Excellent app
by DGParker on 2015/09/05 01:27
I use it across several platforms, Mac and WINDOWS 10....
Love this app
by D.lady on 2015/09/04 13:47
I'm getting so much done. I have never been so productive. Everything is right there on my list. When I have a few odd moments and can't remember what I intended to do next, I just consult Todoist for my next task or project.
Stop emailing me!
by Saschapppppppop on 2015/09/04 11:46
Downloading your app does not give you permission to email me three times a day. Downloader beware.
It is a good app, but...
by Xxxxkstbsla on 2015/09/04 00:09
I love this app, it is the first thing I have found that fits my needs. Except for one thing. Reminders are the most important part of a task manager, and you are making exclusive to the premium feature? Let me just say, this is a good task manager, but if you want your "millions of people," then make reminders free. And yes, this feature bothers me so much I give you only a 3.
I have no clue how I ever lived without this app!
by TruthInRhymes on 2015/09/01 01:24
4500 karma as of today. This app has increased my productivity more than I ever thought possible! I am in constant competition with myself. I love it! It is extremely user friendly and I haven't had any hiccups. My one and only gripe is that I still can't figure out how to keep it from emailing me reminders. This is absurdly annoying due to the volume of emails I get from todoist. Many thanks for a great and super helpful app!
Life is a little easier
by Novaprospektor on 2015/09/01 00:19
I use this for work. Saves my butt daily. I love how It lets me roll things over to the next day without much fuss. Going to pay for all the extra features after the free month. It's awesome.
Excellent app
by Rebern on 2015/08/31 02:19
I have used all of the todo apps for IOS, from the complicated to the most simple. Todoist meets all of my needs and works across all of my devices. They have few minor features that are not intuitive but the leaning curve is quick.
Great app!
by emilet87 on 2015/08/30 17:35
Life saver of an app! If you use it your brain space will be saved from remembering tasks.
Great app
by Rcurry71 on 2015/08/30 03:31
Really well done!
Dependable
by Edrowell on 2015/08/29 14:21
This is a simple app with a simple purpose--to be your personal external memory. I really use this and it relieves the anxiety of forgetting something.
Wonderful
by Dan77776444 on 2015/08/29 12:32
This thing takes the cake. I have tried a lot of programs and they have never met my my needs. This app gets to 95%. A few requests: - Option to have app open immediately to inbox and/or quick add button in app that auto adds to inbox (when on the go don't have time to push multiple buttons). -Deferral statistics - having feedback as to what is being differed (which projects, frequency, etc.) would provide feedback to problem solve and improve. -Start dates (I know there is some around this but not complete). Keep up the wonderful work
Amazing! Perfect for work and personal use
by chewy1319 on 2015/08/29 02:11
Great app, comprehensive, responsive and so user friendly. In love. I'll never use another to do list ever.
Lots of promise
by DMP5 on 2015/08/27 03:37
So far so good in terms of helping me keep track of all my life stuff. Sort of wish there was a bit more of a "manual" to figure out all the UI features, but googling for answers has not failed me yet, and is not enough to knock down the rating, as I'll learn these things through use.
Great!
by bfrostieone on 2015/08/27 03:04
Great. Do need to pay for some key features.
Fantastic app
by M.E. - chi on 2015/08/27 02:01
Love being able to sub-project and sort in various ways. Also gives a nice sense of accomplishment Athens of the day!
Love!!!
by Eik2778 on 2015/08/26 00:17
Great to do app. Best one I've used
Love this app!
by janeson59 on 2015/08/25 03:27
Todoist is easily the most versatile and intuitive list keeping and reminder app I've used - and I've used a lot of them. I have the app on all my iDevices, as well as having both the app and the Chrome extension on my MacBooks. I fell in love when I found that I turn an email into a task and show the tasks on my calendar. It's easy to group, prioritize, schedule, and check off tasks. The karma points are a nice touch, too.
I love this app.
by 3llyn on 2015/08/24 17:58
Features that keep me happy: uploading attachments to to-dos non-locally (PDFs get links that you can access anywhere), tag everything, view tasks due in the next 7 days, custom filters. Also the app is beautiful! I'd like to be able to use start dates on tasks in the future.
Great app!
by user1101100111 on 2015/08/24 06:15
App works well. Very convenient to use.
Good
by Umbros1971 on 2015/08/23 03:26
I like it.
Simple, intuitive & powerful
by Jcktn on 2015/08/22 03:42
I really like the interface. Easy to use. Has all the features I need. Now that you can edit multiple items it's even better.
Todoist
by Ride the Rockies on 2015/08/22 01:42
I've been a long time fan of GTD and now to see it integrated in an app is awesome! I love how it works across various platforms. No more need to use different apps, it all can be done on Todoist. The syncing across platforms is awesome and integration with IFTTT is great! Haven't forgotten my brellie once!
Simple and effective
by sara_g29 on 2015/08/21 21:50
I love the workflow of this app. I use the mobile app in conjunction with the main website, the app is great for adding "inbox" tasks when I think of them on the go. Some premium features seem like they should be free, like being able to filter by project AND due date. So I'm docking one star. Overall, I'd recommend this app.
Great UI
by Tom10135 on 2015/08/20 13:51
Use it every day.
My Favorite!!
by TommyBoy624 on 2015/08/20 03:31
This is one of my favorite apps on my phone! It's simple to use and helps me keep track of all my daily duties.
fantastic task management app
by cmr4578 on 2015/08/19 05:36
better than any other task manager
Simple and Complicated
by odellcs on 2015/08/18 15:12
I really like how todoist is simple when you get started and you can make it as advanced as you want. I've even done some ifttt things. My one complaint is its lack of team based features.
Essential part of my productivity workflow
by B.Obama on 2015/08/18 01:17
This is one of those apps I have on every device and use everyday. I'm soooo close to springing for the premium version. As a personal task list tracker, you can't beat this app. I actually wish I had more people to share projects with!
Best to do list out there!
by Jenny 615 on 2015/08/16 03:34
The premium version is worth the money if you've got the work. It lets you implement the GTD system by using the labels. I've tried wunderlist and many others - this is the best.
I actually use it
by tebjmd on 2015/08/13 22:16
I find this refreshingly simple and easy to use. I commend it to your service. It serves me well
Best task management app out there
by kimmica98 on 2015/08/13 16:47
I've used (and paid for premium subscriptions) for many task management apps over the years, but none of them have matched Todoist's simplicity, sync features, and availability on multiple platforms. Keep up the great work, Todoist team!
Save Your Money
by BlondieZX on 2015/08/12 05:58
I paid for the yearly subscription (whatever that is), which was a complete waste of money. The app is neither intuitive nor user-friendly. While it supposedly has many helpful features, I could not find them. I'm now happily using Errands, a much more useful app.
Epic!!
by doneil14 on 2015/08/11 21:59
Best app I have gotten in a long time.
Best task and project management app out there!
by Raising Happiness on 2015/08/11 15:09
I'm a performance and productivity coach...to-doist is a must-have tool for all of my clients!
Favorite App
by ok save on 2015/08/11 00:57
This has became my favorite app and I've stuck with it longer than any organizing tool in the past! The Karma feature adds a fun kick to it!
Excellent app
by Trident004 on 2015/08/10 03:55
It helps to keep track of things to do and much more
Simple yet powerful.
by Fueled by God on 2015/08/09 22:05
Simple to use with great functionality. It worked for me better than a bunch of other apps I downloaded. I like the desktop sync as well.
Scam ,,, told u free then you need to upgrade it to use it
by Muntherhabeeb on 2015/08/08 04:58
Full scam
Great task manager
by KurtH54 on 2015/08/08 02:44
Todoist has replaced outlook tasks for my business environment. I like the simplicity and the number of clients for different platforms. The outlook plugin is essential for getting rid of the outlook tasks. There's a few features I'd like to see such as a more standard date picker for setting recurring appointments. Overall it's the best personal task manager I've found for a busy business person.
I've given up!
by SmashingSensation on 2015/08/08 01:12
Save your money and time: use OMNIFOCUS instead. I don't understand why it's so difficult to listen to your customers: We want START/DEFER dates! I mean just Google "Todoist start dates" and you'll find hundreds of forums BEGGING for start dates. I even posted one and the same staff member always responds with the exact same response: He gives you this terrible workaround to use start dates as repeating task! The most annoying thing ever. I wish I could use todoist, but they don't care about us!! I even offered to pay $100 per year just to get start dates! Now they're getting nothing from me, including hundreds of other users.
HUGE fan
by Cogswell N.J. on 2015/08/07 20:42
Not really a review writer but I needed to help get the word out there. I have tried many different task management apps but have yet to find the right one until now. The Outlook integration and cross platform support is brilliant. The premium cost is a little steep, but I went for it and am very glad I did. All the functionality is fantastic! I even love the Apple Watch app!! I highly recommend you give this a try!
Not the best free option
by Dizfunctions on 2015/08/07 15:26
If you don't plan on using all the features that Todoist premium provided, then go with Wunderlist. If offers far more features for free than Todoist does. However, for people interested in using premium, then Todoist is the better choice with the best multi platform support and the best task organization tools.
My favorite app next to evernote
by Jonathan190 on 2015/08/07 04:20
I use this app everyday with great confidence in it's effectiveness for me. I am challenged to stick to what I say. I have due dates up to 9 months away! It is the cross between my written goals and what I have to do right this moment.
Perfect task application
by Fetzxyz on 2015/08/05 20:09
Makes it easy to create tasks. Keeps you focused on what's next. Don't know how I got along without it. Tried Omni Focus but no web or windows access.
Simple, powerful, and elegant!
by iMacgyver74 on 2015/08/01 16:06
The GTD methodology by David Allen has really worked well for me over the years. I previously used OmniFocus on my Mac and iPhone, but the synchronization wasn’t reliable anymore and the interface became clumsier with each version release. I just started using Todoist two weeks ago and absolutely love it so far! It has all the features I like/wanted in a GTD task manager, and none of the extraneous bells and whistles that most apps tend to add. The synchronization is instant, seamless, and reliable. The developers did a truly wonderful job creating a great user experience for both desktop and mobile that’s practical, helpful, and efficient to use every day. The annual price for the premium version is well worth it if you need a serious task manager you can depend on. Simple, powerful, and elegant sums it up for me!
Helps build good habits
by Time To Upgrade on 2015/08/01 04:55
I've used this app every single day for the last 3 months, and I've noticed an overall increase in my productivity both at work and at home. It helps keep you organized and focused on the task at hand.
Solid app
by Shfuenfn iffbe on 2015/07/31 21:14
Does everything I need
Just want sole with reminders
by Glarge on 2015/07/31 14:13
Looks good if you need to pay for a premium to do list app - I just wanted to make a quick to do list on the go and set a few reminders - not paying $30 for that
I wanted to like it
by thnyc on 2015/07/31 13:46
The web version is beautiful. The widget is beautiful. But the app listing of todos is ugly with so much white space. They can fit 11 items in the screen with the widget (if the used the entire screen). But the layout in the app only show 7 and my todos are not long. Any.Do, wunderlist, and 2Do show 10-11 todos with the same space. I want the multiple platforms and left Omnisync because there was no browser entry. If my view looked like the widget, I would stay. But I have 100s of todos and seeing them 7 at a time doesn't even show me today's.
A powerful cross-device app
by heresjimmyjam on 2015/07/31 02:55
I discovered this app at a great time, as I had just picked up GTD by David Allen. I can't recommend this app enough! It works great in both my professional and personal life.
Excellent app
by Faganmw on 2015/07/30 14:00
I'm still working On my strategy but the app is efficient and comprehensive. Syncs with Google
Great todo app
by Tvdthanh on 2015/07/30 02:23
Intuitive interface, cross platform compatibility, and nested items all in the the free version. I use this everyday and it helps me get things done.
Great Utility
by Ms. Mudshark on 2015/07/29 00:50
I am currently not working due to an injury. Todoist keeps me focused and accountable. No tech problems just a great tool.
Great task management app
by Rick the potter on 2015/07/28 23:32
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.
Extremely useful !
by Sbear137 on 2015/07/28 23:26
Great tool for users who are easily forgetful
Powerful, Simple and Mine!
by G_Bone on 2015/07/28 02:03
Why four stars? Because you can not create a note while creating a task. You must first make the task, then go back and attach a note; inefficient and needs to be corrected (I have reached out to Tech Support). Outside of that... awesome! Simple, easy, powerful with perfect syncing between all iOS and Mac apps. After years of using one of the "original iOS todo apps," I've switched to Todoist for good!
The best Todo app I've used, so far...
by foss4us on 2015/07/27 16:39
I've tried numerous Todo apps over the years... first Remember the Milk (back when it was still being actively developed), Todo.ly, Tracks (an GTD-focused open-source, self-hosted web-based app written w/ Rails), Google Tasks (which isn't really a task manager, IMO), a few not worth mentioning, and more recently, Things for Mac, JIRA, Asana, Swipe, Timeful (now owned by Google) and Todoist. Of these, Todoist has been my favorite. It works well w/ the GTD-ish system I use, has all the usual features plus some unique ones (although many are limited to the paid version), and it's easily extensible through IFTTT and via it's own API. The "Karma" feature is an especially clever implementation of behavioral modification/conditioning through gamification. Even w/ the handicapped free version, Todoist is still the best todo app I've used. I'm considering upgrading to the Premium version for some of the "hostage" features, but there are a few things I'd like to see before I do that: (1) Todoist Premium is priced at $28.99/yr. Yes, some apps charge more. Things for Mac charges an extortionate $48.99 (so I ditched them after having been loyal since the beta). Come on, it's a todo app. You didn't cure Ebola. For $48.99 I'd expect someone to actually do my laundry, etc. I'd hate to ditch Todoist though. Considering TickTick has nearly all the features of Todoist and only charges $19.99, it would be nice if Todoist lowered their price. They don't even offer a Premium Trial, although their ToS allows it. But because I believe Todoist predates TickTick, and because it looks like TickTick is — let's say — "greatly influenced" by Todoist, I'm giving Todoist time to make the right decision before I jump ship. (2) I'd like to know what security measures Todoist takes. A todo app normally carries some very personal information... it's only a matter of time until a big one is breached. I expect my data to be encrypted both in transit and at rest. I haven't examined the traffic yet to ensure they're at least using SSL, but I'm adding that to my todo list. ;) Auth is handled via Google sign-in, so I know that much is safe, but I'd like them to be transparent about everything else. They use third parties for serving/actually storing the data. While they say in the TOS/Privacy Policy that the user retains all rights to their data, they noticeably do not name the partners (probably AWS or Google), nor do they state that data is only stored in encrypted (or even hashed) form. Rather — regarding security — they only state: When we transfer and receive certain types of sensitive information we redirect visitors to a SSL secure server. "Certain types of sensitive information," worryingly, seems to indicate that the large majority of data isn't encrypted at all. You may be asking, "So what if some black hat gets my grocery list?" or "What do you have to hide?" First off, NOYB. Secondly, if I have a todo item about scheduling — just for argument — an abortion, that would be pretty sensitive. I'm not picking on Todoist. Most of these cloud todo app are similarly vague, at best, or neglectful, at worst. For the price of Premium, I'd like security I can feel confident about. (3) I'm very tired of todo-app vendor lock-in. If I truly retain all rights to my data, I should be able to export it, en masse, at will (see Facebook's example). (4) The weakness of Todoist (and most other todo-apps featuring collaboration) is a lack of means to facilitate cross-app usage. Wouldn't it be nice if you could share tasks w/ someone who uses another app? Of course! I think every todo-app user wishes that, but doesn't want to do w/ getting a new app. Todoist could improve their service by allowing users to download or directly export data to other todo apps, provided that those 3rd parties agree to build interoperability w/ Todoist. There are a myriad number of ways it could be done if they wanted to do it in a fair, efficient, federated, app-agnostic way (call me for specifics, Todoist). I truly believe Todoist has nothing to fear from this, since they're the best. They could really be a leader here, and will probably even gain new users in the process.'
Simple but powerful
by Kt kapow on 2015/07/27 15:47
Best to do list app I've tried. And I've tried a lot. I like that Is supported on my desktop as well
Great App!
by Malscone on 2015/07/26 17:19
(When) I use this, it's a very powerful tool. It syncs flawlessly with my sunshine calendar app, the reminders are useful, and it feels good to check things off my lists!
One of the best but still have a few wishes...
by Hotfish2012 on 2015/07/23 17:29
I've tried all sorts of to do list methods and apps. I think the GTD principles are the gold standard. Applying them in different apps is what makes a difference for me. The ease of inputting, updating, rearranging ends up determining how much I use the system. Todoist does a fine job. There are a few improvements that I wish would be made -or perhaps they exist but I have not figured out how to use them, which itself speaks to the need to clarify instructions. First, when I think of a project I need to complete, I start to list all of the steps t need to complete it, often not in proper sequence. The ability to tuck the steps under the project is easy enough but I haven't found the way to resequence the sub steps Also I haven't found how to link a task with an Evernote note. I suppose I need to make a project of figuring those things out, but really should not have to. All in all, this is a really terrific app nonetheless.
Amazing application!!
by AWM-AllynJ on 2015/07/21 23:31
I do find that this application works even better if your paying for the subscription.
Great app if you make a habit of using it
by wehorak on 2015/07/21 05:14
I'm using the free version and that's more than enough to help me get stuff done. I've been using it for a few months now and I check it a couple of times each day to keep the day on track. The only downside to it is my use of it: if I didn't get into the habit of using it then I would've abandoned it long ago.
This tool completes my productivity suite of apps.
by CoCEvangelist on 2015/07/20 00:50
With Evernote and Dropbox, Todoist completes my suite of tools. As a paid user, no crashes. Great UI, simple options, text and email reminders and other features to enhance productivity. I love the encouragement from the Karma scores.
Excellent list-maker & reminder
by Vajra Sky on 2015/07/19 23:41
Used this app now for a semester, and love it. Not too complicated, but detailed enough to accommodate individual needs. Great UI, intuitive, and already answered a question very quickly. Great support. Highly recommended.
Such A Helpful Tool
by ADabasinskas on 2015/07/17 03:58
I downloaded the app for my work computer first, and man what a productive way to organize my time! After enjoying how the app was set up I shortly downloaded it to my iPhone as well. I love that the two lists sync with each other. The only thing I wish you could do was drag the list into a particular set, instead of just the flag severity system.
Better than OmniFocus!
by fitfatlington on 2015/07/16 21:29
I'd been an OF user for years, but realized I wasn't using the 'power' features and was getting tired of the interface which really makes it seem like one *should*. Todoist has much better background sync, is a lighter-weight application, and motivates nicely without being overbearing. It's great to have tags and to be able to email fully elaborated tasks into specific projects - so far, everything works as advertised, and it's helping me manage all my academia-related commitments with ease.
Needs ability to change default time duration
by Andres13 on 2015/07/16 19:01
Please change it to where the default time duration will be fixed.. Paid for this app and am not happy.
Fantastic to do app
by ebusinessguru on 2015/07/16 09:07
Changed over from Omnifocus and it's been a real joy to use!
Awesome
by RosetteCandy on 2015/07/15 22:42
I can't say enough great things about this app. Easy, simple, and straight to the point!!
Perfect
by Memolious on 2015/07/15 20:58
Perfect
love it!!
by walkebe on 2015/07/15 01:16
makes me much more productive!
AWESOME!!!
by supwiddat on 2015/07/14 15:59
I've tried them all, yet vowed to never pay for a "Do" app. This one changed my mind with its integrations and functionally. I actually get things done rather than keep adding things to the list and watch it grow. I concur that you need a published privacy policy, though, but since the payment is done through the Apple Store and not directly to the service, it seems to be more of a formality.
Works for me
by Aga3 on 2015/07/14 01:44
I recently started to implement some GTD practices in my life. Todoist is helping tremendously, and is a pleasure to use. I will likely upgrade to premium before long.
The Final Winner
by ScottyT79 on 2015/07/13 09:46
I've used so many apps in the pursuit of organization and task management that by now it's an absurd obsession. Todoist wins, finally. I've used it for 5 months now while none of the others lasted more than a few weeks. It's strengths are: -Simplicity of task entry and edits, especially it's fantastic repeat reminders which use real language to input -Cross platform -Gorgeous design -Many organization labels and options (tags, projects, and priorities) -Reminders options (notification, email, sms) The only thing I wish was that you could have multiple folders or "lists of lists" so that I could also keep my home reminders in the same app more easily. This is not a big deal at all, and I recognize that you have to balance features with ease of use. This is, in my vast experience, the best software for to do lists that exists today.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
by Mojack81 on 2015/07/10 02:14
I had been using Daytimer paper calendaring products since the 1980's. I got tired of writing to do items from one day to another. I decided to look for an app to do this for me. I checked online for the best to do apps and saw a review of Todoist. I downloaded it and have been using it for a couple months now. It is amazing! I can not only calendar to do items, but I can put them into separate categories. I also love the fact that you can input recurring events. I would definitely recommend this app!
Too many bugs
by Choreilly on 2015/07/09 20:27
I really want to love this app. But unfortunately there are way too many annoying bugs. Too many to mention. I'm going to have to consider trying another todo app. Too bad.
Massive Productivity Booster
by TheRainParade on 2015/07/09 04:41
The UI is clean and intuitive; your lists can be as simple or complex and multi-leveled as you like. The simplicity of the functions themselves allow great diversity in how they can be used. I use this to create and manage my grocery list, to track my productivity at work, to build good habits, to keep up with my housework, and even to remember to call my mom and catch up with friends. Crossing things off the lists and the Karma function really helps me feel good about the progress I make, too! Lastly, I love how it integrates with Sunrise calendar so I can see date-specific tasks at a glance. Highly recommend this app.
awesome
by kelizvonm on 2015/07/09 00:46
this app is my favorite for productivity - and the interface is so easy and satisfying!
Love it, but desperate for templates.
by Alexa Rosario on 2015/07/08 22:48
New Review: Apple Watch app works beautifully. With WatchOS 2, can't wait to have Todoist as a complication on my watch and a native app. Past Review (STILL APPLIES): I'm a pro user and SO many things that were executed flawlessly, but it's SERIOUSLY missing TEMPLATES/WORKFLOWS (pleaseeee!)... The ability to insert a workflow to a project for team work is imperative. Can't run my team without that... But this is perfect otherwise.
My go-to
by mamcart on 2015/07/08 17:34
I love this app and use it every day, whether on the iPad or on my desktop. Perfect ease of use.
Tremendously helpful
by SalamanderJBU on 2015/07/08 02:00
Todoist has been tremendously helpful for keeping me (and my spouse) very organized! Great features with the free version, and for us it was worth subscribing to the premium features. We use the web version as well as the app to keep us on track no matter where we are.
User since 2012

Best to do app out there !
by Mike1111222 on 2015/07/08 00:55
I've tried a lot of the them and this is hands down the best.
Too expensive
by SOVI3T5PY on 2015/07/07 18:25
This app looks great but any features helpful in getting organized requires upgrading.
Functional and pretty

Bloated
by Flak-age on 2015/07/06 14:03
I have to say this app had great promise in the beginning but it seems that with every update it gets slower and more buggy. The automated date parsing is absolutely terrible - useless in 99.9% of all cases. The app now is so slow that it even fails to load its own settings page... The development team is definitely pretty fast, but it seems like the priorities are wrong. I would focus on keeping the app slim and performant and fixing bugs that people complain about rather than introducing more and more features such as Karma (totally useless) which just slow things down ...
My Favorite App!
by just-a-monkey on 2015/07/04 02:34
I am a university professor, and I never seem to have enough time in the day between research, teaching, and service. Todoist is the best task manager app that I've used, and it's the easiest and most elegant solution for me. I keep all of my tasks organized and can see what I need to do every day. I love the new swiping gestures to complete or reschedule tasks. The new themes and animations look super polished, clean, and make using the app super easy and fast. Students often talk to me after class, and if I can't answer a question immediately, I can quickly add these notes to the app and return to them later. I have become more productive and responsive to my students, colleagues, and collaborators requests and tasks. I don't know how I functioned before this app, but I am so happy I have it now to manage my endless tasks and responsibilities.
Promising product from a tone deaf developer.
by Crab_Tree on 2015/07/03 11:47
The one category of App I've spent the most time searching for is the ideal To Do manager. I've tried all the big players and am supporting so many premium subscriptions that I may have to take out a second mortgage. Todoist was easily looking like the clear winner and then . . . You cannot easily hide completed items if they are a sub task with the desktop version, and not at all on the mobile version. It seems like a small item, but totally opposed to the way I work. It is absolutely maddening to have to filter through completed tasks to see what remains to be done. The logical solution would be to give the user the choice. What blew my mind and led me to give such a low rating and go out of my way to write a review, which I hate to do by the way, was the absolute alergy the developers appear to have about even considering this feature. Take some time to visit their feedback board and you will see absolutely rigid responses from the developer to a very long list of users begging for this feature. It's basically, this is the way it works, deal with it. So much for versatility. It's really a shame because I was ready to commit to Todist as my go to App for task management. Now that they've got my money I suppose I'll work around this limitation by keeping a shopping list or two in it and avoid creating anything within a hierarchy while I keep looking. I certainly won't be renewing unless the developer makes a serious attitude change in regards to how it listens to it's customers.

Great product
This App Saved My Life!
by jadeorchid523 on 2015/07/01 21:03
Such a great app that literally saved my life the last 6 months. I'm one of the most disorganized people you'll ever meet, but with this app I've been able to stay on top of my multiple commitments, and increase my productivity immensely! Thank you Todoist! :)
Sencilla, Practica y Efectiva

Simple and effective
by David Hutcherson on 2015/07/01 00:22
It's one of my favorite apps. I love the way it keeps me on track of everything but it also gamifies by tracking your productivity always pushing you to be better.
Recurring notifications working again
by HighTechToid on 2015/06/30 06:36
The app itself is nicely resigned. But, unfortunately this is the only task app that I know of whose reminders and notifications don't work half the time and the support from the company isn't that great about it. Update: 6/29 Recurring notifications working again. Won't give higher rating though because I want to see how long it lasts since this is one aspect of the app that's inconsistent.
Keep up the great work on this.
by Mbldr on 2015/06/30 03:41
10-year plus GTDer. Use Windows laptop and tablet along with iOS devices. This app has a great look and feel along with an intuitive flow. Moving away from 7-years of use of Netcentrics GTD Outlook Addin to Todoist. Any features missed from the GTD Addin are far outweighed by the convenience of having all of this sync across platforms and readily available anywhere. One thing really missed is the ability to add screen shots (not as attachments) to notes as easily as it's done in Outlook. Having notes shown with the task as in Outlook would be a big plus. Read recently in the ToDoist blog about increased tie in with Microsoft Ink-looking forward to that.
very handy tool
by Kyle Pettit on 2015/06/30 03:03
Very useful for staying organized and reminders. I use it daily!
My Go to app
by Palthainon on 2015/06/29 22:24
This earned a place on my dock. I've tried to organize with the reminders app, wunderlist and others without success. I decided to pay for this shortly after downloading it and it has helped immeasurably.
Amazing!
by Profittaker on 2015/06/29 22:10
Best task organizing software out there - hands down!
Almost perfect
by RainHopper on 2015/06/29 00:56
With IFTTT support, you can add tasks with a number of ways. I used Swipes before changing to Todoist. The date and time picker is much more efficient than Todoist. But I am being picky. Good product and well worth the cost for the premium support.
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.
One of the best but still have a few wishes...
by Hotfish2012 on 2015/07/23 17:29
I've tried all sorts of to do list methods and apps. I think the GTD principles are the gold standard. Applying them in different apps is what makes a difference for me. The ease of inputting, updating, rearranging ends up determining how much I use the system. Todoist does a fine job. There are a few improvements that I wish would be made -or perhaps they exist but I have not figured out how to use them, which itself speaks to the need to clarify instructions. First, when I think of a project I need to complete, I start to list all of the steps t need to complete it, often not in proper sequence. The ability to tuck the steps under the project is easy enough but I haven't found the way to resequence the sub steps Also I haven't found how to link a task with an Evernote note. I suppose I need to make a project of figuring those things out, but really should not have to. All in all, this is a really terrific app nonetheless.
Got to give it 5 because it's the best out there, but...
by AAntonow on 2015/05/19 12:49
This is absolutely the best to do software I have seen so far, I have seen many. I've been using Apigo todo list before for three years and it stunk the basic functions but its operation felt like pulling teeth, had bugs, and it's synchronization was flaky. This one works like a dream, synchronizes over multiple platforms perfectly, is designed a beautifully and logically. Yet it is still missing couple of features that you would think they'd figure out over the length of the company's existence: when you sorted by label it doesn't do secondary sorting the project therefore if you are working on the tests that belong to single label you may have to jump from project to project to be able to concentrate on one – this is silly. So, it doesn't have a simple email this list function, although you can give access to anybody for free.
Sync-O'licious
by BeezerDude on 2015/06/28 21:42
Any browser, any device, simple UI, essential feature set for a task manager. Good features for light project management, even for teams, but not truly a project management software solution as such, not yet anyway. I'm not looking for a beefy PM solution so works extremely well for my personal and even work related projects (my work projects are self managed and don't require budget tracking or Gantt charts). I use Todoist with Sunrise Calendar and am very happy. I upgraded to paid version to get templates and other enhanced features. 5 stars for overall execution and current version feature set, less one star for cost. In my opinion, Todoist could gain more subscribers by adding a mid-tier price for the full task related feature set sans file attachment and charge $15/yr. Charge the $25/yr price for file attachment, maybe storage and third party storage retrieval integration as well as deeper current and future PM features. Those are great features to have and build out, but not necessary for all task management users. I've spent way too much time comparing and experimenting with task and task/calendar combos--probably every one in the App Store. Don't bother with the dairy-themed products and folio UI stuff. Those were the old days. Todoist and Sunrise are an unbeatable and inexpensive (totally worth supporting) combo that work beautifully on any device. A must for multiple and cross-platform users.
Works great, shareable, multi-platform, easy
by Kirk032167 on 2014/11/11 22:20
I have an iPad and an iPhone 6+. I'm not sure why everyone is complaining about this app. It works great. It syncs quickly. I can see it fine on my new phone. I find it easier to add items from my iPad, but that is because of the iPhone keyboard (which is certainly not the fault of this app). I can share my personal list with my spouse, and business todos with my business partner. We can assign tasks to one another. I add items from my iPad, then take my phone with me to the store if I am running errands. All synced and ready to complete. I also like the user rating. The more tasks you complete, the more experience your rating goes to (currently I'm a novice, but I am desperately seeking todos to increase my level :D). It does exactly what it advertises, which is help me keep track of and organize my todo lists. Great app. I would recommend it, and do.
A flexible and feature-rich To Do app
by sloppyjack on 2013/09/06 00:44
I have recently come back to Todoist, after the recent updates. I love it. I left Remember the Milk. Why? There are a few things I need from a todo app: 1. Syncs with a good website 2. Simple 3. Flexible 4. Doesn't require a lot of thought to maintain Todoist ticks those requirements, with a pleasant to use experience. The website is great- it presents the most crucial information to you, adding tasks is a cinch, as is keeping as few or as many projects as you'd like. You can also add nifty colors to cue you. I have found that - even while applying GTD principles- I need to change my system occasionally to match my workload. Sometimes I have many folders to segregate tasks (and thinking) by project. Other times, I just want to keep my todos from getting forgotten. Todoist accommodates either. Easily. And, with a variety of views, the app and site allow you to keep the most important actionable info on front of you, when you need it. There is nothing over complicated here- no stars or next actions or whatnot. That means you can create you own system and it will work. And on the web you can drag and drop tasks and projects to reorder them (great) and set your own front page view (mind is P1 + next 7 days due). That could come to the app but I don't miss it.
Replaced so many other tools & Apps
by Dave Seville on 2014/11/20 04:44
After starting out as a trial customer for a short time I have been a premium customer for two years now. Your creativity is the only limitation as to what this program can do for you. This has replaced so many other apps and programs and paper methods that I was using I can't begin to list them all out. Just start using it right away on a simple basis then take some time in setting up how you want to use it and you'll be amazed what it can do. I have sections for business and personal and it's amazing how much more I get done and keep organized by using one premium app like this. I love that it is cross platformed and I can use it on my iPad, computer and iPhone and everything stays in sync. One of the best features I like is that I can have it email and or text me at certain times for tasks that I designate.
No privacy, worthless offline
by GaryQual on 2014/04/28 02:15
As near as I can tell, all of your data is stored in the cloud on third-party serves, not even owned by the developer. The mere fact that the privacy policy is totally silent on the security of this data suggests that not only isn't it secure, so that both they and the unnamed third party can read your files, but the developer doesn't even appreciate the importance of maintaining the security of user data. Before any app can share data, it first has to create it on your own mobile device, so that you can use it. Simple, right? But if you install this app on an iPad without cellular, then get on the bus or subway to work, you're hosed. You can't even get started without logging in, and no network, no login. And what happens to your data if they go out of business? Backup to the close, and sharing with users are both great features. But for an app whose focus is personal data, if it doesn't first work reliably standalone, with no account creation required, it isn't worth trusting the developer with an e-mail address just to get started.
Locks up after several updates
by To do list fanatic on 2014/07/28 09:45
I often need to reschedule tasks that I was unable to complete the previous day. As I go down the list reviewing each task and updating the due date the app will lock up. It is often making my changes but tasks don't visually move until I force the app the restart. It could be that this has been a long time issue but it is getting worse as we build up more list items. It has recently started to being unresponsive to any screen taps. It occasionally continues even after forcing the app to restart. If this continues we will need to look for a different solution. With that said it works great for keeping track of our family's very complex list of to do's. My husband, daughter, and I all use the app. One complaint with sharing projects is that it doesn't display them on the new shared user's screen the same. When it could be critical that the new invited user realize what project it is a part of.

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.
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!
Simple, powerful, and elegant!
by iMacgyver74 on 2015/08/01 16:06
The GTD methodology by David Allen has really worked well for me over the years. I previously used OmniFocus on my Mac and iPhone, but the synchronization wasn’t reliable anymore and the interface became clumsier with each version release. I just started using Todoist two weeks ago and absolutely love it so far! It has all the features I like/wanted in a GTD task manager, and none of the extraneous bells and whistles that most apps tend to add. The synchronization is instant, seamless, and reliable. The developers did a truly wonderful job creating a great user experience for both desktop and mobile that’s practical, helpful, and efficient to use every day. The annual price for the premium version is well worth it if you need a serious task manager you can depend on. Simple, powerful, and elegant sums it up for me!
Great Desktop, Mobile is lacking
by neblotr on 2014/06/07 19:32
Kind of ridiculous as far as layout on the mobile app goes atm. It’s essentially a gigantic outline. No collapsing folders, nothing. As far as layout is concerned, Everyday app does a job orders better than this one, and they’re not even due to come out of beta till next week. I think the problem comes from the fact that they’re currently developing their application for 13 platforms. More or less stretched thin so to speak on development when you do that, or so it seems. Jack of all trades, master of none, as it were. Really needs some serious UI developments for the iOS platform. I’d venture to guess that a majority of the people that use this application do so from an iOS device and abhor the idea of being tethered to their laptop/desktop just because the mobile version is such an incredibly clunky P.O.S. It’s truly only good for a “mirror” of what you’ve entered elsewhere. This I say because: while you can enter tasks in this mobile version, it’s not at all fluid and certainly not enjoyable to enter subtasks for a large project of any real detail. I’m seriously hoping they fix these issues soon, because dollar for dollar, it’s actually cheaper to buy the full omnifocus suite (omnifocus 1 went for 3 years before “2”) than it is to pay for 3 years of todoist premium. They need to stop honing their app for business and start focusing on the individual, as I’m sure they make up the bulk of TD users.
Excellent for motivation
by MStephens1234 on 2015/03/25 19:57
I'm slowly having my palm pilot pried out my hands and this app is helping with that. Things I love: - the ability to focus just on today's tasks - the ability to add labels and view all tasks with those labels - the ability to create separate projects and include (or not) those in with main tasks - the extreme flexibility of how due dates can be input. It can be simple, or It can get pretty complicated. (That's almost like programming) - the tracking of completed tasks. They don't just disappear forever, they go to a karma done list where I can sit and exult over all I got done. - the ability to reorder tasks by dragging them to reflect the order I anticipate doing them. - the ability to create three levels of sub tasks in projects. Things I don't care for: - setting priority on a task makes it rise to the top and stay there. I understand why, but I'd still like to be able to move it around. - i can't see tasks I've set for days farther ahead than 7. I can easily forget I put them in and put them in multiple times. - I can't see how to add notes to tasks. As you can see, these are small quibbles, so I'm mostly quite satisfied with this app. If my productivity for the year matches my productivity over the first three days I've had it, it will $28 well spent.
Great Task Manager
by KingRichard26 on 2014/12/10 00:26
I have been searching for an app that can manage all of my tasks and projects, and this task manager gets the job done. It is the one app that can be integrated with other platforms very well such as gmail or sunrise calendar. It works great on my Mac and iPhone and all of my tasks are in my Todoist no matter what device I use. Ever wish to take an email that you would need to get back to (perhaps because of a lengthy research or response needed,) well in Gmail, there is a button that you can add to your browser which can save your emails as tasks. How about that???!!! It is truly a great task manager and would recommend it for anyone who has a lot of stuff on their plates and wants to quickly and easily jot down a to-do or reminder that they can circle back to when completed.
Love this todo app!
by ahaef on 2014/05/25 21:19
Full disclosure: I did end up subscribing to the premium service, but that's also probably the best endorsement I can give. Love the clean, simple interface for using the lists and checking things off, but still with tons of options when creating or editing a task. It can be as straightforward or complex as you want to make it. The daily email snapshot with reminders of how many things you did, how many you have to do that day, and how many points you have will either keep you hooked or annoy you; if it's the latter, they're easily turned off. Sync is super-fast (one of my complaints with other todo apps) and has never lost one of my tasks. No shared lists and no location-based due dates means this isn't my only todo app, but it's the one I use for all of my tasks!
A few years makes a big difference!
by ImpressedByAfterYou on 2015/04/27 15:36
Tried todoist a few years back when it was web only. I liked the clean look and simplicity of it back then but it was a bit limited as far as functionality. I decided to try it again about a month ago and wow! I'm now actively using it in iPad, iPhone, my Mac, and occasionally on the web. Wherever I am, I'm able to quickly look up my projects and tasks or add new ones. So far everything stays in sync beautifully. When I need to add attachments, I can. If I need to turn a task into a project or a project into a subproject of another subproject, I just drag and drop... And voilá! Really could be much easier to use and I have to say, the product has come a long way in the past few years! Keep up the good work guys!
Great For Collaborative Task Lists
by Edawg83 on 2014/07/12 02:59
I am a firm supporter as Todoist has really helped me get on track with list building. It will require an Internet connection to stay up to date, but it is meant for folks always on the go. At first, I maintained my own lists, and over time I have had to evolve and move them around. This has been very easy and quick to do, which I appreciate. I have expanded my list to incorporate my wife and colleagues at work. It has been a great resource to use collaboratively, and access to my list on my phone, desktop, or laptop have made it a huge plus. The additional features would be nice to haves, but the subscription process seems a bit steep unless more unique value is added. I think Todoist should survey their users to get a better idea of what they would pay for - just my two cents.
Great Wunderlist Replacement
by SVKinAZ on 2015/06/13 18:15
If you’re looking for a new task manager now that Microsoft has acquired Wunderlist, Todoist is it. Not only does it match Wunderlist feature to feature, it also bests Wunderlist’s features in some ways. For example, Todoist’s handling of labels is much better than that of Wunderlist. Cross-platform support is outstanding. I particularly like the e-mail plug-ins for Outlook, Gmail, Postbox, and more. For those needing the Pro version, the cost of Todoist Pro is much cheaper than Wunderlist Pro. My only complaint would be that Todoist keeps more features as part of the Pro upgrade than Wunderlist, but since I’m a Pro user anyway, it doesn’t bother me. Most users won’t need those features. The app’s design is simple, efficient, and effective. Highly recommended.
I've tried them all...
by Dougstump on 2014/12/12 03:57
For an early adopter of productivity apps, the one category in which I've struggled is to-do-list apps. They haven't satisfied my need for simplicity and depth, so I've remained a Franklin-Covey paper planner guy (ironic for someone who relies on his electronic devices to get everything else done). After a week of using this free version, I think I've found the right tool and plan on upgrading to the paid version to get more functionality. Right off the bat, I found the prioritization, categories and flexibility to create tasks and due dates (love how I can key in "every other day" in the browser version for repeat events) highly intuitive. And synchronization between devices is a snap--no waiting around like some other apps. I highly recommend.
Almost perfect
by MiRa : ) on 2015/06/16 11:04
For the past 3 years I used Things as my mobile task manager. I loved the elegant GUI and instant synch with the Mac version. But I use a PC at work and was always looking for a better multi-platform task app with similar elegance and easy of use. I found Todoist and love it. I've used it all week and was impressed with the instant synch across iPhone, Mac and PC. I also found that it integrates well with Outlook, even allowing live emails to be turned into tasks in Todoist. Great!! And I really love the ability to easily indent sub tasks by dragging. This really helps organize work logically for multi-step processes. Until last month, I was frustrated by the lack of two key features missing in Todoist but present in most other task apps like Things: bulk selection and drag-and-drop for labels, date changes and other task features. This really slows things down when you are a power user, and need to reschedule or reprioritize. My dreams were realized in the release of Version 10 for iOS. Bulk changes are now easy. And it is also easy to add tasks between other tasks by "pinching" open a spot in a list, and to indent tasks as subtasks. Todoist is so easy to use that it integrates seamlessly into life on the go or in the office.
No calendar view, but easy to use on many devices
by Surfer806 on 2015/03/02 08:17
My biggest gripe with this is that there isn't a full calendar view. It would be really nice to have a month-long or week-long view to visualize what I have due when. Also REALLY wish there was a "schedule for later" feature so tasks that aren't due immediately would just disappear until later and my to do lists would be less cluttered. I'm an executive assistant so I have 8 million pending tasks at all times and not all are immediate. The main reason I do like and use this app every day is that I can seamlessly use it on my iPad, iPhone, and on the web from anywhere. Super super helpful and love that they don't charge for each device like some other apps do. Also upgrading for the reminders and notes was really worth it for me
Finally found it a great "To Do" organizer
by Rafamendes on 2015/01/03 13:43
I have been searching for an app to help me to organize my "to dos" for a long time. I used the tasks from outlook what was easy to link to emails, but very poor for all other things (project organization, search tools, etc). I liked todoist very much, it is easy to use, cloud and works perfectly on my laptop, iPhone and iPad, giving me efficiency to execute and organize my activities. I only didn't give 5 star because there is no link to outlook or Google mail yet, it would save lot of time if I could mark an email as "follow up" in todoist, also it is complicate to send files. That should create something that I could copy a file from email or or drive and paste in todoist. Other than these items, I like very much the app and are helping me a lot.
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.
Best User Friendly Tool to Learn Collaborative Project Management
by darmok on 2015/05/09 16:41
Pros • Integration with Sunrise calendar app makes it easy to see your complete appointment and task load for a time period so you can avoid overloading • Ease of use simplifies training and increases retention of users • Basic service allows users to learn benefits of collaborative project management, so they can appreciate why the premium option is so worthwhile • Projects, Sub-projects, Tasks and Task Dependency is included with basic service. • Premium includes Custom Filters, Notes, Attachments, Search, and Project Templates Cons • Missing Update view. As changes to tasks are made, it's important to have one place were you can see that history. Something like a social media news stream, but for project and task activity like comments and changes made. The next best service with a strong basic package that helps you show people the value, before paying for premium service is Azendoo. Their app is getting better, but they do not currently allow you to resort tasks with mobile app, only via the web browser. Their interface is also not as clean or user friendly. Todoist it is the best value in collaborative task management.
Clean, consistent, and cross platform
by huwe on 2015/05/30 02:03
I've used paid versions of Omnifocus, Things, ToDo, and several others I don't recall. It's a highly personal tool so the only way I know to do it is get one and live with it for a while and see if you can make it fit your style. Todoist does that for me. I'm mainly in the Apple ecosystem, but still have to use other os's and the web version works great. I do like the native apps for my mac & iPhone, but web access is nice when I'm in another environment. The Zapier integration with Evernote is awesome and I really like their implementation for printing hard copies when I need to. Is it perfect - no, but none of them are. Todoist has a pleasant interface and can be bent to my work style so I'm very happy with it.
Mostly Excellent
by Type1Runner on 2014/10/01 18:30
I really like this app a lot! It provides lots of ways to organize a group tasks. Prioritization is a possibility. Setting due dates is great. Just takes a little bit of time to figure out how to set your dates, especially recurring ones. My one really big complaint is that I paid for the premium version so that I could get push reminders on my phone, and that part of the app is not working. I'm frustrated about that part. If that gets changed and fixed I can change this review. But for now, I'm changing the app I use for task management. I need to push notifications, or I will miss important tasks. I will mention that I contacted the developers for technical support, and they are aware of and are working on the issue. As of today, it still wasn't fixed. So they issued me a refund. I really appreciate that.
Excellent cross platform app
by Dana Piwinski on 2014/12/24 15:17
I've been using for about a year and half. A very solid todo list manager that works equally well on my windows PC Chrome or IE browser, and on my iOS 8 devices. I have many small projects to manage concurrently, with some larger ones going at the same time. This app helps me organize all my projects with project folders and subtasks. It's easy to go through and prioritize tasks daily. I also use the Inbox to just quickly throw in a task that I later file under the appropriate project, and my iPhone lets me do that by just speaking and having that converted into the text for the task. Nice. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the calendar integration, which is being improved. I would like to be able to assign a date range to a task (and subtasks), and have that show up graphically on a calendar. If it could do that, I wouldn't need other tools to do a project work breakdown structure. I paid for the premium version, both for the additional features, but especially to encourage this company to keep working on what I believe is a solid product with even more potential. If you like it, you might do the same.
Well implemented task manager
by Brianthreedee on 2015/01/25 14:44
Being new to the use of task management, I have tried several different apps. My requirements are based on my work force needs, multi platform support, ease of work flow integration, which also means ease of use, and collaboration tools. I've found that most of my needs have been met, but I'm not won over by the outlook integration. My complaint stems from two issues, I am unable to have the calendar sit either below, or atop the plug in, but only to the side. This takes up precious real estate. The second, is that I have to run the plugin, instead of using outlooks task feature. Admittedly my issues might be my own limited understanding and if so I'll gladly change my rating to five stars, but till proven otherwise I'll leave it at four stars.
Finally: Sub Folders in Easy To Use To Do Program
by Hlenow on 2015/06/11 19:07
I have used them all, Omni Focus, Things, and all the rest. For me, the ability to easily build sub folders in To Doist is the thing that got me. I find adding tasks is easy, giving them all the info needed is easy and working with the existing lists just intuitive and easy and complete. I am a lawyer trying to keep track of the many tasks for each of my clients and the many projects for each client. This is the best program for me because of its intuitive interface and deep feature set. I tried hard to love OMni focus, but it just didn't work simply enough for me. Things won't, as a matter of principle, allow sub folders.
A sufferer of ADD lands the perfect app...⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
by Lakahata on 2014/12/08 08:20
...at least that's what the title of my review should be! I've searched high and low for a To-Do app that works with how I work. I've bought, what feels like, every single app you can imagine to help organize my life. From the free ones to the paid ones, all of them grabbed my attention for a few days but we're either too simple, too difficult or just didn't have the necessary components for my lifestyle. Todoist gives me the cross-browser, web-based, app platform I need to keep me from losing my job. 😉😉 That's why I went ahead and upgraded to premium which was never my intent when I bought the app. Thank you Todoist for an incredible tool as well as a great blog!
Best task manager EVER!!
by dragonfly09 on 2015/05/16 16:54
I have used almost ALL of them and been disappointed. This is the first one that I would ever consider paying the full price for. I can write multiple projects, daily and weekly checklists, sub-projects, invite collaborators and manage everything from my phone and desktop integrated with Outlook. Best of all the calendar feature allows you to QUICKLY mark something as today, tomorrow or next week and have a list of items from every project due "today", "tomorrow" and the "next 7 days" show up in their own lists - something maddeningly missing from other task managers. I will be using this product until the day I die. Thanks SO MUCH for creating it.
Easy, intuitive, effective
by MNK94025 on 2015/04/20 15:44
I was skeptical of any to do list app as the act of writing, and the thought time spent crafting my lists helps me process the bigger picture that individual tasks are supporting... But I'm really impressed with how this app has supported the creative-thinking aspects of my time management. Simple yet effective. The ability to easily reorder tasks and prioritize is great. Using it is very intuitive. Only wish there was an easy way to print all open tasks (rather than printing one category at a time ) as I really like having a hard copy of the big picture to muse over. I'm sure I will use this more and more over time and take advantage of all its functionality.
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!
Finally decided to go with a task program!
by TGZebra on 2015/06/11 02:43
I'm an app junkie. I've been using free app of the day programs for years and I have them all from 2Do to Things to Omnifocus. Todoist is the first I've really used for more than a couple of months. I just got tired of having to actually create a task list to learn how to use task programs in the first place. The easy set up and reliable syncing has me on top of everything. Coupled with Clear for simple lists, you can't go wrong. Yes, there are a couple of things I'd like to see changed but they seem very responsive and updates come often. If you are looking for simplicity, sophistication and adaptability, Todoist is the right choice.
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!
Keep up the great work on this.
by Mbldr on 2015/06/30 03:41
10-year plus GTDer. Use Windows laptop and tablet along with iOS devices. This app has a great look and feel along with an intuitive flow. Moving away from 7-years of use of Netcentrics GTD Outlook Addin to Todoist. Any features missed from the GTD Addin are far outweighed by the convenience of having all of this sync across platforms and readily available anywhere. One thing really missed is the ability to add screen shots (not as attachments) to notes as easily as it's done in Outlook. Having notes shown with the task as in Outlook would be a big plus. Read recently in the ToDoist blog about increased tie in with Microsoft Ink-looking forward to that.

Excellent app
by DGParker on 2015/09/05 01:27
I use it across several platforms, Mac and WINDOWS 10....
Love this app

I'm getting so much done. I have never been so productive. Everything is right there on my list. When I have a few odd moments and can't remember what I intended to do next, I just consult Todoist for my next task or project.
Stop emailing me!
by Saschapppppppop on 2015/09/04 11:46
Downloading your app does not give you permission to email me three times a day. Downloader beware.
It is a good app, but...
by Xxxxkstbsla on 2015/09/04 00:09
I love this app, it is the first thing I have found that fits my needs. Except for one thing. Reminders are the most important part of a task manager, and you are making exclusive to the premium feature? Let me just say, this is a good task manager, but if you want your "millions of people," then make reminders free. And yes, this feature bothers me so much I give you only a 3.
I have no clue how I ever lived without this app!
by TruthInRhymes on 2015/09/01 01:24
4500 karma as of today. This app has increased my productivity more than I ever thought possible! I am in constant competition with myself. I love it! It is extremely user friendly and I haven't had any hiccups. My one and only gripe is that I still can't figure out how to keep it from emailing me reminders. This is absurdly annoying due to the volume of emails I get from todoist. Many thanks for a great and super helpful app!
Life is a little easier
by Novaprospektor on 2015/09/01 00:19
I use this for work. Saves my butt daily. I love how It lets me roll things over to the next day without much fuss. Going to pay for all the extra features after the free month. It's awesome.
Excellent app
by Rebern on 2015/08/31 02:19
I have used all of the todo apps for IOS, from the complicated to the most simple. Todoist meets all of my needs and works across all of my devices. They have few minor features that are not intuitive but the leaning curve is quick.
Great app!
by emilet87 on 2015/08/30 17:35
Life saver of an app! If you use it your brain space will be saved from remembering tasks.
Great app

Really well done!
Dependable
by Edrowell on 2015/08/29 14:21
This is a simple app with a simple purpose--to be your personal external memory. I really use this and it relieves the anxiety of forgetting something.
Wonderful
by Dan77776444 on 2015/08/29 12:32
This thing takes the cake. I have tried a lot of programs and they have never met my my needs. This app gets to 95%. A few requests: - Option to have app open immediately to inbox and/or quick add button in app that auto adds to inbox (when on the go don't have time to push multiple buttons). -Deferral statistics - having feedback as to what is being differed (which projects, frequency, etc.) would provide feedback to problem solve and improve. -Start dates (I know there is some around this but not complete). Keep up the wonderful work
Amazing! Perfect for work and personal use
by chewy1319 on 2015/08/29 02:11
Great app, comprehensive, responsive and so user friendly. In love. I'll never use another to do list ever.
Lots of promise
by DMP5 on 2015/08/27 03:37
So far so good in terms of helping me keep track of all my life stuff. Sort of wish there was a bit more of a "manual" to figure out all the UI features, but googling for answers has not failed me yet, and is not enough to knock down the rating, as I'll learn these things through use.
Great!
by bfrostieone on 2015/08/27 03:04
Great. Do need to pay for some key features.
Fantastic app
by M.E. - chi on 2015/08/27 02:01

Love!!!

Great to do app. Best one I've used
Love this app!
by janeson59 on 2015/08/25 03:27
Todoist is easily the most versatile and intuitive list keeping and reminder app I've used - and I've used a lot of them. I have the app on all my iDevices, as well as having both the app and the Chrome extension on my MacBooks. I fell in love when I found that I turn an email into a task and show the tasks on my calendar. It's easy to group, prioritize, schedule, and check off tasks. The karma points are a nice touch, too.
I love this app.
by 3llyn on 2015/08/24 17:58
Features that keep me happy: uploading attachments to to-dos non-locally (PDFs get links that you can access anywhere), tag everything, view tasks due in the next 7 days, custom filters. Also the app is beautiful! I'd like to be able to use start dates on tasks in the future.
Great app!
by user1101100111 on 2015/08/24 06:15
App works well. Very convenient to use.

I like it.
Simple, intuitive & powerful
by Jcktn on 2015/08/22 03:42
I really like the interface. Easy to use. Has all the features I need. Now that you can edit multiple items it's even better.
Todoist
by Ride the Rockies on 2015/08/22 01:42
I've been a long time fan of GTD and now to see it integrated in an app is awesome! I love how it works across various platforms. No more need to use different apps, it all can be done on Todoist. The syncing across platforms is awesome and integration with IFTTT is great! Haven't forgotten my brellie once!
Simple and effective
by sara_g29 on 2015/08/21 21:50
I love the workflow of this app. I use the mobile app in conjunction with the main website, the app is great for adding "inbox" tasks when I think of them on the go. Some premium features seem like they should be free, like being able to filter by project AND due date. So I'm docking one star. Overall, I'd recommend this app.
Great UI
by Tom10135 on 2015/08/20 13:51
Use it every day.
My Favorite!!
by TommyBoy624 on 2015/08/20 03:31
This is one of my favorite apps on my phone! It's simple to use and helps me keep track of all my daily duties.
fantastic task management app
by cmr4578 on 2015/08/19 05:36
better than any other task manager
Simple and Complicated
by odellcs on 2015/08/18 15:12
I really like how todoist is simple when you get started and you can make it as advanced as you want. I've even done some ifttt things. My one complaint is its lack of team based features.
Essential part of my productivity workflow
by B.Obama on 2015/08/18 01:17
This is one of those apps I have on every device and use everyday. I'm soooo close to springing for the premium version. As a personal task list tracker, you can't beat this app. I actually wish I had more people to share projects with!
Best to do list out there!
by Jenny 615 on 2015/08/16 03:34
The premium version is worth the money if you've got the work. It lets you implement the GTD system by using the labels. I've tried wunderlist and many others - this is the best.
I actually use it
by tebjmd on 2015/08/13 22:16
I find this refreshingly simple and easy to use. I commend it to your service. It serves me well
Best task management app out there
by kimmica98 on 2015/08/13 16:47
I've used (and paid for premium subscriptions) for many task management apps over the years, but none of them have matched Todoist's simplicity, sync features, and availability on multiple platforms. Keep up the great work, Todoist team!
Save Your Money
by BlondieZX on 2015/08/12 05:58
I paid for the yearly subscription (whatever that is), which was a complete waste of money. The app is neither intuitive nor user-friendly. While it supposedly has many helpful features, I could not find them. I'm now happily using Errands, a much more useful app.
Epic!!
by doneil14 on 2015/08/11 21:59
Best app I have gotten in a long time.
Best task and project management app out there!

This has became my favorite app and I've stuck with it longer than any organizing tool in the past! The Karma feature adds a fun kick to it!
Excellent app

It helps to keep track of things to do and much more
Simple yet powerful.
by Fueled by God on 2015/08/09 22:05
Simple to use with great functionality. It worked for me better than a bunch of other apps I downloaded. I like the desktop sync as well.
Scam ,,, told u free then you need to upgrade it to use it
by Muntherhabeeb on 2015/08/08 04:58
Full scam
Great task manager
by KurtH54 on 2015/08/08 02:44
Todoist has replaced outlook tasks for my business environment. I like the simplicity and the number of clients for different platforms. The outlook plugin is essential for getting rid of the outlook tasks. There's a few features I'd like to see such as a more standard date picker for setting recurring appointments. Overall it's the best personal task manager I've found for a busy business person.
I've given up!
by SmashingSensation on 2015/08/08 01:12
Save your money and time: use OMNIFOCUS instead. I don't understand why it's so difficult to listen to your customers: We want START/DEFER dates! I mean just Google "Todoist start dates" and you'll find hundreds of forums BEGGING for start dates. I even posted one and the same staff member always responds with the exact same response: He gives you this terrible workaround to use start dates as repeating task! The most annoying thing ever. I wish I could use todoist, but they don't care about us!! I even offered to pay $100 per year just to get start dates! Now they're getting nothing from me, including hundreds of other users.
HUGE fan
by Cogswell N.J. on 2015/08/07 20:42
Not really a review writer but I needed to help get the word out there. I have tried many different task management apps but have yet to find the right one until now. The Outlook integration and cross platform support is brilliant. The premium cost is a little steep, but I went for it and am very glad I did. All the functionality is fantastic! I even love the Apple Watch app!! I highly recommend you give this a try!
Not the best free option
by Dizfunctions on 2015/08/07 15:26
If you don't plan on using all the features that Todoist premium provided, then go with Wunderlist. If offers far more features for free than Todoist does. However, for people interested in using premium, then Todoist is the better choice with the best multi platform support and the best task organization tools.
My favorite app next to evernote
by Jonathan190 on 2015/08/07 04:20
I use this app everyday with great confidence in it's effectiveness for me. I am challenged to stick to what I say. I have due dates up to 9 months away! It is the cross between my written goals and what I have to do right this moment.
Perfect task application
by Fetzxyz on 2015/08/05 20:09
Makes it easy to create tasks. Keeps you focused on what's next. Don't know how I got along without it. Tried Omni Focus but no web or windows access.
Simple, powerful, and elegant!
by iMacgyver74 on 2015/08/01 16:06
The GTD methodology by David Allen has really worked well for me over the years. I previously used OmniFocus on my Mac and iPhone, but the synchronization wasn’t reliable anymore and the interface became clumsier with each version release. I just started using Todoist two weeks ago and absolutely love it so far! It has all the features I like/wanted in a GTD task manager, and none of the extraneous bells and whistles that most apps tend to add. The synchronization is instant, seamless, and reliable. The developers did a truly wonderful job creating a great user experience for both desktop and mobile that’s practical, helpful, and efficient to use every day. The annual price for the premium version is well worth it if you need a serious task manager you can depend on. Simple, powerful, and elegant sums it up for me!
Helps build good habits
by Time To Upgrade on 2015/08/01 04:55
I've used this app every single day for the last 3 months, and I've noticed an overall increase in my productivity both at work and at home. It helps keep you organized and focused on the task at hand.
Solid app

Does everything I need
Just want sole with reminders
by Glarge on 2015/07/31 14:13
Looks good if you need to pay for a premium to do list app - I just wanted to make a quick to do list on the go and set a few reminders - not paying $30 for that
I wanted to like it
by thnyc on 2015/07/31 13:46
The web version is beautiful. The widget is beautiful. But the app listing of todos is ugly with so much white space. They can fit 11 items in the screen with the widget (if the used the entire screen). But the layout in the app only show 7 and my todos are not long. Any.Do, wunderlist, and 2Do show 10-11 todos with the same space. I want the multiple platforms and left Omnisync because there was no browser entry. If my view looked like the widget, I would stay. But I have 100s of todos and seeing them 7 at a time doesn't even show me today's.
A powerful cross-device app
by heresjimmyjam on 2015/07/31 02:55
I discovered this app at a great time, as I had just picked up GTD by David Allen. I can't recommend this app enough! It works great in both my professional and personal life.
Excellent app
by Faganmw on 2015/07/30 14:00
I'm still working On my strategy but the app is efficient and comprehensive. Syncs with Google
Great todo app
by Tvdthanh on 2015/07/30 02:23
Intuitive interface, cross platform compatibility, and nested items all in the the free version. I use this everyday and it helps me get things done.
Great Utility
by Ms. Mudshark on 2015/07/29 00:50
I am currently not working due to an injury. Todoist keeps me focused and accountable. No tech problems just a great tool.
Great task management app
by Rick the potter on 2015/07/28 23:32
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.
Extremely useful !
by Sbear137 on 2015/07/28 23:26
Great tool for users who are easily forgetful
Powerful, Simple and Mine!
by G_Bone on 2015/07/28 02:03
Why four stars? Because you can not create a note while creating a task. You must first make the task, then go back and attach a note; inefficient and needs to be corrected (I have reached out to Tech Support). Outside of that... awesome! Simple, easy, powerful with perfect syncing between all iOS and Mac apps. After years of using one of the "original iOS todo apps," I've switched to Todoist for good!
The best Todo app I've used, so far...
by foss4us on 2015/07/27 16:39
I've tried numerous Todo apps over the years... first Remember the Milk (back when it was still being actively developed), Todo.ly, Tracks (an GTD-focused open-source, self-hosted web-based app written w/ Rails), Google Tasks (which isn't really a task manager, IMO), a few not worth mentioning, and more recently, Things for Mac, JIRA, Asana, Swipe, Timeful (now owned by Google) and Todoist. Of these, Todoist has been my favorite. It works well w/ the GTD-ish system I use, has all the usual features plus some unique ones (although many are limited to the paid version), and it's easily extensible through IFTTT and via it's own API. The "Karma" feature is an especially clever implementation of behavioral modification/conditioning through gamification. Even w/ the handicapped free version, Todoist is still the best todo app I've used. I'm considering upgrading to the Premium version for some of the "hostage" features, but there are a few things I'd like to see before I do that: (1) Todoist Premium is priced at $28.99/yr. Yes, some apps charge more. Things for Mac charges an extortionate $48.99 (so I ditched them after having been loyal since the beta). Come on, it's a todo app. You didn't cure Ebola. For $48.99 I'd expect someone to actually do my laundry, etc. I'd hate to ditch Todoist though. Considering TickTick has nearly all the features of Todoist and only charges $19.99, it would be nice if Todoist lowered their price. They don't even offer a Premium Trial, although their ToS allows it. But because I believe Todoist predates TickTick, and because it looks like TickTick is — let's say — "greatly influenced" by Todoist, I'm giving Todoist time to make the right decision before I jump ship. (2) I'd like to know what security measures Todoist takes. A todo app normally carries some very personal information... it's only a matter of time until a big one is breached. I expect my data to be encrypted both in transit and at rest. I haven't examined the traffic yet to ensure they're at least using SSL, but I'm adding that to my todo list. ;) Auth is handled via Google sign-in, so I know that much is safe, but I'd like them to be transparent about everything else. They use third parties for serving/actually storing the data. While they say in the TOS/Privacy Policy that the user retains all rights to their data, they noticeably do not name the partners (probably AWS or Google), nor do they state that data is only stored in encrypted (or even hashed) form. Rather — regarding security — they only state: When we transfer and receive certain types of sensitive information we redirect visitors to a SSL secure server. "Certain types of sensitive information," worryingly, seems to indicate that the large majority of data isn't encrypted at all. You may be asking, "So what if some black hat gets my grocery list?" or "What do you have to hide?" First off, NOYB. Secondly, if I have a todo item about scheduling — just for argument — an abortion, that would be pretty sensitive. I'm not picking on Todoist. Most of these cloud todo app are similarly vague, at best, or neglectful, at worst. For the price of Premium, I'd like security I can feel confident about. (3) I'm very tired of todo-app vendor lock-in. If I truly retain all rights to my data, I should be able to export it, en masse, at will (see Facebook's example). (4) The weakness of Todoist (and most other todo-apps featuring collaboration) is a lack of means to facilitate cross-app usage. Wouldn't it be nice if you could share tasks w/ someone who uses another app? Of course! I think every todo-app user wishes that, but doesn't want to do w/ getting a new app. Todoist could improve their service by allowing users to download or directly export data to other todo apps, provided that those 3rd parties agree to build interoperability w/ Todoist. There are a myriad number of ways it could be done if they wanted to do it in a fair, efficient, federated, app-agnostic way (call me for specifics, Todoist). I truly believe Todoist has nothing to fear from this, since they're the best. They could really be a leader here, and will probably even gain new users in the process.'
Simple but powerful
by Kt kapow on 2015/07/27 15:47
Best to do list app I've tried. And I've tried a lot. I like that Is supported on my desktop as well
Great App!
by Malscone on 2015/07/26 17:19
(When) I use this, it's a very powerful tool. It syncs flawlessly with my sunshine calendar app, the reminders are useful, and it feels good to check things off my lists!
One of the best but still have a few wishes...
by Hotfish2012 on 2015/07/23 17:29
I've tried all sorts of to do list methods and apps. I think the GTD principles are the gold standard. Applying them in different apps is what makes a difference for me. The ease of inputting, updating, rearranging ends up determining how much I use the system. Todoist does a fine job. There are a few improvements that I wish would be made -or perhaps they exist but I have not figured out how to use them, which itself speaks to the need to clarify instructions. First, when I think of a project I need to complete, I start to list all of the steps t need to complete it, often not in proper sequence. The ability to tuck the steps under the project is easy enough but I haven't found the way to resequence the sub steps Also I haven't found how to link a task with an Evernote note. I suppose I need to make a project of figuring those things out, but really should not have to. All in all, this is a really terrific app nonetheless.
Amazing application!!
by AWM-AllynJ on 2015/07/21 23:31
I do find that this application works even better if your paying for the subscription.
Great app if you make a habit of using it
by wehorak on 2015/07/21 05:14
I'm using the free version and that's more than enough to help me get stuff done. I've been using it for a few months now and I check it a couple of times each day to keep the day on track. The only downside to it is my use of it: if I didn't get into the habit of using it then I would've abandoned it long ago.
This tool completes my productivity suite of apps.
by CoCEvangelist on 2015/07/20 00:50
With Evernote and Dropbox, Todoist completes my suite of tools. As a paid user, no crashes. Great UI, simple options, text and email reminders and other features to enhance productivity. I love the encouragement from the Karma scores.
Excellent list-maker & reminder
by Vajra Sky on 2015/07/19 23:41
Used this app now for a semester, and love it. Not too complicated, but detailed enough to accommodate individual needs. Great UI, intuitive, and already answered a question very quickly. Great support. Highly recommended.
Such A Helpful Tool
by ADabasinskas on 2015/07/17 03:58
I downloaded the app for my work computer first, and man what a productive way to organize my time! After enjoying how the app was set up I shortly downloaded it to my iPhone as well. I love that the two lists sync with each other. The only thing I wish you could do was drag the list into a particular set, instead of just the flag severity system.
Better than OmniFocus!
by fitfatlington on 2015/07/16 21:29
I'd been an OF user for years, but realized I wasn't using the 'power' features and was getting tired of the interface which really makes it seem like one *should*. Todoist has much better background sync, is a lighter-weight application, and motivates nicely without being overbearing. It's great to have tags and to be able to email fully elaborated tasks into specific projects - so far, everything works as advertised, and it's helping me manage all my academia-related commitments with ease.
Needs ability to change default time duration
by Andres13 on 2015/07/16 19:01
Please change it to where the default time duration will be fixed.. Paid for this app and am not happy.

AWESOME!!!
by supwiddat on 2015/07/14 15:59
I've tried them all, yet vowed to never pay for a "Do" app. This one changed my mind with its integrations and functionally. I actually get things done rather than keep adding things to the list and watch it grow. I concur that you need a published privacy policy, though, but since the payment is done through the Apple Store and not directly to the service, it seems to be more of a formality.
Works for me
by Aga3 on 2015/07/14 01:44
I recently started to implement some GTD practices in my life. Todoist is helping tremendously, and is a pleasure to use. I will likely upgrade to premium before long.
The Final Winner
by ScottyT79 on 2015/07/13 09:46
I've used so many apps in the pursuit of organization and task management that by now it's an absurd obsession. Todoist wins, finally. I've used it for 5 months now while none of the others lasted more than a few weeks. It's strengths are: -Simplicity of task entry and edits, especially it's fantastic repeat reminders which use real language to input -Cross platform -Gorgeous design -Many organization labels and options (tags, projects, and priorities) -Reminders options (notification, email, sms) The only thing I wish was that you could have multiple folders or "lists of lists" so that I could also keep my home reminders in the same app more easily. This is not a big deal at all, and I recognize that you have to balance features with ease of use. This is, in my vast experience, the best software for to do lists that exists today.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
by Mojack81 on 2015/07/10 02:14
I had been using Daytimer paper calendaring products since the 1980's. I got tired of writing to do items from one day to another. I decided to look for an app to do this for me. I checked online for the best to do apps and saw a review of Todoist. I downloaded it and have been using it for a couple months now. It is amazing! I can not only calendar to do items, but I can put them into separate categories. I also love the fact that you can input recurring events. I would definitely recommend this app!
Too many bugs
by Choreilly on 2015/07/09 20:27
I really want to love this app. But unfortunately there are way too many annoying bugs. Too many to mention. I'm going to have to consider trying another todo app. Too bad.
Massive Productivity Booster
by TheRainParade on 2015/07/09 04:41
The UI is clean and intuitive; your lists can be as simple or complex and multi-leveled as you like. The simplicity of the functions themselves allow great diversity in how they can be used. I use this to create and manage my grocery list, to track my productivity at work, to build good habits, to keep up with my housework, and even to remember to call my mom and catch up with friends. Crossing things off the lists and the Karma function really helps me feel good about the progress I make, too! Lastly, I love how it integrates with Sunrise calendar so I can see date-specific tasks at a glance. Highly recommend this app.
awesome
by kelizvonm on 2015/07/09 00:46
this app is my favorite for productivity - and the interface is so easy and satisfying!
Love it, but desperate for templates.
by Alexa Rosario on 2015/07/08 22:48
New Review: Apple Watch app works beautifully. With WatchOS 2, can't wait to have Todoist as a complication on my watch and a native app. Past Review (STILL APPLIES): I'm a pro user and SO many things that were executed flawlessly, but it's SERIOUSLY missing TEMPLATES/WORKFLOWS (pleaseeee!)... The ability to insert a workflow to a project for team work is imperative. Can't run my team without that... But this is perfect otherwise.
My go-to
by mamcart on 2015/07/08 17:34
I love this app and use it every day, whether on the iPad or on my desktop. Perfect ease of use.
Tremendously helpful
by SalamanderJBU on 2015/07/08 02:00
Todoist has been tremendously helpful for keeping me (and my spouse) very organized! Great features with the free version, and for us it was worth subscribing to the premium features. We use the web version as well as the app to keep us on track no matter where we are.

I have to say this app had great promise in the beginning but it seems that with every update it gets slower and more buggy. The automated date parsing is absolutely terrible - useless in 99.9% of all cases. The app now is so slow that it even fails to load its own settings page... The development team is definitely pretty fast, but it seems like the priorities are wrong. I would focus on keeping the app slim and performant and fixing bugs that people complain about rather than introducing more and more features such as Karma (totally useless) which just slow things down ...
My Favorite App!
by just-a-monkey on 2015/07/04 02:34
I am a university professor, and I never seem to have enough time in the day between research, teaching, and service. Todoist is the best task manager app that I've used, and it's the easiest and most elegant solution for me. I keep all of my tasks organized and can see what I need to do every day. I love the new swiping gestures to complete or reschedule tasks. The new themes and animations look super polished, clean, and make using the app super easy and fast. Students often talk to me after class, and if I can't answer a question immediately, I can quickly add these notes to the app and return to them later. I have become more productive and responsive to my students, colleagues, and collaborators requests and tasks. I don't know how I functioned before this app, but I am so happy I have it now to manage my endless tasks and responsibilities.
Promising product from a tone deaf developer.
by Crab_Tree on 2015/07/03 11:47
The one category of App I've spent the most time searching for is the ideal To Do manager. I've tried all the big players and am supporting so many premium subscriptions that I may have to take out a second mortgage. Todoist was easily looking like the clear winner and then . . . You cannot easily hide completed items if they are a sub task with the desktop version, and not at all on the mobile version. It seems like a small item, but totally opposed to the way I work. It is absolutely maddening to have to filter through completed tasks to see what remains to be done. The logical solution would be to give the user the choice. What blew my mind and led me to give such a low rating and go out of my way to write a review, which I hate to do by the way, was the absolute alergy the developers appear to have about even considering this feature. Take some time to visit their feedback board and you will see absolutely rigid responses from the developer to a very long list of users begging for this feature. It's basically, this is the way it works, deal with it. So much for versatility. It's really a shame because I was ready to commit to Todist as my go to App for task management. Now that they've got my money I suppose I'll work around this limitation by keeping a shopping list or two in it and avoid creating anything within a hierarchy while I keep looking. I certainly won't be renewing unless the developer makes a serious attitude change in regards to how it listens to it's customers.

Great product
This App Saved My Life!
by jadeorchid523 on 2015/07/01 21:03
Such a great app that literally saved my life the last 6 months. I'm one of the most disorganized people you'll ever meet, but with this app I've been able to stay on top of my multiple commitments, and increase my productivity immensely! Thank you Todoist! :)
Sencilla, Practica y Efectiva

Una aplicación para administrar una lista de tareas desde sencilla hasta compleja, contemplando todas las funcionalidades necesarias para una persona productiva.
Simple and effective
by David Hutcherson on 2015/07/01 00:22
It's one of my favorite apps. I love the way it keeps me on track of everything but it also gamifies by tracking your productivity always pushing you to be better.
Recurring notifications working again
by HighTechToid on 2015/06/30 06:36
The app itself is nicely resigned. But, unfortunately this is the only task app that I know of whose reminders and notifications don't work half the time and the support from the company isn't that great about it. Update: 6/29 Recurring notifications working again. Won't give higher rating though because I want to see how long it lasts since this is one aspect of the app that's inconsistent.
Keep up the great work on this.
by Mbldr on 2015/06/30 03:41
10-year plus GTDer. Use Windows laptop and tablet along with iOS devices. This app has a great look and feel along with an intuitive flow. Moving away from 7-years of use of Netcentrics GTD Outlook Addin to Todoist. Any features missed from the GTD Addin are far outweighed by the convenience of having all of this sync across platforms and readily available anywhere. One thing really missed is the ability to add screen shots (not as attachments) to notes as easily as it's done in Outlook. Having notes shown with the task as in Outlook would be a big plus. Read recently in the ToDoist blog about increased tie in with Microsoft Ink-looking forward to that.
very handy tool
by Kyle Pettit on 2015/06/30 03:03
Very useful for staying organized and reminders. I use it daily!
My Go to app
by Palthainon on 2015/06/29 22:24
This earned a place on my dock. I've tried to organize with the reminders app, wunderlist and others without success. I decided to pay for this shortly after downloading it and it has helped immeasurably.
Amazing!
by Profittaker on 2015/06/29 22:10
Best task organizing software out there - hands down!
Almost perfect
by RainHopper on 2015/06/29 00:56
With IFTTT support, you can add tasks with a number of ways. I used Swipes before changing to Todoist. The date and time picker is much more efficient than Todoist. But I am being picky. Good product and well worth the cost for the premium support.
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.
One of the best but still have a few wishes...
by Hotfish2012 on 2015/07/23 17:29
I've tried all sorts of to do list methods and apps. I think the GTD principles are the gold standard. Applying them in different apps is what makes a difference for me. The ease of inputting, updating, rearranging ends up determining how much I use the system. Todoist does a fine job. There are a few improvements that I wish would be made -or perhaps they exist but I have not figured out how to use them, which itself speaks to the need to clarify instructions. First, when I think of a project I need to complete, I start to list all of the steps t need to complete it, often not in proper sequence. The ability to tuck the steps under the project is easy enough but I haven't found the way to resequence the sub steps Also I haven't found how to link a task with an Evernote note. I suppose I need to make a project of figuring those things out, but really should not have to. All in all, this is a really terrific app nonetheless.
Got to give it 5 because it's the best out there, but...
by AAntonow on 2015/05/19 12:49
This is absolutely the best to do software I have seen so far, I have seen many. I've been using Apigo todo list before for three years and it stunk the basic functions but its operation felt like pulling teeth, had bugs, and it's synchronization was flaky. This one works like a dream, synchronizes over multiple platforms perfectly, is designed a beautifully and logically. Yet it is still missing couple of features that you would think they'd figure out over the length of the company's existence: when you sorted by label it doesn't do secondary sorting the project therefore if you are working on the tests that belong to single label you may have to jump from project to project to be able to concentrate on one – this is silly. So, it doesn't have a simple email this list function, although you can give access to anybody for free.
Sync-O'licious
by BeezerDude on 2015/06/28 21:42
Any browser, any device, simple UI, essential feature set for a task manager. Good features for light project management, even for teams, but not truly a project management software solution as such, not yet anyway. I'm not looking for a beefy PM solution so works extremely well for my personal and even work related projects (my work projects are self managed and don't require budget tracking or Gantt charts). I use Todoist with Sunrise Calendar and am very happy. I upgraded to paid version to get templates and other enhanced features. 5 stars for overall execution and current version feature set, less one star for cost. In my opinion, Todoist could gain more subscribers by adding a mid-tier price for the full task related feature set sans file attachment and charge $15/yr. Charge the $25/yr price for file attachment, maybe storage and third party storage retrieval integration as well as deeper current and future PM features. Those are great features to have and build out, but not necessary for all task management users. I've spent way too much time comparing and experimenting with task and task/calendar combos--probably every one in the App Store. Don't bother with the dairy-themed products and folio UI stuff. Those were the old days. Todoist and Sunrise are an unbeatable and inexpensive (totally worth supporting) combo that work beautifully on any device. A must for multiple and cross-platform users.
Works great, shareable, multi-platform, easy
by Kirk032167 on 2014/11/11 22:20
I have an iPad and an iPhone 6+. I'm not sure why everyone is complaining about this app. It works great. It syncs quickly. I can see it fine on my new phone. I find it easier to add items from my iPad, but that is because of the iPhone keyboard (which is certainly not the fault of this app). I can share my personal list with my spouse, and business todos with my business partner. We can assign tasks to one another. I add items from my iPad, then take my phone with me to the store if I am running errands. All synced and ready to complete. I also like the user rating. The more tasks you complete, the more experience your rating goes to (currently I'm a novice, but I am desperately seeking todos to increase my level :D). It does exactly what it advertises, which is help me keep track of and organize my todo lists. Great app. I would recommend it, and do.
A flexible and feature-rich To Do app
by sloppyjack on 2013/09/06 00:44
I have recently come back to Todoist, after the recent updates. I love it. I left Remember the Milk. Why? There are a few things I need from a todo app: 1. Syncs with a good website 2. Simple 3. Flexible 4. Doesn't require a lot of thought to maintain Todoist ticks those requirements, with a pleasant to use experience. The website is great- it presents the most crucial information to you, adding tasks is a cinch, as is keeping as few or as many projects as you'd like. You can also add nifty colors to cue you. I have found that - even while applying GTD principles- I need to change my system occasionally to match my workload. Sometimes I have many folders to segregate tasks (and thinking) by project. Other times, I just want to keep my todos from getting forgotten. Todoist accommodates either. Easily. And, with a variety of views, the app and site allow you to keep the most important actionable info on front of you, when you need it. There is nothing over complicated here- no stars or next actions or whatnot. That means you can create you own system and it will work. And on the web you can drag and drop tasks and projects to reorder them (great) and set your own front page view (mind is P1 + next 7 days due). That could come to the app but I don't miss it.
Replaced so many other tools & Apps
by Dave Seville on 2014/11/20 04:44
After starting out as a trial customer for a short time I have been a premium customer for two years now. Your creativity is the only limitation as to what this program can do for you. This has replaced so many other apps and programs and paper methods that I was using I can't begin to list them all out. Just start using it right away on a simple basis then take some time in setting up how you want to use it and you'll be amazed what it can do. I have sections for business and personal and it's amazing how much more I get done and keep organized by using one premium app like this. I love that it is cross platformed and I can use it on my iPad, computer and iPhone and everything stays in sync. One of the best features I like is that I can have it email and or text me at certain times for tasks that I designate.
No privacy, worthless offline
by GaryQual on 2014/04/28 02:15
As near as I can tell, all of your data is stored in the cloud on third-party serves, not even owned by the developer. The mere fact that the privacy policy is totally silent on the security of this data suggests that not only isn't it secure, so that both they and the unnamed third party can read your files, but the developer doesn't even appreciate the importance of maintaining the security of user data. Before any app can share data, it first has to create it on your own mobile device, so that you can use it. Simple, right? But if you install this app on an iPad without cellular, then get on the bus or subway to work, you're hosed. You can't even get started without logging in, and no network, no login. And what happens to your data if they go out of business? Backup to the close, and sharing with users are both great features. But for an app whose focus is personal data, if it doesn't first work reliably standalone, with no account creation required, it isn't worth trusting the developer with an e-mail address just to get started.
Locks up after several updates
by To do list fanatic on 2014/07/28 09:45
I often need to reschedule tasks that I was unable to complete the previous day. As I go down the list reviewing each task and updating the due date the app will lock up. It is often making my changes but tasks don't visually move until I force the app the restart. It could be that this has been a long time issue but it is getting worse as we build up more list items. It has recently started to being unresponsive to any screen taps. It occasionally continues even after forcing the app to restart. If this continues we will need to look for a different solution. With that said it works great for keeping track of our family's very complex list of to do's. My husband, daughter, and I all use the app. One complaint with sharing projects is that it doesn't display them on the new shared user's screen the same. When it could be critical that the new invited user realize what project it is a part of.

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.
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!
Simple, powerful, and elegant!
by iMacgyver74 on 2015/08/01 16:06
The GTD methodology by David Allen has really worked well for me over the years. I previously used OmniFocus on my Mac and iPhone, but the synchronization wasn’t reliable anymore and the interface became clumsier with each version release. I just started using Todoist two weeks ago and absolutely love it so far! It has all the features I like/wanted in a GTD task manager, and none of the extraneous bells and whistles that most apps tend to add. The synchronization is instant, seamless, and reliable. The developers did a truly wonderful job creating a great user experience for both desktop and mobile that’s practical, helpful, and efficient to use every day. The annual price for the premium version is well worth it if you need a serious task manager you can depend on. Simple, powerful, and elegant sums it up for me!
Great Desktop, Mobile is lacking
by neblotr on 2014/06/07 19:32
Kind of ridiculous as far as layout on the mobile app goes atm. It’s essentially a gigantic outline. No collapsing folders, nothing. As far as layout is concerned, Everyday app does a job orders better than this one, and they’re not even due to come out of beta till next week. I think the problem comes from the fact that they’re currently developing their application for 13 platforms. More or less stretched thin so to speak on development when you do that, or so it seems. Jack of all trades, master of none, as it were. Really needs some serious UI developments for the iOS platform. I’d venture to guess that a majority of the people that use this application do so from an iOS device and abhor the idea of being tethered to their laptop/desktop just because the mobile version is such an incredibly clunky P.O.S. It’s truly only good for a “mirror” of what you’ve entered elsewhere. This I say because: while you can enter tasks in this mobile version, it’s not at all fluid and certainly not enjoyable to enter subtasks for a large project of any real detail. I’m seriously hoping they fix these issues soon, because dollar for dollar, it’s actually cheaper to buy the full omnifocus suite (omnifocus 1 went for 3 years before “2”) than it is to pay for 3 years of todoist premium. They need to stop honing their app for business and start focusing on the individual, as I’m sure they make up the bulk of TD users.
Excellent for motivation
by MStephens1234 on 2015/03/25 19:57
I'm slowly having my palm pilot pried out my hands and this app is helping with that. Things I love: - the ability to focus just on today's tasks - the ability to add labels and view all tasks with those labels - the ability to create separate projects and include (or not) those in with main tasks - the extreme flexibility of how due dates can be input. It can be simple, or It can get pretty complicated. (That's almost like programming) - the tracking of completed tasks. They don't just disappear forever, they go to a karma done list where I can sit and exult over all I got done. - the ability to reorder tasks by dragging them to reflect the order I anticipate doing them. - the ability to create three levels of sub tasks in projects. Things I don't care for: - setting priority on a task makes it rise to the top and stay there. I understand why, but I'd still like to be able to move it around. - i can't see tasks I've set for days farther ahead than 7. I can easily forget I put them in and put them in multiple times. - I can't see how to add notes to tasks. As you can see, these are small quibbles, so I'm mostly quite satisfied with this app. If my productivity for the year matches my productivity over the first three days I've had it, it will $28 well spent.
Great Task Manager
by KingRichard26 on 2014/12/10 00:26
I have been searching for an app that can manage all of my tasks and projects, and this task manager gets the job done. It is the one app that can be integrated with other platforms very well such as gmail or sunrise calendar. It works great on my Mac and iPhone and all of my tasks are in my Todoist no matter what device I use. Ever wish to take an email that you would need to get back to (perhaps because of a lengthy research or response needed,) well in Gmail, there is a button that you can add to your browser which can save your emails as tasks. How about that???!!! It is truly a great task manager and would recommend it for anyone who has a lot of stuff on their plates and wants to quickly and easily jot down a to-do or reminder that they can circle back to when completed.
Love this todo app!
by ahaef on 2014/05/25 21:19
Full disclosure: I did end up subscribing to the premium service, but that's also probably the best endorsement I can give. Love the clean, simple interface for using the lists and checking things off, but still with tons of options when creating or editing a task. It can be as straightforward or complex as you want to make it. The daily email snapshot with reminders of how many things you did, how many you have to do that day, and how many points you have will either keep you hooked or annoy you; if it's the latter, they're easily turned off. Sync is super-fast (one of my complaints with other todo apps) and has never lost one of my tasks. No shared lists and no location-based due dates means this isn't my only todo app, but it's the one I use for all of my tasks!
A few years makes a big difference!
by ImpressedByAfterYou on 2015/04/27 15:36
Tried todoist a few years back when it was web only. I liked the clean look and simplicity of it back then but it was a bit limited as far as functionality. I decided to try it again about a month ago and wow! I'm now actively using it in iPad, iPhone, my Mac, and occasionally on the web. Wherever I am, I'm able to quickly look up my projects and tasks or add new ones. So far everything stays in sync beautifully. When I need to add attachments, I can. If I need to turn a task into a project or a project into a subproject of another subproject, I just drag and drop... And voilá! Really could be much easier to use and I have to say, the product has come a long way in the past few years! Keep up the good work guys!
Great For Collaborative Task Lists
by Edawg83 on 2014/07/12 02:59
I am a firm supporter as Todoist has really helped me get on track with list building. It will require an Internet connection to stay up to date, but it is meant for folks always on the go. At first, I maintained my own lists, and over time I have had to evolve and move them around. This has been very easy and quick to do, which I appreciate. I have expanded my list to incorporate my wife and colleagues at work. It has been a great resource to use collaboratively, and access to my list on my phone, desktop, or laptop have made it a huge plus. The additional features would be nice to haves, but the subscription process seems a bit steep unless more unique value is added. I think Todoist should survey their users to get a better idea of what they would pay for - just my two cents.
Great Wunderlist Replacement
by SVKinAZ on 2015/06/13 18:15
If you’re looking for a new task manager now that Microsoft has acquired Wunderlist, Todoist is it. Not only does it match Wunderlist feature to feature, it also bests Wunderlist’s features in some ways. For example, Todoist’s handling of labels is much better than that of Wunderlist. Cross-platform support is outstanding. I particularly like the e-mail plug-ins for Outlook, Gmail, Postbox, and more. For those needing the Pro version, the cost of Todoist Pro is much cheaper than Wunderlist Pro. My only complaint would be that Todoist keeps more features as part of the Pro upgrade than Wunderlist, but since I’m a Pro user anyway, it doesn’t bother me. Most users won’t need those features. The app’s design is simple, efficient, and effective. Highly recommended.
I've tried them all...
by Dougstump on 2014/12/12 03:57
For an early adopter of productivity apps, the one category in which I've struggled is to-do-list apps. They haven't satisfied my need for simplicity and depth, so I've remained a Franklin-Covey paper planner guy (ironic for someone who relies on his electronic devices to get everything else done). After a week of using this free version, I think I've found the right tool and plan on upgrading to the paid version to get more functionality. Right off the bat, I found the prioritization, categories and flexibility to create tasks and due dates (love how I can key in "every other day" in the browser version for repeat events) highly intuitive. And synchronization between devices is a snap--no waiting around like some other apps. I highly recommend.
Almost perfect
by MiRa : ) on 2015/06/16 11:04
For the past 3 years I used Things as my mobile task manager. I loved the elegant GUI and instant synch with the Mac version. But I use a PC at work and was always looking for a better multi-platform task app with similar elegance and easy of use. I found Todoist and love it. I've used it all week and was impressed with the instant synch across iPhone, Mac and PC. I also found that it integrates well with Outlook, even allowing live emails to be turned into tasks in Todoist. Great!! And I really love the ability to easily indent sub tasks by dragging. This really helps organize work logically for multi-step processes. Until last month, I was frustrated by the lack of two key features missing in Todoist but present in most other task apps like Things: bulk selection and drag-and-drop for labels, date changes and other task features. This really slows things down when you are a power user, and need to reschedule or reprioritize. My dreams were realized in the release of Version 10 for iOS. Bulk changes are now easy. And it is also easy to add tasks between other tasks by "pinching" open a spot in a list, and to indent tasks as subtasks. Todoist is so easy to use that it integrates seamlessly into life on the go or in the office.
No calendar view, but easy to use on many devices
by Surfer806 on 2015/03/02 08:17
My biggest gripe with this is that there isn't a full calendar view. It would be really nice to have a month-long or week-long view to visualize what I have due when. Also REALLY wish there was a "schedule for later" feature so tasks that aren't due immediately would just disappear until later and my to do lists would be less cluttered. I'm an executive assistant so I have 8 million pending tasks at all times and not all are immediate. The main reason I do like and use this app every day is that I can seamlessly use it on my iPad, iPhone, and on the web from anywhere. Super super helpful and love that they don't charge for each device like some other apps do. Also upgrading for the reminders and notes was really worth it for me
Finally found it a great "To Do" organizer
by Rafamendes on 2015/01/03 13:43
I have been searching for an app to help me to organize my "to dos" for a long time. I used the tasks from outlook what was easy to link to emails, but very poor for all other things (project organization, search tools, etc). I liked todoist very much, it is easy to use, cloud and works perfectly on my laptop, iPhone and iPad, giving me efficiency to execute and organize my activities. I only didn't give 5 star because there is no link to outlook or Google mail yet, it would save lot of time if I could mark an email as "follow up" in todoist, also it is complicate to send files. That should create something that I could copy a file from email or or drive and paste in todoist. Other than these items, I like very much the app and are helping me a lot.
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.
Best User Friendly Tool to Learn Collaborative Project Management
by darmok on 2015/05/09 16:41
Pros • Integration with Sunrise calendar app makes it easy to see your complete appointment and task load for a time period so you can avoid overloading • Ease of use simplifies training and increases retention of users • Basic service allows users to learn benefits of collaborative project management, so they can appreciate why the premium option is so worthwhile • Projects, Sub-projects, Tasks and Task Dependency is included with basic service. • Premium includes Custom Filters, Notes, Attachments, Search, and Project Templates Cons • Missing Update view. As changes to tasks are made, it's important to have one place were you can see that history. Something like a social media news stream, but for project and task activity like comments and changes made. The next best service with a strong basic package that helps you show people the value, before paying for premium service is Azendoo. Their app is getting better, but they do not currently allow you to resort tasks with mobile app, only via the web browser. Their interface is also not as clean or user friendly. Todoist it is the best value in collaborative task management.
Clean, consistent, and cross platform
by huwe on 2015/05/30 02:03
I've used paid versions of Omnifocus, Things, ToDo, and several others I don't recall. It's a highly personal tool so the only way I know to do it is get one and live with it for a while and see if you can make it fit your style. Todoist does that for me. I'm mainly in the Apple ecosystem, but still have to use other os's and the web version works great. I do like the native apps for my mac & iPhone, but web access is nice when I'm in another environment. The Zapier integration with Evernote is awesome and I really like their implementation for printing hard copies when I need to. Is it perfect - no, but none of them are. Todoist has a pleasant interface and can be bent to my work style so I'm very happy with it.
Mostly Excellent
by Type1Runner on 2014/10/01 18:30
I really like this app a lot! It provides lots of ways to organize a group tasks. Prioritization is a possibility. Setting due dates is great. Just takes a little bit of time to figure out how to set your dates, especially recurring ones. My one really big complaint is that I paid for the premium version so that I could get push reminders on my phone, and that part of the app is not working. I'm frustrated about that part. If that gets changed and fixed I can change this review. But for now, I'm changing the app I use for task management. I need to push notifications, or I will miss important tasks. I will mention that I contacted the developers for technical support, and they are aware of and are working on the issue. As of today, it still wasn't fixed. So they issued me a refund. I really appreciate that.
Excellent cross platform app
by Dana Piwinski on 2014/12/24 15:17
I've been using for about a year and half. A very solid todo list manager that works equally well on my windows PC Chrome or IE browser, and on my iOS 8 devices. I have many small projects to manage concurrently, with some larger ones going at the same time. This app helps me organize all my projects with project folders and subtasks. It's easy to go through and prioritize tasks daily. I also use the Inbox to just quickly throw in a task that I later file under the appropriate project, and my iPhone lets me do that by just speaking and having that converted into the text for the task. Nice. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the calendar integration, which is being improved. I would like to be able to assign a date range to a task (and subtasks), and have that show up graphically on a calendar. If it could do that, I wouldn't need other tools to do a project work breakdown structure. I paid for the premium version, both for the additional features, but especially to encourage this company to keep working on what I believe is a solid product with even more potential. If you like it, you might do the same.
Well implemented task manager
by Brianthreedee on 2015/01/25 14:44
Being new to the use of task management, I have tried several different apps. My requirements are based on my work force needs, multi platform support, ease of work flow integration, which also means ease of use, and collaboration tools. I've found that most of my needs have been met, but I'm not won over by the outlook integration. My complaint stems from two issues, I am unable to have the calendar sit either below, or atop the plug in, but only to the side. This takes up precious real estate. The second, is that I have to run the plugin, instead of using outlooks task feature. Admittedly my issues might be my own limited understanding and if so I'll gladly change my rating to five stars, but till proven otherwise I'll leave it at four stars.
Finally: Sub Folders in Easy To Use To Do Program
by Hlenow on 2015/06/11 19:07
I have used them all, Omni Focus, Things, and all the rest. For me, the ability to easily build sub folders in To Doist is the thing that got me. I find adding tasks is easy, giving them all the info needed is easy and working with the existing lists just intuitive and easy and complete. I am a lawyer trying to keep track of the many tasks for each of my clients and the many projects for each client. This is the best program for me because of its intuitive interface and deep feature set. I tried hard to love OMni focus, but it just didn't work simply enough for me. Things won't, as a matter of principle, allow sub folders.
A sufferer of ADD lands the perfect app...⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
by Lakahata on 2014/12/08 08:20
...at least that's what the title of my review should be! I've searched high and low for a To-Do app that works with how I work. I've bought, what feels like, every single app you can imagine to help organize my life. From the free ones to the paid ones, all of them grabbed my attention for a few days but we're either too simple, too difficult or just didn't have the necessary components for my lifestyle. Todoist gives me the cross-browser, web-based, app platform I need to keep me from losing my job. 😉😉 That's why I went ahead and upgraded to premium which was never my intent when I bought the app. Thank you Todoist for an incredible tool as well as a great blog!
Best task manager EVER!!
by dragonfly09 on 2015/05/16 16:54
I have used almost ALL of them and been disappointed. This is the first one that I would ever consider paying the full price for. I can write multiple projects, daily and weekly checklists, sub-projects, invite collaborators and manage everything from my phone and desktop integrated with Outlook. Best of all the calendar feature allows you to QUICKLY mark something as today, tomorrow or next week and have a list of items from every project due "today", "tomorrow" and the "next 7 days" show up in their own lists - something maddeningly missing from other task managers. I will be using this product until the day I die. Thanks SO MUCH for creating it.
Easy, intuitive, effective
by MNK94025 on 2015/04/20 15:44
I was skeptical of any to do list app as the act of writing, and the thought time spent crafting my lists helps me process the bigger picture that individual tasks are supporting... But I'm really impressed with how this app has supported the creative-thinking aspects of my time management. Simple yet effective. The ability to easily reorder tasks and prioritize is great. Using it is very intuitive. Only wish there was an easy way to print all open tasks (rather than printing one category at a time ) as I really like having a hard copy of the big picture to muse over. I'm sure I will use this more and more over time and take advantage of all its functionality.
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!
Finally decided to go with a task program!
by TGZebra on 2015/06/11 02:43
I'm an app junkie. I've been using free app of the day programs for years and I have them all from 2Do to Things to Omnifocus. Todoist is the first I've really used for more than a couple of months. I just got tired of having to actually create a task list to learn how to use task programs in the first place. The easy set up and reliable syncing has me on top of everything. Coupled with Clear for simple lists, you can't go wrong. Yes, there are a couple of things I'd like to see changed but they seem very responsive and updates come often. If you are looking for simplicity, sophistication and adaptability, Todoist is the right choice.
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!
Keep up the great work on this.
by Mbldr on 2015/06/30 03:41
10-year plus GTDer. Use Windows laptop and tablet along with iOS devices. This app has a great look and feel along with an intuitive flow. Moving away from 7-years of use of Netcentrics GTD Outlook Addin to Todoist. Any features missed from the GTD Addin are far outweighed by the convenience of having all of this sync across platforms and readily available anywhere. One thing really missed is the ability to add screen shots (not as attachments) to notes as easily as it's done in Outlook. Having notes shown with the task as in Outlook would be a big plus. Read recently in the ToDoist blog about increased tie in with Microsoft Ink-looking forward to that.
