Almost 5 4/5
Superior app for GTD. Only shortfall is not being able to add multiple calendars to google calendar for multiple projects with the 2-way linked feature.
Again, all else is amazing!!
Excellent To Do list for GTD 5/5
Easy to use. When I learned the Getting Things Done (GTD) approach recently I quickly discovered I needed to try a different To Do list for organizing projects and tasks. I moved to Todoist Premium, set it up as suggested by others with Labels for context and Projects for work and personal tasks. Learned to use Siri to capture tasks quickly in the Todoist Inbox. It was easy to learn and easy to transfer tasks using the web browser based version along with iPhone and iPad apps. Excellent product!
The best out there.... 5/5
By Briman 2015
TODOIST is the best to-do/organizer out there with all those features that you wondered why other to-do apps don’t have. (Like moving all overdue tasks to today with one click). Also with Gmail interface that allows instant creation of tasks related to emails, forward of emails to Todoist as a task and a whole lot of other features. It’s the only task app I have stayed with and use every day!
Simple app, easy tasks 5/5
I found my life becoming incredibly busy, and I was occasionally forgetting to complete some homework assignments and run some errands. Todoist appeared when I was searching for a app, and it's wonderful!
The app is on iOS for my phone, and the web, and a browser extension for good measure.
Across all my devices and planning into the future, Todoist does exactly what I need it to: keep track of my life.
I love much about this app, but I paid for the premium version months ago and today that disappeared and it is trying to charge me again. iTunes shows that I have a current subscription. Without premium the app is pretty useless to me, and it feels like a ripoff.
Integrated with Evernote and its awesome 5/5

All the to dos and the context from Evernote in one link
One (really) annoying missing feature. 4/5
I absolutely L O V E todoist, but i have two complaints/feature requests. Firstly, why doesn’t a parent project show all the tasks in a sub-project? I have individual projects (like work, personal, shopping), and then sub projects to show the different categories (like a sub-project for items i need to buy at specific stores). It’s great for de-cluttering my app. It would be absolutely WONDERFUL to have an option available to have the parent project show all the tasks in the sub-projects. Secondly, why isn’t the drop-down menu to show sub-projects available when you favorite a parent project? These little things are pretty annoying, and i’d really love for you guys to add these things!
Doesn’t make life easier, makes it harder 1/5
There are two huge features of this app is missing which basically make it completely worthless as far as I’m concerned. The first is that it does not have automatic reminders. That means that even if you put in a due date for a task he will not be reminded about it unless you set a reminder, A pretty silly extra step that most to do list apps have already addressed. What makes it even worse is that not only do you have to set a date in order to set a reminder, you also have to set a time that a task is due. It ends up being a bunch of extra steps just to try and put in a task with the due date that you want an automatic reminder about. It’s ridiculous, and if you forget to set the reminder you may end up SOL if you are religiously looking at this app every single day yet relying on it to organize your life and priorities.
The other thing that drives me absolutely bonkers about this app is how poorly sub tasks are managed. You have to be in a certain view in order to make a sub task and it’s not straightforward at all and very obnoxious. I use subtasks all the time, for everything from emails I need to respond to by name or when I think about items in my house I want to donate while I’m decluttering. This app is just completely frustrating in the amount of extra steps that you’re required to take in order to just get your thoughts down on paper. If you aren’t in a specific view and you want to make something a sub task you have to create a task and then go back and edit it and then assign a parent task which involves finding the other task amongst your tax list and assigning it as a parent task so that the task you just made is now a sub task. You have to do this for each and every new task that you want to add as a sub task. In both of these regards I found a Wunderlist to be so much more incredibly straightforward and easy for just recording the things that I have to do. I thought this app had a lot of cool features and already paid for the premium version and now I’m pretty mad about it. I also know that Wunderlist is being retired so I had to find an alternative. I really don’t think this is the task list for me. My brain simply works too much faster with the number of random thoughts that I want to get written down then this app is capable of handling and organize coherent fashion. I’m a single mom a business owner a law school student working on my third Ivy League degree and I have a seriously massive cognitive load, meaning I spent a lot of energy thinking about things that I need to get done and I rely heavily on my to do list app to not only record my thoughts so that I don’t have to spend energy thinking about remembering them, but also to remind me of things that are due with… actual reminders! In the past month or so of using this app I can already feel my life starting to get a little bit out of control and I think that if I continue to use it with these two critically important features missing I’m going to absolutely lose my mind. I hope the developers fix this since I’ve already paid for the app, but even so I’m probably going to look for something else anyway. What a waste of money. (Please ignore grammatical mistakes I was dictating)
Good product but lots of annoying bugs 2/5
On premium. It's a simple and useful product, but it's riddled with bugs. For instance, sub projects do not show up under the parent project on iOS (Android doesn't have this bug). Wanted to file a ticket but that workflow is buggy as well! The message is "failing to send" (tried this on IPhone and iPad). Sigh.
Love it 5/5
Extremely easy to use. Syncs with everything. No annoying ooo up ads like other apps I’ve tried. Simple and perfect for what I need.
Sort by Date? 5/5
Love this app, but I really wish it had a “sort by date” option in the app.
Way better! 5/5
I used to use RTM, but the Apple Watch feature threw me into Todoist ranks. It’s way more integrated with services like IFTT and more adaptable. Absolutely love and share this product always. I even use the paid version.
Surprisingly helpful! 5/5
I was first skeptical of this app because I had yet to find one that I actually thought was more useful than my notes. After a few days I noticed how easy it was to add something as simply a reminder and important information like appointments. Then I started utilizing the flag system but then I didn’t do in order of priority but in order of person it was in regards to. So now I can easily look at all yellow flags and see everything I need to do for that person ie- my Grandmother. This is definitely the best to do app I have used!
I regret paying for this. 3/5
This must be fire CRAZY productive people that juggling a lot. What I need is something that persistently reminds me of what I should be doing. Todoist can’t do that. If you don’t open the app, you get none of your reminders. The “Reminders” app that comes with iphones will leave a persistent banner when items are due until you check them complete.
Love it ‼️ 5/5
I wasn’t always such a productive person but thanks to this app I’m now in charge of my day and get twice as much done.
Reminders should not be a premium feature 2/5
Best design of any to do app I’ve used 5/5
The dark theme is amazing, on iOS and Mac. Serious props to the guys who designed it.
Definitely my favorite to-do app.
Very powerful to do list. 5/5
Todoist is very simple to use, yet very powerful. I’m not sure how I did without it before!
Needs a little help 3/5
Needs date stamping capability which can be placed as needed in the note, like when an entry was made in the note. Adds a handy journaling capability
One of my big three 5/5
If I was ever told that I could only have three productivity programs or apps, An email/calendar program, e.g. Outlook, Evernote, and this app...Todoist. I have tried a lot of task apps and this one simply works!
My year in review is here! Oh boy! 3/5
Yeah, maybe have an option to get rid of that pop up bc it has been bothering me when I'm in a hurry.
This app is saving my sanity! 5/5
By Tarheel Lindsey
I was spending way too much time trying to keep track of future tasks in my head and then doing non-priority projects in inefficient ways just so I didn’t lose track of them! Now I can just think of something I need to do and schedule it for the future. This paired with a weekly review of priorities has made ALL the difference in this busy momma’s life!
Makes organization ALOT easier 4/5
I’ve come to download the app after several months of using the online version, and after a few weeks I can say that the app does all that online version does and more - even without premium.
My only issue has been how inconsistent and buggy some of the controls have been, but considering most of them aren’t repeatable, they aren’t an overshadowing flaw of the app - that being said, I totally recommend!
Lifesaver app! 5/5
Todoist is by far the best task management app I have ever encountered. It has a simple user interface, deceptively simple considering the amount of customization possible. The karma statistics keep me up to date and motivated to keep achieving. The comment and reminder functions are incredibly useful (you can even upload files and documents as supporting materials within your tasks). Lastly the integrations options are myriad.
Todoist on the Apple Watch 2/5
I really want to like Todoist..... but first they raise the price and take away text message alerts... Usually when you pay more they add something, not take something away. And my biggest issue is with the HORRIBLE, sync to the Apple Watch. Take forever to sync, and it’s not always correct on the watch. (The Tasks are more often than not, not in the correct order, or the first item Due is at a later spot on the watch... 1400 always comes after 1200, developers....
Going back to Fantastical, which works Awesome... just like it should... even though I’m not a fan of mostly Events, as opposed to just always Tasks.
Perfect app!!!!!! 5/5
Love it but it NEEDS this 4/5
I hate that I am limited by 7 days viewing all the to dos. Only complaint but it is a big one. This app would be 100% if it could display 2 weeks atleast.
I don’t like how the reminders are for premium customers only.
Great app! 5/5
The best todo list manager on the market. Highly recommended!
watchOS update. 3/5
I have been a big fan and premium user of Todoist for years. I have come to rely on my Apple Watch as well but for me to use them both I need use old watch faces. Apple has released new innovative watch faces but Todoist doesn’t integrate. Todoist needs to update its complication and watchOS to move forward with the technology.
Push notifications 1/5
You had me until I saw push notifications was a paid feature. That’s a huge miss! I’m gonna have to go look and find another app. The basic reminds app on iPhone does push notifications. Why would I use this app 🤷🏻♂️
Best productivity apps 5/5
I’ve tried them all and Todoist is hands down the most intuitive, simple, and scalable with your productivity growth. It’s pro features are 100% worth the investment. The UI and quick keys are extremely useful and will become second nature for fast labeling of tasks, prioritizing and adding due dates. If your looking for a simple task manager or want to customize it or a task manager with some powerful features. This is it. Todoist has changed my life.
Improves Efficiency like no other app 5/5
By OZ Ozmen
There are many “productivity” apps on the market, there is nothing that makes it so easy as ToDoIst app.
Firstly you can have items that has sub-categories. You can label them, assign them to dates (with simple words like “every Monday” or “next Tuesday”) and you can mark priority level. Must have app.
Dumb subscription again 1/5
I am really tired of apps that feel they can drain your funds with dumb subscriptions. I don’t mind paying for an app once but not over and over. Of course they put the valuable features in the subscription making the base app unusable.
Not really worth $36 a year 3/5
It’s a great app, took a chance on the $36 for the year. Not really worth it. The free app was fine. The labels are really the only usable feature for me & since it’s just my wife & I using the app it seems kind of silly to pay $3 a month to label stuff. I will explain why the assignment feature is a pain in the rear later. Even if the free version were to lose features I still don’t think I will pay for this again. There are so many completely free apps out there.
The app isn’t very user friendly, I can’t drag & drop items into different projects and more little annoyances like that. I have to click edit & then go through a serious of tasks to change simple things like project.
Worse feature is the assigning ability. If you use it and assign the task to someone else it doesn’t show up on your today or week list. You can change the filter but then you no longer see your tasks. I eluded to this before, the app is a lot of work to use. For instance my wife & I were scheduling to clean the garage. I assigned tasks for me & for her. However we could not see the whole project on that day unless we went directly to the project list in which case we couldn’t see what other things we had to do that day. Not worth $$$$.
A feature I do hope the developers add is a monthly view and a calendar view but would only be useful if you could drag & drop tasks to the specific days. To schedule a task now you must go to edit, schedule & then read a list of preset options or click on a day of the month. Or when you press on a task a group of 5 pics pop up. A check, a calendar, a comment box, an alarm clock & the edit button. I won’t use the comment, alarm or check buttons so that’s useless to me too... can’t customize it to be useful to me.
If something is a high priority the app doesn’t allow you to move it below another task. For instance if washing the dog is a high priority but you would like to do it after you take her to the park it will say “Wash Dog” then “Take Dog to Park” and you cannot switch it unless you make the park a higher priority but again that’s a time drain.
Great free app, paying for the other features is not necessary for because the features are almost useless. Kicking myself for not using the 30 day free option first.
Best cross-platform task app 5/5
See less syncs between iOS, Android, web and even Alexa! Shared tasks with multiple accounts allow families to add tasks to each other’s lists and share responsibilities.
Good but... 2/5
By mn. czswasefghiklp
This app is useful and helpful except for all the in app purchases. There are so many of them and they really limit what you can do on this app.
Great app!! 5/5
I was having problems remembering to do things OR I would find myself doing one thing but obsessing in my mind over something else. I started to write stuff down but then would leave the paper at home when I went to work or vice versa. One of the guys on Syntax podcast recommended this app and it’s amazing. Clear mind now to work on what’s in front of me. You guys should sponsor that podcast because I’m sure I’m not the only one they’ve referred.
Changed my workflow! 5/5
I’m a young gun in the tech world, new to a fully remote work from home job. Todoist has helped me take control of my work day!
Isn’t it time for Apple Watch S4 complications already? 3/5
What’s taking so long?
A one stop shop 5/5
By satisfied project manager
At first, I was bit reluctant to opt out for the premium version and just continued to use all the free features that this app had to offer.
At one point, a buddy of my mind said “just give it a shot, what’s $35 for a years subscription” So I gave it a shot and let me tell you, best purchase in awhile.
Being a project manager and being able to track and actually follow up on things can become a bit overwhelming. This app just makes my work enjoyable. I can’t really put my finger on it, could be the beautiful dark mode? The ability to comment my tasks while simultaneously attaching files with the ability to do it through my computer, Dropbox, Google Drive and adding those separate yet crucial links? Is the ability to work in projects and break that project down how you want to (to a degree)? Is it that this app is integrated with so many of the apps that I use, like Spark, Chrome, Dropbox etc? A big shout to the developers for all of there hard for putting together an app that just works, without the complications and hassles that come with a lot today’s apps.
A few things that the developers/product owners/founders/investors should consider:
1) a tad bit more customization when working in projects + some more free templates (you guys really should add more templates for Project Managers/Product Owners, no matter how much you hate them :) ), as offered on your site.
2) more color choices please and/or symbols to differentiate between projects!!!
3) deepened Siri shortcut capabilities such as “Hey Siri, remind me to find a resource to scope the AICC Package Integration for [said project].
4) consider allowing someone with a todoist premium account to add 3-5 free users who they can assign tasks to and giving those said assigned users the ability to comment on the tasks that a premium account owner has assigned them to, even if they have a free account. PLEASE!!!! 🙏
Thank you for a wonderful app and hope you guys continue to scale!
Too busy :-( 3/5
I loved the interface and ideas, but it takes too long to set up a basic list for me. And the recurring set up seems a bit fussy.
If they could add an immediate add list feature where you see right away when starting that would be ideal.
Great app, but lots of syncing issues 3/5
Great app, but lots of syncing issues
Pretty useful task list organizer 4/5
I’ve been using Todoist for a while now. I find this one simple to use, pretty easy to learn and get started right away. I also like that they gave me a fairly generous amount of time to fully evaluate the pro version to decide if I want the additional functionality. Honestly it works great, even without the pro features, but they are a nice bonus.
Three things keep me from giving it 5 stars. While using the pro feature, the notifications for reminders are inconsistent. I want a push notification to my phone or watch, but sometimes it works other times it doesn’t.
The other thing, and I find this with most task apps, is that you can only assign one date. I would like to have several dates and milestones along the way. I know there are ways around this, but I just want to be able to tell myself to start something on a specific date but keep the due date when it is actually due.
When you have sub tasks with different due dates they don’t reference their parent tasks, so it can be a bit confusing if you have several tasks with similar steps or sub tasks to be completed. I also want repeating tasks with sub tasks to refresh when the task refreshes, but I am not sure it works that way.
Not so good 2/5
By Quark Gluon Plasma
Based on functionality, and using a grading scale with A high and F low, this is at best a C app. The outline format is strange: you only see sub-projects in the side panel. New releases are often buggy. There is not much evidence of thoughtful design, but it does the basics. However, the "free forever" version is crippled and nags mercilessly. The annual fee is high, and there are better free alternatives, and much, much better cheaper ones.
It’s a must 5/5
By Brad Wolford
This program is organizing my business and it’s 15 employees. It has improved communications and accountability through the firm and we have remote workers across the US
Want to succeed? Show up every day for two years 5/5
I'm finding out that persistence beats everything else. Action not perfection is the key.
This app helps put everything into perspective. Getting you organized and helping you accomplish with a set routine.
If you're a business owner this is a life saver. Heck! It's a life saver for whoever wants to get things done.
Watch Carl Pullein YouTube videos to get the most out of it.
Keeps getting better and better 5/5
Initially this app help me tackle a few complex work projects, but now it has become an essential tool for personal and professional growth. With each update it gets better and better.
Keep up the good work!
Terribly efficient, love it! 5/5
By Meditation timer user
Just love this app. Your phone is always right there so this a convenient way to keep all those thoughts about things you have to do moving out of your head to a place you can capture it. I am a GTD fan (David Allen’s method) and this app is the best way to keep it all organized. Then when you want to print things or organize it differently than you can do it on your phone, just move to your desktop! I also love the way to move tasks back and forth on your phone, just move with your finger. You have to give this app a try.
