I have used so many to-do apps over the years but still not able to stick to one. To-do apps are either task tracking or habit tracker but I did not find any app which solves tracking both kinds of tasks together. Consider I want to exercise 4 times in a week(No fixed day but have to do 4 sessions) and also track daily todos.
- SPOILER: a to-do app is only a tool, what really matters is the method. If you are looking for a flexible tool that can shape around your own method, Todoist is your best bet. It's accessible on any device/OS/browser and it's arguably the most integrated to-do app across a number of other services and apps. You can set recurring tasks (Free) and add different reminders on each (Premium), including location based ones. Obviously you can setup daily non-recurring tasks as well. You could create a project called "Habits Builder" and add various recurring and one-off tasks. The Todoist API is very easy to use so you'd probably have no problem to expand the capabilities of the app. Said that, no to-do app will actually complete the tasks you input in it, nor will remember you to rigorously check the app on a hourly basis. My advice is to find your own system/method that works for you and then adapt the tool that better suit it. In my opinion, Todoist is flexible enough.
- Spencer P Shulem made this productLittle bias here, but that's literally the description of WeDo haha. We're adding some more habit features in our next update, but you can create as many task and habit lists as you want, and habit lists are a custom experience, so they reset every day/week/month regardless if you mark them off unlike recurring tasks in a task app. :)
- Christina Willner made this productI know exactly what you mean with task tracking AND habit tracking. Recurring tasks (which most to-do apps have) are not the same as habit tracking. Amazing Marvin currently has task tracking and we will be adding a proper habit tracking system soon. You work from a daily todo list in Marvin and for the habits you will be check off what you did/didn't do each day and see in different ways if you are on track, sticking to your intentions, improving etc.I've been using Amazing Marvin for a month, and I was in the same boat of having tried many, many apps, none of which stuck. Marvin just feels right. The day planning approach has made me feel much more in control, and it helps me get more done. You can pick and choose features (strategies) and build your own perfect app, basically. In the world of todo apps, AM is a far superior approach than anything else I've tried. I'll happily vouch for it.
- I’ve also tried so many to-do list apps. I like tick tick because it’s both a calendar and a to-do manager, with the ability to keep all of your goals and projects neatly organized. And it’s one of the only ones out there that allows you to schedule your tasks on your calendar with a start and end time - game changer if you need an accurate view of what you can fit in to your day. And yes, it has the recurring task function.
- Makes taking care of your todos and habits a little less painful. Level up, new abilities, raising pets. Doesn't let the gamification get in the way of managing your todos. Great third party API. Wonderful community. Collaborate with others on tasks to defeat bosses.
