If you have some task to do, use Todoist!

You can get from zero to full task management in no time. It's UX is so good, that you are pleased to use it on a daily basis.

Pros

Pretty and powerful on certain level of task-management. One of the best "to do" app I came across ever.

Cons

Lack of advanced markup in task's descriptions.

Alternatives Considered

Freedcamp and Trello

List are out

It's a good application, but I guess it's aimed at people without complex projects.

Pros

I used Todoist before switching to Asana. Having a list is not the same as managing a project.

Cons

I need some app to help to manage and track projects.

Trailblazer

I really liked it. Todoist works exceptionally well, smooth like butter and does not get in the way of organizing your life. The minimalist design language was one of the first of its kind back when they first started out as an online-only service. In the meantime they have introduced native apps for all major platforms. Expect this to just work, and work well. Tags are an especially useful future as are priorities. This helps you see with a glance (or using a filtering function) what is relevant or important. Todoist is great if you want to adhere to the GTD philosophy or if you want to create your own customized system to manage your tasks. I have not used the collaborative function but would expect it to work well too.

Pros

Todoist has keyboard shortcuts down. That makes it easy and fast to navigate once you are familiar with it. Quick entry is easy and fast. The app gives you lots of ways to slice and dice your todo list, such as favorites, different priority levels and lables. Different views, such as a Kanban type of board can help organize and manage your task list. One thing that makes Todoist especially easy to use is that you can add tasks by email, you can add attachements (the word doc you need to read is right there).

Cons

I am not a fan of subscription services. The free version is great to test the service but too limited to use as daily driver. If you are ok with paying a monthly fee, then the 4$/month (3$ if you pay for the whole year upfront) is a reasonable ask. This and the sheer number of functions steered me towards an alternative as I was looking for something simpler. In my experience, more features just meant more distractions from actually checking off items on my task list.

Alternatives Considered

OmniFocus and Things

Reasons for Switching to Todoist

In the end I chose an alternative to Todoist, as I am no fan of subscription services and rather pay once for a product, knowing I can use it as long as it still works with the OS I am using. But had it not been for that Todoist would have beat out Things by Cultured Code. The reason being that there are some more functionalities and the ease of use with keyboard on a computer is the best I know of.

It was a great app but I time consuming.

Pros

It is a really handy tool to stay on track of all the things you have to do during the day for various things. I used it to simultaneously manage my personal and freelance life. So instead of writing lists this was "better" to quickly typing it in where ever I was.

Cons

Just felt time consuming to set up tasks or manage the tasks at that time I was using it. It was also a little expensive for me as I am in Namibia and the exchange rate was / and is really ridiculous so to keep paying for it was out of my budget.
