Average task management or todo app for individuals

2018-07-30

Pros

- The free version have most of the features that are really good to use as a starting task management app - Smart sentence recognition with the automatic time picking from the natural language is one of the best features.

Cons

- 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

Great task management tool with a host of features.

2018-09-24

Simple task management and increased productivity along with loads of features and integrations.

Pros

Task management is something that an effective tool can simplify and RTM is the tool that I have used for some time to handle this.

Cons

If you are not an advanced user, searching and sorting through tasks can be a bit cumbersome as your lists grow.

Catchy, refreshing name and easy to get up to speed

2018-09-29

Pros

You can make the navigation column menu disappear to increase the task creation workspace. There’s a desktop and mobile app, and it offers integrations with a variety of apps.

Cons

However they need to make a living and I understand that they can’t offer all the golden apples under a freemium plan. The name of the app is quirky and appealing; it makes me think of the groceries shopping lists and crossing items out - I like that.

Easy recording of tasks with subtasks, tags and lists including magic auto created lists.

2018-03-25

Task management across devices with the ability to give tasks to others.

Pros

Well priced and integrates with the things I need it to in a small organisation.

Cons

No team management, you have to buy "gift" subscriptions for your colleagues.

Great todo app for people with a programming mind

2015-12-22

To get unlimited and automatic syncing with the mobile app and app notifications however, you'll need to cough up $25/year for a Pro account; the free version only allows a manual sync once every 24 hours.

Pros

- Smart add syntax to add all task properties at once via keyboard - fully keyboard compatible (web app) - iOS and Android apps - capable of highly complex search queries that can be saved for future use

Cons

- seemingly basic features such as mobile syncing are only available after purchase ($25/year) - current web app UI is dated - no subtask support in current web app

Not worth the money, free options do much more and do it better

2018-07-10

It was unsuitable for the use it was to be put to and the project it was being used in conjunction with only proceeded after switching to an alternative software in the same niche.

Pros

A client asked me to make use of this software to collaborate on a project but of all the collaboration software I have used I have found this to be the least helpful and certainly way overpriced.

Cons

The only way you can fully collaborate with another user is to upgrade to pro and there is nothing this software offers that Asana does not that would ever make such an expenditure worth it.

2018-03-09

Pros

There are many different types of tasks which help organise the work better and make notifications work properly.

It was always difficult for me to find tasks that I marked as done.

Very good to begin

2018-03-17

Pros

I find it a very useful tool to keep my personal activities in order, the way the activities are visualized and that it is possible to classify them is a great advantage.

Cons

Although it has improved a lot, it is still far from being considered a work option. I still think it's a great option for personal organization.

Overall, best to do list for my business!

2018-01-11

This software make it pretty easy to implement GTD.

Pros

But, this by far has been the best task master I've used in years.

Cons

I wish I could customize a filter of my tasks (better than options provided by the smart lists) from the drop down "wheel".

Excellent task manager, very cool, very easy

2018-11-19

Pros

There are also apps for your mobile device and tablet, and the UI of each is excellent.

Cons

Their support team is small and lean, and their Gmail plugin is not compatible with the new version of Gmail because it's essentially a completely new product. Since Gmail's plugin is the best way for me to access RTM, I find this a significant limitation.

Heavy daily user for business and personal tasks

2018-08-02

I never forget anything, a very organized app that puts the right things I need in front of me so I can get more things done...

Pros

ease of use, especially when I learned the keyboard shortcuts (I like not having to switch to the mouse every 5 seconds) the UI is very clean, simple to use and no matter how many levels of nested tasks I go into I always know where I am (navigation-wise).

Cons

Some workflows on mobile are too long, the worst is postponing a task by anything other than 1 day - It requires quite a few clicks.

Great todo software that balances simplicity with great flexibility

2017-09-13

RTM has made me more organized, plus it's satisfying to set up a complex smart list that ends up working just like you want it to.

Pros

While it does take some effort to make it do so, it is easier than one might imagine. Mobile apps and syncing also work well, as should be expected of software in this category.

Cons

(For instance, completed tasks cannot be viewed in the same list as incomplete tasks.)

A versatile todo app that has loads of functionality and compatibility

2018-05-22

Pros

Having used several other todo apps, I find that RTM covers most of the most important things 1) Integration with Calendars - You are able to display tasks on calendars like Google, Apple and others.

Cons

I understand that there are a boatload of features but if there were better pricing plans, it would help a great deal rather than a one size fits all. 3) Again on the upgrade to pro, to get the most functionality out of RTM, you need a pro account.

Best Task Management Tool

2018-05-26

Pros

It is my go to tool for managing my to do lists.

Cons

I simply wish this tool would let you have location based alerts (based on the location set on a task) on iOS.

Good-looking and easy to use, but with some limitations for the power-user

2017-10-10

Initially I was using the software daily until I began to uncover some of its limitations with sorting,

Pros

RTM has a very attractive desktop application that is easy-on-the eye.

Cons

Tasks which are completed cannot be sorted.

Solid and Reliable

2018-11-28

For a long time, I used the free version but switching to the Pro (paid) version has been worth the price - the ability to sync with my android app is amazing.

Pros

I've tried all sorts of productivity apps and I keep coming back to Remember the Milk. It's simple and yet robust - has a lot of different features (tags, postpone, priorities, subtasks, colours, smart lists, locations, etc). Highly customizable.

Cons

I wish it would have a calendar integration with Google Calendar - that's the only thing that's really lacking.

I have tried out this program to help keep track of tasks within my business and personal life.

2018-04-29

Pros

I also like how it integrates with Google so easily.

Cons

I don't really like how outdated the website version is, but the free apps make up for that because they are more up to date.
