Negative Comment by Maeldun
about Astrid and Doit.im May 2013

Was great while it lasted, but it will now soon be shut down because of the Yahoo takeover.

As with Google Reader, this forced me to switch but I got better software in the process (Feedly).

In case of Astrid, Doit.im is closest alternative, and so much better too. Came a long way since first trying it out a couple of years ago. Better webapp, mobile app, scheduling, planning, contexts, sync, everything just works the way it's supposed to (unlike Astrid).

Still missing the dynamic setting for recurring tasks but I got so much more in return.


Great to-do list app

Positive Comment by Thelle
about Astrid Dec 2011

I really love Astrid! It's a great app that has nice widgets, multiplatform sync and social media integration. It's awesome!!

Update January 2013: Still think it's one of the best to-do list apps out there, but I've made the shift to the much simpler and in my opinion more powerful Small WorkFlowy iconWorkFlowy.

about Astrid Jun 2011

I used to like Astrid despite the silly messages, but they rather stuffed up the most recent (3.0) upgrade in a way that lost data for some people, added ads, and worst of all gave the impression that peoples' tasks were being held hostage and the upgrade was being forced! That last part wasn't really the case, but for me the added ads and mishandling have lost them a <3 here and a few *s in the marketplace. Oh well. I'll be investigating Google Tasks tools as an alternative for now (also because I've never liked RTM's web interface: Tasque makes that part palatable for us Linux users though!)

Comment by Nishidake
about Astrid Jun 2011

I am one of those people who doesn't like Remember The Milk. I know it's a great tool for a lot of people, but for me, I end up spending too much time fussing with the system, instead of doing to things I'm using the system to keep track of. I need a tool that's as complex as it needs to be and as simple as I can get away with. Astrid fits this bill.
Astrid is not really like RTM, although it backs up to/syncs with an RTM account if you want. If you use RTM, you'll find some familiar features (tagging, importance, etc.) but it's a much simpler, nimbler system, which for me, makes it much more likely to capture todos as they come up.
Astrid also gently nags and reminds you of your todos until you feel silly for putting them off and just do them. Read that last sentence one more time and consider how completely amazing that one small detail about Astrid is.
I use this everyday on my Android phone. It keeps all my personal, work, and college todos with ease and actually helps me check them off instead of just storing them for me to ignore later.
I could not be more in love with Astrid.
