The better free todo app

Hello everyone ! I'm currently looking for the best free to-do app in the world! To achieve this impossible quest, I want to found an app that corresponds to this standards : - must be FREE (at least for the next features) - can be interconnected with Google Calendar (as Wunderlist or Google Tasks does it) - the tasks can be : -- time estimated and due to a date and a time (like Remember the Milk) -- repeated -- subdivided into subtasks (like Trello allows it with "convert to card" todo feature, but I prefer Todoist way for this) -- categorized to a custom classification (like "work", "school", ... like Remember the Milk does) -- handle a description text -- assigned to a task list/project -- handle comments (Trello, Wunderlist) - the task lists/projects can be subdivided and be encapsulated as many times as we want (I really love the Todoist method) - task lists/projects, categories and tags can be shared and allow team working (like Wunderlist and Remember the milk) -- we can assign lists/projects member to a task (Trello, Remember the Milk, Wunderlist) Secondary features that can be very cool : - API - Interconnection with Slack and Trello Services I already tried : - Trello (a little bit complicated for using it as a todo even if it matches almost all my needs) - Google Tasks (too simple, cannot be shared, no subproject, too simple subtasks) - Todoist (perfect but paying) - Wunderlist (Almost perfect, it just lacks some tags system and infinite subdividing lists and projects) - Remember the Milk (pretty perfect except the subdividing feature that I love so much is only on paying plans) As you can see, I love todos. If you find me the perfect app, you're going make me more than my day! So that the game begins as we say.

    Highly recommend Taskade for collaborative todos and task lists. You can chat and video on todo lists with your family and teammates, and write notes and visualize them in kanban boards and mind maps.

    Hey Arthur, I can recommend Zenkit as a great free todo app. It can be integrated with Google Calendar and accommodates to the other features you are seeking. We've also recently released the newest version, so you can enjoy a sleek design with other ways to share your data. I work closely with the dev team, so I can pass on any feedback you may have. :)

    Todoist has most of the features you mentioned for free, but even the monthly plan is very reasonably priced.

    Try Ora, most of the things you want for free are in the basic Ora plan, all except Task Repeat (Yeah, I'm not exaggerating, they actually are there and they are free for up to 3 members)
    I absolutely love Ora. It's beautiful, easy to use and very flexible. I use it for a wide range of personal side projects as well as my todo list and household management tasks.

    Remember the Milk is almost perfect, except the subdividing feature that I love so much is only on paying plans and I'm not a big fan of the app name and the interface looking (I'm too rigid I know) but this point is only personal and their work remains simply amazing

    Not the main purpose that Asana was built for, but since we use it within our team for task management I'm already in the app. I make my own dashboard and create my own todo list within that so I can see how I can fit my to do list between my work load (works great if your to do list is related to your workload!)
