So far I find the Todoist paradigm very helpful. I can focus on "today" without being overwhelmed by everything on my todo list. As far as the software goes, I find the UX surprisingly inconsistent between platforms (I use Mac, Win 10, and iOS). This is frustrating when moving from one device to another. Also, tasks disappear seemingly forever once checked off. I would prefer to see all my completed tasks for the day until I refresh or "clean up", to use language from other GTD apps.
If you already know what you are doing but you need to know how to go about doing it then this app is for you. The Premium package has an extra set of color codes as well as an additional option to write in comment boxes. The color codes help me keep things fresh and the comment boxes keep my ideas original. If you want to write it all down the good. It only takes only a few seconds and it will make your life that much easier. The app is a wonderful tool and has the potential to be something so much more.
I like Todoist a lot, and I've tried many other to-do apps that don't stack up to it. Even still, there are things I find that it lacks. New updates have bug fixes, but I wish I saw more improvements to actual functionality and usability. My personal biggest annoyances/things Todoist is missing: - Can't keep a project automatically sorted by date (without having to hit sort whenever I add tasks). - No start dates on tasks. Some of my tasks can span multiple days, and Todoist doesn't provide a good way to keep track of these. - Can't change what time "today" ends. I'm often up till 2am, but any tasks I complete after midnight count for the next day. - Can't automatically sort the Today view by project (within tasks of the same priority, I don't want to see my projects all jumbled together). - Subtasks could use improvements, especially recurring subtasks. Completing a recurring parent task doesn't update completed subtasks. - "Next week" sometimes reschedules for 2 weeks from now. For example, I have mine set to Saturday, and today is Sun 6/23. I would expect "next week" to reschedule to Sat 6/29, but instead it's Sat 7/6.
I was a diehard OF user for years. However it had its limits, specifically cross device. If you work strictly in MacOS/iOS ecosystem that’s fine. But I use MacOS, IOS and Android due to my work. I needed a task manager that integrated with all my devices. Todoist really does the job and highly recommend anyone considering making a switch
Download this app & you’ll see that there are enough hours in the day! I love the feasibility of the app and how I can organize my activities/projects between school & work. - Side note you can change the color of the app which helps locating it on my phone and creates a little personality to the app. I wish all my apps could do the same!
Make an app for productivity without integration. Makes too much since not to have it. I need import of all calendar items from Mac or phone. And all remind to todoist. And don’t tel me IFTTT cause it doesn’t work but when it wants. You want someone to pay you for an app without integration. I have integration with Remind. Guess I’ll just use the free remind as it’s about as useful as this thing and at least it’s integrated.
It took a few months to really get rolling but I can tell a huge difference in my productivity! With a rapidly growing business things were beginning to fall through the cracks. Synchronizing my phone with the computer at the office has made me a more reliable person. The recurring reminders are awesome, too. Those pesky tasks that seem to get overlooked periodically will never again be forgotten!
This is an easy to use to-do list that I love being able to use across my devices. Good job!
Been using this for 2+ years. Does everything I need!
I have tried many task apps and I like this one best. I use a GTD (ish) approach. As soon as something occurs to me I add it to the Todoist inbox. The, when I have time, I go through that list in the inbox and add dates and categories to each item. I am want a calendar view within Todoist. That’s my main complaint. I did connect Todoist to my iCal but it wasn’t easy to look at or work with.
