Great
by Mattnsnss on 2015/02/27 19:20
Solid app, the really awesome stuff must be paid for. Can't blame them though, free functionality is plenty for me.
Excellent! Nice, clean simple UI.
by Rohn Patel on 2015/02/27 18:12
Using on my iPhone and Mac to keep my to do list handy.
ToDo made me well done
by shahidullah on 2015/02/27 14:23
It is a fantastic manager for my daily activities.
Great but Outlook extension needs help!
by AllyKo31 on 2015/02/27 12:21
Love that I have a panel in my inbox which shows me my to do list or the day. But I run into syncing and other issues they don't make it flow as smooth. But other than that this app rocks!!
Great App with potential
by Jonathan Robbs on 2015/02/26 11:15
This is a great app. It has the potential to be my go to app for productivity. There is a short learning curve but so far I am very pleased.
Overall great app
by K1mb3r on 2015/02/26 07:00
Great app for organizing what needs to get done. Pros: - elegant app for both ios OS X and windows with seamless syncing - Notes feature works great. Cons: - need to get the premium version to really benefit from the app
Great app, desktop product is better
by Mao ke lan on 2015/02/25 17:18
The app is a great companion if you use the desktop app as your primary to do list. Not sure I would use it as a stand alone app. But the desktop product is definitely worth the money!
Simple and Complicated
by odellcs on 2015/02/23 13:27
I really like how todoist is simple when you get started and you can make it as advanced as you want. I've even done some ifttt things.
Best task list!
by Snaptoist on 2015/02/23 01:43
I've looked at many task list/productivity apps and todoist is by far the best that I have found! I've been using it for about 3 years now and it is a lifesaver. I highly recommend it.
Great program
by Fat little lori on 2015/02/23 00:07
I am trying to utilize this program to keep organized and so far so good. I enjoy having the list everywhere and thats a huge plus over outlook.
Todoist
by Ride the Rockies on 2015/02/22 19:53
I've been a long time fan of GTD and now to see it integrated in an app is awesome! I love how it works across various platforms. No more need to use different apps, it all can be done on Todoist. The syncing across platforms is awesome and integration with IFTTT is great! Haven't forgotten my brellie once!
Best task app out there
by StayLuckyRen on 2015/02/22 17:49
And I've tried them all. Just clicks for me. And I really like that it syncs across so many platforms, being able to have the app open on my PC at work makes a real difference.
Almost perfect
by MiRa : ) on 2015/02/22 07:06
For the past 3 years I used Things as my mobile task manager. I loved the elegant GUI and instant synch with the Mac version. But I use a PC at work and was always looking for a better multi-platform task app with similar elegance and easy of use. I found Todoist and love it. I've used it all week and was impressed with the instant synch across iPhone, Mac and PC. I also found that it integrates well with Outlook, even allowing live emails to be turned into tasks in Todoist. Great!! And I really love the ability to easily indent sub tasks by dragging. This really helps organize work logically for multi-step processes. I'm frustrated by the lack of two key features missing in Todoist but present in most other task apps like Things: bulk selection and drag-and-drop for labels, date changes and other task features. This really slows things down when you are a power user. Hope they'll add these capabilities soon. Otherwise...almost perfect!
Handy
by John.walker.dev on 2015/02/21 20:39
I love web and mobile apps
Love it
by smarticus56 on 2015/02/21 19:54
Simple yet does all I need. Don't need over complicated rivals.
Rate pestering
by josephmscott on 2015/02/21 19:12
Nice app, but pesters for ratings
Ferrari with a one-gallon gas tank
by sbroback on 2015/02/21 06:17
It’s awesome in a way that the tallest building in Iowa is. Yes, it’s feature checklist is quite solid. Was excited to see what was touted as an outlining-centric task app, and paid an astounding $28 for a year of usage. It’s outlining is inadequate, and while issues are easy to fix, people have been waiting years for a few simple enhancements. If you’ve used real outliners before, todoist is like running in water. 1) Outlines don’t collapse on ios. 2) Click a heading and tasks lower in hierarchy don’t appear on ios. 3) Outlining not interactive compared to other drag and drop outliners. 4) Completed tasks just vanish, aren’t greyed out (scores of requests by users for this to be fixed are ignored.) I’m only 2 days in, and my jaw keeps dropping from the glaring omissions. $28??
Functionality, UI, integration
by Bankerboyg on 2015/02/21 06:12
Excellent App for productivity
Clean and Responsive
by ameroche on 2015/02/21 01:46
Up-to-date and smooth. Has the latest "material design" feel.The syncing works great. Works seamlessly across all devices. The only thing missing from it being five stars is you cannot duplicate individual tasks and there is no control over font selection, although the export and import of templates is a very nice feature.
Well designed and intuitive
by Brad Eaton on 2015/02/20 17:50
I'm a serial productivity tool user. Todoist comes as close to what I would have designed myself. The interface is clean and uncluttered.
Outstanding
by Nininperez on 2015/02/20 02:58
Best friendly user, simple, with enough tools to get your agenda organize and get your friend and family involve...I strongly recommend it to anyone looking to organize that honey to do book we all have.
Easy & powerful
by ErDeHe on 2015/02/19 04:42
I use this app for personal and business purposes. What I enjoy most about it is that you can add multiple users very easily and adjust alerts to keep track of other users additions/completions.
Great To Do app
by Rudy’s Air 11 on 2015/02/18 23:50
This is an excellent app. To Do's everywhere! Lots of options. Very helpful to manage complex, multi-project and personal life tasks.
Best To Do List Around
by ALBCOLE on 2015/02/18 05:09
Hands-down the best task management tool on the market. I couldn't operate without it.
Glitches
by RDL DMD MS on 2015/02/17 19:32
Install this app to replace old to do list. Free app does not allow you to prioritize well,easily repeat actions on a regular basis, give alerts etc. without buying premium at 4:29 dollars per year. Also app takes a action that is placed on one day and moves it to another day without prompting. Tasks are sometimes covered up on screen by banner for next day Really don't like this app.
Love. It.
by 512techgirl on 2015/02/17 14:18
Too busy getting stuff done to write any more.
Terrific!
by happy mamma on 2015/02/17 11:13
Only to do list I've liked enough to stick with. Love, love, love the ability to integrate with email. Full version is the way to go.
good
by googleeeeeeeq on 2015/02/17 08:31
just good
Great to-do app!
by exaltedsky on 2015/02/17 01:51
Helps me manage my tasks. Multi platform support is great; a clean & simple UI means it's my go-to!
Amazing
by Stark766 on 2015/02/17 01:22
Only a few days into it, but it's increased my productivity several times over. I was on an excel based to do list. This provided me the flexibility I've been wanting
Constantly crash
by JasonUA on 2015/02/16 23:05
Fix it please
Handy and easy
by Dirty Water Dog on 2015/02/16 20:11
"Elegance" in math means reduced to simplest form. Todist is elegant.
An essential tool in the toolbox
by LowLow68 on 2015/02/16 00:18
I love this program. Can't function without it. Integrates flawlessly with Sunrise and syncs across all my devices. Big ups to the designers.
Great GTD app, lacks task assignment to multiple people
by Zech1979 on 2015/02/15 19:16
- Great app overall, stable on iOS 8.1 - one star less for not supporting task assignment to a group of users
This app isn't really free.
by TH3SPUS on 2015/02/15 05:03
The app is totally useless if you don't drop $28.99 per year on it. Having to pay a ridiculous subscription fee for key features, like reminders, repeating tasks, and notes, ruin this app. There are better to-do list apps that are actually free. Look elsewhere.
Four levels of subtasks
by ActOrBe on 2015/02/14 23:51
I really appreciate the ability to create subprojects and subtasks. I can keep track of a lot of obligations, keep them organized, and get to them when I can. The sharing features are also good. I can see my wife's shared projects, and she can see mine.
Love it!
by Antoniadivya on 2015/02/14 16:07
And love that it integrates with the #1 Slack and my other favorite life-changer Evernote
Great!
by bfrostieone on 2015/02/14 14:57
Great!
Well designed app
by semkirk on 2015/02/14 14:26
New user, only been on the tool for a month but liked it enough to upgrade to the premium tier. Allows me to organize action items by my clients and their projects. Great for quickly marking down things I need to do *as I think of them* which I've learned is very critical for me! If I don't write it down, it didn't happen and if it's an action item - it won't!! At $29/year - a worthwhile investment, especially with the Outlook option. Now just need Todoist to add the ability to "send to Todoist" in an open Outlook message, like you can "send to OneNote." That would make it five stars.
This is one of the 3 best apps I have ever used.
by amny1976 on 2015/02/14 01:43
This app is amazing. It truly puts the "smart" in smart phone. I am a premium user -- and to have this app on a every device I use is worth the price. I am more productive than I have ever been and don't forget anything. Once I put it in todoist I don't worry about ever forgetting it. I use the app for months long projects to the most mundane tasks. The text reminders on the premium version are a life saver. This is an app I use every single day. I have downloaded hundreds of apps, but have never been so satisfied with an app to actually write a review.
Helps me focus
by Fee nix on 2015/02/14 00:49
I push to complete tasks that I would normally procrastinate on... Simply because this app puts them in a simple but hard to ignore format
Tried others - this one was the winner!
by Kelli Pdx on 2015/02/13 18:31
I tried a few different project management and to-do list apps and systems. But Todoist by far outweighs the others. I love its simplicity, the ability to set multiple reminders and how everything syncs so well between my computer, phone, and with others that I've shared projects or tasks with. Love this app! It helps me be more efficient and productive and not miss deadlines. It's great for both my work and my personal errands.
Well thought out design!
by MattyBrooks on 2015/02/13 17:06
Efficient, streamlined and through app.
Love this app! Please fix the notifications!
by mb20matchstick on 2015/02/13 09:44
I love this app. It's everything I've been looking for in a todo app. However, I cannot get the mobile notifications to work for recurring tasks. I get them on my desktop and in gmail, but not on my phone. Also, when I mark one as done that is a daily task for instance I get a message that says the next task is due 2 days later and not the next day. I indeed get the task in my list the next day but the popup is always wrong when it is marked done for the day. Thanks.
Switcher from OF
by spr0ut on 2015/02/12 20:35
I am a recent Todoist convert and I have to say that it is really meshing well with my life and workflow. My previous solution was very good, but at the end of the day it just had far too much going on to make me as productive as possible. The sync is instant and accurate. This service has the right amount of features to make it very useful but not overwhelming. Light users should start with the free account to see how it works for them, but heavier users will find the pro account to be what they really want.
Perfect
by AlexV66 on 2015/02/12 17:23
Perfect
Couldn't do without this app!
by Newnormalsurvivor on 2015/02/12 16:32
I have many projects going on at the same time and this is perfect for keeping all my lists on all my devices so I can always be up to date.
Nice for sharing task assignments
by GrailHunter01 on 2015/02/12 15:18
I like that I can use it on all devices and can create to do items for my son. Then when he completes them I get a notification . Sure beats nagging!
Great app!
by Anonymous academic on 2015/02/11 21:01
I have been testing electronic To Do list managers on and off for ten years. This is the first one I have stuck with for more than 2 weeks. It is easy to learn, simple to use, has enough features to keep me organized and it is visually attractive. Cross-platform synchronization is excellent and the ability to make hard-copy printouts when needed moved this from theoretically desirable to practically useful.
Awesome...and overpriced
by ubermalt on 2015/02/11 18:14
First of all, this is a great app. Best I've ever used for lists, great interface, syncs across devices the works. Sadly, most of the useful functions are in the paid version. I don't have the expectation that apps should be free and have gladly paid up to $10 for a great app but $28 is insane. Was looking forward to using this with Apple Watch but the developers need to put one foot back into reality.
Excellent App & Service
by iAutonomous on 2015/02/11 17:49
I really liked the APP, it's mobility between platforms, and it's versatility. I think the service is worth the payment for the additional features. Give it a try, it's free up front for the basics which really establishes good practice in breaking down highly complex activities to smaller achievable tasks. Good for GTD, and other methods in getting tasks done.
Great
by Wicnx zoaland on 2015/02/11 17:01
Great to do app
Excellent GTD tool
by Ianor on 2015/02/11 13:45
This app and service is awesome, and helps me a TON. I give the whole product, across platforms, five out of five. There are a couple of additional features I would like to see. Hope to see more Siri integration in the future. Would be nice to be able to have a little more date flexibility. But as the dev continues to roll out improvements, I doubt it will be too long before we see those things. Great product.
Get it done app.
by Nikon D5300(HOU) on 2015/02/11 13:41
This app helps you get it done. With the email its a double reminder. Get app a most have for time starved super busy "Don't forget" dads.
Using it daily!
by Sagi Sirius on 2015/02/11 09:15
Great for productivity!
Nearly perfect!
by Dan Goldman on 2015/02/10 23:45
I would give it 5 stars but the Mac version lacks good integration with Mail.app. If it weren't for that small omission I would gladly switch from OmniFocus!
Gets better and better
by CA in PA on 2015/02/10 21:38
I've used Todoist since it first appeared years ago and it has been improved often since then. I've recommended it to more people than I can count. For me the Premium features are worth the small price. AND the ability to print nice-looking customized reports puts it totally in a class by itself. Highly recommended!
Yes
by Fratlite on 2015/02/10 12:07
This is not a professional review, but I love this app. The flow and user interface is smooth. It's handy. There are some premium options that I wish were free -- in a perfect world maybe. Right now, nothing I would really change but I've only had this app for two weeks or so. We'll see how it goes! Definitely recommend though: it has me on my organizational game!
Love it
by Ltk87 on 2015/02/09 18:39
Great app
Love it!
by jBrandon's on 2015/02/09 14:37
This is so smart! I can't wait to buy the paid version.

One thing missing
by Rose142 on 2015/02/09 02:04
One thing missing that makes this app useless for me...the ability to set reoccurring task. Like in the app Errands to do list by Yoctoville.
Great app
by James Nanscawen on 2015/02/09 00:09
It's one of the most used apps that I own. Best GTD app...hands down!
Just what I have been looking for!
by Fbcacct on 2015/02/08 22:22
Great app! The interface with Outlook is just what I have been looking for to handle email requests and follow up. Would highly recommend to anyone who has many departments and groups to support as well as managing personal to do's.
Great to prioritize
by ecogal87 on 2015/02/08 19:12
This helps sets deadlines and work efficiently
Simple and effective
by Swoopjockey on 2015/02/08 14:29
Very useful. Simple. Good integration with gmail. Need to be able to assign multiple people to the same task.
A task manager that gets it
by Hapaning on 2015/02/08 13:22
I've never stuck with any single task management system or used one steadily because they didn't have sufficient cross-platform support and mail integration in the way that I needed it. Todoist anticipates everything I could possibly want and then delivers. The subscription is well worth the ability to leave comprehensive notes and other features. It's become an integral part of how I work now and I can't imagine life without it.
Simple and Effective
by PersonWithADD on 2015/02/08 01:27
This is my tool for managing work and personal to do lists. The sharing feature is highly effective for time-sensitive group action items due to its near-real-time updates and the ability to assign tasks. If only we can upload photos or attachments to to-do items....
Ok, but I dont want to pay for features that are free on Wunderlist
by Zeos786 on 2015/02/07 22:47
Ok app, but you must subscribe to get features that are just as good, if not better, with other apps like Wunderlist. No thanks.
Decent App
by Mappeal on 2015/02/07 18:06
Nice features. I wish it had location-based reminders but everything else is pretty good. I wish it was integrated with iCal but I think the paid version might be. Nice that I can view/update my lists on all my devices.
Great
by Meg678 on 2015/02/07 17:07
I've tried several task management apps, and this is by far the best!
Bitter
by Kentsatwat on 2015/02/07 14:35
I like this app, it is great and performs wonderfully. Prompting a user away from an productivity application to review an application is counter to what I am attempting to achieve. Asking for reviews is never okay!
Best to do list
by Ktlovesbooks on 2015/02/07 01:16
I love this app, great features. Best to do list app I've tried. I only wish I could see my finished tasks without having to subscribe to the premium version.
Good App
by Misplaced Rebel on 2015/02/06 23:46
The main positive is that your tasks are accessible from virtually any device. The printing and viewing of archived tasks could be better but is acceptable. I do not like any subscription type of app and this one is limited unless you buy a premium account. Subprojects are nice as well. I like the look and feel of Things by Cultured Code better but it is a Mac only platform.
Great app
by TS Engstrom on 2015/02/06 12:09
Notice an immediate difference in productivity, organization, and a desire to get more done. Makes it easy to manage all your to do lists in one place. A beautiful, minimalist app that only makes you want to use it more and naturally, use it more effectively. Get it.
Simple Entry and easy to attach docs
by Jadian49 on 2015/02/06 09:19
I am a fan of the app. Easy entry and note feature includes attaching documents (premium feature).
Great App
by lindseyleitner on 2015/02/06 02:16
I love that it is easy to use and has a nice clean design. I have tried so many different ones and this one finally stuck!
Best for keeping on top of things
by Peter Bowden on 2015/02/05 23:02
I'm always looking for that one app to help me keep organized and track various projects. This one does it by far better than most. The learning curve is simple. The interface clean and efficient. Works well on all my devices - desktop, iPad, iPhone.
Fantastic App
by Jashugan.Red on 2015/02/05 16:49
This is by far the most comprehensive to do app that I have ever used. I especially like the collaboration features, which allows me to share tasks and lists with my wife.
Great and does what I need
by הרברט on 2015/02/05 14:26
Great app, not crazy about the "karma" bit but it does not affect the functionality.
Good choice
by Jmp1112 on 2015/02/04 20:53
Easy to use. Syncs well. I have settled on this after a lot of trials. Recommended.
Useless until it syncs with iOS reminders
by 12345thetim on 2015/02/04 19:38
This app is ancient history until it can leverage Siri better.
Carryover
by CIFI-asml on 2015/02/04 15:12
This app is great - and for the most part it works for me. The only thing that appears to be lacking is a way of completed tasks to automatically move from "today" to tomorrow -- which in turn becomes the new "today." Maybe this is available in the pay for app - but it's too expensive to just "try it and see."
Great
by Heyslick on 2015/02/04 14:13
I really like todoist, I used to use a paper planner, kept all of my tasks and notes. I have since started using Evernote for all of my daily note taking and todoist for all of my daily tasks. The thing I like about todoist is that my tasks don't get forgotten. They stay on my to do list until I either do them. This is an awesome app.
I have tried many and this is the best for me
by samdylan on 2015/02/04 01:07
I have tried many to do apps and this one has the simple features I need in a nice clean interface.
Awesome app

Love Todoist
by gandalfthewright on 2015/02/02 23:33
Todoist is a great app. Really like the simple design and ease of use. I especially like the ability to turn an email into a task.
Great
by Bouncingduck on 2015/02/02 12:27
Best to do list ive tried!
Awesome now that I finally tried it!
by robfuzz on 2015/02/02 06:35
Resisted this app but just dove in and boy is this a functional app. Cross platform wonder. Love the natural language dates especially for recurring tasks. Genius! Well integrated (with room to grow.) Nice looking UI. Worth the premium subscription. This app has come a long way.
Definitely recommend
by F. McReiley on 2015/02/02 04:56
My life has recently become crazy with 3 jobs and lots of schedule and task juggling. I couldn't have managed this transition without Todoist. I've never felt like an organized person until now.
Great business and life tool
by TreyCIII on 2015/02/01 20:23
I love this app. I have it on my iPhone and my Mac. It helps be stay organized and productive in my business and in my personal life. I highly recommend it.
Trouble signing up
by Background app refresh on 2015/02/01 18:18
I would love to try the app.but unfortunately every time I try to sign up with my google account,the app starts having problems and I am forced to restart my iPad
Easy to use, multi platform support
by Jaghond on 2015/02/01 15:43
First todo app that I actually found useful. The most compelling feature is the Multi platform support, I use apps on iOS and windows 7 app. The notification widget on iOS 8 is really cool!
My Favorite Productivity app
by Robert Cooney on 2015/02/01 15:42
I've been using different productivity apps since the iPad came out. This is by far my favorite. I find with all of the different hats that I wear, I need him to be able to identify projects and put the tasks within them, a la GTD. The ability to create recurring tasks, prioritize tasks, and be able to view my week very easily makes this app breeze to use and very effective for my workflow. While it is not nearly as robust as Omnifocus, you'll be up a running with far less frustration.
Best to do app for advanced users
by WLovis on 2015/02/01 13:38
I have used them all and like this the best. The UI could use some upgrades to simplify entry to make more efficient. Adding a "week from now" button would be a big help. The next week button drops everything on Monday.
Robust options, easy interface, synching not great
by Jesse Lee in Boulder on 2014/07/12 16:48
I've been using this app for a little over two weeks. Prior to that, I used Daylite for almost 5 years to manage my tasks, contacts, projects and calendar. I shopped around, reading articles for about a month. I definitely wanted an app that would work on my iPhone and laptop. This app isn't perfect but I love the fact that you can share tasks with other users, have repeating tasks and make sub-tasks. Also the user interface is super easy to use. However, I do agree with the other reviews that the synching is a little buggy. It always pushes things from the desktop to the phone completely and reliably. But things entered on the phone, don't always make it to the desktop and, if they do, any note attachments don't. I've also found that completing a task on my phone means I won't be able to find it on the desktop. So, I try to enter things from the desktop app as much as possible. I'm not too upset because I've found it's not uncommon for apps that involve a calendar and a mobile/laptop synching element, to have similar bugs. On a minor note, I do wish that it automatically ordered tasks by date (soonest to most distant, with no due date coming last) in each project. It does so on the "today" and "this week" home screen but would be great if system-wide. Overall I'm happy with ToDoist and don't even mind paying the $30 per year for a premium subscription, so long as the developers continue to work out the bugs.
Great task manager but lacking in a few areas
by sflomenb on 2015/01/19 00:15
I have tried many task managing apps, and I think this app is the one for me. It has all of the essential features of a todo list app, such as multiple lists. For me, it is absolutely necessary to have all of my todos everywhere I am, on all of my devices. Not only does Todosit support the devices I have (Mac, iPhone and iPad) but 10 other platforms/applications as well. Todosit supports labels (or contexts, in other apps) and filters, so you can view exactly the right todos for the right time, place or any thing else you can think of. With a premium subscription of $28/year, you get notifications (either for time or by location), automatic backups, and notes/file attachment. Additionally, Todoist has an excellent collaboration system, allowing you to invite others to view your projects, and assign specific tasks to yourself or to others. There are a few lacking features. I love how it has a Today Widget and interactive notifications (new iOS 8 features). I would really like to see Handoff support between my iOS devices and Mac. Also, a big big missing feature is end dates for repeating tasks. Otherwise, the app is good. Everyone should try it, it’s free.
Perhaps the best list manager for IOS
by aCanuckintheUSA on 2013/09/15 17:55
I don't normally bother with writing reviews as I am usually too busy to take the time, however I felt that I had to offer a review as this app has exceeded my expectations. I have tried at least seven other "to do" apps including Wunderlist, To do, Tasks, etc- and this app has replaced them all. The best list manager is the one that you actually use- and for me, that breaks down to how easy is it to add an item quickly when you are on the go, the graphic interface, will it update and sync to all my devices (instead of separate lists on separate machines), and Todoist does all of that elegantly. I wish the app shared the same kind of robust interface as an actually application on my laptop (although the web interface is just as good as the IOS version), hence the 4 star rating. This is also one of the very, very few apps that I have actually paid a yearly subscription to because it is so absolutely essential in keeping me on track. Give this app a try- I will be surprised if you are dissapointed.
Excellent and Best of All
by uwabs on 2013/09/28 08:18
I had spent so much money on Task Management Apps ranging from Omnifous to Things and to the bottom of them all but never found any satisfaction in these Apps despite huge sums of money spent on them. They failed to meet what I would consider as the essential requirements expected of a helpful Task Management App in our modern day busy environment. Then when I was about giving up I ran into Todoist in the course of searching for better Task Management App that really meets the need. I bought it and began to check it out. Within minutes and with great delight I subscribed to the Premium Upgrade. I do not think I will ever remember or use the hundreds of Task Management Apps I had earlier purchased from the Itunes Store. This App is excellent and feature rich. The Support is great. I am just simply overwhelmed and can't wait to tell everyone I know to purchase the App without delay. Todoist is the best of them all and may remain the very best for a very long time!!!!
Great iPhone app and interface with other apps
by Jules42888 on 2014/02/01 05:43
The Todoist apps (I use iPhone and PC/windows app) keep getting better. I spent many hours doing research and testing out various productivity / to-do list systems and I think this one is the clear winner. For me cross-platform usage was key since I need to be able to enter stuff on the go on my iPhone but easier to modify stuff in detail on my PC. This does this fantastically and allows me to set a variety of parameters (priority, due date, project, adding files to tasks) easily. Two tips on this: --Give yourself a little bit of time to try it out before you make the final judgment -- it takes a bit of getting used to but is very fast once you've had a bit of time on it (this is the case for most of the to-do apps). --Upgrade to the premium version. For most of us, the impact of a good productivity app. is so much greater than the cost that it's worth trying it out with all the features.
Best task app ever, especially for ADHD
by twseal77 on 2014/08/31 16:01
I have ADD and I have been through a lot of apps and methods for trying to stay on task and remember stuff. This is by far the best app I have ever used... In fact so good that I normally don't write reviews, this is the first. It is very simple and quick to use, you van use it online on the web page on your PC with PC/mac app and on iPhone and iPad. I like the simplicity and ease of use. I like that I can add notes, attach files and keep categories for different things, like school, work, etc. So many apps and methods out there for ADD require a bunch of steps and processes and 'remember to remember' methods that don't work. If I could remember in the first place or keep my attention span long enough that might be ok, but I can't. This is the only app I have found that is simple and quick enough that I can pay attention and quickly add, update, and keep my life organized without being over complicated.
Works great, shareable, multi-platform, easy
by Kirk032167 on 2014/11/11 22:20
I have an iPad and an iPhone 6+. I'm not sure why everyone is complaining about this app. It works great. It syncs quickly. I can see it fine on my new phone. I find it easier to add items from my iPad, but that is because of the iPhone keyboard (which is certainly not the fault of this app). I can share my personal list with my spouse, and business todos with my business partner. We can assign tasks to one another. I add items from my iPad, then take my phone with me to the store if I am running errands. All synced and ready to complete. I also like the user rating. The more tasks you complete, the more experience your rating goes to (currently I'm a novice, but I am desperately seeking todos to increase my level :D). It does exactly what it advertises, which is help me keep track of and organize my todo lists. Great app. I would recommend it, and do.
Replaced so many other tools & Apps
by Dave Seville on 2014/11/20 04:44
After starting out as a trial customer for a short time I have been a premium customer for two years now. Your creativity is the only limitation as to what this program can do for you. This has replaced so many other apps and programs and paper methods that I was using I can't begin to list them all out. Just start using it right away on a simple basis then take some time in setting up how you want to use it and you'll be amazed what it can do. I have sections for business and personal and it's amazing how much more I get done and keep organized by using one premium app like this. I love that it is cross platformed and I can use it on my iPad, computer and iPhone and everything stays in sync. One of the best features I like is that I can have it email and or text me at certain times for tasks that I designate.
A flexible and feature-rich To Do app
by sloppyjack on 2013/09/06 00:44
I have recently come back to Todoist, after the recent updates. I love it. I left Remember the Milk. Why? There are a few things I need from a todo app: 1. Syncs with a good website 2. Simple 3. Flexible 4. Doesn't require a lot of thought to maintain Todoist ticks those requirements, with a pleasant to use experience. The website is great- it presents the most crucial information to you, adding tasks is a cinch, as is keeping as few or as many projects as you'd like. You can also add nifty colors to cue you. I have found that - even while applying GTD principles- I need to change my system occasionally to match my workload. Sometimes I have many folders to segregate tasks (and thinking) by project. Other times, I just want to keep my todos from getting forgotten. Todoist accommodates either. Easily. And, with a variety of views, the app and site allow you to keep the most important actionable info on front of you, when you need it. There is nothing over complicated here- no stars or next actions or whatnot. That means you can create you own system and it will work. And on the web you can drag and drop tasks and projects to reorder them (great) and set your own front page view (mind is P1 + next 7 days due). That could come to the app but I don't miss it.
Locks up after several updates
by To do list fanatic on 2014/07/28 09:45
I often need to reschedule tasks that I was unable to complete the previous day. As I go down the list reviewing each task and updating the due date the app will lock up. It is often making my changes but tasks don't visually move until I force the app the restart. It could be that this has been a long time issue but it is getting worse as we build up more list items. It has recently started to being unresponsive to any screen taps. It occasionally continues even after forcing the app to restart. If this continues we will need to look for a different solution. With that said it works great for keeping track of our family's very complex list of to do's. My husband, daughter, and I all use the app. One complaint with sharing projects is that it doesn't display them on the new shared user's screen the same. When it could be critical that the new invited user realize what project it is a part of.
No privacy, worthless offline
by GaryQual on 2014/04/28 02:15
As near as I can tell, all of your data is stored in the cloud on third-party serves, not even owned by the developer. The mere fact that the privacy policy is totally silent on the security of this data suggests that not only isn't it secure, so that both they and the unnamed third party can read your files, but the developer doesn't even appreciate the importance of maintaining the security of user data. Before any app can share data, it first has to create it on your own mobile device, so that you can use it. Simple, right? But if you install this app on an iPad without cellular, then get on the bus or subway to work, you're hosed. You can't even get started without logging in, and no network, no login. And what happens to your data if they go out of business? Backup to the close, and sharing with users are both great features. But for an app whose focus is personal data, if it doesn't first work reliably standalone, with no account creation required, it isn't worth trusting the developer with an e-mail address just to get started.
Great Desktop, Mobile is lacking
by neblotr on 2014/06/07 19:32
Kind of ridiculous as far as layout on the mobile app goes atm. It’s essentially a gigantic outline. No collapsing folders, nothing. As far as layout is concerned, Everyday app does a job orders better than this one, and they’re not even due to come out of beta till next week. I think the problem comes from the fact that they’re currently developing their application for 13 platforms. More or less stretched thin so to speak on development when you do that, or so it seems. Jack of all trades, master of none, as it were. Really needs some serious UI developments for the iOS platform. I’d venture to guess that a majority of the people that use this application do so from an iOS device and abhor the idea of being tethered to their laptop/desktop just because the mobile version is such an incredibly clunky P.O.S. It’s truly only good for a “mirror” of what you’ve entered elsewhere. This I say because: while you can enter tasks in this mobile version, it’s not at all fluid and certainly not enjoyable to enter subtasks for a large project of any real detail. I’m seriously hoping they fix these issues soon, because dollar for dollar, it’s actually cheaper to buy the full omnifocus suite (omnifocus 1 went for 3 years before “2”) than it is to pay for 3 years of todoist premium. They need to stop honing their app for business and start focusing on the individual, as I’m sure they make up the bulk of TD users.
Great Task Manager
by Richard Garcia on 2014/12/10 00:26
I have been searching for an app that can manage all of my tasks and projects, and this task manager gets the job done. It is the one app that can be integrated with other platforms very well such as gmail or sunrise calendar. It works great on my Mac and iPhone and all of my tasks are in my Todoist no matter what device I use. Ever wish to take an email that you would need to get back to (perhaps because of a lengthy research or response needed,) well in Gmail, there is a button that you can add to your browser which can save your emails as tasks. How about that???!!! It is truly a great task manager and would recommend it for anyone who has a lot of stuff on their plates and wants to quickly and easily jot down a to-do or reminder that they can circle back to when completed.
Love this todo app!
by ahaef on 2014/05/25 21:19
Full disclosure: I did end up subscribing to the premium service, but that's also probably the best endorsement I can give. Love the clean, simple interface for using the lists and checking things off, but still with tons of options when creating or editing a task. It can be as straightforward or complex as you want to make it. The daily email snapshot with reminders of how many things you did, how many you have to do that day, and how many points you have will either keep you hooked or annoy you; if it's the latter, they're easily turned off. Sync is super-fast (one of my complaints with other todo apps) and has never lost one of my tasks. No shared lists and no location-based due dates means this isn't my only todo app, but it's the one I use for all of my tasks!
Great For Collaborative Task Lists
by Edawg83 on 2014/07/12 02:59
I am a firm supporter as Todoist has really helped me get on track with list building. It will require an Internet connection to stay up to date, but it is meant for folks always on the go. At first, I maintained my own lists, and over time I have had to evolve and move them around. This has been very easy and quick to do, which I appreciate. I have expanded my list to incorporate my wife and colleagues at work. It has been a great resource to use collaboratively, and access to my list on my phone, desktop, or laptop have made it a huge plus. The additional features would be nice to haves, but the subscription process seems a bit steep unless more unique value is added. I think Todoist should survey their users to get a better idea of what they would pay for - just my two cents.
I've tried them all...
by Dougstump on 2014/12/12 03:57
For an early adopter of productivity apps, the one category in which I've struggled is to-do-list apps. They haven't satisfied my need for simplicity and depth, so I've remained a Franklin-Covey paper planner guy (ironic for someone who relies on his electronic devices to get everything else done). After a week of using this free version, I think I've found the right tool and plan on upgrading to the paid version to get more functionality. Right off the bat, I found the prioritization, categories and flexibility to create tasks and due dates (love how I can key in "every other day" in the browser version for repeat events) highly intuitive. And synchronization between devices is a snap--no waiting around like some other apps. I highly recommend.
Finally found it a great "To Do" organizer
by Rafamendes on 2015/01/03 13:43
I have been searching for an app to help me to organize my "to dos" for a long time. I used the tasks from outlook what was easy to link to emails, but very poor for all other things (project organization, search tools, etc). I liked todoist very much, it is easy to use, cloud and works perfectly on my laptop, iPhone and iPad, giving me efficiency to execute and organize my activities. I only didn't give 5 star because there is no link to outlook or Google mail yet, it would save lot of time if I could mark an email as "follow up" in todoist, also it is complicate to send files. That should create something that I could copy a file from email or or drive and paste in todoist. Other than these items, I like very much the app and are helping me a lot.
Just Right? Maybe so.
by pcborup on 2014/07/16 23:27
For a long time I have floated in between Omni Focus, Things, and a couple of other apps for task management. Each have their strengths but also sufficient weaknesses that I felt a bit like the three bears story (i.e. this one is too much...this one is too little...) Todoist may be that "just right" middle ground. It is taking some getting used to but one large plus is that it is very consistent experience across all platforms that I am trying. That includes all Apple platforms as well as Web and Windows. That in itself is a big positive as one of my complaints about other apps has been inconsistent experience. Also need to note that the sync between all devices is lightning fast! So while my rating is still a work in process my initial feedback is 4 out of 5.
Well implemented task manager
by Brianthreedee on 2015/01/25 14:44
Being new to the use of task management, I have tried several different apps. My requirements are based on my work force needs, multi platform support, ease of work flow integration, which also means ease of use, and collaboration tools. I've found that most of my needs have been met, but I'm not won over by the outlook integration. My complaint stems from two issues, I am unable to have the calendar sit either below, or atop the plug in, but only to the side. This takes up precious real estate. The second, is that I have to run the plugin, instead of using outlooks task feature. Admittedly my issues might be my own limited understanding and if so I'll gladly change my rating to five stars, but till proven otherwise I'll leave it at four stars.
Mostly Excellent
by Type1Runner on 2014/10/01 18:30
I really like this app a lot! It provides lots of ways to organize a group tasks. Prioritization is a possibility. Setting due dates is great. Just takes a little bit of time to figure out how to set your dates, especially recurring ones. My one really big complaint is that I paid for the premium version so that I could get push reminders on my phone, and that part of the app is not working. I'm frustrated about that part. If that gets changed and fixed I can change this review. But for now, I'm changing the app I use for task management. I need to push notifications, or I will miss important tasks. I will mention that I contacted the developers for technical support, and they are aware of and are working on the issue. As of today, it still wasn't fixed. So they issued me a refund. I really appreciate that.
Excellent cross platform app
by Dana Piwinski on 2014/12/24 15:17
I've been using for about a year and half. A very solid todo list manager that works equally well on my windows PC Chrome or IE browser, and on my iOS 8 devices. I have many small projects to manage concurrently, with some larger ones going at the same time. This app helps me organize all my projects with project folders and subtasks. It's easy to go through and prioritize tasks daily. I also use the Inbox to just quickly throw in a task that I later file under the appropriate project, and my iPhone lets me do that by just speaking and having that converted into the text for the task. Nice. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the calendar integration, which is being improved. I would like to be able to assign a date range to a task (and subtasks), and have that show up graphically on a calendar. If it could do that, I wouldn't need other tools to do a project work breakdown structure. I paid for the premium version, both for the additional features, but especially to encourage this company to keep working on what I believe is a solid product with even more potential. If you like it, you might do the same.
A sufferer of ADD lands the perfect app...⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
by Lakahata on 2014/12/08 08:20
...at least that's what the title of my review should be! I've searched high and low for a To-Do app that works with how I work. I've bought, what feels like, every single app you can imagine to help organize my life. From the free ones to the paid ones, all of them grabbed my attention for a few days but we're either too simple, too difficult or just didn't have the necessary components for my lifestyle. Todoist gives me the cross-browser, web-based, app platform I need to keep me from losing my job. 😉😉 That's why I went ahead and upgraded to premium which was never my intent when I bought the app. Thank you Todoist for an incredible tool as well as a great blog!
Very good tool. Works great.
by Paper solutions on 2013/08/10 18:45
I moved to this app from wonderlist which was really bad. So far I am very impressed. Love the time date stamp that is automatically input when you save the note. Wish it would open the attached emails on the phone app. That only works on the computer with outlook. Everything has been very good on this. Also on my iPad now. Really great. The latest update also corrected several thing. Mostly the way you view notes and the calendar option is so much better to move your to dos to the dates you want. Great app only getting better. One more item needed is to highlight the importance level color a little more. You can hardly see it. Thanks.
Simplicity conquers the world
by justDelmar on 2014/12/27 14:23
Todoist is a simple and easy to use task management app that really helps me conquer the world around me. I've tried just about all of the popular task management apps out there and I've stuck with this app the longest. It's intuitive, simple and functional without being overbearing. The app is flexible enough to let you manage your task the way you want and not by a particular process. However, it does support GTD for those that follow that methodology. I also love the integration with other apps and services especially the CloudMagic email app. Right now this is my goto task management app until another comes along to unseat the king. Now go out and be productive!
Finally found a system that works for me
by Furblong on 2013/08/12 15:46
Love this app, I made a project for my appointments so it replaces my calendar too. I now have all my info in one simple, searchable place. I like the addition of the Inbox for quick notes, then I go back after the meeting and assign times, projects and priorities. I don't know if it is new, but I also like seeing all my completed work under the Karma tab. I use this online with Chrome for Mac and PC and on an iPhone. I haven't had any of the sync problems other reviewers are writing about. Sometimes something seems missing but I search completed tasks and it is there, I had unintentionally checked the project.
Best todo service!
by Rjzmml on 2014/02/09 16:27
After trying many task lists, Todoist is my favorite by far. It is both minimalist so that you don't get to mired in organizing tasks, and flexible so that you can group tasks within other tasks, and now projects within projects if you choose. New features have been appearing, though I hope it also becomes possible to turn more of them off. "Karma" was introduced about a year ago, but I found it incredibly distracting until we were allowed to optionally turn it off a few months later. I hope the same happens with things like screen real estate being dedicated to congratulating me on having nothing due today!
Terrific little system
by Arthurbb on 2014/10/12 14:10
Works quite well for me; coordinating many little projects with 3-5 people and 5-10 tasks within each. What I like: - sharing with others in a project basis - ability to include documents and notes in a comment section under tasks. - syncing across every computing platform allows me to include anyone--no matter what platform they have. - ease at moving tasks from one project to another - interface to move deadlines from one date to another. -easy learning curve and UI layout of features works pretty logically and intuitively. Others willing to use it per my request. -very good syncing across platforms and subscription to ICal works well (task deleted takes item off calendar-okay for me) Dislike: Syntax for setting up repetitive and recurring tasks is way too complex, cryptic and unclear. Need better manual for this or improved implementation. Too many entry errors when using this UI for iOS8 is too different from OSX Mac version so that there is a learning curve (not too steep) for each and increases entry errors.
Poor UI design
by Value_Arb on 2014/10/29 17:08
Not as bad as Mac App, which is horrible/confusing & borderline unusable, the ioS version focuses on pretty over usable. Always multiple steps for adding anything, always confusing about how to do things or whether they are active or not. When you create a task you can't add notes unless you save it, return to your list, find it, and then open it in notes editing "mode". super confusing whether you've created recurring tasks or not. Accidently drag left? you just competed a task, watch carefully for tiny notification where you aren't looking, bottom of screen, to give you fleeting chance to undo. Developers don't understand how iOS apps should work, when to use gestures and how to use them, when to ask for confirmation, when to make it a 2 step process so important changes are clear to user before they allow them to commit, etc
Extremely Helpful & Great for Collaboration
by cr8907 on 2014/10/04 20:00
I'm the type of person who needs to be organized or my life gets hectic and I get anxious. This app helps me stay on track at work and at home. My boyfriend and I collaborate on our Errands project list and I love the "assigning tasks" feature so we can remind each other to do things and let each other know when we do something. It's really great for prioritizing tasks at work. The morning updates for what is on my to-do list for the day is great to keep me going. And I love that it syncs with google cal and that I can use the website or chrome app while at work. Download now! Free features are worth it!
Repeated reminders?
by Albert Song on 2014/10/22 15:35
I am a new user to this app. Am getting accustomed to it and like the simple look and limitless tags and projects you can add. The option of receiving multiple reminders for a task is also quite helpful as I often do not get to it the first time around. Sometimes I have tasks that need to get done each day, week, or month. It would be nice to be also have repeated reminders available as well. Also some of the options seem a bit too complicated, like the priority levels and sub-projects, etc. But perhaps that is just my own preference to keep things simpler. Overall, I am pleased with the app and find it worth the investment for my daily organizing needs.
Pros & cons
by hasnain22 on 2014/06/14 12:57
Pros: it's a great to-do & task app. Simple, pretty intuitive and boldly minimal. it does what it says it does. Cons: please understand that this is NOT an app to manage your projects - unless you have very few or simple ones. It's too limited for that. For example, it doesn't have categories (work, personal, home, side business...) to group several projects based on context. It also doesn't allow you to focus on tasks that are due today, by the project. Instead, you see all tasks that are due today (personal mixed with work mixed with home mixed with side business). This is frustrating, and at times infuriating, when you have a lot of things to work on across several projects for work. That's just a couple examples that this is not a project mgt app. I bought this app instead of Omnifocus because of Omnifocus' larger price. Now I regret it. And bear in mind, you have to keep paying yearly for Todoist to use simple features like sync. So to sum it up, this is a great task app for simple groups of lists, not an app to stay on top of several projects across the different parts of your life.
Clean and functional
by StoryDelver on 2013/06/22 18:33
The interface is pure Apple in its simplicity. Complexity is there, but hidden. Superb. Too many task manager tools try to do too much and clutter thief interface into I usability. Todoist has avoided this trap so far. Please create on iPad! The iPhone version simply does not utilize the screen real estate if the iPad optimally. In terms of functionality, the main weakness is task entry workflow. I suggest taking a page from brainstorming apps. In Todoist entering a new task takes two touches each. I come from the world of mind-map apps where it only takes a single touch to enter a new item. Hitting done sets you up to enter the next one. Only the first item takes two touches. When entering task/listitems your brain is much faster than your fingers. Remembering all the things you need to do or get is essentially a brainstorming exercise. Things come fast. Two touches per item becomes a pain right away. I did a test and found that creating a list of things todo in Mindmapper is three times as fast. That said, I use Todoist for its other features that mind-maps don't have.
Oh what todo, what todo
by NateHolder on 2014/09/12 11:47
I have downloaded at least 10 "to-do" list apps and nothing comes close to Todoist. I needed somewhere between a project manager and a To-do list, but I didn't need something that was made for three people to manage and have a team of engineers to set up. With its ability to be on anything I am on, even gmail, it gives me a way to get stuff done. Along with its ability to group things into projects the different spheres of my life are handled. Plus it encourages you daily, if you set it up, by giving you points so you even feel more productive when you are being productive. Love Todoist thanks developers! -Nate
Locking up as I reschedule!
by coolcatteacher on 2014/09/05 09:53
I agree totally with the review posted by list fanatic. I love this app because it integrates with Toggl and Gmail beautifully and is awesome on my PC-- but the iPhone app is buggy! I look at the list to reschedule and review and after three or so moves to another day--- bam-- I am locked up and have to restart. Sometimes it even loses what I have done. The iPhone app needs help ASAP- this is a huge problem! I have looked and looked and finally found the tool that meets every need but I also need the iPhone app to work. Please have your developers fix this! Today all of the words of my lists disappeared. About to restart and will likely be back but really- doesn't this show up in your own testing. I have screenshots - please fix!
Best To Do List On The Market

I have tried for years to find a program that would sync with my Mac and my iPhone that was easy to use and time efficient. Many other apps I tried using required too much time,too much data entry, and I was spending more time updating the data entry than I was actually doing what was on the list. This app is fast, easy to do, and it updates in real time via the cloud. It also can be synced so that your to do list is visible in the Mac calendar. I absolutely love this app. I highly recommend it. It's because of this app that I have finally committed to using a digital calendar.
Ubiquitous Task Management that's easy to use
by Galahadz on 2014/07/21 13:03
I had been searching for a task app prior to starting a new job in a new industry and my research led me to Todoist. I began using it and quickly jumped to the paid version, having a need for email and calendar integration. What I like about it the most is the ease of capture...there is very little fuss involved in adding a task. I never fully got GTD until I had used this for a few weeks. I was capturing everything that needed my attention and forgetting about it until I was notified. My stress level plunged and my productivity rose. Did I mention it's everywhere? iPhone, iPad, browser, and PC and Mac. Get it.
Best
by drbenmd on 2014/04/11 15:48
I will just reiterate everyone else on here. While Im not a fan of the subscription price tag for a to do app, it synchronizes so well with Apple products and the tech world we live in. The sms text reminders was key for me, as I text people all the time so I always get my texts whereas I dont always see the push notifications. Also it has the easiest and quickest method for adding tasks. Adding tasks on my mac is just a breeze. Lastly I like being able to add tasks to diff projects easily, but still see them on a seven day schedule. This is a feature the Apple Reminders app glaringly lacks. Overall worth the price for me.
Great app
by eazyrooster on 2014/10/24 07:27
Fantastic to do/productivity app. It's very flexible for simple or even complicated GTD systems. It isn't the best. But it is close to Things or Omnifocus and adds the ability to be used on any platform. Mac, Windows, iOS, Linux, Chrome... Anything goes. That moves it to the top. The latest "bug fix" update is still pretty buggy. Lots of crashes. Widget doesn't really work like other widgets. You can't check things off from it like you can with other todo/task widgets. It freezes up often if you try to open the app from the widget. Swiping in the app has gotten very stiff. It's not a fluid motion anymore. Basically, they don't seem to be able to get it right for iOS 8.
A great app with room for improvement
by Johnolphnt on 2014/12/13 15:02
Todoist is perhaps the best task management app I have tried. It really excels in its flexibility across platforms because it's available for everything. Its web-app is great. I love that I can add tasks from my Windows laptop, iPhone, and iPad. I'm a premium use, so I think that makes syncing better It also handles repeating tasks well. It needs more options for end dates to repeating tasks. I haven't seen details for doing that in its documentation. It's biggest weakness is its poor implementation of sub tasks. They appear twice in your list of tasks. It's now clear which task they are appended to sometimes. I much prefer Wunderlist's system for sub tasks.
This is it! The BEST, SIMPLE yet VERSATILE
by Kinj84 on 2014/12/05 06:15
I spent money on several apps and softwares including omnifocus...and after spending so much time trying out the rest---this is THE best out there! I use it on my iPhone, MAC and my work Windows PC. It's super simple to use yet powerful... from reminders of your appointments to karma to keep you motivated! Paying for premium is super worth it. I manage my home/car's todos, family commitment, work todos and self health goals with it! Get things done, collaborate and reach your goals --- super productive! And on a side note, I am obsessed with getting things done and being organized- so if I love this app, so will you!
Love the Todoist app!
by jul22 on 2013/02/02 22:49
This app is awesome — easy to use and elegant! Todoist is my favorite task management system on the computer. Glad I upgraded to Premium a while back. My one hope is that they'll integrate sound alerts for push notifications soon — fortunately, the support staff are very responsive and told me they're currently working on it. Mobile push notifications work, but in the meantime I've decided to use email or SMS alerts and I have my iPhone set to do push notifications and sound alerts for those. That's working great for me so far. Wonderful that Todoist is so flexible in terms of reminders. Thanks Todoist team!
Simple and powerful
by Richard Radcliffe on 2013/12/19 18:38
I've used many apps for this purpose and todoist beats them all by a long shot. It is very sinple to use, it works across basically all platforms (very important for me), the ability to email new projects/tasks from anywhere is simple, the ability to add an email as a task to deal with later is simple and very useful, and, finally, $29/year is trivial. C'mon, that comes out to about $2.50/month. Trivial. My only complaint at this point is that I can't get the app to work on an older XP machine. No matter though. The website version is fully functional and looks and behaves just like the app.
Just what I wanted
by Missing deposits on 2014/01/17 01:33
I wanted a simple to do list that I could check off items on as I completed them. I didn't need it to sync with anything (though this will sync with the iPad's calendar.) I wanted it to do more than a single list (by days) and I wanted it to be easy to use, without requiring me to register somewhere. And I wanted it not to crash like Reminders does when I try to use it. Todoit fits all those things. My only complaint is that adding an item is not quite as simple as starting to type- you have to click on a + first. Other than that, it's very intuitive and easy.
Excellent To-do App
by Pelean on 2014/04/11 17:29
This is the app I've been waiting for to easily organize my tasks without being overly complicated. The Gmail integration is perfect to make emails into tasks I can see on the go. The iOS app admittedly has less functions without the Premium account, but is still useful. I rarely upgrade to Premium/ Paid subscriptions, but I purchased one for Todoist. It was totally worth the cost for the extra functions. Update: I love the added functions to the mobile app. It makes creating, finding, and making reminders of tasks much easier. Definitely an app I rely on every day.
It remembers so I don't have to!
by taotte-wi on 2014/12/01 17:20
There are so many things I need to remember to do for my small business, and I needed one place to enter things as soon as I think of them. I wanted something I could access from my iPhone, my iPad, and my laptop. Todoist fits the bill perfectly! If I think of something I need to do while I'm trying to sleep, I reach for my phone. During the day, I have a browser tab up on my laptop and check things off as I do them. There is so much functionality in the free version, but I may pay the fee anyway to support them and to get reminders. Love it!

by sbroback on 2015/02/21 06:17
It’s awesome in a way that the tallest building in Iowa is. Yes, it’s feature checklist is quite solid. Was excited to see what was touted as an outlining-centric task app, and paid an astounding $28 for a year of usage. It’s outlining is inadequate, and while issues are easy to fix, people have been waiting years for a few simple enhancements. If you’ve used real outliners before, todoist is like running in water. 1) Outlines don’t collapse on ios. 2) Click a heading and tasks lower in hierarchy don’t appear on ios. 3) Outlining not interactive compared to other drag and drop outliners. 4) Completed tasks just vanish, aren’t greyed out (scores of requests by users for this to be fixed are ignored.) I’m only 2 days in, and my jaw keeps dropping from the glaring omissions. $28??
LOVE this task management app!!!
by Aerynsun2221 on 2014/07/19 12:28
I was using Omnifocus, but their sync was awful. After a few times of losing my tasks and having to re-enter them, I ditched it and found Todoist. Let me just say that it 's the most beautiful and easiest task management app our there. I can easily updated, enter or delete my tasks from any device with no problem. I also love that it's not bloated with too many bells and whistles. Many other apps are either too bare bones or have way too many features that I'll never use. If you're looking to easily manage your tasks, then this is the app to use!
This is one of the 3 best apps I have ever used.
by amny1976 on 2015/02/14 01:43
This app is amazing. It truly puts the "smart" in smart phone. I am a premium user -- and to have this app on a every device I use is worth the price. I am more productive than I have ever been and don't forget anything. Once I put it in todoist I don't worry about ever forgetting it. I use the app for months long projects to the most mundane tasks. The text reminders on the premium version are a life saver. This is an app I use every single day. I have downloaded hundreds of apps, but have never been so satisfied with an app to actually write a review.
Works Flawlessly
by Zeuserkitty on 2013/07/21 13:24
I held off writing a review because I wanted to use the iphone app for 3-4 months before rendering an opinion. This is one of the most dependable apps I have ever used; it loads immediately upon tapping the icon and the list displays clearly and in a logical manner. The phone app version of various computer-based programs often have either poor functionality or are not easy to figure out, so this has been a nice surprise. It's very easy to edit your to-do list from this app and because of that, I find myself using it even more than I thought I would.

Great
by Mattnsnss on 2015/02/27 19:20
Solid app, the really awesome stuff must be paid for. Can't blame them though, free functionality is plenty for me.
Excellent! Nice, clean simple UI.
by Rohn Patel on 2015/02/27 18:12
Using on my iPhone and Mac to keep my to do list handy.
ToDo made me well done
by shahidullah on 2015/02/27 14:23
It is a fantastic manager for my daily activities.
Great but Outlook extension needs help!
by AllyKo31 on 2015/02/27 12:21
Love that I have a panel in my inbox which shows me my to do list or the day. But I run into syncing and other issues they don't make it flow as smooth. But other than that this app rocks!!
Great App with potential
by Jonathan Robbs on 2015/02/26 11:15
This is a great app. It has the potential to be my go to app for productivity. There is a short learning curve but so far I am very pleased.
Overall great app
by K1mb3r on 2015/02/26 07:00
Great app for organizing what needs to get done. Pros: - elegant app for both ios OS X and windows with seamless syncing - Notes feature works great. Cons: - need to get the premium version to really benefit from the app
Great app, desktop product is better
by Mao ke lan on 2015/02/25 17:18
The app is a great companion if you use the desktop app as your primary to do list. Not sure I would use it as a stand alone app. But the desktop product is definitely worth the money!
Simple and Complicated
by odellcs on 2015/02/23 13:27
I really like how todoist is simple when you get started and you can make it as advanced as you want. I've even done some ifttt things.
Best task list!
by Snaptoist on 2015/02/23 01:43
I've looked at many task list/productivity apps and todoist is by far the best that I have found! I've been using it for about 3 years now and it is a lifesaver. I highly recommend it.
Great program
by Fat little lori on 2015/02/23 00:07
I am trying to utilize this program to keep organized and so far so good. I enjoy having the list everywhere and thats a huge plus over outlook.
Todoist
by Ride the Rockies on 2015/02/22 19:53
I've been a long time fan of GTD and now to see it integrated in an app is awesome! I love how it works across various platforms. No more need to use different apps, it all can be done on Todoist. The syncing across platforms is awesome and integration with IFTTT is great! Haven't forgotten my brellie once!
Best task app out there
by StayLuckyRen on 2015/02/22 17:49
And I've tried them all. Just clicks for me. And I really like that it syncs across so many platforms, being able to have the app open on my PC at work makes a real difference.
Almost perfect
by MiRa : ) on 2015/02/22 07:06
For the past 3 years I used Things as my mobile task manager. I loved the elegant GUI and instant synch with the Mac version. But I use a PC at work and was always looking for a better multi-platform task app with similar elegance and easy of use. I found Todoist and love it. I've used it all week and was impressed with the instant synch across iPhone, Mac and PC. I also found that it integrates well with Outlook, even allowing live emails to be turned into tasks in Todoist. Great!! And I really love the ability to easily indent sub tasks by dragging. This really helps organize work logically for multi-step processes. I'm frustrated by the lack of two key features missing in Todoist but present in most other task apps like Things: bulk selection and drag-and-drop for labels, date changes and other task features. This really slows things down when you are a power user. Hope they'll add these capabilities soon. Otherwise...almost perfect!
Handy

Functionality, UI, integration
by Bankerboyg on 2015/02/21 06:12
Excellent App for productivity
Clean and Responsive
by ameroche on 2015/02/21 01:46
Up-to-date and smooth. Has the latest "material design" feel.The syncing works great. Works seamlessly across all devices. The only thing missing from it being five stars is you cannot duplicate individual tasks and there is no control over font selection, although the export and import of templates is a very nice feature.
Well designed and intuitive
by Brad Eaton on 2015/02/20 17:50
I'm a serial productivity tool user. Todoist comes as close to what I would have designed myself. The interface is clean and uncluttered.
Outstanding
by Nininperez on 2015/02/20 02:58
Best friendly user, simple, with enough tools to get your agenda organize and get your friend and family involve...I strongly recommend it to anyone looking to organize that honey to do book we all have.
Easy & powerful
by ErDeHe on 2015/02/19 04:42
I use this app for personal and business purposes. What I enjoy most about it is that you can add multiple users very easily and adjust alerts to keep track of other users additions/completions.
Great To Do app
by Rudy’s Air 11 on 2015/02/18 23:50
This is an excellent app. To Do's everywhere! Lots of options. Very helpful to manage complex, multi-project and personal life tasks.
Best To Do List Around
by ALBCOLE on 2015/02/18 05:09
Hands-down the best task management tool on the market. I couldn't operate without it.
Glitches
by RDL DMD MS on 2015/02/17 19:32
Install this app to replace old to do list. Free app does not allow you to prioritize well,easily repeat actions on a regular basis, give alerts etc. without buying premium at 4:29 dollars per year. Also app takes a action that is placed on one day and moves it to another day without prompting. Tasks are sometimes covered up on screen by banner for next day Really don't like this app.
Love. It.
by 512techgirl on 2015/02/17 14:18
Too busy getting stuff done to write any more.
Terrific!
by happy mamma on 2015/02/17 11:13
Only to do list I've liked enough to stick with. Love, love, love the ability to integrate with email. Full version is the way to go.
good
by googleeeeeeeq on 2015/02/17 08:31

Great to-do app!
by exaltedsky on 2015/02/17 01:51
Helps me manage my tasks. Multi platform support is great; a clean & simple UI means it's my go-to!
Amazing
by Stark766 on 2015/02/17 01:22
Only a few days into it, but it's increased my productivity several times over. I was on an excel based to do list. This provided me the flexibility I've been wanting
Constantly crash

Fix it please
Handy and easy
by Dirty Water Dog on 2015/02/16 20:11
"Elegance" in math means reduced to simplest form. Todist is elegant.
An essential tool in the toolbox
by LowLow68 on 2015/02/16 00:18
I love this program. Can't function without it. Integrates flawlessly with Sunrise and syncs across all my devices. Big ups to the designers.
Great GTD app, lacks task assignment to multiple people
by Zech1979 on 2015/02/15 19:16
- Great app overall, stable on iOS 8.1 - one star less for not supporting task assignment to a group of users
This app isn't really free.
by TH3SPUS on 2015/02/15 05:03
The app is totally useless if you don't drop $28.99 per year on it. Having to pay a ridiculous subscription fee for key features, like reminders, repeating tasks, and notes, ruin this app. There are better to-do list apps that are actually free. Look elsewhere.
Four levels of subtasks
by ActOrBe on 2015/02/14 23:51
I really appreciate the ability to create subprojects and subtasks. I can keep track of a lot of obligations, keep them organized, and get to them when I can. The sharing features are also good. I can see my wife's shared projects, and she can see mine.
Love it!
by Antoniadivya on 2015/02/14 16:07
And love that it integrates with the #1 Slack and my other favorite life-changer Evernote
Great!
by bfrostieone on 2015/02/14 14:57
Great!
Well designed app
by semkirk on 2015/02/14 14:26
New user, only been on the tool for a month but liked it enough to upgrade to the premium tier. Allows me to organize action items by my clients and their projects. Great for quickly marking down things I need to do *as I think of them* which I've learned is very critical for me! If I don't write it down, it didn't happen and if it's an action item - it won't!! At $29/year - a worthwhile investment, especially with the Outlook option. Now just need Todoist to add the ability to "send to Todoist" in an open Outlook message, like you can "send to OneNote." That would make it five stars.
This is one of the 3 best apps I have ever used.
by amny1976 on 2015/02/14 01:43
This app is amazing. It truly puts the "smart" in smart phone. I am a premium user -- and to have this app on a every device I use is worth the price. I am more productive than I have ever been and don't forget anything. Once I put it in todoist I don't worry about ever forgetting it.

Helps me focus
by Fee nix on 2015/02/14 00:49
I push to complete tasks that I would normally procrastinate on... Simply because this app puts them in a simple but hard to ignore format
Tried others - this one was the winner!
by Kelli Pdx on 2015/02/13 18:31
I tried a few different project management and to-do list apps and systems. But Todoist by far outweighs the others. I love its simplicity, the ability to set multiple reminders and how everything syncs so well between my computer, phone, and with others that I've shared projects or tasks with. Love this app! It helps me be more efficient and productive and not miss deadlines. It's great for both my work and my personal errands.
Well thought out design!
by MattyBrooks on 2015/02/13 17:06
Efficient, streamlined and through app.
Love this app! Please fix the notifications!
by mb20matchstick on 2015/02/13 09:44
I love this app. It's everything I've been looking for in a todo app. However, I cannot get the mobile notifications to work for recurring tasks. I get them on my desktop and in gmail, but not on my phone. Also, when I mark one as done that is a daily task for instance I get a message that says the next task is due 2 days later and not the next day. I indeed get the task in my list the next day but the popup is always wrong when it is marked done for the day. Thanks.
Switcher from OF
by spr0ut on 2015/02/12 20:35
I am a recent Todoist convert and I have to say that it is really meshing well with my life and workflow. My previous solution was very good, but at the end of the day it just had far too much going on to make me as productive as possible. The sync is instant and accurate. This service has the right amount of features to make it very useful but not overwhelming. Light users should start with the free account to see how it works for them, but heavier users will find the pro account to be what they really want.
Perfect
by AlexV66 on 2015/02/12 17:23
Perfect
Couldn't do without this app!
by Newnormalsurvivor on 2015/02/12 16:32
I have many projects going on at the same time and this is perfect for keeping all my lists on all my devices so I can always be up to date.
Nice for sharing task assignments
by GrailHunter01 on 2015/02/12 15:18
I like that I can use it on all devices and can create to do items for my son. Then when he completes them I get a notification . Sure beats nagging!
Great app!
by Anonymous academic on 2015/02/11 21:01
I have been testing electronic To Do list managers on and off for ten years. This is the first one I have stuck with for more than 2 weeks. It is easy to learn, simple to use, has enough features to keep me organized and it is visually attractive. Cross-platform synchronization is excellent and the ability to make hard-copy printouts when needed moved this from theoretically desirable to practically useful.
Awesome...and overpriced
by ubermalt on 2015/02/11 18:14
First of all, this is a great app. Best I've ever used for lists, great interface, syncs across devices the works. Sadly, most of the useful functions are in the paid version. I don't have the expectation that apps should be free and have gladly paid up to $10 for a great app but $28 is insane. Was looking forward to using this with Apple Watch but the developers need to put one foot back into reality.
Excellent App & Service
by iAutonomous on 2015/02/11 17:49
I really liked the APP, it's mobility between platforms, and it's versatility. I think the service is worth the payment for the additional features. Give it a try, it's free up front for the basics which really establishes good practice in breaking down highly complex activities to smaller achievable tasks. Good for GTD, and other methods in getting tasks done.
Great
by Wicnx zoaland on 2015/02/11 17:01
Great to do app
Excellent GTD tool
by Ianor on 2015/02/11 13:45
This app and service is awesome, and helps me a TON. I give the whole product, across platforms, five out of five. There are a couple of additional features I would like to see. Hope to see more Siri integration in the future. Would be nice to be able to have a little more date flexibility. But as the dev continues to roll out improvements, I doubt it will be too long before we see those things. Great product.
Get it done app.
by Nikon D5300(HOU) on 2015/02/11 13:41
This app helps you get it done. With the email its a double reminder. Get app a most have for time starved super busy "Don't forget" dads.
Using it daily!
by Sagi Sirius on 2015/02/11 09:15
Great for productivity!
Nearly perfect!
by Dan Goldman on 2015/02/10 23:45
I would give it 5 stars but the Mac version lacks good integration with Mail.app. If it weren't for that small omission I would gladly switch from OmniFocus!
Gets better and better
by CA in PA on 2015/02/10 21:38
I've used Todoist since it first appeared years ago and it has been improved often since then. I've recommended it to more people than I can count. For me the Premium features are worth the small price. AND the ability to print nice-looking customized reports puts it totally in a class by itself. Highly recommended!
Yes
by Fratlite on 2015/02/10 12:07
This is not a professional review, but I love this app. The flow and user interface is smooth. It's handy. There are some premium options that I wish were free -- in a perfect world maybe. Right now, nothing I would really change but I've only had this app for two weeks or so. We'll see how it goes! Definitely recommend though: it has me on my organizational game!
Love it

One thing missing
by Rose142 on 2015/02/09 02:04
One thing missing that makes this app useless for me...the ability to set reoccurring task. Like in the app Errands to do list by Yoctoville.
Great app
by James Nanscawen on 2015/02/09 00:09
It's one of the most used apps that I own. Best GTD app...hands down!
Just what I have been looking for!
by Fbcacct on 2015/02/08 22:22
Great app! The interface with Outlook is just what I have been looking for to handle email requests and follow up. Would highly recommend to anyone who has many departments and groups to support as well as managing personal to do's.
Great to prioritize

Simple and effective
by Swoopjockey on 2015/02/08 14:29
Very useful. Simple. Good integration with gmail. Need to be able to assign multiple people to the same task.
A task manager that gets it
by Hapaning on 2015/02/08 13:22
I've never stuck with any single task management system or used one steadily because they didn't have sufficient cross-platform support and mail integration in the way that I needed it. Todoist anticipates everything I could possibly want and then delivers. The subscription is well worth the ability to leave comprehensive notes and other features. It's become an integral part of how I work now and I can't imagine life without it.
Simple and Effective
by PersonWithADD on 2015/02/08 01:27
This is my tool for managing work and personal to do lists. The sharing feature is highly effective for time-sensitive group action items due to its near-real-time updates and the ability to assign tasks. If only we can upload photos or attachments to to-do items....
Ok, but I dont want to pay for features that are free on Wunderlist
by Zeos786 on 2015/02/07 22:47
Ok app, but you must subscribe to get features that are just as good, if not better, with other apps like Wunderlist. No thanks.
Decent App
by Mappeal on 2015/02/07 18:06
Nice features. I wish it had location-based reminders but everything else is pretty good. I wish it was integrated with iCal but I think the paid version might be. Nice that I can view/update my lists on all my devices.
Great
by Meg678 on 2015/02/07 17:07
I've tried several task management apps, and this is by far the best!
Bitter
by Kentsatwat on 2015/02/07 14:35
I like this app, it is great and performs wonderfully. Prompting a user away from an productivity application to review an application is counter to what I am attempting to achieve. Asking for reviews is never okay!
Best to do list
by Ktlovesbooks on 2015/02/07 01:16
I love this app, great features. Best to do list app I've tried. I only wish I could see my finished tasks without having to subscribe to the premium version.
Good App
by Misplaced Rebel on 2015/02/06 23:46
The main positive is that your tasks are accessible from virtually any device. The printing and viewing of archived tasks could be better but is acceptable. I do not like any subscription type of app and this one is limited unless you buy a premium account. Subprojects are nice as well. I like the look and feel of Things by Cultured Code better but it is a Mac only platform.
Great app
by TS Engstrom on 2015/02/06 12:09
Notice an immediate difference in productivity, organization, and a desire to get more done. Makes it easy to manage all your to do lists in one place. A beautiful, minimalist app that only makes you want to use it more and naturally, use it more effectively. Get it.
Simple Entry and easy to attach docs
by Jadian49 on 2015/02/06 09:19
I am a fan of the app. Easy entry and note feature includes attaching documents (premium feature).
Great App
by lindseyleitner on 2015/02/06 02:16
I love that it is easy to use and has a nice clean design. I have tried so many different ones and this one finally stuck!
Best for keeping on top of things
by Peter Bowden on 2015/02/05 23:02
I'm always looking for that one app to help me keep organized and track various projects. This one does it by far better than most. The learning curve is simple. The interface clean and efficient. Works well on all my devices - desktop, iPad, iPhone.
Fantastic App
by Jashugan.Red on 2015/02/05 16:49
This is by far the most comprehensive to do app that I have ever used. I especially like the collaboration features, which allows me to share tasks and lists with my wife.
Great and does what I need
by הרברט on 2015/02/05 14:26
Great app, not crazy about the "karma" bit but it does not affect the functionality.
Good choice
by Jmp1112 on 2015/02/04 20:53
Easy to use. Syncs well. I have settled on this after a lot of trials. Recommended.
Useless until it syncs with iOS reminders
by 12345thetim on 2015/02/04 19:38
This app is ancient history until it can leverage Siri better.
Carryover
by CIFI-asml on 2015/02/04 15:12
This app is great - and for the most part it works for me. The only thing that appears to be lacking is a way of completed tasks to automatically move from "today" to tomorrow -- which in turn becomes the new "today." Maybe this is available in the pay for app - but it's too expensive to just "try it and see."
Great
by Heyslick on 2015/02/04 14:13
I really like todoist, I used to use a paper planner, kept all of my tasks and notes. I have since started using Evernote for all of my daily note taking and todoist for all of my daily tasks. The thing I like about todoist is that my tasks don't get forgotten. They stay on my to do list until I either do them. This is an awesome app.
I have tried many and this is the best for me
by samdylan on 2015/02/04 01:07
I have tried many to do apps and this one has the simple features I need in a nice clean interface.

Awesome now that I finally tried it!

Resisted this app but just dove in and boy is this a functional app. Cross platform wonder. Love the natural language dates especially for recurring tasks. Genius! Well integrated (with room to grow.) Nice looking UI. Worth the premium subscription. This app has come a long way.
Definitely recommend
by F. McReiley on 2015/02/02 04:56
My life has recently become crazy with 3 jobs and lots of schedule and task juggling. I couldn't have managed this transition without Todoist. I've never felt like an organized person until now.
Great business and life tool
by TreyCIII on 2015/02/01 20:23
I love this app. I have it on my iPhone and my Mac. It helps be stay organized and productive in my business and in my personal life. I highly recommend it.
Trouble signing up
by Background app refresh on 2015/02/01 18:18
I would love to try the app.but unfortunately every time I try to sign up with my google account,the app starts having problems and I am forced to restart my iPad
Easy to use, multi platform support
by Jaghond on 2015/02/01 15:43
First todo app that I actually found useful. The most compelling feature is the Multi platform support, I use apps on iOS and windows 7 app. The notification widget on iOS 8 is really cool!
My Favorite Productivity app
by Robert Cooney on 2015/02/01 15:42
I've been using different productivity apps since the iPad came out. This is by far my favorite. I find with all of the different hats that I wear, I need him to be able to identify projects and put the tasks within them, a la GTD. The ability to create recurring tasks, prioritize tasks, and be able to view my week very easily makes this app breeze to use and very effective for my workflow. While it is not nearly as robust as Omnifocus, you'll be up a running with far less frustration.
Best to do app for advanced users
by WLovis on 2015/02/01 13:38
I have used them all and like this the best. The UI could use some upgrades to simplify entry to make more efficient. Adding a "week from now" button would be a big help. The next week button drops everything on Monday.
Robust options, easy interface, synching not great
by Jesse Lee in Boulder on 2014/07/12 16:48
I've been using this app for a little over two weeks. Prior to that, I used Daylite for almost 5 years to manage my tasks, contacts, projects and calendar. I shopped around, reading articles for about a month. I definitely wanted an app that would work on my iPhone and laptop. This app isn't perfect but I love the fact that you can share tasks with other users, have repeating tasks and make sub-tasks. Also the user interface is super easy to use. However, I do agree with the other reviews that the synching is a little buggy. It always pushes things from the desktop to the phone completely and reliably. But things entered on the phone, don't always make it to the desktop and, if they do, any note attachments don't. I've also found that completing a task on my phone means I won't be able to find it on the desktop. So, I try to enter things from the desktop app as much as possible. I'm not too upset because I've found it's not uncommon for apps that involve a calendar and a mobile/laptop synching element, to have similar bugs. On a minor note, I do wish that it automatically ordered tasks by date (soonest to most distant, with no due date coming last) in each project. It does so on the "today" and "this week" home screen but would be great if system-wide. Overall I'm happy with ToDoist and don't even mind paying the $30 per year for a premium subscription, so long as the developers continue to work out the bugs.
Great task manager but lacking in a few areas
by sflomenb on 2015/01/19 00:15
I have tried many task managing apps, and I think this app is the one for me. It has all of the essential features of a todo list app, such as multiple lists. For me, it is absolutely necessary to have all of my todos everywhere I am, on all of my devices. Not only does Todosit support the devices I have (Mac, iPhone and iPad) but 10 other platforms/applications as well. Todosit supports labels (or contexts, in other apps) and filters, so you can view exactly the right todos for the right time, place or any thing else you can think of. With a premium subscription of $28/year, you get notifications (either for time or by location), automatic backups, and notes/file attachment. Additionally, Todoist has an excellent collaboration system, allowing you to invite others to view your projects, and assign specific tasks to yourself or to others. There are a few lacking features. I love how it has a Today Widget and interactive notifications (new iOS 8 features). I would really like to see Handoff support between my iOS devices and Mac. Also, a big big missing feature is end dates for repeating tasks. Otherwise, the app is good. Everyone should try it, it’s free.
Perhaps the best list manager for IOS
by aCanuckintheUSA on 2013/09/15 17:55
I don't normally bother with writing reviews as I am usually too busy to take the time, however I felt that I had to offer a review as this app has exceeded my expectations. I have tried at least seven other "to do" apps including Wunderlist, To do, Tasks, etc- and this app has replaced them all. The best list manager is the one that you actually use- and for me, that breaks down to how easy is it to add an item quickly when you are on the go, the graphic interface, will it update and sync to all my devices (instead of separate lists on separate machines), and Todoist does all of that elegantly. I wish the app shared the same kind of robust interface as an actually application on my laptop (although the web interface is just as good as the IOS version), hence the 4 star rating. This is also one of the very, very few apps that I have actually paid a yearly subscription to because it is so absolutely essential in keeping me on track. Give this app a try- I will be surprised if you are dissapointed.
Excellent and Best of All
by uwabs on 2013/09/28 08:18
I had spent so much money on Task Management Apps ranging from Omnifous to Things and to the bottom of them all but never found any satisfaction in these Apps despite huge sums of money spent on them. They failed to meet what I would consider as the essential requirements expected of a helpful Task Management App in our modern day busy environment. Then when I was about giving up I ran into Todoist in the course of searching for better Task Management App that really meets the need. I bought it and began to check it out. Within minutes and with great delight I subscribed to the Premium Upgrade. I do not think I will ever remember or use the hundreds of Task Management Apps I had earlier purchased from the Itunes Store. This App is excellent and feature rich. The Support is great. I am just simply overwhelmed and can't wait to tell everyone I know to purchase the App without delay. Todoist is the best of them all and may remain the very best for a very long time!!!!
Great iPhone app and interface with other apps
by Jules42888 on 2014/02/01 05:43
The Todoist apps (I use iPhone and PC/windows app) keep getting better. I spent many hours doing research and testing out various productivity / to-do list systems and I think this one is the clear winner. For me cross-platform usage was key since I need to be able to enter stuff on the go on my iPhone but easier to modify stuff in detail on my PC. This does this fantastically and allows me to set a variety of parameters (priority, due date, project, adding files to tasks) easily. Two tips on this: --Give yourself a little bit of time to try it out before you make the final judgment -- it takes a bit of getting used to but is very fast once you've had a bit of time on it (this is the case for most of the to-do apps). --Upgrade to the premium version. For most of us, the impact of a good productivity app. is so much greater than the cost that it's worth trying it out with all the features.
Best task app ever, especially for ADHD
by twseal77 on 2014/08/31 16:01
I have ADD and I have been through a lot of apps and methods for trying to stay on task and remember stuff. This is by far the best app I have ever used... In fact so good that I normally don't write reviews, this is the first. It is very simple and quick to use, you van use it online on the web page on your PC with PC/mac app and on iPhone and iPad. I like the simplicity and ease of use. I like that I can add notes, attach files and keep categories for different things, like school, work, etc. So many apps and methods out there for ADD require a bunch of steps and processes and 'remember to remember' methods that don't work. If I could remember in the first place or keep my attention span long enough that might be ok, but I can't. This is the only app I have found that is simple and quick enough that I can pay attention and quickly add, update, and keep my life organized without being over complicated.
Works great, shareable, multi-platform, easy
by Kirk032167 on 2014/11/11 22:20
I have an iPad and an iPhone 6+. I'm not sure why everyone is complaining about this app. It works great. It syncs quickly. I can see it fine on my new phone. I find it easier to add items from my iPad, but that is because of the iPhone keyboard (which is certainly not the fault of this app). I can share my personal list with my spouse, and business todos with my business partner. We can assign tasks to one another. I add items from my iPad, then take my phone with me to the store if I am running errands. All synced and ready to complete. I also like the user rating. The more tasks you complete, the more experience your rating goes to (currently I'm a novice, but I am desperately seeking todos to increase my level :D). It does exactly what it advertises, which is help me keep track of and organize my todo lists. Great app. I would recommend it, and do.
Replaced so many other tools & Apps
by Dave Seville on 2014/11/20 04:44
After starting out as a trial customer for a short time I have been a premium customer for two years now. Your creativity is the only limitation as to what this program can do for you. This has replaced so many other apps and programs and paper methods that I was using I can't begin to list them all out. Just start using it right away on a simple basis then take some time in setting up how you want to use it and you'll be amazed what it can do. I have sections for business and personal and it's amazing how much more I get done and keep organized by using one premium app like this. I love that it is cross platformed and I can use it on my iPad, computer and iPhone and everything stays in sync. One of the best features I like is that I can have it email and or text me at certain times for tasks that I designate.
A flexible and feature-rich To Do app
by sloppyjack on 2013/09/06 00:44
I have recently come back to Todoist, after the recent updates. I love it. I left Remember the Milk. Why? There are a few things I need from a todo app: 1. Syncs with a good website 2. Simple 3. Flexible 4. Doesn't require a lot of thought to maintain Todoist ticks those requirements, with a pleasant to use experience. The website is great- it presents the most crucial information to you, adding tasks is a cinch, as is keeping as few or as many projects as you'd like. You can also add nifty colors to cue you. I have found that - even while applying GTD principles- I need to change my system occasionally to match my workload. Sometimes I have many folders to segregate tasks (and thinking) by project. Other times, I just want to keep my todos from getting forgotten. Todoist accommodates either. Easily. And, with a variety of views, the app and site allow you to keep the most important actionable info on front of you, when you need it. There is nothing over complicated here- no stars or next actions or whatnot. That means you can create you own system and it will work. And on the web you can drag and drop tasks and projects to reorder them (great) and set your own front page view (mind is P1 + next 7 days due). That could come to the app but I don't miss it.
Locks up after several updates
by To do list fanatic on 2014/07/28 09:45
I often need to reschedule tasks that I was unable to complete the previous day. As I go down the list reviewing each task and updating the due date the app will lock up. It is often making my changes but tasks don't visually move until I force the app the restart. It could be that this has been a long time issue but it is getting worse as we build up more list items. It has recently started to being unresponsive to any screen taps. It occasionally continues even after forcing the app to restart. If this continues we will need to look for a different solution. With that said it works great for keeping track of our family's very complex list of to do's. My husband, daughter, and I all use the app. One complaint with sharing projects is that it doesn't display them on the new shared user's screen the same. When it could be critical that the new invited user realize what project it is a part of.
No privacy, worthless offline
by GaryQual on 2014/04/28 02:15
As near as I can tell, all of your data is stored in the cloud on third-party serves, not even owned by the developer. The mere fact that the privacy policy is totally silent on the security of this data suggests that not only isn't it secure, so that both they and the unnamed third party can read your files, but the developer doesn't even appreciate the importance of maintaining the security of user data. Before any app can share data, it first has to create it on your own mobile device, so that you can use it. Simple, right? But if you install this app on an iPad without cellular, then get on the bus or subway to work, you're hosed. You can't even get started without logging in, and no network, no login. And what happens to your data if they go out of business? Backup to the close, and sharing with users are both great features. But for an app whose focus is personal data, if it doesn't first work reliably standalone, with no account creation required, it isn't worth trusting the developer with an e-mail address just to get started.
Great Desktop, Mobile is lacking
by neblotr on 2014/06/07 19:32
Kind of ridiculous as far as layout on the mobile app goes atm. It’s essentially a gigantic outline. No collapsing folders, nothing. As far as layout is concerned, Everyday app does a job orders better than this one, and they’re not even due to come out of beta till next week. I think the problem comes from the fact that they’re currently developing their application for 13 platforms. More or less stretched thin so to speak on development when you do that, or so it seems. Jack of all trades, master of none, as it were. Really needs some serious UI developments for the iOS platform. I’d venture to guess that a majority of the people that use this application do so from an iOS device and abhor the idea of being tethered to their laptop/desktop just because the mobile version is such an incredibly clunky P.O.S. It’s truly only good for a “mirror” of what you’ve entered elsewhere. This I say because: while you can enter tasks in this mobile version, it’s not at all fluid and certainly not enjoyable to enter subtasks for a large project of any real detail. I’m seriously hoping they fix these issues soon, because dollar for dollar, it’s actually cheaper to buy the full omnifocus suite (omnifocus 1 went for 3 years before “2”) than it is to pay for 3 years of todoist premium. They need to stop honing their app for business and start focusing on the individual, as I’m sure they make up the bulk of TD users.
Great Task Manager
by Richard Garcia on 2014/12/10 00:26
I have been searching for an app that can manage all of my tasks and projects, and this task manager gets the job done. It is the one app that can be integrated with other platforms very well such as gmail or sunrise calendar. It works great on my Mac and iPhone and all of my tasks are in my Todoist no matter what device I use. Ever wish to take an email that you would need to get back to (perhaps because of a lengthy research or response needed,) well in Gmail, there is a button that you can add to your browser which can save your emails as tasks. How about that???!!! It is truly a great task manager and would recommend it for anyone who has a lot of stuff on their plates and wants to quickly and easily jot down a to-do or reminder that they can circle back to when completed.
Love this todo app!
by ahaef on 2014/05/25 21:19
Full disclosure: I did end up subscribing to the premium service, but that's also probably the best endorsement I can give. Love the clean, simple interface for using the lists and checking things off, but still with tons of options when creating or editing a task. It can be as straightforward or complex as you want to make it. The daily email snapshot with reminders of how many things you did, how many you have to do that day, and how many points you have will either keep you hooked or annoy you; if it's the latter, they're easily turned off. Sync is super-fast (one of my complaints with other todo apps) and has never lost one of my tasks. No shared lists and no location-based due dates means this isn't my only todo app, but it's the one I use for all of my tasks!
Great For Collaborative Task Lists
by Edawg83 on 2014/07/12 02:59
I am a firm supporter as Todoist has really helped me get on track with list building. It will require an Internet connection to stay up to date, but it is meant for folks always on the go. At first, I maintained my own lists, and over time I have had to evolve and move them around. This has been very easy and quick to do, which I appreciate. I have expanded my list to incorporate my wife and colleagues at work. It has been a great resource to use collaboratively, and access to my list on my phone, desktop, or laptop have made it a huge plus. The additional features would be nice to haves, but the subscription process seems a bit steep unless more unique value is added. I think Todoist should survey their users to get a better idea of what they would pay for - just my two cents.
I've tried them all...
by Dougstump on 2014/12/12 03:57
For an early adopter of productivity apps, the one category in which I've struggled is to-do-list apps. They haven't satisfied my need for simplicity and depth, so I've remained a Franklin-Covey paper planner guy (ironic for someone who relies on his electronic devices to get everything else done). After a week of using this free version, I think I've found the right tool and plan on upgrading to the paid version to get more functionality. Right off the bat, I found the prioritization, categories and flexibility to create tasks and due dates (love how I can key in "every other day" in the browser version for repeat events) highly intuitive. And synchronization between devices is a snap--no waiting around like some other apps. I highly recommend.
Finally found it a great "To Do" organizer
by Rafamendes on 2015/01/03 13:43
I have been searching for an app to help me to organize my "to dos" for a long time. I used the tasks from outlook what was easy to link to emails, but very poor for all other things (project organization, search tools, etc). I liked todoist very much, it is easy to use, cloud and works perfectly on my laptop, iPhone and iPad, giving me efficiency to execute and organize my activities. I only didn't give 5 star because there is no link to outlook or Google mail yet, it would save lot of time if I could mark an email as "follow up" in todoist, also it is complicate to send files. That should create something that I could copy a file from email or or drive and paste in todoist. Other than these items, I like very much the app and are helping me a lot.
Just Right? Maybe so.
by pcborup on 2014/07/16 23:27
For a long time I have floated in between Omni Focus, Things, and a couple of other apps for task management. Each have their strengths but also sufficient weaknesses that I felt a bit like the three bears story (i.e. this one is too much...this one is too little...) Todoist may be that "just right" middle ground. It is taking some getting used to but one large plus is that it is very consistent experience across all platforms that I am trying. That includes all Apple platforms as well as Web and Windows. That in itself is a big positive as one of my complaints about other apps has been inconsistent experience. Also need to note that the sync between all devices is lightning fast! So while my rating is still a work in process my initial feedback is 4 out of 5.
Well implemented task manager
by Brianthreedee on 2015/01/25 14:44
Being new to the use of task management, I have tried several different apps. My requirements are based on my work force needs, multi platform support, ease of work flow integration, which also means ease of use, and collaboration tools. I've found that most of my needs have been met, but I'm not won over by the outlook integration. My complaint stems from two issues, I am unable to have the calendar sit either below, or atop the plug in, but only to the side. This takes up precious real estate. The second, is that I have to run the plugin, instead of using outlooks task feature. Admittedly my issues might be my own limited understanding and if so I'll gladly change my rating to five stars, but till proven otherwise I'll leave it at four stars.
Mostly Excellent
by Type1Runner on 2014/10/01 18:30
I really like this app a lot! It provides lots of ways to organize a group tasks. Prioritization is a possibility. Setting due dates is great. Just takes a little bit of time to figure out how to set your dates, especially recurring ones. My one really big complaint is that I paid for the premium version so that I could get push reminders on my phone, and that part of the app is not working. I'm frustrated about that part. If that gets changed and fixed I can change this review. But for now, I'm changing the app I use for task management. I need to push notifications, or I will miss important tasks. I will mention that I contacted the developers for technical support, and they are aware of and are working on the issue. As of today, it still wasn't fixed. So they issued me a refund. I really appreciate that.
Excellent cross platform app
by Dana Piwinski on 2014/12/24 15:17
I've been using for about a year and half. A very solid todo list manager that works equally well on my windows PC Chrome or IE browser, and on my iOS 8 devices. I have many small projects to manage concurrently, with some larger ones going at the same time. This app helps me organize all my projects with project folders and subtasks. It's easy to go through and prioritize tasks daily. I also use the Inbox to just quickly throw in a task that I later file under the appropriate project, and my iPhone lets me do that by just speaking and having that converted into the text for the task. Nice. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the calendar integration, which is being improved. I would like to be able to assign a date range to a task (and subtasks), and have that show up graphically on a calendar. If it could do that, I wouldn't need other tools to do a project work breakdown structure. I paid for the premium version, both for the additional features, but especially to encourage this company to keep working on what I believe is a solid product with even more potential. If you like it, you might do the same.
A sufferer of ADD lands the perfect app...⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
by Lakahata on 2014/12/08 08:20
...at least that's what the title of my review should be! I've searched high and low for a To-Do app that works with how I work. I've bought, what feels like, every single app you can imagine to help organize my life. From the free ones to the paid ones, all of them grabbed my attention for a few days but we're either too simple, too difficult or just didn't have the necessary components for my lifestyle. Todoist gives me the cross-browser, web-based, app platform I need to keep me from losing my job. 😉😉 That's why I went ahead and upgraded to premium which was never my intent when I bought the app. Thank you Todoist for an incredible tool as well as a great blog!
Very good tool. Works great.
by Paper solutions on 2013/08/10 18:45
I moved to this app from wonderlist which was really bad. So far I am very impressed. Love the time date stamp that is automatically input when you save the note. Wish it would open the attached emails on the phone app. That only works on the computer with outlook. Everything has been very good on this. Also on my iPad now. Really great. The latest update also corrected several thing. Mostly the way you view notes and the calendar option is so much better to move your to dos to the dates you want. Great app only getting better. One more item needed is to highlight the importance level color a little more. You can hardly see it. Thanks.
Simplicity conquers the world
by justDelmar on 2014/12/27 14:23
Todoist is a simple and easy to use task management app that really helps me conquer the world around me. I've tried just about all of the popular task management apps out there and I've stuck with this app the longest. It's intuitive, simple and functional without being overbearing. The app is flexible enough to let you manage your task the way you want and not by a particular process. However, it does support GTD for those that follow that methodology. I also love the integration with other apps and services especially the CloudMagic email app. Right now this is my goto task management app until another comes along to unseat the king. Now go out and be productive!
Finally found a system that works for me
by Furblong on 2013/08/12 15:46
Love this app, I made a project for my appointments so it replaces my calendar too. I now have all my info in one simple, searchable place. I like the addition of the Inbox for quick notes, then I go back after the meeting and assign times, projects and priorities. I don't know if it is new, but I also like seeing all my completed work under the Karma tab. I use this online with Chrome for Mac and PC and on an iPhone. I haven't had any of the sync problems other reviewers are writing about. Sometimes something seems missing but I search completed tasks and it is there, I had unintentionally checked the project.
Best todo service!
by Rjzmml on 2014/02/09 16:27
After trying many task lists, Todoist is my favorite by far. It is both minimalist so that you don't get to mired in organizing tasks, and flexible so that you can group tasks within other tasks, and now projects within projects if you choose. New features have been appearing, though I hope it also becomes possible to turn more of them off. "Karma" was introduced about a year ago, but I found it incredibly distracting until we were allowed to optionally turn it off a few months later. I hope the same happens with things like screen real estate being dedicated to congratulating me on having nothing due today!
Terrific little system
by Arthurbb on 2014/10/12 14:10
Works quite well for me; coordinating many little projects with 3-5 people and 5-10 tasks within each. What I like: - sharing with others in a project basis - ability to include documents and notes in a comment section under tasks. - syncing across every computing platform allows me to include anyone--no matter what platform they have. - ease at moving tasks from one project to another - interface to move deadlines from one date to another. -easy learning curve and UI layout of features works pretty logically and intuitively. Others willing to use it per my request. -very good syncing across platforms and subscription to ICal works well (task deleted takes item off calendar-okay for me) Dislike: Syntax for setting up repetitive and recurring tasks is way too complex, cryptic and unclear. Need better manual for this or improved implementation. Too many entry errors when using this UI for iOS8 is too different from OSX Mac version so that there is a learning curve (not too steep) for each and increases entry errors.
Poor UI design
by Value_Arb on 2014/10/29 17:08
Not as bad as Mac App, which is horrible/confusing & borderline unusable, the ioS version focuses on pretty over usable. Always multiple steps for adding anything, always confusing about how to do things or whether they are active or not. When you create a task you can't add notes unless you save it, return to your list, find it, and then open it in notes editing "mode". super confusing whether you've created recurring tasks or not. Accidently drag left? you just competed a task, watch carefully for tiny notification where you aren't looking, bottom of screen, to give you fleeting chance to undo. Developers don't understand how iOS apps should work, when to use gestures and how to use them, when to ask for confirmation, when to make it a 2 step process so important changes are clear to user before they allow them to commit, etc
Extremely Helpful & Great for Collaboration
by cr8907 on 2014/10/04 20:00
I'm the type of person who needs to be organized or my life gets hectic and I get anxious. This app helps me stay on track at work and at home. My boyfriend and I collaborate on our Errands project list and I love the "assigning tasks" feature so we can remind each other to do things and let each other know when we do something. It's really great for prioritizing tasks at work. The morning updates for what is on my to-do list for the day is great to keep me going. And I love that it syncs with google cal and that I can use the website or chrome app while at work. Download now! Free features are worth it!
Repeated reminders?
by Albert Song on 2014/10/22 15:35
I am a new user to this app. Am getting accustomed to it and like the simple look and limitless tags and projects you can add. The option of receiving multiple reminders for a task is also quite helpful as I often do not get to it the first time around. Sometimes I have tasks that need to get done each day, week, or month. It would be nice to be also have repeated reminders available as well. Also some of the options seem a bit too complicated, like the priority levels and sub-projects, etc. But perhaps that is just my own preference to keep things simpler. Overall, I am pleased with the app and find it worth the investment for my daily organizing needs.
Pros & cons
by hasnain22 on 2014/06/14 12:57
Pros: it's a great to-do & task app. Simple, pretty intuitive and boldly minimal. it does what it says it does. Cons: please understand that this is NOT an app to manage your projects - unless you have very few or simple ones. It's too limited for that. For example, it doesn't have categories (work, personal, home, side business...) to group several projects based on context. It also doesn't allow you to focus on tasks that are due today, by the project. Instead, you see all tasks that are due today (personal mixed with work mixed with home mixed with side business). This is frustrating, and at times infuriating, when you have a lot of things to work on across several projects for work. That's just a couple examples that this is not a project mgt app. I bought this app instead of Omnifocus because of Omnifocus' larger price. Now I regret it. And bear in mind, you have to keep paying yearly for Todoist to use simple features like sync. So to sum it up, this is a great task app for simple groups of lists, not an app to stay on top of several projects across the different parts of your life.
Clean and functional
by StoryDelver on 2013/06/22 18:33
The interface is pure Apple in its simplicity. Complexity is there, but hidden. Superb. Too many task manager tools try to do too much and clutter thief interface into I usability. Todoist has avoided this trap so far. Please create on iPad! The iPhone version simply does not utilize the screen real estate if the iPad optimally. In terms of functionality, the main weakness is task entry workflow. I suggest taking a page from brainstorming apps. In Todoist entering a new task takes two touches each. I come from the world of mind-map apps where it only takes a single touch to enter a new item. Hitting done sets you up to enter the next one. Only the first item takes two touches. When entering task/listitems your brain is much faster than your fingers. Remembering all the things you need to do or get is essentially a brainstorming exercise. Things come fast. Two touches per item becomes a pain right away. I did a test and found that creating a list of things todo in Mindmapper is three times as fast. That said, I use Todoist for its other features that mind-maps don't have.
Oh what todo, what todo
by NateHolder on 2014/09/12 11:47
I have downloaded at least 10 "to-do" list apps and nothing comes close to Todoist. I needed somewhere between a project manager and a To-do list, but I didn't need something that was made for three people to manage and have a team of engineers to set up. With its ability to be on anything I am on, even gmail, it gives me a way to get stuff done. Along with its ability to group things into projects the different spheres of my life are handled. Plus it encourages you daily, if you set it up, by giving you points so you even feel more productive when you are being productive. Love Todoist thanks developers! -Nate
Locking up as I reschedule!
by coolcatteacher on 2014/09/05 09:53
I agree totally with the review posted by list fanatic. I love this app because it integrates with Toggl and Gmail beautifully and is awesome on my PC-- but the iPhone app is buggy! I look at the list to reschedule and review and after three or so moves to another day--- bam-- I am locked up and have to restart. Sometimes it even loses what I have done. The iPhone app needs help ASAP- this is a huge problem! I have looked and looked and finally found the tool that meets every need but I also need the iPhone app to work. Please have your developers fix this! Today all of the words of my lists disappeared. About to restart and will likely be back but really- doesn't this show up in your own testing. I have screenshots - please fix!
Best To Do List On The Market
by Roadrunner2013 on 2014/12/27 03:28
I have tried for years to find a program that would sync with my Mac and my iPhone that was easy to use and time efficient. Many other apps I tried using required too much time,too much data entry, and I was spending more time updating the data entry than I was actually doing what was on the list. This app is fast, easy to do, and it updates in real time via the cloud. It also can be synced so that your to do list is visible in the Mac calendar. I absolutely love this app. I highly recommend it. It's because of this app that I have finally committed to using a digital calendar.
Ubiquitous Task Management that's easy to use
by Galahadz on 2014/07/21 13:03
I had been searching for a task app prior to starting a new job in a new industry and my research led me to Todoist. I began using it and quickly jumped to the paid version, having a need for email and calendar integration. What I like about it the most is the ease of capture...there is very little fuss involved in adding a task. I never fully got GTD until I had used this for a few weeks. I was capturing everything that needed my attention and forgetting about it until I was notified. My stress level plunged and my productivity rose. Did I mention it's everywhere? iPhone, iPad, browser, and PC and Mac. Get it.
Best
by drbenmd on 2014/04/11 15:48
I will just reiterate everyone else on here. While Im not a fan of the subscription price tag for a to do app, it synchronizes so well with Apple products and the tech world we live in. The sms text reminders was key for me, as I text people all the time so I always get my texts whereas I dont always see the push notifications. Also it has the easiest and quickest method for adding tasks. Adding tasks on my mac is just a breeze. Lastly I like being able to add tasks to diff projects easily, but still see them on a seven day schedule. This is a feature the Apple Reminders app glaringly lacks. Overall worth the price for me.
Great app
by eazyrooster on 2014/10/24 07:27
Fantastic to do/productivity app. It's very flexible for simple or even complicated GTD systems. It isn't the best. But it is close to Things or Omnifocus and adds the ability to be used on any platform. Mac, Windows, iOS, Linux, Chrome... Anything goes. That moves it to the top. The latest "bug fix" update is still pretty buggy. Lots of crashes. Widget doesn't really work like other widgets. You can't check things off from it like you can with other todo/task widgets. It freezes up often if you try to open the app from the widget. Swiping in the app has gotten very stiff. It's not a fluid motion anymore. Basically, they don't seem to be able to get it right for iOS 8.
A great app with room for improvement
by Johnolphnt on 2014/12/13 15:02
Todoist is perhaps the best task management app I have tried. It really excels in its flexibility across platforms because it's available for everything. Its web-app is great. I love that I can add tasks from my Windows laptop, iPhone, and iPad. I'm a premium use, so I think that makes syncing better It also handles repeating tasks well. It needs more options for end dates to repeating tasks. I haven't seen details for doing that in its documentation. It's biggest weakness is its poor implementation of sub tasks. They appear twice in your list of tasks. It's now clear which task they are appended to sometimes. I much prefer Wunderlist's system for sub tasks.
This is it! The BEST, SIMPLE yet VERSATILE
by Kinj84 on 2014/12/05 06:15
I spent money on several apps and softwares including omnifocus...and after spending so much time trying out the rest---this is THE best out there! I use it on my iPhone, MAC and my work Windows PC. It's super simple to use yet powerful... from reminders of your appointments to karma to keep you motivated! Paying for premium is super worth it. I manage my home/car's todos, family commitment, work todos and self health goals with it! Get things done, collaborate and reach your goals --- super productive! And on a side note, I am obsessed with getting things done and being organized- so if I love this app, so will you!
Love the Todoist app!
by jul22 on 2013/02/02 22:49
This app is awesome — easy to use and elegant! Todoist is my favorite task management system on the computer. Glad I upgraded to Premium a while back. My one hope is that they'll integrate sound alerts for push notifications soon — fortunately, the support staff are very responsive and told me they're currently working on it. Mobile push notifications work, but in the meantime I've decided to use email or SMS alerts and I have my iPhone set to do push notifications and sound alerts for those. That's working great for me so far. Wonderful that Todoist is so flexible in terms of reminders. Thanks Todoist team!
Simple and powerful
by Richard Radcliffe on 2013/12/19 18:38
I've used many apps for this purpose and todoist beats them all by a long shot. It is very sinple to use, it works across basically all platforms (very important for me), the ability to email new projects/tasks from anywhere is simple, the ability to add an email as a task to deal with later is simple and very useful, and, finally, $29/year is trivial. C'mon, that comes out to about $2.50/month. Trivial. My only complaint at this point is that I can't get the app to work on an older XP machine. No matter though. The website version is fully functional and looks and behaves just like the app.
Just what I wanted
by Missing deposits on 2014/01/17 01:33
I wanted a simple to do list that I could check off items on as I completed them. I didn't need it to sync with anything (though this will sync with the iPad's calendar.) I wanted it to do more than a single list (by days) and I wanted it to be easy to use, without requiring me to register somewhere. And I wanted it not to crash like Reminders does when I try to use it. Todoit fits all those things. My only complaint is that adding an item is not quite as simple as starting to type- you have to click on a + first. Other than that, it's very intuitive and easy.
Excellent To-do App
by Pelean on 2014/04/11 17:29
This is the app I've been waiting for to easily organize my tasks without being overly complicated. The Gmail integration is perfect to make emails into tasks I can see on the go. The iOS app admittedly has less functions without the Premium account, but is still useful. I rarely upgrade to Premium/ Paid subscriptions, but I purchased one for Todoist. It was totally worth the cost for the extra functions. Update: I love the added functions to the mobile app. It makes creating, finding, and making reminders of tasks much easier. Definitely an app I rely on every day.
It remembers so I don't have to!
by taotte-wi on 2014/12/01 17:20
There are so many things I need to remember to do for my small business, and I needed one place to enter things as soon as I think of them. I wanted something I could access from my iPhone, my iPad, and my laptop. Todoist fits the bill perfectly! If I think of something I need to do while I'm trying to sleep, I reach for my phone. During the day, I have a browser tab up on my laptop and check things off as I do them. There is so much functionality in the free version, but I may pay the fee anyway to support them and to get reminders. Love it!
Ferrari with a one-gallon gas tank
by sbroback on 2015/02/21 06:17
It’s awesome in a way that the tallest building in Iowa is. Yes, it’s feature checklist is quite solid. Was excited to see what was touted as an outlining-centric task app, and paid an astounding $28 for a year of usage. It’s outlining is inadequate, and while issues are easy to fix, people have been waiting years for a few simple enhancements. If you’ve used real outliners before, todoist is like running in water. 1) Outlines don’t collapse on ios. 2) Click a heading and tasks lower in hierarchy don’t appear on ios. 3) Outlining not interactive compared to other drag and drop outliners. 4) Completed tasks just vanish, aren’t greyed out (scores of requests by users for this to be fixed are ignored.) I’m only 2 days in, and my jaw keeps dropping from the glaring omissions. $28??
LOVE this task management app!!!
by Aerynsun2221 on 2014/07/19 12:28
I was using Omnifocus, but their sync was awful. After a few times of losing my tasks and having to re-enter them, I ditched it and found Todoist. Let me just say that it 's the most beautiful and easiest task management app our there. I can easily updated, enter or delete my tasks from any device with no problem. I also love that it's not bloated with too many bells and whistles. Many other apps are either too bare bones or have way too many features that I'll never use. If you're looking to easily manage your tasks, then this is the app to use!
This is one of the 3 best apps I have ever used.
by amny1976 on 2015/02/14 01:43
This app is amazing. It truly puts the "smart" in smart phone. I am a premium user -- and to have this app on a every device I use is worth the price. I am more productive than I have ever been and don't forget anything. Once I put it in todoist I don't worry about ever forgetting it. I use the app for months long projects to the most mundane tasks. The text reminders on the premium version are a life saver. This is an app I use every single day. I have downloaded hundreds of apps, but have never been so satisfied with an app to actually write a review.
Works Flawlessly
by Zeuserkitty on 2013/07/21 13:24
I held off writing a review because I wanted to use the iphone app for 3-4 months before rendering an opinion. This is one of the most dependable apps I have ever used; it loads immediately upon tapping the icon and the list displays clearly and in a logical manner. The phone app version of various computer-based programs often have either poor functionality or are not easy to figure out, so this has been a nice surprise. It's very easy to edit your to-do list from this app and because of that, I find myself using it even more than I thought I would.
