Have really gotten attached but...
by NC Surf City on 2021/05/15 12:02
I have really gotten attached to this software. Anytime a thought or plan of action pops in my head, Todoist is my go-to app. I started a new position and wanted an app that would expand and grow with me. I purchased this app and began my quest. I really like the ability to schedule anything at anytime, have it recur, and alert. I’ve been building this database for about six months now, and it is still my go to app. So... remember that commercial on tv that shows a guy just clicking on the internet. He clicks, and clicks and clicks, only to get a response that says “ you have reached the end of the internet”? Well, I just had that moment with this app. I was in the middle of preparing a new hire orientation when I received a message that I have reached my limit for active projects. What’s up with that?? Message to developers: please resolve this situation and remove limitations altogether. I really do not want to archive “as the message suggested”. My memory is not such that I would thin to look at archived files! That’s why I bought the app!
Great tool
by don_m nc on 2021/05/15 10:36
The best organization tool I have worked with. It has replaced my DayTimer that I’ve used for over 28 years. I highly recommend.
The best for GTD
by iPadupadwepad on 2021/05/14 18:11
Terrific app. Handles all my GTD tasks with ease.
Todoist
by beckerusa on 2021/05/11 17:28
Always on the search for the optimal GTD program. Was hooked several years to omnifocus and things and stumbled upon todoist by chance. Well, for me the best presently, better file and email integration, top design and flexibility
Scamming Traitors
by Tommy X. on 2021/05/11 17:03
How can I get anything done with 5 projects? Forcing us to pay for premium perks is absolutely outrageous. I understand more than 10 but 5????
Awesome app
by chriscera on 2021/05/11 10:58
I’ve used many products for almost 2 decades, and this is by far the best. They keep adding features to enhance usability too.
Love it!
by DrLando on 2021/05/10 12:26
Best, most versatile ToDo app I’ve ever used. Great job!
no reminder notifications on free plan
by RohitRohit on 2021/05/09 23:34
it lets me set reminders but doesn’t tell me with notifications because apparently that is not available until you upgrade to premium plan. doesn’t it defeat the purpose of setting timed reminder task altogether, in that case ?
Untrustworthy
by TheBrewerman on 2021/05/09 00:22
Developer switched the free plan from supporting 30 projects down to 5. No email or announcement. Don’t trust this company at all anymore. All they care about is forcing you to pay for the Pro version.
Works For Me
by wishjr on 2021/05/08 23:49
Have tried many To do list and activity programs over several decades. This the only one I have stayed with, because it works for me.
Amazing
by Hanna.I on 2021/05/08 06:00
Great app. I highly recommend getting the prime version. Very useful and simple.
Works wonders
by Mkestrel on 2021/05/06 22:11
So clean and easy to use. Everything I need to do I enter and cross it off once complete. Very satisfying
It helps a lot.
by Jackedupandup on 2021/05/06 00:13
I lose the pieces of paper that I write things down on, but I do not lose my I pad. Todoist is a huge help in remembering what needs to get done! Great App!
Amazing app
by Best option on 2021/05/05 12:11
Toggl has made a huge difference in my professional and personal life. As a pastor, student, husband and father I have too many balls in the air, but Toggl helps me keep track of all of them. The professional version is well worth the money!
Reminder
by Not working .. e.e on 2021/05/04 23:33
I used this app religiously and luckily it wasn't until my semester was over that I realized they got rid of the reminders function. Well, "got rid of". Now it's in the pro subscription. Why is the one thing this app is good for being included in the subscription? It was doing great with the amount of restrictions the free version had! I'll be deleting this and I guess I am on yet another hunt to find just the right reminder app again during my month break out of school. $35.99/yr for a subscription? Like, what the heck? Hopefully one day I learn to make my own app so I don't have to deal with these cash-grabbing apps. 😒
Simply does not work
by violet_pigeon on 2021/05/04 17:01
I got Todoist yesterday, and tried to upgrade to an annual subscription. The in app purchase did not work, and it fails with an unknown error. Not only that, when I try to use the app as it is, I keep seeing a pop up saying “There’s no information available for in app purchase. Please try again later 21104”. When I contacted support, they tried blaming it on me by saying “ That seems to be an App Store error. “So I’m out of $35, the app doesn’t work even in the basic (free) mode, and the support is unhelpful. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GARBAGE AT ALL COSTS.
Second Best "To Do" App!
by Could not think of a cool nickname on 2021/05/03 21:18
There must be a better app than "Todoist" out there but I haven't found it yet. This app blew Things 3 and the astrocious and bloated Omnifocus 3 away. Stop looking and get this app. Now!
5 year long patron, best todo list app I’ve used
by refaaj on 2021/05/03 06:57
I’ve gone through a number of todo list apps, and this is by far my favorite. The feature list is insanely long, organization is a breeze, and their customer support is top notch. 10/10 recommend
Swipe feature
by Ace398 on 2021/05/02 23:51
Current state: app allow swipe to select, complete or schedule. Desired state: allow swipe to delete task. I like having a plan of action. If things don’t go the way they should, I write out a task to course correct. However, often times things go just as planned and there is no need for that additional task. So often I have tasks that I want to delete because they are no longer needed to be done. I would not mark these as complete because I didn’t “do” the task. It just wasn’t needed anymore. Swiping left or right to delete the task would make clearing this unactionable stuff faster.
I am livid
by Alex is a dinosaur on 2021/05/01 14:55
I’ve been using this app to keep track of all my daily and weekly tasks and as off the update two days ago REMINDERS are now part of the pro paid plan? This isn’t cool. I used this because the Reminders app that comes with the iPhone is terrible and honestly, this is useless to me too now. I can’t throw money at every single app on my phone.
Love this app!
by Nomo12345678 on 2021/04/30 18:00
Fast, keyboard shortcuts are good, nice ios and macos support
Not, it’s still “free”
by lschaef09 on 2021/04/30 16:37
Instead of making todoist worth upgrading to premium for, they chose to only allow 5 projects to force you to upgrade. I’m a multi year todoist subscriber who has had premium off and on over that time. I’ll be deleting my account due to the blatant cash grab. Good riddance.
Scam
by Spenje on 2021/04/30 15:34
App said I had reached my 5 project limit in the free version. I paid the upgrade fee then it said I had reached me 5 “active” project limit, I needed to upgrade to “Business level”.
Virtually useless now
by Sweatpantspapi on 2021/04/30 02:35
Company got greedy, and now wants you to to pay to set reminders, which is 90% of the purpose of this app. Don't support this type of behavior, plenty of other options for apps of this type.
Amazing

I love this app
Removing functionality for its users
by JJ0185 on 2021/04/29 18:17
We regrettably moved to this app when our beloved Wunderlist was no longer supported. It has been tolerable at best, with ugly interface, non-intuitive design and is clearly meant more for an office like/scheduling mindset and not a day to day list app for groceries, etc which we tried to use it for. For example trying to write “1/2” as in “1/2 a cup” is autocorrected to a date “January 2nd” prompting add to calendar every time...so annoying. Again, we tolerated this app, but today I get an email saying they are GIVING us MORE features from their subscription service, how generous! However, they are REMOVING the ability to make more lists (which they call “Projects”) which is the PRIMARY FEATURE OF A LIST APP! We never wanted or asked for the other features. This app is useless to me now. Will find a replacement, of which there are many! What a shameless way to attempt to squeeze money from the people already using your app. It is truly appalling and you should be ashamed. Instead of being creative and developing new features someone would actually want to pay for you are now putting limits on the people who already using the app and changing the way it functions for them. Gross.
Reminder Alert?
by Roqmo on 2021/04/29 15:13
You need to advertise that there’s an “in-app purchase” here. It states that I cannot activate the reminder alert unless I upgrade to pro???
I think it’s a great app and it does exactly what is says
by nottakendjifidjrne on 2021/04/29 14:36
I don’t do many reviews, but I really like this app I really like how you can organize your projects and different tasks at the same time and it’s super convenient. You can’t go wrong and even if you only want a simple todo list it works great!
Really enjoy the app and helps with productivity
by ACCHUIGRURGUCGRUGFURGF on 2021/04/29 14:34
It’s great
Now limits number of projects
by Stasia-Marie on 2021/04/28 19:21
It used to be great, there was an update that limits the number of projects to 5. I would no longer recommend this app. There are much better ones out there.
Lovely
by SpecialllKayyy on 2021/04/28 15:58
There are not many apps that I would ever pay for but this is 100% one of them.
Crash on launch
by jeeves78 on 2021/04/27 19:42
My app just updated, and the app crashes while presenting the splash screen. This is happening consistently and the app does not run
Next level
by areebsalim on 2021/04/27 06:18
I can’t get over how good this app is. After endless trial and error I have finally stumbled upon the perfect app. The flexibility. The organization. The customization. This app is everything I needed and more!!
Amazing
by Today4Him on 2021/04/26 13:41
Todoist is fantastic! It’s intuitive, easy to use and fun. It has all the bells and whistles for complex time management needs and can also be easily used on a smaller, more personal level. It syncs flawlessly across all my devices. I couldn’t be more satisfied.
No Family Sharing? False Advertising
by spedwardzz on 2021/04/26 04:41
I love the app, but I’m disappointed that Family Sharing doesn’t appear to work? It’s advertised as such, and after paying for the annual subscription, my Apple family can’t benefit from my pro subscription I’m finding out. I mean, is that not false advertising? Right in the store under apps that work with family share subscriptions: Todoist is listed, and it is also shown as an icon for supported features on the app page itself. Please address this, I’m sure I’m not the only one who has realized this. Greatly appreciated and in all honesty, great app! 5 stars once addressed, 1 star for attention hopefully. If this feature does work, please make it intuitive and explain how to enable this. Yes, I’ve gone through all my family sharing and subscription sharing settings. Please don’t ask me to troubleshoot my settings, that isn’t the issue.
Stood the test of time
by rabooch on 2021/04/25 01:01
I spent a lot of time researching the perfect productivity tool. I tried everything from journals, calendars, alarms, and eventually found Todoist. I instantly enjoyed the simple UI, reminders, scheduling, and labeling features. I’ve been actively using the app for almost 2 years now. It remains the single best productivity tool that I’ve ever used. It syncs up to my apple calendar as all days events but the best feature is the number of notifications on the app icon indicating the number of tasks scheduled for the current day. It’s an incredibly subtle reminder every time I open my phone. They also do a great job at improving it over time. The kanban boards were an awesome feature recently added and an example that the team intends for it to be more than a checkbox type of todo list. Keep up the great work, Doist!

Great Task Management App But ...
by shayankasaei on 2021/04/22 13:43
First off, thank u so much for making such an amazing app. I personally used to move back and forth between different apps that I thought could fit in my workflow, but at the end of the road, not of them did, until almost a year ago that I started using Todoist and man, that changed everything. But still it's laking one annoying feature in the "schedule" section, and that is to automate planning tasks for odd days or even days by simply writing "every odd day" at that magical textbox. doing it would be much appreciated.
Happy with this app😂
by onlyterra on 2021/04/22 09:15
So far, this app has what I’ve been looking for. It’s time consuming when you can’t find the right app (install-try-fail-remove), but I got lucky this!
Terrible design
by fjalkdj on 2021/04/22 07:30
Why is that when I press the + sign to add a new task, 70% of the time, it thinks I’m trying to physically drag the plus icon around? What a monumentally stupid and user hostile feature. Also, why is it literally impossible to “indent” a task and make it a sub task of another task in the app? That’s a feature I use all the time in desktop. Extremely frustrating user experience. :(
Switcheru
by last.first on 2021/04/20 23:08
I had a subscription that allowed me to write notes to a to-do item. But Todoist moved that function to a higher subscription level, requiring me to pay more to keep the function. Instead I am leaving Todoist for an app with more integrity.
Great app but need some updates
by Iris... on 2021/04/20 16:58
I love the sorting options, but when you sort by priority you can no longer adjust the order of the tasks within that priority range. Very frustrating.
Loved it until I didn’t!!!!
by Deborah's Iphone on 2021/04/20 02:04
Horrible!!!
I would give this 5 stars but..
by Bre8pq on 2021/04/18 00:52
I love the app because after you set a task on a specific due date, it will e-mail you. I like having this reminder but wish you could set things bi-weekly or monthly but there’s not a repeat option.
Sync unreliable
by Glassman3309 on 2021/04/17 19:30
Wonderful when it syncs, a pain when it doesn’t
Good but some improvements to make
by rock&rollruinedmylife on 2021/04/16 19:32
Would be nice to be able to have a monthly view of tasks, not daily. I’d like to see what my big tasks are for the month, be able to filter by priority(s) or tag(s) or project(s). I’d also like to be able to add DEPENDENCIES!!!! I don’t want to see the tasks that I can’t do at the moment mixed in with the ones I can. Also please allow us to pick any custom color (like an RGB slider). Other apps that integrate with this app allow for that, so feels behind the times and less compatible. Finally, please make it easier for us to undo when the app automatically turns a date written in our task item into its due date. I don’t want to disable this automatic feature, because about half the time I enter a date that is in fact the date I want it to be set to. The way Fantastical handles it is a step in the right direction.
It just works so well
by NurtureWarrior on 2021/04/16 02:49
I recently took on a course called Mission control that recommends the GTD concept with a twist.All things that need to be done must either be scheduled, in the proverbial waiting room to be scheduled within the next two weeks, and not scheduled. I found I could label individual tasks as “next up which fits into that second level. Everything else is either scheduled (including scheduled as periodic and scheduled as recurring) or not scheduled. The one thing this course adds that I don’t know if there is a place to put is the idea that every action should have noted my my motivation for doing it i.e. what’s in it for me or those I serve by doing that task.
Cannot synch with iPhone
by In BJ ; app is bad on 2021/04/15 04:33
Horrible product.
Great app!
by Scott Schuler on 2021/04/15 00:35
I use this all the time. It told me I’m in the top 1% of users based on the number of tasks I’ve completed on it. It isn’t 5 stars only because I wish there were more stats available. But beside that, I LOVE the user interface, ease between computer and mobile, and use it literally EVERY day! You should download, do a free premium trial, then pay for it. It’s definitely worth it for me
Deceivers ;)
by HugeHum on 2021/04/14 23:28
Todoist website displays that comments are included in the free plan. But in the iOS app, this function is available only to premium users. 🤨
Too many “premium features”
by Paul Denisevich on 2021/04/13 11:43
So I just accidentally marked some task as completed and it’s a “premium feature” to view all completed tasks. Are you f kidding me?
Deep Change
by laura85963 on 2021/04/13 09:14
This is helping me slowly but surely get organized and transform my life.
Awesome Program
by kdchavez on 2021/04/11 16:42
This is an awesome program & I use it all the time. I don’t have a family, so I’m glad this app doesn’t have all the other stuff other apps have for family schedules & such. I’m also not a big time executive who needs a bunch of other features, keeping track of meetings & clients. I’m a simple personal on disability, who likes to keep track of projects around the house & her shopping list. I also use it for my part-time position I have working at home to keep track of what reports I need to finish. The other added features I love is the ability to use it with my Apple Watch I just won in a contest & the ability to use it with Alexa, which being disabled & having mobility issues, this is a major convenience. The one bad thing, which is why I gave it only 4 stars, is the inability to use some of the features without buying the premium version. Being on disability, once the rent & the rest of the monthly necessities are paid, I don’t even have enough left over to go out to lunch, let alone pay subscription fees. I don’t mind paying one time charges if the program was worth it, such as this one, since I know the time & energy that goes into the development, but those of us who are mostly on limited, fixed income, who also must still work part-time to pay bills, don’t have the money to pay any kind of subscription fees. Anyways, that’s all. Just wish I had access to the other features, so I could really utilize the app to its full potential.
Extremely intuitive and all the features
by Zenabelly on 2021/04/10 17:00
This is my dream “to-do list” app! It’s very intuitive to navigate, simple yet complex that it has all the features you’d ever want to really organize everything. Seriously, I’m actually in shock at how perfect it is!
This helps my anxiety
by cwhy89 on 2021/04/08 14:45
So I deal with chronic anxiety, and if you do too you’ll probably relate to the constant sense of worry that pervades every moment of your life. I recently started using to do lists to put down every single task or event I could possibly worry about, categorized by my core values (well-being, family, home maintenance, volunteering). So now when I find myself worrying just to worry, when my brain is looking for something to worry about, I simple remind myself that it’s all mapped out on my to do list and it’s all being taken care of. It’s helped reduce my daily anxiety levels a good bit. I started off using the free iPhone Reminders app, which worked alright, but it didn’t offer the additional organizational structure that Todoist offers. Now I simply look at the Today section of Todoist and everything is conveniently laid out in order of priority for the day, which allows me to be super productive. It’s also really easy to edit tasks, push them off to another date, etc. and I really love the “Upcoming” list that shows you the future tasks coming up soon. I love the feature to make custom filters as well. This a very robust app that has helped me take hold of my daily life and be more productive with less effort.
Bad development work
by Niravkumar on 2021/04/07 21:10
Even after paying for subscription, I don’t get any premium features and app is still ask me money to upgrade for premium features. Tried so many times to refresh but same results. This was disappointing 🤬
Great app
by Ratonvel on 2021/04/07 11:17
Great app to get your whole life organized, I strongly recommend it .
Awesome ... just needs one thing
by Jefin Jose on 2021/04/06 16:57
I really appreciate Todoist and literally couldn’t life without it. It organizes every aspect of my life and have accounts through all my Google accounts. Despite its greatness, Todoist needs one last feature that would make it the one stop productivity app: a calendar view. There is of course the upcoming view, but seeing all your tasks for future days would be really helpful. I not only check the tasks for tomorrow, I check the events I have on upcoming days for planning. Scrolling through the upcoming view makes this a little inconvenient. Otherwise, the service is great!
Noice!
by ashkanmoeini on 2021/04/06 12:09
I used bunch of other apps, hand books and etc, nothing is as good as this app. I actually can get things done with this. Amazing stuff. Thank you guys!

by nickharsh on 2021/04/02 18:03
I have been using Todoist now for over 7 years and there is no way that I could stay organized without it. My wife and I use it for shopping, vacation planning, and work. Todoist truly helps us stay on top of our lives every day.
Spent an hour trying to figure anything out and bailed
by trixy1973 on 2021/04/01 23:01

Keeps me on track so well. Couldn’t get my tasks done daily without this! So many features too.
Best there is
by Tommywal on 2021/03/29 08:55
I've tried all the organizational apps available and this is the best by far. I'd recommend this for anyone trying to keep their personal life organized through someone using this to organize their work team. This Todoist app syncs across all platforms and is a breeze to use. I started with a free membership a few years ago and now pay for six premium memberships for my management. Well worth the annual cost.

Good app, too bad premium is a subscription service
by Carlemagne93 on 2021/03/24 15:39
I use Todoist daily to keep track of my day and tasks. The app truly is very helpful. I would upgrade to the premium except it’s a subscription rather than a one time fee. There’s too many subscription-based payment models on the market already.
Way too completed
by Deborahlee52 on 2021/03/24 02:52
When it becomes too much of a job and too intricate to find out how to maneuver inside a program and it becomes one of my greater “to do’s“ then it is time to look elsewhere.
The best app ever!!!
by puppy unicorn 🐶🦄 on 2021/03/22 19:33
This app is really organized and super duper helpful. The app daily send you messages of you are late and specifically there is no adds. It’s a great app to use for to do lists and i have been using it since the past year and it helped me out so much especially in this COVID time. But i love this app.....
Perfect except for one minor thing
by ben salley on 2021/03/21 19:46
Is everything I could want from a to-do list app. The only thing that could make it better would be if the widgets refreshed more frequently as they seem to display older info unless you go into the app and exit back out. Other than that this app is awesome and I’m always excited for more features to be added!
Another and greedy trash
by Okhyfguu on 2021/03/21 19:30
Deleted the app in a few minutes. A small feature like Reminder requires premium? are you kidding me
Loses data
by NotAnApplePerson on 2021/03/21 16:31
I don't understand why they can't get sync to work! In prior versions, the whole app would inexplicably and silently stop syncing. Now, you get a warning indicator, saying the "updates didn't sync" and allowing you to discard them. Is that progress? If you're looking for a todo list, PICK SOMETHING ELSE. Losing data is a deal breaker.
Fantastic App
by Avery LeMmon on 2021/03/18 19:31
Todoist is by far the best to-do list app I’ve ever used. They make adjustments/provide upgrades regularly which is huge for me. I’ll be using this app for a long time, if not forever. The only suggestion I have: it would be awesome to choose if you want the “add task” section at the top or bottom of your list. I sort by priority ascending and would love to easily add tasks from the top instead of having to scroll down regularly.

Cant delete app without your google password. Seems easy enough unless you forgot your password.
Long Due
by mulleranjos on 2021/03/17 15:54
Import from Reminders. This is a long due issue that should have been implemented already... other than that, best to do App by far.
Best out there
by waterdog4927 on 2021/03/17 12:38
I have used most of the to do apps out there and this is by far my favorite. I especially appreciate that it is fully functional in its free version. The premium has so many great additional functions, it’s easy to want/need to upgrade.
Best to do list I have used
by Nicholaslange on 2021/03/17 01:39
I may not have used them all, but this is my preferred one.
Todoist
by Mr. Oppoisteofshort on 2021/03/16 13:05
Good app overall, but I find their notifications and reminders to be lackluster because they don’t do enough to get my attention. Also, I’m sure I’m not using all the functionality, but I don’t see any “walk me through” options available. Premium is worth it, but it’s still gonna make you work.
Nice to have the cross platform clients
by Tongster2 on 2021/03/16 11:13
Seamlessly switch between Mac and cell phone.
Great but could be better
by bahemoth on 2021/03/16 10:12
This is by far the greatest to do list app I’ve ever seen, the boards are a cool idea and it’s so innovative. The only thing I would like to see added (or it might already be there) is the ability to auto schedule things in advance. For example say I want to add something to every Monday, or read every Wednesday I want to ability to schedule it continuously on auto. The only way I’ve seen to do this is to schedule it manually a few weeks into the future which is kind of a pain.
Not sure
by pkma46 on 2021/03/15 23:39
Not Sure yet if this todo list is simple enough to be useful. I want to have a month to use and to see if it is helpful but not irritating.
Best todo app
by icanfathom on 2021/03/15 19:59
I’ve used quite a few, and Todoist is the best BY FAR. The natural language parsing for due dates and reminders is a killer feature. It also syncs quickly and flawlessly between devices. Overall a fantastic experience.
Very convenient
by deeachee on 2021/03/15 19:47
Great place to keep track of everything. So easy to update.
Checked off
by phatphatphat on 2021/03/15 01:16
I get satisfaction out of seeing that I did get some stuff done...can u put the checked off things at the bottom of my list checked off so I feel like at least I did those things, then when I’m done acknowledging myself for getting those done I can delete than if I want? Thanks. This is such a useful app for we who are a little overwhelmed!!!! 😀
Thank Goodness!
by saxaxe on 2021/03/10 19:46
I was a loyal user of Apple’s built in Reminders. But when my personal to do list disappeared one day due to a software upgrade, I needed help fast. Todoist to the rescue!!! I love being able to type a due date without scrolling or clicking, I love the organization with an inbox and projects, and I love feeling like nothing is slipping through the cracks. Thanks, Todoist. You’re the best!
A bug on the scheduled tasks
by Gaurav Satwalkar on 2021/03/10 15:01
I noticed that a scheduled task due “today” still shows “tomorrow” on the section’s list view. if I pop-it up, then it shows “today” thus have conflicting statuses. I should have captured a screen shot but missed it in hurry. Is it a known issue to be resolved? if yes, it is definitely high priority. I will revise my review and a star is only meant for this feature.
Really wanted to love it, discovered this...
by Shmacto on 2021/03/10 06:10
We all have tasks that we have to complete regularly. Morning routines. Weekend routines etc. In my case these are chemotherapy sessions. We call them reoccurring tasks. They are super critical to maintain a balanced schedule without forgetting our basic repetitive responsibilities. Unfortunately I discovered that when you set up a reoccurring task on Todoist it basically only creates 1 single task and it keeps resetting its due date every time upon completion of this individual task. This means that the task, at every given moment will only show ONCE. If you examine your schedule more then one reoccurrence time period ahead any further future reoccurring tasks will NOT show. Why is this a problem? Well imagine having a dozen of reoccurring tasks. All due every day, week or month. How could one possibly plane more then the reoccurrence time period ahead if they can’t SEE the scheduled tasks ahead? How can one confirm a doctor appointment? or confirm a job interview? Or responsibly plan anything ahead? It’s a really basic need when it comes to scheduling... It is so obvious that your schedule ahead should SHOW, and YES even if it’s a reoccurring task. Todoist replied to me that I could integrate their software with a Google Calendar in order to view my future reoccurring tasks. To me it sounds absurd to have to use another scheduling platform to be able to properly and responsibly schedule ourselves especially when Google Calendar as a free app offers this basic functionality of being able to VIEW your future reoccurring tasks while Todoist a paid app of $40/year does not offer this basic functionality. A bit of a shame and disappointment from such a potentially sophisticated and well designed app.
Easy to use and important to see daily
by gljtad on 2021/03/09 18:29
When something pops into my head, the app goes into my head. Fill it out !
👍
by Al-Ray on 2021/03/09 15:39
This app is simple and gives me exactly what I’m looking for.
wonderful experience
by baboonwei on 2021/03/07 09:56
todolist is a lovely app. 第一次使用就爱上了她带来的体验。为用户考虑的很完善,界面美观,性能稳定。
It doesn't have recurring task option
by fatima_mo on 2021/03/07 00:04
I like this app a lot. But I wish it had an option to add a recurrent task. I do some tasks daily. So I need to add that task one by one for everyday, it would be much easier if there was an option to add a recurrent task!
Simply the best so far for professionals with date critical needs
by Dvlrbbt on 2020/09/23 11:56
If you’re just looking for an app to help you plan your garage cleaning and family vacation there are better looking and simpler options out there. If you need an app for professional use, where due dates and times are not merely “goals” (yeah I’m looking at you “GTD” method) but are actual real world cannot be missed deadlines, this is the app. If you need an app that allows you to have those dates appear in your calendar (your calendar, not just the app’s upcoming forecast of events) this is your app (the Fantastical 2 way sync is killer). If you prefer not to spend more time trying to figure out how to do things in the app than actually doing them (did anyone say “Omnifocus“) this is the one. Collaboration, ability to easily add notes and attachments on both the project and task level, straightforward interface, relatively easy to learn functions with good web documentation, TEMPLATES (a feature that for some inexplicable reason other apps seem to openly resist adding but is a no-brainer for those who have the same task and deadline structure for multiple projects, like I don’t know pretty much anyone who is in business and/or works with standardized contracts), sub-tasks, multiple reminder options, this one does it right. You will not see the benefit of the forgoing without the premium subscription, but $38 a year is a bargain for the features and functionality you get.
Best Task Manager I’ve Used to Date
by Link100 on 2020/04/26 13:38
It’s remarkable to me ToDoist isn’t ranked higher on the productivity charts because it easily eclipses anything that I’ve ever used before. It’s gorgeous (I prefer dark mode, but there are more themes) It integrates great with the GTD methodology (my preference) but whatever your system, it’s robust enough that you should be able to integrate it well. I love what they did with Karma, their gamified point system (but I would like to see this expanded). You can tell that the creators stay up-to-date on best practices and they regularly update a pretty informative blog that is enjoyable for a productivity junky like me. I used it for 24 hours and pretty much decided I NEEDED premium which is easily the best $3 I spend every month. It’s important to distinguish between what this is and is not though. It does not teach you how to be productive. It is not a good place to do high level goal setting, visioning, and planning. It is not a calendar. It also doesn’t focus you on the task at hand. The app is a Task Filing System. It is a utility that will enhance your workflow with those other things. It will work great for anyone who needs to make a to-do list, but those who chose to educate themselves on actual task management theory will get the most out of it. I hope it hits the top of the charts!
Awesome Program
by kdchavez on 2021/04/11 16:42
This is an awesome program & I use it all the time. I don’t have a family, so I’m glad this app doesn’t have all the other stuff other apps have for family schedules & such. I’m also not a big time executive who needs a bunch of other features, keeping track of meetings & clients. I’m a simple personal on disability, who likes to keep track of projects around the house & her shopping list. I also use it for my part-time position I have working at home to keep track of what reports I need to finish. The other added features I love is the ability to use it with my Apple Watch I just won in a contest & the ability to use it with Alexa, which being disabled & having mobility issues, this is a major convenience. The one bad thing, which is why I gave it only 4 stars, is the inability to use some of the features without buying the premium version. Being on disability, once the rent & the rest of the monthly necessities are paid, I don’t even have enough left over to go out to lunch, let alone pay subscription fees. I don’t mind paying one time charges if the program was worth it, such as this one, since I know the time & energy that goes into the development, but those of us who are mostly on limited, fixed income, who also must still work part-time to pay bills, don’t have the money to pay any kind of subscription fees. Anyways, that’s all. Just wish I had access to the other features, so I could really utilize the app to its full potential.
I don’t all to do list, this is by far my favorite
by MrWinky on 2017/12/20 04:20
I’ve used every to do list out there. Every complex, GTD, you name it I’ve used it. I’ve used it on every platform from windows, mac , iPad, iPhone. There are couple things that make this one of the best. It’s not perfect, but I’d rather have a good list that is visually intuitive, consistent across all platforms, simplifies complex situations, but still allows for the complexity. More importantly they are very fairly priced, for the incredible amount of features that other to do organization lists attempt and charge more for. Whether it is the desktop, the iPhone or the iPad, their interface is excellent and consistent. It’s very easy To maintain a to do list when one is calm or has few projects. But when I am stressed, and have a lot to put in the lists quickly, ToDoIst make it easy, intuitive, consistent so that I actually want to use the application. In simple terms, this is the first application that as my lists and projects and tasks add up, I don’t feel visually overwhelmed and don’t dread opening the application to see what’s awaiting me..
Just started using this- will give final rating in a few months l:
by kimandfamily on 2020/06/16 05:56
A few days ago I downloaded Todoist because 1) the app was recently approved to be installed on my work iPhone issued by my employer and 2) I also need an effective organizational method for personal use. Until I started using Todoist my life was countless Post-Its at my work and home workstations as well as Calendar iPhone Entries/Alerts that had to be manually duplicated between my Work iPhone and Personal iPhone. As a bonus I upgraded my account (it’s created under my personal email) to Premium as a gift to myself cuz my birthday is in a couple of weeks. :-D I already love this app: before I knew I had a lot to juggle but now that I actually SEE the amount of incomplete tasks on my plate it’s a miracle that I haven't dropped more balls than I usually do! I'm already sleeping better because I'm not up in bed half the night staring at the ceiling and worrying that I have forgotten or will forget to do something important. Go ahead and upgrade to premium - a year costs about $34 which is less than most of you who are considering downloading this app spend on BS items in a week- you know this.! Free yourself! - Kim
Best I’ve tried (and I’ve tried a lot)
by MoonUnit137 on 2020/05/16 19:20
Todoist is full featured and actively developed with many thoughtful surprises, large and small throughout. Over the last ten years I’ve tried many task management apps and methodologies. I most recently tried several of the major ones a few months ago. Todoist is the best I’ve tried. It’s elegant to use if you want to keep it simple and has the capabilities necessary to implement a more rigorous task management system like GTD. This ability to keep it simple and facilitate complexity is important, I think, as it takes a while and some experimentation for a person to settle on a task management methodology that works best for them, often drawing from several different methodologies. Other popular task management apps are more limited, and after using them simply for a while and realizing you want more, the features that would allow you to do more aren’t present and you have to move to another app. This has happened to me a few times and was a waste of time. I wish I’d just gone with Todoist from the start.
I’m telling everyone about this great app
by HomeManager on 2019/06/10 13:01
Whether you work outside the home, have a home business, or are a stay at home mom or student, this app and a few good systems can transform your productivity. I use a conglomeration of methods that I gleaned from 3 books: Getting Things Done, The 12 Week Year, and Do More Better. Those foundational books combined with this app have tripled my productivity already. I’ve tried several others, from OmniFocus to Cozi to Habit Tracker and more. I manage a home business, am a home school teacher, as well as manage my house. This is the first app that has given me the freedom to use my systems in an effective manner. My stress has reduced as I’ve found an app that lets me dump all of those tasks from my head and place them in an app that I trust to organize them in a manner that keeps me from missing anything. I wish it was a bit more intuitive in applying GTD, but I’ve managed some work arounds for setting up Reviews and other important GTD basics. Give this a try. You wont be sorry.
Good, but needs undo feature
by Ktscopes on 2020/04/11 11:22
This app is intuitive and has good features. I only have the free version, but I have been happy except for one thing, the importance of which is escalating. Unless I am blind, Todoist has no undo feature. So if I accidentally delete a task I can’t get it back. This has happened to me more than once and the last time my task had a long list of subtasks. All disappeared. Given that the method for deletion is to click the circle to the left of the task, when in other apps a circle in that spot is used for selecting, it seems there ought to be an undo. Otherwise, it’s a great app. Update: The developer contacted me with instructions to use while viewing my project. I don’t have a project, just a simple list, and when I click on the three dot icon at the top right, I do not see “Show completed tasks,” but only “Select tasks.” Update again. The developer contacted me a second time and confirmed that deleting a task can only be done in project view, which was disappointing. But the developer’s commitment to communication is splendid, which counts for a lot in my book.
Finally almost perfect
by CoreyIn140 on 2019/10/24 15:47
The new overhaul of Todoist has made it feel fast, reliable, and easy. Honestly, it’s the best thing to happen to Todoist since they released 1.0. This is now my go-to recommendation for anyone looking for an easy, understandable, and reliable task manager because it can be simple if someone doesn’t want to spend too much time dealing with it, or robust if someone is looking for something to center their entire life around. There are only a couple features missing, like matching system dark mode (so I can choose one of the fun color themes for the header but still have a dark screen), setting projects to always sort by a criteria (so every time I open them I don’t have to click sort by date), and setting a start time for my day (so when the clock rolls over to midnight I don’t suddenly have a red bubble with a giant list of things to do, I should be able to choose the time of day that starts). If these three features were added, I don’t think I could come up with a single complaint. Todoist on iOS really is that close to perfect at this point.
Want to love it BUT...
by TreehousePJ on 2018/12/10 13:40
Overall I like the program and how it operates BUT the reporting is pretty much non existent. I have been requesting a simple report for Completed Task by Project for a range of dates since I started using this program over 3 years ago. I can’t think of a more basic easy to program report that would benefit many people. They tell me to us IFTTT (which I tried ...doesn’t work well or give me a concise format) or export to spreadsheet (just something else to do). Why not just add a Report button where one selects project and entered range of dates ...vu wa la...like magic! I don’t want to switch programs but I am currently looking ... to me this is such an obvious feature I just assumed (my bad) that I would have this reporting capability. While I’m on a roll, my second pet peeve, on the iPad, when you go into a Project, everything is sorted by date entered and you can’t change it... nobody cares about date entered ...we need due date order default or at least the ability to change sort order.
Sanity saving
by CineasteSF on 2019/10/13 06:35
I don’t usually write app reviews, but Todoist has been invaluable for me. Until now, I’d gotten along just fine keeping track of things by using a handwritten weekly list of tasks, supplemented by an ongoing list of tasks in my calendar. I’m semi-retired, and don’t have that much to keep track of. However, I recently assumed responsibility for coordinating the care of a friend who needs 24/7 care, dealing with all her insurance, doctor appointments, managing her finances, and many other critical tasks that were overwhelming. I turned to Todoist and it was remarkably easy to learn to use. Not everything was completely intuitive, but the ability to organize tasks into separate projects, and the flexibility of viewing tasks allows me to manage more than I could hope to without the use of the app. The seamless coordination between using it on my iPhone and iPad means I can add or review tasks whenever and wherever I am. I paid for the upgrade and it’s well worth it to be able to add comments.
Fantastic Update
by JJdizzle778 on 2019/10/23 15:31
Been using Todoist for almost 3 years now I’ve tried MANY different Task/Project Managers even following them closely and trying them out after they would get huge updates. There are a lot of great productivity apps now days but I always find myself coming back to Todoist as it’s simple yet powerful and in my opinion has the best balance of simplicity and features in one package. Throw in the fact that the team at Todoist is constantly improving it with this new Foundations Update it’s gone to a new level. There are still things they need to tweak but overall it’s been great. Also just when I thought this app couldn’t get any better it did with the Foundation’s update and with word of it adding Trello style boards as a future option I see things only getting better. I highly recommend not just trying this app but learning the ins and outs and living with it for a month to really get the full experience of how great this application is. Keep it up Todoist Company!!
A must-have app! LIFESAVER!
by thee.lauren.morin on 2019/07/08 18:37
This app has made my job far less confusing, chaotic, and frustrating! I am an organized person naturally, and I write everything down! But notebooks make me crazy because they are hard to keep organized without a bunch of things crossed out and arrows pointing everywhere! This app allows me to write down what needs to be done, organize it by project, make priority levels, etc. It also works as a calendar to alert me when certain things are due. And I LOVE that I can mark something as complete, and it disappears completely! No ugly, crossed out words! And maybe the best part is that it’s online based, so whatever I add to my list through my phone gets added to my list on my computer! So I don’t have a hundred sticky notes and scrap pieces of paper with notes written on them all over my desk. I always have my phone on me, so I can pull up the all and add stuff in a second! This is the app that I have always wanted!
Removing functionality for its users
by JJ0185 on 2021/04/29 18:17
We regrettably moved to this app when our beloved Wunderlist was no longer supported. It has been tolerable at best, with ugly interface, non-intuitive design and is clearly meant more for an office like/scheduling mindset and not a day to day list app for groceries, etc which we tried to use it for. For example trying to write “1/2” as in “1/2 a cup” is autocorrected to a date “January 2nd” prompting add to calendar every time...so annoying. Again, we tolerated this app, but today I get an email saying they are GIVING us MORE features from their subscription service, how generous! However, they are REMOVING the ability to make more lists (which they call “Projects”) which is the PRIMARY FEATURE OF A LIST APP! We never wanted or asked for the other features. This app is useless to me now. Will find a replacement, of which there are many! What a shameless way to attempt to squeeze money from the people already using your app. It is truly appalling and you should be ashamed. Instead of being creative and developing new features someone would actually want to pay for you are now putting limits on the people who already using the app and changing the way it functions for them. Gross.
Switched from The iPhone X’s Native To-Do List App
by ticothep on 2019/07/01 17:47
I am a huge proponent of to-do lists and have been using Trello and the iPhone X’s native to-do list app. However, I had recently been recommended by a friend to try the Todoist app! Due to my overly-organized nature and my desire for increased efficiency, it was hard for me to imagine switching over from my current organization-flow to this new app because I was worried that I’d have to re-learn a new way of organizing my tasks and to-dos. However, I couldn’t have been MORE wrong when I finally made the switch! The Todoist app is fast, intuitive, minimalistic, and so focused on eliminating the distractibility of inessential features that most other to-do apps include. Actually, I was SO impressed with the Todoist app that I am currently exploring the possibility of integrating the “Twist” app (another product made by Doist) as a main mode of communication for the leadership teams at my Church! Thank you, Doist!
Almost perfect
by Wacnocab on 2020/11/10 07:06
I made the switch over to Todoist from TickTick and absolutely love it. It syncs incredibly well with my iPhone, my Apple Watch, and to my Windows computer which I use at home and at work. I love how minimal the UI is, the layout, and how solid everything feels in comparison to other task manager apps out there. Even the community on Reddit, Instagram, and Twitter are incredibly helpful. Literally the only thing stopping me (and many others) from switching, is how we cannot manually arrange tasks in Today. In the current beta, there are sorting options, but I cannot drag and drop a task that doesn’t have a time associated with it in Today’s tasks with one that does. It bounces right back to the bottom. Many others including myself like to layout their tasks manually the night before, in the order they anticipate doing them. But if you try to do this, some tasks bounce back to the bottom of the list which is somewhat annoying. But otherwise, fantastic app! I see why this is the #1 task manager app
Excellent
by Beau-Ford on 2018/10/25 01:23
I have not found a better overall package out there. Once you really dig into what you can do with Todoist, it’s much more powerful than its simplistic interface reveals at first. I chose Todoist because of its multi platform and web sync, but after trying countless other options including Things, OmniFocus, 2Do and some Evernote extensions, I kept coming back to ToDoist. Once I really embraced the strengths, like rescheduling options, forwarding emails, and using priorities, I was able to piece together a very effective system. It’s not often I find an app that sticks around. It’s easy to procrastinate and spend valuable time looking for the perfect task management system, but I’ve found that what I really was looking for was both a system and a tool. I wanted a GTD app conceptually, but my roots are based on Franklin Covey. I was able to achieve an awesome hybrid approach of what works for me using the functionality of Todoist.
Helpful for College Students
by Idaho Slat on 2020/12/01 17:01
Ive been using this app over the last 3 years in college and have found it incredibly helpful to manage the large amount of assignments and projects through the semester. It’s ability to clearly organize a semesters worth of material at one time and only show the pressing tasks from each class folder makes my life easier not having to go in and add projects every week or sort through separate class folders to find what’s due and when. I love that tasks can easily be shifted when due dates change. and with the most recent updates, as well as my upgrade to premium, this app has taken it to the next level. Being able to see all upcoming tasks past just one week as well as synced on my google calendar has made the complex homework schedule easily visualized and just so much easer to plan and tackle. Here’s to another 3 years of not missing an assignment.
Game changer
by ThisNicknamesAreTooComplicated on 2019/11/24 14:38
With digital tools, such as email, calendars, cloud, etc, having to actually use paper for organization is becoming a thing of the past. The one item I could never find a solution for was to dos. Because of this, I still carried a paper to do calendar (like you had in middle school) to help me track things I wanted to get done. I tried all sorts of ways to get rid of this (emails, calendar invites, etc), but none gave me the visual list or ease of just writing it down. This app changed all that. It’s functions not only replaced my calendar, but actually improved as I could organize them by project, search them, and move them around. It sychs quickly between my iPhone and iPad, and has become one of my most important apps. My company gives us office 365, which includes Microsoft to do. I’ve experimented with this, but its functionality or ease is no wear close to this app!
INCREDIBLE productivity app, highly recommend
by mattiesl0an on 2020/10/20 02:45
My boyfriend got me on this app and within the day I had purchased a monthly subscription. I used to always be a physical planner person until this app, which is so much more helpful in getting things done because it sends you notifications of what you need to do. I also love that instead of a typical calendar app where you schedule things in by the day, on Todoist you just type in what you need to do and when and it automatically puts it on the calendar. I also love that you can organize with different boards and make sub tasks. You can also make boards with other people that have the app and it will notify the other person of things that need to get done. For example my boyfriend and I have a list together and we can put stuff on there that we need to do together!
Almost Perfect
by bigbossfan on 2020/10/11 19:19
I am very task-focused so I have tried all the different to-do and project management apps looking for the perfect one. I keep finding myself coming back to Todoist. I really like the simplicity of setting up a project or a task and the great syncing capability across all of my devices. The fact that I can assign a task to another family member is also a plus. Also, having a web app allows me to use it at work as well. My only complaint with the app is that, when you finalize a repeating task after midnight, it does not show up the following day. Instead, completion of the overdue task is treated as completion on the current day. This is a major pain as I work late and often complete daily tasks after midnight. There should be an option to change this behavior by the user. Other than that, this is a great app and one I use every day. If the developer would just fix this one thing, I’ll never feel the need to stray again.
Great app!
by dice90 on 2020/06/03 14:36
This is exactly the app I needed to help keep track of tasks, to dos, and projects in both my personal and work life. The seamless syncing between my iPhone, Mac, Windows PC and iPad really make this a great app to use for seamless sync. I’ve also got my wife signed up and we work together on a lot of home projects around our small farm. This allows us to collaborate, add tasks to projects and notes about the tasks. I do think it would be better if notifications were not a premium only feature as without notifications, this product really doesn’t work for many folks as a reminder replacement. It’s also a little discouraging that there isn’t a family option... I’d love to include my kids’ chores on this and use it to teach them how to organize their tasks in life. Maybe a set cost for families up to a certain size? Outside of the package offerings, I think this is a fantastic product and recommend to a lot of people!
Great app...when it works
by TooFastForITunes on 2019/04/22 12:06
Today I showed up for work and opened the app to get my day started, and was greeted by a message saying that my “session has expired.” I tried logging back in. No dice. Then I opened the app on my phone, which also booted me out unceremoniously. Then I went to log in at the web site. Still, nothing. I then tried the password reset link (obnoxiously labeled “Forgot your password?” because, clearly, them booting me out of my lists on all platforms simultaneously is the result of user error). I entered every single email account I have, and was told that they have no record of my account. I looked for a support number to call, but it would seem that they don’t offer support over the phone. Gee, I’m so glad I’ve made this app an integral part of my workflow. I hope whenever they figure out what went wrong with their database that they’re able to recover the THOUSANDS of tasks that I entered!
Almost there
by justjoshin11 on 2021/02/24 04:44
Todoist is the best option on the market for both personal and work productivity. I work in tech and use todoist to manage everything, including shared lists with my partner (e.g. grocery shopping list, gifts, vacations, family planning). I use todoist on my phone, over voice through Alexa, and right next to email via an Outlook plugin. Alexa and Todoist are a match made in Heaven. During the day, while I’m working, I can just say things to add to my to do list out loud in less than 5 seconds vs the 20+ seconds it takes to use my phone. It’s amazing! However, in my workflow, I delete tasks frequently, and the design of Todoist in any environment (iPhone, Alexa, web) does not make it easy to delete. I tried setting a default swipe action on my phone, but delete is not an option. This is the one feature that if I had, I would move all my list making to todoist - but for now, I need to keep some lists on paper.
Now Todoist is Perfect
by Adam AMH 7 on 2020/02/23 22:35
I left Todoist for Things. Then I left Things for Moleskin. Then I left Moleskin for the updated iOS Reminders app. I’m back with Todoist! They’ve changed the clunkiness of everything and have added sections and the ability to check off tasks on their mobile platforms the way they always had it on a Mac. The sections addition(I’ve been gone for awhile) was one of the features that made me go to Things...except I lost the intuitiveness of Todoist when I did that...Now I can do the same thing with Todoist and better consolidate and organize everything without feeling overwhelmed with so many projects in the task column. Sub-tasks are also evolving with Todoist. I’m very pleased to be back and happy Todoist has adapted and evolved to stay on top. I’ll save you the trial and error...Stay with Todoist, otherwise you’ll eventually be back anyway.
A review of your life
by Best review of your life on 2020/11/08 01:34
So I’m only 12 years old but I have an iPhone and you know how iPhones have that remind app where you can set reminders or whatever I just don’t find that convenient so I was scrolling through my phone and I was like I need to find an app that helps me remind me about stuff so I search up an app and I tried to do list this app and I’m like oh my god yeah let me try it out I try it out was wonderful I have to help my aunt tomorrow and I’m sending reminders right now and unlike other apps there is like no date like oh tomorrow Wednesday Monday whatever next week and this actually helps with that next week November this when Tuesday Monday Wednesday Thursday this house so I just like it and you know it does not need in my personal opinion it doesn’t need any updates I mean I think it’s perfect the way it is
Perfect app for the lazy or generally unmotivated
by vix025 on 2021/01/16 02:33
I’ve tried so many organizational apps. Like so many. I was already preparing myself to delete this one in a week, because they never work out for me. It’s ridiculous how easy it is to use. You can be the ultra-organized, section for every part of life person on Todoist, or you can be a simple write it down and check it off when you’re done kinda person. The ease of Todoist is just crazy, I’ve never found an app so simple and powerful at the same time. It has really, really changed things for me. I almost hate to say that an app has changed my life but it totally has! I am so much more organized and get my stuff done on time. I only use it for tasks - Gcal is for meetings - and I never find myself procrastinating anymore. It’s so great. My fellow unmotivated people - please download this
Great if you are willing to use it on your web platform or computer too
by Nararabbit on 2019/10/06 17:07
There are too many critical features that are unavailable on the iOS version. You can’t print form the app. That’s right, you can’t print! You also can’t sort your daily to do list by the priority you set (rendering that pointless in my mind), add comments, or several other things in the iOS app. It’s there mainly to check things off, remind you through notifications (which are either toggled on or off - you cannot turn on notifications for *only* high priority tasks for example), and allow you to adjust dates and times. A lot of todoist is great, but I wouldn’t recommend it for someone who plans to use ONLY or MAINLY their phone if they want to take advantage of Todoist’s power. It’s really a supplement, not the best standalone due to its limitations. I hope in the future they’ll give it more support because I do think the software is great overall, I just don’t want to feel tethered to a computer so much.
I’m “scatterbrained”, but this app has changed my life.
by LxSaka on 2021/03/03 18:52
WOW. Todoist GETS me. I continue to be grateful for such a clean, gorgeous, and amazingly user friendly app. I do not usually make in-app purchases, but I knew without a doubt that it would be worth it to pay for the Premium account, and that is coming from a millennial who is VERY stingy on app purchases or upgrades. I used to have trouble organizing my thoughts—EVERYTHING is important. My old “to-do” lists (yes, there were multiple) were ineffective. I would get overwhelmed and it would render me useless. I’m telling you—your search ends here. I’d been looking for something like Todoist for years. I HIGHLY recommend what’s called the “Getting Things Done (GTD)” method of organization if you’re anything like me. Take the app’s quiz to check out your needed productivity style! Glad to have Todoist in my life BIG time.
Best task management platform in the world
by Sha-maniac on 2018/12/30 23:38
I discovered Todoist several years ago and have growing with it ever since they got started. Im a single mom running my own business, manage a team, and I’m your typical entrepreneur with so many things to do and stay on top of. For a having a “adhd” type mins with so much creativity ... Todoist is my Brain!! I’m able to manage and entire business process and checklist with Todoist. My robot assistant works for me out of Todoist and helps me get projects done. I’m able to keep my personal grocery list, personal shopping care list and any personal reminders all in one place. Not only that but I’ve sold this platform off to ALL OF MY CLIENTS and it’s really making a difference in their life as Real Estate Agents to keep a process flow in tact!!! I feel stress free and everything in one place!! Thank you Todoist!!!
Good but some improvements to make
by rock&rollruinedmylife on 2021/04/16 19:32
Would be nice to be able to have a monthly view of tasks, not daily. I’d like to see what my big tasks are for the month, be able to filter by priority(s) or tag(s) or project(s). I’d also like to be able to add DEPENDENCIES!!!! I don’t want to see the tasks that I can’t do at the moment mixed in with the ones I can. Also please allow us to pick any custom color (like an RGB slider). Other apps that integrate with this app allow for that, so feels behind the times and less compatible. Finally, please make it easier for us to undo when the app automatically turns a date written in our task item into its due date. I don’t want to disable this automatic feature, because about half the time I enter a date that is in fact the date I want it to be set to. The way Fantastical handles it is a step in the right direction.
Changing my life for better.
by Memfistony on 2020/01/29 04:45
I’m a pro-procrasnator. But this Todoist has changed my life, step by step. Application is simple to use but powerful. Cross platform and pick up and resume on any device. It helps me at office and at home as well as on vacation. You can attach document or screenshot , create projects setting tags sub tasks and comment and so on. As well as share as group task. It sounds complicate but you always start simple. Daily todo and inbox is where you begin with. Then you expand on work project. Mine is like main income. Side income, Youtubeproject. Podcast. Travel, home project, personal improvement. Automobile, pending(require others response) Bills and so on. I can’t say enough how much I love this app. And their update is always on point and make life easier every time. I appreciate you guys, Doist family.
Todoist - It is the system!!
by Rate Mint on 2018/12/24 13:32
I have tried several systems for managing my projects and tasks and Todoist is the system that I find most helpful. The number one biggest reason is the Gmail extension that allows me to convert emails to tasks and the tasks are linked to the email. Most of my tasks arrive as emails. With Todoist, I convert these emails to tasks quickly and easily. The second reason I find Todoist productive is the wide range of platforms on which Todoist is available. I use Todoist on my iPhone, my iPad, Windows, Gmail, Outlook.... I can organize tasks by projects and view the tasks by due date or project. Because I use it on every platform I have, I can access everywhere. As someone said, the best task/project manager is the one you use regularly. I use it everyday and learn to do more with it.
This helps my anxiety
by cwhy89 on 2021/04/08 14:45
So I deal with chronic anxiety, and if you do too you’ll probably relate to the constant sense of worry that pervades every moment of your life. I recently started using to do lists to put down every single task or event I could possibly worry about, categorized by my core values (well-being, family, home maintenance, volunteering). So now when I find myself worrying just to worry, when my brain is looking for something to worry about, I simple remind myself that it’s all mapped out on my to do list and it’s all being taken care of. It’s helped reduce my daily anxiety levels a good bit. I started off using the free iPhone Reminders app, which worked alright, but it didn’t offer the additional organizational structure that Todoist offers. Now I simply look at the Today section of Todoist and everything is conveniently laid out in order of priority for the day, which allows me to be super productive. It’s also really easy to edit tasks, push them off to another date, etc. and I really love the “Upcoming” list that shows you the future tasks coming up soon. I love the feature to make custom filters as well. This a very robust app that has helped me take hold of my daily life and be more productive with less effort.
Great balance of features but a few bad UI choices
by drtimhill on 2017/11/03 09:24
There are a lot of great todo apps out there, but for me Todoist hits the sweet spot between Uber feature set (Omnifocus) and ease of use (Reminders anyone?). Under a deceptively simple UI is a powerful app, with all the features and integrations I need. I love the intelligent task parsing that makes adding new tasks soooo easy. The multi platform support (and sync between them) works perfectly, and the web app is as full-featured as the desktop apps. However I have to knock off one star for a horrid UI choice on the iPhone ... the almost totally hidden search function. To search all projects you have to first choose a project (yes really) then tap a menu button then tap search and then tap all tasks before you can enter a search term. The app is screaming to have a search icon on the main page .. which oddly the Mac app does indeed have.
Helpful for organizing
by Twerkules on 2020/06/13 02:09
The app is very helpful and excellent at helping me organize my to-do’s especially with reminder notifications! I like that it can automatically insert notification reminders, or put it into individual projects. My wife likes it as well, we did have a bit of a time finding out how to view completed tasks (thanks go to the developer for answering our original review), which really helps her out feeling accomplished even if it was small things. I got this app specifically for ADHD helping me get organized and it is so helpful if you tend to get distracted easily. And to create a project then break it down into sub tasks. Review updated to 5 stars from 4 for customer service and for helping correct (our user error) the only con that we had noticed about this app.
Best To Do app!
by veebee7 on 2020/07/19 17:48
I’d give this app 10 stars if I could, 5 stars aren’t enough. The longer I use it, the more I like it. Really don’t know how I’d efficiently function without it at this point. I doing buy many apps but this one is worth every penny. I've tried MANY list and productivity apps and this one is the best I've found. The Apple watch functionality is a bonus. While sitting at a stoplight or walking around the grocery store, a couple if taps on the watch, speak the new item to add, and there it is in a list. No more fumbling for my phone or a pen or forgetting what I wanted to note before I can log it. Plus! I'm wearing my To Do list on my wrist and can view and check off items from there as I go. Lots of other great features as well. Extremely happy with it!
Needs Some Improvement
by RobWSeattle on 2018/04/12 03:04
I am a heavy task user. I believe a lot of my success in my career was due to my utilizing task management systems. I was utilizing computer based task systems back in 1994. I love them. I’ve been through all the best in class task management apps. Most recently I used Wunderlist, but wanted to get ahead of the Microsoft mess, and jumped to Todoist. Overall Todoist is amazing. I’m doing things I just dreamed of with my old systems. Custom filters - incredible!! I’m a little frustrated with the iOS app though. Here are a couple items that need to be fixed: 1. The ability to duplicate tasks. A lot of my tasks are kind of repetitive in their setup. I know I can use the Mac app to do this. Why can’t I click duplicate task on iOS? This would be great for me. 2. Sorting. They really need to improve sorting. There really isn’t a good way to do it on iOS. I have a label called “priority”. I will only label a few things (up to 5) with this. I want to manually sort these in order of work priority. When I try, it just goes back to alphabetical. Also, I have a project with multiple recurring items by due date. There is no way to sort this by due date. It’s absolutely worthless to view this project on iOS - it’s such a mess because there is no sorting. Please do some work so there are multiple sort options on iOS.
Todoist is great but falls short on UI on iOS
by Basit.Anwer on 2018/12/07 08:05
I am a premium user of Todoist and have implemented GTD with it. I’ll list down pros and cons that I found. Summary First: Todoist itself is excellent because it is just not an app. The NLP feature is the best thing but after everything good, it still needs a lot of UI improvements in the iOS app. Nothing that you can’t live without but would be awesome if it had. Just use it, you’ll love it. And the support is also good. Pros: - The best thing about Todoist is assigning labels, projects and dates. The natural language processing is so helpful in adding new tasks yet it’s still underrated in every review. - Supported everywhere. From windows to Mac. Mobile devices and web. It helps a lot. - Complicated yet it’s simple. - It supports multiple edits Con - The UI could be improved a lot. The individual tasks take a lot of screen space. A compact UI helps you prioritize tasks. There is just too much empty space. - Editing task is a hassle. While adding task is a breeze. You just have to take too many steps to edit a label or a project - We cannot navigate to Projects from Filters even though every task shows the project it is related to and every other Todoist app supports it. - The web UI is a lot better and functional on Safari than the native IOS app.
Recurring task due dates constantly disappear.
by wundering why on 2021/02/23 22:34
A persistent problem with this app is that it constantly forgets most of my weekly, recurring due dates and times. You have one job: help me stay on top of my tasks. It has become a task item in itself to constantly re-enter the due date and time for my recurring tasks. I bought the premium version and contacted support about this a month ago. They told me to close the app, logout, clear the cache, etc. I done all of these things and continue do this every single week because Todoist can’t manage recurring tasks. The app also crashes across my platforms and two days ago, over half of my “Today” tasks randomly disappeared (I had to quit and log back in). I’ve reached out once again, but this time I’ve yet to hear back. Also, adding to do items involve a bit more work than other apps I’ve used, so I’m definitely planning to migrate elsewhere if Todoist doesn’t respond to me and troubleshoot. This app is becoming way more trouble than it’s worth.
Better than wonderlist, but needs better UI
by CountryMom27 on 2017/10/26 02:10
I’ve tried multiple to do apps, and Todoist is pretty good, especially since it isn’t owned by Microsoft and it is accessible on my work PC, my iPad, phone, watch, and personal Mac laptop. That said, the UI needs some work. It’s hard to see what is on my plate for the week, or the next few days, because there is no swimlane/kaiban visualization. If there was a way to visually see my to-dos (sizing by expected time, colored by topic - e.g. work, research, home, kids...), I’d be in heaven. Even if it could integrate with a kaiban app that was decent... but alas, I have the choice between listing everything here and not being able to see it, or being able to see everything in another app like Trello and losing the project organization in Todoist. Lastly, we use outlook (which I hate) for work, and the integration with Todoist is really weak, and there is no integration between Outlook for Mac and Todoist whatsoever. Really shameful.
Fixed recurring event bug - happy again
by hclincoln on 2018/12/28 15:37
Bug has been addressed & all is well. Still not happy that I lost so many recurring events during the bug and have to remember/re-enter them. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I loved this app until about 1 month ago. I’m a premium user and can’t believe how a simple bug can go unaddressed for so long. You’re supposed to be able to schedule recurring events (ex. Everyday, every 3 days, every week), but Todoist drops the recurrence on it’s own after 1-2 days with no warning. If you don’t catch it before marking something done, it is gone for good. This leaves you to hopefully remember the event and then comb through completed events and re-enter them frequently, as in DAILY. Too frustrating for an app meant to simplify life: I’ll be moving on to something else unless bug is addressed very soon.
One (really) annoying missing feature.
by thecommamaster on 2019/02/17 17:46
I absolutely L O V E todoist, but i have two complaints/feature requests. Firstly, why doesn’t a parent project show all the tasks in a sub-project? I have individual projects (like work, personal, shopping), and then sub projects to show the different categories (like a sub-project for items i need to buy at specific stores). It’s great for de-cluttering my app. It would be absolutely WONDERFUL to have an option available to have the parent project show all the tasks in the sub-projects. Secondly, why isn’t the drop-down menu to show sub-projects available when you favorite a parent project? These little things are pretty annoying, and i’d really love for you guys to add these things!
Pretty useful task list organizer
by Ketzlkat on 2019/01/29 19:36
I’ve been using Todoist for a while now. I find this one simple to use, pretty easy to learn and get started right away. I also like that they gave me a fairly generous amount of time to fully evaluate the pro version to decide if I want the additional functionality. Honestly it works great, even without the pro features, but they are a nice bonus. Three things keep me from giving it 5 stars. While using the pro feature, the notifications for reminders are inconsistent. I want a push notification to my phone or watch, but sometimes it works other times it doesn’t. The other thing, and I find this with most task apps, is that you can only assign one date. I would like to have several dates and milestones along the way. I know there are ways around this, but I just want to be able to tell myself to start something on a specific date but keep the due date when it is actually due. When you have sub tasks with different due dates they don’t reference their parent tasks, so it can be a bit confusing if you have several tasks with similar steps or sub tasks to be completed. I also want repeating tasks with sub tasks to refresh when the task refreshes, but I am not sure it works that way.
Overall great app
by Starsigma on 2020/04/30 01:54
I have been using Todoist for a little while now. Overall I really like the app and have been using it for both personal and professional reminders. The only real issue I have with it is the Apple Watch...it is not fully compatible with it..yes it does show the reminders on your watch but you have to get to them right away. If you don’t and swipe down from the notification screen on your watch. If you select a task the app doesn’t respond to allow you to mark it complete or snooze. You have to press down on the item for several seconds before it will bring up the screen to complete the task. This occurs whether you have one task to address or if you have missed multiple . Basically 50/50 shot it responds on the watch. I would give it 5 stars if not for this issue.
Probably Good for Shared Task lists
by LoyalSage on 2017/09/27 14:22
I tried using this for my own personal task list, but like every other task manager, it has no concept of things needing to be done prior to when they are due, so it is more work than it’s worth to get reminded of a task prior to the due date. The default view is Today, which shows things due today, and the reminder emails show you what is due today and past due, which is pretty useless for my specific use cases. So basically it’s probably a good app, but not for me. I wish the Pro subscription had a monthly option (or maybe even just a short trial so you know if the Pro features make it worth using without committing to a year) because I feel like I need to keep using this app that doesn’t work for me since I’ve paid for it it for a year.
Saved me from the hassles of ADHD
by Tasty_Leviathan on 2020/05/09 20:35
I’m a lot less distracted since installing this app. It keeps me focused because I can just look at it whenever I want. It’s compatible with my laptop, which is a huge plus since I sometimes am studying on my computer and I sometimes remember random tasks on the go. It has a few things here and there that it could add, such as being able to alphabetize/sort your projects, leave comments on separate sections, or sort by color, but those are secondary to its most helpful features, which is the ability to sort tasks and not so much projects. Still might be nice to consider. All in all, an excellent app to have if you frequently write lists and forget about them or lose them.
Game Changer
by stanstan89 on 2020/11/02 13:50
Need to get your life together? This app is for you. I have always struggled with digital to do lists and always reverted back to paper but this app is a game changer. Long gone are the days of unorganized to do lists, action items living in a 100 places, etc. Now, my to do lists are organized, prioritized, and in one place. The only reason I gave this app 4 stars instead of 5 is because I think it could really use a notes section. A place to put things that don’t have do dates, but you want to remember when your brain decides to remember it. For instance, I use it to keep a list of things I want to buy, or try one day, but none of those items need to be in a list or with a date. Either way, this app is amazing and will seriously help you level up your adulting game.
Just renewed Premium. 2nd Year 🥇🏆🍻
by Patricia @ EAHWP on 2019/11/23 10:31
I’ve used quite a few to do list type of organizers and none have fit the bill as consistently as Todoist. The one thing I look at that is very important to me when I’m considering downloading an app is I check out how frequently it’s updated. There’s nothing I hate more than loving an app and then finding that it’s kind of abandoned and no one’s really keeping up with the latest versions of iOS. I am so pleased with how smoothly Todoist works on my iPhone, my iPad and even my Mac. I know I can grab it in my browser if I need to and I feel secure knowing I can always have all my personal and professional notes and projects at my fingertips. Couldn’t live without it. Please pardon any typos. Dictating...

Have really gotten attached but...
by NC Surf City on 2021/05/15 12:02
I have really gotten attached to this software. Anytime a thought or plan of action pops in my head, Todoist is my go-to app. I started a new position and wanted an app that would expand and grow with me. I purchased this app and began my quest. I really like the ability to schedule anything at anytime, have it recur, and alert. I’ve been building this database for about six months now, and it is still my go to app. So... remember that commercial on tv that shows a guy just clicking on the internet. He clicks, and clicks and clicks, only to get a response that says “ you have reached the end of the internet”? Well, I just had that moment with this app. I was in the middle of preparing a new hire orientation when I received a message that I have reached my limit for active projects. What’s up with that?? Message to developers: please resolve this situation and remove limitations altogether. I really do not want to archive “as the message suggested”. My memory is not such that I would thin to look at archived files! That’s why I bought the app!
Great tool
by don_m nc on 2021/05/15 10:36
The best organization tool I have worked with. It has replaced my DayTimer that I’ve used for over 28 years. I highly recommend.
The best for GTD
by iPadupadwepad on 2021/05/14 18:11
Terrific app. Handles all my GTD tasks with ease.
Todoist
by beckerusa on 2021/05/11 17:28
Always on the search for the optimal GTD program. Was hooked several years to omnifocus and things and stumbled upon todoist by chance. Well, for me the best presently, better file and email integration, top design and flexibility
Scamming Traitors
by Tommy X. on 2021/05/11 17:03
How can I get anything done with 5 projects? Forcing us to pay for premium perks is absolutely outrageous. I understand more than 10 but 5????
Awesome app
by chriscera on 2021/05/11 10:58
I’ve used many products for almost 2 decades, and this is by far the best. They keep adding features to enhance usability too.
Love it!
by DrLando on 2021/05/10 12:26
Best, most versatile ToDo app I’ve ever used. Great job!
no reminder notifications on free plan
by RohitRohit on 2021/05/09 23:34
it lets me set reminders but doesn’t tell me with notifications because apparently that is not available until you upgrade to premium plan. doesn’t it defeat the purpose of setting timed reminder task altogether, in that case ?
Untrustworthy
by TheBrewerman on 2021/05/09 00:22
Developer switched the free plan from supporting 30 projects down to 5. No email or announcement. Don’t trust this company at all anymore. All they care about is forcing you to pay for the Pro version.
Works For Me
by wishjr on 2021/05/08 23:49
Have tried many To do list and activity programs over several decades. This the only one I have stayed with, because it works for me.
Amazing
by Hanna.I on 2021/05/08 06:00
Great app. I highly recommend getting the prime version. Very useful and simple.
Works wonders
by Mkestrel on 2021/05/06 22:11
So clean and easy to use. Everything I need to do I enter and cross it off once complete. Very satisfying
It helps a lot.
by Jackedupandup on 2021/05/06 00:13
I lose the pieces of paper that I write things down on, but I do not lose my I pad. Todoist is a huge help in remembering what needs to get done! Great App!
Amazing app
by Best option on 2021/05/05 12:11
Toggl has made a huge difference in my professional and personal life. As a pastor, student, husband and father I have too many balls in the air, but Toggl helps me keep track of all of them. The professional version is well worth the money!
Reminder
by Not working .. e.e on 2021/05/04 23:33
I used this app religiously and luckily it wasn't until my semester was over that I realized they got rid of the reminders function. Well, "got rid of". Now it's in the pro subscription. Why is the one thing this app is good for being included in the subscription? It was doing great with the amount of restrictions the free version had! I'll be deleting this and I guess I am on yet another hunt to find just the right reminder app again during my month break out of school. $35.99/yr for a subscription? Like, what the heck? Hopefully one day I learn to make my own app so I don't have to deal with these cash-grabbing apps. 😒
Simply does not work
by violet_pigeon on 2021/05/04 17:01
I got Todoist yesterday, and tried to upgrade to an annual subscription. The in app purchase did not work, and it fails with an unknown error. Not only that, when I try to use the app as it is, I keep seeing a pop up saying “There’s no information available for in app purchase. Please try again later 21104”. When I contacted support, they tried blaming it on me by saying “ That seems to be an App Store error. “So I’m out of $35, the app doesn’t work even in the basic (free) mode, and the support is unhelpful. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GARBAGE AT ALL COSTS.
Second Best "To Do" App!
by Could not think of a cool nickname on 2021/05/03 21:18
There must be a better app than "Todoist" out there but I haven't found it yet. This app blew Things 3 and the astrocious and bloated Omnifocus 3 away. Stop looking and get this app. Now!
5 year long patron, best todo list app I’ve used
by refaaj on 2021/05/03 06:57
I’ve gone through a number of todo list apps, and this is by far my favorite. The feature list is insanely long, organization is a breeze, and their customer support is top notch. 10/10 recommend
Swipe feature
by Ace398 on 2021/05/02 23:51
Current state: app allow swipe to select, complete or schedule. Desired state: allow swipe to delete task. I like having a plan of action. If things don’t go the way they should, I write out a task to course correct. However, often times things go just as planned and there is no need for that additional task. So often I have tasks that I want to delete because they are no longer needed to be done. I would not mark these as complete because I didn’t “do” the task. It just wasn’t needed anymore. Swiping left or right to delete the task would make clearing this unactionable stuff faster.
I am livid
by Alex is a dinosaur on 2021/05/01 14:55
I’ve been using this app to keep track of all my daily and weekly tasks and as off the update two days ago REMINDERS are now part of the pro paid plan? This isn’t cool. I used this because the Reminders app that comes with the iPhone is terrible and honestly, this is useless to me too now. I can’t throw money at every single app on my phone.
Love this app!
by Nomo12345678 on 2021/04/30 18:00
Fast, keyboard shortcuts are good, nice ios and macos support
Not, it’s still “free”
by lschaef09 on 2021/04/30 16:37
Instead of making todoist worth upgrading to premium for, they chose to only allow 5 projects to force you to upgrade. I’m a multi year todoist subscriber who has had premium off and on over that time. I’ll be deleting my account due to the blatant cash grab. Good riddance.
Scam
by Spenje on 2021/04/30 15:34
App said I had reached my 5 project limit in the free version. I paid the upgrade fee then it said I had reached me 5 “active” project limit, I needed to upgrade to “Business level”.
Virtually useless now
by Sweatpantspapi on 2021/04/30 02:35
Company got greedy, and now wants you to to pay to set reminders, which is 90% of the purpose of this app. Don't support this type of behavior, plenty of other options for apps of this type.
Amazing
by Garisen Madsen on 2021/04/29 23:46
I love this app
Removing functionality for its users
by JJ0185 on 2021/04/29 18:17
We regrettably moved to this app when our beloved Wunderlist was no longer supported. It has been tolerable at best, with ugly interface, non-intuitive design and is clearly meant more for an office like/scheduling mindset and not a day to day list app for groceries, etc which we tried to use it for. For example trying to write “1/2” as in “1/2 a cup” is autocorrected to a date “January 2nd” prompting add to calendar every time...so annoying. Again, we tolerated this app, but today I get an email saying they are GIVING us MORE features from their subscription service, how generous! However, they are REMOVING the ability to make more lists (which they call “Projects”) which is the PRIMARY FEATURE OF A LIST APP! We never wanted or asked for the other features. This app is useless to me now. Will find a replacement, of which there are many! What a shameless way to attempt to squeeze money from the people already using your app. It is truly appalling and you should be ashamed. Instead of being creative and developing new features someone would actually want to pay for you are now putting limits on the people who already using the app and changing the way it functions for them. Gross.
Reminder Alert?
by Roqmo on 2021/04/29 15:13
You need to advertise that there’s an “in-app purchase” here. It states that I cannot activate the reminder alert unless I upgrade to pro???
I think it’s a great app and it does exactly what is says
by nottakendjifidjrne on 2021/04/29 14:36
I don’t do many reviews, but I really like this app I really like how you can organize your projects and different tasks at the same time and it’s super convenient. You can’t go wrong and even if you only want a simple todo list it works great!
Really enjoy the app and helps with productivity
by ACCHUIGRURGUCGRUGFURGF on 2021/04/29 14:34
It’s great
Now limits number of projects
by Stasia-Marie on 2021/04/28 19:21
It used to be great, there was an update that limits the number of projects to 5. I would no longer recommend this app. There are much better ones out there.
Lovely
by SpecialllKayyy on 2021/04/28 15:58
There are not many apps that I would ever pay for but this is 100% one of them.
Crash on launch
by jeeves78 on 2021/04/27 19:42
My app just updated, and the app crashes while presenting the splash screen. This is happening consistently and the app does not run
Next level
by areebsalim on 2021/04/27 06:18
I can’t get over how good this app is. After endless trial and error I have finally stumbled upon the perfect app. The flexibility. The organization. The customization. This app is everything I needed and more!!
Amazing
by Today4Him on 2021/04/26 13:41
Todoist is fantastic! It’s intuitive, easy to use and fun. It has all the bells and whistles for complex time management needs and can also be easily used on a smaller, more personal level. It syncs flawlessly across all my devices. I couldn’t be more satisfied.
No Family Sharing? False Advertising
by spedwardzz on 2021/04/26 04:41
I love the app, but I’m disappointed that Family Sharing doesn’t appear to work? It’s advertised as such, and after paying for the annual subscription, my Apple family can’t benefit from my pro subscription I’m finding out. I mean, is that not false advertising? Right in the store under apps that work with family share subscriptions: Todoist is listed, and it is also shown as an icon for supported features on the app page itself. Please address this, I’m sure I’m not the only one who has realized this. Greatly appreciated and in all honesty, great app! 5 stars once addressed, 1 star for attention hopefully. If this feature does work, please make it intuitive and explain how to enable this. Yes, I’ve gone through all my family sharing and subscription sharing settings. Please don’t ask me to troubleshoot my settings, that isn’t the issue.
Stood the test of time
by rabooch on 2021/04/25 01:01
I spent a lot of time researching the perfect productivity tool. I tried everything from journals, calendars, alarms, and eventually found Todoist. I instantly enjoyed the simple UI, reminders, scheduling, and labeling features. I’ve been actively using the app for almost 2 years now. It remains the single best productivity tool that I’ve ever used. It syncs up to my apple calendar as all days events but the best feature is the number of notifications on the app icon indicating the number of tasks scheduled for the current day. It’s an incredibly subtle reminder every time I open my phone. They also do a great job at improving it over time. The kanban boards were an awesome feature recently added and an example that the team intends for it to be more than a checkbox type of todo list. Keep up the great work, Doist!

Great Task Management App But ...
by shayankasaei on 2021/04/22 13:43
First off, thank u so much for making such an amazing app. I personally used to move back and forth between different apps that I thought could fit in my workflow, but at the end of the road, not of them did, until almost a year ago that I started using Todoist and man, that changed everything. But still it's laking one annoying feature in the "schedule" section, and that is to automate planning tasks for odd days or even days by simply writing "every odd day" at that magical textbox. doing it would be much appreciated.
Happy with this app😂
by onlyterra on 2021/04/22 09:15
So far, this app has what I’ve been looking for. It’s time consuming when you can’t find the right app (install-try-fail-remove), but I got lucky this!
Terrible design
by fjalkdj on 2021/04/22 07:30
Why is that when I press the + sign to add a new task, 70% of the time, it thinks I’m trying to physically drag the plus icon around? What a monumentally stupid and user hostile feature. Also, why is it literally impossible to “indent” a task and make it a sub task of another task in the app? That’s a feature I use all the time in desktop. Extremely frustrating user experience. :(
Switcheru
by last.first on 2021/04/20 23:08
I had a subscription that allowed me to write notes to a to-do item. But Todoist moved that function to a higher subscription level, requiring me to pay more to keep the function. Instead I am leaving Todoist for an app with more integrity.
Great app but need some updates
by Iris... on 2021/04/20 16:58
I love the sorting options, but when you sort by priority you can no longer adjust the order of the tasks within that priority range. Very frustrating.
Loved it until I didn’t!!!!
by Deborah's Iphone on 2021/04/20 02:04
Horrible!!!
I would give this 5 stars but..
by Bre8pq on 2021/04/18 00:52
I love the app because after you set a task on a specific due date, it will e-mail you. I like having this reminder but wish you could set things bi-weekly or monthly but there’s not a repeat option.
Sync unreliable
by Glassman3309 on 2021/04/17 19:30
Wonderful when it syncs, a pain when it doesn’t
Good but some improvements to make
by rock&rollruinedmylife on 2021/04/16 19:32
Would be nice to be able to have a monthly view of tasks, not daily. I’d like to see what my big tasks are for the month, be able to filter by priority(s) or tag(s) or project(s). I’d also like to be able to add DEPENDENCIES!!!! I don’t want to see the tasks that I can’t do at the moment mixed in with the ones I can. Also please allow us to pick any custom color (like an RGB slider). Other apps that integrate with this app allow for that, so feels behind the times and less compatible. Finally, please make it easier for us to undo when the app automatically turns a date written in our task item into its due date. I don’t want to disable this automatic feature, because about half the time I enter a date that is in fact the date I want it to be set to. The way Fantastical handles it is a step in the right direction.
It just works so well
by NurtureWarrior on 2021/04/16 02:49
I recently took on a course called Mission control that recommends the GTD concept with a twist.All things that need to be done must either be scheduled, in the proverbial waiting room to be scheduled within the next two weeks, and not scheduled. I found I could label individual tasks as “next up which fits into that second level. Everything else is either scheduled (including scheduled as periodic and scheduled as recurring) or not scheduled. The one thing this course adds that I don’t know if there is a place to put is the idea that every action should have noted my my motivation for doing it i.e. what’s in it for me or those I serve by doing that task.
Cannot synch with iPhone
by In BJ ; app is bad on 2021/04/15 04:33
Horrible product.
Great app!
by Scott Schuler on 2021/04/15 00:35
I use this all the time. It told me I’m in the top 1% of users based on the number of tasks I’ve completed on it. It isn’t 5 stars only because I wish there were more stats available. But beside that, I LOVE the user interface, ease between computer and mobile, and use it literally EVERY day! You should download, do a free premium trial, then pay for it. It’s definitely worth it for me
Deceivers ;)
by HugeHum on 2021/04/14 23:28
Todoist website displays that comments are included in the free plan. But in the iOS app, this function is available only to premium users. 🤨
Too many “premium features”
by Paul Denisevich on 2021/04/13 11:43
So I just accidentally marked some task as completed and it’s a “premium feature” to view all completed tasks. Are you f kidding me?

Awesome Program
by kdchavez on 2021/04/11 16:42
This is an awesome program & I use it all the time. I don’t have a family, so I’m glad this app doesn’t have all the other stuff other apps have for family schedules & such. I’m also not a big time executive who needs a bunch of other features, keeping track of meetings & clients. I’m a simple personal on disability, who likes to keep track of projects around the house & her shopping list. I also use it for my part-time position I have working at home to keep track of what reports I need to finish. The other added features I love is the ability to use it with my Apple Watch I just won in a contest & the ability to use it with Alexa, which being disabled & having mobility issues, this is a major convenience. The one bad thing, which is why I gave it only 4 stars, is the inability to use some of the features without buying the premium version. Being on disability, once the rent & the rest of the monthly necessities are paid, I don’t even have enough left over to go out to lunch, let alone pay subscription fees. I don’t mind paying one time charges if the program was worth it, such as this one, since I know the time & energy that goes into the development, but those of us who are mostly on limited, fixed income, who also must still work part-time to pay bills, don’t have the money to pay any kind of subscription fees. Anyways, that’s all. Just wish I had access to the other features, so I could really utilize the app to its full potential.
Extremely intuitive and all the features
by Zenabelly on 2021/04/10 17:00
This is my dream “to-do list” app! It’s very intuitive to navigate, simple yet complex that it has all the features you’d ever want to really organize everything. Seriously, I’m actually in shock at how perfect it is!
This helps my anxiety
by cwhy89 on 2021/04/08 14:45
So I deal with chronic anxiety, and if you do too you’ll probably relate to the constant sense of worry that pervades every moment of your life. I recently started using to do lists to put down every single task or event I could possibly worry about, categorized by my core values (well-being, family, home maintenance, volunteering). So now when I find myself worrying just to worry, when my brain is looking for something to worry about, I simple remind myself that it’s all mapped out on my to do list and it’s all being taken care of. It’s helped reduce my daily anxiety levels a good bit. I started off using the free iPhone Reminders app, which worked alright, but it didn’t offer the additional organizational structure that Todoist offers. Now I simply look at the Today section of Todoist and everything is conveniently laid out in order of priority for the day, which allows me to be super productive. It’s also really easy to edit tasks, push them off to another date, etc. and I really love the “Upcoming” list that shows you the future tasks coming up soon. I love the feature to make custom filters as well. This a very robust app that has helped me take hold of my daily life and be more productive with less effort.
Bad development work
by Niravkumar on 2021/04/07 21:10
Even after paying for subscription, I don’t get any premium features and app is still ask me money to upgrade for premium features. Tried so many times to refresh but same results. This was disappointing 🤬
Great app
by Ratonvel on 2021/04/07 11:17
Great app to get your whole life organized, I strongly recommend it .
Awesome ... just needs one thing
by Jefin Jose on 2021/04/06 16:57
I really appreciate Todoist and literally couldn’t life without it. It organizes every aspect of my life and have accounts through all my Google accounts. Despite its greatness, Todoist needs one last feature that would make it the one stop productivity app: a calendar view. There is of course the upcoming view, but seeing all your tasks for future days would be really helpful. I not only check the tasks for tomorrow, I check the events I have on upcoming days for planning. Scrolling through the upcoming view makes this a little inconvenient. Otherwise, the service is great!
Noice!
by ashkanmoeini on 2021/04/06 12:09

I have been using Todoist now for over 7 years and there is no way that I could stay organized without it. My wife and I use it for shopping, vacation planning, and work. Todoist truly helps us stay on top of our lives every day.
Spent an hour trying to figure anything out and bailed
by trixy1973 on 2021/04/01 23:01

Best there is
by Tommywal on 2021/03/29 08:55
I've tried all the organizational apps available and this is the best by far. I'd recommend this for anyone trying to keep their personal life organized through someone using this to organize their work team. This Todoist app syncs across all platforms and is a breeze to use. I started with a free membership a few years ago and now pay for six premium memberships for my management. Well worth the annual cost.

Good app, too bad premium is a subscription service
by Carlemagne93 on 2021/03/24 15:39
I use Todoist daily to keep track of my day and tasks. The app truly is very helpful. I would upgrade to the premium except it’s a subscription rather than a one time fee. There’s too many subscription-based payment models on the market already.
Way too completed
by Deborahlee52 on 2021/03/24 02:52
When it becomes too much of a job and too intricate to find out how to maneuver inside a program and it becomes one of my greater “to do’s“ then it is time to look elsewhere.
The best app ever!!!
by puppy unicorn 🐶🦄 on 2021/03/22 19:33
This app is really organized and super duper helpful. The app daily send you messages of you are late and specifically there is no adds. It’s a great app to use for to do lists and i have been using it since the past year and it helped me out so much especially in this COVID time. But i love this app.....
Perfect except for one minor thing
by ben salley on 2021/03/21 19:46
Is everything I could want from a to-do list app. The only thing that could make it better would be if the widgets refreshed more frequently as they seem to display older info unless you go into the app and exit back out. Other than that this app is awesome and I’m always excited for more features to be added!
Another and greedy trash
by Okhyfguu on 2021/03/21 19:30
Deleted the app in a few minutes. A small feature like Reminder requires premium? are you kidding me
Loses data
by NotAnApplePerson on 2021/03/21 16:31
I don't understand why they can't get sync to work! In prior versions, the whole app would inexplicably and silently stop syncing. Now, you get a warning indicator, saying the "updates didn't sync" and allowing you to discard them. Is that progress? If you're looking for a todo list, PICK SOMETHING ELSE. Losing data is a deal breaker.
Fantastic App
by Avery LeMmon on 2021/03/18 19:31
Todoist is by far the best to-do list app I’ve ever used. They make adjustments/provide upgrades regularly which is huge for me. I’ll be using this app for a long time, if not forever. The only suggestion I have: it would be awesome to choose if you want the “add task” section at the top or bottom of your list. I sort by priority ascending and would love to easily add tasks from the top instead of having to scroll down regularly.
Cant delete

Long Due
by mulleranjos on 2021/03/17 15:54
Import from Reminders. This is a long due issue that should have been implemented already... other than that, best to do App by far.
Best out there
by waterdog4927 on 2021/03/17 12:38
I have used most of the to do apps out there and this is by far my favorite. I especially appreciate that it is fully functional in its free version. The premium has so many great additional functions, it’s easy to want/need to upgrade.

Todoist
by Mr. Oppoisteofshort on 2021/03/16 13:05
Good app overall, but I find their notifications and reminders to be lackluster because they don’t do enough to get my attention. Also, I’m sure I’m not using all the functionality, but I don’t see any “walk me through” options available. Premium is worth it, but it’s still gonna make you work.
Nice to have the cross platform clients

Great but could be better
by bahemoth on 2021/03/16 10:12
This is by far the greatest to do list app I’ve ever seen, the boards are a cool idea and it’s so innovative. The only thing I would like to see added (or it might already be there) is the ability to auto schedule things in advance. For example say I want to add something to every Monday, or read every Wednesday I want to ability to schedule it continuously on auto. The only way I’ve seen to do this is to schedule it manually a few weeks into the future which is kind of a pain.
Not sure
by pkma46 on 2021/03/15 23:39
Not Sure yet if this todo list is simple enough to be useful. I want to have a month to use and to see if it is helpful but not irritating.
Best todo app
by icanfathom on 2021/03/15 19:59
I’ve used quite a few, and Todoist is the best BY FAR. The natural language parsing for due dates and reminders is a killer feature. It also syncs quickly and flawlessly between devices. Overall a fantastic experience.
Very convenient
by deeachee on 2021/03/15 19:47

Checked off
by phatphatphat on 2021/03/15 01:16
I get satisfaction out of seeing that I did get some stuff done...can u put the checked off things at the bottom of my list checked off so I feel like at least I did those things, then when I’m done acknowledging myself for getting those done I can delete than if I want? Thanks. This is such a useful app for we who are a little overwhelmed!!!! 😀
Thank Goodness!
by saxaxe on 2021/03/10 19:46
I was a loyal user of Apple’s built in Reminders. But when my personal to do list disappeared one day due to a software upgrade, I needed help fast. Todoist to the rescue!!! I love being able to type a due date without scrolling or clicking, I love the organization with an inbox and projects, and I love feeling like nothing is slipping through the cracks. Thanks, Todoist. You’re the best!
A bug on the scheduled tasks
by Gaurav Satwalkar on 2021/03/10 15:01
I noticed that a scheduled task due “today” still shows “tomorrow” on the section’s list view. if I pop-it up, then it shows “today” thus have conflicting statuses. I should have captured a screen shot but missed it in hurry. Is it a known issue to be resolved? if yes, it is definitely high priority. I will revise my review and a star is only meant for this feature.
Really wanted to love it, discovered this...
by Shmacto on 2021/03/10 06:10
We all have tasks that we have to complete regularly. Morning routines. Weekend routines etc. In my case these are chemotherapy sessions. We call them reoccurring tasks. They are super critical to maintain a balanced schedule without forgetting our basic repetitive responsibilities. Unfortunately I discovered that when you set up a reoccurring task on Todoist it basically only creates 1 single task and it keeps resetting its due date every time upon completion of this individual task. This means that the task, at every given moment will only show ONCE. If you examine your schedule more then one reoccurrence time period ahead any further future reoccurring tasks will NOT show. Why is this a problem? Well imagine having a dozen of reoccurring tasks. All due every day, week or month. How could one possibly plane more then the reoccurrence time period ahead if they can’t SEE the scheduled tasks ahead? How can one confirm a doctor appointment? or confirm a job interview? Or responsibly plan anything ahead? It’s a really basic need when it comes to scheduling... It is so obvious that your schedule ahead should SHOW, and YES even if it’s a reoccurring task. Todoist replied to me that I could integrate their software with a Google Calendar in order to view my future reoccurring tasks. To me it sounds absurd to have to use another scheduling platform to be able to properly and responsibly schedule ourselves especially when Google Calendar as a free app offers this basic functionality of being able to VIEW your future reoccurring tasks while Todoist a paid app of $40/year does not offer this basic functionality. A bit of a shame and disappointment from such a potentially sophisticated and well designed app.
Easy to use and important to see daily

When something pops into my head, the app goes into my head. Fill it out !

This app is simple and gives me exactly what I’m looking for.
wonderful experience

todolist is a lovely app. 第一次使用就爱上了她带来的体验。为用户考虑的很完善,界面美观,性能稳定。
It doesn't have recurring task option
by fatima_mo on 2021/03/07 00:04
I like this app a lot. But I wish it had an option to add a recurrent task. I do some tasks daily. So I need to add that task one by one for everyday, it would be much easier if there was an option to add a recurrent task!
Simply the best so far for professionals with date critical needs
by Dvlrbbt on 2020/09/23 11:56
If you’re just looking for an app to help you plan your garage cleaning and family vacation there are better looking and simpler options out there. If you need an app for professional use, where due dates and times are not merely “goals” (yeah I’m looking at you “GTD” method) but are actual real world cannot be missed deadlines, this is the app. If you need an app that allows you to have those dates appear in your calendar (your calendar, not just the app’s upcoming forecast of events) this is your app (the Fantastical 2 way sync is killer). If you prefer not to spend more time trying to figure out how to do things in the app than actually doing them (did anyone say “Omnifocus“) this is the one. Collaboration, ability to easily add notes and attachments on both the project and task level, straightforward interface, relatively easy to learn functions with good web documentation, TEMPLATES (a feature that for some inexplicable reason other apps seem to openly resist adding but is a no-brainer for those who have the same task and deadline structure for multiple projects, like I don’t know pretty much anyone who is in business and/or works with standardized contracts), sub-tasks, multiple reminder options, this one does it right. You will not see the benefit of the forgoing without the premium subscription, but $38 a year is a bargain for the features and functionality you get.
Best Task Manager I’ve Used to Date
by Link100 on 2020/04/26 13:38
It’s remarkable to me ToDoist isn’t ranked higher on the productivity charts because it easily eclipses anything that I’ve ever used before. It’s gorgeous (I prefer dark mode, but there are more themes) It integrates great with the GTD methodology (my preference) but whatever your system, it’s robust enough that you should be able to integrate it well. I love what they did with Karma, their gamified point system (but I would like to see this expanded). You can tell that the creators stay up-to-date on best practices and they regularly update a pretty informative blog that is enjoyable for a productivity junky like me. I used it for 24 hours and pretty much decided I NEEDED premium which is easily the best $3 I spend every month. It’s important to distinguish between what this is and is not though. It does not teach you how to be productive. It is not a good place to do high level goal setting, visioning, and planning. It is not a calendar. It also doesn’t focus you on the task at hand. The app is a Task Filing System. It is a utility that will enhance your workflow with those other things. It will work great for anyone who needs to make a to-do list, but those who chose to educate themselves on actual task management theory will get the most out of it. I hope it hits the top of the charts!
Awesome Program
by kdchavez on 2021/04/11 16:42
This is an awesome program & I use it all the time. I don’t have a family, so I’m glad this app doesn’t have all the other stuff other apps have for family schedules & such. I’m also not a big time executive who needs a bunch of other features, keeping track of meetings & clients. I’m a simple personal on disability, who likes to keep track of projects around the house & her shopping list. I also use it for my part-time position I have working at home to keep track of what reports I need to finish. The other added features I love is the ability to use it with my Apple Watch I just won in a contest & the ability to use it with Alexa, which being disabled & having mobility issues, this is a major convenience. The one bad thing, which is why I gave it only 4 stars, is the inability to use some of the features without buying the premium version. Being on disability, once the rent & the rest of the monthly necessities are paid, I don’t even have enough left over to go out to lunch, let alone pay subscription fees. I don’t mind paying one time charges if the program was worth it, such as this one, since I know the time & energy that goes into the development, but those of us who are mostly on limited, fixed income, who also must still work part-time to pay bills, don’t have the money to pay any kind of subscription fees. Anyways, that’s all. Just wish I had access to the other features, so I could really utilize the app to its full potential.
I don’t all to do list, this is by far my favorite
by MrWinky on 2017/12/20 04:20
I’ve used every to do list out there. Every complex, GTD, you name it I’ve used it. I’ve used it on every platform from windows, mac , iPad, iPhone. There are couple things that make this one of the best. It’s not perfect, but I’d rather have a good list that is visually intuitive, consistent across all platforms, simplifies complex situations, but still allows for the complexity. More importantly they are very fairly priced, for the incredible amount of features that other to do organization lists attempt and charge more for. Whether it is the desktop, the iPhone or the iPad, their interface is excellent and consistent. It’s very easy To maintain a to do list when one is calm or has few projects. But when I am stressed, and have a lot to put in the lists quickly, ToDoIst make it easy, intuitive, consistent so that I actually want to use the application. In simple terms, this is the first application that as my lists and projects and tasks add up, I don’t feel visually overwhelmed and don’t dread opening the application to see what’s awaiting me..
Just started using this- will give final rating in a few months l:
by kimandfamily on 2020/06/16 05:56
A few days ago I downloaded Todoist because 1) the app was recently approved to be installed on my work iPhone issued by my employer and 2) I also need an effective organizational method for personal use. Until I started using Todoist my life was countless Post-Its at my work and home workstations as well as Calendar iPhone Entries/Alerts that had to be manually duplicated between my Work iPhone and Personal iPhone. As a bonus I upgraded my account (it’s created under my personal email) to Premium as a gift to myself cuz my birthday is in a couple of weeks. :-D I already love this app: before I knew I had a lot to juggle but now that I actually SEE the amount of incomplete tasks on my plate it’s a miracle that I haven't dropped more balls than I usually do! I'm already sleeping better because I'm not up in bed half the night staring at the ceiling and worrying that I have forgotten or will forget to do something important. Go ahead and upgrade to premium - a year costs about $34 which is less than most of you who are considering downloading this app spend on BS items in a week- you know this.! Free yourself! - Kim
Best I’ve tried (and I’ve tried a lot)
by MoonUnit137 on 2020/05/16 19:20
Todoist is full featured and actively developed with many thoughtful surprises, large and small throughout. Over the last ten years I’ve tried many task management apps and methodologies. I most recently tried several of the major ones a few months ago. Todoist is the best I’ve tried. It’s elegant to use if you want to keep it simple and has the capabilities necessary to implement a more rigorous task management system like GTD. This ability to keep it simple and facilitate complexity is important, I think, as it takes a while and some experimentation for a person to settle on a task management methodology that works best for them, often drawing from several different methodologies. Other popular task management apps are more limited, and after using them simply for a while and realizing you want more, the features that would allow you to do more aren’t present and you have to move to another app. This has happened to me a few times and was a waste of time. I wish I’d just gone with Todoist from the start.
I’m telling everyone about this great app
by HomeManager on 2019/06/10 13:01
Whether you work outside the home, have a home business, or are a stay at home mom or student, this app and a few good systems can transform your productivity. I use a conglomeration of methods that I gleaned from 3 books: Getting Things Done, The 12 Week Year, and Do More Better. Those foundational books combined with this app have tripled my productivity already. I’ve tried several others, from OmniFocus to Cozi to Habit Tracker and more. I manage a home business, am a home school teacher, as well as manage my house. This is the first app that has given me the freedom to use my systems in an effective manner. My stress has reduced as I’ve found an app that lets me dump all of those tasks from my head and place them in an app that I trust to organize them in a manner that keeps me from missing anything. I wish it was a bit more intuitive in applying GTD, but I’ve managed some work arounds for setting up Reviews and other important GTD basics. Give this a try. You wont be sorry.
Good, but needs undo feature
by Ktscopes on 2020/04/11 11:22
This app is intuitive and has good features. I only have the free version, but I have been happy except for one thing, the importance of which is escalating. Unless I am blind, Todoist has no undo feature. So if I accidentally delete a task I can’t get it back. This has happened to me more than once and the last time my task had a long list of subtasks. All disappeared. Given that the method for deletion is to click the circle to the left of the task, when in other apps a circle in that spot is used for selecting, it seems there ought to be an undo. Otherwise, it’s a great app. Update: The developer contacted me with instructions to use while viewing my project. I don’t have a project, just a simple list, and when I click on the three dot icon at the top right, I do not see “Show completed tasks,” but only “Select tasks.” Update again. The developer contacted me a second time and confirmed that deleting a task can only be done in project view, which was disappointing. But the developer’s commitment to communication is splendid, which counts for a lot in my book.
Finally almost perfect
by CoreyIn140 on 2019/10/24 15:47
The new overhaul of Todoist has made it feel fast, reliable, and easy. Honestly, it’s the best thing to happen to Todoist since they released 1.0. This is now my go-to recommendation for anyone looking for an easy, understandable, and reliable task manager because it can be simple if someone doesn’t want to spend too much time dealing with it, or robust if someone is looking for something to center their entire life around. There are only a couple features missing, like matching system dark mode (so I can choose one of the fun color themes for the header but still have a dark screen), setting projects to always sort by a criteria (so every time I open them I don’t have to click sort by date), and setting a start time for my day (so when the clock rolls over to midnight I don’t suddenly have a red bubble with a giant list of things to do, I should be able to choose the time of day that starts). If these three features were added, I don’t think I could come up with a single complaint. Todoist on iOS really is that close to perfect at this point.
Want to love it BUT...
by TreehousePJ on 2018/12/10 13:40
Overall I like the program and how it operates BUT the reporting is pretty much non existent. I have been requesting a simple report for Completed Task by Project for a range of dates since I started using this program over 3 years ago. I can’t think of a more basic easy to program report that would benefit many people. They tell me to us IFTTT (which I tried ...doesn’t work well or give me a concise format) or export to spreadsheet (just something else to do). Why not just add a Report button where one selects project and entered range of dates ...vu wa la...like magic! I don’t want to switch programs but I am currently looking ... to me this is such an obvious feature I just assumed (my bad) that I would have this reporting capability. While I’m on a roll, my second pet peeve, on the iPad, when you go into a Project, everything is sorted by date entered and you can’t change it... nobody cares about date entered ...we need due date order default or at least the ability to change sort order.
Sanity saving
by CineasteSF on 2019/10/13 06:35
I don’t usually write app reviews, but Todoist has been invaluable for me. Until now, I’d gotten along just fine keeping track of things by using a handwritten weekly list of tasks, supplemented by an ongoing list of tasks in my calendar. I’m semi-retired, and don’t have that much to keep track of. However, I recently assumed responsibility for coordinating the care of a friend who needs 24/7 care, dealing with all her insurance, doctor appointments, managing her finances, and many other critical tasks that were overwhelming. I turned to Todoist and it was remarkably easy to learn to use. Not everything was completely intuitive, but the ability to organize tasks into separate projects, and the flexibility of viewing tasks allows me to manage more than I could hope to without the use of the app. The seamless coordination between using it on my iPhone and iPad means I can add or review tasks whenever and wherever I am. I paid for the upgrade and it’s well worth it to be able to add comments.
Fantastic Update
by JJdizzle778 on 2019/10/23 15:31
Been using Todoist for almost 3 years now I’ve tried MANY different Task/Project Managers even following them closely and trying them out after they would get huge updates. There are a lot of great productivity apps now days but I always find myself coming back to Todoist as it’s simple yet powerful and in my opinion has the best balance of simplicity and features in one package. Throw in the fact that the team at Todoist is constantly improving it with this new Foundations Update it’s gone to a new level. There are still things they need to tweak but overall it’s been great. Also just when I thought this app couldn’t get any better it did with the Foundation’s update and with word of it adding Trello style boards as a future option I see things only getting better. I highly recommend not just trying this app but learning the ins and outs and living with it for a month to really get the full experience of how great this application is. Keep it up Todoist Company!!
A must-have app! LIFESAVER!
by thee.lauren.morin on 2019/07/08 18:37
This app has made my job far less confusing, chaotic, and frustrating! I am an organized person naturally, and I write everything down! But notebooks make me crazy because they are hard to keep organized without a bunch of things crossed out and arrows pointing everywhere! This app allows me to write down what needs to be done, organize it by project, make priority levels, etc. It also works as a calendar to alert me when certain things are due. And I LOVE that I can mark something as complete, and it disappears completely! No ugly, crossed out words! And maybe the best part is that it’s online based, so whatever I add to my list through my phone gets added to my list on my computer! So I don’t have a hundred sticky notes and scrap pieces of paper with notes written on them all over my desk. I always have my phone on me, so I can pull up the all and add stuff in a second! This is the app that I have always wanted!
Removing functionality for its users
by JJ0185 on 2021/04/29 18:17
We regrettably moved to this app when our beloved Wunderlist was no longer supported. It has been tolerable at best, with ugly interface, non-intuitive design and is clearly meant more for an office like/scheduling mindset and not a day to day list app for groceries, etc which we tried to use it for. For example trying to write “1/2” as in “1/2 a cup” is autocorrected to a date “January 2nd” prompting add to calendar every time...so annoying. Again, we tolerated this app, but today I get an email saying they are GIVING us MORE features from their subscription service, how generous! However, they are REMOVING the ability to make more lists (which they call “Projects”) which is the PRIMARY FEATURE OF A LIST APP! We never wanted or asked for the other features. This app is useless to me now. Will find a replacement, of which there are many! What a shameless way to attempt to squeeze money from the people already using your app. It is truly appalling and you should be ashamed. Instead of being creative and developing new features someone would actually want to pay for you are now putting limits on the people who already using the app and changing the way it functions for them. Gross.
Switched from The iPhone X’s Native To-Do List App
by ticothep on 2019/07/01 17:47
I am a huge proponent of to-do lists and have been using Trello and the iPhone X’s native to-do list app. However, I had recently been recommended by a friend to try the Todoist app! Due to my overly-organized nature and my desire for increased efficiency, it was hard for me to imagine switching over from my current organization-flow to this new app because I was worried that I’d have to re-learn a new way of organizing my tasks and to-dos. However, I couldn’t have been MORE wrong when I finally made the switch! The Todoist app is fast, intuitive, minimalistic, and so focused on eliminating the distractibility of inessential features that most other to-do apps include. Actually, I was SO impressed with the Todoist app that I am currently exploring the possibility of integrating the “Twist” app (another product made by Doist) as a main mode of communication for the leadership teams at my Church! Thank you, Doist!
Almost perfect
by Wacnocab on 2020/11/10 07:06
I made the switch over to Todoist from TickTick and absolutely love it. It syncs incredibly well with my iPhone, my Apple Watch, and to my Windows computer which I use at home and at work. I love how minimal the UI is, the layout, and how solid everything feels in comparison to other task manager apps out there. Even the community on Reddit, Instagram, and Twitter are incredibly helpful. Literally the only thing stopping me (and many others) from switching, is how we cannot manually arrange tasks in Today. In the current beta, there are sorting options, but I cannot drag and drop a task that doesn’t have a time associated with it in Today’s tasks with one that does. It bounces right back to the bottom. Many others including myself like to layout their tasks manually the night before, in the order they anticipate doing them. But if you try to do this, some tasks bounce back to the bottom of the list which is somewhat annoying. But otherwise, fantastic app! I see why this is the #1 task manager app
Excellent
by Beau-Ford on 2018/10/25 01:23
I have not found a better overall package out there. Once you really dig into what you can do with Todoist, it’s much more powerful than its simplistic interface reveals at first. I chose Todoist because of its multi platform and web sync, but after trying countless other options including Things, OmniFocus, 2Do and some Evernote extensions, I kept coming back to ToDoist. Once I really embraced the strengths, like rescheduling options, forwarding emails, and using priorities, I was able to piece together a very effective system. It’s not often I find an app that sticks around. It’s easy to procrastinate and spend valuable time looking for the perfect task management system, but I’ve found that what I really was looking for was both a system and a tool. I wanted a GTD app conceptually, but my roots are based on Franklin Covey. I was able to achieve an awesome hybrid approach of what works for me using the functionality of Todoist.
Helpful for College Students
by Idaho Slat on 2020/12/01 17:01
Ive been using this app over the last 3 years in college and have found it incredibly helpful to manage the large amount of assignments and projects through the semester. It’s ability to clearly organize a semesters worth of material at one time and only show the pressing tasks from each class folder makes my life easier not having to go in and add projects every week or sort through separate class folders to find what’s due and when. I love that tasks can easily be shifted when due dates change. and with the most recent updates, as well as my upgrade to premium, this app has taken it to the next level. Being able to see all upcoming tasks past just one week as well as synced on my google calendar has made the complex homework schedule easily visualized and just so much easer to plan and tackle. Here’s to another 3 years of not missing an assignment.
Game changer
by ThisNicknamesAreTooComplicated on 2019/11/24 14:38
With digital tools, such as email, calendars, cloud, etc, having to actually use paper for organization is becoming a thing of the past. The one item I could never find a solution for was to dos. Because of this, I still carried a paper to do calendar (like you had in middle school) to help me track things I wanted to get done. I tried all sorts of ways to get rid of this (emails, calendar invites, etc), but none gave me the visual list or ease of just writing it down. This app changed all that. It’s functions not only replaced my calendar, but actually improved as I could organize them by project, search them, and move them around. It sychs quickly between my iPhone and iPad, and has become one of my most important apps. My company gives us office 365, which includes Microsoft to do. I’ve experimented with this, but its functionality or ease is no wear close to this app!
INCREDIBLE productivity app, highly recommend
by mattiesl0an on 2020/10/20 02:45
My boyfriend got me on this app and within the day I had purchased a monthly subscription. I used to always be a physical planner person until this app, which is so much more helpful in getting things done because it sends you notifications of what you need to do. I also love that instead of a typical calendar app where you schedule things in by the day, on Todoist you just type in what you need to do and when and it automatically puts it on the calendar. I also love that you can organize with different boards and make sub tasks. You can also make boards with other people that have the app and it will notify the other person of things that need to get done. For example my boyfriend and I have a list together and we can put stuff on there that we need to do together!
Almost Perfect
by bigbossfan on 2020/10/11 19:19
I am very task-focused so I have tried all the different to-do and project management apps looking for the perfect one. I keep finding myself coming back to Todoist. I really like the simplicity of setting up a project or a task and the great syncing capability across all of my devices. The fact that I can assign a task to another family member is also a plus. Also, having a web app allows me to use it at work as well. My only complaint with the app is that, when you finalize a repeating task after midnight, it does not show up the following day. Instead, completion of the overdue task is treated as completion on the current day. This is a major pain as I work late and often complete daily tasks after midnight. There should be an option to change this behavior by the user. Other than that, this is a great app and one I use every day. If the developer would just fix this one thing, I’ll never feel the need to stray again.
Great app!
by dice90 on 2020/06/03 14:36
This is exactly the app I needed to help keep track of tasks, to dos, and projects in both my personal and work life. The seamless syncing between my iPhone, Mac, Windows PC and iPad really make this a great app to use for seamless sync. I’ve also got my wife signed up and we work together on a lot of home projects around our small farm. This allows us to collaborate, add tasks to projects and notes about the tasks. I do think it would be better if notifications were not a premium only feature as without notifications, this product really doesn’t work for many folks as a reminder replacement. It’s also a little discouraging that there isn’t a family option... I’d love to include my kids’ chores on this and use it to teach them how to organize their tasks in life. Maybe a set cost for families up to a certain size? Outside of the package offerings, I think this is a fantastic product and recommend to a lot of people!
Great app...when it works
by TooFastForITunes on 2019/04/22 12:06
Today I showed up for work and opened the app to get my day started, and was greeted by a message saying that my “session has expired.” I tried logging back in. No dice. Then I opened the app on my phone, which also booted me out unceremoniously. Then I went to log in at the web site. Still, nothing. I then tried the password reset link (obnoxiously labeled “Forgot your password?” because, clearly, them booting me out of my lists on all platforms simultaneously is the result of user error). I entered every single email account I have, and was told that they have no record of my account. I looked for a support number to call, but it would seem that they don’t offer support over the phone. Gee, I’m so glad I’ve made this app an integral part of my workflow. I hope whenever they figure out what went wrong with their database that they’re able to recover the THOUSANDS of tasks that I entered!
Almost there
by justjoshin11 on 2021/02/24 04:44
Todoist is the best option on the market for both personal and work productivity. I work in tech and use todoist to manage everything, including shared lists with my partner (e.g. grocery shopping list, gifts, vacations, family planning). I use todoist on my phone, over voice through Alexa, and right next to email via an Outlook plugin. Alexa and Todoist are a match made in Heaven. During the day, while I’m working, I can just say things to add to my to do list out loud in less than 5 seconds vs the 20+ seconds it takes to use my phone. It’s amazing! However, in my workflow, I delete tasks frequently, and the design of Todoist in any environment (iPhone, Alexa, web) does not make it easy to delete. I tried setting a default swipe action on my phone, but delete is not an option. This is the one feature that if I had, I would move all my list making to todoist - but for now, I need to keep some lists on paper.
Now Todoist is Perfect
by Adam AMH 7 on 2020/02/23 22:35
I left Todoist for Things. Then I left Things for Moleskin. Then I left Moleskin for the updated iOS Reminders app. I’m back with Todoist! They’ve changed the clunkiness of everything and have added sections and the ability to check off tasks on their mobile platforms the way they always had it on a Mac. The sections addition(I’ve been gone for awhile) was one of the features that made me go to Things...except I lost the intuitiveness of Todoist when I did that...Now I can do the same thing with Todoist and better consolidate and organize everything without feeling overwhelmed with so many projects in the task column. Sub-tasks are also evolving with Todoist. I’m very pleased to be back and happy Todoist has adapted and evolved to stay on top. I’ll save you the trial and error...Stay with Todoist, otherwise you’ll eventually be back anyway.
A review of your life
by Best review of your life on 2020/11/08 01:34
So I’m only 12 years old but I have an iPhone and you know how iPhones have that remind app where you can set reminders or whatever I just don’t find that convenient so I was scrolling through my phone and I was like I need to find an app that helps me remind me about stuff so I search up an app and I tried to do list this app and I’m like oh my god yeah let me try it out I try it out was wonderful I have to help my aunt tomorrow and I’m sending reminders right now and unlike other apps there is like no date like oh tomorrow Wednesday Monday whatever next week and this actually helps with that next week November this when Tuesday Monday Wednesday Thursday this house so I just like it and you know it does not need in my personal opinion it doesn’t need any updates I mean I think it’s perfect the way it is
Perfect app for the lazy or generally unmotivated
by vix025 on 2021/01/16 02:33
I’ve tried so many organizational apps. Like so many. I was already preparing myself to delete this one in a week, because they never work out for me. It’s ridiculous how easy it is to use. You can be the ultra-organized, section for every part of life person on Todoist, or you can be a simple write it down and check it off when you’re done kinda person. The ease of Todoist is just crazy, I’ve never found an app so simple and powerful at the same time. It has really, really changed things for me. I almost hate to say that an app has changed my life but it totally has! I am so much more organized and get my stuff done on time. I only use it for tasks - Gcal is for meetings - and I never find myself procrastinating anymore. It’s so great. My fellow unmotivated people - please download this
Great if you are willing to use it on your web platform or computer too
by Nararabbit on 2019/10/06 17:07
There are too many critical features that are unavailable on the iOS version. You can’t print form the app. That’s right, you can’t print! You also can’t sort your daily to do list by the priority you set (rendering that pointless in my mind), add comments, or several other things in the iOS app. It’s there mainly to check things off, remind you through notifications (which are either toggled on or off - you cannot turn on notifications for *only* high priority tasks for example), and allow you to adjust dates and times. A lot of todoist is great, but I wouldn’t recommend it for someone who plans to use ONLY or MAINLY their phone if they want to take advantage of Todoist’s power. It’s really a supplement, not the best standalone due to its limitations. I hope in the future they’ll give it more support because I do think the software is great overall, I just don’t want to feel tethered to a computer so much.
I’m “scatterbrained”, but this app has changed my life.
by LxSaka on 2021/03/03 18:52
WOW. Todoist GETS me. I continue to be grateful for such a clean, gorgeous, and amazingly user friendly app. I do not usually make in-app purchases, but I knew without a doubt that it would be worth it to pay for the Premium account, and that is coming from a millennial who is VERY stingy on app purchases or upgrades. I used to have trouble organizing my thoughts—EVERYTHING is important. My old “to-do” lists (yes, there were multiple) were ineffective. I would get overwhelmed and it would render me useless. I’m telling you—your search ends here. I’d been looking for something like Todoist for years. I HIGHLY recommend what’s called the “Getting Things Done (GTD)” method of organization if you’re anything like me. Take the app’s quiz to check out your needed productivity style! Glad to have Todoist in my life BIG time.
Best task management platform in the world
by Sha-maniac on 2018/12/30 23:38
I discovered Todoist several years ago and have growing with it ever since they got started. Im a single mom running my own business, manage a team, and I’m your typical entrepreneur with so many things to do and stay on top of. For a having a “adhd” type mins with so much creativity ... Todoist is my Brain!! I’m able to manage and entire business process and checklist with Todoist. My robot assistant works for me out of Todoist and helps me get projects done.

Not only that but I’ve sold this platform off to ALL OF MY CLIENTS and it’s really making a difference in their life as Real Estate Agents to keep a process flow in tact!!! I feel stress free and everything in one place!! Thank you Todoist!!!
Good but some improvements to make
by rock&rollruinedmylife on 2021/04/16 19:32
Would be nice to be able to have a monthly view of tasks, not daily. I’d like to see what my big tasks are for the month, be able to filter by priority(s) or tag(s) or project(s). I’d also like to be able to add DEPENDENCIES!!!! I don’t want to see the tasks that I can’t do at the moment mixed in with the ones I can. Also please allow us to pick any custom color (like an RGB slider). Other apps that integrate with this app allow for that, so feels behind the times and less compatible. Finally, please make it easier for us to undo when the app automatically turns a date written in our task item into its due date. I don’t want to disable this automatic feature, because about half the time I enter a date that is in fact the date I want it to be set to. The way Fantastical handles it is a step in the right direction.
Changing my life for better.
by Memfistony on 2020/01/29 04:45
I’m a pro-procrasnator. But this Todoist has changed my life, step by step. Application is simple to use but powerful. Cross platform and pick up and resume on any device. It helps me at office and at home as well as on vacation. You can attach document or screenshot , create projects setting tags sub tasks and comment and so on. As well as share as group task. It sounds complicate but you always start simple. Daily todo and inbox is where you begin with. Then you expand on work project. Mine is like main income. Side income, Youtubeproject. Podcast. Travel, home project, personal improvement. Automobile, pending(require others response) Bills and so on. I can’t say enough how much I love this app. And their update is always on point and make life easier every time. I appreciate you guys, Doist family.
Todoist - It is the system!!
by Rate Mint on 2018/12/24 13:32
I have tried several systems for managing my projects and tasks and Todoist is the system that I find most helpful. The number one biggest reason is the Gmail extension that allows me to convert emails to tasks and the tasks are linked to the email. Most of my tasks arrive as emails. With Todoist, I convert these emails to tasks quickly and easily. The second reason I find Todoist productive is the wide range of platforms on which Todoist is available. I use Todoist on my iPhone, my iPad, Windows, Gmail, Outlook.... I can organize tasks by projects and view the tasks by due date or project. Because I use it on every platform I have, I can access everywhere. As someone said, the best task/project manager is the one you use regularly. I use it everyday and learn to do more with it.
This helps my anxiety
by cwhy89 on 2021/04/08 14:45
So I deal with chronic anxiety, and if you do too you’ll probably relate to the constant sense of worry that pervades every moment of your life. I recently started using to do lists to put down every single task or event I could possibly worry about, categorized by my core values (well-being, family, home maintenance, volunteering). So now when I find myself worrying just to worry, when my brain is looking for something to worry about, I simple remind myself that it’s all mapped out on my to do list and it’s all being taken care of. It’s helped reduce my daily anxiety levels a good bit. I started off using the free iPhone Reminders app, which worked alright, but it didn’t offer the additional organizational structure that Todoist offers. Now I simply look at the Today section of Todoist and everything is conveniently laid out in order of priority for the day, which allows me to be super productive. It’s also really easy to edit tasks, push them off to another date, etc. and I really love the “Upcoming” list that shows you the future tasks coming up soon. I love the feature to make custom filters as well. This a very robust app that has helped me take hold of my daily life and be more productive with less effort.
Great balance of features but a few bad UI choices
by drtimhill on 2017/11/03 09:24
There are a lot of great todo apps out there, but for me Todoist hits the sweet spot between Uber feature set (Omnifocus) and ease of use (Reminders anyone?). Under a deceptively simple UI is a powerful app, with all the features and integrations I need. I love the intelligent task parsing that makes adding new tasks soooo easy. The multi platform support (and sync between them) works perfectly, and the web app is as full-featured as the desktop apps. However I have to knock off one star for a horrid UI choice on the iPhone ... the almost totally hidden search function. To search all projects you have to first choose a project (yes really) then tap a menu button then tap search and then tap all tasks before you can enter a search term. The app is screaming to have a search icon on the main page .. which oddly the Mac app does indeed have.
Helpful for organizing
by Twerkules on 2020/06/13 02:09
The app is very helpful and excellent at helping me organize my to-do’s especially with reminder notifications! I like that it can automatically insert notification reminders, or put it into individual projects. My wife likes it as well, we did have a bit of a time finding out how to view completed tasks (thanks go to the developer for answering our original review), which really helps her out feeling accomplished even if it was small things. I got this app specifically for ADHD helping me get organized and it is so helpful if you tend to get distracted easily. And to create a project then break it down into sub tasks. Review updated to 5 stars from 4 for customer service and for helping correct (our user error) the only con that we had noticed about this app.
Best To Do app!
by veebee7 on 2020/07/19 17:48
I’d give this app 10 stars if I could, 5 stars aren’t enough. The longer I use it, the more I like it. Really don’t know how I’d efficiently function without it at this point. I doing buy many apps but this one is worth every penny. I've tried MANY list and productivity apps and this one is the best I've found. The Apple watch functionality is a bonus. While sitting at a stoplight or walking around the grocery store, a couple if taps on the watch, speak the new item to add, and there it is in a list. No more fumbling for my phone or a pen or forgetting what I wanted to note before I can log it. Plus! I'm wearing my To Do list on my wrist and can view and check off items from there as I go. Lots of other great features as well. Extremely happy with it!
Needs Some Improvement
by RobWSeattle on 2018/04/12 03:04
I am a heavy task user. I believe a lot of my success in my career was due to my utilizing task management systems. I was utilizing computer based task systems back in 1994. I love them. I’ve been through all the best in class task management apps. Most recently I used Wunderlist, but wanted to get ahead of the Microsoft mess, and jumped to Todoist. Overall Todoist is amazing. I’m doing things I just dreamed of with my old systems. Custom filters - incredible!! I’m a little frustrated with the iOS app though. Here are a couple items that need to be fixed: 1. The ability to duplicate tasks. A lot of my tasks are kind of repetitive in their setup. I know I can use the Mac app to do this. Why can’t I click duplicate task on iOS? This would be great for me. 2. Sorting. They really need to improve sorting. There really isn’t a good way to do it on iOS. I have a label called “priority”. I will only label a few things (up to 5) with this. I want to manually sort these in order of work priority. When I try, it just goes back to alphabetical. Also, I have a project with multiple recurring items by due date. There is no way to sort this by due date. It’s absolutely worthless to view this project on iOS - it’s such a mess because there is no sorting. Please do some work so there are multiple sort options on iOS.
Todoist is great but falls short on UI on iOS
by Basit.Anwer on 2018/12/07 08:05
I am a premium user of Todoist and have implemented GTD with it. I’ll list down pros and cons that I found. Summary First: Todoist itself is excellent because it is just not an app. The NLP feature is the best thing but after everything good, it still needs a lot of UI improvements in the iOS app. Nothing that you can’t live without but would be awesome if it had. Just use it, you’ll love it. And the support is also good. Pros: - The best thing about Todoist is assigning labels, projects and dates. The natural language processing is so helpful in adding new tasks yet it’s still underrated in every review. - Supported everywhere. From windows to Mac. Mobile devices and web. It helps a lot. - Complicated yet it’s simple. - It supports multiple edits Con - The UI could be improved a lot. The individual tasks take a lot of screen space. A compact UI helps you prioritize tasks. There is just too much empty space. - Editing task is a hassle. While adding task is a breeze. You just have to take too many steps to edit a label or a project - We cannot navigate to Projects from Filters even though every task shows the project it is related to and every other Todoist app supports it. - The web UI is a lot better and functional on Safari than the native IOS app.
Recurring task due dates constantly disappear.
by wundering why on 2021/02/23 22:34
A persistent problem with this app is that it constantly forgets most of my weekly, recurring due dates and times. You have one job: help me stay on top of my tasks. It has become a task item in itself to constantly re-enter the due date and time for my recurring tasks. I bought the premium version and contacted support about this a month ago. They told me to close the app, logout, clear the cache, etc. I done all of these things and continue do this every single week because Todoist can’t manage recurring tasks. The app also crashes across my platforms and two days ago, over half of my “Today” tasks randomly disappeared (I had to quit and log back in). I’ve reached out once again, but this time I’ve yet to hear back. Also, adding to do items involve a bit more work than other apps I’ve used, so I’m definitely planning to migrate elsewhere if Todoist doesn’t respond to me and troubleshoot. This app is becoming way more trouble than it’s worth.
Better than wonderlist, but needs better UI
by CountryMom27 on 2017/10/26 02:10
I’ve tried multiple to do apps, and Todoist is pretty good, especially since it isn’t owned by Microsoft and it is accessible on my work PC, my iPad, phone, watch, and personal Mac laptop. That said, the UI needs some work. It’s hard to see what is on my plate for the week, or the next few days, because there is no swimlane/kaiban visualization. If there was a way to visually see my to-dos (sizing by expected time, colored by topic - e.g. work, research, home, kids...), I’d be in heaven. Even if it could integrate with a kaiban app that was decent... but alas, I have the choice between listing everything here and not being able to see it, or being able to see everything in another app like Trello and losing the project organization in Todoist. Lastly, we use outlook (which I hate) for work, and the integration with Todoist is really weak, and there is no integration between Outlook for Mac and Todoist whatsoever. Really shameful.
Fixed recurring event bug - happy again
by hclincoln on 2018/12/28 15:37
Bug has been addressed & all is well. Still not happy that I lost so many recurring events during the bug and have to remember/re-enter them. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I loved this app until about 1 month ago. I’m a premium user and can’t believe how a simple bug can go unaddressed for so long. You’re supposed to be able to schedule recurring events (ex. Everyday, every 3 days, every week), but Todoist drops the recurrence on it’s own after 1-2 days with no warning. If you don’t catch it before marking something done, it is gone for good. This leaves you to hopefully remember the event and then comb through completed events and re-enter them frequently, as in DAILY. Too frustrating for an app meant to simplify life: I’ll be moving on to something else unless bug is addressed very soon.
One (really) annoying missing feature.
by thecommamaster on 2019/02/17 17:46
I absolutely L O V E todoist, but i have two complaints/feature requests. Firstly, why doesn’t a parent project show all the tasks in a sub-project? I have individual projects (like work, personal, shopping), and then sub projects to show the different categories (like a sub-project for items i need to buy at specific stores). It’s great for de-cluttering my app. It would be absolutely WONDERFUL to have an option available to have the parent project show all the tasks in the sub-projects. Secondly, why isn’t the drop-down menu to show sub-projects available when you favorite a parent project? These little things are pretty annoying, and i’d really love for you guys to add these things!
Pretty useful task list organizer
by Ketzlkat on 2019/01/29 19:36
I’ve been using Todoist for a while now. I find this one simple to use, pretty easy to learn and get started right away. I also like that they gave me a fairly generous amount of time to fully evaluate the pro version to decide if I want the additional functionality. Honestly it works great, even without the pro features, but they are a nice bonus. Three things keep me from giving it 5 stars. While using the pro feature, the notifications for reminders are inconsistent. I want a push notification to my phone or watch, but sometimes it works other times it doesn’t. The other thing, and I find this with most task apps, is that you can only assign one date. I would like to have several dates and milestones along the way. I know there are ways around this, but I just want to be able to tell myself to start something on a specific date but keep the due date when it is actually due. When you have sub tasks with different due dates they don’t reference their parent tasks, so it can be a bit confusing if you have several tasks with similar steps or sub tasks to be completed. I also want repeating tasks with sub tasks to refresh when the task refreshes, but I am not sure it works that way.
Overall great app
by Starsigma on 2020/04/30 01:54
I have been using Todoist for a little while now. Overall I really like the app and have been using it for both personal and professional reminders. The only real issue I have with it is the Apple Watch...it is not fully compatible with it..yes it does show the reminders on your watch but you have to get to them right away. If you don’t and swipe down from the notification screen on your watch. If you select a task the app doesn’t respond to allow you to mark it complete or snooze. You have to press down on the item for several seconds before it will bring up the screen to complete the task. This occurs whether you have one task to address or if you have missed multiple . Basically 50/50 shot it responds on the watch. I would give it 5 stars if not for this issue.
Probably Good for Shared Task lists
by LoyalSage on 2017/09/27 14:22
I tried using this for my own personal task list, but like every other task manager, it has no concept of things needing to be done prior to when they are due, so it is more work than it’s worth to get reminded of a task prior to the due date. The default view is Today, which shows things due today, and the reminder emails show you what is due today and past due, which is pretty useless for my specific use cases. So basically it’s probably a good app, but not for me. I wish the Pro subscription had a monthly option (or maybe even just a short trial so you know if the Pro features make it worth using without committing to a year) because I feel like I need to keep using this app that doesn’t work for me since I’ve paid for it it for a year.
Saved me from the hassles of ADHD
by Tasty_Leviathan on 2020/05/09 20:35
I’m a lot less distracted since installing this app. It keeps me focused because I can just look at it whenever I want. It’s compatible with my laptop, which is a huge plus since I sometimes am studying on my computer and I sometimes remember random tasks on the go. It has a few things here and there that it could add, such as being able to alphabetize/sort your projects, leave comments on separate sections, or sort by color, but those are secondary to its most helpful features, which is the ability to sort tasks and not so much projects. Still might be nice to consider. All in all, an excellent app to have if you frequently write lists and forget about them or lose them.
Game Changer
by stanstan89 on 2020/11/02 13:50
Need to get your life together? This app is for you. I have always struggled with digital to do lists and always reverted back to paper but this app is a game changer. Long gone are the days of unorganized to do lists, action items living in a 100 places, etc. Now, my to do lists are organized, prioritized, and in one place. The only reason I gave this app 4 stars instead of 5 is because I think it could really use a notes section. A place to put things that don’t have do dates, but you want to remember when your brain decides to remember it. For instance, I use it to keep a list of things I want to buy, or try one day, but none of those items need to be in a list or with a date. Either way, this app is amazing and will seriously help you level up your adulting game.
Just renewed Premium. 2nd Year 🥇🏆🍻
by Patricia @ EAHWP on 2019/11/23 10:31
I’ve used quite a few to do list type of organizers and none have fit the bill as consistently as Todoist. The one thing I look at that is very important to me when I’m considering downloading an app is I check out how frequently it’s updated. There’s nothing I hate more than loving an app and then finding that it’s kind of abandoned and no one’s really keeping up with the latest versions of iOS. I am so pleased with how smoothly Todoist works on my iPhone, my iPad and even my Mac. I know I can grab it in my browser if I need to and I feel secure knowing I can always have all my personal and professional notes and projects at my fingertips. Couldn’t live without it. Please pardon any typos. Dictating...
