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.
- My wife and I use Paprika for recipe management. Within Paprika we can plan our meals on a calendar and then export those ingredients list into the grocery list function of the app. We are both logged into the apps on our phones and use it at the store while shopping.
I used to like Paprika so much. But they haven't updated their Android app in years and it's so dated now, the images in the recipes are too tiny to see anything and there is no way to export to anything other that Paprika's proprietary extension.
- My wife and I share a shopping list on Todoist. It's easy to add a task, it has a useful home screen widget on Android, list sharing works well with notifications when someone else completes a task. Probably most importantly, it doesn't try to do a whole lot more, like force you into inputting recipes, so there's not a lot of time that you have to invest before it's useful.
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.
- My wife and I have been using this for years. Haven't needed to look elsewhere.AnyList has one big feature that I love - favorite lists. Put your weekly staples in a single list and never forget to get them again. It can also be configured to share lists across stores, so you can make a single list and have it visible across multiple stores.
- Great little shopping list app. I can set the prices of food, add coupons, rearrange the categories to match the aisle order in my regular store. It tells me the total price of my list and automatically adds new items into the correct category. Can sync on web browser too so I can plan my shop on my laptop and use my phone when out shopping. Whilst I don't share the list, the ability is there too
