?

Strange bug
by $ymbi0t3 on 2019/10/14 06:10
While creating lists, if I am setting a new color to a new lists it occasionally will only change the color of the previous list. Other than this minor bug, it is a fantastic alternative to the stock reminders app. Also needs a version for watchOS

MS To-Do is almost as good as, and in some ways better than, Wunderlist. With a little customizing it has a clean and simple interface that lets you track tasks and move them to “my day” for completion. The ability to easily move the focus to tasks makes MS To-Do a pleasure to use. If it continues to carefully add and adjust features it will remain my choice for To-Do lists.
Microsoft Takes Control

A simple to-do list causes horrendous pop ups in windows 10. Not sure it’s worth the annoyance.
Poor Wunderlist replacement
by IndyFanBoy on 2019/10/12 15:58
Disappointed to learn that my favorite List application. This app is completely broken when it comes to shared lists. Items keep duplicating and won’t stop: This one seems to be geared more toward organization/business use instead of personal use.

Winderlist import
by ItunesAteMyMusic on 2019/10/10 20:00
Upgraded and imported my wonderlist tasks - the creation date of the task did not persist when imported. Very disappointing.
I want to love it!

The idea is perfect. So much opportunity. Too bad it keeps crashing...
A Great Start
by Bob Saget's Thumb on 2019/10/10 04:37
As of writing this review, I can say this app has a lot of potential. In terms of how it functions, it works well and is reliable. However, there are a few items missing that could make this app even better. 1. Add badges as part of the app. 2. Have a widget function for iOS and iPadOS. 3. Make a "smart" feature that auto enters information for to do. For example if I write, "submit paper tomorrow at 8pm," the app should set a due date of tomorrow with an alert at 8pm. Currently, these items have to be entered manually. These items are not a deal breaker, however, they are evidence of a strong app with still a long way to go to be even better.

Missing sharing extension, start dates
by Luhmann on 2019/10/10 03:41
Would be great if it allowed task creation from the iOS share extension like other task managers. And while only a few task managers have start dates as well as due dates, I find this to be an essential feature. Relative reminders would be good for repeating tasks as well (eg: 5 days before due).
Finally a good Task Manager app
by smarisetti on 2019/10/09 11:47
After waiting for Apple Reminders to fix their bugs ,I moved to Microsoft To-Do. To-Do met all my criteria.
Awesome app, needs to support multiple accounts
by Faruh paerhati on 2019/10/09 02:53
I thoroughly enjoy Microsoft Todo and am a heavy user on all platforms (Desktop and Mobile). However, I, like many other users, have a work and personal account (cannot put sensitive tasks/work information on my personal account). This works fine on Desktop, but I cant easily switch between my work and personal accounts on this iOS app. That is the one thing really slowing down my productivity and flow, even though this is a great app. Hence the 4 star review, which will become 5 once the much needed multi-account support comes to iOS
Assigning Tasks
by BERINGER wine on 2019/10/08 22:51
Recently my organization migrated over to Office 365. I use my task manager on my PC a lot assigning tasks to my team of 17 and attaching emails, documents, etc. to assist with the execution of the task. I really need the functionality of what I stated above to occur in this task manager that syncs with my 365 account and is allowed by my IT Department. I want my PC functions for Task Management available to me on my smart devices and I want that for my team that works remotely in retail environments as well. Sincerely, Jeff B
Needs multiple logins
by EmilyinBK on 2019/10/08 16:59
I have an exchange account for work AND a personal outlook account. This app will only let me log in to one account at a time, but I need to see all my tasks in one place. Except for that I love it, but that problem keeps me from using it. I read that it DOES allow multiple logins on Android, so please fix this iOS app!!!
Finally a good to-do app for iOS
by Denbet on 2019/10/08 01:49
I love Apple iOS, but the big gap was a mature to-do list app. Microsoft has done it. Thank you Microsoft.
Login after login
by Hamce on 2019/10/07 21:32
I love this app! It keeps getting new features continuously. The only problem I have is that after every update I have to login in again. Keeps logging out and stuck in a loop until I force close it.
Best To-Do List App I have Found
by TheZZman2000 on 2019/10/16 14:17
I would have to say that overall Microsoft To-Do is a fantastic app and definitely the best to-do list app I have used. They make it very easy for someone with an ever growing and changing list of things that need to be done to organize everything in their life. For example: I have my main tasks listed in the default list but I also have a list for each of the jobs I work, and a group with lists for all of my college classes and their assignments. And the best part is you can view everything that needs to be done today, tomorrow, next week, and later from all of those lists all on one page in the “Planned” tab. This app also works really well across multiple platforms by instantly syncing changes. I use it on my iPhone, iPad, and Windows PC. A main feature I would really love to see added for the versions on iOS and iPadOS is the ability to add Microsoft To-Do to your widgets this way you can see and check things off your list all right from your home screen. My biggest complaint is that whenever you add a task from the “Planned” tab it defaults to being due yesterday??? But overall it’s a to-do list app and I think you would have a really difficult time finding a better one out there.
They always fix it!
by Jj2195 on 2019/10/04 13:07
Recent release (end of Sept 2019) is very buggy with random duplication of tasks and confusion when you try to move a task from the MyDay list. But I have been using this app for a few months before writing the review and have found that the programmers are dedicated and listening. Bugs don’t stick around through the next revision and the revisions are every couple of weeks on average( see version history). Not to mention the new features and improvements they keep introducing. The app is organized and flexible with a good balance of options and ease of use. You can start out very simple if you want, and add in complexity as you get comfortable. I am thrilled with my choice and will stick with them through the growing pains ( many of my apps seem buggy with iOS 13 so I actually blame apple for a poor roll-out) because by now I trust the developers to fix it!
Needs a lot of work
by Isami87 on 2018/05/02 12:44
I am a physician and a scientist who requires a good to-do app to keep everything straight on a daily basis. Wunderlist was really the perfect tool for this, allowing me to organize and share tasks with lab members and clinical colleagues. When I learned it would eventually replace wunderlist, I decided to give To-Do a solid try. I imported all my lists from wunderlist, familiarized myself with all of To-Do’s features, and used it in place of Wunderlist for a good week. Unfortunately, a year after it’s unveiling, To-Do still needs a lot of work. The lack of a way to group related lists and the inability to automatically place tasks that are due today into the “my day” folder are critical deficiencies. Sure you can click the lightbulb in the “my day” folder and select all the upcoming tasks with the help of “suggestions,” but many (like me) cant remember to do that on a daily basis. The point of a to-do app is to make remembering all of your daily tasks unnecessary. I had so many issues with missing things (I literally have a hundred tasks some days) that I had to switch back to Wunderlist within a week. I know that the Microsoft team is working hard on To-Do behind the scenes. I plan to keep checking in and switch to to-do once it truly integrates all the features of wunderlist.
Much Better than the Rest Including Wunderlist!
by Jim NY on 2019/05/09 08:32
ToDo Microsoft I have struggled with this app over the last year always going back to gtasks and Due after giving up on To Do after a few days each time. It is now my main app. I love it. I surprisingly have grown to love the way the My Day disappears every night. It's very fast to repopulate every morning and you can scrutinize the list and just leave out the unnecessary ones. I have tried probably 10 todo apps and I'm kind of surprised that this one is by a good margin the best. However, why start the week on SUNDAY? Why not Monday as the Desktop version. Why not give options/customizing for snooze the way the excellent Due app does? Also, the Reminder later today or tomorrow is lame. Again, they can learn a lot from Due. Why not be customizable or just make it remind me in 1 hour as an option? Anyway, congratulations on some significant improvements!
Perfect for me
by RevRMK on 2019/07/12 13:47
I am one of those people who keep trying different organizational apps and systems. I’ve found this one best meets my needs for on that is not cluttered and great for the day to day lists I make. I love creating a project list of tasks, giving the a date or making a more detailed sub-list, giving it a date or not. The best part is starting each My Day with a clean slate and adding the tasks with recommendations from the app. I love I can set up my day before I leave for work from my iPad then check off the list as I go from the desktop at work. The only thing I would add, or haven’t discovered how to do, is to archive my completed list for future use, especially for an annual work event. I don’t like the look of the long list of completed projects and don’t want to delete them.
Serves its purpose
by Dang Hazelnut on 2019/02/11 23:18
My husband and I have been looking for an app that accommodates to our meal-planning. This one is by far the best due to a simple user interface, convenient checklist, uncomplicated tools, and online account integration. Although what we use is very different than what this app is intended for, it’s exactly what we need. We are removing one star because we find it difficult to retype all the entries for other lists. Having a copy-and-paste feature would be wonderful. Another feature we would like to see is an option to set which page is defaulted when opening the app. Right now, it’s “My Day” and we would like to be able to see the entire list page when we open the app. Lastly, we would love to see an expanded collection of colors and themes. Heck, I would love for it to be completely customizable where we can select photos from our camera roll. Looking forward to what the future updates this app has to offer!
Half-Baked
by Grogboshi on 2018/03/08 02:16
This app and its web counterpart need a lot more work. It would be great if they combined it with Outlook Tasks and Planner into a single task management system, akin to Todoist. The app needs natural language support, a desktop Mac client, tie-ins with Teams to create tasks and projects directly from Teams, and tasks dated for today need to be automatically added to My Day so everything due in a given day is all in one place, rather than looking from list to list. It would also be great if it had a general Inbox to add tasks to as they come to mind and then organize later, like GTD prescribes. List sharing would be another big boost, especially for businesses if it’s linked to Teams, so that projects could be organized through ToDo and tasks managed. Apps like TickTick or Todoist show how powerful task management systems can also be easy to use and good for both individuals and businesses. Hopefully this app will follow in their footsteps and replace the myriad Microsoft task and project management options that currently exist (Outlook Tasks, Planner, To-Do), like Microsoft is doing consolidating Lync, Skype, and Teams.
Steps are headed in the right direction but…
by middlenameray on 2018/04/13 20:26
With the addition of steps/subtasks, we’re definitely getting closer to this app replicating the full functionality Wunderlist (need folders and shared notes support to make it complete). But there’s a weird glitch in the app and the steps keep disappearing/reappearing. Sometimes they show, sometimes they don’t. The first time I reopened the app after creating some steps on one of my to-dos I thought they didn’t take, so I added them again, then they vanished again on another reload, so I added them again. Turns out, when I opened the To-Do web client, the original steps I added and ALL the duplicate entries saved to the cloud like they were supposed to but don’t always populate on screen on the phone. What a productivity nightmare. Add a new step? They all appear again. Rearrange the to-dos? Disappear. If this bug can be squashed I’ll give the app a fourth star. I’ll be screenshotting any to-dos with steps in the meantime so I can be sure I can reference them when I’m on the go.
Over designed
by Unparadise on 2018/06/01 16:35
I like the improvement I have seen in the past few months. I think Todo is heading the right direction. There are a few features such as assign to someone and attach photos to a note that are still missing. And it doesn’t do a good job integrating with other Microsoft services such as Outlook and Flow. But I hope these will be added along the way. One thing I strongly dislike about this app is it’s unnecessary big visual background that takes up 1/3 of the screen. Even though it goes away after scrolling its uneconomical use of limited real estate on the phone makes me hate it. A todo app should focus on what the user tries to accomplish and reduce every possible noise. I love the Things app for its simple design. It’s just so beautiful. You can feel that everything shown on the screen is intentional with a purpose. The original Wunderlist design was also really good for the same reason. Please offer the option to remove the annoying title background. I hate it! Thanks
Missing One Critical Feature!!
by Kaspa7 on 2018/10/02 04:26
I love the simple yet pretty layout of this app, and I love that I can create different categories (work, school, personal) while having a “My Day” area that shows me ALL tasks that I need to complete that day. Beautiful! HOWEVER, any task you put a due date on does NOT automatically show up in My Day once that day arrives! So even if I put a task as “due tomorrow”, once tomorrow comes it will not show up in My Day. So basically every single morning I have to go through my various lists and add tasks manually to My Day. The whole point of having a due date for me is to “set it and forget it”. It’s too exhausting to add each task manually every day. Doesn’t it make sense that if a task is DUE TODAY that it should appear in the MY DAY folder? Drives me crazy!! I also wish it would have a badge app icon showing me how many tasks are on My Day for the day, so I can have a quick glance just from the home screen of how many tasks I still have to complete that day.
Improving, update by update
by cierrabrooke on 2018/12/01 15:41
To-Do has definitely improved from my first download a year ago, but there are still key features that keep me with Wunderlist (app/company was acquired by Microsoft and that team now works on To-Do). Pros of To-Do that have me looking forward to a move from Wunderlist: - Dropped the skeuomorphic design - Has Wunderlist import feature (some reviews say this is still a little buggy) - The font is clean and visually pleasing Features Wunderlist has that To-Do still needs: - Folders and nesting for lists: I prefer to break out different projects and responsibilities within my work list - Option for a scrolling calendar wheel, or the ability to have weeks start on Monday, not Sunday when setting task due dates. I’m fine with the “Pick a date” calendar option, but I would SO prefer the ability to have this calendar have Mondays to start weeks. I’ve been able to do this in Outlook, so I know you can add this feature 😊 - Ability to update profile photo: Currently cannot update the standard avatar - Variety of neutral backgrounds: With To-Do, the background of the “Important” list cannot be altered. For now it’s an uneditable purple space telescope theme. I tried to swap every list to be a plain neutral blue with no cartoon drawings. Some people may love the cartoons, but I need more neutral color options and just want to focus on my to dos, especially the ones I’ve noted are most important!
A simple reminders app is just what most of us need.
by e10. with a lightning port. on 2018/10/14 08:43
I started looking for a reminders app when I realized that the calendar’s “up next” widget contains reminders as well, so I deleted reminders and started looking elsewhere. Most of the reminders apps I’ve seen are either really simple, too complicated, or have complex tasks and just useless stuff locked behind a paywall. Microsoft’s ToDo is not the best app for the job, but it’s at least got the basics down, doesn’t lock it in a paywall, and doesn’t make it super complex. I would still like having location based reminders like on the Apple app, but I’ll forgive it. It still has: Reminders based on time, repeating reminders daily-weekly-monthly-yearly, notes, and color coded reminders groups. Yes, I wish it had location reminders, and that it didn’t force me to have it’s “Tasks” group, but it really is all you need. It’s basic, and that’s good.
Not ready for prime time, far from it
by No ads preferred on 2019/04/10 14:10
The primary fault I have with this app is the lack of ability to schedule tasks. It allows you to assign a due date and will let you set a reminder, but true scheduling of a task is wholly missing. What I mean is that I want to be able that a task is due to be complete by a certain time on a certain date. And then the list of tasks is presented in that order. Here’s what I need to do first today, then what I need to do next, etc. items with a due date but no required due time would be at the end of the list for that day. The reminder field in the app would be used more for telling me when to start a task. A secondary fault is a more robust prioritization. More than just a star or not star rating, it needs to let me say that a task has a high, medium, or low priority. That way, if I have to let a task slip, I’ll know which one. The “Errands” app does this well. I don’t use it because I need a to-do app that will work both on my iPhone and my PC. Next, categorization would be very nice. Thus, I can assign a task to a “Field” category or an “Office” category, depending on where it needs to be done. Then I could filter on the “Field” tasks when I head out the door. This should be a free-form data field so I can make up my own list of categories. But it should be such that I can see all tasks if I want to, not just one category. Finally, integration with Outlook on my PC would be great.
I’ve been searching and I found this
by leonard_ong on 2019/03/06 11:23
I used to use OmniFocus, but the interface overwhelmed me. So many buttons and options just to create a task! As a result, I set out searching for a replacement. I’ve tried Wunderlist, iOS reminders, Todoist and a plethora of other apps, but so far To-Do has been the only one with a simple and elegant interface. Everything is incredibly straightforward and there’s even a platform to vote on new features. It’s comforting to know that our voices are being heard on new features. That being said, the app isn’t perfect either. One of my biggest pet peeves is that I can’t plan My Day in advance. It would be good if I could swipe left and right to review yesterday’s and tomorrow’s tasks respectively. Other than that, this app is the best I’ve seen so far. keep it up Microsoft.
Crisp, Clean, and Easy to use
by ShaneMLK on 2017/09/20 22:26
It’s easy to create, order, and customize my lists just how I want. My lists automatically sync on my Windows 10 App, in any browser, and in my iPhone app just by logging into my Microsoft account on each. My favorite part about the App is that it’s the perfect balance between simple and customizable. Each of my list looks unique and beautiful, without making me make too many decisions. It offers just the right amount of colors, icons, and backgrounds to choose from for my lists without making me overthink anything, so I can focus on getting stuff done without anxiety. If you’re looking for a complicated todo app, look elsewhere.
Off to a great start, but needs maturing.
by TheRamius on 2019/07/10 18:26
Pros: - User friendly for what it offers - Fluid, simple interface. Isn’t confusing to know what you’re doing. - Easy to prioritize tasks - Each task can be broken up into items (very useful for projects and/purchasing) Cons - Minimal navigation ability on completed tasks. Only way to navigate completed tasks is by opening up a list where it’s all dumped into. It may be in chronological order, but it’s difficult to know for sure. This leads me to my second issue... - Completed tasks don’t have a date of completion listed next to it unless you click on the individual task. So if you want to know what you completed in a particular week a couple months ago, you have to keep clicking on items until you find the date of interest. It isn’t clear however in what order the completed tasks are arranged. - As of today there is a bug which keeps you from deleting a repeated task in bulk. I accidentally set a reminder for the next 20 years and it generated tasks for every day for the next 20 years. I couldn’t delete them or remove them from my completed tasks list. I’m sure this would be a relatively simple fix. - If you don’t click something as completed the day it was completed, you cannot go back and edit. It only shows the date you clicked completed.
Repeating Tasks Repeatedly Disappear
by quantumofsolace on 2019/02/12 19:06
In the couple of months I've used the app, I've had to re-enter repeating tasks several (3-4) times. It seems to only affect daily tasks but I'm not 100 on that. At some point after I complete a repeating task, the app doesn't repopulate the task for the next iteration. So if I have a task that says "go to the gym" and I check it as completed, sometimes the task shows up the next day and sometimes it doesn't. I don't know exactly when this happens because it's hard to notice a single missing task. (At least for me –i have about 25 repeating tasks.) I assume there's a bug somewhere but it shouldn't take two months for a major corporation to fix it, especially since this is basic functionality for a task app. I should have known the app would be extra when I had to reimport my tasks from Wunderlist 3 times. That process should have been infinitely easier since Microsoft develops both Wunderlist and To Do. I had intended to transition to To Do but I think I'll stick with Wunderlist for the moment.
A Pinch From the Finish Line
by icuragoose on 2018/01/06 21:39
(There is now iPad support!) I have loved Wunderlist, and Microsoft aims to replace it. The features in To Do are remarkably similar and familiar to Wunderlist users with simplicity and minimalism at its core. With a slimmed-down UI, there's less to distract you and with the flawlessly smooth and responsive controls, you feel like you have a firm grasp on your system. Everything is intuitive and inviting. In addition, I'm from Seattle, so I appreciate the themes. Right now the only things missing for my own workflow is the ability to have folders and sublists. This is my last reservation for using this app and once this is complete (both are planned), I can officially utilize this as a Wunderlist replacement. Once I use this in my workflow, I will be most excited about the "My Day" feature. I can use that in tandem with my office' implementation of Kanban to help me see what I committed to getting done today. I can see this being useful for O365 organizations as well, since it can replace the Outlook tasks, pull assigned tasks from Planner, have inputs with Teams (i.e. Right click a message and select "Create Task") I'm excited to see where this goes as I wait patiently for the product to bake. Until then, three stars is about where it's at as of now--little more than a college student's obligatory first app.
UI is phenomenal - but a couple huge complaints
by millerrh on 2019/09/11 03:26
This redesign is nearly perfect. I love the design so much more than Wunderlist. But it is missing a few key features that make it hard to use for me. 1) There are no notification bubbles that appear when a task is overdue like on Wunderlist. I used this feature all the time for recurring tasks that I want out of my way but to be reminded of when it is time to do them. These overdue tasks should be automatically populated in My Day and you should be notified of them. Or at least have the option to. 2) When viewing tasks in My Day or Important, they are all lumped together. If you have multiple projects, it can get disorienting. I prefer the way Wunderlist did it where you can see tasks grouped by the project/list they came from. Helps to organize these lists that pull from multiple projects better.
VERY Disappointing
by Neal William on 2019/09/26 20:05
I’d consider the MS To-Do programming team second worst to the failed Evernote developers (who made a pretty but ruined product). They don’t take the time to understand what users really want, but do things that are “technically right” but practically idiotic. Most recently they reduced the size of a list header. Why??Users complained about it. Why? Because it used limited phone screen space that could be used to show more tasks. So what did the developers do? They added a huge Add Task input box at the bottom of EVERY list, which takes up even more space than the previous header! Furthermore, the tacky Add Task box doesn’t scroll. It just stays at the bottom taking up room! I wanted to like MS To-Do. It’s got a clean interface and is readable. But “you can’t fix stupid”. I consider interface problems caused by poor programming the worst kind of stupid. They reveal the (lack of) capability of the software development team. Accordingly, I’ve moved my tasks and dumped MS To-Do. For those considering MS To-Do, another stupidity is that you cannot set your tasks for “My Day” the evening before. If you want to do that and start your day with ACTION, deciding what to do the day before, save yourself and use another app. Don’t let MS tell you how you should work. MS purchased Wunderlist as the source for MS To-Do. From what I read Wunderlist was abc A+ 5* app. Looks like MS purchased it to ruin it. I “wunder” how long it will survive
Doesn’t hold a candle to Wunderlist
by snc68 on 2019/03/10 15:26
I have been a happy user of Wunderlist for the last couple of years. It’s an exceptional app for organizing your to do list. There was another reviewer that hit the nail on the head with this. The biggest flaw with this To-Do app is that you cannot organize and categorize your tasks in a given day. Why have smart list if your app won’t organize them by smart list? It doesn’t make sense. In the Wunderlist app you enter tasks, you categorize them and then for any given day all the things that you need to do for the day are grouped in the different categories. it’s a simple concept and shouldn’t be too difficult to enable. For example if you go to the grocery store, you don’t go in with a list that has everything all mixed up on one long list. In order to be efficient, you typically will group things by area in the store. You’ll put all of your vegetables together all of your dairy etc. That way you’re not running around the store in a disorganized fashion and missing things on your list. Same thing with managing your daily tasks. It takes way too many brain cells to try to jumble everything up. They need to be categorized so that your brain doesn’t have to do too much work. Very disappointed in this app and I hope Wunderlist stays around in the ether for a while so I can continue to use it. Will have to find something else because To-Do does not cut it.
Good start but needs a lot of improvements
by Dr.DLL on 2018/06/04 15:17
Since this app was apparently built by Wunderlist developers, I shouldn’t be surprised that there’s sync issues, namely between iOS and desktop website. If I edited items on my phone then checked the list on a desktop browser, not only would it not update on the browser, when I go back to the mobile app, it changes things back to before I made the edits. This app seems to have a hard time telling which edits are the most recent and what to change/not change when syncing. Then there’s the minor but still annoying issues such as the whole list moving up and down too much when you try to re order an item (not sure if it’s a bug or a “feature” but please get rid of it) Some functionality suggestions: It’d be nice if items with due dates of “today” can be/are automatically added to My Day because that’s it seems convoluting to have something due today but not have it in “My Day” Also, it’d be very helpful if there’s a way to quick see items past due. Right now you have to check each and every one of lists to look for things you missed and it can get frustrating and time-consuming Changed to 3 stars because although right now it’s half-baked, I really want this app to work.
Problems with a Large List!
by New Apple Fan on 2017/12/01 04:17
I love where this is headed! I’ve been waiting to get to my Outlook/Exchange Tasks for quite awhile from iOS! The interface looks good and I love being able to change Due Dates on numerous tasks at once, etc. One big problem for those of us who have been using Outlook Tasks for 20+ years and have been using Views in Outlook to hide the fact that we’ve not done a good job of dosing or deleting old Tasks...Put some sort of config that will filter To-Do Tasks to the next month and the trailing month (next 30 days and trailing 30 days would be even better!). Reason being: Current To-Do App was working great until it started becoming unresponsive and then seems to flat out crash once it hits 1799 Tasks! So, it’s unusable for me unless I spend a bunch of time cleaning up my Tasks!!!
Organized life!
by Clarissa N on 2019/03/19 15:55
Love this app for organizing my daily, weekly, and monthly tasks. Super easy to use, streamlined, and minimalist. Not overly complicated at all like other list apps. Plus the checked off sound when checking something off as done is so satisfying! Can also set reminders and alarms. I don’t use this feature that much though, just use as lists to look at to know when I need to do something or go somewhere. I even have lists titled with each month so I know ahead of time what I’m planning to get done in that month. Small ways to stay organized like that are actually really helpful. Been using this app for years!
Useless

I’ve created 3 separate accounts with this app now and gotten one day of use out of each. With each account, the App randomly logs me out and then locks me out claiming that they’ve “detected activity which violates Microsoft User Agreement.” Seeing as I’ve only used the app to make To-Do lists, To-Do lists must violate Microsoft’s user agreement. Every account unlocking attempt is unsuccessful and when I try to contact support, guess what!? I need to LOG IN to my locked account (!?!?) to even get to a human person. Otherwise I am redirected to the same 2 or 3 articles on unlocking my account that have been unsuccessful. Totally useless. Maybe people who use Windows products have better luck. I attempted to use this app with my Gmail account, a new Microsoft account I made specifically to try to use the app, and a second Microsoft outlook account made specifically to try to use the app. Ridiculous.
Good App, Still Needs Improvement
by Meleahj on 2018/05/07 12:01
I really like the look of the app, adding emojis to list titles for quick reference. and the ability to make many lists. I would love to see improvements particularly regarding recurring tasks. While, after quite a bit of hunting, I found how to get repeat reminders for tasks, it’s bothersome that there is not a way to have tasks already populated for each day on the daily task list or set for a specific day. This is the one feature I really miss from Todoist. I’m not that person that thinks clearly before 10am. I need to have my daily list ready the evening before so I have it to follow before my brain really wakes up. I know I can see them in Outlook - just wish I could see my todo’s for the day without having to turn on the laptop and go there.
Love the new look!
by KathyKr on 2019/09/11 00:02
I have used this app for several months now. Although it is buggy sometimes with syncing, App Support suggested logging out of it and logging back in, and that seems to help. I like the My Day feature. I like being able to move things around in the order I want to do them TODAY, while their position in their individual lists where they were created stays the same. I like that the My Day list disappears each day. Mentally it was bogging me down to look at tasks I hadn’t finished. I like to focus on a shorter list and I get more done that way. The tasks aren’t really gone, anyway. You can still find them and add them to your day again easily if it’s a good day to accomplish those particular tasks. I love the new look from the most recent update (yesterday or today). The tasks in the boxes are so much easier visually for me to focus on. Seems odd that something that is visual like that would matter, but it does. MUCH easier to see and sort the tasks. I appreciate that App Support always replies when I report a problem, even if the fix hasn’t been discovered yet.
Really like it!
by Tea&Thee on 2019/08/15 19:40
Have used this app on trial for a few weeks and I’m really liking it. I’ve had no trouble with syncing across apps, and the little things that have bothered me (some mentioned here in other reviews) are being fixed almost weekly. I’m a hardcore OneNote user and I’ve learned that the development team is constantly improving and upgrading their products. I’m sticking with this app and I expect it to be top-notch. My feature request is what someone else mentioned here: to streamline the step-throughs on migrating “My Day” to the next day, and deletions. Also, I’d like to be able to modify/delete the default lists; for example, I’m the only user of this app and I don’t need “Assigned to Me” but can’t delete it. Thanks!
Can’t Believe It. Found My Favorite iOS To Do App. Buy MICROSOFT
by PaulieDC on 2019/03/02 18:42
This is IT, the fast and logical To Do app that I will actually use. I saw a vid by a student showing her favorite apps for medical school and when she said the best To Do was this app by Microsoft I laughed. Not anymore, this is great. Entry is SO fast, type and hit Enter and it’s on the list with a checkbox waiting. You can easily add subtasks, move them to other lists, add them to My Day, mark important and favorites. As soon as I type on my iPad, it’s on my iPhone because you sign in with your Microsoft account which I already have for OneDrive. No surprise it’s at 12K reviews and still 4.6 stars.
Just OK
by Dknelson on 2019/10/04 11:36
I’ve been using Wunderlist for a long time. This is very similar and for the most part, does the job. Microsoft seems to be struggling trying to make it their own. In doing so, they have changed things that just really didn’t need to be changed. Daily and Weekly views are a couple of them. You should be able to click on My Day to see what is scheduled for today. The only way to do that is to select “show in My Day but that should be automatic. If you select show in My Day for your tasks, they all show up there instead of only todays tasks. That makes no sense. I may keep it installed to see if they finally get there but will keep using Wunderlist as long as possible and also check out some others.
Clean design, but unreliable sync
by David4859 on 2018/07/14 17:15
I like the design of the app. It is very simple and easy to use. The My Day feature is great to plan out what to do in a given day. (Would be neat to be able to plan upcoming days in a future update too perhaps.) My main issue with the app, however, is the unreliable syncing. Sometimes, when adding a task on one device (eg my phone), it will show up instantly on another device (eg my computer), which is great. But sometimes there is a significant delay before it shows up, and other times, tasks don’t sync at all. While I do enjoy using the app for its simplicity and My Day feature, I cannot be certain that when I plan my day in the morning on my computer, everything will show up later on my phone. And unfortunately, that’s kind of a deal breaker for now...
Welcome improvement over Wunderlist
by sbNewsom on 2017/11/28 20:47
Most of the time when a big company buys a smaller, useful studio, the product degrades. Look at Skype. But here, Wunderlist and a lot of its features have much improved in To-Do. This isn’t to say there aren’t any downsides. Here I’ll list some features I hope will be added soon. -Custom tasklist background -Dark mode or / Colored themes that replace the bright and glaring white theme set. -Being able to sort the My Day list, either showing incomplete up top and the ability to hide completed. This is the most useful feature of To-Do, so it’d be great to see it improved even more! -Checklists. The one feature useful in Wunderlist, but left out in To-Do. Please bring this in! -Add new to top. This is another Wunderlist feature that isn’t present here. Make it list specific. Have it so you can toggle per list, whether a new task will be added to the bottom or top of the pile. If you can make this a quick toggle ever present onscreen, then even better! Thanks Microsoft! I just hope this gets updated instead of killed off. :)
I don’t like having to sign in constantly
by Lima Rodeo on 2019/10/30 18:48
I have used Wunderlist forever and loved it. It was fine, simple, met my needs. They switched over to ‘to do’ and it isn’t any better, just a different color and font. But it makes me sign in every few times I use it and that drives me crazy! It’s supposed to be a productivity app, a time saver, and for whatever reason it keeps rejecting my password so I’ve had to reset it twice now in the 4 days I’ve had the app. Not really saving me time. There’s no banking or sensitive information on this app, and I log in to my phone with a fingerprint, for crying out loud. Why do I have to constantly log in to access my lists? I’ll go back to wunderlist as long as it is available.
Still disappointed by lack of integration after migration
by BeevdOut on 2019/06/03 17:32
OK what the heck is going on here.I received the invitation to Update in 2017 from Wunderlist to this product. However you’re not maintaining both simultaneously and it seems like Wunderlist is still growing laterally. Are they meant to be two separate tools? Did Microsoft forget about this one? I’m very confused because when I updated I thought my account would be closed on Wunderlist however I’m finding all of my lists from 2017 and prior and the Wunderlist account still active. Which product should I be using?
Some suggestions from a Wunderlist user
by RaulLucky on 2018/07/09 18:40
1. Have pre-defined filtered views: Starred/flagged, Today, Week, overdue. The “My Day” function serves as a manual populated list which creates more work. Having the pre-defined filters will allow us to quickly glance at what we need to do. Remember, to-dos are for quick activities not fussing around with manually populating. Maybe rename the My Day to “flagged/starred” items. Week view should at least show the next 3-4 days. 2. Ability to “star/flag” items without having to open the task. In Wunderlist a star was next to the item. Why not create the same but with the “My Day” icon? 3. Add priorities (H/M/L/1/2/3...) 4. When setting up the Due Date for a task, selecting Next Week pushes to Sunday as opposed to one week from the original date. This should be an easy fix. 5. When adding a “Next Step”, have the cursor ready for another entry. For example, when I enter multiple “Steps”, I have to keep touching the “+ Next Step” for each entry. Just like the existing function of adding multiple To-Dos. Keep up the good work!
I want to give 5!
by NickD on 2018/06/09 04:39
While I love the simplicity, it’s not all there yet for me. I love that it syncs perfectly, for me, to outlook tasks as that’s my main source of task input and planning. I also love that I can see what the developers are working on through the app itself as I can see this will soon become a great companion to outlook and the Microsoft suite in general. I imagine jumping for joy if, once they’ve gotten this app all dialed in and fully developed, an update was made to outlook tasks to give a fresh perspective to a very useful but outdated piece of the puzzle. I’m excited for the prospect of giving this app a 5 star rating in the near future on my long endeavor for the perfect task manager suite.
Unrealized potential
by Wen 3.0 on 2018/03/11 16:18
This app had a lot of promise when first released. I was a heavy Wunderlist user that opted to give the app a chance, knowing it wasn't fully baked yet. Over a year later, I'm still waiting on feature parity and the ability to do relatively simple things like create sublists or share lists and tasks. Wunderlist hasn't been updated and now looks out of date. To-Do no longer looks as modern as when it was released and still lacks key features, which have been in planning forever. Now you have Planner, which looks promising. Unless something changes soon, I'll be looking for alternatives. Apps like Things 3 or Todoist have consistently improved over the years and look much better from a UI and feature perspective.
Promising - But Can’t Trust It Yet
by flybone89 on 2018/01/29 02:18
This is a promising to-do app that I can actually use at work since it’s included in our O365 apps, but will not jump-in completely until it becomes more reliable. The interface is simple, easy to use and has just enough features to meet most of my needs without all the complexity of too many task managers these days. But after just starting to use it I am already seeing bugs like duplicate tasks that are apparently mirrors of each other because when I deleted one of the duplicates they both disappeared! Yikes! I like a simple task manager - but one I can trust!! I can’t trust this one yet. But will keep it on the phone for now and see if a few updates come through before I start trying to use it more.
Formatting
by G-Daddy T on 2019/11/01 14:37
I want to commend Microsoft for finally getting the integration of their multiple tools to work cohesively across various platforms. I noticed when inputting information into the ToDo IOS app or the Outlook desktop application, the spacing and formatting is inconsistent when viewing from the other application. If you start the task within Outlook desktop application and then edit or view the task within ToDo IOS app, the next time you access the task within Outlook desktop application the formatting is gone. This issue also occurs using Outlook on the Web and the Outlook desktop application. Keep up the hard work.
Fix constant login
by fb12322 on 2018/07/14 09:12
I love this app but the only thing making me want to delete it is how much it makes you login over and over again. Apps are not supposed to do that. It’s not a high security email account so there’s no worry. Please make it like every other app we use and let it stay logged in or I can’t handle it anymore. Also, suggestion- could you please make an option of tasks that are able to be set to repeat? If it’s something I need to be reminded of every day, weekly, or monthly I’d like to be able to set it on an auto repeat. With these two things, I’d be 100% in love with this app. Thanks!
RIP Wunderlist
by Nooowayjose on 2019/01/04 03:20
Man you guys butchered Wunderlist (honestly not surprised). The import process from Wunderlist to this half baked app did NOT goes as expected. Let’s say goodbye to folders, which was honesty a pretty simple but effective feature from Wunderlist that kept lists neat and organized. However, the main problem that caught my eye was the way subtasks were imported into this crummy app. They were literally imported as text. TEXT. How lazy are your software developers to ignore this pretty obvious problem. I can get behind the idea of “step” vs “subtasks” (sounds a little less robotic tbh), but come on. You’re really going to just import the subtasks from Wunderlist as plain text? That’s just pure laziness. I deleted this piece of garbage and went straight back to Wunderlist. I would not be proud if I developed this unfinished product.
It need to be better as a to-do-list application
by imonewalker on 2019/10/01 19:22
I have many things to do under my attention is focused, so I use the to do list in our daily work and life. I used the To-do List application, but I need to pay 4.99 US dollars per month with calculation your average task per day and other, which is expensive for a software engineer in a developing country. When I give up it, I find just use the checkbox in word is enough for me. So, in my using experience, I think listing your list in the web in PC is better in an application when its don’t have more functions for users.
Junk
by T-2018 on 2018/06/05 03:01
I agree with the other reviewers - it’s insulting that Microsoft has even bothered to release this. It’s scarcely even 1/4 finished. It must be depressing to be one of the developers working on this (assuming they even have a full time dev working on this, which is a big assumption given the glacial rate of progress). No categories import from Outlook, minimal filtering options, etc... I would like to set this up to use Michael Linenberger’s MYN system, or even some other GTD system, but the app is too crippled to allow for that. Seriously how hard is all of this to re-implement? It’s been done many times before, and apparently they have (had?) the developers from the pretty decent 2Day app working on this via an acquihire. Get it together Microsoft. It’s been over a year and this app is still going nowhere.
Biggest issue is needing to re-login frequently
by Demani97 on 2019/08/27 11:15
Outlook doesn’t have any issue staying logged in, but To-do asks practically every other day. Task Management and organization is something I can do on the subway in the morning as part of my prep routine before I get in to the office. But when I go to check my list and get stonewalled by a login screen it’s a little frustrating. Or worse, when I get in and do some work, but then get locked out and THEN find out I lost my additions. More than a little frustrating. The other Office apps don’t ask nearly as often. Until this gets resolved I’m reluctant to fully integrate it into my workflow.
Very good!
by pigstubs on 2019/10/16 12:17
4.5 stars This app is so very close to what I want in a to do list app! I love the ability to add things to the task list as I think of them without cluttering up today’s to do list. I just wish that things I schedule in advance would automatically populate to the My Day list. I’ve read the justification from Microsoft on why this isn’t the way it’s set up, and I get the idea of making reasonable daily lists, but when I schedule something in advance for a specific day, I need to get it done THAT DAY and I would appreciate it if the app helped me remember that automatically.
Work in progress
by Chaeze on 2019/08/07 22:30
It’s a pretty decent task management app but nowhere close to being a replacement for Wunderlist. There are still no badge notifications available and I wish the app wouldn’t reset back to home screen if you switch to another app. When I’m checking off items in let’s say a groceries list in the app and you receive a message and decide to read that message and go back to the To Do app, the app reverts back to the home screen as if you’re initially starting the app. Now you have to go through several screens before you’re back on that particular task you’re on before. That’s a major inconvenience to me.
iOS Sync is faulty
by Bshmstr78FS on 2018/04/29 01:37
This has been going on for a while and unfortunately, despite its beautiful, smooth user interface, makes me want to not use it. The problem occurs when you are using your Microsoft/Outlook account sync’ed to your iOS device. Your tasks are already sync’ed to iOS native Reminders app. When you try to change items in the To-Do app, it changes the times of scheduled items on your Reminders app. For example, if there is an alarm to an event set at a certain date 9:00 in the morning, To-Do app changes this to the previous day at 5:00 PM. Why? This simple issue makes the app unusable for me. Such a shame.
Solid start, but when will feature updates arrive?
by WannaBelieveInThings on 2017/12/30 21:05
When the preview version of this app was released back in April 2017, it was off to a great start. The app was simple to use and the design was elegant. However, I wish the developers had continued to iterate on their strong start through releasing new features over this past year. They haven’t done much other than clean up bugs. I don’t understand what is taking so long given that this Microsoft To-Do app is the reincarnation of the Wunderlist app. Wunderlist had a broader menu of features than Microsoft To-Do. Why is it taking so long to recode these Wunderlist features into the new To-Do app?
App is crashing unexpectedly
by P Pat566 on 2019/09/12 20:39
I use the app mostly for my work and I am logged in using my work O365 account. With recent update and this happened with older UI as well that app would crash when trying to set due date or reminder for a task. However with the recent update app crashing has increased and app is always crashing when I try to change the theme. Completing uninstalling and reinstalling does not fix the crashes. Also, restarting the phone does not help. I am using the app because flagged email integration is my go to feature. Please fix the crashes. Also appreciate the teams hard work that has gone behind making this useful app. Thanks!

Glitchy
by Alangs1984 on 2019/11/16 17:48
I love using tasks through my outlook on my computer, and was excited when I found they have an app. This app freezes and crashes 90% of the time I use it. Disappointing, but hoping they fix it as it could be very useful.
Sharing does not work
by UB-1002 on 2019/11/16 16:32
It will take long for microsoft to come up at Google or Apple level. I shared my todo list link via text with my friend who has microsoft todo app installed. Nothing happened. Clicking on link opens the todo app but nothing shows up
I love you Microsoft
by The Lyrical Dreamer on 2019/11/16 04:11
Microsoft loves us so much they gave us the app for free, that’s how much Microsoft believes in our success!!!
Very useful app
by Baggybuns on 2019/11/16 01:39
I love that it syncs across all your devices and the flexibility within the app to modify and move around task and due dates is very nice!!!!
Needs to have a notification tag icon
by bayybdj on 2019/11/16 00:11
Missing a notification icon. Otherwise works well with outlook.
Simple and efficient
by Ttkvg123 on 2019/11/13 20:08
Helps me categorize and keep track of my tasks with simple but elegant UI.
Amazing Productivity tool
by DKing8x on 2019/11/12 18:24
Earlier I was one note /Wunderlist to keep track of ToDo. This tool is amazing and beats almost every tool. 5 star experience
Finally!
by Duke578 on 2019/11/12 16:15
I’ve been waiting for this from MS for a long time as Outlook has not offered an adequate task manager. To Do is an excellent improvement. It is just taking me a bit to wrap my head around how to use the various functions to fit my needs. I wish the help provided a bit more examples of how to setup and use the tool. But I’ll get and appreciate MS helping out with this tool. I’d like to see a desktop version and/or better integration with Outlook. But the 365 version of TD is good for now!
Helps
by Nicky385543052 on 2019/11/12 15:38
Great
Missing export function
by SmolaT on 2019/11/12 05:38
Unfortunately when i moved from Wunderlist I realized it is missing any kind of tasks export, printing, sharing (outside app) which makes it unusable for me.
Deletes my notes!
by ShockTherapii on 2019/11/12 03:03
I loved this app at first. Every once in a while my text would "undo" and a line would disappear, but the past two days I've had huge chunks of notes disappear. What good is a notes app if it deletes your notes?!
Almost...
by Llamas say Myeh! on 2019/11/12 00:50
Microsoft To Do is almost great for iOS. It needs better repeats (last day of the month, first workday, last workday, etc. for corporate use. Apple Watch and a widget would help. The developers should look at Things 3's organization within tasks. Excellent progress...almost there!
Overall solid
by FMD31 on 2019/11/12 00:30
Happy with the app. Came over as a former Wunderlist user. Would love ability to toggle between work/personal accounts on the iOS app. Would be a great feature.
Good start
by Ericwanger on 2019/11/11 19:47
Good start. Wish it was a bit closer to the full feature set of outlook-pc and wunderlist, but they're making progress. We are exchange users and I make heavy use of outlook's ability to flag a contact (not an email) for followup. I will become loyal to whatever app makes it easiest flag contacts (not emails) for followup without having to buy a crm system (and dupe your comtact list)
Best Ever
by Daddapook on 2019/11/11 17:05
I've used digital to do lists as long as they have been around and used many. I've used Microsoft To Do since it's been out and I think it's the best ever made. Not too much, not too little. Does everything I can imagine that I need it to do. Keep up the great work, Microsoft.
List sharing doesn’t work well
by connsbronz on 2019/11/10 21:01
Says list unavailable all the time
Poor Wunderlist Replacement
by Sluggo103 on 2019/11/10 04:52
This thing is much less useful and user friendly than Wunderlist. Just 2 examples are new items appear at the bottom rather than top of list, and completed items, when displayed, show up randomly throughout the list rather than grouped together. It’s as if your programmers just threw it together with little thought as to how people actually use these lists. It’s obvious they haven’t tried to use this thing themselves. They should have studied Wunderlist a little closer and tried to duplicate and improve on its functionality rather than wandering off aimlessly on their own. Needs a total remake.
Great tool for everyday
by rockyinnc on 2019/11/09 12:08
I’ve been using this app now for two years. It’s a great tool to set up simple reminders to large lists of to-do’s. What is great is the cross platform access from iOS to Win10.
Combine ToDo App with Outlook ToDo
by Combine ToDo on 2019/11/08 01:04
Is there a way to combine the ToDo tasks in the ToDo app with Outlooks ToDo?
It doesn’t support widget
by Voldemar88 on 2019/11/06 21:44
System offered me transfer all my tasks from Wunderlist to “To do”. And if I used to able to view quick all my tasks for today through the widget Wunderlist, and also manage it, here I have to go to the app every time. Supporting Widget is “must have” today for this type app.
Lacking.
by air_e_anna on 2019/11/06 17:52
There’s a lot missing from this app. My biggest complaint is that the share feature doesn’t work. As a wedding designer, I create check lists for my brides. As of right now there’s no way to get these lists to them. I was hoping Microsoft would deliver everything (at least most of) everything I wanted. But sadly this app falls short.
Widget
by Flyaway117 on 2019/11/06 15:49
I completely fall in love with the app. Wish you could make a widget for it so that I can take a quick glance at all the tasks needed to be done for the day.
Great, but My Day isn’t practical
by Daka Montenegro on 2019/11/06 13:15
It’s one of the best to-do apps but the main function ‘My Day’ isn’t functional if at the end of a working day you want to plan your tasks for tomorrow, as the My Day list gets deleted every midnight. I see so many people have this issue, if solved, this app can become the best one.
Love This Program
by Sunfellow on 2019/11/06 03:58
I've used all kinds of task managers. This is my favorite. I love how clean, versatile and stable it is. I love that it syncs across multiple devices -- my desktop, laptop, iPad, and iPhone. Whatever changes I make are populated across all my connected devices instantly. I also love that Microsoft recently came out with a desktop version of the app. For me, it has replaced Evernote, Wunderlist, Notes, Antnotes, and other sticky programs. I highly recommend it.
No app notification badges
by Alohabj on 2019/11/05 19:16
Doesn’t make any sense of not having the basic fundamental functionality and it’s been a long time!

One of the best to-do apps

Todo disappears

Have no idea why the todo items are disappearing. Disappointed ! came from Wunderlist
The My Day doesn’t auto-populate
by Mac Since 1985 on 2019/11/04 15:35
What spoils a good app is that, if you have designated an event as daily or for a given day, it will not appear in the “smart list” My Day automatically. You have to move the event (all of them) yourself—every day in the case of daily events. This is an infuriating chore. It sours every morning, like clockwork. A MS engineer responded to complaints by writing that to see My Day showing all one’s events scheduled for that day would be too overwhelming. How’s that for logic!

by Mappster on 2019/11/04 05:43
I love the absence of bells, whistles and other gimmicks that do more to distract than help you stay focused. It has just enough customization to make it personal without overwhelming you with choice. Well done, Microsoft. I’m a fan.

Logging off and not logging again
by Faiz0019 on 2019/11/03 15:33
Initially I was exited to use this app. But in a day the checklist I created disappeared and after that it logged off and not logging back again.
Would be 5 stars if they had a widget
by xEvilOlivEx on 2019/11/02 02:02
I am a long time Wunderlist user and just downloaded it. It's great, but without the widget like Wunderlist has, I'm deleting it and going back to Wunderlist. It's a shame 🙁. Why no widget Microsoft??
Unnecessary complication
by Brownky on 2019/11/02 00:55
So if I want to see what I have planned for today, I have to go into something called “planned” then move those tasks to a different list called “my day?” Really?
Review
by DB MUSIC on 2019/11/02 00:31
I love the features in Wunderlist . this so far does not come close to matching Wunderlist. I hope you will incorporate their features before you discontinue wunderlist.
Formatting
by G-Daddy T on 2019/11/01 14:37
I want to commend Microsoft for finally getting the integration of their multiple tools to work cohesively across various platforms. I noticed when inputting information into the ToDo IOS app or the Outlook desktop application, the spacing and formatting is inconsistent when viewing from the other application. If you start the task within Outlook desktop application and then edit or view the task within ToDo IOS app, the next time you access the task within Outlook desktop application the formatting is gone. This issue also occurs using Outlook on the Web and the Outlook desktop application. Keep up the hard work.
Needs badges
by Graaves on 2019/11/01 12:26
Great app, but I can’t move over until those red badges notifications are implemented. Sometimes I disregard lock screen notifications so I would rely on the badges to remind. Please implement that! I would love to move all my data from the basic reminders to here but can’t do so until badges are implemented.
Typical Microsoft garbage
by Heikelmans on 2019/10/31 12:16
Wunderlist is simple and has always given me what I needed. No fancy bells and whistles but did what I wanted it to do. Then I got suckered into a switch to Microsoft To Do. Don’t waste your time. You have to create a Microsoft account so you can have yet another company mining your personal info and promoting its services to you. I did that, created a password, tried to sign into To Do repeatedly and just got a blank white screen every time. It was a reminder of the constant problems I had when I had a PC. Bye bye Microsoft, going back to my simple Wunderlist.
Needs badges
by Lee Kaine on 2019/10/30 21:26
This would be a five star review for me if it had badges for overdue tasks. That’s the only reason I’m still using the default Reminders app instead of this one.
Bad set up
by nick1232284646 on 2019/10/30 19:52
I had such a difficult time getting this "To Do" to let me recover my Microsoft account. I thought I had it done. I had to confirm the To Do account with email sent to me. There was no link in the email. Only numbers. When I tried to get back into To Do it didn't recognize the whole account of which I had just made a new password. I'm not used to such cheesyness. Adios
Works well but some gaps
by Theprocode10 on 2019/10/30 19:33
I notice that whenever I forget to complete a reminder that is on repeat, it won’t repeat itself. This is kind of a gap for me.
I don’t like having to sign in constantly
by Lima Rodeo on 2019/10/30 18:48
I have used Wunderlist forever and loved it. It was fine, simple, met my needs. They switched over to ‘to do’ and it isn’t any better, just a different color and font. But it makes me sign in every few times I use it and that drives me crazy! It’s supposed to be a productivity app, a time saver, and for whatever reason it keeps rejecting my password so I’ve had to reset it twice now in the 4 days I’ve had the app. Not really saving me time. There’s no banking or sensitive information on this app, and I log in to my phone with a fingerprint, for crying out loud. Why do I have to constantly log in to access my lists? I’ll go back to wunderlist as long as it is available.
Doesn’t fit my needs
by mjdindc on 2019/10/29 13:24
Overall it’s a good app. Unfortunately I need one that allows me to have a time of day that task is due and app doesn’t do that.
Actually liking it more and more
by GDefenbaugh on 2019/10/29 13:15
I used Wunderlist for years and was irritated when MS bought it, certain the app was hosed. But I found it was basically the same. Now I’m starting to use the Tasks feature as I’ve grown tired of the over-intelligence of my GTD app. Sometimes you just want a simple list with a few attributes to eliminate the paper list you make of things to do today.
Disappointed; wish Wunderlist was sticking around
by Lulabyte on 2019/10/28 20:04
I am really disappointed in the fact that this is replace Wunderlist but they’ve yet to include some of the convenient settings that make Wunderlist great. For example, when you add a new item it goes to the bottom of the list and you can’t change that unless you want to lose your manual sorting order by forcing it to sort by creation date. You also can’t star/set priority for something until it’s on the list. In Wunderlist you could do that as you were adding a task. Please, if you’re going to replace Wunderlist at least have the same options.
Great app! But please…

by justinjlin on 2019/10/28 12:55
This app is so buggy compared to Wunderlist. It also adds no value even if it worked. Why did they bother building this? What a waste of engineering resources.

Still barely usable
by Shooter9x19 on 2019/10/28 09:53
Switched back to Wunderlist. Guys, is that really hard to set reminders automatically to the same date as due date as Wunderlist does? I can forgive the lack of other features Wunderlist had, but this one basically forces me to spend twice more time in this crap app.

The My Day list keeps me focused!
by PapaVespa on 2019/10/27 21:02
I really like the My Day list - it makes me think about what I want to accomplish within the day and focus on those tasks. Since the list resets daily, it keeps me coming back and helps me be more productive. I feel this feature is an improvement over Wunderlist.
Microsoft on Fire

So many bugs!

Comical
by Ahlbus on 2019/10/24 13:07
I found it comical how you the due dates are defaulting to yesterday, and the “today view” contains nothing unless you add it, today... It’s like the Boom Beach of To Do lists. You gotta keep micromanaging it!
Saved my brain!
by Ldunham1 on 2019/10/24 12:57
I have ADD and ToDo is helping me to: 1- Remember my tasks. 2- I can program my day better. 3- Helps me to not procrastinate. 4- I can access from all my devices. Amazing!! Thank you!!
Impossible to edit notes with links
by JBO-12 on 2019/10/22 22:05
The moment you tap anywhere in a note with links it automatically launches the browser with that link. This makes it extremely difficult to edit these notes on mobile. I end up having to edit them on the desktop which defeats the point of having an app that syncs.
Please add Apple Watch support
by Thyrabit on 2019/10/22 19:42
This is the only app I can use cross platforms and at work; so for me, it’s my best todo app around. The only missing piece is the Apple Watch support.

Elegant and powerful productivity tool
by UrbanInPhx on 2019/10/19 15:37
Easy list management coupled with powerful features make this a great addition to your life. The ability to capture all the swirling things that need to be done organized by lists but then add just what’s important to a specific day so it isn’t overwhelming is powerful (and comes from Wunderlist which was the basis for this tool). But there are also powerful suggestion capabilities to help you plan your day, sub checklists, scheduled task capabilities etc. Try it out!
Okay
by Ujpesti on 2019/10/19 04:27
When you search for Wunderlist Microsoft tries to steer you to ToDo. ToDo is an okay app. but it’s certainly no Wunderlist.I guess the idea here is to buy out a competitor, improve on your own product and eventually drop Wunderlist. Now, my question is why spend so much money to develop a new app. when you could just keep a good working app? I imagine someday ToDo may become as good as Wunderlist, but the day isn’t here yet. I’m sticking with Wunderlist.
Almost amazing
by Juliebrown22 on 2019/10/19 03:36
Great cloud based app. I love it can go to multiple devices. Editing order of lists is cumbersome but functional. Two settings id like: new items to the top or bottom of the list. IPHONE WIDGET ability. Still a very good app, easy setup syncs from Wunderlist

Issues w Microsoft App Developers
by AB_Preach on 2019/10/17 14:37
I’ve been thinking about transitioning from Apple iCloud based apps to apps that work on all hardware platforms. What I am finding is that iOS has the market cornered on the quality of Apps in its App Store. I’ve also been very turned off by the smaller app developers and their push to subscription based plans and lack. I don’t want a freaking subscription to every app! Plus I find that it’s not really worth it unless the hardware company offers cloud storage, optimized apps and supports them along with its hardware on multiple platforms. App developers have handled the move to iOS 13 poorly. They have been slow to update, switching to subscription models on previously owned apps and only My Lord knows if the app will be updated with the features you want. With companies like Apple, Google and Microsoft you know what you get. I’m afraid of Google because of it privacy policy, but it has solid apps. Apple is apple. Hardware is good, but apps are basic. Microsoft seems to be showing a lot of promise lately, but I think there app developers are poor. I am coming to believe that they intentionally hold back from full iOS integration. If it’s not intentional, then it’s just plan silliness considering their mission and that they no longer have a phone. I’m going to post this on each of the Microsoft apps and hope that it gets someone’s attention. Lol Microsoft Todo: Lacks Share Extension support Can’t email a todo into the app. Isn’t integrated with iOS search which is huge while on the go. Outlook: Took months to get calendar search. Calendar such only works with outlook accounts. (I would move to this app if I could search my calendar) Printing an attachment isn’t always straight forward. I tried to print a word document and had to convert it to pdf. New design is clunky and cluttered. Slow splash page at launch. Phantom updates and fixes. OneNote: Slow splash page at launch. Isn’t integrated with iOS search which is huge while on the go. Just sharing my thoughts. I’m just noticing a lack of consistency across third party apps which keeps me with boring old apple services.
Great application

Could be good ...
by Kid Rock C on 2019/10/16 14:26
... if they let us turn off those highly annoying swipe confirmations. I guess they think that users are too stupid to be allowed to swipe and delete a task without having to confirm that action with a pop-up confirmation window. There’s such a thing as ‘undo’ in iOS, Microsoft, so why don’t you give that a try instead of getting in our way of getting things done. Thanks
Best To-Do List App I have Found
by TheZZman2000 on 2019/10/16 14:17
I would have to say that overall Microsoft To-Do is a fantastic app and definitely the best to-do list app I have used. They make it very easy for someone with an ever growing and changing list of things that need to be done to organize everything in their life. For example: I have my main tasks listed in the default list but I also have a list for each of the jobs I work, and a group with lists for all of my college classes and their assignments. And the best part is you can view everything that needs to be done today, tomorrow, next week, and later from all of those lists all on one page in the “Planned” tab. This app also works really well across multiple platforms by instantly syncing changes. I use it on my iPhone, iPad, and Windows PC. A main feature I would really love to see added for the versions on iOS and iPadOS is the ability to add Microsoft To-Do to your widgets this way you can see and check things off your list all right from your home screen. My biggest complaint is that whenever you add a task from the “Planned” tab it defaults to being due yesterday??? But overall it’s a to-do list app and I think you would have a really difficult time finding a better one out there.
Very good!
by pigstubs on 2019/10/16 12:17
4.5 stars This app is so very close to what I want in a to do list app! I love the ability to add things to the task list as I think of them without cluttering up today’s to do list. I just wish that things I schedule in advance would automatically populate to the My Day list. I’ve read the justification from Microsoft on why this isn’t the way it’s set up, and I get the idea of making reasonable daily lists, but when I schedule something in advance for a specific day, I need to get it done THAT DAY and I would appreciate it if the app helped me remember that automatically.
Amazing and worth it!
by Danyel Shaikh on 2019/10/15 01:47
This is one of the best apps ever as it organizes my life! I love how you can add backgrounds to each reminder list. As a suggestion, can you make a, Apple Watch app?
Can’t share task lists!!!
by 73ElCid on 2019/10/14 22:04
Extremely annoying. Impossible to share task lists with the only other person in the household. We tried many times on iPhone 11 and the link sent via SMS wouldn’t open the app. It takes you to a To Do website and even after following the login instructions, it wouldn’t share the task list.
Still worse than Wunderlist
by Telfire on 2019/10/14 17:48
After years of development from the world’s richest software company, this software is still nowhere near as good as its predecessor which was developed independently by a small team in far less time. Pathetic. Literally pathetic. So sad that this is the state of things.
No Apple Watch support?
by Cb1087 on 2019/10/14 17:47
The only downside here is that there is no Apple Watch support for an otherwise great to-do manager.
Dreading the day they close Wunderlist

by PSSnyder on 2019/10/13 12:30
MS To-Do is almost as good as, and in some ways better than, Wunderlist. With a little customizing it has a clean and simple interface that lets you track tasks and move them to “my day” for completion. The ability to easily move the focus to tasks makes MS To-Do a pleasure to use. If it continues to carefully add and adjust features it will remain my choice for To-Do lists.

A Great Start
by Bob Saget's Thumb on 2019/10/10 04:37
As of writing this review, I can say this app has a lot of potential. In terms of how it functions, it works well and is reliable. However, there are a few items missing that could make this app even better. 1. Add badges as part of the app. 2. Have a widget function for iOS and iPadOS. 3. Make a "smart" feature that auto enters information for to do. For example if I write, "submit paper tomorrow at 8pm," the app should set a due date of tomorrow with an alert at 8pm. Currently, these items have to be entered manually. These items are not a deal breaker, however, they are evidence of a strong app with still a long way to go to be even better.

Missing sharing extension, start dates
by Luhmann on 2019/10/10 03:41
Would be great if it allowed task creation from the iOS share extension like other task managers. And while only a few task managers have start dates as well as due dates, I find this to be an essential feature. Relative reminders would be good for repeating tasks as well (eg: 5 days before due).
Finally a good Task Manager app

Awesome app, needs to support multiple accounts
by Faruh paerhati on 2019/10/09 02:53
I thoroughly enjoy Microsoft Todo and am a heavy user on all platforms (Desktop and Mobile). However, I, like many other users, have a work and personal account (cannot put sensitive tasks/work information on my personal account). This works fine on Desktop, but I cant easily switch between my work and personal accounts on this iOS app. That is the one thing really slowing down my productivity and flow, even though this is a great app. Hence the 4 star review, which will become 5 once the much needed multi-account support comes to iOS
Assigning Tasks
by BERINGER wine on 2019/10/08 22:51
Recently my organization migrated over to Office 365. I use my task manager on my PC a lot assigning tasks to my team of 17 and attaching emails, documents, etc. to assist with the execution of the task. I really need the functionality of what I stated above to occur in this task manager that syncs with my 365 account and is allowed by my IT Department. I want my PC functions for Task Management available to me on my smart devices and I want that for my team that works remotely in retail environments as well. Sincerely, Jeff B
Needs multiple logins
by EmilyinBK on 2019/10/08 16:59
I have an exchange account for work AND a personal outlook account. This app will only let me log in to one account at a time, but I need to see all my tasks in one place. Except for that I love it, but that problem keeps me from using it. I read that it DOES allow multiple logins on Android, so please fix this iOS app!!!
Finally a good to-do app for iOS

by Jj2195 on 2019/10/04 13:07
Recent release (end of Sept 2019) is very buggy with random duplication of tasks and confusion when you try to move a task from the MyDay list. But I have been using this app for a few months before writing the review and have found that the programmers are dedicated and listening. Bugs don’t stick around through the next revision and the revisions are every couple of weeks on average( see version history). Not to mention the new features and improvements they keep introducing. The app is organized and flexible with a good balance of options and ease of use. You can start out very simple if you want, and add in complexity as you get comfortable. I am thrilled with my choice and will stick with them through the growing pains ( many of my apps seem buggy with iOS 13 so I actually blame apple for a poor roll-out) because by now I trust the developers to fix it!
Needs a lot of work
by Isami87 on 2018/05/02 12:44
I am a physician and a scientist who requires a good to-do app to keep everything straight on a daily basis. Wunderlist was really the perfect tool for this, allowing me to organize and share tasks with lab members and clinical colleagues. When I learned it would eventually replace wunderlist, I decided to give To-Do a solid try. I imported all my lists from wunderlist, familiarized myself with all of To-Do’s features, and used it in place of Wunderlist for a good week. Unfortunately, a year after it’s unveiling, To-Do still needs a lot of work. The lack of a way to group related lists and the inability to automatically place tasks that are due today into the “my day” folder are critical deficiencies. Sure you can click the lightbulb in the “my day” folder and select all the upcoming tasks with the help of “suggestions,” but many (like me) cant remember to do that on a daily basis. The point of a to-do app is to make remembering all of your daily tasks unnecessary. I had so many issues with missing things (I literally have a hundred tasks some days) that I had to switch back to Wunderlist within a week. I know that the Microsoft team is working hard on To-Do behind the scenes. I plan to keep checking in and switch to to-do once it truly integrates all the features of wunderlist.
Much Better than the Rest Including Wunderlist!
by Jim NY on 2019/05/09 08:32
ToDo Microsoft I have struggled with this app over the last year always going back to gtasks and Due after giving up on To Do after a few days each time. It is now my main app. I love it. I surprisingly have grown to love the way the My Day disappears every night. It's very fast to repopulate every morning and you can scrutinize the list and just leave out the unnecessary ones. I have tried probably 10 todo apps and I'm kind of surprised that this one is by a good margin the best. However, why start the week on SUNDAY? Why not Monday as the Desktop version. Why not give options/customizing for snooze the way the excellent Due app does? Also, the Reminder later today or tomorrow is lame. Again, they can learn a lot from Due. Why not be customizable or just make it remind me in 1 hour as an option? Anyway, congratulations on some significant improvements!
Perfect for me

I am one of those people who keep trying different organizational apps and systems. I’ve found this one best meets my needs for on that is not cluttered and great for the day to day lists I make. I love creating a project list of tasks, giving the a date or making a more detailed sub-list, giving it a date or not. The best part is starting each My Day with a clean slate and adding the tasks with recommendations from the app. I love I can set up my day before I leave for work from my iPad then check off the list as I go from the desktop at work. The only thing I would add, or haven’t discovered how to do, is to archive my completed list for future use, especially for an annual work event. I don’t like the look of the long list of completed projects and don’t want to delete them.
Serves its purpose
by Dang Hazelnut on 2019/02/11 23:18
My husband and I have been looking for an app that accommodates to our meal-planning. This one is by far the best due to a simple user interface, convenient checklist, uncomplicated tools, and online account integration. Although what we use is very different than what this app is intended for, it’s exactly what we need. We are removing one star because we find it difficult to retype all the entries for other lists. Having a copy-and-paste feature would be wonderful. Another feature we would like to see is an option to set which page is defaulted when opening the app. Right now, it’s “My Day” and we would like to be able to see the entire list page when we open the app. Lastly, we would love to see an expanded collection of colors and themes. Heck, I would love for it to be completely customizable where we can select photos from our camera roll. Looking forward to what the future updates this app has to offer!
Half-Baked
by Grogboshi on 2018/03/08 02:16
This app and its web counterpart need a lot more work. It would be great if they combined it with Outlook Tasks and Planner into a single task management system, akin to Todoist. The app needs natural language support, a desktop Mac client, tie-ins with Teams to create tasks and projects directly from Teams, and tasks dated for today need to be automatically added to My Day so everything due in a given day is all in one place, rather than looking from list to list. It would also be great if it had a general Inbox to add tasks to as they come to mind and then organize later, like GTD prescribes. List sharing would be another big boost, especially for businesses if it’s linked to Teams, so that projects could be organized through ToDo and tasks managed. Apps like TickTick or Todoist show how powerful task management systems can also be easy to use and good for both individuals and businesses. Hopefully this app will follow in their footsteps and replace the myriad Microsoft task and project management options that currently exist (Outlook Tasks, Planner, To-Do), like Microsoft is doing consolidating Lync, Skype, and Teams.
Steps are headed in the right direction but…
by middlenameray on 2018/04/13 20:26
With the addition of steps/subtasks, we’re definitely getting closer to this app replicating the full functionality Wunderlist (need folders and shared notes support to make it complete). But there’s a weird glitch in the app and the steps keep disappearing/reappearing. Sometimes they show, sometimes they don’t. The first time I reopened the app after creating some steps on one of my to-dos I thought they didn’t take, so I added them again, then they vanished again on another reload, so I added them again. Turns out, when I opened the To-Do web client, the original steps I added and ALL the duplicate entries saved to the cloud like they were supposed to but don’t always populate on screen on the phone. What a productivity nightmare. Add a new step? They all appear again. Rearrange the to-dos? Disappear. If this bug can be squashed I’ll give the app a fourth star. I’ll be screenshotting any to-dos with steps in the meantime so I can be sure I can reference them when I’m on the go.
Over designed
by Unparadise on 2018/06/01 16:35
I like the improvement I have seen in the past few months. I think Todo is heading the right direction. There are a few features such as assign to someone and attach photos to a note that are still missing. And it doesn’t do a good job integrating with other Microsoft services such as Outlook and Flow. But I hope these will be added along the way. One thing I strongly dislike about this app is it’s unnecessary big visual background that takes up 1/3 of the screen. Even though it goes away after scrolling its uneconomical use of limited real estate on the phone makes me hate it. A todo app should focus on what the user tries to accomplish and reduce every possible noise. I love the Things app for its simple design. It’s just so beautiful. You can feel that everything shown on the screen is intentional with a purpose. The original Wunderlist design was also really good for the same reason. Please offer the option to remove the annoying title background. I hate it! Thanks
Missing One Critical Feature!!
by Kaspa7 on 2018/10/02 04:26
I love the simple yet pretty layout of this app, and I love that I can create different categories (work, school, personal) while having a “My Day” area that shows me ALL tasks that I need to complete that day. Beautiful! HOWEVER, any task you put a due date on does NOT automatically show up in My Day once that day arrives! So even if I put a task as “due tomorrow”, once tomorrow comes it will not show up in My Day. So basically every single morning I have to go through my various lists and add tasks manually to My Day. The whole point of having a due date for me is to “set it and forget it”. It’s too exhausting to add each task manually every day. Doesn’t it make sense that if a task is DUE TODAY that it should appear in the MY DAY folder? Drives me crazy!! I also wish it would have a badge app icon showing me how many tasks are on My Day for the day, so I can have a quick glance just from the home screen of how many tasks I still have to complete that day.
Improving, update by update
by cierrabrooke on 2018/12/01 15:41
To-Do has definitely improved from my first download a year ago, but there are still key features that keep me with Wunderlist (app/company was acquired by Microsoft and that team now works on To-Do). Pros of To-Do that have me looking forward to a move from Wunderlist: - Dropped the skeuomorphic design - Has Wunderlist import feature (some reviews say this is still a little buggy) - The font is clean and visually pleasing Features Wunderlist has that To-Do still needs: - Folders and nesting for lists: I prefer to break out different projects and responsibilities within my work list - Option for a scrolling calendar wheel, or the ability to have weeks start on Monday, not Sunday when setting task due dates. I’m fine with the “Pick a date” calendar option, but I would SO prefer the ability to have this calendar have Mondays to start weeks. I’ve been able to do this in Outlook, so I know you can add this feature 😊 - Ability to update profile photo: Currently cannot update the standard avatar - Variety of neutral backgrounds: With To-Do, the background of the “Important” list cannot be altered. For now it’s an uneditable purple space telescope theme. I tried to swap every list to be a plain neutral blue with no cartoon drawings. Some people may love the cartoons, but I need more neutral color options and just want to focus on my to dos, especially the ones I’ve noted are most important!
A simple reminders app is just what most of us need.
by e10. with a lightning port. on 2018/10/14 08:43
I started looking for a reminders app when I realized that the calendar’s “up next” widget contains reminders as well, so I deleted reminders and started looking elsewhere. Most of the reminders apps I’ve seen are either really simple, too complicated, or have complex tasks and just useless stuff locked behind a paywall. Microsoft’s ToDo is not the best app for the job, but it’s at least got the basics down, doesn’t lock it in a paywall, and doesn’t make it super complex. I would still like having location based reminders like on the Apple app, but I’ll forgive it. It still has: Reminders based on time, repeating reminders daily-weekly-monthly-yearly, notes, and color coded reminders groups. Yes, I wish it had location reminders, and that it didn’t force me to have it’s “Tasks” group, but it really is all you need. It’s basic, and that’s good.
Not ready for prime time, far from it
by No ads preferred on 2019/04/10 14:10
The primary fault I have with this app is the lack of ability to schedule tasks. It allows you to assign a due date and will let you set a reminder, but true scheduling of a task is wholly missing. What I mean is that I want to be able that a task is due to be complete by a certain time on a certain date. And then the list of tasks is presented in that order. Here’s what I need to do first today, then what I need to do next, etc. items with a due date but no required due time would be at the end of the list for that day. The reminder field in the app would be used more for telling me when to start a task. A secondary fault is a more robust prioritization. More than just a star or not star rating, it needs to let me say that a task has a high, medium, or low priority. That way, if I have to let a task slip, I’ll know which one. The “Errands” app does this well. I don’t use it because I need a to-do app that will work both on my iPhone and my PC. Next, categorization would be very nice. Thus, I can assign a task to a “Field” category or an “Office” category, depending on where it needs to be done. Then I could filter on the “Field” tasks when I head out the door. This should be a free-form data field so I can make up my own list of categories. But it should be such that I can see all tasks if I want to, not just one category. Finally, integration with Outlook on my PC would be great.
I’ve been searching and I found this
by leonard_ong on 2019/03/06 11:23
I used to use OmniFocus, but the interface overwhelmed me. So many buttons and options just to create a task! As a result, I set out searching for a replacement. I’ve tried Wunderlist, iOS reminders, Todoist and a plethora of other apps, but so far To-Do has been the only one with a simple and elegant interface. Everything is incredibly straightforward and there’s even a platform to vote on new features. It’s comforting to know that our voices are being heard on new features. That being said, the app isn’t perfect either. One of my biggest pet peeves is that I can’t plan My Day in advance. It would be good if I could swipe left and right to review yesterday’s and tomorrow’s tasks respectively. Other than that, this app is the best I’ve seen so far. keep it up Microsoft.
Crisp, Clean, and Easy to use
by ShaneMLK on 2017/09/20 22:26
It’s easy to create, order, and customize my lists just how I want. My lists automatically sync on my Windows 10 App, in any browser, and in my iPhone app just by logging into my Microsoft account on each. My favorite part about the App is that it’s the perfect balance between simple and customizable. Each of my list looks unique and beautiful, without making me make too many decisions. It offers just the right amount of colors, icons, and backgrounds to choose from for my lists without making me overthink anything, so I can focus on getting stuff done without anxiety. If you’re looking for a complicated todo app, look elsewhere.
Off to a great start, but needs maturing.
by TheRamius on 2019/07/10 18:26
Pros: - User friendly for what it offers - Fluid, simple interface. Isn’t confusing to know what you’re doing. - Easy to prioritize tasks - Each task can be broken up into items (very useful for projects and/purchasing) Cons - Minimal navigation ability on completed tasks. Only way to navigate completed tasks is by opening up a list where it’s all dumped into. It may be in chronological order, but it’s difficult to know for sure. This leads me to my second issue... - Completed tasks don’t have a date of completion listed next to it unless you click on the individual task. So if you want to know what you completed in a particular week a couple months ago, you have to keep clicking on items until you find the date of interest. It isn’t clear however in what order the completed tasks are arranged. - As of today there is a bug which keeps you from deleting a repeated task in bulk. I accidentally set a reminder for the next 20 years and it generated tasks for every day for the next 20 years. I couldn’t delete them or remove them from my completed tasks list. I’m sure this would be a relatively simple fix. - If you don’t click something as completed the day it was completed, you cannot go back and edit. It only shows the date you clicked completed.
Repeating Tasks Repeatedly Disappear
by quantumofsolace on 2019/02/12 19:06
In the couple of months I've used the app, I've had to re-enter repeating tasks several (3-4) times. It seems to only affect daily tasks but I'm not 100 on that. At some point after I complete a repeating task, the app doesn't repopulate the task for the next iteration. So if I have a task that says "go to the gym" and I check it as completed, sometimes the task shows up the next day and sometimes it doesn't. I don't know exactly when this happens because it's hard to notice a single missing task. (At least for me –i have about 25 repeating tasks.) I assume there's a bug somewhere but it shouldn't take two months for a major corporation to fix it, especially since this is basic functionality for a task app. I should have known the app would be extra when I had to reimport my tasks from Wunderlist 3 times. That process should have been infinitely easier since Microsoft develops both Wunderlist and To Do. I had intended to transition to To Do but I think I'll stick with Wunderlist for the moment.
A Pinch From the Finish Line
by icuragoose on 2018/01/06 21:39
(There is now iPad support!) I have loved Wunderlist, and Microsoft aims to replace it. The features in To Do are remarkably similar and familiar to Wunderlist users with simplicity and minimalism at its core. With a slimmed-down UI, there's less to distract you and with the flawlessly smooth and responsive controls, you feel like you have a firm grasp on your system. Everything is intuitive and inviting. In addition, I'm from Seattle, so I appreciate the themes. Right now the only things missing for my own workflow is the ability to have folders and sublists. This is my last reservation for using this app and once this is complete (both are planned), I can officially utilize this as a Wunderlist replacement. Once I use this in my workflow, I will be most excited about the "My Day" feature. I can use that in tandem with my office' implementation of Kanban to help me see what I committed to getting done today. I can see this being useful for O365 organizations as well, since it can replace the Outlook tasks, pull assigned tasks from Planner, have inputs with Teams (i.e. Right click a message and select "Create Task") I'm excited to see where this goes as I wait patiently for the product to bake. Until then, three stars is about where it's at as of now--little more than a college student's obligatory first app.
UI is phenomenal - but a couple huge complaints
by millerrh on 2019/09/11 03:26
This redesign is nearly perfect. I love the design so much more than Wunderlist. But it is missing a few key features that make it hard to use for me. 1) There are no notification bubbles that appear when a task is overdue like on Wunderlist. I used this feature all the time for recurring tasks that I want out of my way but to be reminded of when it is time to do them. These overdue tasks should be automatically populated in My Day and you should be notified of them. Or at least have the option to. 2) When viewing tasks in My Day or Important, they are all lumped together. If you have multiple projects, it can get disorienting. I prefer the way Wunderlist did it where you can see tasks grouped by the project/list they came from. Helps to organize these lists that pull from multiple projects better.
VERY Disappointing
by Neal William on 2019/09/26 20:05
I’d consider the MS To-Do programming team second worst to the failed Evernote developers (who made a pretty but ruined product). They don’t take the time to understand what users really want, but do things that are “technically right” but practically idiotic. Most recently they reduced the size of a list header. Why??Users complained about it. Why? Because it used limited phone screen space that could be used to show more tasks. So what did the developers do? They added a huge Add Task input box at the bottom of EVERY list, which takes up even more space than the previous header! Furthermore, the tacky Add Task box doesn’t scroll. It just stays at the bottom taking up room! I wanted to like MS To-Do. It’s got a clean interface and is readable. But “you can’t fix stupid”. I consider interface problems caused by poor programming the worst kind of stupid. They reveal the (lack of) capability of the software development team. Accordingly, I’ve moved my tasks and dumped MS To-Do. For those considering MS To-Do, another stupidity is that you cannot set your tasks for “My Day” the evening before. If you want to do that and start your day with ACTION, deciding what to do the day before, save yourself and use another app. Don’t let MS tell you how you should work. MS purchased Wunderlist as the source for MS To-Do. From what I read Wunderlist was abc A+ 5* app. Looks like MS purchased it to ruin it. I “wunder” how long it will survive
Doesn’t hold a candle to Wunderlist
by snc68 on 2019/03/10 15:26
I have been a happy user of Wunderlist for the last couple of years. It’s an exceptional app for organizing your to do list. There was another reviewer that hit the nail on the head with this. The biggest flaw with this To-Do app is that you cannot organize and categorize your tasks in a given day. Why have smart list if your app won’t organize them by smart list? It doesn’t make sense. In the Wunderlist app you enter tasks, you categorize them and then for any given day all the things that you need to do for the day are grouped in the different categories. it’s a simple concept and shouldn’t be too difficult to enable. For example if you go to the grocery store, you don’t go in with a list that has everything all mixed up on one long list. In order to be efficient, you typically will group things by area in the store. You’ll put all of your vegetables together all of your dairy etc. That way you’re not running around the store in a disorganized fashion and missing things on your list. Same thing with managing your daily tasks. It takes way too many brain cells to try to jumble everything up. They need to be categorized so that your brain doesn’t have to do too much work. Very disappointed in this app and I hope Wunderlist stays around in the ether for a while so I can continue to use it. Will have to find something else because To-Do does not cut it.
Good start but needs a lot of improvements
by Dr.DLL on 2018/06/04 15:17
Since this app was apparently built by Wunderlist developers, I shouldn’t be surprised that there’s sync issues, namely between iOS and desktop website. If I edited items on my phone then checked the list on a desktop browser, not only would it not update on the browser, when I go back to the mobile app, it changes things back to before I made the edits. This app seems to have a hard time telling which edits are the most recent and what to change/not change when syncing. Then there’s the minor but still annoying issues such as the whole list moving up and down too much when you try to re order an item (not sure if it’s a bug or a “feature” but please get rid of it) Some functionality suggestions: It’d be nice if items with due dates of “today” can be/are automatically added to My Day because that’s it seems convoluting to have something due today but not have it in “My Day” Also, it’d be very helpful if there’s a way to quick see items past due. Right now you have to check each and every one of lists to look for things you missed and it can get frustrating and time-consuming Changed to 3 stars because although right now it’s half-baked, I really want this app to work.
Problems with a Large List!
by New Apple Fan on 2017/12/01 04:17
I love where this is headed! I’ve been waiting to get to my Outlook/Exchange Tasks for quite awhile from iOS! The interface looks good and I love being able to change Due Dates on numerous tasks at once, etc. One big problem for those of us who have been using Outlook Tasks for 20+ years and have been using Views in Outlook to hide the fact that we’ve not done a good job of dosing or deleting old Tasks...Put some sort of config that will filter To-Do Tasks to the next month and the trailing month (next 30 days and trailing 30 days would be even better!). Reason being: Current To-Do App was working great until it started becoming unresponsive and then seems to flat out crash once it hits 1799 Tasks! So, it’s unusable for me unless I spend a bunch of time cleaning up my Tasks!!!
Organized life!
by Clarissa N on 2019/03/19 15:55
Love this app for organizing my daily, weekly, and monthly tasks. Super easy to use, streamlined, and minimalist. Not overly complicated at all like other list apps. Plus the checked off sound when checking something off as done is so satisfying! Can also set reminders and alarms. I don’t use this feature that much though, just use as lists to look at to know when I need to do something or go somewhere. I even have lists titled with each month so I know ahead of time what I’m planning to get done in that month. Small ways to stay organized like that are actually really helpful. Been using this app for years!
Useless
by Md011 on 2019/09/28 15:07
I’ve created 3 separate accounts with this app now and gotten one day of use out of each. With each account, the App randomly logs me out and then locks me out claiming that they’ve “detected activity which violates Microsoft User Agreement.” Seeing as I’ve only used the app to make To-Do lists, To-Do lists must violate Microsoft’s user agreement. Every account unlocking attempt is unsuccessful and when I try to contact support, guess what!? I need to LOG IN to my locked account (!?!?) to even get to a human person. Otherwise I am redirected to the same 2 or 3 articles on unlocking my account that have been unsuccessful. Totally useless. Maybe people who use Windows products have better luck. I attempted to use this app with my Gmail account, a new Microsoft account I made specifically to try to use the app, and a second Microsoft outlook account made specifically to try to use the app. Ridiculous.
Good App, Still Needs Improvement
by Meleahj on 2018/05/07 12:01
I really like the look of the app, adding emojis to list titles for quick reference. and the ability to make many lists. I would love to see improvements particularly regarding recurring tasks. While, after quite a bit of hunting, I found how to get repeat reminders for tasks, it’s bothersome that there is not a way to have tasks already populated for each day on the daily task list or set for a specific day. This is the one feature I really miss from Todoist. I’m not that person that thinks clearly before 10am. I need to have my daily list ready the evening before so I have it to follow before my brain really wakes up. I know I can see them in Outlook - just wish I could see my todo’s for the day without having to turn on the laptop and go there.
Love the new look!
by KathyKr on 2019/09/11 00:02
I have used this app for several months now. Although it is buggy sometimes with syncing, App Support suggested logging out of it and logging back in, and that seems to help. I like the My Day feature. I like being able to move things around in the order I want to do them TODAY, while their position in their individual lists where they were created stays the same. I like that the My Day list disappears each day. Mentally it was bogging me down to look at tasks I hadn’t finished. I like to focus on a shorter list and I get more done that way. The tasks aren’t really gone, anyway. You can still find them and add them to your day again easily if it’s a good day to accomplish those particular tasks. I love the new look from the most recent update (yesterday or today). The tasks in the boxes are so much easier visually for me to focus on. Seems odd that something that is visual like that would matter, but it does. MUCH easier to see and sort the tasks. I appreciate that App Support always replies when I report a problem, even if the fix hasn’t been discovered yet.
Really like it!
by Tea&Thee on 2019/08/15 19:40
Have used this app on trial for a few weeks and I’m really liking it. I’ve had no trouble with syncing across apps, and the little things that have bothered me (some mentioned here in other reviews) are being fixed almost weekly. I’m a hardcore OneNote user and I’ve learned that the development team is constantly improving and upgrading their products. I’m sticking with this app and I expect it to be top-notch. My feature request is what someone else mentioned here: to streamline the step-throughs on migrating “My Day” to the next day, and deletions. Also, I’d like to be able to modify/delete the default lists; for example, I’m the only user of this app and I don’t need “Assigned to Me” but can’t delete it. Thanks!
Can’t Believe It. Found My Favorite iOS To Do App. Buy MICROSOFT
by PaulieDC on 2019/03/02 18:42
This is IT, the fast and logical To Do app that I will actually use. I saw a vid by a student showing her favorite apps for medical school and when she said the best To Do was this app by Microsoft I laughed. Not anymore, this is great. Entry is SO fast, type and hit Enter and it’s on the list with a checkbox waiting. You can easily add subtasks, move them to other lists, add them to My Day, mark important and favorites. As soon as I type on my iPad, it’s on my iPhone because you sign in with your Microsoft account which I already have for OneDrive. No surprise it’s at 12K reviews and still 4.6 stars.
Just OK
by Dknelson on 2019/10/04 11:36
I’ve been using Wunderlist for a long time. This is very similar and for the most part, does the job. Microsoft seems to be struggling trying to make it their own. In doing so, they have changed things that just really didn’t need to be changed. Daily and Weekly views are a couple of them. You should be able to click on My Day to see what is scheduled for today. The only way to do that is to select “show in My Day but that should be automatic. If you select show in My Day for your tasks, they all show up there instead of only todays tasks. That makes no sense. I may keep it installed to see if they finally get there but will keep using Wunderlist as long as possible and also check out some others.
Clean design, but unreliable sync
by David4859 on 2018/07/14 17:15
I like the design of the app. It is very simple and easy to use. The My Day feature is great to plan out what to do in a given day. (Would be neat to be able to plan upcoming days in a future update too perhaps.) My main issue with the app, however, is the unreliable syncing. Sometimes, when adding a task on one device (eg my phone), it will show up instantly on another device (eg my computer), which is great. But sometimes there is a significant delay before it shows up, and other times, tasks don’t sync at all. While I do enjoy using the app for its simplicity and My Day feature, I cannot be certain that when I plan my day in the morning on my computer, everything will show up later on my phone. And unfortunately, that’s kind of a deal breaker for now...
Welcome improvement over Wunderlist
by sbNewsom on 2017/11/28 20:47
Most of the time when a big company buys a smaller, useful studio, the product degrades. Look at Skype. But here, Wunderlist and a lot of its features have much improved in To-Do. This isn’t to say there aren’t any downsides. Here I’ll list some features I hope will be added soon. -Custom tasklist background -Dark mode or / Colored themes that replace the bright and glaring white theme set. -Being able to sort the My Day list, either showing incomplete up top and the ability to hide completed. This is the most useful feature of To-Do, so it’d be great to see it improved even more! -Checklists. The one feature useful in Wunderlist, but left out in To-Do. Please bring this in! -Add new to top. This is another Wunderlist feature that isn’t present here. Make it list specific. Have it so you can toggle per list, whether a new task will be added to the bottom or top of the pile. If you can make this a quick toggle ever present onscreen, then even better! Thanks Microsoft! I just hope this gets updated instead of killed off. :)
I don’t like having to sign in constantly
by Lima Rodeo on 2019/10/30 18:48
I have used Wunderlist forever and loved it. It was fine, simple, met my needs. They switched over to ‘to do’ and it isn’t any better, just a different color and font. But it makes me sign in every few times I use it and that drives me crazy! It’s supposed to be a productivity app, a time saver, and for whatever reason it keeps rejecting my password so I’ve had to reset it twice now in the 4 days I’ve had the app. Not really saving me time. There’s no banking or sensitive information on this app, and I log in to my phone with a fingerprint, for crying out loud. Why do I have to constantly log in to access my lists? I’ll go back to wunderlist as long as it is available.
Still disappointed by lack of integration after migration
by BeevdOut on 2019/06/03 17:32
OK what the heck is going on here.I received the invitation to Update in 2017 from Wunderlist to this product. However you’re not maintaining both simultaneously and it seems like Wunderlist is still growing laterally. Are they meant to be two separate tools? Did Microsoft forget about this one? I’m very confused because when I updated I thought my account would be closed on Wunderlist however I’m finding all of my lists from 2017 and prior and the Wunderlist account still active. Which product should I be using?
Some suggestions from a Wunderlist user
by RaulLucky on 2018/07/09 18:40
1. Have pre-defined filtered views: Starred/flagged, Today, Week, overdue. The “My Day” function serves as a manual populated list which creates more work. Having the pre-defined filters will allow us to quickly glance at what we need to do. Remember, to-dos are for quick activities not fussing around with manually populating. Maybe rename the My Day to “flagged/starred” items. Week view should at least show the next 3-4 days. 2. Ability to “star/flag” items without having to open the task. In Wunderlist a star was next to the item. Why not create the same but with the “My Day” icon? 3. Add priorities (H/M/L/1/2/3...) 4. When setting up the Due Date for a task, selecting Next Week pushes to Sunday as opposed to one week from the original date. This should be an easy fix. 5. When adding a “Next Step”, have the cursor ready for another entry. For example, when I enter multiple “Steps”, I have to keep touching the “+ Next Step” for each entry. Just like the existing function of adding multiple To-Dos. Keep up the good work!
I want to give 5!
by NickD on 2018/06/09 04:39
While I love the simplicity, it’s not all there yet for me. I love that it syncs perfectly, for me, to outlook tasks as that’s my main source of task input and planning. I also love that I can see what the developers are working on through the app itself as I can see this will soon become a great companion to outlook and the Microsoft suite in general. I imagine jumping for joy if, once they’ve gotten this app all dialed in and fully developed, an update was made to outlook tasks to give a fresh perspective to a very useful but outdated piece of the puzzle. I’m excited for the prospect of giving this app a 5 star rating in the near future on my long endeavor for the perfect task manager suite.
Unrealized potential
by Wen 3.0 on 2018/03/11 16:18
This app had a lot of promise when first released. I was a heavy Wunderlist user that opted to give the app a chance, knowing it wasn't fully baked yet. Over a year later, I'm still waiting on feature parity and the ability to do relatively simple things like create sublists or share lists and tasks. Wunderlist hasn't been updated and now looks out of date. To-Do no longer looks as modern as when it was released and still lacks key features, which have been in planning forever. Now you have Planner, which looks promising. Unless something changes soon, I'll be looking for alternatives. Apps like Things 3 or Todoist have consistently improved over the years and look much better from a UI and feature perspective.
Promising - But Can’t Trust It Yet
by flybone89 on 2018/01/29 02:18
This is a promising to-do app that I can actually use at work since it’s included in our O365 apps, but will not jump-in completely until it becomes more reliable. The interface is simple, easy to use and has just enough features to meet most of my needs without all the complexity of too many task managers these days. But after just starting to use it I am already seeing bugs like duplicate tasks that are apparently mirrors of each other because when I deleted one of the duplicates they both disappeared! Yikes! I like a simple task manager - but one I can trust!! I can’t trust this one yet. But will keep it on the phone for now and see if a few updates come through before I start trying to use it more.
Formatting
by G-Daddy T on 2019/11/01 14:37
I want to commend Microsoft for finally getting the integration of their multiple tools to work cohesively across various platforms. I noticed when inputting information into the ToDo IOS app or the Outlook desktop application, the spacing and formatting is inconsistent when viewing from the other application. If you start the task within Outlook desktop application and then edit or view the task within ToDo IOS app, the next time you access the task within Outlook desktop application the formatting is gone. This issue also occurs using Outlook on the Web and the Outlook desktop application. Keep up the hard work.
Fix constant login
by fb12322 on 2018/07/14 09:12
I love this app but the only thing making me want to delete it is how much it makes you login over and over again. Apps are not supposed to do that. It’s not a high security email account so there’s no worry. Please make it like every other app we use and let it stay logged in or I can’t handle it anymore. Also, suggestion- could you please make an option of tasks that are able to be set to repeat? If it’s something I need to be reminded of every day, weekly, or monthly I’d like to be able to set it on an auto repeat. With these two things, I’d be 100% in love with this app. Thanks!

Man you guys butchered Wunderlist (honestly not surprised). The import process from Wunderlist to this half baked app did NOT goes as expected. Let’s say goodbye to folders, which was honesty a pretty simple but effective feature from Wunderlist that kept lists neat and organized. However, the main problem that caught my eye was the way subtasks were imported into this crummy app. They were literally imported as text. TEXT. How lazy are your software developers to ignore this pretty obvious problem. I can get behind the idea of “step” vs “subtasks” (sounds a little less robotic tbh), but come on. You’re really going to just import the subtasks from Wunderlist as plain text? That’s just pure laziness. I deleted this piece of garbage and went straight back to Wunderlist. I would not be proud if I developed this unfinished product.
It need to be better as a to-do-list application
by imonewalker on 2019/10/01 19:22
I have many things to do under my attention is focused, so I use the to do list in our daily work and life. I used the To-do List application, but I need to pay 4.99 US dollars per month with calculation your average task per day and other, which is expensive for a software engineer in a developing country. When I give up it, I find just use the checkbox in word is enough for me. So, in my using experience, I think listing your list in the web in PC is better in an application when its don’t have more functions for users.
Junk
by T-2018 on 2018/06/05 03:01
I agree with the other reviewers - it’s insulting that Microsoft has even bothered to release this. It’s scarcely even 1/4 finished. It must be depressing to be one of the developers working on this (assuming they even have a full time dev working on this, which is a big assumption given the glacial rate of progress). No categories import from Outlook, minimal filtering options, etc... I would like to set this up to use Michael Linenberger’s MYN system, or even some other GTD system, but the app is too crippled to allow for that. Seriously how hard is all of this to re-implement? It’s been done many times before, and apparently they have (had?) the developers from the pretty decent 2Day app working on this via an acquihire. Get it together Microsoft. It’s been over a year and this app is still going nowhere.
Biggest issue is needing to re-login frequently
by Demani97 on 2019/08/27 11:15
Outlook doesn’t have any issue staying logged in, but To-do asks practically every other day. Task Management and organization is something I can do on the subway in the morning as part of my prep routine before I get in to the office. But when I go to check my list and get stonewalled by a login screen it’s a little frustrating. Or worse, when I get in and do some work, but then get locked out and THEN find out I lost my additions. More than a little frustrating. The other Office apps don’t ask nearly as often. Until this gets resolved I’m reluctant to fully integrate it into my workflow.
Very good!
by pigstubs on 2019/10/16 12:17
4.5 stars This app is so very close to what I want in a to do list app! I love the ability to add things to the task list as I think of them without cluttering up today’s to do list. I just wish that things I schedule in advance would automatically populate to the My Day list. I’ve read the justification from Microsoft on why this isn’t the way it’s set up, and I get the idea of making reasonable daily lists, but when I schedule something in advance for a specific day, I need to get it done THAT DAY and I would appreciate it if the app helped me remember that automatically.
Work in progress

It’s a pretty decent task management app but nowhere close to being a replacement for Wunderlist. There are still no badge notifications available and I wish the app wouldn’t reset back to home screen if you switch to another app. When I’m checking off items in let’s say a groceries list in the app and you receive a message and decide to read that message and go back to the To Do app, the app reverts back to the home screen as if you’re initially starting the app. Now you have to go through several screens before you’re back on that particular task you’re on before. That’s a major inconvenience to me.
iOS Sync is faulty
by Bshmstr78FS on 2018/04/29 01:37
This has been going on for a while and unfortunately, despite its beautiful, smooth user interface, makes me want to not use it. The problem occurs when you are using your Microsoft/Outlook account sync’ed to your iOS device. Your tasks are already sync’ed to iOS native Reminders app. When you try to change items in the To-Do app, it changes the times of scheduled items on your Reminders app. For example, if there is an alarm to an event set at a certain date 9:00 in the morning, To-Do app changes this to the previous day at 5:00 PM. Why? This simple issue makes the app unusable for me. Such a shame.
Solid start, but when will feature updates arrive?
by WannaBelieveInThings on 2017/12/30 21:05
When the preview version of this app was released back in April 2017, it was off to a great start. The app was simple to use and the design was elegant. However, I wish the developers had continued to iterate on their strong start through releasing new features over this past year. They haven’t done much other than clean up bugs. I don’t understand what is taking so long given that this Microsoft To-Do app is the reincarnation of the Wunderlist app. Wunderlist had a broader menu of features than Microsoft To-Do. Why is it taking so long to recode these Wunderlist features into the new To-Do app?
App is crashing unexpectedly
by P Pat566 on 2019/09/12 20:39
I use the app mostly for my work and I am logged in using my work O365 account. With recent update and this happened with older UI as well that app would crash when trying to set due date or reminder for a task. However with the recent update app crashing has increased and app is always crashing when I try to change the theme. Completing uninstalling and reinstalling does not fix the crashes. Also, restarting the phone does not help. I am using the app because flagged email integration is my go to feature. Please fix the crashes. Also appreciate the teams hard work that has gone behind making this useful app. Thanks!
