Great app 5/5
Use this every day, love it
SIMPLE & ROCK SOLID 5/5
Simple, Rock Solid, and very flexible to do app. Tried many others but keep coming back. Have used it for years. Can integrate with wide range of apps and platforms. Reliable - Simple - Always Syncs. Love it!
They listen and respond to suggestions and support is always responsive in my experience. Had this app for years and trust it!
Pretty decent organizational app 4/5
Pretty good app for organizing your life into lists. I’d love for the app to have some of the features which exist on the desktop version - for instance the ability to sort list projects based on date or priority.
Could be great... but still lacking 3/5
I have tried to love ToDoist and make it the only productivity/task tracking app I’d ever want, but the truth is that I’m still looking. I’m a paid subscriber because I need push notifications. For some reason, though, the folks at ToDoist still don’t have everything straightened out. Syncing is painfully off consistently. I used the Windows desktop app at work and then swap to my iPhone for personal tasks away from the computer. If I do anything with a task on a separate device, background syncing almost never works, especially desktop to phone. I have background app refresh enabled but ToDoist will flash task reminders on my phone for items I’ve checked off from my computer. Plus, the UX/UI is different across all devices... even from my work Windows 10 laptop to my MacBook Air! I’m not just talking shortcuts, I’m talking about buttons for filtering, editing and ordering tasks. Why isn’t this consistent across devices? And added on further is the time it takes to edit or even delete tasks. Deleting a task is just too many steps.
The main thing that keeps me coming back is the native language input, which can be a huge time saver. If ToDoist didn’t have this, then the app wouldn’t be worth paying for at all.
Almost amazing... 3/5
- can’t use Siri on Watch
- no dark mode / night theme
- force touch icon to quickly add tasks isn’t quick
ToDoist is the beat task management app I’ve used in a long while (and I spend a lot of time reviewing productivity apps, launch center pro, workflow, fantastical etc).
It’s rough around the edges. They have this wonderful English language recognition and the only place it works is in the quick add when you’re already looking at a list - not the new task button or, infuriatingly, the icon’s force touch menu.
If you force touch the icon and choose add task one expects to get a quick add, after all that’s why you didn’t just open the app right? But no, you get the default create screen that requires you to tap into each field, date, project, label, etc to set that info, which is tedious and forever taking when compared to just writing “ToDoist update force touch action p1 tomorrow #thingsQCshouldhavefound”
See, isn’t that easier?
Get on it ToDoist - you’re a leader in GTD, act like my time and taps have worth eh?
ToDoist also doesn’t support night mode. Which is weird because it’s not like it’s an intensely graphical app, just make a dark style guide, there are a dozen for the web app via grease money or stylish. Come on.
Finally, while they’re very proud of Siri integration (and it’s just ok on iPhone) there is STILL no support for Apple Watch. It just tells you to open your phone - which is useless and frustrating. Why even register it with Siri on the watch if all it can do is tell me off?
I paid for the premium strictly for the SMS notifications feature, and it doesn’t work. The test message works, but not the actual ones. Very such a touted feature and they label it as “never forget/worry-free” this is just unacceptable — especially for such a high price. Their support is non-existent, too... Any.Do is better
Great App, Terrible Version 2/5
I love Todoist! I've been using it every day for almost two years. So my issue is not with the app itself. I love it! However, this and the previous version have had major glitches! This version doesn't sync with my MacBook app and so I have to choose one device to work from. No bueno.
Great app, but REALLY needs sorting! 2/5
A solid app, but missing some features present in other versions (Android App has sorting).
Critical Flaw 2/5
Decent app, but it’s pretty ridiculous that being able to set reminders is a paid feature. I can just use the iOS reminders app for that, making this close to useless.
Repeating Alarms? 5/5
Would really appreciate having repeating alarms for certain tasks. I love the app!
Favorite To-Do App 5/5
By S Stephenson
Simple and clean.
Very happy with product but two simple requests 5/5
I'm a premium member and I'm very pleased with the addition with deep integration with google calendar. I get a strong grasp of my day to day with this feature alone. My previous first love was todo.txt so my style heavily revolves around using the labels to separate my tasks and projects.
Two things I would love implemented:
1. Add task widget similar to the android app. I don't actually have to open the app and fiddle with the menus making the experience easier. This makes the inboxing process less tedious and brings me to ease, especially with how easy it is to add labels and hash tags.
2. Make it easy to add subtasks under individual tasks through the menu possibly instead of having to rely on drag and drop, especially if your inbox is huge. I know you have a separate projects menu, but completed tasks don't stick around the same. I see huge potential in this for outlining purposes and because I already separate using labels it's basically double work.
These two things though simple would exponentially improve what's already been a wonderful experience. Thank you for making cloud computing easier for me and continue the good work.
Terrible UI/30-day money-back guarantee not valid 2/5
I was switching from a Mac to a PC and looking for a replacement to the many wonderful apps for the former. This was suggested in an article so I tried it out, figuring as they offered a 30-day money back guarantee, I had nothing to lose. The app is terrible if you manage more than a grocery list. I'm unable to check off tasks from the desktop app. Sub-projects rearrange themselves and sync lags. I requested the refund within 2 days (never done this before for an app) and was told it's not valid if purchased through App Store. I'm not sure what other places I could have purchased an iOS app. Todoist hasn't responded to inquiries about tech problems so I'm stuck with something that doesn't work. If you ONLY need an app on your phone and only have a few tasks to remember, there are plenty of apps that cost less than $30.
Great but now crashing constantly on iOS 10.3.3 4/5
Great app but current version crashes constantly on iOS 10.3.3.
Absolutely perfect 5/5
This app has completely changed the way I do my job. It helps me stay on task and make sure I get everything done when it needs to be done. The ability to link tasks to specific projects definitely helps me stay organized, and the 7 day view gives you a good idea as to what’s to come. I love how I can have the app on my iPhone, iPad, and Mac, and everything stays in sync. Also, I definitely recommend upgrading to Premium. Thank y’all for such a great app. Keep it up!
Recently switched and not looking back 5/5
What I like is I can easily have sub Projects and sub items of sub tasks. In other words, nesting folders. I can drag an item up and down in my list, or left and right to nest an item under another. For example, I can have a shopping list project, but then have sub projects for different stores, with a sub list for each, for groceries and electronics. Also, I have 100+ items on my to do list but having four levels of priorities helps me focus on what is important and urgent. I researched and downloaded several to-do apps, and this is the clear winner for me. If I was to design my own to-do list app it would be Todoist. I love the clean UI. I use it on my iPhone, iPad, MacBook and Windows machine. I only explored to-do apps recently because I used and loved Wunderlist for years (RIP). Had I known the functionality of Todoist, I would have used this instead, years ago!
Plz, Design and Calendar 4/5
By Alê Meirelles
One of the best to-do apps but the design is too "squared". Make it smooth like things 3 and put a calendar plz
Very flexible. Ugly UI. 4/5
I purchased this app for two reasons: two way integration with Google Calendar (I have it in my iOS calendar app which allows me to view tasks and appointments within Todoist and/or the monthly view in the calendar app), and I can access Todoist on the web platform using my work PC since I have all Apple products.
- Easy to use
- Multiple platforms
- Not expensive
- Ugly UI (Things 3 dominates this but lacks the 2 things I mentioned above)
- needs more color options
- Needs a monthly calendar view (only has 7 day upcoming view)
All platforms 4/5
This is currently the only to do app that can be used on all platforms. iOS, pc, chrome. Although syncing can be hard sometimes, but this app is the only option now.
Looks good but.... 3/5
By Renzo Fortini
Wayy too many that are very simple are not free , like a reminder alarm are you serious ? If there was a free trail ok i would understand because then i will know if i like the app but i dont see one anywhere besides that it looks fine
Generally fantastic - 10.3.3 crashing constantly 4/5
Crashing on item save/edit constantly using OS 10.3.3 and current version. Please review.
Do not buy this app 1/5
I have downloaded the app due to good reviews on YouTube. I was hoping to sync my two calendars and manage my task and goals. I have bought a year subscription- expensive one with out that you can not sync your cal.
So I have wrote to app developers about the issue and didn’t got any answer or my money back with in late two weeks.
This is very unprofessional + the app has malfunctions that they don’t fix.
DON’T BUY IT.
Good but inefficient UI 3/5
It has nice Seri integration and all the features you’d expect from a good task manager but I find the UI frustrating.
Most notably to view details of a task you always have to click twice. Once on the task, only to be presented with a submenu where you have to click again. It seems trivial but after trying to use it for a week I gave up out of annoyance.
It also doesn’t have check boxes next to tasks, instead you have to swipe to complete. Again, seems trivial but when I’m shopping I like to quickly check off a dozen things and having to swipe each one is more time consuming.
It also requires a Premium subscription for the most basic of features.
If you’re looking to switch over from Wunderlist I’m afraid TickTick is a better option with a more familiar interface.
Needs One More Thing 4/5
It’s a great app, and maybe this is just me, but I wish there was a way to x-out things you didn’t get to and receive negative points for them, rather than having to reschedule them for another day, or worse, check them off even though you haven’t done them. It’s a mental thing, but a big one. Let me give you an example.
I hate exercising. Hate it. So of course it’s on my Todoist list of daily chores. But, at the end of the day last week I didn’t exercise because I didn’t feel well or feel like it. Now, what I wanted to do was x that off my list, like “see, you don’t get the satisfaction of marking it complete! And you get negative karma points! Don’t do it again!” So that I’d be motivated to complete it the next day. But instead I was forced to either a) check it complete even though I’d skipped it or b) reschedule it (but since it was a reoccurring event, it didn’t need to be rescheduled). I tried to find a way to x-it but all I could do was delete it and then re-make the task. Not what I was looking for. So, I hesitantly marked it complete, knowing this was bad for my mental game. As expected, the next time I skipped it it was much easier to hit the “complete” check and pretend I’d done it. And then it got easier and easier. And soon, the tasks that I hated I simply checked off like I’d done them, because there was no way to say I hadn’t.
A small thing. A simple thing. Obviously my mental game should be better. But it’s not and it’s why I got a to-do app in the first place, and I wish it held me more accountable when I failed because I need all the help I can get.
Best to do list 5/5
Best cross platform to do list. Keeps it simple so I can focus on achieving results
Except for the part where you forced me to become a premium member just to receive notifications which I had already intended to do but you chose notifications to be the reason. I’ve got an overly sensitive expectation of respect honor kindness and intelligence vs cunningness. When I saw what you chose, “notifications are for premium members” I slumped in my chair before becoming furious that anyone thought I was that stupid. That minuscule . I was offended and insulted, I simply deleted the app. I can use my iPhone calendar to do exactly the same thing plus get 2
(Two) notifications. You almost hit the mark. What a shame greed took over your decisions. Imagine “premium google”
Alexa works well 5/5
I discovered Todoist while using Alexa. My wife and I use it all day - every day… For simple grocery items all the way to complicated tasks. Highly recommend.
Can't unsubscribe or delete account 1/5
By Bob Nation
Much like a virus.
Best app to boost productivity 5/5
I have been using Todoist for a year and I absolutely love it. I use it to keep track of all my to-do’s, both at work and in my personal life. It makes it easy to figure out what the top priorities are for every day so I can stay focused on getting the most important things done.
I upgraded to Premium and gave my assistant a subscription and now we collaborate with the app. I love seeing the notification pop up when she completes a task, it makes it effortless to know she is getting things done.
Latest update made app sluggish, less responsive 3/5
I really dig the Web API for this app. I look forward to UX bug fixes.
Reminders are only for premium subscription 2/5
As I go to set up my first task , I try to set a reminder and I need to buy a premium subscription? The reminders are the #1 thing I NEED. It’s the whole reason why I was even trying this app. I unfortunately have to delete this app. I refuse to pay for something that I’m not sure will even work for me . It’s a shame . Very disappointed.
Great service - unusable on Apple Watch 2/5
Todoist is great...unless you want to use the WATCH app. Watch syncing (with the phone) is painfully slow (when it updates with new tasks [it often doesn’t!!]), and marking tasks completed only works a small proportion of the time.
I don’t all to do list, this is by far my favorite 5/5
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..
My favorite 5/5
Great app. Very useful, easy to use. I love the clean interface. And I haven’t encountered any bugs since I’ve been using it. Very dependable app.
The only thing I’d change is how sub tasks are handled. I find it awkward adding them to existing tasks.
Great and clean 4/5
Great app that has a nice interface. I really wish there was a sorting option for lists. Also steep price to pay for notifications :/
Apple Watch: Comments 3/5
@TODOIST: Please add ability to review task-specific *comments* using Apple Watch. This would make my life (and hopefully others) 10x more productive/easier - thanks!
Fantastic App 5/5
Not much mire to it! Smart commands, beautiful layout, and simplistic design. Highly recommend it to individuals who want to be more proactive!
Needs Start dates 4/5
Great app/platform. Also extremely intuitive with dates, filters, etc. However, start/defer dates would be HUGE. I was a serious OmniFocus user until I got a new job where I could no longer use my Mac. My only knock on Todoist is that it doesn’t have the start dates. If it did, OmniFocus would be an after thought.
I had to stop using this app. There is something that my brain does not like about that today screen it’s just to cluttered and not easy to separate task. It’s a great app as far as features but the task look so cluttered to me that it almost overwhelms.
Unable to share a project on iPhone 8 2/5
When try to type the Persons email to share the project the app crashed.
You need to fix this and will be 5 stars 3/5
By Andy Duncan
It wastes so much time that activities don’t order themselves when you set a fixed time. If I schedule something for 9:00 AM and something for 11:00 AM I want to see the 9:00 AM activity higher in the list. This should not be so difficult to do and would make it a much more useful tool and would cause me to use time instead of waiting.
Everything else I like, even syncing after the last update but this should have been done long time ago.
Fix the Widget 4/5
Amazing app. Fix the widget. It shows old tasks or doesn’t update in the main app when you check something in the widget (and vice versa). Still the best there is despite that.
Best Task Manager for Watch 4/5
I am writing this review because I recently opened Todoist on my Watch for the first time in a while, and was blown away by its feature set. Sure, adding tasks, changing due dates, moving items to new lists, etc. are things users EXPECT on the iPhone, but until Series 3 came out, weren’t really feasible on the Watch. The devs really pulled off a stunning update for the Watch, and now I can say this is hands down the best and most fully featured task manager on the Watch. Blows competition like OmniFocus out of the water. Task management makes a lot of sense on a wearable, but so far it seems only Todoist understands that. Bravo.
App not performing well w new updates 1/5
Been a long time user, but new update is causing lots of features to not work anymore, specifically around added tasks from other apps
Not Wunderlist; but close 3/5
If you could search the completed tasks for something recurring, e.g. - groceries then I would give this 5-stars. Instead one must scroll through 200 items on the grocery list. What makes it even more frustrating is you have to ask for more & more completed tasks to view them; it won’t all of them at once.
Will we EVER... 1/5
By Dr. Mega-cool
...get an option for Dark Mode? It's literally the only feature Todoist doesn't have keeps me demoing other todo apps all while using Todoist in the background.
A simple toggle to turn the 'white' spaces into pure black would be huge and extend the battery life on iPhone X! Please add this!
Not for Apple Watch 2/5
This app has an Apple Watch app as well but lists never populate on the watch. Very odd and frustrating
Completes My Life! 5/5
I can’t think back to the time before I had this app in my life, only because it’s too painful to remember. Haha! I have completed over 20k tasks and have been using this app for almost 2 years now. I highly suggest you download this app as it keeps your life in order. I use it for work, my non-profit work and even my personal life.
Best Out There 5/5
I have spent years looking for the best to do list app. I have a 5 page document on my google drive of what I want out of one, so you know I’m serious. Todoist is by no means my dream application, but it is the best list out there, hands down. The scheme isn’t incredibly beautiful, but smooth, and it is very easy to adjust. Every feature is useful, relevant, and out of sight. It is functional but not cluttered. It can handle both grocery lists and heavy/complicated project sorting. Trust me. After years of searching, no matter how many times I quit Todoist in search for my dream app I always came crawling back. It is awesome, and definitely the best out there.
Terribly slow 3/5
Terribly slow app for the watch. Amazing on other devices though.
