Most recent update not syncing 1/5
Keep receiving error messages and having sync issues since the new update 6 days ago. Please fix!!
Better than Losing data 4/5
It syncs from Alexa via IFTTT so we use it for our Shopping list. Immeasurably better than Amazon's built in to-do list (which restarts EVERY time I switch iPhone apps and painfully shows the Amazon logo for 50 seconds)! It also hasn't lost my list 3 times around Christmas like Wunderlist did, sorry kids.
Frustrated with recurring tasks,Siri 3/5
The good: really like that the way you can assign parent tasks to break down larger jobs. The main issues I have is A) Entering recurring tasks seems cumbersome to me. I still can’t figure out how to repeat a task on a Saturday every 6 months. B) Almost useless with Siri. No mater what, Siri can’t understand the word Tadoist. So basically I have to add an Apple reminder and manually transfer it. Juice not worth the squeeze. I Probably will not subscribe to this app, and may just go back to stock reminders if it continues to frustrate.
Partially broken Siri integration 2/5
This AppStore page advertises Siri integration - and that’s true, but only parts of it work.
Adding a task seems to work, but “Show me all the tasks for today in Todoist” doesn’t work. It returns “didn’t see any matching items”, but if you ask “Show me all the tasks for the next seven days in Todoist” it will work, and shows you the tasks for today that it could not return before!
Synchronization is off 2/5
I really wish that these folks would fix this feature. It is very frustrating to have to consistently mark a task as finished on four different devices.
Life changing 5/5
This app is wonderful. It somehow provides both peace of mind and also energizes/excites productivity. I recommend reading “Getting Things Done” (Allen) and using that methodology along with this app. I’m a huge fan, keep up the good work with this app guys!
Great for school!! 5/5
This is one of the best list apps i’ve used and i find it very helpful for school. i can label different projects as my different classes and use it to keep track of hw and tests. i love how it’s free to sync between my phone and computer so i can easily see what i have to do.
I think it would be really helpful if there was a calendar view so you could see the months and tasks that are farther out instead of just the next 7 days.
Small problem 3/5
Great app that I run my life off of but right now notes don’t show on mobile.
Badge should show for tasks not due until, day, 9pm 3/5
I have evening tasks that are thus inactionable during the day and so the badge showing those tasks are distracting. Please check out the Strides app’s setting of showing the badge only for *alerted* tasks for a model that works. Thanks!
By Alexa Rosario
I USUALLY loveeeee Todoist (wrote a few blogs about how awesome you guys are too) but syncing between mobile and desktop randomly stopped working. I work on the go, so this is KILLING me.
Updated header broken 3/5
The updated header with the new progress indicator updates only occasionally, if at all. This has been the case since it was introduced.
Time and date isn't working well 2/5
I've been a paid user for years. Lately the time and date natural language input is not working. Anytime I try to set it, even manually without natural language input, it doesn't seem to accept the date on the iOS app. Please fix. Thanks!
4 Star app competing with 3 Star apps gets a 5 5/5
Other than a handful of small bugs this app is the best to-do list app I’ve found.
One of the best . . If not THE best 5/5
Todoist is an extraordinary productivity app that manages one’s projects (short term and long term) along with the daily chores, errands and tasks. It does an outstanding job when used with a GTD mindset. It can set up with as much complexity as you wish, but it also excels on a very simple level. Adding tasks is really easy and can be done in several ways including options that do not involve opening the app. (It also integrates with hundreds of other apps and with voice assistants such as Siri and Alexa.) I tried other apps, but none come close to Todoist.
Not worth it 2/5
Overall it was a pretty good app with an simple interface but the fact that you only get push notifications for the subscription fee is ridiculous. I’ll switch back to Apple Reminders
Great app but needs more features 4/5
I would love it if we could create filter and label folders. For instance, I have a lot of school filters and labels, and it is a very long list, so organizing them based on category should be essential. I have filters for things I have not started yet, which requires a label not there ([email protected]
) and lots of other things like questions for teachers and easy homework and critical things, it’s awesome. The filters are amazing. But I need to organize them more.
Make a drag and drop quick add subtask feature like Things to do manager, it would make adding sub tasks to parents very easy.
Thanks! If I had those features this would be 5 stars.
Needs synchronization support 5/5
Synchronization is inconsistent - I have lost my task list twice now. It is a solid app but this one hiccup keeps me from continuing premium subscription.
import from wunderlist does not preserve the tag 1/5
tag in wunderlist should be mapped into label
Love it overall, but... 4/5
There is a bug. I put phone numbers in comments if it’s a reminder to call someone. However, when I touch the phone number to place the call, the app crashes instead.
Falling short 3/5
This used to be a forward thinking app. But as others have mentioned the features lacking on the IOS version, tasks disappearing and sync issues it is looking like a mess especially compared to apps like Things which can link directly back to Apple mail messages even when forwarded via email, shows my calendar, can apply tags to projects, allows search ahead anywhere, and just works more smoothly for common tasks.
Needs Some Improvement 3/5
I am a heavy task user. I believe a lot of my success in my career was due to my utilizing task management systems.
I was utilizing computer based task systems back in 1994. I love them.
I’ve been through all the best in class task management apps. Most recently I used Wunderlist, but wanted to get ahead of the Microsoft mess, and jumped to Todoist.
Overall Todoist is amazing. I’m doing things I just dreamed of with my old systems. Custom filters - incredible!!
I’m a little frustrated with the iOS app though. Here are a couple items that need to be fixed:
1. The ability to duplicate tasks. A lot of my tasks are kind of repetitive in their setup. I know I can use the Mac app to do this. Why can’t I click duplicate task on iOS? This would be great for me.
2. Sorting. They really need to improve sorting. There really isn’t a good way to do it on iOS. I have a label called “priority”. I will only label a few things (up to 5) with this. I want to manually sort these in order of work priority. When I try, it just goes back to alphabetical. Also, I have a project with multiple recurring items by due date. There is no way to sort this by due date. It’s absolutely worthless to view this project on iOS - it’s such a mess because there is no sorting. Please do some work so there are multiple sort options on iOS.
An UNDO option is a MUST 3/5
Went to delete an empty Project that had 43 sub-projects listed and it deleted all! I thought I was deleting just the one (I clicked into the singular empty Project) and I deleted all 43.
My premium ran out 3 days before (I was going to sign back up this week) and I had to sign up for premium immediately to have access to my back-up from three days before and had to import each single subtask. To make matters worse, every tasking which I had 'ev month, ev day,' etc. defaulted to today forcing me to go back through each and reset all the dates.
This could have easily been avoided if there was an UNDO button! Or at the very least the opportunity to undo from the Activity Log.
My life lives in To-Doist and the thought that one accidental deletion could wipe out hundreds of hours of work. This to me needs to be a priority for my continued support.
I like this app - a lot. 4/5
This to do list is well thought out, well designed, and integrates well with Alexa.
Could be great but inconsistent notifications! 3/5
Like a lot of people said there’s a serious syncing issues between devices. The PC app to the Chrome extension, to Mac, to mobile (Android and iOS)
I can’t really trust them to remind me to do all tasks. When it works it’s great, but these inconsistencies cause too many headaches. Hopefully things are fixed before my subscription ends otherwise I may search for another solution.
Todoist review 5/5
It's been almost three years since I used Todoist. The use is for my personal and professional life. It is an application that I recommend any player who wants to organize, plan and carry out their best practices in any scenario. I'm going to highlight a series of elements that I like about Todoist and I hope they serve for people who are looking for a reference about it. They are the following:
* Clean design Minimalist
* Fast application in all operating systems.
* It is an adaptable tool. Each one can use projects, filters and labels to give the desired context and consider necessary in their tasks.
* An inbox, today and a next time 7 days mark the way to start using the application.
* Karma system with a score that gives you a state or profile that evolves from beginner to enlightened. I am a great teacher, almost enlightened. Is very close.
* Tasks allow voice notes, comments, attachments and everything that can be written with natural language.
* You can organize each task by time or if you prefer the function of the assigned day and in the function of the priorities that you have to manage the best order that you require according to the occasion.
This way it can be an idea of Todoist's potential. By the way, the synchronization works perfectly, it is very strange that they have problems and that they have them through their twitter account @Todoist always realizes it. They offer timely and quick support by mail or via Twitter.
If you want to deepen the organization of your life is in the tool and depends on each person as the best. By the way, you have to be a premium subscriber to be able to take advantage of all the benefits.
Outlook Tasks 1/5
Todoist is a task app. Todoist has Outlook Plug-in. Todoist does not sync Outlook tasks. Let that sink in for a moment.
Not Quite There Yet 2/5
As a paid subscriber, for over a year, I've seen some incremental improvements, but to be honest it's still a very frustrating app. To be fair it has some strong features such as the smart text scheduling (type tomorrow and it recognizes the date). It's two weakest points are its cluttered Ui and an inconsistent experience when switching between tablet, phone, desktop, and even web app.
First the Ui is so cluttered that lists quickly look daunting and stressful the moment you add more than three things. A cleaner minimalist design could take this app to the next level. Other apps, such as Any.do or things, have such a streamlined appearance but still convey just as much and sometimes more info in a user friendly way.
Second, the experience between devices feels very inconsistent. Major tools are accomplished in a different way, in a different place, or missing altogether as you jump from web to desktop to phone. Even the keyboard shortcuts change. Seriously. Much could be done to help the user transition between devices without feeling a major disconnect.
In short this app is building some great things and I really want it to be great, but it's just not there. It's so close (And that's part of the frustration). It's very nearly the app to have.
Latest UI mini-refresh has dominoes the app 2/5
By Gurgen B.
This latest you are you refresh has been terrible. To have projects/labels/filters horizontally in tab format was perfect. They went and stacked them vertically. I guess that’d be ok if you had a handful of projects, labels, and filters, but not if you have 50 projects and a dozen filters and labels each. This used to be the near-perfect app and the best of the bunch, despite near-embarrassing HTML desktop apps.
Think about it, this hurts the power users the most, which are probably 100 times more likely to be paid subscribers. They will be leaving you in droves if you don’t fix this in my opinion.
Please think about it. 38k Karma level.
Perfect for me! 5/5
By Gary T Wilkes
Exactly what I was looking for! I was needing an app that could send me great notifications for the things I needed to do. This app does just that in great timely manner as well. Very easy to use I definitely would recommend!
Disappointing product and service 2/5
I paid for the premium subscription and used it for a year. I like the idea of this app and when it works correctly it’s great. But there are too many issues that are never fixed - if you change time zones your timed reminders all change and you just have to hope and pray it fixes; sometimes the app doesn’t refresh for the new day and so reminders for that morning don’t come through. I even reached out to customer service about these issues and they never even bothered to respond to help me figure out if it was user error or a bug. Just completely not worth the money.
Meh, but integrations. 3/5
I don’t like the interface, it’s hard to use, cluttered, not intuitive. (And seriously, how many times should you have to tap a task for it to open?)
There is no “all tasks” view - only sorted views.
Customer service is non-existent (and I’m a premium subscriber).
I would bail on Todoist in a second if there were another app with integrations like Todoist has.
Updates create problems 3/5
Last update removed reminder of time and date. It has done this on prior updates. Very frustrating.
Needs Alexa integration 4/5
Love so many things about Todoist but lack of integration with Alexa is a miss.
Found my To Do App 5/5
I have gone through a fair number of "to do" apps. I think I'm going to stick with this one for quite some time. First, if you get this, you've got to get the paid version. For what it provides, the price is not that bad IMO, especially if you're using this on a daily basis.
The paid version of the app is feature rich and does all the things I need it to do, which include:
- Individual color-coded lists
- Ability to prioritize tasks
- Ability to translate natural language inputs (e.g., I just have to write "Schedule meeting by tomorrow at 5:00 PM" and it automatically does the due date, avoiding the need to scroll through calendars and enter dates separately. It will also do this with contacts and a few other items)
- Ability to create tasks and subtasks (this is gesture-based and I had to google how to do it, but it works very well)
- Offers swipe feature capabilities.
- Can use on a variety of platforms; this is really important to me because during the course of the day, I use several computers and my iPHone, all on different platforms. The ability to access this via the web is HUGE for me.
Overall, this is a very robust and solid to do app. It's great for managing multiple projects, both at work and home.
I also love that it integrates with Trello, a team-based app I've been starting to use at work. I set up an IF recipe that automatically sends Trello items assigned to me to my Todoist app. It works beautifully and makes the two apps so perfect together.
I also tried a couple of other apps along with this one, including Wunderlist and Any.do, but for a variety of reasons, ToDoist won by a landslide.
2017 update: just happily renewed for another year. I continue to use this app on a daily basis to manage both personal tasks as well as a variety of complex work-related tasks. At work I manage multiple complex projects and this app continues to serve me well in that environment. For me, this app has been well worth the money and has really helped me stay on top of all the stuff I have to do. I also recently started using Bear for notes and was pleasantly surprised to discover that I could easily link notes in Bear to associated tasks! These apps work beautifully together for an awesome productivity suite.
Early 2018 update: continue to consistently use this app to manage work and personal projects. At this point, with my work divided across multiple large projects, I'm using this app on an daily and often hourly basis. I've downloaded and even paid to use a few other to do apps but always find they lack the deep features provided by Todoist. Sync works great, I love the support for Markdown, and the app is flexible enough to easily accommodate simple lists to detailed projects. I don't use the team collaboration feature but could definitely see its utility. My only gripe at this point is the lack of view customization with the iPhone, most importantly the lack of DARK MODE
Love the update 5/5
Last update is awesome in terms of sluggish. Is quite fast the app, congrats.
Wow! This is getting superb! 5/5
Incredibly it use to not have a direct way for search.... BASIC!!!
Now it does, and it’s great.
Please add sounds to sliding done to a task... or postponing or finishing today’s tasks...... a good sound like sw....
Great app!!! I like it even more now, will be expecting those great updates. Thanks!
Been a user for years 4/5
Been a user for years and love it, but needs a family price option. I can’t justify paying premium for each person in my family, just to have the ability to have access to the tags and filters for our chores project and my husband and I to collaborate on the groceries project and bills project. Also, I’m a business owner Ava would love to be able to use tags and filters with clients on their projects, but the free level doesn’t give them the ability to use them. Super frustrating and limiting. Otherwise, best app out there. Use it daily, can’t live without it.
Be careful 1/5
I used the app for years. Recently it stopped working on my iPad. I contacted support and they told me to log out and back in. The only option I could see was to delete. So I did that. It deleted my account and all data. I’ve been told that I should have been warned, but I thought I was simply following instructions. Apparently there is no way to restore my data. I will be looking for a better solution for my todo lists.
Please allow the general overview page to be selected as a start page. I don’t want to go to the today, inbox, next 7 day tabs, etc on start. I want to see everything and select whichever I need to go to. Should be pretty simple. Thanks!
The best! 5/5
This app has been amazing. We tested several other project management apps and this one came out on top for the following reasons: 1. The gmail integration works great. 2. Alexa integration is awesome. 3. Google Calendar integration works solid. 4. Easy learning curve for our less tech savvy managers. Just a great product overall! Thanks Doist!
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!
