Todoist, what it does and doesn't 2 Helpful

about Todoist Sep 2015

As a guy with absolute shit memory, I've been using Todoist free version in browser and on my smartphone for about 3 years because of how easy it is to use and I'll keep using it in the future, but apart from everything working for a todo list way, it has a few things I would love to be implemented but aren't:

  • more and better keyboard shortcuts
  • more features and tracking capabilities
  • easier handling with keyboard only
  • more functions that even the simplest text editors have nowadays

The paid version doesn't really solve the above issues, right now it just adds labels/tags and notifications if you pay fully, which are nice to have but not essential.

Altough, what it does it does really well for a TODO list in its design:

  • it shows the timeline of the next days visible to you
  • this makes it easy to drag and drop things to reschedule
  • has support for recurring tasks
  • has support for priorities
  • has support for dates
  • has support for natural language scheduling of tasks (like "take out trash on sunday", and he knows to put "take out trash" on Sunday)
  • it's the fastest app I tried to add and manage your tasks (it takes 2 seconds to add a task with a date with the speed I type)

Because of these, I have a custom querry of the next 7 days of my todoist as my Chrome homepage. Very useful to keep me in check.

Note: The latest UI design change was a fun addition.

It's a good todo app, but I want the devs to do more for it to make it godly.
