It's what I've been looking for
by Jguy3139 on 2016/02/09 11:52
Simple, and as complex as I want to make it.
Please get this app
by PaulMOlson on 2016/02/08 05:52
If you have trouble with staying on top of things than this is the app to get. It has radically changed my life and helped me to destress and stay on top of things. I also really like how it can be seamlessly integrated into Sunrise calendar! Really incredible
Love IT
by A non taken name on 2016/02/08 02:41
I love routines and this makes that simple. I like to have interruptions in my routines and this allows that
Almost Everything I Want in a Task Manager
by GodDamnItFrank on 2016/02/08 02:05
Todoist is, in my opinion, the best task manager out there. I love it and depend on it every day. I have one issue to report and two features to request. The issue, is that markdown notation is supported in the web version but not iOS (thank you for supporting markdown). The feature requests are: 1. To be able to specify the project when using the natural language input method. I believe @ is used for tags so perhaps # or &. 2. To have a project's next action filter or view, since this is a crucial aspect of GTD and currently is not supported by Todoist.
K.I.S.S.
by theentropykid on 2016/02/07 19:48
I keep it simple. I use the inbox and no projects. Store all my tasks here. I use my brain for thinking and Todoist for remembering. It's helped my business a ton.
Best for creative professionals
by BebopDesigner on 2016/02/07 19:19
I researched night and day and wasted loads of time and money using others apps and nothing comes close to the amazing functionality and experience that Todoist is. Incredibly friendly and intuitive. You can tell right away they invested endless hours polishing usability, experience and UI design. It's been a life changer for me and it's now part of my process.
Amazing
by VerbalGerbil on 2016/02/06 00:56
This app may have a little bit of a learning curve, because it is much more modular and general than most planners, it is amazingly well designed and has become my one and only planning app.
Too....
by Blond37 on 2016/02/05 06:17
Too expensive! $28 a year? Too complicated! Delete!
Very useful
by Schultzie28715 on 2016/02/05 01:43
I use this app every and throughout the day. Super helpful in keeping an organized and productive life!
Overrated
by myqwell on 2016/02/04 22:09
Difficult to figure out. Seemingly zero security features or even a way to ascertain whether there are any. Does this import data from text or csv files? Doesn't say. Not worth the five bucks.
Simply the best
by cgrantmaledy on 2016/02/04 05:14
You need gmail and outlook to natively add to the same list? Check. You need quick easy triage of tasks? Check. You want to see which projects you've been making headway on? Check. You want it on every format, every device, everywhere? Check. This app has changed my life for the better.
Great productivity app
by ebaralaye on 2016/02/04 02:50
My goto app for managing my todos. I wish there was a way to set goals for blocks of time along with for specific days, having a range for deadlines. Pleased otherwise. Really like the calendar integration. Use it everyday.
Feeling Stuck with Todoist
by DoubleDowney on 2016/02/03 12:44
IFTTT doesn't integrate with Any.do or Things, so to have the Evernote, Slack and Gmail IFTTT integrations that are useful to my job, I don't see any other option but to use Todoist, despite preferring other "to do" apps better. My concerns with Todoist are that the interface is not nearly as clean as it could be and it's not fun to use. For example, it's not as fun or satisfying of an interaction to cross something off my list as it is on Any.do. I also find bugs in Todoist such as the Karma feature having messages showing up as a notification even after I have read the message. The message can't be crossed off or deleted as far as I can figure out, so I have a notification every time I log in. When I look to see when my premium subscription expires, it says "Null". If I weren't paying for the app, these examples among others wouldn't annoy me as much. Hoping that the user interface will become more sleek and that actions within the app will feel more fluid in future updates. And also hoping these guys are making enough from premium subscription sales to keep fueling more of that kind of innovation.
So far so good
by TedR77 on 2016/02/03 05:29
I like what I've used so far. I haven't upgraded to the full paid version, and at nearly $30 it is quite an investment and not sure the extra features are necessary.
Great!
by adammcentyre on 2016/02/02 23:05
Clean and easy to use. Perfect task management app.
Great App
by PSU5510 on 2016/02/02 03:25
Helps me tremendously to stay focused and get a lot done as a student.
It needs better reminders/ alarms
by Stone cold607 on 2016/02/01 06:18
I use this for everything and it's upsetting that there is no Siri integration or force touch. I wish it had more features though and you know what I wish it was easier to use on the Apple Watch. Over all though I love this app and use it everyday and I don't know where I would be without it.
Best App for an ADHD Adult
by Anw.rootbeer on 2016/02/01 03:19
I've been using Todoist Premium for years. I love that it has a clean, direct interface, but also has great, easy-to-use advanced features. Todoist is great for the beginner, and scales with your needs.
Excellent app
by yelsew27 on 2016/02/01 03:17
This is probably the best todo app available. Great features.
Best To Do app
by Scaps25 on 2016/02/01 02:33
Definitely the best To Do app out there. I've tried a bunch but find this simple and easy to use.
It Hurts Me to Say
by omilk on 2016/01/30 04:10
A ton of promise, but no investment by the developer. As of today, nearly 5 months since iOS 9 and watchOS 2 were released, and no support (at all) for either force touch or watch complications. Almost every (mostly free) app on my phone supports force touch, and all serious (read: premium/fee based) productivity apps have complications. Perhaps the development team manages its backlog by random assignment or the company is dealing with cash flow issues. Either way, it's a bad shake for users. Given that I pay $30 p/year for premium service, I feel it is a reasonable expectation that the app to stay current with the features of the platform.
Love this program
by Seleste1240 on 2016/01/30 03:32
My husband and I searched high and wide for a task management app that worked for both of us (I'm a mac girl, he's a pc guy). This app did the trick. I love the multiple ways of organizing the tasks. I love the look and clean feel of the program. It's easy to use but can handle complex or simple tasks. This app has changed my task management so much! Highly recommend it
Bakar
by Bakar119 on 2016/01/30 02:59
Awesone app that helped me a lot to organize my life! This lists keep me focused.
Great app overall
by Cinna16 on 2016/01/29 06:07
Very useful tool. Todoist app and all the synced interfaces with Chrome, MacBook, etc. together make a great experience
Last Update Issues
by Dprose on 2016/01/28 21:55
Does not work correctly after the latest update - tasks being saved to the wrong date or being lost altogether - please help!!
Great Platform
by Portals21 Chris S on 2016/01/28 06:38
I had OmniFocus 2 for iOS, but I still use Windows 10 throughout most of my day, so I decided to make the switch to Todoist. It has a web app too for those who need it. The only reason I held the 5th star is because it is not yet integrated into iOS reminders. Overall it is a great app and platform that can be accessed from all devices. Powerful features to beat.
Very helpful
by Kam W. on 2016/01/28 02:45
Keeps all my tasks in order just as advertised, very intuitive to use!
Flexible & efficient
by kb4less on 2016/01/27 22:52
I switched to Todoist from OmniFocus. I love the flexibility it provides with tags and stored searches. They are implemented intuitively and unobtrusively. I don't have a bunch of views getting in my way. I feel like my tasks are always at my finger tips, but I can still craft more detailed views when desired. Big fan!
Missing Folders Feature
by Saurik on 2016/01/27 04:57
Todoist is a great app for prioritizing and de-cluttering your tasks in daily life. However, it would be better if the developers would include folders.
Best to do app!
by Sark1s on 2016/01/27 02:13
This is the best to do app!
Love it
by Meatbal on 2016/01/26 02:53
This works very well with my workflow. It integrates well with gmail and chrome. I especially like the ability to send myself reminders for a future time through email and text messages. Also, I can use IFFY to integrate with Siri and Alexa.
Efficient and simple to do list
by Ybenini on 2016/01/25 19:20
I tried many, good ones and bad ones. But I stick with this one. Easy to use, sync across devices and other third party apps. Recommend .
Easy to use
by j2snell on 2016/01/25 16:38
Great app, easy to create my own categories and track my tasks. I often work on several large projects concurrently and this helps me stay on top of each one.
Unreliable
by cd. on 2016/01/24 16:50
Todoist is well-designed, but frustratingly unreliable. The negatives that come with misfiring/not-firing reminders, strange repetitive task behavior, and other annoyances outweigh the generally good layout and cloud-based, all-over access. You simply can't rely on Todoist 100% of the time, which is what I need in a task management app.
Only a week into already it's short comings are over shadowing any values.
by Deetle 3 on 2016/01/24 10:56
Only a week into it it's short comings are already over shadowing any value this app has. I liked that you can move tasks around and I still like it. But as that's all this app has going for it , it gets very limiting very quick . Onto the next task manager .
The best losing Innovation
by TampaKD on 2016/01/23 13:50
This was the best todo app and I still use it but after testing other apps clearly todoist has fallen behind in features such as integration with other apps like Evernote, working and syncing with Apple reminders,or mail and no force touch etc.
Puts my mind at rest
by Bonsaiman1421 on 2016/01/22 22:00
The app is useful for freeing my mind of all the things I must do. It enables me to not fret about forgetting something necessary for the future. The reminder feature enables me to proceed throughout a day without thinking about I am forgetting something enabling me to focus on a task at hand until my next task must be started. I find myself highly motivated by its efficiency analytics. Seeing my productivity visually enables me to assess how I'm doing. Well designed and easy to use. The new swipe features are a great addition, and remind me of another app I love, mailbox.
Simple and clean
by OpusB on 2016/01/22 17:53
I did extensive research into great project management and todo lists before getting this app. This one is incredibly easy to use and organize my day. They've thought through this process really well. It's easy to put in projects and tag using natural language. It's also really easy to organize my work and personal life into this one app. I highly recommend this app for organizing todos... Especially for the GTD crowd. Only issue is the app doesn't update each morning with the badge app icon until I open it. Other than that, I think this is perfect!
Love it.
by Denny Yin on 2016/01/22 12:40
Love it. Use it every day. Like the team collaboration function. I havnent seen another app of this quality that also has team function.
Unable to Update.
by CharlieS615 on 2016/01/21 13:35
The update button is available, but when I select it the button goes away for a split second, and then comes back.
Major issues with recent update
by nickbaxter on 2016/01/21 05:37
I've loved this app until the most recent update. Now it's crashing, and I am losing items on my lists. Please fix ASAP!!
Love it
by Jbmeans on 2016/01/21 01:58
Why all the whining? This is great app. Super easy to add a task and date on your mobile. Lots of organization and tagging, which is extremely easy to do on the desktop. You can easily make it work with different systems like getting things done or waiting-doing-done. It integrates with my sunrise calendar, so tasks and appointments show up on the same day. Direct Siri integration would be nice. Now I send myself an email and add that because it integrates with gmail.
Finally a to do app that does everything
by Galaphile82 on 2016/01/21 01:57
The free version has enough to get by, but the premium is a cheap price and has all the features I've been looking for! A step up from Wunderlist, this is the last to do app I will need. (Lightning fast syncing too).
Good but can be better.
by Cerratom on 2016/01/21 01:49
I like how simple it is to use. But I think it can be better. For example organizing sub projects can sometimes be a hassle. Also you can't put a description on the task.
Amazing!
by iluvcabrera4311 on 2016/01/21 00:05
This app defines organization. I work as a program coordinator and an adjunct professor and this helps immensely!
Manage Tasks & Activities NOT Time
by brandon.middleton on 2016/01/20 02:23
This app has been so easy to use. Always being updated and improved. Fun, fast, and easy to use on mobile app (where it gets used most). The desktop app is great too and keeps me synced on all devices.
Newest update crashes
by GaratX6 on 2016/01/20 01:59
Can't even open it on mobile. I've tried re-loading it twice so far.
Love it!
by Uksuzie on 2016/01/20 01:27
I started using this app to help me get organized and it has really helped me do that. I found that breaking big tasks up into smaller more manageable chunks helps things seem more doable. I'm enjoying how much more organized my family is. I can't figure out how to make tasks recurring or duplicate a task, that would be useful.
Needs ECHO/ALEXA integration
by bmfb1980 on 2016/01/20 01:26
It's thorough and you can do a lot. But why not integrate with Alexa? Would be 5 star...
Still no Siri Integration
by Finance76 on 2016/01/20 00:48
After all this time to not support adding tasks with Siri is ridiculous. Update: still don't see any plans to integrate Siri. It makes no sense.
Amazing.
by Liiex on 2016/01/19 05:52
Simply amazing, I'm hooked on using this app and I love it.
Makes my life easier.
by Ruiqiqiqiqi on 2016/01/19 05:20
It's easy to use and really help me finish more work everyday!
Perfect!
by Pastor_Hughes on 2016/01/17 03:04
Gotta love this app. It does exactly what I need from it.
Loving it so far & motivates me to be more productive
by cupofjoe108 on 2016/01/16 20:10
I was looking for a to do list app that I could use across multiple devices. Researching a few different tech sites lead me to Todoist. I immediately bought Premium seeing there is a 30-day refund guarantee. After using a week, the app has accomplished the bare minimum I was looking for - a to-do list across devices, and then-some. It has just enough organization features (scheduling, notifications, labels) but not overwhelming. Plus their gamification feature "Karma" which gives points for completing tasks is making me more motivated to keep better track of all my tasks in Todoist and helps make me stay proactive in being productive.
Oh So Helpful
by sallem5 on 2016/01/16 04:17
I've been using Todoist for years, and I love it. Sure, it's not perfect---like another review mentioned, there's no tier system when looking at the today view, so visually it can throw you off. To be fair, that's not an app issue, that's a Todoist issue. The only thing were the web-based Todoist does better than the phone app is in general searching. I literally didn't think for months that the app allowed you to search for tasks until I accidentally stumbled across it. Even with those issues, Todoist still gets 5 stars. The app actually works better when reassigning a task due date or marking complete, mainly because of being able to swipe on your phone.
Terrific, A Must for Me Now
by jtk00 on 2016/01/16 04:06
I was an avid Omnifocus user for over a year. However, I got to the point where I felt I spent too much time tinkering with it and changing things rather than just getting tasks done. Don't get me wrong, Omnifocus is amazing. But I wanted something more simple, with quicker task entry, yet still robust options when I need it. I checked out all the leading task managers and Todoist seemed to fit what I was looking for. Plus it looked like a minimalistic, gorgeous UI. After spending a few days using it I upgraded to the pro version and haven't looked back. That was 2 months ago and I use it constantly. I run my entire life out of Todoist. It has tags, custom folders, sub-folders, theme choices, natural language entry ... everything I need and it's simply a joy to use. The natural language entry is pure genius and means I can fly through entries. I can't say enough good things about it. Absolutely love it!
Better than Omnifocus..
by Pianoxcape on 2016/01/15 18:11
I'd been using Omnifocus for years - and recently made the move to Todoist since my new job is Windows-based (OF is only available on Mac/iOS). After using Todoist (premium) for several weeks, I have to admit it's even better than OF. Todoist is on all platforms - with the same user interface. I'm amazed at the simplicity and flexibility. Recurring tasks, sub tasks, projects, filters, location-based tasks, it seems to have it all! It provides just enough power so you're not constantly "tweaking" - easy to setup and use. I rate this 5 stars...
Without ability to see completed tasks free version not useful
by Ns1230123 on 2016/01/15 17:15
I liked the look and feel of app but without ability to view my completed tasks, free version is not useful for me so after using 3-4 days moved to other app.
Best/Not free/life changer!
by iMurhaf on 2016/01/15 03:16
Its gunny how peaple wants everything for free, and they want other peaple to work for them! Anyway, this is a life changer!! The best that you could find out there. I did try many others, but this with all the features are top! (Note: no one paid me, but those are facts)
Simple and Efficient
by vab3 on 2016/01/15 03:04
Excellent to-do application.
Great app!
by Sleeperpants on 2016/01/14 23:13
Love this app!
Great App
by r2kopes on 2016/01/14 22:45
The app syncs seamlessly from phone to all of my other Apple platforms. Easy to use, easy to create projects, tasks, todos, or reminders One criticism would be the option to copy & paste items. Work on that & I'll give you that 5th star
Great but could use a few changes
by Bumps into things on 2016/01/14 19:43
I love this app. After going through every conceivable task managing app, ToDoist has become the one I am sticking with. That being said, one aspect that really confuses me is how they utilize subtasks. I see a subtask in the same list as my higher level tasks which makes my brain go for a spin. I might not be using them right but I feel these two levels of tasks should be better separated. Also, they need to find an easier way to edit due dates and recurring tasks.
Great App and Company with some features needed
by Public schoolteacher on 2016/01/14 06:18
I heard about this app a few years ago, but I didn't bother with it until I started reading their blog and getting a lot of good ideas from that. It's a nice looking app with easy interface. I wish it could link to calendars and email. Maybe I'm missing something, but it's hard to figure out how to do that from the mobile app.
Life changer
by Mr TA Unorganized on 2016/01/14 02:05
This app is super intuitive. Whenever I think of something I need to do I put it in the app with a date to accomplish it. Personally I set up 6 categories that cover all the major aspects of my life like work, family, finances, etc. Then I regularly go through these adding things I need to get done. I set reminders (which is really easy) and then I get it done. The last couple months I've used this app I've gotten far more done and have been way less stressed. Its literally helped me to become a new person. I would recommend it to anyone.
Best To-Do list app
by aditya akdio on 2016/01/13 23:47
No questions asked.
Slew of idiotic UI choices
by TreoRenegade on 2016/01/13 22:31
You've had a productive day. You simply want to check off 7 items. Takes 14 taps, since the dev inexplicably hides this critical feature. Want to create a repeat task, change a due date, or similar standard feature? Waste more time, playing hide & seek. Definitely will not be renewing my annual premium membership. Far too many nods to cute rather than function. One extra star for unique SMS reminder feature.
The Best
by gilgamesh7 on 2016/01/13 03:47
The absolute best to do list app I have used so far. Easily schedule, categorize and set due dates for all your most important tasks! I use it for everything!
Good idea. Everything costs money
by Stinky634 on 2016/01/12 06:53
Free app, ok! Premium features, that's fine. But almost everything that's actually useful about a to do list costs extra. Reminders, comments to your own project, labels, all require a $30 a year membership.
Love with a bug
by Alexa Rosario on 2016/01/11 20:29
Let me start by saying I LOVE ToDoist. My life is in here. With that said... I've been asking for a watch complication since forever now... Templates are still terrible. No way to sort tasks by date, priority or name in filters and no way to bulk assign labels. Those are the features we've all been asking for and it seems like you guys are completely ignoring us. GIVE US WHAT WE WANT! (Please).
Great app but Watch support needs improvement
by Smskelto on 2016/01/11 14:51
This app is great on the iPhone. I love it! The one improvement I would like is faster more frequent syncing between multiple devices when multiple users are actively working on the same set of tasks. The Watch app is a completely different story though. My main complaint is how difficult it is to complete a task on the watch. The button is so small and it is very hard to use and I don't have very big fingers! Fix these 2 things and this is a 5 star app!
Easy to use and powerful features for power users!
by ambushnell on 2016/01/11 04:58
Highly recommend Todoist for both the casual or power user alike.
Best In The App Store
by Donteee5 on 2016/01/10 23:52
This app made me switch over from Evernote. Very easy to use, pleasant interface, and features that aren't complicated. A great productivity tool.
Helps me not get overwhelmed with life
by AugustAngel on 2016/01/10 05:15
This is by far the best to do/list making app I've ever used, and it's literally saving my life by reducing my stress. There are a few things I see here and there that I wish were different. I had one issue where a completed task reared its ugly head and I had put in notes for it, but once it's completed, you can only see the title. When you have to select a color, you have to remember which shade (of blue - there are a few!) to set it as instead of showing the colors and what are already set to those colors or the colors that don't have anything set to them. The last update added some great functions. Love this app. ETA: So happy they added a recurring function!
Terrific app for staying on top of everything
by Getting and staying organized! on 2016/01/10 04:35
Integration with basically most platforms allows for constant use which is essential for any system of to do lists.
Todoist is awesome!

The ways it can be used and accessed from almost anywhere is ridiculously awesome. Great job guys. Keep it up.
Free is lacking & paid is overpriced
by TimDawgz on 2016/01/09 13:28
The free version of this app is terrible. It does nothing that a basic task list should do. Reminders are a premium feature? Really!? Reminders!? Every app on the App Store wants to notify (i.e. "remind") you about a million different things. The built in iOS task manager, which integrates with Outlook, has reminders. That's such a basic feature to make "premium". Speaking of which, the premium upgrade is ridiculously overpriced. Like comically overpriced. You want $30/yr so I can get reminders and some pretty colors for themes that I'll never use? Oh I know, I get labels and other junk. I'd gladly do premium if it weren't so ridiculously overpriced. You guys are asking for more than what I paid online file storage & sync for 250gb of space. You think this app is doing something more than that? Nope. I go premium on many of my apps but the value has to justify the cost and in this case the two do not balance. Not even close. 👎
Best to do list app

I love this app it is the best one I have tried so far. I use it to sync projects to all of my computers and phone
It's great

The perfect personal task management app

So flexible, beautifully designed, intuitive.... Genius app and has changed my work life for the better. Less stress knowing I'll never drop the ball or let something fall through the cracks
Task List Review
by Rothhouse on 2016/01/07 17:33
Have been using this app for more than a year now and continue to find more was to enjoy its functionality. The sharing feature is one of my favorites. The settings and options are pretty straight forward even in the free version.
It's a great app. But it's also a system.
by JimV on 2016/01/07 05:46
Been using it for a couple of months and the ubiquity of the app on all platforms, browser and Outlook add ins make this usable through convenience. Also. I use the delegate capability with my assistant which works quite well.
Great Task Manager

Highly recommend
Excellent Tool
by KBogan on 2016/01/07 02:59
Great for keeping track of what needs to get done while I'm on the go. Dunno if I'm gonna spring for the bonus features yet, which would be helpful, but the free use is still outstanding.
Nice but..
by Ayeshah_Rose_Ifran on 2016/01/07 01:31
It's a nice app to get your to do list organized. This app wasn't for me. I didn't find nothingness special about it. It does work and it is easy to use. It's just not for me.
Amazing!
by drewwilkerson on 2016/01/06 06:43
Very helpful. Highly recommended.
It's great!
by JagorBom on 2016/01/06 03:03
Stop looking through the App Store for the best app to get your overwhelming workload organized, you've found the best app. If you use the app in a disciplined way, meaning you use it for ALL your tasks and you keep up with list maintenance on a routine basis (twice daily for me) it WILL make your life better. With task management you get out what you put in. The goal of the tool should be to get out of the way as quickly as possible, and this one does just that. I'd give it more stars if there were more to give!
YES
by THEmrReynolds on 2016/01/05 03:52
Best thing I've done with my life since that time I never signed up for Facebook. I don't want to say life-changing because that would be...inadequate. Todoist is experience-shifting. Italics. It has brought order and, dare I say, meaning to my once scattered, wasted and, dare I say, meaningless existence. If you value the fate of humanity, nay, the Galaxy, NAY, HUMANITY, you will begin using Todoist immediately. You're welcome.
Premium upgrade charges you but...
by Noworky3740 on 2016/01/05 02:33
The app (and website) will deny you access to premium features, despite being charged. Now I need a task to remind me to open a support case but I can't set a reminder because I'm not premium, or am I?
Perfect

Terrific app. Love the syncing with chrome extension. Love natural language input.
Works well for my needs

Best Task Management Tool Period
by TMorss on 2016/01/01 16:31
I have been using Todoist for over a year. After showing my boss how I use it we have implemented it for the entire company. If you really want to get things done, this platform is it.
Does not work with Watch OS 2 complications.
by Porter Wilson on 2016/01/01 14:15
UPDATE: Doesn't work for complications on the watch. Needs that for five stars. I recently broke up with my long time task manager to use this. I test out almost everyone I see. Great features here. Easy to use. Solid on iOS. Very easy to share projects and assign tasks. UPDATE: I've been using his for quite a while now and I love it more than when I first started. New iOS update is perfect. Use it all day every day.
Great app
by Paywea on 2015/12/31 14:13
A little buggy in the cross-device functionality, but overall very easy to use.
Just right

Not quite timeful but
by Sebaz88 on 2015/12/28 15:23
I love timeful and that's the app that I used and love it. I think this app is the a solid app and the best thing is that is available anywhere. Get the premium version for free in app sumo
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.
Very well designed.
by BereanTRB on 2015/04/15 20:44
One of my primary reasons for using a smart phone is for project and task management. I have used some other apps that functioned pretty well, but Todoist is the best I've used so far. First, a good task management app has to let me easily set up and organize multistep projects but also allow me to enter something simple like "call Bruce" without multiple screens, clicks, or swipes. Another important thing for me is effective and flexible management of recurring tasks. For example, things like the second Saturday of each month or 30 days after I've completed a task. Also, I need a good desktop/laptop interface for entering longer projects. Todoist gives me all of this plus some great extras. The variety of other platforms is nice. The color-coded graphs in Karma are a convenient way to see how I spent my time (the colors on the graph correspond to the color codes on your projects). But the final features that really make Todoist shine for me are the flexibility and power of labels and filters. These give me a lot of power and flexibility to shape and use Todoist my own way. All of this comes together to make Todoist the most powerful yet elegant task management app I've used so far.
The Perfect App for Time-Management
by A Former Procrastinator on 2015/04/07 16:24
The latest update to Todoist on iOS has really improved the experience of using the app. Creating and deleting tasks are no hassle, and now it takes seconds to assign a parent task to the created task. Overall, this app has really improved my ability to prioritize. I am able to see any tasks that I might have for the upcoming week, as well as the tasks that I need to complete simply by viewing the app from the home screen. What initially drew me to this app was its ability to create subtasks, and subtasks to the subtasks, a feature that is often not included in other task-management apps. Therefore, I am able to easily separate huge projects into simpler components. Even without upgrading the app, one can experience all of the benefits of having Todoist. My only complaint, which is relatively minor, is that there is no way to view tasks that do not need to completed in a week (so viewing a month's worth of tasks, or seeing a specific day months later, is impossible). As I mentioned, this is not an urgent complaint, and should not degrade from the experience. This app would benefit those with busy schedules or procrastinators.
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.
Mixed feelings in general
by Shopping2 on 2015/04/02 01:07
I like the premise of Todoist and I rely on their many integrations but I have to say their natural language date management was a real disaster when compared to Remember the Milk. Some features, such as creating filters by project using the "p:" syntax have existed on desktop but NEVER worked on mobile. We're talking about something I've waited for almost a year now. With this latest update, the recurrence syntax for "after 1 day" is broken. I think testing for recurrences "every, each, after" should be part of your automation suite. What's going on here? I can't use the iOS app at all now and need to use the web product. When I posted a note in the support form, I got no feedback. The product does many things well, but I question if as a customer I'm being listened to and as someone who is in the industry and is a stickler for quality - I'm disappointed by the regressions I see in their native clients. For the record, I don't give his feedback arbitrarily - I have accumulated more than 14,000 points so hopefully it shows my feedback comes with some thought for whoever on the team might read this.
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.
One of the Best
by LoveNewEngland on 2015/09/19 11:13
I have been using Todoist after using a host of other productivity apps, and find this to be one of the best. The apps simplicity keeps me motivated to use it, it's flexibility allows me to see my tasks any way I choose, for the day, by project, by label and the email reminders have saved me on more than one occasion. I can easily adopt the GTD management process or my own modified version if I choose, and there is plenty of integration support with the email tools I use. Plus the price of premium is affordable give how some alternative apps have gone overboard in charging for features that I'd never use. The free version of Todoist is loaded with a good amount of features so for some people the premium subscription may not be required. Most importantly I have complete visibility into what I need to get done across multiple platforms (mobile, web) and Todoist keeps it simple enough to motivate me to use it every day.
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.
One of the best but still have a few wishes...
by Hotfish2012 on 2015/07/23 17:29
I've tried all sorts of to do list methods and apps. I think the GTD principles are the gold standard. Applying them in different apps is what makes a difference for me. The ease of inputting, updating, rearranging ends up determining how much I use the system. Todoist does a fine job. There are a few improvements that I wish would be made -or perhaps they exist but I have not figured out how to use them, which itself speaks to the need to clarify instructions. First, when I think of a project I need to complete, I start to list all of the steps t need to complete it, often not in proper sequence. The ability to tuck the steps under the project is easy enough but I haven't found the way to resequence the sub steps Also I haven't found how to link a task with an Evernote note. I suppose I need to make a project of figuring those things out, but really should not have to. All in all, this is a really terrific app nonetheless.
Terrific, A Must for Me Now
by jtk00 on 2016/01/16 04:06
I was an avid Omnifocus user for over a year. However, I got to the point where I felt I spent too much time tinkering with it and changing things rather than just getting tasks done. Don't get me wrong, Omnifocus is amazing. But I wanted something more simple, with quicker task entry, yet still robust options when I need it. I checked out all the leading task managers and Todoist seemed to fit what I was looking for. Plus it looked like a minimalistic, gorgeous UI. After spending a few days using it I upgraded to the pro version and haven't looked back. That was 2 months ago and I use it constantly. I run my entire life out of Todoist. It has tags, custom folders, sub-folders, theme choices, natural language entry ... everything I need and it's simply a joy to use. The natural language entry is pure genius and means I can fly through entries. I can't say enough good things about it. Absolutely love it!
This is the app that works for me
by Decapede on 2015/09/24 05:56
I tried Things, OmniFocus, and The Hit List, none of which have been able to deliver the kind of results as Todoist has. Or rather, I haven't been able to achieve the same results with those apps, even though they are more comprehensive and "powerful" in some ways. Perhaps it was the steep learning curve. Todoist allowed me to begin at s very intuitive place, the to-do list, and then expand into labels, contexts, projects, etc. The functionality is simple and increases in complexity as the user increases in skill; simply put, those other apps were too much too soon. Not to say those won't work, they very well might, it depends what your workflow looks like. Big deal breaker for me was the inability to use OmniFocus on my work computer, which is Windows. Same goes with Things. Cross-platform syncing is crucial for me, and Todoist is seamless. $29/yr. for premium is totally worth it.
Got to give it 5 because it's the best out there, but...
by AAntonow on 2015/05/19 12:49
This is absolutely the best to do software I have seen so far, I have seen many. I've been using Apigo todo list before for three years and it stunk the basic functions but its operation felt like pulling teeth, had bugs, and it's synchronization was flaky. This one works like a dream, synchronizes over multiple platforms perfectly, is designed a beautifully and logically. Yet it is still missing couple of features that you would think they'd figure out over the length of the company's existence: when you sorted by label it doesn't do secondary sorting the project therefore if you are working on the tests that belong to single label you may have to jump from project to project to be able to concentrate on one – this is silly. So, it doesn't have a simple email this list function, although you can give access to anybody for free.
Sync-O'licious
by BeezerDude on 2015/06/28 21:42
Any browser, any device, simple UI, essential feature set for a task manager. Good features for light project management, even for teams, but not truly a project management software solution as such, not yet anyway. I'm not looking for a beefy PM solution so works extremely well for my personal and even work related projects (my work projects are self managed and don't require budget tracking or Gantt charts). I use Todoist with Sunrise Calendar and am very happy. I upgraded to paid version to get templates and other enhanced features. 5 stars for overall execution and current version feature set, less one star for cost. In my opinion, Todoist could gain more subscribers by adding a mid-tier price for the full task related feature set sans file attachment and charge $15/yr. Charge the $25/yr price for file attachment, maybe storage and third party storage retrieval integration as well as deeper current and future PM features. Those are great features to have and build out, but not necessary for all task management users. I've spent way too much time comparing and experimenting with task and task/calendar combos--probably every one in the App Store. Don't bother with the dairy-themed products and folio UI stuff. Those were the old days. Todoist and Sunrise are an unbeatable and inexpensive (totally worth supporting) combo that work beautifully on any device. A must for multiple and cross-platform users.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Finally!
by CherLC on 2015/04/15 17:28
Since I got my iPhone four months ago I have searched through the to do list apps every couple weeks to research without having found the right one. This is the first one I have found that replaces paper for me! I am very pleased with the common language scheduling to be able to have every Tuesday or even 'today and tomorrow and then every Saturday' for a task is great! Rescheduling is a breeze and editing as well. Any task can have sub tasks as well to help visually organize. I wish that the update for the app wasn't $29 ANNUALLY. $29 is a lot for an app in the first place, much less each year... That being said, I would have gladly invested $5 for this free version... Even up to $10 if it came with the tasks-completed memory portion and more color schemes. Thanks for making a paper free app I can use comprehensively and with ease!
My Favorite App!
by andrwstw on 2015/07/04 02:34
I am a university professor, and I never seem to have enough time in the day between research, teaching, and service. Todoist is the best task manager app that I've used, and it's the easiest and most elegant solution for me. I keep all of my tasks organized and can see what I need to do every day. I love the new swiping gestures to complete or reschedule tasks. The new themes and animations look super polished, clean, and make using the app super easy and fast. Students often talk to me after class, and if I can't answer a question immediately, I can quickly add these notes to the app and return to them later. I have become more productive and responsive to my students, colleagues, and collaborators requests and tasks. I don't know how I functioned before this app, but I am so happy I have it now to manage my endless tasks and responsibilities.
Vs Omnifocus; and newest updated is great
by richjns on 2015/04/04 06:04
The newest update allows batch editing, which lacked in the mobile app in the past and was my biggest complaint. I have used Omnifocus and Wunderlist for several months at a time in the past as I found my way to Todoist. In the end, this one is the best for my purposes. Having projects and day-to-day checklists that you can custom sort (instead of having to sort by due time in Omnifocus) is great. You can link Google Drive (or Dropbox) documents to a checklist item/project and then changes made to the file on any device are synced to the cloud. This is in contrast to my biggest complaint with Omnifocus -- it would attach the file and you could access it on all devices, but making changes and then re-uploading the file was a tedious process. Overall this is a fantastic application.
Simple, powerful, and elegant!
by iMacgyver74 on 2015/08/01 16:06
The GTD methodology by David Allen has really worked well for me over the years. I previously used OmniFocus on my Mac and iPhone, but the synchronization wasn’t reliable anymore and the interface became clumsier with each version release. I just started using Todoist two weeks ago and absolutely love it so far! It has all the features I like/wanted in a GTD task manager, and none of the extraneous bells and whistles that most apps tend to add. The synchronization is instant, seamless, and reliable. The developers did a truly wonderful job creating a great user experience for both desktop and mobile that’s practical, helpful, and efficient to use every day. The annual price for the premium version is well worth it if you need a serious task manager you can depend on. Simple, powerful, and elegant sums it up for me!
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.
Excellent for motivation
by MStephens1234 on 2015/03/25 19:57
I'm slowly having my palm pilot pried out my hands and this app is helping with that. Things I love: - the ability to focus just on today's tasks - the ability to add labels and view all tasks with those labels - the ability to create separate projects and include (or not) those in with main tasks - the extreme flexibility of how due dates can be input. It can be simple, or It can get pretty complicated. (That's almost like programming) - the tracking of completed tasks. They don't just disappear forever, they go to a karma done list where I can sit and exult over all I got done. - the ability to reorder tasks by dragging them to reflect the order I anticipate doing them. - the ability to create three levels of sub tasks in projects. Things I don't care for: - setting priority on a task makes it rise to the top and stay there. I understand why, but I'd still like to be able to move it around. - i can't see tasks I've set for days farther ahead than 7. I can easily forget I put them in and put them in multiple times. - I can't see how to add notes to tasks. As you can see, these are small quibbles, so I'm mostly quite satisfied with this app. If my productivity for the year matches my productivity over the first three days I've had it, it will $28 well spent.
Todoist - It is the system!!
by Rate Mint on 2015/11/21 14:25
I have tried several systems for managing my projects and tasks and Todoist is the system that I find most helpful. The number one biggest reason is the Microsoft Outlook extension that allows mw to convert emails to tasks and the tasks are linked to the email. Most of my tasks arrive as emails. With Todoist, I convert these emails to tasks quickly and easily. The second reason I find Todoist productive is the wide range of platforms on which Todoist is available. I use Todoist on my iPhone, my iPad, Windows, Outlook.... I can organize tasks by projects and view the tasks by due date or project. Because I use it on every platform I have, I can access everywhere. As someone said, the best task/project manager is the one you use regularly. I use it everyday and learn to do more with it.
Great Task Manager
by KingRichard26 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!
A few years makes a big difference!
by ImpressedByAfterYou on 2015/04/27 15:36
Tried todoist a few years back when it was web only. I liked the clean look and simplicity of it back then but it was a bit limited as far as functionality. I decided to try it again about a month ago and wow! I'm now actively using it in iPad, iPhone, my Mac, and occasionally on the web. Wherever I am, I'm able to quickly look up my projects and tasks or add new ones. So far everything stays in sync beautifully. When I need to add attachments, I can. If I need to turn a task into a project or a project into a subproject of another subproject, I just drag and drop... And voilá! Really could be much easier to use and I have to say, the product has come a long way in the past few years! Keep up the good work guys!
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.
Great Wunderlist Replacement
by SVKinAZ on 2015/06/13 18:15
If you’re looking for a new task manager now that Microsoft has acquired Wunderlist, Todoist is it. Not only does it match Wunderlist feature to feature, it also bests Wunderlist’s features in some ways. For example, Todoist’s handling of labels is much better than that of Wunderlist. Cross-platform support is outstanding. I particularly like the e-mail plug-ins for Outlook, Gmail, Postbox, and more. For those needing the Pro version, the cost of Todoist Pro is much cheaper than Wunderlist Pro. My only complaint would be that Todoist keeps more features as part of the Pro upgrade than Wunderlist, but since I’m a Pro user anyway, it doesn’t bother me. Most users won’t need those features. The app’s design is simple, efficient, and effective. Highly recommended.
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.
Almost perfect
by MiRa : ) on 2015/06/16 11:04
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. Until last month, I was 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, and need to reschedule or reprioritize. My dreams were realized in the release of Version 10 for iOS. Bulk changes are now easy. And it is also easy to add tasks between other tasks by "pinching" open a spot in a list, and to indent tasks as subtasks. Todoist is so easy to use that it integrates seamlessly into life on the go or in the office.
No calendar view, but easy to use on many devices
by Surfer806 on 2015/03/02 08:17
My biggest gripe with this is that there isn't a full calendar view. It would be really nice to have a month-long or week-long view to visualize what I have due when. Also REALLY wish there was a "schedule for later" feature so tasks that aren't due immediately would just disappear until later and my to do lists would be less cluttered. I'm an executive assistant so I have 8 million pending tasks at all times and not all are immediate. The main reason I do like and use this app every day is that I can seamlessly use it on my iPad, iPhone, and on the web from anywhere. Super super helpful and love that they don't charge for each device like some other apps do. Also upgrading for the reminders and notes was really worth it for me
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.
Excellent Task App and Amazing!
by BEEEFSTAA on 2015/09/23 15:50
Not only are you synced up everywhere Super easy and intuitive task adding The location reminders are the BEST. Let's you Set up your own system of lists. Mine is Master todo list. All those items have no dates, they just need to get done. They all apply to a specific project with a specific due date. Every single item in master list advances those projects. Second list is "waiting on", although do to the multiple inboxes setting in gmail, I might scratch this. The title is self explanatory Third list, someday/maybe This is what lets me capture the storm of of random insights, plans, and ideas for later consideration. Empty out into master lists or the trash. This system helps you walk around confidently and with an empty and open aware brain thats able to shift to intense focus on cue cuz it's not preoccupied; and simultaneously let's you be receptive to those grand ideas and plans your unconscious brain constantly produces. Remember if you don't actually DO anything with the unimaginable steam of original ideas that come to you everyday, then your brain will know better than to waste your consciousness with any.
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.
Free is lacking & paid is overpriced
by TimDawgz on 2016/01/09 13:28
The free version of this app is terrible. It does nothing that a basic task list should do. Reminders are a premium feature? Really!? Reminders!? Every app on the App Store wants to notify (i.e. "remind") you about a million different things. The built in iOS task manager, which integrates with Outlook, has reminders. That's such a basic feature to make "premium". Speaking of which, the premium upgrade is ridiculously overpriced. Like comically overpriced. You want $30/yr so I can get reminders and some pretty colors for themes that I'll never use? Oh I know, I get labels and other junk. I'd gladly do premium if it weren't so ridiculously overpriced. You guys are asking for more than what I paid online file storage & sync for 250gb of space. You think this app is doing something more than that? Nope. I go premium on many of my apps but the value has to justify the cost and in this case the two do not balance. Not even close. 👎
Best User Friendly Tool to Learn Collaborative Project Management
by darmok on 2015/05/09 16:41
Pros • Integration with Sunrise calendar app makes it easy to see your complete appointment and task load for a time period so you can avoid overloading • Ease of use simplifies training and increases retention of users • Basic service allows users to learn benefits of collaborative project management, so they can appreciate why the premium option is so worthwhile • Projects, Sub-projects, Tasks and Task Dependency is included with basic service. • Premium includes Custom Filters, Notes, Attachments, Search, and Project Templates Cons • Missing Update view. As changes to tasks are made, it's important to have one place were you can see that history. Something like a social media news stream, but for project and task activity like comments and changes made. The next best service with a strong basic package that helps you show people the value, before paying for premium service is Azendoo. Their app is getting better, but they do not currently allow you to resort tasks with mobile app, only via the web browser. Their interface is also not as clean or user friendly. Todoist it is the best value in collaborative task management.
Clean, consistent, and cross platform
by huwe on 2015/05/30 02:03
I've used paid versions of Omnifocus, Things, ToDo, and several others I don't recall. It's a highly personal tool so the only way I know to do it is get one and live with it for a while and see if you can make it fit your style. Todoist does that for me. I'm mainly in the Apple ecosystem, but still have to use other os's and the web version works great. I do like the native apps for my mac & iPhone, but web access is nice when I'm in another environment. The Zapier integration with Evernote is awesome and I really like their implementation for printing hard copies when I need to. Is it perfect - no, but none of them are. Todoist has a pleasant interface and can be bent to my work style so I'm very happy with it.
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.
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.
Finally: Sub Folders in Easy To Use To Do Program
by Hlenow on 2015/06/11 19:07
I have used them all, Omni Focus, Things, and all the rest. For me, the ability to easily build sub folders in To Doist is the thing that got me. I find adding tasks is easy, giving them all the info needed is easy and working with the existing lists just intuitive and easy and complete. I am a lawyer trying to keep track of the many tasks for each of my clients and the many projects for each client. This is the best program for me because of its intuitive interface and deep feature set. I tried hard to love OMni focus, but it just didn't work simply enough for me. Things won't, as a matter of principle, allow sub folders.
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!
Best task manager EVER!!
by dragonfly09 on 2015/05/16 16:54
I have used almost ALL of them and been disappointed. This is the first one that I would ever consider paying the full price for. I can write multiple projects, daily and weekly checklists, sub-projects, invite collaborators and manage everything from my phone and desktop integrated with Outlook. Best of all the calendar feature allows you to QUICKLY mark something as today, tomorrow or next week and have a list of items from every project due "today", "tomorrow" and the "next 7 days" show up in their own lists - something maddeningly missing from other task managers. I will be using this product until the day I die. Thanks SO MUCH for creating it.
Easy, intuitive, effective
by MNK94025 on 2015/04/20 15:44
I was skeptical of any to do list app as the act of writing, and the thought time spent crafting my lists helps me process the bigger picture that individual tasks are supporting... But I'm really impressed with how this app has supported the creative-thinking aspects of my time management. Simple yet effective. The ability to easily reorder tasks and prioritize is great. Using it is very intuitive. Only wish there was an easy way to print all open tasks (rather than printing one category at a time ) as I really like having a hard copy of the big picture to muse over. I'm sure I will use this more and more over time and take advantage of all its functionality.
Oh So Helpful
by sallem5 on 2016/01/16 04:17
I've been using Todoist for years, and I love it. Sure, it's not perfect---like another review mentioned, there's no tier system when looking at the today view, so visually it can throw you off. To be fair, that's not an app issue, that's a Todoist issue. The only thing were the web-based Todoist does better than the phone app is in general searching. I literally didn't think for months that the app allowed you to search for tasks until I accidentally stumbled across it. Even with those issues, Todoist still gets 5 stars. The app actually works better when reassigning a task due date or marking complete, mainly because of being able to swipe on your phone.
Loving it so far & motivates me to be more productive
by cupofjoe108 on 2016/01/16 20:10
I was looking for a to do list app that I could use across multiple devices. Researching a few different tech sites lead me to Todoist. I immediately bought Premium seeing there is a 30-day refund guarantee. After using a week, the app has accomplished the bare minimum I was looking for - a to-do list across devices, and then-some. It has just enough organization features (scheduling, notifications, labels) but not overwhelming. Plus their gamification feature "Karma" which gives points for completing tasks is making me more motivated to keep better track of all my tasks in Todoist and helps make me stay proactive in being productive.

Simple, and as complex as I want to make it.

Almost Everything I Want in a Task Manager
by GodDamnItFrank on 2016/02/08 02:05
Todoist is, in my opinion, the best task manager out there. I love it and depend on it every day. I have one issue to report and two features to request. The issue, is that markdown notation is supported in the web version but not iOS (thank you for supporting markdown). The feature requests are: 1. To be able to specify the project when using the natural language input method. I believe @ is used for tags so perhaps # or &. 2. To have a project's next action filter or view, since this is a crucial aspect of GTD and currently is not supported by Todoist.
K.I.S.S.

I keep it simple. I use the inbox and no projects. Store all my tasks here. I use my brain for thinking and Todoist for remembering. It's helped my business a ton.
Best for creative professionals
by BebopDesigner on 2016/02/07 19:19
I researched night and day and wasted loads of time and money using others apps and nothing comes close to the amazing functionality and experience that Todoist is. Incredibly friendly and intuitive. You can tell right away they invested endless hours polishing usability, experience and UI design. It's been a life changer for me and it's now part of my process.
Amazing
by VerbalGerbil on 2016/02/06 00:56
This app may have a little bit of a learning curve, because it is much more modular and general than most planners, it is amazingly well designed and has become my one and only planning app.
Too....
by Blond37 on 2016/02/05 06:17
Too expensive! $28 a year? Too complicated! Delete!
Very useful
by Schultzie28715 on 2016/02/05 01:43
I use this app every and throughout the day. Super helpful in keeping an organized and productive life!
Overrated
by myqwell on 2016/02/04 22:09
Difficult to figure out. Seemingly zero security features or even a way to ascertain whether there are any. Does this import data from text or csv files? Doesn't say. Not worth the five bucks.
Simply the best
by cgrantmaledy on 2016/02/04 05:14
You need gmail and outlook to natively add to the same list? Check. You need quick easy triage of tasks? Check. You want to see which projects you've been making headway on? Check. You want it on every format, every device, everywhere? Check. This app has changed my life for the better.
Great productivity app
by ebaralaye on 2016/02/04 02:50
My goto app for managing my todos. I wish there was a way to set goals for blocks of time along with for specific days, having a range for deadlines. Pleased otherwise. Really like the calendar integration. Use it everyday.
Feeling Stuck with Todoist
by DoubleDowney on 2016/02/03 12:44
IFTTT doesn't integrate with Any.do or Things, so to have the Evernote, Slack and Gmail IFTTT integrations that are useful to my job, I don't see any other option but to use Todoist, despite preferring other "to do" apps better. My concerns with Todoist are that the interface is not nearly as clean as it could be and it's not fun to use. For example, it's not as fun or satisfying of an interaction to cross something off my list as it is on Any.do. I also find bugs in Todoist such as the Karma feature having messages showing up as a notification even after I have read the message. The message can't be crossed off or deleted as far as I can figure out, so I have a notification every time I log in. When I look to see when my premium subscription expires, it says "Null". If I weren't paying for the app, these examples among others wouldn't annoy me as much. Hoping that the user interface will become more sleek and that actions within the app will feel more fluid in future updates. And also hoping these guys are making enough from premium subscription sales to keep fueling more of that kind of innovation.
So far so good
by TedR77 on 2016/02/03 05:29
I like what I've used so far. I haven't upgraded to the full paid version, and at nearly $30 it is quite an investment and not sure the extra features are necessary.
Great!
by adammcentyre on 2016/02/02 23:05
Clean and easy to use. Perfect task management app.
Great App
by PSU5510 on 2016/02/02 03:25
Helps me tremendously to stay focused and get a lot done as a student.
It needs better reminders/ alarms
by Stone cold607 on 2016/02/01 06:18
I use this for everything and it's upsetting that there is no Siri integration or force touch. I wish it had more features though and you know what I wish it was easier to use on the Apple Watch. Over all though I love this app and use it everyday and I don't know where I would be without it.
Best App for an ADHD Adult
by Anw.rootbeer on 2016/02/01 03:19
I've been using Todoist Premium for years. I love that it has a clean, direct interface, but also has great, easy-to-use advanced features. Todoist is great for the beginner, and scales with your needs.
Excellent app
by yelsew27 on 2016/02/01 03:17
This is probably the best todo app available. Great features.
Best To Do app
by Scaps25 on 2016/02/01 02:33
Definitely the best To Do app out there. I've tried a bunch but find this simple and easy to use.
It Hurts Me to Say
by omilk on 2016/01/30 04:10
A ton of promise, but no investment by the developer. As of today, nearly 5 months since iOS 9 and watchOS 2 were released, and no support (at all) for either force touch or watch complications. Almost every (mostly free) app on my phone supports force touch, and all serious (read: premium/fee based) productivity apps have complications. Perhaps the development team manages its backlog by random assignment or the company is dealing with cash flow issues. Either way, it's a bad shake for users. Given that I pay $30 p/year for premium service, I feel it is a reasonable expectation that the app to stay current with the features of the platform.
Love this program
by Seleste1240 on 2016/01/30 03:32
My husband and I searched high and wide for a task management app that worked for both of us (I'm a mac girl, he's a pc guy). This app did the trick. I love the multiple ways of organizing the tasks. I love the look and clean feel of the program. It's easy to use but can handle complex or simple tasks. This app has changed my task management so much! Highly recommend it

by Bakar119 on 2016/01/30 02:59
Awesone app that helped me a lot to organize my life! This lists keep me focused.
Great app overall

Great Platform
by Portals21 Chris S on 2016/01/28 06:38
I had OmniFocus 2 for iOS, but I still use Windows 10 throughout most of my day, so I decided to make the switch to Todoist. It has a web app too for those who need it. The only reason I held the 5th star is because it is not yet integrated into iOS reminders. Overall it is a great app and platform that can be accessed from all devices. Powerful features to beat.
Very helpful
by Kam W. on 2016/01/28 02:45
Keeps all my tasks in order just as advertised, very intuitive to use!
Flexible & efficient
by kb4less on 2016/01/27 22:52
I switched to Todoist from OmniFocus. I love the flexibility it provides with tags and stored searches. They are implemented intuitively and unobtrusively. I don't have a bunch of views getting in my way. I feel like my tasks are always at my finger tips, but I can still craft more detailed views when desired. Big fan!
Missing Folders Feature
by Saurik on 2016/01/27 04:57
Todoist is a great app for prioritizing and de-cluttering your tasks in daily life. However, it would be better if the developers would include folders.
Best to do app!
by Sark1s on 2016/01/27 02:13
This is the best to do app!
Love it
by Meatbal on 2016/01/26 02:53
This works very well with my workflow. It integrates well with gmail and chrome. I especially like the ability to send myself reminders for a future time through email and text messages. Also, I can use IFFY to integrate with Siri and Alexa.
Efficient and simple to do list
by Ybenini on 2016/01/25 19:20
I tried many, good ones and bad ones. But I stick with this one. Easy to use, sync across devices and other third party apps. Recommend .
Easy to use
by j2snell on 2016/01/25 16:38
Great app, easy to create my own categories and track my tasks. I often work on several large projects concurrently and this helps me stay on top of each one.
Unreliable
by cd. on 2016/01/24 16:50
Todoist is well-designed, but frustratingly unreliable. The negatives that come with misfiring/not-firing reminders, strange repetitive task behavior, and other annoyances outweigh the generally good layout and cloud-based, all-over access. You simply can't rely on Todoist 100% of the time, which is what I need in a task management app.
Only a week into already it's short comings are over shadowing any values.
by Deetle 3 on 2016/01/24 10:56
Only a week into it it's short comings are already over shadowing any value this app has. I liked that you can move tasks around and I still like it. But as that's all this app has going for it , it gets very limiting very quick . Onto the next task manager .
The best losing Innovation
by TampaKD on 2016/01/23 13:50
This was the best todo app and I still use it but after testing other apps clearly todoist has fallen behind in features such as integration with other apps like Evernote, working and syncing with Apple reminders,or mail and no force touch etc.
Puts my mind at rest
by Bonsaiman1421 on 2016/01/22 22:00
The app is useful for freeing my mind of all the things I must do. It enables me to not fret about forgetting something necessary for the future. The reminder feature enables me to proceed throughout a day without thinking about I am forgetting something enabling me to focus on a task at hand until my next task must be started. I find myself highly motivated by its efficiency analytics. Seeing my productivity visually enables me to assess how I'm doing. Well designed and easy to use. The new swipe features are a great addition, and remind me of another app I love, mailbox.
Simple and clean
by OpusB on 2016/01/22 17:53
I did extensive research into great project management and todo lists before getting this app. This one is incredibly easy to use and organize my day. They've thought through this process really well. It's easy to put in projects and tag using natural language. It's also really easy to organize my work and personal life into this one app. I highly recommend this app for organizing todos... Especially for the GTD crowd. Only issue is the app doesn't update each morning with the badge app icon until I open it. Other than that, I think this is perfect!
Love it.
by Denny Yin on 2016/01/22 12:40
Love it. Use it every day. Like the team collaboration function. I havnent seen another app of this quality that also has team function.
Unable to Update.

Major issues with recent update
by nickbaxter on 2016/01/21 05:37
I've loved this app until the most recent update. Now it's crashing, and I am losing items on my lists. Please fix ASAP!!
Love it
by Jbmeans on 2016/01/21 01:58
Why all the whining? This is great app. Super easy to add a task and date on your mobile. Lots of organization and tagging, which is extremely easy to do on the desktop. You can easily make it work with different systems like getting things done or waiting-doing-done. It integrates with my sunrise calendar, so tasks and appointments show up on the same day. Direct Siri integration would be nice. Now I send myself an email and add that because it integrates with gmail.
Finally a to do app that does everything
by Galaphile82 on 2016/01/21 01:57
The free version has enough to get by, but the premium is a cheap price and has all the features I've been looking for! A step up from Wunderlist, this is the last to do app I will need. (Lightning fast syncing too).
Good but can be better.
by Cerratom on 2016/01/21 01:49
I like how simple it is to use. But I think it can be better. For example organizing sub projects can sometimes be a hassle. Also you can't put a description on the task.
Amazing!
by iluvcabrera4311 on 2016/01/21 00:05
This app defines organization. I work as a program coordinator and an adjunct professor and this helps immensely!
Manage Tasks & Activities NOT Time
by brandon.middleton on 2016/01/20 02:23
This app has been so easy to use. Always being updated and improved. Fun, fast, and easy to use on mobile app (where it gets used most). The desktop app is great too and keeps me synced on all devices.
Newest update crashes
by GaratX6 on 2016/01/20 01:59
Can't even open it on mobile. I've tried re-loading it twice so far.
Love it!
by Uksuzie on 2016/01/20 01:27
I started using this app to help me get organized and it has really helped me do that. I found that breaking big tasks up into smaller more manageable chunks helps things seem more doable. I'm enjoying how much more organized my family is. I can't figure out how to make tasks recurring or duplicate a task, that would be useful.
Needs ECHO/ALEXA integration
by bmfb1980 on 2016/01/20 01:26
It's thorough and you can do a lot. But why not integrate with Alexa? Would be 5 star...
Still no Siri Integration
by Finance76 on 2016/01/20 00:48
After all this time to not support adding tasks with Siri is ridiculous. Update: still don't see any plans to integrate Siri. It makes no sense.
Amazing.
by Liiex on 2016/01/19 05:52
Simply amazing, I'm hooked on using this app and I love it.

Gotta love this app. It does exactly what I need from it.
Loving it so far & motivates me to be more productive
by cupofjoe108 on 2016/01/16 20:10
I was looking for a to do list app that I could use across multiple devices. Researching a few different tech sites lead me to Todoist. I immediately bought Premium seeing there is a 30-day refund guarantee. After using a week, the app has accomplished the bare minimum I was looking for - a to-do list across devices, and then-some. It has just enough organization features (scheduling, notifications, labels) but not overwhelming. Plus their gamification feature "Karma" which gives points for completing tasks is making me more motivated to keep better track of all my tasks in Todoist and helps make me stay proactive in being productive.
Oh So Helpful
by sallem5 on 2016/01/16 04:17
I've been using Todoist for years, and I love it. Sure, it's not perfect---like another review mentioned, there's no tier system when looking at the today view, so visually it can throw you off. To be fair, that's not an app issue, that's a Todoist issue. The only thing were the web-based Todoist does better than the phone app is in general searching. I literally didn't think for months that the app allowed you to search for tasks until I accidentally stumbled across it. Even with those issues, Todoist still gets 5 stars. The app actually works better when reassigning a task due date or marking complete, mainly because of being able to swipe on your phone.
Terrific, A Must for Me Now
by jtk00 on 2016/01/16 04:06
I was an avid Omnifocus user for over a year. However, I got to the point where I felt I spent too much time tinkering with it and changing things rather than just getting tasks done. Don't get me wrong, Omnifocus is amazing. But I wanted something more simple, with quicker task entry, yet still robust options when I need it. I checked out all the leading task managers and Todoist seemed to fit what I was looking for. Plus it looked like a minimalistic, gorgeous UI. After spending a few days using it I upgraded to the pro version and haven't looked back. That was 2 months ago and I use it constantly. I run my entire life out of Todoist. It has tags, custom folders, sub-folders, theme choices, natural language entry ... everything I need and it's simply a joy to use. The natural language entry is pure genius and means I can fly through entries. I can't say enough good things about it. Absolutely love it!
Better than Omnifocus..
by Pianoxcape on 2016/01/15 18:11
I'd been using Omnifocus for years - and recently made the move to Todoist since my new job is Windows-based (OF is only available on Mac/iOS). After using Todoist (premium) for several weeks, I have to admit it's even better than OF. Todoist is on all platforms - with the same user interface. I'm amazed at the simplicity and flexibility. Recurring tasks, sub tasks, projects, filters, location-based tasks, it seems to have it all! It provides just enough power so you're not constantly "tweaking" - easy to setup and use. I rate this 5 stars...
Without ability to see completed tasks free version not useful
by Ns1230123 on 2016/01/15 17:15
I liked the look and feel of app but without ability to view my completed tasks, free version is not useful for me so after using 3-4 days moved to other app.
Best/Not free/life changer!
by iMurhaf on 2016/01/15 03:16
Its gunny how peaple wants everything for free, and they want other peaple to work for them! Anyway, this is a life changer!! The best that you could find out there. I did try many others, but this with all the features are top! (Note: no one paid me, but those are facts)

Great App
by r2kopes on 2016/01/14 22:45
The app syncs seamlessly from phone to all of my other Apple platforms. Easy to use, easy to create projects, tasks, todos, or reminders One criticism would be the option to copy & paste items. Work on that & I'll give you that 5th star
Great but could use a few changes
by Bumps into things on 2016/01/14 19:43
I love this app. After going through every conceivable task managing app, ToDoist has become the one I am sticking with. That being said, one aspect that really confuses me is how they utilize subtasks. I see a subtask in the same list as my higher level tasks which makes my brain go for a spin. I might not be using them right but I feel these two levels of tasks should be better separated. Also, they need to find an easier way to edit due dates and recurring tasks.
Great App and Company with some features needed
by Public schoolteacher on 2016/01/14 06:18
I heard about this app a few years ago, but I didn't bother with it until I started reading their blog and getting a lot of good ideas from that. It's a nice looking app with easy interface. I wish it could link to calendars and email. Maybe I'm missing something, but it's hard to figure out how to do that from the mobile app.
Life changer
by Mr TA Unorganized on 2016/01/14 02:05
This app is super intuitive. Whenever I think of something I need to do I put it in the app with a date to accomplish it. Personally I set up 6 categories that cover all the major aspects of my life like work, family, finances, etc. Then I regularly go through these adding things I need to get done. I set reminders (which is really easy) and then I get it done. The last couple months I've used this app I've gotten far more done and have been way less stressed. Its literally helped me to become a new person. I would recommend it to anyone.
Best To-Do list app
by aditya akdio on 2016/01/13 23:47
No questions asked.
Slew of idiotic UI choices
by TreoRenegade on 2016/01/13 22:31
You've had a productive day. You simply want to check off 7 items. Takes 14 taps, since the dev inexplicably hides this critical feature. Want to create a repeat task, change a due date, or similar standard feature? Waste more time, playing hide & seek. Definitely will not be renewing my annual premium membership. Far too many nods to cute rather than function. One extra star for unique SMS reminder feature.
The Best
by gilgamesh7 on 2016/01/13 03:47
The absolute best to do list app I have used so far. Easily schedule, categorize and set due dates for all your most important tasks! I use it for everything!
Good idea. Everything costs money
by Stinky634 on 2016/01/12 06:53
Free app, ok! Premium features, that's fine. But almost everything that's actually useful about a to do list costs extra. Reminders, comments to your own project, labels, all require a $30 a year membership.
Love with a bug
by Alexa Rosario on 2016/01/11 20:29
Let me start by saying I LOVE ToDoist. My life is in here. With that said... I've been asking for a watch complication since forever now... Templates are still terrible. No way to sort tasks by date, priority or name in filters and no way to bulk assign labels. Those are the features we've all been asking for and it seems like you guys are completely ignoring us. GIVE US WHAT WE WANT! (Please).
Great app but Watch support needs improvement
by Smskelto on 2016/01/11 14:51
This app is great on the iPhone. I love it! The one improvement I would like is faster more frequent syncing between multiple devices when multiple users are actively working on the same set of tasks. The Watch app is a completely different story though. My main complaint is how difficult it is to complete a task on the watch. The button is so small and it is very hard to use and I don't have very big fingers! Fix these 2 things and this is a 5 star app!
Easy to use and powerful features for power users!
by ambushnell on 2016/01/11 04:58
Highly recommend Todoist for both the casual or power user alike.
Best In The App Store
by Donteee5 on 2016/01/10 23:52
This app made me switch over from Evernote. Very easy to use, pleasant interface, and features that aren't complicated. A great productivity tool.
Helps me not get overwhelmed with life
by AugustAngel on 2016/01/10 05:15
This is by far the best to do/list making app I've ever used, and it's literally saving my life by reducing my stress. There are a few things I see here and there that I wish were different. I had one issue where a completed task reared its ugly head and I had put in notes for it, but once it's completed, you can only see the title. When you have to select a color, you have to remember which shade (of blue - there are a few!) to set it as instead of showing the colors and what are already set to those colors or the colors that don't have anything set to them. The last update added some great functions. Love this app. ETA: So happy they added a recurring function!
Terrific app for staying on top of everything
by Getting and staying organized! on 2016/01/10 04:35
Integration with basically most platforms allows for constant use which is essential for any system of to do lists.
Todoist is awesome!
by GreenMachine_Power on 2016/01/09 21:47
The ways it can be used and accessed from almost anywhere is ridiculously awesome. Great job guys. Keep it up.
Free is lacking & paid is overpriced
by TimDawgz on 2016/01/09 13:28
The free version of this app is terrible. It does nothing that a basic task list should do. Reminders are a premium feature? Really!? Reminders!? Every app on the App Store wants to notify (i.e. "remind") you about a million different things. The built in iOS task manager, which integrates with Outlook, has reminders. That's such a basic feature to make "premium". Speaking of which, the premium upgrade is ridiculously overpriced. Like comically overpriced. You want $30/yr so I can get reminders and some pretty colors for themes that I'll never use? Oh I know, I get labels and other junk. I'd gladly do premium if it weren't so ridiculously overpriced. You guys are asking for more than what I paid online file storage & sync for 250gb of space. You think this app is doing something more than that? Nope. I go premium on many of my apps but the value has to justify the cost and in this case the two do not balance. Not even close. 👎
Best to do list app

Task List Review
by Rothhouse on 2016/01/07 17:33
Have been using this app for more than a year now and continue to find more was to enjoy its functionality. The sharing feature is one of my favorites. The settings and options are pretty straight forward even in the free version.
It's a great app. But it's also a system.
by JimV on 2016/01/07 05:46
Been using it for a couple of months and the ubiquity of the app on all platforms, browser and Outlook add ins make this usable through convenience. Also. I use the delegate capability with my assistant which works quite well.
Great Task Manager

Excellent Tool
by KBogan on 2016/01/07 02:59
Great for keeping track of what needs to get done while I'm on the go. Dunno if I'm gonna spring for the bonus features yet, which would be helpful, but the free use is still outstanding.
Nice but..
by Ayeshah_Rose_Ifran on 2016/01/07 01:31
It's a nice app to get your to do list organized. This app wasn't for me. I didn't find nothingness special about it. It does work and it is easy to use. It's just not for me.
Amazing!
by drewwilkerson on 2016/01/06 06:43
Very helpful. Highly recommended.
It's great!
by JagorBom on 2016/01/06 03:03
Stop looking through the App Store for the best app to get your overwhelming workload organized, you've found the best app. If you use the app in a disciplined way, meaning you use it for ALL your tasks and you keep up with list maintenance on a routine basis (twice daily for me) it WILL make your life better. With task management you get out what you put in. The goal of the tool should be to get out of the way as quickly as possible, and this one does just that. I'd give it more stars if there were more to give!
YES
by THEmrReynolds on 2016/01/05 03:52
Best thing I've done with my life since that time I never signed up for Facebook. I don't want to say life-changing because that would be...inadequate. Todoist is experience-shifting. Italics. It has brought order and, dare I say, meaning to my once scattered, wasted and, dare I say, meaningless existence. If you value the fate of humanity, nay, the Galaxy, NAY, HUMANITY, you will begin using Todoist immediately. You're welcome.
Premium upgrade charges you but...
by Noworky3740 on 2016/01/05 02:33
The app (and website) will deny you access to premium features, despite being charged. Now I need a task to remind me to open a support case but I can't set a reminder because I'm not premium, or am I?
Perfect

by TMorss on 2016/01/01 16:31
I have been using Todoist for over a year. After showing my boss how I use it we have implemented it for the entire company. If you really want to get things done, this platform is it.
Does not work with Watch OS 2 complications.
by Porter Wilson on 2016/01/01 14:15
UPDATE: Doesn't work for complications on the watch. Needs that for five stars. I recently broke up with my long time task manager to use this. I test out almost everyone I see. Great features here. Easy to use. Solid on iOS. Very easy to share projects and assign tasks. UPDATE: I've been using his for quite a while now and I love it more than when I first started. New iOS update is perfect. Use it all day every day.
Great app
by Paywea on 2015/12/31 14:13
A little buggy in the cross-device functionality, but overall very easy to use.
Just right
by C-Wave on 2015/12/29 04:37
Not too busy, not roo stripped down. Just right.
Not quite timeful but
by Sebaz88 on 2015/12/28 15:23
I love timeful and that's the app that I used and love it. I think this app is the a solid app and the best thing is that is available anywhere. Get the premium version for free in app sumo
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.
Very well designed.
by BereanTRB on 2015/04/15 20:44
One of my primary reasons for using a smart phone is for project and task management. I have used some other apps that functioned pretty well, but Todoist is the best I've used so far. First, a good task management app has to let me easily set up and organize multistep projects but also allow me to enter something simple like "call Bruce" without multiple screens, clicks, or swipes. Another important thing for me is effective and flexible management of recurring tasks. For example, things like the second Saturday of each month or 30 days after I've completed a task. Also, I need a good desktop/laptop interface for entering longer projects. Todoist gives me all of this plus some great extras. The variety of other platforms is nice. The color-coded graphs in Karma are a convenient way to see how I spent my time (the colors on the graph correspond to the color codes on your projects). But the final features that really make Todoist shine for me are the flexibility and power of labels and filters. These give me a lot of power and flexibility to shape and use Todoist my own way. All of this comes together to make Todoist the most powerful yet elegant task management app I've used so far.
The Perfect App for Time-Management
by A Former Procrastinator on 2015/04/07 16:24
The latest update to Todoist on iOS has really improved the experience of using the app. Creating and deleting tasks are no hassle, and now it takes seconds to assign a parent task to the created task. Overall, this app has really improved my ability to prioritize. I am able to see any tasks that I might have for the upcoming week, as well as the tasks that I need to complete simply by viewing the app from the home screen. What initially drew me to this app was its ability to create subtasks, and subtasks to the subtasks, a feature that is often not included in other task-management apps. Therefore, I am able to easily separate huge projects into simpler components. Even without upgrading the app, one can experience all of the benefits of having Todoist. My only complaint, which is relatively minor, is that there is no way to view tasks that do not need to completed in a week (so viewing a month's worth of tasks, or seeing a specific day months later, is impossible). As I mentioned, this is not an urgent complaint, and should not degrade from the experience. This app would benefit those with busy schedules or procrastinators.
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.
Mixed feelings in general
by Shopping2 on 2015/04/02 01:07
I like the premise of Todoist and I rely on their many integrations but I have to say their natural language date management was a real disaster when compared to Remember the Milk. Some features, such as creating filters by project using the "p:" syntax have existed on desktop but NEVER worked on mobile. We're talking about something I've waited for almost a year now. With this latest update, the recurrence syntax for "after 1 day" is broken. I think testing for recurrences "every, each, after" should be part of your automation suite. What's going on here? I can't use the iOS app at all now and need to use the web product. When I posted a note in the support form, I got no feedback. The product does many things well, but I question if as a customer I'm being listened to and as someone who is in the industry and is a stickler for quality - I'm disappointed by the regressions I see in their native clients. For the record, I don't give his feedback arbitrarily - I have accumulated more than 14,000 points so hopefully it shows my feedback comes with some thought for whoever on the team might read this.
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.
One of the Best
by LoveNewEngland on 2015/09/19 11:13
I have been using Todoist after using a host of other productivity apps, and find this to be one of the best. The apps simplicity keeps me motivated to use it, it's flexibility allows me to see my tasks any way I choose, for the day, by project, by label and the email reminders have saved me on more than one occasion. I can easily adopt the GTD management process or my own modified version if I choose, and there is plenty of integration support with the email tools I use. Plus the price of premium is affordable give how some alternative apps have gone overboard in charging for features that I'd never use. The free version of Todoist is loaded with a good amount of features so for some people the premium subscription may not be required. Most importantly I have complete visibility into what I need to get done across multiple platforms (mobile, web) and Todoist keeps it simple enough to motivate me to use it every day.
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.
One of the best but still have a few wishes...
by Hotfish2012 on 2015/07/23 17:29
I've tried all sorts of to do list methods and apps. I think the GTD principles are the gold standard. Applying them in different apps is what makes a difference for me. The ease of inputting, updating, rearranging ends up determining how much I use the system. Todoist does a fine job. There are a few improvements that I wish would be made -or perhaps they exist but I have not figured out how to use them, which itself speaks to the need to clarify instructions. First, when I think of a project I need to complete, I start to list all of the steps t need to complete it, often not in proper sequence. The ability to tuck the steps under the project is easy enough but I haven't found the way to resequence the sub steps Also I haven't found how to link a task with an Evernote note. I suppose I need to make a project of figuring those things out, but really should not have to. All in all, this is a really terrific app nonetheless.
Terrific, A Must for Me Now
by jtk00 on 2016/01/16 04:06
I was an avid Omnifocus user for over a year. However, I got to the point where I felt I spent too much time tinkering with it and changing things rather than just getting tasks done. Don't get me wrong, Omnifocus is amazing. But I wanted something more simple, with quicker task entry, yet still robust options when I need it. I checked out all the leading task managers and Todoist seemed to fit what I was looking for. Plus it looked like a minimalistic, gorgeous UI. After spending a few days using it I upgraded to the pro version and haven't looked back. That was 2 months ago and I use it constantly. I run my entire life out of Todoist. It has tags, custom folders, sub-folders, theme choices, natural language entry ... everything I need and it's simply a joy to use. The natural language entry is pure genius and means I can fly through entries. I can't say enough good things about it. Absolutely love it!
This is the app that works for me
by Decapede on 2015/09/24 05:56
I tried Things, OmniFocus, and The Hit List, none of which have been able to deliver the kind of results as Todoist has. Or rather, I haven't been able to achieve the same results with those apps, even though they are more comprehensive and "powerful" in some ways. Perhaps it was the steep learning curve. Todoist allowed me to begin at s very intuitive place, the to-do list, and then expand into labels, contexts, projects, etc. The functionality is simple and increases in complexity as the user increases in skill; simply put, those other apps were too much too soon. Not to say those won't work, they very well might, it depends what your workflow looks like. Big deal breaker for me was the inability to use OmniFocus on my work computer, which is Windows. Same goes with Things. Cross-platform syncing is crucial for me, and Todoist is seamless. $29/yr. for premium is totally worth it.
Got to give it 5 because it's the best out there, but...
by AAntonow on 2015/05/19 12:49
This is absolutely the best to do software I have seen so far, I have seen many. I've been using Apigo todo list before for three years and it stunk the basic functions but its operation felt like pulling teeth, had bugs, and it's synchronization was flaky. This one works like a dream, synchronizes over multiple platforms perfectly, is designed a beautifully and logically. Yet it is still missing couple of features that you would think they'd figure out over the length of the company's existence: when you sorted by label it doesn't do secondary sorting the project therefore if you are working on the tests that belong to single label you may have to jump from project to project to be able to concentrate on one – this is silly. So, it doesn't have a simple email this list function, although you can give access to anybody for free.
Sync-O'licious
by BeezerDude on 2015/06/28 21:42
Any browser, any device, simple UI, essential feature set for a task manager. Good features for light project management, even for teams, but not truly a project management software solution as such, not yet anyway. I'm not looking for a beefy PM solution so works extremely well for my personal and even work related projects (my work projects are self managed and don't require budget tracking or Gantt charts). I use Todoist with Sunrise Calendar and am very happy. I upgraded to paid version to get templates and other enhanced features. 5 stars for overall execution and current version feature set, less one star for cost. In my opinion, Todoist could gain more subscribers by adding a mid-tier price for the full task related feature set sans file attachment and charge $15/yr. Charge the $25/yr price for file attachment, maybe storage and third party storage retrieval integration as well as deeper current and future PM features. Those are great features to have and build out, but not necessary for all task management users. I've spent way too much time comparing and experimenting with task and task/calendar combos--probably every one in the App Store. Don't bother with the dairy-themed products and folio UI stuff. Those were the old days. Todoist and Sunrise are an unbeatable and inexpensive (totally worth supporting) combo that work beautifully on any device. A must for multiple and cross-platform users.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Finally!
by CherLC on 2015/04/15 17:28
Since I got my iPhone four months ago I have searched through the to do list apps every couple weeks to research without having found the right one. This is the first one I have found that replaces paper for me! I am very pleased with the common language scheduling to be able to have every Tuesday or even 'today and tomorrow and then every Saturday' for a task is great! Rescheduling is a breeze and editing as well. Any task can have sub tasks as well to help visually organize. I wish that the update for the app wasn't $29 ANNUALLY. $29 is a lot for an app in the first place, much less each year... That being said, I would have gladly invested $5 for this free version... Even up to $10 if it came with the tasks-completed memory portion and more color schemes. Thanks for making a paper free app I can use comprehensively and with ease!
My Favorite App!
by andrwstw on 2015/07/04 02:34
I am a university professor, and I never seem to have enough time in the day between research, teaching, and service. Todoist is the best task manager app that I've used, and it's the easiest and most elegant solution for me. I keep all of my tasks organized and can see what I need to do every day. I love the new swiping gestures to complete or reschedule tasks. The new themes and animations look super polished, clean, and make using the app super easy and fast. Students often talk to me after class, and if I can't answer a question immediately, I can quickly add these notes to the app and return to them later. I have become more productive and responsive to my students, colleagues, and collaborators requests and tasks. I don't know how I functioned before this app, but I am so happy I have it now to manage my endless tasks and responsibilities.
Vs Omnifocus; and newest updated is great
by richjns on 2015/04/04 06:04
The newest update allows batch editing, which lacked in the mobile app in the past and was my biggest complaint. I have used Omnifocus and Wunderlist for several months at a time in the past as I found my way to Todoist. In the end, this one is the best for my purposes. Having projects and day-to-day checklists that you can custom sort (instead of having to sort by due time in Omnifocus) is great. You can link Google Drive (or Dropbox) documents to a checklist item/project and then changes made to the file on any device are synced to the cloud. This is in contrast to my biggest complaint with Omnifocus -- it would attach the file and you could access it on all devices, but making changes and then re-uploading the file was a tedious process. Overall this is a fantastic application.
Simple, powerful, and elegant!
by iMacgyver74 on 2015/08/01 16:06
The GTD methodology by David Allen has really worked well for me over the years. I previously used OmniFocus on my Mac and iPhone, but the synchronization wasn’t reliable anymore and the interface became clumsier with each version release. I just started using Todoist two weeks ago and absolutely love it so far! It has all the features I like/wanted in a GTD task manager, and none of the extraneous bells and whistles that most apps tend to add. The synchronization is instant, seamless, and reliable. The developers did a truly wonderful job creating a great user experience for both desktop and mobile that’s practical, helpful, and efficient to use every day. The annual price for the premium version is well worth it if you need a serious task manager you can depend on. Simple, powerful, and elegant sums it up for me!
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.
Excellent for motivation
by MStephens1234 on 2015/03/25 19:57
I'm slowly having my palm pilot pried out my hands and this app is helping with that. Things I love: - the ability to focus just on today's tasks - the ability to add labels and view all tasks with those labels - the ability to create separate projects and include (or not) those in with main tasks - the extreme flexibility of how due dates can be input. It can be simple, or It can get pretty complicated. (That's almost like programming) - the tracking of completed tasks. They don't just disappear forever, they go to a karma done list where I can sit and exult over all I got done. - the ability to reorder tasks by dragging them to reflect the order I anticipate doing them. - the ability to create three levels of sub tasks in projects. Things I don't care for: - setting priority on a task makes it rise to the top and stay there. I understand why, but I'd still like to be able to move it around. - i can't see tasks I've set for days farther ahead than 7. I can easily forget I put them in and put them in multiple times. - I can't see how to add notes to tasks. As you can see, these are small quibbles, so I'm mostly quite satisfied with this app. If my productivity for the year matches my productivity over the first three days I've had it, it will $28 well spent.
Todoist - It is the system!!
by Rate Mint on 2015/11/21 14:25
I have tried several systems for managing my projects and tasks and Todoist is the system that I find most helpful. The number one biggest reason is the Microsoft Outlook extension that allows mw to convert emails to tasks and the tasks are linked to the email. Most of my tasks arrive as emails. With Todoist, I convert these emails to tasks quickly and easily. The second reason I find Todoist productive is the wide range of platforms on which Todoist is available. I use Todoist on my iPhone, my iPad, Windows, Outlook.... I can organize tasks by projects and view the tasks by due date or project. Because I use it on every platform I have, I can access everywhere. As someone said, the best task/project manager is the one you use regularly. I use it everyday and learn to do more with it.
Great Task Manager
by KingRichard26 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!
A few years makes a big difference!
by ImpressedByAfterYou on 2015/04/27 15:36
Tried todoist a few years back when it was web only. I liked the clean look and simplicity of it back then but it was a bit limited as far as functionality. I decided to try it again about a month ago and wow! I'm now actively using it in iPad, iPhone, my Mac, and occasionally on the web. Wherever I am, I'm able to quickly look up my projects and tasks or add new ones. So far everything stays in sync beautifully. When I need to add attachments, I can. If I need to turn a task into a project or a project into a subproject of another subproject, I just drag and drop... And voilá! Really could be much easier to use and I have to say, the product has come a long way in the past few years! Keep up the good work guys!
Great For Collaborative Task Lists

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.
Great Wunderlist Replacement
by SVKinAZ on 2015/06/13 18:15
If you’re looking for a new task manager now that Microsoft has acquired Wunderlist, Todoist is it. Not only does it match Wunderlist feature to feature, it also bests Wunderlist’s features in some ways. For example, Todoist’s handling of labels is much better than that of Wunderlist. Cross-platform support is outstanding. I particularly like the e-mail plug-ins for Outlook, Gmail, Postbox, and more. For those needing the Pro version, the cost of Todoist Pro is much cheaper than Wunderlist Pro. My only complaint would be that Todoist keeps more features as part of the Pro upgrade than Wunderlist, but since I’m a Pro user anyway, it doesn’t bother me. Most users won’t need those features. The app’s design is simple, efficient, and effective. Highly recommended.
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.
Almost perfect
by MiRa : ) on 2015/06/16 11:04
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. Until last month, I was 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, and need to reschedule or reprioritize. My dreams were realized in the release of Version 10 for iOS. Bulk changes are now easy. And it is also easy to add tasks between other tasks by "pinching" open a spot in a list, and to indent tasks as subtasks. Todoist is so easy to use that it integrates seamlessly into life on the go or in the office.
No calendar view, but easy to use on many devices
by Surfer806 on 2015/03/02 08:17
My biggest gripe with this is that there isn't a full calendar view. It would be really nice to have a month-long or week-long view to visualize what I have due when. Also REALLY wish there was a "schedule for later" feature so tasks that aren't due immediately would just disappear until later and my to do lists would be less cluttered. I'm an executive assistant so I have 8 million pending tasks at all times and not all are immediate. The main reason I do like and use this app every day is that I can seamlessly use it on my iPad, iPhone, and on the web from anywhere. Super super helpful and love that they don't charge for each device like some other apps do. Also upgrading for the reminders and notes was really worth it for me
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.
Excellent Task App and Amazing!
by BEEEFSTAA on 2015/09/23 15:50
Not only are you synced up everywhere Super easy and intuitive task adding The location reminders are the BEST. Let's you Set up your own system of lists. Mine is Master todo list. All those items have no dates, they just need to get done. They all apply to a specific project with a specific due date. Every single item in master list advances those projects. Second list is "waiting on", although do to the multiple inboxes setting in gmail, I might scratch this. The title is self explanatory Third list, someday/maybe This is what lets me capture the storm of of random insights, plans, and ideas for later consideration. Empty out into master lists or the trash. This system helps you walk around confidently and with an empty and open aware brain thats able to shift to intense focus on cue cuz it's not preoccupied; and simultaneously let's you be receptive to those grand ideas and plans your unconscious brain constantly produces. Remember if you don't actually DO anything with the unimaginable steam of original ideas that come to you everyday, then your brain will know better than to waste your consciousness with any.
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.
Free is lacking & paid is overpriced
by TimDawgz on 2016/01/09 13:28
The free version of this app is terrible. It does nothing that a basic task list should do. Reminders are a premium feature? Really!? Reminders!? Every app on the App Store wants to notify (i.e. "remind") you about a million different things. The built in iOS task manager, which integrates with Outlook, has reminders. That's such a basic feature to make "premium". Speaking of which, the premium upgrade is ridiculously overpriced. Like comically overpriced. You want $30/yr so I can get reminders and some pretty colors for themes that I'll never use? Oh I know, I get labels and other junk. I'd gladly do premium if it weren't so ridiculously overpriced. You guys are asking for more than what I paid online file storage & sync for 250gb of space. You think this app is doing something more than that? Nope. I go premium on many of my apps but the value has to justify the cost and in this case the two do not balance. Not even close. 👎
Best User Friendly Tool to Learn Collaborative Project Management
by darmok on 2015/05/09 16:41
Pros • Integration with Sunrise calendar app makes it easy to see your complete appointment and task load for a time period so you can avoid overloading • Ease of use simplifies training and increases retention of users • Basic service allows users to learn benefits of collaborative project management, so they can appreciate why the premium option is so worthwhile • Projects, Sub-projects, Tasks and Task Dependency is included with basic service. • Premium includes Custom Filters, Notes, Attachments, Search, and Project Templates Cons • Missing Update view. As changes to tasks are made, it's important to have one place were you can see that history. Something like a social media news stream, but for project and task activity like comments and changes made. The next best service with a strong basic package that helps you show people the value, before paying for premium service is Azendoo. Their app is getting better, but they do not currently allow you to resort tasks with mobile app, only via the web browser. Their interface is also not as clean or user friendly. Todoist it is the best value in collaborative task management.
Clean, consistent, and cross platform
by huwe on 2015/05/30 02:03
I've used paid versions of Omnifocus, Things, ToDo, and several others I don't recall. It's a highly personal tool so the only way I know to do it is get one and live with it for a while and see if you can make it fit your style. Todoist does that for me. I'm mainly in the Apple ecosystem, but still have to use other os's and the web version works great. I do like the native apps for my mac & iPhone, but web access is nice when I'm in another environment. The Zapier integration with Evernote is awesome and I really like their implementation for printing hard copies when I need to. Is it perfect - no, but none of them are. Todoist has a pleasant interface and can be bent to my work style so I'm very happy with it.
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.
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.
Finally: Sub Folders in Easy To Use To Do Program
by Hlenow on 2015/06/11 19:07
I have used them all, Omni Focus, Things, and all the rest. For me, the ability to easily build sub folders in To Doist is the thing that got me. I find adding tasks is easy, giving them all the info needed is easy and working with the existing lists just intuitive and easy and complete. I am a lawyer trying to keep track of the many tasks for each of my clients and the many projects for each client. This is the best program for me because of its intuitive interface and deep feature set. I tried hard to love OMni focus, but it just didn't work simply enough for me. Things won't, as a matter of principle, allow sub folders.
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!
Best task manager EVER!!
by dragonfly09 on 2015/05/16 16:54
I have used almost ALL of them and been disappointed. This is the first one that I would ever consider paying the full price for. I can write multiple projects, daily and weekly checklists, sub-projects, invite collaborators and manage everything from my phone and desktop integrated with Outlook. Best of all the calendar feature allows you to QUICKLY mark something as today, tomorrow or next week and have a list of items from every project due "today", "tomorrow" and the "next 7 days" show up in their own lists - something maddeningly missing from other task managers. I will be using this product until the day I die. Thanks SO MUCH for creating it.
Easy, intuitive, effective
by MNK94025 on 2015/04/20 15:44
I was skeptical of any to do list app as the act of writing, and the thought time spent crafting my lists helps me process the bigger picture that individual tasks are supporting... But I'm really impressed with how this app has supported the creative-thinking aspects of my time management. Simple yet effective. The ability to easily reorder tasks and prioritize is great. Using it is very intuitive. Only wish there was an easy way to print all open tasks (rather than printing one category at a time ) as I really like having a hard copy of the big picture to muse over. I'm sure I will use this more and more over time and take advantage of all its functionality.
Oh So Helpful
by sallem5 on 2016/01/16 04:17
I've been using Todoist for years, and I love it. Sure, it's not perfect---like another review mentioned, there's no tier system when looking at the today view, so visually it can throw you off. To be fair, that's not an app issue, that's a Todoist issue. The only thing were the web-based Todoist does better than the phone app is in general searching. I literally didn't think for months that the app allowed you to search for tasks until I accidentally stumbled across it. Even with those issues, Todoist still gets 5 stars. The app actually works better when reassigning a task due date or marking complete, mainly because of being able to swipe on your phone.
Loving it so far & motivates me to be more productive
by cupofjoe108 on 2016/01/16 20:10
I was looking for a to do list app that I could use across multiple devices. Researching a few different tech sites lead me to Todoist. I immediately bought Premium seeing there is a 30-day refund guarantee. After using a week, the app has accomplished the bare minimum I was looking for - a to-do list across devices, and then-some. It has just enough organization features (scheduling, notifications, labels) but not overwhelming. Plus their gamification feature "Karma" which gives points for completing tasks is making me more motivated to keep better track of all my tasks in Todoist and helps make me stay proactive in being productive.
