Pros

It is easy to use and has great mobility connectivity. The support team is also always there to help you with anything you need, anytime.
Great todo software that balances simplicity with great flexibility.
Not worth the money, free options do much more and do it better.

Pros

I was using it and then migrating to the competition and then back again to Todoist. I will not claim that it is the best tool but it suits me perfectly and I feel encouraged to work on my tasks.
I love the ability to drag an email to the software and it automatically generates a task. The ability to schedule task really helps keep our team on track.
The thing I liked the most is that Todoist is really easy to use. M not a big fan of task management software... but Todoist offers a perfect balance between ease of use and functionality.

Cons

It is hard to find the different functions on each list unless you become more familiar with it.
NOTE: I am a beta tester for Remember the Milk via their Pro program. That means I pay for their service and in return I get to opt-in to the beta version.
The mobile app is very slow and lags most of the times and it doesn't feel like a real native application. The UI is really bad and seems very old kind of design.

Cons

I was shocked when I realize you can't retrieved your "done" tasks. You tick it, and it's gone, that's quite annoying and undesirable.
This is more of an iphone problem the location reminders are useless since you have to have the app open on an iphone for it work which defeats the purpose of a location reminder.
It can be a pain when you accidentally mark a task as done to get into the completed tasks and get it back to uncompleted.

Remember The Milk

The one-stop tool to drive my life

Reviewed 4 months ago

I started with RTM as a tool to record my To-Dos and now it has turned as my guide for the day. Apart from issues in switching timezones while traveling and still maintaining the position of recurring tasks, there's almost nothing I can complain about the tool.

Pros

- Available on all platforms I can think of, including BlackBerry 10! - Recording tasks is as easy on a mobile device as on a desktop/web-page - Completing tasks feel more natural than any other tool I've used - The number of tools available to organize tasks is enormous: lists (and smart-lists), tags, contacts, locations, etc. - Filters is one of my most favorite things in RTM

Cons

- There's no concept to view multiple lists in a single view as Todoist does - I wish there could be different containers for personal, work, more

Todoist

Gave it a try but ended up using another program

Reviewed 2 years ago

A solid to-do list app but didn't like the look of it.

Pros

I had read a lot of great reviews about Todoist and thought I would give it a try. It is easy to set up tasks and the free version has quite a few features - Projects, labels, sub-tasks, priorities, etc. A fairly robust to-do list app, not doubt about it.

Cons

It has a really minimalist look which irritated me. The colours were weak and it was all just a bit too spread-out (too much space on the screen) for my liking. I like things to be robust and this just felt too thin. I also could never seem to learn ways to hack the app - smart keys and the like. I tried it for a bit and then ended up using Remember the Milk.
