Todoist is a mobile App that has existed for a long, long time, worth noting is that the App has evolved in recent years into a powerful, cross-platform productivity tool. Todoist available on the web, for iOS and Android with desktop apps for Windows and OSX, add-ons for Firefox and Chrome, plug-ins for email apps like Postbox, Gmail, Thunderbird, and Outlook, and more.
The App free and feature is characterized with a lot of features. Todoist provides chronic tasks with fine, plain-language recurrence options. It also contains many sub-tasks and dependencies, real-time syncing, projects and sub-projects so you can manage daily checklists or big plans that engage lots of people, understandable due dates (like “Friday at 5pm,” for example), numerous priorities, categories and projects you can set, and more.
An amount of $30/yr can get users a premium account, which is required if they want notifications or reminders via email or push notifications on your mobile device—which is kind of a bummer, so keep that in mind. Users can also get labels and filters to further organize your to-dos.
There was a lot of love for Todoist in the call for contenders thread, although many of you noted that even though the app is free, $30 for an essential feature like notifications is a bit of a bummer that makes users steer clear (although they’re known to have sales). Still, Todoist’s feature set is impressive, and seriously on-par (or beyond) many of the others in the roundup. The fact that it’s available for almost any platform and looks good on all of them helps a lot, and many users specifically praised Todoist’s “karma” points system for helping you stay motivated to get your to-dos finished. The service even very recently updated to add new visual scheduling options and email add-ins.
