Not Terrible but There’s Issues
So I’m trying to wean myself off Wunderlist to the To Do app and while it’s not terrible there are issues. For one I’m not crazy about the Planned section at all. If anything it feels cluttered and unorganized. The earlier tab brings up tasks I’ve not set dates for and ironically haven’t used recently but the only way I can remove them is by marking them as complete and 100% eliminating them. So unless I want to continuously create a new shopping task rather than edit the preexisting one in my earlier tab I guess they’ll have to hang around uselessly in Planned. The other issue I have with Planned is how jumbled up the rest of the week looks when you’re trying to see what tasks are coming up. In Wunderlist your week was sectioned into days and your tasks were allotted to those days. Now the tasks are all piled together under one tab that accounts for most of the week and it just seems like unnecessary clutter.
The other issues I came across was that “My Day” doesn’t auto populate which seems rather redundant and I preferred when the important tasks moved to the top of the lists. It would also be really awesome to move the tasks assigned to each day in an order of importance if that became available.
I know To Do is still an app in progress but I do rely upon my planners a lot and hope it eventually becomes as successful as the beloved Wunderlist.
Best To-Do List App I have Found
I would have to say that overall Microsoft To-Do is a fantastic app and definitely the best to-do list app I have used. They make it very easy for someone with an ever growing and changing list of things that need to be done to organize everything in their life.
For example: I have my main tasks listed in the default list but I also have a list for each of the jobs I work, and a group with lists for all of my college classes and their assignments. And the best part is you can view everything that needs to be done today, tomorrow, next week, and later from all of those lists all on one page in the “Planned” tab. This app also works really well across multiple platforms by instantly syncing changes. I use it on my iPhone, iPad, and Windows PC.
A main feature I would really love to see added for the versions on iOS and iPadOS is the ability to add Microsoft To-Do to your widgets this way you can see and check things off your list all right from your home screen.
My biggest complaint is that whenever you add a task from the “Planned” tab it defaults to being due yesterday??? But overall it’s a to-do list app and I think you would have a really difficult time finding a better one out there.
Needs a lot of work
I am a physician and a scientist who requires a good to-do app to keep everything straight on a daily basis. Wunderlist was really the perfect tool for this, allowing me to organize and share tasks with lab members and clinical colleagues. When I learned it would eventually replace wunderlist, I decided to give To-Do a solid try. I imported all my lists from wunderlist, familiarized myself with all of To-Do’s features, and used it in place of Wunderlist for a good week. Unfortunately, a year after it’s unveiling, To-Do still needs a lot of work. The lack of a way to group related lists and the inability to automatically place tasks that are due today into the “my day” folder are critical deficiencies. Sure you can click the lightbulb in the “my day” folder and select all the upcoming tasks with the help of “suggestions,” but many (like me) cant remember to do that on a daily basis. The point of a to-do app is to make remembering all of your daily tasks unnecessary. I had so many issues with missing things (I literally have a hundred tasks some days) that I had to switch back to Wunderlist within a week. I know that the Microsoft team is working hard on To-Do behind the scenes. I plan to keep checking in and switch to to-do once it truly integrates all the features of wunderlist.
