Ratings and Reviews
I love this app and am so glad it is regularly updated. It's a gem. It took me a little while to learn to make the greatest use of it and once I did, it's been with me ever since.
I like it because it's flexible. I can add and edit entries one at a time or all at once. Looking at the whole document is often very helpful.
I like it, in part, because it's an editor of plain-text documents. I can open the document on iPhone and my Linux distribution. SwiftoDo is beautiful, functional, and plain-texty.
For an app whose sole job is to track your todos, SwiftoDo actually loses information.
The app repeatedly forgets my settings. For the past month I’ve had it, it always resets the New Task Entry Mode setting to “Single,” despite my setting it to “Multiple.” Until now, this had just been an annoyance that, although frustrating, didn’t affect my todo list.
Today, however, I noticed it stopped syncing with my Dropbox. New tasks I entered since the last time it synced weren’t being saved to the cloud. After trying to refresh a few times, I checked the settings and discovered that the app had forgotten my sync settings completely!
I proceeded to re-enter my syncing information. I then checked my todo list, and to my horror I found that my iPhone’s copy of the list had been completely replaced with the out-of-date version from Dropbox. All the tasks I entered since the last sync (however long ago that was, I don’t know, since I don’t know when the app decided to forget my settings) were gone. Simply gone.
For a paid app, this is unacceptable. Please get your act together.

I have rewritten numerous parts of the app since you posted this review. The bugs you cite are all fixed now. If the app is still failing you, I would like the opportunity to fix it. Please email email@example.com with more specifics on what is happening to you.
I've tried so many apps for structuring my todos, and this is far and away the best for how I work. Easy to use, low-friction, and powerful. There are a couple of UI enhancements that would make it even better (a calendar picker for due dates, and titles like "today" and "tomorrow" on the section headings when sorting by due date), but overall this is fantastic.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
