Excellent blend of simple power
by Amescreative on 2015/04/27 18:31
The perfect blend of simplicity and power and works great for our whole marketing team. We've been using it for 4 months now.
Great Cross-Platform To do App
by Rojak on 2015/04/27 15:58
Todoist got it right with this app. I needed a todo list that I could access and/or update from any pc or mobile device. It works beautifully on my desktop at home & office, my laptop on the road, an iPad mini and both my iPhone 6 and Note 3. Try for free and decide if it works for you. :)
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!
Excellent & Productive
by BlessedA on 2015/04/27 06:12
Truly helpful to organize all the many to-do's in life. Love the categories.... easy to put my mind at ease, while having everything in one place. Better than having those scraps of paper lay around everywhere...
Unable to get Windows Desktop App to work

Fix suggested by tech support failed to correct the issue. Too bad. It looks like a good app. It's been deleted
Fantastic app for helping you Get Things Done
by garrethb on 2015/04/26 23:55
Todoist is a great product for helping you track and accomplish your to-do's. I researched and experimented with a few todo type apps before I finally settled on this one. Along the way I discovered David Allen's Getting Things Done. It's a simple process for helping you organize and get through your todos. Google it if you don't know about it. Todoist supports this process nicely. The desktop product also nicely integrates with GMail so I can get my email box down to zero. The iPhone app is very well designed. All n all I'd have no problem recommending this app.
Great system
by Farmerjohnny on 2015/04/26 21:47
A great system, leading all others in simplicity while allowing work to be tracked and accomplished. 5 stars.
I depend on it
by Jodgeous on 2015/04/26 20:50
Have been thru a slew of task mgt apps and this one works best for me. Excellent cross-platform support and super easy to use.
Great task management app
by Rick the potter on 2015/04/26 19:02
I use it every day. I like the fact that it runs on so many platforms. Throughout the day I shift from my iPad to Outlook or my Chrome web browser, and everything syncs perfectly.
Solid app
by DisappointedSlackTryer on 2015/04/26 18:28
Multi-platform compatibility is fantastic. Still getting a hang of the app but I'm cautiously optimistic.
What I've been looking for!
by PaulRichardWossidlo on 2015/04/26 17:53
I switched over to Todoist after using another list manager. This is the best one yet! I actually got excited when I started to use this. Lots of power, yet easy to use, and cross platform to boot. I can use it for something simple like a grocery list, and at the same time use the templates feature to create a standard set of tasks for a project. I'm a photographer, so for a wedding (for example) there are standard tasks that need to be done before, during, and after the wedding. The plates are the perfect solution for that.
Needs Apple Watch Support!
by SMJ007 on 2015/04/26 17:06
This is a really great app, well designed and visually stunning! However, I know it's early, but several other Productivity Task Apps now have Apple Watch support and it's time for this App to follow suit....PLEASE!
Runs my life very well!
by ramirezjp on 2015/04/26 14:06
Super easy to use. Seamless interface across all platforms. Push notifications, recurring tasks, etc. it's all great and extremely well designed. No complaints at all.
Great App for Every Day Tasks
by boylanjones on 2015/04/26 13:20
This is a nicely designed app for every day sort of tasks. I'm trying to figure out how to use it for large projects, but I'm not sure how to do that. I think something like Microsoft Project would be best for that.
Awesome!
by Jkjkmeyer on 2015/04/26 00:43
One of my go to apps. I could not run my department without it and each version keeps getting better.
Free version does almost all I need
by jiraffe on 2015/04/25 23:49
I've tried other free task managers, and they fell short in either features or usability. Todoist easily lets me categorize, prioritize, and break down into sub-tasks. I just wish I could get reminders without having to pay for all the other premium features. A little more granularity in premium features would be nice.
Almost perfect
by MiRa : ) on 2015/04/25 23:37
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.
Excellent App
by Bakerent on 2015/04/25 23:16
Few issues, great platform -agnostic app. I also like the integration with Sunrise calendar.
Powerful App
by Teltoy on 2015/04/25 18:56
Todoist has brought our team to a whole new level of communication and production. Just need more than 200 open task.
Solid
by dr.hughes on 2015/04/25 18:04
No one app is perfect for everyone - but ToDoist comes closest in my opinion. I have used many, my previous was Wunderlist, but this one works better for me. The premium version is necessary for the best functionality. Love that it integrates with CloudMagic to directly save emails as tasks.
LOVE
by Aslfkfneb on 2015/04/25 15:19
I love todoist so much. It has really helped me stay on top of everything. The app and website are both very nice to use.
Love this app!
by DericCain on 2015/04/25 11:45
This is the best app for tracking tasks and projects and I have used many. I love the new interface and integration with Google Drive.
No surprises, nice touches
by Rick-designer-writer on 2015/04/25 03:04
Unlike some other todo apps that hide your tasks from view in sometimes weird and unnatural ways, todoist shows you what you entered and lets you rearrange it as you like. I make "projects" for my various areas of work, then put tasks into each project. For review, I step thru each of the projects. Pretty painless and no mystery
Great way to see where your time goes
by The Henkenator on 2015/04/25 01:52
Flawless interface. Integrating this app with a robust firm time-keeping/billing system would make it unstoppable.
Very intuitive and practical tool!
by Ncdesigns on 2015/04/25 01:47
I've been using Todoist for more than a year, and everything gets entered as a task. No paper waste, and I don't have to remember a thing because of the notifications and daily emails. I feel totally equipped for GTD.
It does what the others promised...
by Hakiman33 on 2015/04/24 23:46
Don't waste your time... This is perfection, pure and simple...it will do its job ...and that job is getting the things you need to do done...and with a sense of style too!
Me of the best todo lists I've ever used!
by markq007 on 2015/04/24 19:12
I've been looking around for a way to capture all my todo items for personal, work, and events that i coordinate. I've tried a number of things from pen and paper to Evernote to other apps. Non of which met my needs: - ability to group, tag, categorize tasks - easy to use - easy sync form phone to pc to Mac - quick to add in a task The inbox feature is brilliant! Key board short cuts all me to easily add tasks to the inbox. Throughout the day I check the inbox, just like I would check my mail, review the items and either complete the task or prioritize and file it under certain project. The ability to tag tasks, place them into project buckets, and create different search filters , Makes it easy to organize all the tasks. I feel so much more productive. After using the free version for a couple days, I decided to buy a one-year subscription. Awesome product!
Fix Widget
by Heycodyson on 2015/04/24 17:04
Widget hardly ever updates properly. Almost always shows nothing to do yet my inbox will have several items
Good design

Great
Deleted it
by Geli Gel on 2015/04/24 07:43
Nicely designed. I like the appearance. The first thing I wanted to do was add alarms to my tasks and that's a premium feature.
Great list.
by TLBeck on 2015/04/24 05:15
It shares great across platforms and sync's super fast.
The best of the to do apps

There's definitely things it could fix but right now it's the best out there
Perfect

This app is perfect because you can sync your task between your windows computer and phone with ease

Good app
If there were a negative review . . .
by DTeeters on 2015/04/23 17:50
This app is useless and does nothing to replace the regular calendar feature on my iPhone. It's a waste of space on my phone.
Life organized
by Edurastogi on 2015/04/23 14:46
Very intuitive UI.
Runs My Agency
by mooce on 2015/04/23 14:16
We run my entire social media agency using this app. It's excellent. And having it on desktop and mobile is key because we work 50% on our phones.
Keeps nagging me to rate
by Brad_1231455 on 2015/04/23 13:19
One star because it keeps asking me to write an app store review even after I say no thanks.
A MUST HAVE game changer App!

A must have for anyone who wants to regain control of their life, reach their goals and stay sane!

I like using the app, but I find it to be slow when I cross off repeating daily tasks.

by So far so goody on 2015/04/22 20:05
I was all about spirngpad (RIP) I bounced around and this was this felt most natural for me. I love the gmail integration. If only it was able to organize as tiles...
Almost there
by LordZardeck on 2015/04/22 16:54
Great app, could use a few more features such as parent projects showing child products like the desktop version does. Also, has a bug where you can't share a parent project and have all child projects inherently shared.
So easy to use!!
by Akepleigh on 2015/04/22 16:17
It's excellent. Everything you could want a list making app!
I use it to manage my daily tasks
by MLengerich on 2015/04/22 14:01
It's been awesome app. My team we all use it to manage our daily tasks and to check what everybody is doing. I didn't got the premium because I didn't find enough value on the premium version. You have to develop something significantly better for me to keep paying premium.
Excellent
by Adagio47 on 2015/04/22 05:42
Used it for one week and loved it so much I upgraded to pro. It's already having a huge impact on my ability to manage today's multi-tasking multi-project world. Thanks todoist!
It's pretty great

A review
by D-Unit on 2015/04/22 02:10
I write reviews for two reasons only. Either I am so angry and frustrated that I bought a terrible app and I want everyone to know so that they may avoid the error I made or I find an app so perfect that I want to let everyone know and think the creators of the app would benefit from a good review. So this is the second one. Todoist is perfect. It will get you motivated to start doing s***. So download this app and start doing s***! There's your motto, todoist. What too PG-13?
Simple but Stellar
by Free to be Sick on 2015/04/22 01:06
Love this app because it's simple, easy to use, intuitive, and best of all, already organized for you!
Best To-Do List App
by Pilothiker on 2015/04/21 23:31
This app has been my saving grace with staying on top of things at work. With its integration with CloudMagic email I can add everything. I can also share lists with my family for all sorts of things including groceries.
Boosting my productivity big time!
by Sylrb on 2015/04/21 20:51
And I used skillshare's class on "getting things done like a boss" to show me how to make the most of todoist. Love it!
Great!

Todoist is really my all-time favorite app. I don't lie awake thinking of all of the things I need to do tomorrow anymore. I love the integration with all of my different systems and devices, the ability to set projects and categorize my tasks, and the ability to share task categories with my wife. Really, though, I just love checking things off.
Great version
by Jbrown95 on 2015/04/20 20:51
The app has been given a lot of attention and consistently gets refined every month. Love the app. Use it for all my personal to-do's!
A Senior Citizens must have app
by JohnM57 on 2015/04/20 20:35
As a person who needs reminders to get things done, this app is one I could not live without. We know we need to remain physically active and this app helps me by reminding me what needs to be done. No matter how large or small the task, this app is most helpful. Working on Apple and Google platforms makes this app even more useful. If you're looking for a simple and effective reminder app be sure to give this one a try. This app has become even better with the latest updates.
Nice, but flawed
by HolyDuck on 2015/04/20 17:44
I really like the clean design and the fact that the service is very cross platform, it is a nice implementation of GTD and it is my weapon of choice right now - but it certainly has it's flaws as well. I like the basic organization and the labels, priorities and drag-and-drop-functions, but especially subtasks are handled poorly. It's a complete hassle to add subtasks, fx. Also, I'd love a lot more (intuitive) keyboard shortcuts. And there are a couple of features I still miss - fx the possibility of adding duration to a task, and an easy way to undo.
Best Todo List Out There
by Tom Monk on 2015/04/20 17:05
I needed a todo list that integrated with Zapier, Evernote, and Fantastical. This fits the bill. I would recommend it to anyone.
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.
LOVE todoist
by AGismynickname1287 on 2015/04/20 15:26
If you're obsessing over a productivity tool, just commit to this one. I have faithfully used it for about a year and it effectively facilitates a wide range of productivity methodologies including GTD. I suggest you pay for the upgraded version as well. It's fine without it, but if you have a job that requires you to be productive, you can afford the nominal cost of the upgrade and will reap the benefits.
Great, but annoying
by Glen Campbell on 2015/04/20 14:34
Really excellent to-do manager (I replaced OmniFocus with this) with one super annoying “feature.” It sends email notifications for each event, and there’s no way to turn them off via the app or the website. If they fix that, this will be a five-star app, but the emails, in essence, create EXTRA WORK for me, which is kind of what a to-do list manager is supposed to avoid.
Great
by Heyslick on 2015/04/20 13:14
I really like todoist, I used to use a paper planner, kept all of my tasks and notes. I have since started using Evernote for all of my daily note taking and todoist for all of my daily tasks. The thing I like about todoist is that my tasks don't get forgotten. They stay on my to do list until I do them. This is an awesome app.
Best, but needs add-one...
by Yogilyon on 2015/04/20 13:11
Hey everyone this really is a great app and I've tried around ten over past year. I love the simplicity of using chrome add-on and iPhone app that sync beautifully. My only suggestion to designers (hint hint) is to make it easier to add notes to the event when adding a new task; let it be easier to add a time into task; create a view by day with time; and a view by week with times so there is a visual calendar view; synchronize with iCal. Much more to finesse but still great. Contact me for details and happy to give feedback on next beta version. Thanks for simplifying my task manage and managing my mind!!
Best of the best!
by Dhallan on 2015/04/20 13:09
This is the BEST to do list out there. I have downloaded every possible to do list out there and I have been using 2 different to manage all areas of my life and to-doist changed all of that. Download now, you will not be disappointed!
Easy to use, helpful

I use it every day to record the things I need to do. Better than scraps of paper plus you can categorize your to dos. I have both short and long term tasks and use the app every day. Since installing it I rarely forget tasks.
Great app

He buscado hace mucho una buena aplicación de seguimiento de tareas. Todoist es la más completa para lo que yo necesito.
Awesome app!
by TFJ_Vinny on 2015/04/19 18:41
This app has helped me tremendously. The reminders that are sent via text are always convenient reminders right when I need them. Not sure if there's anything better out there partly because I haven't looked due to the fact this app has fixed the issue I was experience before! Highly recommended
Great app and design. Premium features: meh
by DankDankness on 2015/04/19 18:15
Awesome app and design. I use it every day. I currently subscribe to the premium features but haven't gotten a lot of use out of them. YMMMV as I don't know if it's me or the features that just hasn't hit the next level.
I use it everyday - several times a day!

I wish they had more options in the free version. Plus, there needs to be a way to use numbers/digits in your reminders/tasks without Todoist removing them.
My favorite todo app
by mr.plimsoles on 2015/04/19 12:00
I have tried a bunch of todo apps, but todo its is by far my favorite. The user interface allows me to add and manage items effortlessly. The karma score somehow motivates me to continue getting things done. It's always a joy to use.
iOS update was excellent
by JysynA on 2015/04/19 01:41
New look and tools make this app even better!
Great app. Well done!
by Armstrong310 on 2015/04/19 01:40
Cool
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.
This is the app that works for me
by Decapede on 2015/04/07 15:38
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. I spent almost $200 on GTD tools before finding Todoist, do in my opinion, a seriously good value.
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.
Best task app ever, especially for ADHD
by twseal77 on 2014/08/31 16:01
I have ADD and I have been through a lot of apps and methods for trying to stay on task and remember stuff. This is by far the best app I have ever used... In fact so good that I normally don't write reviews, this is the first. It is very simple and quick to use, you van use it online on the web page on your PC with PC/mac app and on iPhone and iPad. I like the simplicity and ease of use. I like that I can add notes, attach files and keep categories for different things, like school, work, etc. So many apps and methods out there for ADD require a bunch of steps and processes and 'remember to remember' methods that don't work. If I could remember in the first place or keep my attention span long enough that might be ok, but I can't. This is the only app I have found that is simple and quick enough that I can pay attention and quickly add, update, and keep my life organized without being over complicated.
Works great, shareable, multi-platform, easy
by Kirk032167 on 2014/11/11 22:20
I have an iPad and an iPhone 6+. I'm not sure why everyone is complaining about this app. It works great. It syncs quickly. I can see it fine on my new phone. I find it easier to add items from my iPad, but that is because of the iPhone keyboard (which is certainly not the fault of this app). I can share my personal list with my spouse, and business todos with my business partner. We can assign tasks to one another. I add items from my iPad, then take my phone with me to the store if I am running errands. All synced and ready to complete. I also like the user rating. The more tasks you complete, the more experience your rating goes to (currently I'm a novice, but I am desperately seeking todos to increase my level :D). It does exactly what it advertises, which is help me keep track of and organize my todo lists. Great app. I would recommend it, and do.
Replaced so many other tools & Apps
by Dave Seville on 2014/11/20 04:44
After starting out as a trial customer for a short time I have been a premium customer for two years now. Your creativity is the only limitation as to what this program can do for you. This has replaced so many other apps and programs and paper methods that I was using I can't begin to list them all out. Just start using it right away on a simple basis then take some time in setting up how you want to use it and you'll be amazed what it can do. I have sections for business and personal and it's amazing how much more I get done and keep organized by using one premium app like this. I love that it is cross platformed and I can use it on my iPad, computer and iPhone and everything stays in sync. One of the best features I like is that I can have it email and or text me at certain times for tasks that I designate.
A flexible and feature-rich To Do app
by sloppyjack on 2013/09/06 00:44
I have recently come back to Todoist, after the recent updates. I love it. I left Remember the Milk. Why? There are a few things I need from a todo app: 1. Syncs with a good website 2. Simple 3. Flexible 4. Doesn't require a lot of thought to maintain Todoist ticks those requirements, with a pleasant to use experience. The website is great- it presents the most crucial information to you, adding tasks is a cinch, as is keeping as few or as many projects as you'd like. You can also add nifty colors to cue you. I have found that - even while applying GTD principles- I need to change my system occasionally to match my workload. Sometimes I have many folders to segregate tasks (and thinking) by project. Other times, I just want to keep my todos from getting forgotten. Todoist accommodates either. Easily. And, with a variety of views, the app and site allow you to keep the most important actionable info on front of you, when you need it. There is nothing over complicated here- no stars or next actions or whatnot. That means you can create you own system and it will work. And on the web you can drag and drop tasks and projects to reorder them (great) and set your own front page view (mind is P1 + next 7 days due). That could come to the app but I don't miss it.
Locks up after several updates
by To do list fanatic on 2014/07/28 09:45
I often need to reschedule tasks that I was unable to complete the previous day. As I go down the list reviewing each task and updating the due date the app will lock up. It is often making my changes but tasks don't visually move until I force the app the restart. It could be that this has been a long time issue but it is getting worse as we build up more list items. It has recently started to being unresponsive to any screen taps. It occasionally continues even after forcing the app to restart. If this continues we will need to look for a different solution. With that said it works great for keeping track of our family's very complex list of to do's. My husband, daughter, and I all use the app. One complaint with sharing projects is that it doesn't display them on the new shared user's screen the same. When it could be critical that the new invited user realize what project it is a part of.
No privacy, worthless offline
by GaryQual on 2014/04/28 02:15
As near as I can tell, all of your data is stored in the cloud on third-party serves, not even owned by the developer. The mere fact that the privacy policy is totally silent on the security of this data suggests that not only isn't it secure, so that both they and the unnamed third party can read your files, but the developer doesn't even appreciate the importance of maintaining the security of user data. Before any app can share data, it first has to create it on your own mobile device, so that you can use it. Simple, right? But if you install this app on an iPad without cellular, then get on the bus or subway to work, you're hosed. You can't even get started without logging in, and no network, no login. And what happens to your data if they go out of business? Backup to the close, and sharing with users are both great features. But for an app whose focus is personal data, if it doesn't first work reliably standalone, with no account creation required, it isn't worth trusting the developer with an e-mail address just to get started.
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 just-a-monkey on 2015/03/31 18:01
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.
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.
Great Task Manager
by Richard Garcia on 2014/12/10 00:26
I have been searching for an app that can manage all of my tasks and projects, and this task manager gets the job done. It is the one app that can be integrated with other platforms very well such as gmail or sunrise calendar. It works great on my Mac and iPhone and all of my tasks are in my Todoist no matter what device I use. Ever wish to take an email that you would need to get back to (perhaps because of a lengthy research or response needed,) well in Gmail, there is a button that you can add to your browser which can save your emails as tasks. How about that???!!! It is truly a great task manager and would recommend it for anyone who has a lot of stuff on their plates and wants to quickly and easily jot down a to-do or reminder that they can circle back to when completed.
Love this todo app!
by ahaef on 2014/05/25 21:19
Full disclosure: I did end up subscribing to the premium service, but that's also probably the best endorsement I can give. Love the clean, simple interface for using the lists and checking things off, but still with tons of options when creating or editing a task. It can be as straightforward or complex as you want to make it. The daily email snapshot with reminders of how many things you did, how many you have to do that day, and how many points you have will either keep you hooked or annoy you; if it's the latter, they're easily turned off. Sync is super-fast (one of my complaints with other todo apps) and has never lost one of my tasks. No shared lists and no location-based due dates means this isn't my only todo app, but it's the one I use for all of my tasks!
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.
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 2015/04/25 23:37
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.
Just Right? Maybe so.
by pcborup on 2014/07/16 23:27
For a long time I have floated in between Omni Focus, Things, and a couple of other apps for task management. Each have their strengths but also sufficient weaknesses that I felt a bit like the three bears story (i.e. this one is too much...this one is too little...) Todoist may be that "just right" middle ground. It is taking some getting used to but one large plus is that it is very consistent experience across all platforms that I am trying. That includes all Apple platforms as well as Web and Windows. That in itself is a big positive as one of my complaints about other apps has been inconsistent experience. Also need to note that the sync between all devices is lightning fast! So while my rating is still a work in process my initial feedback is 4 out of 5.
Well implemented task manager
by Brianthreedee on 2015/01/25 14:44
Being new to the use of task management, I have tried several different apps. My requirements are based on my work force needs, multi platform support, ease of work flow integration, which also means ease of use, and collaboration tools. I've found that most of my needs have been met, but I'm not won over by the outlook integration. My complaint stems from two issues, I am unable to have the calendar sit either below, or atop the plug in, but only to the side. This takes up precious real estate. The second, is that I have to run the plugin, instead of using outlooks task feature. Admittedly my issues might be my own limited understanding and if so I'll gladly change my rating to five stars, but till proven otherwise I'll leave it at four stars.
Mostly Excellent
by Type1Runner on 2014/10/01 18:30
I really like this app a lot! It provides lots of ways to organize a group tasks. Prioritization is a possibility. Setting due dates is great. Just takes a little bit of time to figure out how to set your dates, especially recurring ones. My one really big complaint is that I paid for the premium version so that I could get push reminders on my phone, and that part of the app is not working. I'm frustrated about that part. If that gets changed and fixed I can change this review. But for now, I'm changing the app I use for task management. I need to push notifications, or I will miss important tasks. I will mention that I contacted the developers for technical support, and they are aware of and are working on the issue. As of today, it still wasn't fixed. So they issued me a refund. I really appreciate that.
Excellent cross platform app
by Dana Piwinski on 2014/12/24 15:17
I've been using for about a year and half. A very solid todo list manager that works equally well on my windows PC Chrome or IE browser, and on my iOS 8 devices. I have many small projects to manage concurrently, with some larger ones going at the same time. This app helps me organize all my projects with project folders and subtasks. It's easy to go through and prioritize tasks daily. I also use the Inbox to just quickly throw in a task that I later file under the appropriate project, and my iPhone lets me do that by just speaking and having that converted into the text for the task. Nice. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the calendar integration, which is being improved. I would like to be able to assign a date range to a task (and subtasks), and have that show up graphically on a calendar. If it could do that, I wouldn't need other tools to do a project work breakdown structure. I paid for the premium version, both for the additional features, but especially to encourage this company to keep working on what I believe is a solid product with even more potential. If you like it, you might do the same.
A sufferer of ADD lands the perfect app...⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
by Lakahata on 2014/12/08 08:20
...at least that's what the title of my review should be! I've searched high and low for a To-Do app that works with how I work. I've bought, what feels like, every single app you can imagine to help organize my life. From the free ones to the paid ones, all of them grabbed my attention for a few days but we're either too simple, too difficult or just didn't have the necessary components for my lifestyle. Todoist gives me the cross-browser, web-based, app platform I need to keep me from losing my job. 😉😉 That's why I went ahead and upgraded to premium which was never my intent when I bought the app. Thank you Todoist for an incredible tool as well as a great blog!
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.
Very good tool. Works great.
by Paper solutions on 2013/08/10 18:45
I moved to this app from wonderlist which was really bad. So far I am very impressed. Love the time date stamp that is automatically input when you save the note. Wish it would open the attached emails on the phone app. That only works on the computer with outlook. Everything has been very good on this. Also on my iPad now. Really great. The latest update also corrected several thing. Mostly the way you view notes and the calendar option is so much better to move your to dos to the dates you want. Great app only getting better. One more item needed is to highlight the importance level color a little more. You can hardly see it. Thanks.
Best Todo List out there- use with Sunrise!
by Ematton on 2015/03/21 19:47
I've loved Todoist for a few months, but due to software issues on my old phone couldn't get it on my mobile app for awhile. Since upgrading my phone, I've gotten to see just how wonderful todoist is as I have my phone on me all the time. I integrated it with my Sunrise app (the best calendar app out there) which shows you your to do's in a calendar view along with your events. Very handy! Only comment is that I wish there was an easier way to drag and drop or reorder tasks as sub tasks etc. It's possible to do the su tasks on the mobile app, but is far less user friendly and seamless as online. Great app! Worth the premium yearly charge!
Simplicity conquers the world
by justDelmar on 2014/12/27 14:23
Todoist is a simple and easy to use task management app that really helps me conquer the world around me. I've tried just about all of the popular task management apps out there and I've stuck with this app the longest. It's intuitive, simple and functional without being overbearing. The app is flexible enough to let you manage your task the way you want and not by a particular process. However, it does support GTD for those that follow that methodology. I also love the integration with other apps and services especially the CloudMagic email app. Right now this is my goto task management app until another comes along to unseat the king. Now go out and be productive!
Finally found a system that works for me
by Furblong on 2013/08/12 15:46
Love this app, I made a project for my appointments so it replaces my calendar too. I now have all my info in one simple, searchable place. I like the addition of the Inbox for quick notes, then I go back after the meeting and assign times, projects and priorities. I don't know if it is new, but I also like seeing all my completed work under the Karma tab. I use this online with Chrome for Mac and PC and on an iPhone. I haven't had any of the sync problems other reviewers are writing about. Sometimes something seems missing but I search completed tasks and it is there, I had unintentionally checked the project.
Best todo service!
by Rjzmml on 2014/02/09 16:27
After trying many task lists, Todoist is my favorite by far. It is both minimalist so that you don't get to mired in organizing tasks, and flexible so that you can group tasks within other tasks, and now projects within projects if you choose. New features have been appearing, though I hope it also becomes possible to turn more of them off. "Karma" was introduced about a year ago, but I found it incredibly distracting until we were allowed to optionally turn it off a few months later. I hope the same happens with things like screen real estate being dedicated to congratulating me on having nothing due today!
Poor UI design
by Value_Arb on 2014/10/29 17:08
Not as bad as Mac App, which is horrible/confusing & borderline unusable, the ioS version focuses on pretty over usable. Always multiple steps for adding anything, always confusing about how to do things or whether they are active or not. When you create a task you can't add notes unless you save it, return to your list, find it, and then open it in notes editing "mode". super confusing whether you've created recurring tasks or not. Accidently drag left? you just competed a task, watch carefully for tiny notification where you aren't looking, bottom of screen, to give you fleeting chance to undo. Developers don't understand how iOS apps should work, when to use gestures and how to use them, when to ask for confirmation, when to make it a 2 step process so important changes are clear to user before they allow them to commit, etc
Generally love it...however
by groll999 on 2015/04/11 13:51
I've been a fan and a user for over a year. And although the app is easy to use, it's very clunky on sub tasks. I'm told its being worked on for updates but for now it's just not my smooth. For example you can't really work with sub tasks in the today view. You can only really work on them by clicking on the left column where you set up categories. Programs like wunderlist let you work on sub tasks within day views much more elegant. In fact if wunderlist figures out how to make repeating events more like todoist, I'm all in. I've told todoist unless they get the sub tasks to work in the daily view and to get the main task to complete when all sub tasks have been checked off, I'm leaving and not renewing. For me it's that important.
Intuitive, flexible, convenient
by Stratos777 on 2015/04/12 19:26
Have been looking for a better way to manage tasks and increase productivity. Had been using Outlook task list with very marginal results. After reading through reviews of many different options, I chose Todoist and have been very pleased with my decision. It is not complicated, allows grouping tasks into projects, color coding, creating templates for multi-step repetitive tasks, and best of all, it has interfaces for phone, web and tablet so I can enter or edit tasks from anywhere. It has already paid for itself many times over. Try the free version and see if it works as well for you.
First and Last App I Touch Daily
by Bruce and Donna on 2015/03/24 17:34
With an unbelievably intense schedule, subject to daily chaos and intense pressure, ToDoist has become my guide, scout, consultant and therapist, providing me peace of mind that I'm involving myself where I should, when I should, while reducing an amazing amount of stress that used to exist due to my attempting to manage to-do lists with my limited sets of tools, i.e., note pads and Outlook calendar. I recommended ToDoist to every professional I cross paths with, and in conjunction with Evernote, TaskClone, Gmail and Google calendar, I've been able to recapture personal time in my life while increasing me effectiveness of results of the time that I devote to my work. Thank you ToDoist!!!
More clarity around what I need to do
by NikkiDSM on 2015/04/12 13:27
I love this app. I upgraded to the paid version after using it for a couple days. I knew this was going to revolutionize how I run my life. I feel more organized since all the stuff I need to do is out of my head and is becoming something I can actually see and act on. The app interface is pretty sexy, and the website has great functionality, too. I just discovered that you can drag and drop anything - into a new project or to make it a sub-task. So intuitive and easy to use! As you complete more tasks, you get karma points. As a result, my karma's going up and my stress is going down! 👍🏼 Thanks, Todoist!
Pros & cons
by hasnain22 on 2014/06/14 12:57
Pros: it's a great to-do & task app. Simple, pretty intuitive and boldly minimal. it does what it says it does. Cons: please understand that this is NOT an app to manage your projects - unless you have very few or simple ones. It's too limited for that. For example, it doesn't have categories (work, personal, home, side business...) to group several projects based on context. It also doesn't allow you to focus on tasks that are due today, by the project. Instead, you see all tasks that are due today (personal mixed with work mixed with home mixed with side business). This is frustrating, and at times infuriating, when you have a lot of things to work on across several projects for work. That's just a couple examples that this is not a project mgt app. I bought this app instead of Omnifocus because of Omnifocus' larger price. Now I regret it. And bear in mind, you have to keep paying yearly for Todoist to use simple features like sync. So to sum it up, this is a great task app for simple groups of lists, not an app to stay on top of several projects across the different parts of your life.
Extremely Helpful & Great for Collaboration
by cr8907 on 2014/10/04 20:00
I'm the type of person who needs to be organized or my life gets hectic and I get anxious. This app helps me stay on track at work and at home. My boyfriend and I collaborate on our Errands project list and I love the "assigning tasks" feature so we can remind each other to do things and let each other know when we do something. It's really great for prioritizing tasks at work. The morning updates for what is on my to-do list for the day is great to keep me going. And I love that it syncs with google cal and that I can use the website or chrome app while at work. Download now! Free features are worth it!
Repeated reminders?
by Albert Song on 2014/10/22 15:35
I am a new user to this app. Am getting accustomed to it and like the simple look and limitless tags and projects you can add. The option of receiving multiple reminders for a task is also quite helpful as I often do not get to it the first time around. Sometimes I have tasks that need to get done each day, week, or month. It would be nice to be also have repeated reminders available as well. Also some of the options seem a bit too complicated, like the priority levels and sub-projects, etc. But perhaps that is just my own preference to keep things simpler. Overall, I am pleased with the app and find it worth the investment for my daily organizing needs.
Clean and functional
by StoryDelver on 2013/06/22 18:33
The interface is pure Apple in its simplicity. Complexity is there, but hidden. Superb. Too many task manager tools try to do too much and clutter thief interface into I usability. Todoist has avoided this trap so far. Please create on iPad! The iPhone version simply does not utilize the screen real estate if the iPad optimally. In terms of functionality, the main weakness is task entry workflow. I suggest taking a page from brainstorming apps. In Todoist entering a new task takes two touches each. I come from the world of mind-map apps where it only takes a single touch to enter a new item. Hitting done sets you up to enter the next one. Only the first item takes two touches. When entering task/listitems your brain is much faster than your fingers. Remembering all the things you need to do or get is essentially a brainstorming exercise. Things come fast. Two touches per item becomes a pain right away. I did a test and found that creating a list of things todo in Mindmapper is three times as fast. That said, I use Todoist for its other features that mind-maps don't have.
Oh what todo, what todo
by NateHolder on 2014/09/12 11:47
I have downloaded at least 10 "to-do" list apps and nothing comes close to Todoist. I needed somewhere between a project manager and a To-do list, but I didn't need something that was made for three people to manage and have a team of engineers to set up. With its ability to be on anything I am on, even gmail, it gives me a way to get stuff done. Along with its ability to group things into projects the different spheres of my life are handled. Plus it encourages you daily, if you set it up, by giving you points so you even feel more productive when you are being productive. Love Todoist thanks developers! -Nate
Locking up as I reschedule!
by coolcatteacher on 2014/09/05 09:53
I agree totally with the review posted by list fanatic. I love this app because it integrates with Toggl and Gmail beautifully and is awesome on my PC-- but the iPhone app is buggy! I look at the list to reschedule and review and after three or so moves to another day--- bam-- I am locked up and have to restart. Sometimes it even loses what I have done. The iPhone app needs help ASAP- this is a huge problem! I have looked and looked and finally found the tool that meets every need but I also need the iPhone app to work. Please have your developers fix this! Today all of the words of my lists disappeared. About to restart and will likely be back but really- doesn't this show up in your own testing. I have screenshots - please fix!

Excellent blend of simple power
by Amescreative on 2015/04/27 18:31
The perfect blend of simplicity and power and works great for our whole marketing team. We've been using it for 4 months now.
Great Cross-Platform To do App
by Rojak on 2015/04/27 15:58
Todoist got it right with this app. I needed a todo list that I could access and/or update from any pc or mobile device. It works beautifully on my desktop at home & office, my laptop on the road, an iPad mini and both my iPhone 6 and Note 3. Try for free and decide if it works for you. :)
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!
Excellent & Productive
by BlessedA on 2015/04/27 06:12
Truly helpful to organize all the many to-do's in life. Love the categories.... easy to put my mind at ease, while having everything in one place. Better than having those scraps of paper lay around everywhere...
Unable to get Windows Desktop App to work
by MrEdInDC on 2015/04/27 00:14

Fantastic app for helping you Get Things Done
by garrethb on 2015/04/26 23:55
Todoist is a great product for helping you track and accomplish your to-do's. I researched and experimented with a few todo type apps before I finally settled on this one. Along the way I discovered David Allen's Getting Things Done. It's a simple process for helping you organize and get through your todos. Google it if you don't know about it. Todoist supports this process nicely. The desktop product also nicely integrates with GMail so I can get my email box down to zero. The iPhone app is very well designed. All n all I'd have no problem recommending this app.
Great system
by Farmerjohnny on 2015/04/26 21:47
A great system, leading all others in simplicity while allowing work to be tracked and accomplished. 5 stars.
I depend on it
by Jodgeous on 2015/04/26 20:50
Have been thru a slew of task mgt apps and this one works best for me. Excellent cross-platform support and super easy to use.
Great task management app
by Rick the potter on 2015/04/26 19:02
I use it every day. I like the fact that it runs on so many platforms. Throughout the day I shift from my iPad to Outlook or my Chrome web browser, and everything syncs perfectly.
Solid app
by DisappointedSlackTryer on 2015/04/26 18:28
Multi-platform compatibility is fantastic. Still getting a hang of the app but I'm cautiously optimistic.
What I've been looking for!
by PaulRichardWossidlo on 2015/04/26 17:53
I switched over to Todoist after using another list manager. This is the best one yet! I actually got excited when I started to use this. Lots of power, yet easy to use, and cross platform to boot. I can use it for something simple like a grocery list, and at the same time use the templates feature to create a standard set of tasks for a project. I'm a photographer, so for a wedding (for example) there are standard tasks that need to be done before, during, and after the wedding. The plates are the perfect solution for that.
Needs Apple Watch Support!
by SMJ007 on 2015/04/26 17:06
This is a really great app, well designed and visually stunning! However, I know it's early, but several other Productivity Task Apps now have Apple Watch support and it's time for this App to follow suit....PLEASE!
Runs my life very well!
by ramirezjp on 2015/04/26 14:06
Super easy to use. Seamless interface across all platforms. Push notifications, recurring tasks, etc. it's all great and extremely well designed. No complaints at all.
Great App for Every Day Tasks
by boylanjones on 2015/04/26 13:20
This is a nicely designed app for every day sort of tasks. I'm trying to figure out how to use it for large projects, but I'm not sure how to do that. I think something like Microsoft Project would be best for that.
Awesome!
by Jkjkmeyer on 2015/04/26 00:43
One of my go to apps. I could not run my department without it and each version keeps getting better.
Free version does almost all I need
by jiraffe on 2015/04/25 23:49
I've tried other free task managers, and they fell short in either features or usability. Todoist easily lets me categorize, prioritize, and break down into sub-tasks. I just wish I could get reminders without having to pay for all the other premium features. A little more granularity in premium features would be nice.
Almost perfect
by MiRa : ) on 2015/04/25 23:37
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.
Excellent App
by Bakerent on 2015/04/25 23:16
Few issues, great platform -agnostic app. I also like the integration with Sunrise calendar.
Powerful App
by Teltoy on 2015/04/25 18:56
Todoist has brought our team to a whole new level of communication and production. Just need more than 200 open task.
Solid
by dr.hughes on 2015/04/25 18:04
No one app is perfect for everyone - but ToDoist comes closest in my opinion. I have used many, my previous was Wunderlist, but this one works better for me. The premium version is necessary for the best functionality. Love that it integrates with CloudMagic to directly save emails as tasks.
LOVE
by Aslfkfneb on 2015/04/25 15:19
I love todoist so much. It has really helped me stay on top of everything. The app and website are both very nice to use.
Love this app!
by DericCain on 2015/04/25 11:45
This is the best app for tracking tasks and projects and I have used many. I love the new interface and integration with Google Drive.
No surprises, nice touches
by Rick-designer-writer on 2015/04/25 03:04
Unlike some other todo apps that hide your tasks from view in sometimes weird and unnatural ways, todoist shows you what you entered and lets you rearrange it as you like. I make "projects" for my various areas of work, then put tasks into each project. For review, I step thru each of the projects. Pretty painless and no mystery
Great way to see where your time goes
by The Henkenator on 2015/04/25 01:52
Flawless interface. Integrating this app with a robust firm time-keeping/billing system would make it unstoppable.
Very intuitive and practical tool!
by Ncdesigns on 2015/04/25 01:47
I've been using Todoist for more than a year, and everything gets entered as a task. No paper waste, and I don't have to remember a thing because of the notifications and daily emails. I feel totally equipped for GTD.
It does what the others promised...
by Hakiman33 on 2015/04/24 23:46
Don't waste your time... This is perfection, pure and simple...it will do its job ...and that job is getting the things you need to do done...and with a sense of style too!
Me of the best todo lists I've ever used!
by markq007 on 2015/04/24 19:12
I've been looking around for a way to capture all my todo items for personal, work, and events that i coordinate. I've tried a number of things from pen and paper to Evernote to other apps. Non of which met my needs: - ability to group, tag, categorize tasks - easy to use - easy sync form phone to pc to Mac - quick to add in a task The inbox feature is brilliant! Key board short cuts all me to easily add tasks to the inbox. Throughout the day I check the inbox, just like I would check my mail, review the items and either complete the task or prioritize and file it under certain project. The ability to tag tasks, place them into project buckets, and create different search filters , Makes it easy to organize all the tasks. I feel so much more productive. After using the free version for a couple days, I decided to buy a one-year subscription. Awesome product!
Fix Widget
by Heycodyson on 2015/04/24 17:04
Widget hardly ever updates properly. Almost always shows nothing to do yet my inbox will have several items
Good design

Great
Deleted it
by Geli Gel on 2015/04/24 07:43
Nicely designed. I like the appearance. The first thing I wanted to do was add alarms to my tasks and that's a premium feature.
Great list.
by TLBeck on 2015/04/24 05:15
It shares great across platforms and sync's super fast.
The best of the to do apps
by jesserjohnson on 2015/04/23 21:29
There's definitely things it could fix but right now it's the best out there

If there were a negative review . . .
by DTeeters on 2015/04/23 17:50
This app is useless and does nothing to replace the regular calendar feature on my iPhone. It's a waste of space on my phone.
Life organized

Runs My Agency

We run my entire social media agency using this app. It's excellent. And having it on desktop and mobile is key because we work 50% on our phones.

by LordZardeck on 2015/04/22 16:54
Great app, could use a few more features such as parent projects showing child products like the desktop version does. Also, has a bug where you can't share a parent project and have all child projects inherently shared.
So easy to use!!

I use it to manage my daily tasks
by MLengerich on 2015/04/22 14:01
It's been awesome app. My team we all use it to manage our daily tasks and to check what everybody is doing. I didn't got the premium because I didn't find enough value on the premium version. You have to develop something significantly better for me to keep paying premium.
Excellent

A review
by D-Unit on 2015/04/22 02:10
I write reviews for two reasons only. Either I am so angry and frustrated that I bought a terrible app and I want everyone to know so that they may avoid the error I made or I find an app so perfect that I want to let everyone know and think the creators of the app would benefit from a good review. So this is the second one. Todoist is perfect. It will get you motivated to start doing s***. So download this app and start doing s***! There's your motto, todoist. What too PG-13?

Best To-Do List App

Really, though, I just love checking things off.

A Senior Citizens must have app
by JohnM57 on 2015/04/20 20:35
As a person who needs reminders to get things done, this app is one I could not live without. We know we need to remain physically active and this app helps me by reminding me what needs to be done. No matter how large or small the task, this app is most helpful. Working on Apple and Google platforms makes this app even more useful. If you're looking for a simple and effective reminder app be sure to give this one a try. This app has become even better with the latest updates.
Nice, but flawed
by HolyDuck on 2015/04/20 17:44
I really like the clean design and the fact that the service is very cross platform, it is a nice implementation of GTD and it is my weapon of choice right now - but it certainly has it's flaws as well. I like the basic organization and the labels, priorities and drag-and-drop-functions, but especially subtasks are handled poorly. It's a complete hassle to add subtasks, fx. Also, I'd love a lot more (intuitive) keyboard shortcuts. And there are a couple of features I still miss - fx the possibility of adding duration to a task, and an easy way to undo.
Best Todo List Out There
by Tom Monk on 2015/04/20 17:05
I needed a todo list that integrated with Zapier, Evernote, and Fantastical. This fits the bill. I would recommend it to anyone.
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.
LOVE todoist
by AGismynickname1287 on 2015/04/20 15:26
If you're obsessing over a productivity tool, just commit to this one. I have faithfully used it for about a year and it effectively facilitates a wide range of productivity methodologies including GTD. I suggest you pay for the upgraded version as well. It's fine without it, but if you have a job that requires you to be productive, you can afford the nominal cost of the upgrade and will reap the benefits.
Great, but annoying
by Glen Campbell on 2015/04/20 14:34
Really excellent to-do manager (I replaced OmniFocus with this) with one super annoying “feature.” It sends email notifications for each event, and there’s no way to turn them off via the app or the website. If they fix that, this will be a five-star app, but the emails, in essence, create EXTRA WORK for me, which is kind of what a to-do list manager is supposed to avoid.
Great
by Heyslick on 2015/04/20 13:14
I really like todoist, I used to use a paper planner, kept all of my tasks and notes. I have since started using Evernote for all of my daily note taking and todoist for all of my daily tasks. The thing I like about todoist is that my tasks don't get forgotten. They stay on my to do list until I do them. This is an awesome app.
Best, but needs add-one...
by Yogilyon on 2015/04/20 13:11
Hey everyone this really is a great app and I've tried around ten over past year. I love the simplicity of using chrome add-on and iPhone app that sync beautifully. My only suggestion to designers (hint hint) is to make it easier to add notes to the event when adding a new task; let it be easier to add a time into task; create a view by day with time; and a view by week with times so there is a visual calendar view; synchronize with iCal. Much more to finesse but still great. Contact me for details and happy to give feedback on next beta version. Thanks for simplifying my task manage and managing my mind!!
Best of the best!
by Dhallan on 2015/04/20 13:09

This app has helped me tremendously. The reminders that are sent via text are always convenient reminders right when I need them. Not sure if there's anything better out there partly because I haven't looked due to the fact this app has fixed the issue I was experience before! Highly recommended

My favorite todo app
by mr.plimsoles on 2015/04/19 12:00
I have tried a bunch of todo apps, but todo its is by far my favorite. The user interface allows me to add and manage items effortlessly. The karma score somehow motivates me to continue getting things done. It's always a joy to use.

Cool
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.
This is the app that works for me
by Decapede on 2015/04/07 15:38
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. I spent almost $200 on GTD tools before finding Todoist, do in my opinion, a seriously good value.
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.
Best task app ever, especially for ADHD
by twseal77 on 2014/08/31 16:01
I have ADD and I have been through a lot of apps and methods for trying to stay on task and remember stuff. This is by far the best app I have ever used... In fact so good that I normally don't write reviews, this is the first. It is very simple and quick to use, you van use it online on the web page on your PC with PC/mac app and on iPhone and iPad. I like the simplicity and ease of use. I like that I can add notes, attach files and keep categories for different things, like school, work, etc. So many apps and methods out there for ADD require a bunch of steps and processes and 'remember to remember' methods that don't work. If I could remember in the first place or keep my attention span long enough that might be ok, but I can't. This is the only app I have found that is simple and quick enough that I can pay attention and quickly add, update, and keep my life organized without being over complicated.
Works great, shareable, multi-platform, easy
by Kirk032167 on 2014/11/11 22:20
I have an iPad and an iPhone 6+. I'm not sure why everyone is complaining about this app. It works great. It syncs quickly. I can see it fine on my new phone. I find it easier to add items from my iPad, but that is because of the iPhone keyboard (which is certainly not the fault of this app). I can share my personal list with my spouse, and business todos with my business partner. We can assign tasks to one another. I add items from my iPad, then take my phone with me to the store if I am running errands. All synced and ready to complete. I also like the user rating. The more tasks you complete, the more experience your rating goes to (currently I'm a novice, but I am desperately seeking todos to increase my level :D). It does exactly what it advertises, which is help me keep track of and organize my todo lists. Great app. I would recommend it, and do.
Replaced so many other tools & Apps
by Dave Seville on 2014/11/20 04:44
After starting out as a trial customer for a short time I have been a premium customer for two years now. Your creativity is the only limitation as to what this program can do for you. This has replaced so many other apps and programs and paper methods that I was using I can't begin to list them all out. Just start using it right away on a simple basis then take some time in setting up how you want to use it and you'll be amazed what it can do. I have sections for business and personal and it's amazing how much more I get done and keep organized by using one premium app like this. I love that it is cross platformed and I can use it on my iPad, computer and iPhone and everything stays in sync. One of the best features I like is that I can have it email and or text me at certain times for tasks that I designate.
A flexible and feature-rich To Do app
by sloppyjack on 2013/09/06 00:44
I have recently come back to Todoist, after the recent updates. I love it. I left Remember the Milk. Why? There are a few things I need from a todo app: 1. Syncs with a good website 2. Simple 3. Flexible 4. Doesn't require a lot of thought to maintain Todoist ticks those requirements, with a pleasant to use experience. The website is great- it presents the most crucial information to you, adding tasks is a cinch, as is keeping as few or as many projects as you'd like. You can also add nifty colors to cue you. I have found that - even while applying GTD principles- I need to change my system occasionally to match my workload. Sometimes I have many folders to segregate tasks (and thinking) by project. Other times, I just want to keep my todos from getting forgotten. Todoist accommodates either. Easily. And, with a variety of views, the app and site allow you to keep the most important actionable info on front of you, when you need it. There is nothing over complicated here- no stars or next actions or whatnot. That means you can create you own system and it will work. And on the web you can drag and drop tasks and projects to reorder them (great) and set your own front page view (mind is P1 + next 7 days due). That could come to the app but I don't miss it.
Locks up after several updates
by To do list fanatic on 2014/07/28 09:45
I often need to reschedule tasks that I was unable to complete the previous day. As I go down the list reviewing each task and updating the due date the app will lock up. It is often making my changes but tasks don't visually move until I force the app the restart. It could be that this has been a long time issue but it is getting worse as we build up more list items. It has recently started to being unresponsive to any screen taps. It occasionally continues even after forcing the app to restart. If this continues we will need to look for a different solution. With that said it works great for keeping track of our family's very complex list of to do's. My husband, daughter, and I all use the app. One complaint with sharing projects is that it doesn't display them on the new shared user's screen the same. When it could be critical that the new invited user realize what project it is a part of.

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.
Finally!

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 just-a-monkey on 2015/03/31 18:01
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.
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.
Great Task Manager
by Richard Garcia on 2014/12/10 00:26
I have been searching for an app that can manage all of my tasks and projects, and this task manager gets the job done. It is the one app that can be integrated with other platforms very well such as gmail or sunrise calendar. It works great on my Mac and iPhone and all of my tasks are in my Todoist no matter what device I use. Ever wish to take an email that you would need to get back to (perhaps because of a lengthy research or response needed,) well in Gmail, there is a button that you can add to your browser which can save your emails as tasks. How about that???!!! It is truly a great task manager and would recommend it for anyone who has a lot of stuff on their plates and wants to quickly and easily jot down a to-do or reminder that they can circle back to when completed.
Love this todo app!
by ahaef on 2014/05/25 21:19
Full disclosure: I did end up subscribing to the premium service, but that's also probably the best endorsement I can give. Love the clean, simple interface for using the lists and checking things off, but still with tons of options when creating or editing a task. It can be as straightforward or complex as you want to make it. The daily email snapshot with reminders of how many things you did, how many you have to do that day, and how many points you have will either keep you hooked or annoy you; if it's the latter, they're easily turned off. Sync is super-fast (one of my complaints with other todo apps) and has never lost one of my tasks. No shared lists and no location-based due dates means this isn't my only todo app, but it's the one I use for all of my tasks!
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.
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 2015/04/25 23:37
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.
Just Right? Maybe so.
by pcborup on 2014/07/16 23:27
For a long time I have floated in between Omni Focus, Things, and a couple of other apps for task management. Each have their strengths but also sufficient weaknesses that I felt a bit like the three bears story (i.e. this one is too much...this one is too little...) Todoist may be that "just right" middle ground. It is taking some getting used to but one large plus is that it is very consistent experience across all platforms that I am trying. That includes all Apple platforms as well as Web and Windows. That in itself is a big positive as one of my complaints about other apps has been inconsistent experience. Also need to note that the sync between all devices is lightning fast! So while my rating is still a work in process my initial feedback is 4 out of 5.
Well implemented task manager
by Brianthreedee on 2015/01/25 14:44
Being new to the use of task management, I have tried several different apps. My requirements are based on my work force needs, multi platform support, ease of work flow integration, which also means ease of use, and collaboration tools. I've found that most of my needs have been met, but I'm not won over by the outlook integration. My complaint stems from two issues, I am unable to have the calendar sit either below, or atop the plug in, but only to the side. This takes up precious real estate. The second, is that I have to run the plugin, instead of using outlooks task feature. Admittedly my issues might be my own limited understanding and if so I'll gladly change my rating to five stars, but till proven otherwise I'll leave it at four stars.
Mostly Excellent
by Type1Runner on 2014/10/01 18:30
I really like this app a lot! It provides lots of ways to organize a group tasks. Prioritization is a possibility. Setting due dates is great. Just takes a little bit of time to figure out how to set your dates, especially recurring ones. My one really big complaint is that I paid for the premium version so that I could get push reminders on my phone, and that part of the app is not working. I'm frustrated about that part. If that gets changed and fixed I can change this review. But for now, I'm changing the app I use for task management. I need to push notifications, or I will miss important tasks. I will mention that I contacted the developers for technical support, and they are aware of and are working on the issue. As of today, it still wasn't fixed. So they issued me a refund. I really appreciate that.
Excellent cross platform app
by Dana Piwinski on 2014/12/24 15:17
I've been using for about a year and half. A very solid todo list manager that works equally well on my windows PC Chrome or IE browser, and on my iOS 8 devices. I have many small projects to manage concurrently, with some larger ones going at the same time. This app helps me organize all my projects with project folders and subtasks. It's easy to go through and prioritize tasks daily. I also use the Inbox to just quickly throw in a task that I later file under the appropriate project, and my iPhone lets me do that by just speaking and having that converted into the text for the task. Nice. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the calendar integration, which is being improved. I would like to be able to assign a date range to a task (and subtasks), and have that show up graphically on a calendar. If it could do that, I wouldn't need other tools to do a project work breakdown structure. I paid for the premium version, both for the additional features, but especially to encourage this company to keep working on what I believe is a solid product with even more potential. If you like it, you might do the same.
A sufferer of ADD lands the perfect app...⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
by Lakahata on 2014/12/08 08:20
...at least that's what the title of my review should be! I've searched high and low for a To-Do app that works with how I work. I've bought, what feels like, every single app you can imagine to help organize my life. From the free ones to the paid ones, all of them grabbed my attention for a few days but we're either too simple, too difficult or just didn't have the necessary components for my lifestyle. Todoist gives me the cross-browser, web-based, app platform I need to keep me from losing my job. 😉😉 That's why I went ahead and upgraded to premium which was never my intent when I bought the app. Thank you Todoist for an incredible tool as well as a great blog!
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.
Very good tool. Works great.
by Paper solutions on 2013/08/10 18:45
I moved to this app from wonderlist which was really bad. So far I am very impressed. Love the time date stamp that is automatically input when you save the note. Wish it would open the attached emails on the phone app. That only works on the computer with outlook. Everything has been very good on this. Also on my iPad now. Really great. The latest update also corrected several thing. Mostly the way you view notes and the calendar option is so much better to move your to dos to the dates you want. Great app only getting better. One more item needed is to highlight the importance level color a little more. You can hardly see it. Thanks.
Best Todo List out there- use with Sunrise!
by Ematton on 2015/03/21 19:47
I've loved Todoist for a few months, but due to software issues on my old phone couldn't get it on my mobile app for awhile. Since upgrading my phone, I've gotten to see just how wonderful todoist is as I have my phone on me all the time. I integrated it with my Sunrise app (the best calendar app out there) which shows you your to do's in a calendar view along with your events. Very handy! Only comment is that I wish there was an easier way to drag and drop or reorder tasks as sub tasks etc. It's possible to do the su tasks on the mobile app, but is far less user friendly and seamless as online. Great app! Worth the premium yearly charge!
Simplicity conquers the world
by justDelmar on 2014/12/27 14:23
Todoist is a simple and easy to use task management app that really helps me conquer the world around me. I've tried just about all of the popular task management apps out there and I've stuck with this app the longest. It's intuitive, simple and functional without being overbearing. The app is flexible enough to let you manage your task the way you want and not by a particular process. However, it does support GTD for those that follow that methodology. I also love the integration with other apps and services especially the CloudMagic email app. Right now this is my goto task management app until another comes along to unseat the king. Now go out and be productive!
Finally found a system that works for me
by Furblong on 2013/08/12 15:46
Love this app, I made a project for my appointments so it replaces my calendar too. I now have all my info in one simple, searchable place. I like the addition of the Inbox for quick notes, then I go back after the meeting and assign times, projects and priorities. I don't know if it is new, but I also like seeing all my completed work under the Karma tab. I use this online with Chrome for Mac and PC and on an iPhone. I haven't had any of the sync problems other reviewers are writing about. Sometimes something seems missing but I search completed tasks and it is there, I had unintentionally checked the project.
Best todo service!
by Rjzmml on 2014/02/09 16:27
After trying many task lists, Todoist is my favorite by far. It is both minimalist so that you don't get to mired in organizing tasks, and flexible so that you can group tasks within other tasks, and now projects within projects if you choose. New features have been appearing, though I hope it also becomes possible to turn more of them off. "Karma" was introduced about a year ago, but I found it incredibly distracting until we were allowed to optionally turn it off a few months later. I hope the same happens with things like screen real estate being dedicated to congratulating me on having nothing due today!
Poor UI design
by Value_Arb on 2014/10/29 17:08
Not as bad as Mac App, which is horrible/confusing & borderline unusable, the ioS version focuses on pretty over usable. Always multiple steps for adding anything, always confusing about how to do things or whether they are active or not. When you create a task you can't add notes unless you save it, return to your list, find it, and then open it in notes editing "mode". super confusing whether you've created recurring tasks or not. Accidently drag left? you just competed a task, watch carefully for tiny notification where you aren't looking, bottom of screen, to give you fleeting chance to undo. Developers don't understand how iOS apps should work, when to use gestures and how to use them, when to ask for confirmation, when to make it a 2 step process so important changes are clear to user before they allow them to commit, etc
Generally love it...however
by groll999 on 2015/04/11 13:51
I've been a fan and a user for over a year. And although the app is easy to use, it's very clunky on sub tasks. I'm told its being worked on for updates but for now it's just not my smooth. For example you can't really work with sub tasks in the today view. You can only really work on them by clicking on the left column where you set up categories. Programs like wunderlist let you work on sub tasks within day views much more elegant. In fact if wunderlist figures out how to make repeating events more like todoist, I'm all in. I've told todoist unless they get the sub tasks to work in the daily view and to get the main task to complete when all sub tasks have been checked off, I'm leaving and not renewing. For me it's that important.
Intuitive, flexible, convenient
by Stratos777 on 2015/04/12 19:26
Have been looking for a better way to manage tasks and increase productivity. Had been using Outlook task list with very marginal results. After reading through reviews of many different options, I chose Todoist and have been very pleased with my decision. It is not complicated, allows grouping tasks into projects, color coding, creating templates for multi-step repetitive tasks, and best of all, it has interfaces for phone, web and tablet so I can enter or edit tasks from anywhere. It has already paid for itself many times over. Try the free version and see if it works as well for you.
First and Last App I Touch Daily
by Bruce and Donna on 2015/03/24 17:34
With an unbelievably intense schedule, subject to daily chaos and intense pressure, ToDoist has become my guide, scout, consultant and therapist, providing me peace of mind that I'm involving myself where I should, when I should, while reducing an amazing amount of stress that used to exist due to my attempting to manage to-do lists with my limited sets of tools, i.e., note pads and Outlook calendar. I recommended ToDoist to every professional I cross paths with, and in conjunction with Evernote, TaskClone, Gmail and Google calendar, I've been able to recapture personal time in my life while increasing me effectiveness of results of the time that I devote to my work. Thank you ToDoist!!!
More clarity around what I need to do
by NikkiDSM on 2015/04/12 13:27
I love this app. I upgraded to the paid version after using it for a couple days. I knew this was going to revolutionize how I run my life. I feel more organized since all the stuff I need to do is out of my head and is becoming something I can actually see and act on. The app interface is pretty sexy, and the website has great functionality, too. I just discovered that you can drag and drop anything - into a new project or to make it a sub-task. So intuitive and easy to use! As you complete more tasks, you get karma points. As a result, my karma's going up and my stress is going down! 👍🏼 Thanks, Todoist!
Pros & cons
by hasnain22 on 2014/06/14 12:57
Pros: it's a great to-do & task app. Simple, pretty intuitive and boldly minimal. it does what it says it does. Cons: please understand that this is NOT an app to manage your projects - unless you have very few or simple ones. It's too limited for that. For example, it doesn't have categories (work, personal, home, side business...) to group several projects based on context. It also doesn't allow you to focus on tasks that are due today, by the project. Instead, you see all tasks that are due today (personal mixed with work mixed with home mixed with side business). This is frustrating, and at times infuriating, when you have a lot of things to work on across several projects for work. That's just a couple examples that this is not a project mgt app. I bought this app instead of Omnifocus because of Omnifocus' larger price. Now I regret it. And bear in mind, you have to keep paying yearly for Todoist to use simple features like sync. So to sum it up, this is a great task app for simple groups of lists, not an app to stay on top of several projects across the different parts of your life.
Extremely Helpful & Great for Collaboration
by cr8907 on 2014/10/04 20:00
I'm the type of person who needs to be organized or my life gets hectic and I get anxious. This app helps me stay on track at work and at home. My boyfriend and I collaborate on our Errands project list and I love the "assigning tasks" feature so we can remind each other to do things and let each other know when we do something. It's really great for prioritizing tasks at work. The morning updates for what is on my to-do list for the day is great to keep me going. And I love that it syncs with google cal and that I can use the website or chrome app while at work. Download now! Free features are worth it!
Repeated reminders?
by Albert Song on 2014/10/22 15:35
I am a new user to this app. Am getting accustomed to it and like the simple look and limitless tags and projects you can add. The option of receiving multiple reminders for a task is also quite helpful as I often do not get to it the first time around. Sometimes I have tasks that need to get done each day, week, or month. It would be nice to be also have repeated reminders available as well. Also some of the options seem a bit too complicated, like the priority levels and sub-projects, etc. But perhaps that is just my own preference to keep things simpler. Overall, I am pleased with the app and find it worth the investment for my daily organizing needs.
Clean and functional
by StoryDelver on 2013/06/22 18:33
The interface is pure Apple in its simplicity. Complexity is there, but hidden. Superb. Too many task manager tools try to do too much and clutter thief interface into I usability. Todoist has avoided this trap so far. Please create on iPad! The iPhone version simply does not utilize the screen real estate if the iPad optimally. In terms of functionality, the main weakness is task entry workflow. I suggest taking a page from brainstorming apps. In Todoist entering a new task takes two touches each. I come from the world of mind-map apps where it only takes a single touch to enter a new item. Hitting done sets you up to enter the next one. Only the first item takes two touches. When entering task/listitems your brain is much faster than your fingers. Remembering all the things you need to do or get is essentially a brainstorming exercise. Things come fast. Two touches per item becomes a pain right away. I did a test and found that creating a list of things todo in Mindmapper is three times as fast. That said, I use Todoist for its other features that mind-maps don't have.
Oh what todo, what todo
by NateHolder on 2014/09/12 11:47
I have downloaded at least 10 "to-do" list apps and nothing comes close to Todoist. I needed somewhere between a project manager and a To-do list, but I didn't need something that was made for three people to manage and have a team of engineers to set up. With its ability to be on anything I am on, even gmail, it gives me a way to get stuff done. Along with its ability to group things into projects the different spheres of my life are handled. Plus it encourages you daily, if you set it up, by giving you points so you even feel more productive when you are being productive. Love Todoist thanks developers! -Nate
Locking up as I reschedule!
by coolcatteacher on 2014/09/05 09:53
I agree totally with the review posted by list fanatic. I love this app because it integrates with Toggl and Gmail beautifully and is awesome on my PC-- but the iPhone app is buggy! I look at the list to reschedule and review and after three or so moves to another day--- bam-- I am locked up and have to restart. Sometimes it even loses what I have done. The iPhone app needs help ASAP- this is a huge problem! I have looked and looked and finally found the tool that meets every need but I also need the iPhone app to work. Please have your developers fix this! Today all of the words of my lists disappeared. About to restart and will likely be back but really- doesn't this show up in your own testing.
