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.

    Plan

    A beautiful organizer that integrates into your calendar

    Fully integrated with Google Calendar, allows dragging tasks from to-do lists directly onto your calendar, time estimates, due dates, time tracking, subtasks, comments, etc. They seem to be adding new features every month and are super responsive to user feedback

      I searched for that so long. Try it out, it's easy and free. I tried so many other apps and they didnt have these functions or didnt do it good. This is a better google calendar generally.

    • This is exactly how a tasks/calendar should work. I have been searching for almost a year to find the right task software. Plan nailed it, I hope they continue to grow and take over the market.

      Nice tool. Was amazed how easy it is to migrate from existing Trello/Jira board.

      Imported everything correctly, so the transition can be really smooth and painful.

      This tool will definitely work well for PM and non-PM team members. Easy to follow and very cool!

      Would be great if I could still sign up for a free plan up to 10 members .. please 🙏🙏

      We were looking for a tool to replace Asana, and after initially testing Todoist, became certain it could be the tool for us. But sharing projects is a PITA. There's no easy way to let your team have access to all newly created projects. Also, the projects structure isn't shared, so sharing a new subproject causes havoc in the teammate's projects structure, and the teammate needs to manually configure the projects structure according to it's intended layout.

    • The Todoist app is ruthlessly efficient in helping me capture my tasks no matter when or where I am. Bring collaborators into a project, or a task is a snap. When I'm creating a recurring task, and hopefully a positive habit, or when I am reflecting on my productivity, Todoist works.

      I've tried this app many times, but really fail to see what people see in it. It fails my basic use cases of even a grocery list, where I need to complete an item, have it hidden, then uncomplete it when it's needed again, easily.

      But then again, Todoist also fails this. Perhaps these are great for one-time use and throw away items. I use AnyList, and would otherwise use Paperless on iOS (or now Ikiru) before either of those.

      If you're a minimalistic approach lover then you should definitely check Wunderlist. It's doesn't eat much resources if you keep it open all the time. Lists of tasks, starring tasks is the best simple and productive way of tasks' prioritization. It also has a great feature of adding a task or searching for a task without going to the main window. Just use a keyboard shortcut for this.

    A little bit complicated for using it as a todo even if it matches almost all my needs

      Brilliant for managing all your project backlogs in a Kanban fashion. Including a list for the DIY tasks around the house.

      As a Marketer I use this daily to manage workflow, sort ideas around future content and prioritize my activities. My team collaborate and report using handy integrations with Google and we use it as a Customer service and Sales script repository to store links to docs and how-to videos.

      If you aren't an organized person Trello allows for easy to see visuals that help keep projects on track. The team at Curexe has specifically used it to organize our bugs, new features, staging and production stages of our development.

    Very cools features are included in the app like for example the integration with Google Agenda and a so beautiful design. But the app remains to light for me

    • For example I use Inbox for personal mail and Gmail for Work as I do not wish to carry around 2 separate devices.

      I was hoping to use Tasks specifically for work related todo's however removing my personal email from the selected available accounts removes it from every other google app on my device.

      Solution - Removing my personal email from Inbox/Chrome and only having work related emails on any google product

    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
