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:
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:
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.

This application is must-have tool for people with a lot of things todo. This is not really simple task list, this is SMART task list because of different features inside Todoist, like: notifications, labels, projects, and inline features from workfly / moodo (unlimited sub-tasks, sub-projects, etc).
It has comments for each task / project. + It have very nice win app (win10 app works fine in offline without even internet connection). And it has a lot of integration tools.
Strongly recommend to use. Their free version is a little bit limited, but you can still use it without any discomfort. But i prefer to use paid version (price is really cheap if compare to competitions), but features really awesome.
As you see, I did use this tool for a long time.But I stopped to do it in 2016 or 2017, because I was tired to report them about their bugs, about dozens of issues, about really a lot of problems with their app.I switched to Quire.io which is absolutely free and much better in terms of everything than Todoist...
What problems did I face with the Todoist?
Oh, I can write hell a lot about Todoist.
Todoist one of the really good tools in the market for collaborating, even with bugs it's have killing features like rating and tasks for today. While for example quire after few years still does not have at all...

The free version is totally unusable!Why do they even have a free version? Even reminders are paid! A todo app without reminders! Shame on them!
While I agree this is a bit weird, I question people who aren't willing to pay $29 a year for something they are likely to end up using every day.

It promotes input of tasks an prioritization
works very well, cross-platform, and the Google calendar sync is WOW

What I don't like:
I feel Todoist free is more a gimmick than a tool. You can have pretty much all Todoist premium features in MS To Do for no cost. Unless you hate using MS services, what's the point?
Keep in mind that in MS To Do you can't:
The app itself looks decent and provides useful functionality however it's mind-boggling how badly supported keyboard-only workflow is. I mean you get a pretty good picture once you realize that the application does not natively support movement between tasks with keyboard (i.e. using arrow keys to do it etc.) Even some default keyboard shortcuts that are supposed to work just end up doing nothing . Bottom line is, if you are clicker, you will be pretty much be on your own terrain. However if you prefer a keyboard-only workflow, look somewhere else.
