Awesome Program
This is an awesome program & I use it all the time. I don’t have a family, so I’m glad this app doesn’t have all the other stuff other apps have for family schedules & such. I’m also not a big time executive who needs a bunch of other features, keeping track of meetings & clients. I’m a simple personal on disability, who likes to keep track of projects around the house & her shopping list. I also use it for my part-time position I have working at home to keep track of what reports I need to finish. The other added features I love is the ability to use it with my Apple Watch I just won in a contest & the ability to use it with Alexa, which being disabled & having mobility issues, this is a major convenience. The one bad thing, which is why I gave it only 4 stars, is the inability to use some of the features without buying the premium version. Being on disability, once the rent & the rest of the monthly necessities are paid, I don’t even have enough left over to go out to lunch, let alone pay subscription fees. I don’t mind paying one time charges if the program was worth it, such as this one, since I know the time & energy that goes into the development, but those of us who are mostly on limited, fixed income, who also must still work part-time to pay bills, don’t have the money to pay any kind of subscription fees. Anyways, that’s all. Just wish I had access to the other features, so I could really utilize the app to its full potential.

Simply the best so far for professionals with date critical needs
If you’re just looking for an app to help you plan your garage cleaning and family vacation there are better looking and simpler options out there. If you need an app for professional use, where due dates and times are not merely “goals” (yeah I’m looking at you “GTD” method) but are actual real world cannot be missed deadlines, this is the app. If you need an app that allows you to have those dates appear in your calendar (your calendar, not just the app’s upcoming forecast of events) this is your app (the Fantastical 2 way sync is killer). If you prefer not to spend more time trying to figure out how to do things in the app than actually doing them (did anyone say “Omnifocus“) this is the one. Collaboration, ability to easily add notes and attachments on both the project and task level, straightforward interface, relatively easy to learn functions with good web documentation, TEMPLATES (a feature that for some inexplicable reason other apps seem to openly resist adding but is a no-brainer for those who have the same task and deadline structure for multiple projects, like I don’t know pretty much anyone who is in business and/or works with standardized contracts), sub-tasks, multiple reminder options, this one does it right. You will not see the benefit of the forgoing without the premium subscription, but $38 a year is a bargain for the features and functionality you get.

Update: Cost-prohibitive, unfortunately
I really have loved this app, but I need to be able to schedule projects and reminders to try to help as I am permanently disabled and am trying to market my art on a PT basis. Right now, I am one senior citizen living alone, and paying close to $50 a year for these basic functionalities unfortunately makes the app unfeasible for me. If my finances were to significantly improve as a result of using those added features to functionality, I absolutely would be able and willing to pay a yearly subscription fee as well as would likely evangelize them all over the Internet as in the past I have blogged, written articles and done projects with major sites like Fitness Magazine, Coping with Cancer, Lifehack, and more. Now I am disabled and trying to regroup and revisit some of these creative abilities (art and writing, especially), and I really need those functionalities of projects and reminders. I was disappointed when, on my previous review the developer responded, inviting me to contact him to see how he could help, only for there to be no response when I did so and even said I am willing to provide proof of Social Security Disability. This is a great app, but unfortunately some basic functionality is simply too cost-prohibitive for a disabled senior citizen trying to find a way to climb up. Maybe someday.

Best Task Manager I’ve Used to Date
It’s remarkable to me ToDoist isn’t ranked higher on the productivity charts because it easily eclipses anything that I’ve ever used before. It’s gorgeous (I prefer dark mode, but there are more themes) It integrates great with the GTD methodology (my preference) but whatever your system, it’s robust enough that you should be able to integrate it well. I love what they did with Karma, their gamified point system (but I would like to see this expanded). You can tell that the creators stay up-to-date on best practices and they regularly update a pretty informative blog that is enjoyable for a productivity junky like me. I used it for 24 hours and pretty much decided I NEEDED premium which is easily the best $3 I spend every month. It’s important to distinguish between what this is and is not though. It does not teach you how to be productive. It is not a good place to do high level goal setting, visioning, and planning. It is not a calendar. It also doesn’t focus you on the task at hand. The app is a Task Filing System. It is a utility that will enhance your workflow with those other things. It will work great for anyone who needs to make a to-do list, but those who chose to educate themselves on actual task management theory will get the most out of it. I hope it hits the top of the charts!

My ADHD Brain Thrives with Todoist
I’ve been using Todoist for several years now. I have ADHD, full disclosure, and this app is a lifesaver. I started using it just with work - juggling so many projects, follow ups, and stupid tedious tasks was (still is) impossible for me to keep track of. I never used paper planners consistently 😭 Routine is the #1 thing I struggle with. I come back to Todoist everyday because I gotta keep my karma and streaks going 🤣 my current streak is 107 weeks (I forgot to turn todoist vacation on before my current streak and I cried when I came back!) Slowly, I began incorporating personal tasks - budget, wellness, some of those goal check-ins, reminders to schedule a doctor appointment and send birthday cards. Pretty much every facet of my life is touched by Todoist now. Its also enabled me to be goal-oriented…something I never thought I’d say. Because Todoist is helping me track all categories of my life, I can set tasks and recurring things that will push the pin of my goals a little further each week or month. Fast forward to today, Im beginning to introduce Todoist to my team - and we’re creating a team in it! Im excited to not have to remind my coworkers to water their office succulents anymore 🤣 we have a recurring task and reminder for that!

Task manager
I have been using todoist for several years now. I started off using it as a “brain dump.” It is great because when I have an idea, I can quickly jot it down and I don’t forget it. This used to be a big problem and it was frustrating to not be able to recall something if I got distracted or was unable to write it down (even if it wasn’t important, as I would spend time trying to remember it- usually with no luck!). I like that you can assign a priority to tasks, and I especially like the new feature that allows you to update a reoccurring task to a new date (without changing the frequency that was set before). I think that is my favorite newer feature. Being able to schedule something into the future is also very helpful. I do also use a paper system and Apple Calendar, but find that it is still good to have an electronic system. (Paper is still good for the day-to-day must do things, although I have started relying more on todoist for that too.) I have also started trying not to put to-do’s on my calendar. The nice thing is that I can neglect it some at times, and still keep track of long-term things, but then quickly update it as needed using filters, search terms, or by date.

Life Changing
I’ve tried so many different to-do apps and this one works for my specific criteria. 1 - I like to bullet list my to-do items. This makes it super simple to work off a simple bullet list or take it further and get down into the weeds with reminders, projects, ect. Basically you can go as complicated or as simple as you want. 2 - It works across my iOS, Mac and PC. This is huge. I maintain a robust excel tracker during the day and I can very quickly add items to Todoist which syncs across all my devices. 3 - Syncing across my calendar and inviting my wife to a separate project is incredibly easy. 4 - Easy to change priorities and dates. Life happens and we don’t always get to everything we think we will do in a day. It’s too easy to push less important tasks to a later date. I love how flexible this app is. Too many apps want to lock you into a certain ecosystem (i.e. apple only) or force you to conform to using the app a certain way. If you don’t want to use the markdown features, shortcuts, projects or boards then you don’t have to. I use it for absolutely everything now. Everyone in my life now knows if it’s not on my “list” then it’s not going to happen. Worth every single penny.

Overall it’s good
Todoist has always been what I find myself settling on after going through so many options. It’s strengths are in its focus on simplicity and core functionality that we care. That said, would love to see a few things, 1. Import my calendar to show along with tasks for day level planning. 2. A little color please. Some vibrant colors would be really great. At the very least, can we please get some of the older app icons back. 3. See sub projects listed under main. I have a handful of projects under a few main projects (work areas). When I click to see the main project area, I can only see tasks for the main one, it doesn’t show listing of subprojects. This gets confusing when I have no task under the main project and all the tasks are under main project’s sub projects. —— Edit on 5/15 post developer’s reply: no, you should take my feedback and share with your team. I already spent enough time with a review, 5-star rating, and now responding again. Don’t make me run through your support system to make your job easier. It’s frustrating and stains a good app experience I have otherwise.

Best To Do List App Ever!
I used Wunderlist for years to keep me organized and really liked it. They got bought out by Microsoft and went defunct, so thought I would give this app a try. I wish I had switched YEARS AGO! Todoist is so much better, intuitive and streamlined. Honestly it’s hard to have lots of features in software without being “bloated” but this app pulls it off. I live by to do lists and love this one a lot. They add features that are useful, listen to community feedback and I’ve never had a single glitch or issue in the months I’ve been using it. Totally worth using and signing up for! EDIT: I am editing this review to say that I could not get nearly as much done in my life without this app. I’ve used it for a couple years now and don’t know how I lived without it. I use it for work, home, groceries, recurring chores and tasks that I would otherwise forget. If a friend recommends a movie I note it here and add it to a list of recommendations. Each area of my life is separated into projects and subdivided into sections. If I had to keep only one single app on my phone it would definitely be this one! 6 stars.

Try it!
i am very disorganized, but this app makes it easy to display my goals for school in an efficient and aesthetically pleasing way. ive been using it for almost three years now, and it has saved me so many times. I also love how, even without having the paid version, you have access to all of the features you need. ADDITIONALLY (wow this is long) i really live for how easy it is to access on all my devices, since there is a browser version(no download necessary) that i can get to on my computer easily. Todoist has stopped me from forgetting so many things. [tips to use it- make labels for your classes if you are in school, (it makes it so fun and color coordinated) also! if you have an iphone, add it as a widget on your home screen, so that you can easily add tasks and see what you have to do without opening the app.] my sister got into harvard using this (and loves it enough to pay for the pro version). im just a generally disorganized kid trying to graduate highschool and ive never left a review for anything before this. But for real, If you are looking for a digital planner or organizer try this one out. :)

I don’t all to do list, this is by far my favorite
I’ve used every to do list out there. Every complex, GTD, you name it I’ve used it. I’ve used it on every platform from windows, mac , iPad, iPhone. There are couple things that make this one of the best. It’s not perfect, but I’d rather have a good list that is visually intuitive, consistent across all platforms, simplifies complex situations, but still allows for the complexity. More importantly they are very fairly priced, for the incredible amount of features that other to do organization lists attempt and charge more for. Whether it is the desktop, the iPhone or the iPad, their interface is excellent and consistent. It’s very easy To maintain a to do list when one is calm or has few projects. But when I am stressed, and have a lot to put in the lists quickly, ToDoIst make it easy, intuitive, consistent so that I actually want to use the application. In simple terms, this is the first application that as my lists and projects and tasks add up, I don’t feel visually overwhelmed and don’t dread opening the application to see what’s awaiting me..

Just started using this- will give final rating in a few months l:
A few days ago I downloaded Todoist because 1) the app was recently approved to be installed on my work iPhone issued by my employer and 2) I also need an effective organizational method for personal use. Until I started using Todoist my life was countless Post-Its at my work and home workstations as well as Calendar iPhone Entries/Alerts that had to be manually duplicated between my Work iPhone and Personal iPhone. As a bonus I upgraded my account (it’s created under my personal email) to Premium as a gift to myself cuz my birthday is in a couple of weeks. :-D I already love this app: before I knew I had a lot to juggle but now that I actually SEE the amount of incomplete tasks on my plate it’s a miracle that I haven't dropped more balls than I usually do! I'm already sleeping better because I'm not up in bed half the night staring at the ceiling and worrying that I have forgotten or will forget to do something important. Go ahead and upgrade to premium - a year costs about $34 which is less than most of you who are considering downloading this app spend on BS items in a week- you know this.! Free yourself! - Kim

Almost perfect
I made the switch over to Todoist from TickTick and absolutely love it. It syncs incredibly well with my iPhone, my Apple Watch, and to my Windows computer which I use at home and at work. I love how minimal the UI is, the layout, and how solid everything feels in comparison to other task manager apps out there. Even the community on Reddit, Instagram, and Twitter are incredibly helpful. Literally the only thing stopping me (and many others) from switching, is how we cannot manually arrange tasks in Today. In the current beta, there are sorting options, but I cannot drag and drop a task that doesn’t have a time associated with it in Today’s tasks with one that does. It bounces right back to the bottom. Many others including myself like to layout their tasks manually the night before, in the order they anticipate doing them. But if you try to do this, some tasks bounce back to the bottom of the list which is somewhat annoying. But otherwise, fantastic app! I see why this is the #1 task manager app

Great for ADHD
I’m happy I downloaded this app after reading it can help adults with ADHD. So far I’ve found that it’s pretty user-friendly and holds me accountable so I use as a tool daily. It’s simple and such a great way to stay organized. It also helps me stay on top of things like taking medication because you can set up routines (my favorite feature). I tried Ever Note at the same time but it confused me. I like that you can prioritize on the Todoist app and my new (2nd) favorite feature, you can use it for project planning and add sun tasks. You can use the list view or more like a project map. I find that useful. So far I love the app. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because some bells and whistles would be nice. Such as when you complete a certain amount of tasks. Currently, it shows confetti and acknowledgment but, no sounds. More things like sounds, haptics or even bold colors can help with engagement. Especially since the colors for Priority don’t stand out much. Anywho I may be asking a lot but it’s a great tool in my ADHD managing tool belt. Thank you for creating this app!

Best I’ve tried (and I’ve tried a lot)
Todoist is full featured and actively developed with many thoughtful surprises, large and small throughout. Over the last ten years I’ve tried many task management apps and methodologies. I most recently tried several of the major ones a few months ago. Todoist is the best I’ve tried. It’s elegant to use if you want to keep it simple and has the capabilities necessary to implement a more rigorous task management system like GTD. This ability to keep it simple and facilitate complexity is important, I think, as it takes a while and some experimentation for a person to settle on a task management methodology that works best for them, often drawing from several different methodologies. Other popular task management apps are more limited, and after using them simply for a while and realizing you want more, the features that would allow you to do more aren’t present and you have to move to another app. This has happened to me a few times and was a waste of time. I wish I’d just gone with Todoist from the start.

Adult ADD “must have”
I am somebody who struggles to keep routines and remembering things that need to be done on a weekly monthly or annual basis. I might also forget to pick up some thing at the store you asked me to get last week! Instead of self-loathing and beating yourself up, get this app and use it in every aspect of your life. I stopped using other types of reminders because this one links directly with my Google calendar. I like that I can prioritize the tasks for the day or the week or whatever. At first, I prioritized way too many things, but now I try to use the labels for things that are important or urgent and I only use the priorities for three things per day. In my opinion, there should only be one thing that’s the most important thing to get done. Another cool thing about this app is that it allows you to use it however it works for you. I have it on my desktop computer at work also and it stays open all day long. It’s a well thought out and well designed app.

Great for list oriented people
Started using todoist when l felt overwhelmed at work and have been using it daily. Todoist has helped me because I used to literally lose sleep thinking about all the tasks I needed to get done the next day. Ever since l started using todoist, I sleep easy knowing my priorities are already written out for the next day. I use this for work, for my hobby, and even for my family. I have two jobs and its easy to overload everything but I group my lists together and set dates to check on progress. Todoist is so easy to use. My husband and I have a grocery list together, an errands list, regular routines like taking out the trash and when to roll out the recycle bin, a list for places we want to go or things we want to do as well as a list of gift ideas and who we would get the gift for. I have showed so many co-workers, friends, and family. Many of them started using it. I love that I can use it on the web and the apps and integrations are so easy to set up.

Good, but needs undo feature
This app is intuitive and has good features. I only have the free version, but I have been happy except for one thing, the importance of which is escalating. Unless I am blind, Todoist has no undo feature. So if I accidentally delete a task I can’t get it back. This has happened to me more than once and the last time my task had a long list of subtasks. All disappeared. Given that the method for deletion is to click the circle to the left of the task, when in other apps a circle in that spot is used for selecting, it seems there ought to be an undo. Otherwise, it’s a great app. Update: The developer contacted me with instructions to use while viewing my project. I don’t have a project, just a simple list, and when I click on the three dot icon at the top right, I do not see “Show completed tasks,” but only “Select tasks.” Update again. The developer contacted me a second time and confirmed that deleting a task can only be done in project view, which was disappointing. But the developer’s commitment to communication is splendid, which counts for a lot in my book.

I’m telling everyone about this great app
Whether you work outside the home, have a home business, or are a stay at home mom or student, this app and a few good systems can transform your productivity. I use a conglomeration of methods that I gleaned from 3 books: Getting Things Done, The 12 Week Year, and Do More Better. Those foundational books combined with this app have tripled my productivity already. I’ve tried several others, from OmniFocus to Cozi to Habit Tracker and more. I manage a home business, am a home school teacher, as well as manage my house. This is the first app that has given me the freedom to use my systems in an effective manner. My stress has reduced as I’ve found an app that lets me dump all of those tasks from my head and place them in an app that I trust to organize them in a manner that keeps me from missing anything. I wish it was a bit more intuitive in applying GTD, but I’ve managed some work arounds for setting up Reviews and other important GTD basics. Give this a try. You wont be sorry.

Removing functionality for its users
We regrettably moved to this app when our beloved Wunderlist was no longer supported. It has been tolerable at best, with ugly interface, non-intuitive design and is clearly meant more for an office like/scheduling mindset and not a day to day list app for groceries, etc which we tried to use it for. For example trying to write “1/2” as in “1/2 a cup” is autocorrected to a date “January 2nd” prompting add to calendar every annoying. Again, we tolerated this app, but today I get an email saying they are GIVING us MORE features from their subscription service, how generous! However, they are REMOVING the ability to make more lists (which they call “Projects”) which is the PRIMARY FEATURE OF A LIST APP! We never wanted or asked for the other features. This app is useless to me now. Will find a replacement, of which there are many! What a shameless way to attempt to squeeze money from the people already using your app. It is truly appalling and you should be ashamed. Instead of being creative and developing new features someone would actually want to pay for you are now putting limits on the people who already using the app and changing the way it functions for them. Gross.

Finally almost perfect
The new overhaul of Todoist has made it feel fast, reliable, and easy. Honestly, it’s the best thing to happen to Todoist since they released 1.0. This is now my go-to recommendation for anyone looking for an easy, understandable, and reliable task manager because it can be simple if someone doesn’t want to spend too much time dealing with it, or robust if someone is looking for something to center their entire life around. There are only a couple features missing, like matching system dark mode (so I can choose one of the fun color themes for the header but still have a dark screen), setting projects to always sort by a criteria (so every time I open them I don’t have to click sort by date), and setting a start time for my day (so when the clock rolls over to midnight I don’t suddenly have a red bubble with a giant list of things to do, I should be able to choose the time of day that starts). If these three features were added, I don’t think I could come up with a single complaint. Todoist on iOS really is that close to perfect at this point.

Want to love it BUT...
Overall I like the program and how it operates BUT the reporting is pretty much non existent. I have been requesting a simple report for Completed Task by Project for a range of dates since I started using this program over 3 years ago. I can’t think of a more basic easy to program report that would benefit many people. They tell me to us IFTTT (which I tried ...doesn’t work well or give me a concise format) or export to spreadsheet (just something else to do). Why not just add a Report button where one selects project and entered range of dates wa magic! I don’t want to switch programs but I am currently looking ... to me this is such an obvious feature I just assumed (my bad) that I would have this reporting capability. While I’m on a roll, my second pet peeve, on the iPad, when you go into a Project, everything is sorted by date entered and you can’t change it... nobody cares about date entered ...we need due date order default or at least the ability to change sort order.

Sanity saving
I don’t usually write app reviews, but Todoist has been invaluable for me. Until now, I’d gotten along just fine keeping track of things by using a handwritten weekly list of tasks, supplemented by an ongoing list of tasks in my calendar. I’m semi-retired, and don’t have that much to keep track of. However, I recently assumed responsibility for coordinating the care of a friend who needs 24/7 care, dealing with all her insurance, doctor appointments, managing her finances, and many other critical tasks that were overwhelming. I turned to Todoist and it was remarkably easy to learn to use. Not everything was completely intuitive, but the ability to organize tasks into separate projects, and the flexibility of viewing tasks allows me to manage more than I could hope to without the use of the app. The seamless coordination between using it on my iPhone and iPad means I can add or review tasks whenever and wherever I am. I paid for the upgrade and it’s well worth it to be able to add comments.

Slow burn, second-chance romance
I was a Wunderlist devotee and I’m still not fully over it. ToDoist always felt like too many bells and whistles. I resisted. I shopped around. Then eventually I concluded ToDoist had everything I wanted. So I took the plunge, spent a few hours getting it all set up in a modified bullet journal-esque style, and now it’s a match made in heaven. I have a few tiny quibbles: I don’t use subtasks much because the way they work hasn’t been intuitive for me. I struggle with weekly recurring tasks—when I don’t get to a Monday recurring task and reschedule it to Tuesday, I still want it on Monday the following week. And finally, I would love to have ToDoist for home as well as work, but I don’t want those lists to share space and I don’t want to pay for a second subscription; I would love to be able to partition it for work-life balance. But overall, I love it. Love love love. It makes my cute lil ADHD brain settle down a little and get S done. Which feels like a miracle.

Almost Perfect
I am very task-focused so I have tried all the different to-do and project management apps looking for the perfect one. I keep finding myself coming back to Todoist. I really like the simplicity of setting up a project or a task and the great syncing capability across all of my devices. The fact that I can assign a task to another family member is also a plus. Also, having a web app allows me to use it at work as well. My only complaint with the app is that, when you finalize a repeating task after midnight, it does not show up the following day. Instead, completion of the overdue task is treated as completion on the current day. This is a major pain as I work late and often complete daily tasks after midnight. There should be an option to change this behavior by the user. Other than that, this is a great app and one I use every day. If the developer would just fix this one thing, I’ll never feel the need to stray again.

Fantastic Update
Been using Todoist for almost 3 years now I’ve tried MANY different Task/Project Managers even following them closely and trying them out after they would get huge updates. There are a lot of great productivity apps now days but I always find myself coming back to Todoist as it’s simple yet powerful and in my opinion has the best balance of simplicity and features in one package. Throw in the fact that the team at Todoist is constantly improving it with this new Foundations Update it’s gone to a new level. There are still things they need to tweak but overall it’s been great. Also just when I thought this app couldn’t get any better it did with the Foundation’s update and with word of it adding Trello style boards as a future option I see things only getting better. I highly recommend not just trying this app but learning the ins and outs and living with it for a month to really get the full experience of how great this application is. Keep it up Todoist Company!!

Great Organization App!
This app is great for organizing a bunch of highschool/college classes that have a bunch of assignments. This app lets you create different sections of lists and labels to help categorize those lists into more manageable amounts. Tasks and assignments that you want to get done today all show up in the today tab, eliminating any other tasks that might be in those other lists due at another time. Having all of these resources in this one all minimizes stress and anxiety when it comes to getting things done! You can customize your lists and the projects that you are working on however you want. This app really helped my overwhelming lists turn into priority and success. This app work great. Although, I would like for the app to have a way to make more than five projects without paying, changing the layout of the main project tabs would be cool to, specially making those tabs bigger! Overall I recommend 5 stars.

My favorite productivity app!
Todoist is such a great app that I genuinely forgot I wasn’t paying a subscription for it. It feels almost too good to be true! I’ve been using it for two years now for work and personal tasks as well as just regular notes and lists. I use it in tandem with a calendar app that it integrates well with (Fantastical) both on desktop and mobile. The two apps together are seriously next level. Love how clean the interface is, love how seamlessly I can use app integrations, and definitely love the language recognition. I didn’t know this was something I needed before but it makes adding tasks with filters, location data, times, etc incredibly fast and easy. I forget pretty much anything that isn’t written down immediately and the ease with which I can organize everything is wild. It’s also just fun to play around with. I can’t believe I love an app this much. Thanks, Todoist team!

A must-have app! LIFESAVER!
This app has made my job far less confusing, chaotic, and frustrating! I am an organized person naturally, and I write everything down! But notebooks make me crazy because they are hard to keep organized without a bunch of things crossed out and arrows pointing everywhere! This app allows me to write down what needs to be done, organize it by project, make priority levels, etc. It also works as a calendar to alert me when certain things are due. And I LOVE that I can mark something as complete, and it disappears completely! No ugly, crossed out words! And maybe the best part is that it’s online based, so whatever I add to my list through my phone gets added to my list on my computer! So I don’t have a hundred sticky notes and scrap pieces of paper with notes written on them all over my desk. I always have my phone on me, so I can pull up the all and add stuff in a second! This is the app that I have always wanted!

I’d be lost without this app
I’ve tried a lot of To Do list organizers and this one is by far my favorite. Well worth the price to get the full version. I have a very demanding job with a lot of stuff coming at me from 20 different directions all day every day. If not for this app, I would be lost. Plus, it gives me something actionable I can do at 2 a.m. when I wake up thinking about something that needs done and I can put it down without hoping I remember it after I wake back up in the morning. The notifications keep me on track, across my devices, and I love having the desktop version, as well as on my iPad, iPhone. Presentation is part of what makes this the best, with different ways to organize information into steps. The repeating info also lets me set up things like work colleague’s anniversaries and birthdays and free up space in my head to not have to remember such things.

This app changed my life
I’ve been using this app for ~5 years. It’s truly an exception app and so well-developed. I have recommended this to all of my employees and colleagues (we build and launch rockets/satellites, so this app is quite literally powering affordable access to space). Being able to use this and sync across mobile and my laptop is beautiful. I use it to organize work tasks. I use it to keep a grocery list. I use it to create a packing list. I use it for a weekend to-so list. I have “need to buy” lists and ad-hoc lists for all sorts of things. For work, priority and due date are essential. The task nesting functionality is amazing and so easy to use. Task frequency has saved the lives of many plants that live with me and require water regularly. Thanks to the developers for putting so much thought into making this a simple platform capable of so much. Y’all are awesome!

Near-Perfect Productivity App 🙌🏼
I’ve only been using this for a few days now (started on Saturday, it’s now Tuesday morning) but I got a TON done on Saturday and it felt so good to brain dump tasks into the Inbox as they popped into my head (without having to stop what I was currently doing) knowing I could easily process those new tasks later. Subtasks have been SUPER HELPFUL in getting things checked off my list. Otherwise, I get overwhelmed by the thought of a big task and just never start. Breaking a big task down into easy small steps is life-changing. 🙌🏼 Also: LOVING the recently-added task duration feature, I’m just hoping this new feature can be expanded on in a couple ways, to make this the PERFECT PRODUCTIVITY APP 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟: 1) add a visual timer that pops up on the screen when you start a task with a duration. (Currently doing this with the timer on my Apple Watch) 2) color labels to quickly identify the tasks that are estimated to take 5min, 15m, 30m etc (and the ability to sort by those labels!) … it would also be great to be able to add time durations without needing a specific start time… the idea being: when you have some undefined time to tackle todo’s, you can quickly glance at your 5 minute tasks and pick one or two to take care of. (I’m trying to eliminate as much decision making as possible beforehand, so I’ll have the energy for big decisions when I need it.) Otherwise, awesome app! 🙌🏼

Helpful for College Students
Ive been using this app over the last 3 years in college and have found it incredibly helpful to manage the large amount of assignments and projects through the semester. It’s ability to clearly organize a semesters worth of material at one time and only show the pressing tasks from each class folder makes my life easier not having to go in and add projects every week or sort through separate class folders to find what’s due and when. I love that tasks can easily be shifted when due dates change. and with the most recent updates, as well as my upgrade to premium, this app has taken it to the next level. Being able to see all upcoming tasks past just one week as well as synced on my google calendar has made the complex homework schedule easily visualized and just so much easer to plan and tackle. Here’s to another 3 years of not missing an assignment.

Good Software - Do NOT accidentally delete your tasks!
I don’t mind paying for software, but I like to try the free versions to get a feel before I lay down the cash for a year’s subscription. I spent some time entering my tasks and details. Then went to the inbox and deleted the messages not realizing that I deleted all of my tasks that I had just entered. There is no way to restore tasks on the free version. Look, I understand limiting that feature to maybe a day or even a few minutes, but a few seconds for making a rookie mistake is just mean. After considering re-entering my tasks, I realized that I actually am afraid to use Todoist because I might make a mistake and lose all of my work. I really do not want to rely on software that I am afraid to use. I know this will not make a difference to developers who will tell me to just buy the paid version, so I guess I’m just venting. Trying Microsoft ToDo where I tested my same mistake and was able to restore my tasks. I would have preferred to use Todoist.

I have not found a better overall package out there. Once you really dig into what you can do with Todoist, it’s much more powerful than its simplistic interface reveals at first. I chose Todoist because of its multi platform and web sync, but after trying countless other options including Things, OmniFocus, 2Do and some Evernote extensions, I kept coming back to ToDoist. Once I really embraced the strengths, like rescheduling options, forwarding emails, and using priorities, I was able to piece together a very effective system. It’s not often I find an app that sticks around. It’s easy to procrastinate and spend valuable time looking for the perfect task management system, but I’ve found that what I really was looking for was both a system and a tool. I wanted a GTD app conceptually, but my roots are based on Franklin Covey. I was able to achieve an awesome hybrid approach of what works for me using the functionality of Todoist.

Switched from The iPhone X’s Native To-Do List App
I am a huge proponent of to-do lists and have been using Trello and the iPhone X’s native to-do list app. However, I had recently been recommended by a friend to try the Todoist app! Due to my overly-organized nature and my desire for increased efficiency, it was hard for me to imagine switching over from my current organization-flow to this new app because I was worried that I’d have to re-learn a new way of organizing my tasks and to-dos. However, I couldn’t have been MORE wrong when I finally made the switch! The Todoist app is fast, intuitive, minimalistic, and so focused on eliminating the distractibility of inessential features that most other to-do apps include. Actually, I was SO impressed with the Todoist app that I am currently exploring the possibility of integrating the “Twist” app (another product made by Doist) as a main mode of communication for the leadership teams at my Church! Thank you, Doist!

Game changer
With digital tools, such as email, calendars, cloud, etc, having to actually use paper for organization is becoming a thing of the past. The one item I could never find a solution for was to dos. Because of this, I still carried a paper to do calendar (like you had in middle school) to help me track things I wanted to get done. I tried all sorts of ways to get rid of this (emails, calendar invites, etc), but none gave me the visual list or ease of just writing it down. This app changed all that. It’s functions not only replaced my calendar, but actually improved as I could organize them by project, search them, and move them around. It sychs quickly between my iPhone and iPad, and has become one of my most important apps. My company gives us office 365, which includes Microsoft to do. I’ve experimented with this, but its functionality or ease is no wear close to this app!

Messy and disappointing
In creating items that repeat, there isn’t a system of click a button or two. Instead the developers foolishly decided to force users figure words by typing that may or may not work. This only makes the task of creating daily todo items more timely, more complicated, more frustrating. Why do these developers try to come up with cute solutions instead of using proven successful ones? Issue #2: notifications. I have the red alert bubble showing in the app icon. I go to the app but there is no obvious place to show what is causing the alert. It turns out that there is nothing for an alert yet that red notification indicator bubble in the app icon is still showing. This only will make me turn off notifications from this app, thereby making this app completely useless. The objective of list users is to elimate these alerts by accomplishing tasks. If those alerts only continue to show, only frustrates us. Fix these issues. I’m already just about done with this app. Paper and pencil seem like an easier, cheaper, less stressful way to go.

OK, other than for daily tasks completed after midnight
This is a good app, but I don’t like how it handles daily recurring tasks when I don’t mark them complete until after midnight. In that case they don’t count as being completed on the day they were scheduled for, but for the next day, and then don’t show up again the next time they’re due but instead over a day after they were completed. It would be nice to have a setting so tasks completed by maybe 3:00 AM could count toward the previous day. I thought I’d found a workaround by scheduling tasks to recur every 24 hours, but just found out they shift by an hour when daylight saving time starts in the US, which is annoying when I have a lot of daily tasks. Other than that, I really like the widget, that tasks with a lot of text show multiple lines of text in lists, and being able to turn off alerts for some tasks.

Would be better if notifications actually worked
The notifications for this app literally don’t work. Even with background refresh turned on, and connected to cellular network or WiFi, the notifications don’t go off. I don’t even get notifications in the Notification Center. I literally only see updates on my tasks when I manually open the app and see all my overdue deadlines because the notifications for them never went off. I don’t know if the regular notifications are unavailable without a subscription. I know Todoist has what it calls “reminders,” which requires a pro subscription. Are reminders supposed to be regular notifications? If so that would explain why mine aren’t going off because I don’t have the pro subscription. But if notifications and reminders are different features, then the notifications feature NEVER works. Even after multiple uninstall, reset, and reinstall attempts. I might as well delete the app since without notifications, it is useless to me.

This app has organized my entire life!
I initially was just hunting for an app that would help keep my many work tasks in line and make it easy to assess what was on the to do list. After about a week of using it, I upgraded to the premium version and have been using it for EVERYTHING! Most of all, it’s helped establish “habits” like drinking water, maintaining my home cleaning schedule, getting a walk in every day. I have projects for monthly bills, large expense lists, home projects with detailed step by step breakdowns, even some things for fun like local small businesses I want to visit, all of which feel great to check off once done. I’m a challenge driven person so keeping your “streak” alive helps make sure I’m checking in daily and getting things done! Love love love this app and can’t thank the developers enough for creating it

Love Todoist, but sync failure
I really like Todoist, striking a good balance between complexity (Omnifocus) and elegance (Things). But after doing some massive edits of my task lists (moving tasks in and out as sub tasks of another task) as I debated the best structure moving forward, all of a sudden, the iOS client stopping syncing. 😖 I noticed that the tasks were not gone, but just not appearing on this device. So I deleted the app and reinstalled and everything was fine. Clearly, I’m not alone in this scenario, as your support site suggests asks whether one has “logged out and back in” as that, in your words, “we know it sounds too good to be true, but we’ve found that most technical issues get fixed with this simple trick.” I know that you’re trying to make light of this scenario, but this obviously is not an acceptable. The notion that we should consider this kludgy work-around as “too good to be true” is a bit insulting. It would be like Microsoft joking “hey, it sounds too good to be true, but you’re only three key presses away from fixing this app that has stopped responding: control, alt, and delete.” The fact that your sync process can silently fail is very disturbing. By the way, I received no warning ... I just happened to notice missing items. This completely undermines one’s confidence it the app. It’s far worse than a simple error. As a former acolyte of this app, I can’t possibly recommend it again.

So helpful
This app is THE BEST when it comes to planning out all my schoolwork. I’m a person who’s usually very stressed about getting things done and knowing when everything is due but with this app I can plan out all my tasks perfectly so I always know what’s due and when. While I don’t work at a company as I’m only in high school, I’m sure this app is just as great when using it for work. This app helps me with my anxiety about school more than any other app or program. If you’re someone with a busy schedule or just have a hard time keeping up with due dates and planning things out, this app is perfect for you. I’m involved in many sports and usually don’t get home until late but with this app I’m able to get everything done because I can plan things out perfectly. This app could not be more amazing.

Great app!
This is exactly the app I needed to help keep track of tasks, to dos, and projects in both my personal and work life. The seamless syncing between my iPhone, Mac, Windows PC and iPad really make this a great app to use for seamless sync. I’ve also got my wife signed up and we work together on a lot of home projects around our small farm. This allows us to collaborate, add tasks to projects and notes about the tasks. I do think it would be better if notifications were not a premium only feature as without notifications, this product really doesn’t work for many folks as a reminder replacement. It’s also a little discouraging that there isn’t a family option... I’d love to include my kids’ chores on this and use it to teach them how to organize their tasks in life. Maybe a set cost for families up to a certain size? Outside of the package offerings, I think this is a fantastic product and recommend to a lot of people!

Almost there
Todoist is the best option on the market for both personal and work productivity. I work in tech and use todoist to manage everything, including shared lists with my partner (e.g. grocery shopping list, gifts, vacations, family planning). I use todoist on my phone, over voice through Alexa, and right next to email via an Outlook plugin. Alexa and Todoist are a match made in Heaven. During the day, while I’m working, I can just say things to add to my to do list out loud in less than 5 seconds vs the 20+ seconds it takes to use my phone. It’s amazing! However, in my workflow, I delete tasks frequently, and the design of Todoist in any environment (iPhone, Alexa, web) does not make it easy to delete. I tried setting a default swipe action on my phone, but delete is not an option. This is the one feature that if I had, I would move all my list making to todoist - but for now, I need to keep some lists on paper.

Cost prohibitive and paywall locked
Read so many glowing reviews about this app and how it’s supposed to help with ADHD and task paralysis. Being in both those categories myself along with time management issues and being forgetful I thought this would be a good way to go. Of course, immediately I’m offered the “opportunity” to pay $5 a month for premium service. No thank you. I only need it to keep track of 3 or 4 things a day and to remind me when I need to do them. I would happily pay $5 ONCE for premium access if I enjoyed the app. Anyway, I set up my first task and am astonished to see that reminders are locked behind their paywall. This is baffling. For a lot of people, the entire reason they have schedulers and to do lists is precisely bc they need reminders and to lock a basic feature behind a monthly paywall is a scummy move and shows a lack of awareness for the people they market this app to. Maybe awareness isn’t the right word to use. They seem to know exactly what their doing…

Amazing app, amazing people
ToDoist is my jam. It works exactly the way my brain does for task and project management. With endless features, advanced labeling and filtering, native language input, and so many integrations and well-designed use cases, you’ll quickly become a productivity superhero. As a six sigma black belt and operations expert; I have a sharp edge when it comes to productivity, I demand an insane amount from the tools I use. ToDoist is one of the few to have never let me down. Here is an example… I integrated my entire life into ToDoist. I use it for everything along with Fantastical. Recently, I questioned if I might move to a free option like Reminders which has made great strides and is borderline usable! I decided to share this with ToDoist and they awarded me an extended trial through the year to convince me to stay, I did… and I could t be happier.

Keeps you organized and get’s out of the way at the same time
If you’re like me and you’ve tried a ton of to do list apps, you know it’s always the same story. Either it’s simple and beautiful but it ends up being to simple and you spend to much time adding due dates etc. or it’s feature filled but adding items takes to long and you end up spending more time managing your lists than actually accomplishing anything. This is the first app that somehow does both. Adding an item to my list and simply typing when it needs to be done, adding it to the right project, and assigning it priority and other tags is a simple as possible. It takes no time at all to add fully categorized items that are accessible when and where you need them. Take the time to try this out. You won’t regret it

The devs obviously care
This app is always being updated with enhancements and cool features. It’s really just a breath of fresh air to use an app that feels so “alive”. This app is so connected to humanity and well thought out. Not to mention it is available pretty much on every platform. Thanks guys! Regarding the Google Calendar integration, I would like to be able to set reminders X minutes before the END of a task scheduled for a block of time. For example, if I have a recurring task every day from 9am to 11am, it would be convenient to be able to schedule a recurring reminder 30 minutes before the end of the block. Every day at work I have a 2-hour window to complete a certain task, and setting recurring reminders before the window wouldn’t be helpful because I am not allowed to complete it beforehand.

Actually life-changing
I got this app during my freshman year of college shortly after I was diagnosed with ADHD. At that point I was literally breaking down crying once a week over how often I would completely forget an assignment or meeting. I couldn’t stick to any planner and learning how to navigate college while trying to learn what worked for my ADHD was overwhelming to say the least. I saw people online recommended Todoist for their ADHD, so I downloaded it and never looked back. I’m now a couple weeks away from graduating college WITH HONORS!!! This app honestly has helped me so much with organizing my day, remembering what’s due and when meetings and classes are, and helping me to prioritize my tasks so they seem more manageable. I’ve consistently used Todoist nearly everyday since the day I got it and can’t imagine what I’d do without it.
