- There is not a better app that is all platform friendly. Easy to use, simple UI, loaded with features.I totally agree with John, especially if you need a Google Calendar integration.
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.
- Offline first, native first, seamless sync, efficient UX. I've been using it for many, many years. If I'm not mistaken Things is the first app to introduce the dynamic 'today' list, which many have copied. v3.0 adds native reminders support as well. Calendar is integrated with separation (as calendar events are _not_ TODO items). It's stitched natively to every platform and every detail and pixel has been handled with care.It's got a high price point, especially across multiple platforms, but it's so elegant and pleasant to use — I dropped Wunderlist in favor of Things (though I do miss commenting and attachments).I switched from Clear to Things this year. It's an extremely well designed app that oozes beauty, but also treads a very careful line between simplicity and advanced functionality. So far, it does everything I need, and just enough more that I will not hit any restraints for the foreseeable future. The calendar integration is hugely helpful for being the one place I check to map out my day every morning.
I've been a Things user since 2007. Within the last couple of years Things 2.0 started to feel stale, and I found myself exploring other alternatives. Yet I could never end up replacing it.
Thankfully, Things 3.0 comes out of nowhere with a completely redesigned experience that is fast, beautiful and it allows you to do everything with speed — the perfect recipe for a todo app.
This app feels like it belongs on iOS 11 even though it was launched weeks before the iOS 11 beta was announced. It's that good!
You still can't share tasks with others, but the great experience easily out weights that need.
I've used Things since 2010. It's the app I couldn't live without. To use it well, familiarize yourself with David Allen's "Getting Things Done" methodology.
- Wunderlist was my go-to to-do app for a long time. But it really depends on what you're going to use it for. If it's for a small company, this is a great app. Just for yourself: I would recommend the standard Reminders application by Apple (if you're on iOS/macOS etc by all means).
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.
- 100% Wunderlist replacement for me. Same UI, just different colors.Tried almost all the rest and ended up settling on this, and after 6 months, still glad I did!Great app. It's like a better version of Wunderlist. If you Like the side panel and simplicity of Wunderlist, you'll love this. It's that but better. I've tried many. Including Todoist. Which is great, but the design lacks elegant subtasks and a side panel. Hate the comment modal.
- Don't need any other app. MacOS and iOS have a beautiful notes app. You can also create to-do lists.Yep. I've always thought having a dedicated app for to-do lists is overkill when Notes is already so powerful. Just select the checklist icon. You can format things however you like with headings, bold text, etc.; and it even has collaborative features in case you want to share to-dos. I've tried apps like Todolist, Wunderlist, Any.do, and-the-like. I don't miss any of the additional features they offered.
I searched high and low for a replacement to the Mac OS default Notes app, which is incredibly limited in functionality and insufficient for my needs. I had one twist - I needed to find a note taking app for Mac that did not sync or store notes in the cloud. Bear does just that and it happens to be great. I really enjoy the hashtag categorization system and ability to have multiple tags on a note. It's a twist on Evernote style tags, but with a lighter-weight style of notebook organization and management.
Overall I love Bear. It is beautifully designed. I love the simple interface and the ability to tag notes is amazing. It makes searching for old notes so much easier. This is better than Apple Notes and I love it so much more than Evernote.
- I use Asana for my team. I love it. Also forwarding emails to create tasks is great.
- Very simple and well designed task management app.
This will eventually replace Wunderlist, however a year in, the improvements are just not there for me to have hope. It's AI baked daily recommendations could be nice, but again it needs to allow for more types of task listing.
I have been using this app for about a year now and it has been quite effective in helping me manage my time. Although some other apps have a better user interface but this product is more comfortable to use, once you get use to it
- Quire based on a few key features: 1. Three-state task model 'to do' (open), 'in progress', and 'completed', with a long list of other metadata, like due dates, task assignment, comments, file attachments, etc. 2. Markdown support in task descriptions and comments 3. Organizations/Projects/Tasks -- invite different groups of people to organizations, share projects in organizations either publicly or by invitation, tasks are defined in projects 4. task lists -- tasks can be dragged, dropped, subtasked 5. Google calendar integration -- only one-way from quire to calendar I hear they are working on Slack integration
- I've been using The Hit List for years since I got in a MacHeist bundle. The best rule in To-Do List management is to have 1 list for your professional life and 1 list for your personal life. Then, each day you pull from each of those master lists to come up with what to do each day. The Hit List lets me do that with finesse, dragging and dropping items from one list to another, creating hierarchies, start dates and end dates. In has a timer functionality too, but I haven't used it1) Fast with keyboard shortcuts for everything, 2) Smart Lists that are better than Things, 3) Flawless syncing across devices, 4) Ample area for notes on a per task basis. 5) Uncluttered interface. Nobody I know uses it but me, but for me, it is perfect.
- Spencer P Shulem made this productLittle bias here, but everyone one our team is maniacal about making a great (minimal) experience. It does the basics great, but also offers the most "pro" features free. We also have some fun paid features: emoji's, themes, time estimating. We're constantly listening to our users, and on Android we just came out of beta with a beautiful new redesign. Our iPhone/iPad app is solid, clean, simple. We think you'll love it :)
Usually my thoght process goes from general idea to multiple sub-ideas until I get to doable tasks. No other app that I've tried allows you to do this the way Workflowy does. They all let you group by tag, or notebooks or whatever but they are usually one level grups.
Best outline and note-taking app for me.
Using WF for:
- projects list
- clients list
- "inbox", "tasks" and "later" lists in kinda GTDish style
- quick note taking during meetings and
Using WF everyday for two years, happy with it's simple efficiency. No automation at all, but you can invent any kind of workflow using tags and search. Lately company significantly improved their Android app, but it still need more.
- If you are looking for a to-do list for professional purposes, and kind of a guy who receives many emails etc, I highly recommend Gluru. It has a state of art AI, that scans through your emails, understand what you need to do, and suggests tasks with (currently limited set of) actions; so don't only keep a to-do list but also complete your tasks.
