Free version isn’t great
I switched to Todoist from Wunderlist because I needed a secondary to do list app. At first, Todoist seemed like a great match for my needs. Then came two major issues.
First, even though all of the notes associated with my existing tasks were easily imported from Wunderlist, I couldn’t create any notes for new tasks without subscribing to the premium version of Todoist. By the time I realized that, though, I’d already invested a lot of time in cleaning up my old Wunderlist account and setting up the new Todoist account.
Second, the Todoist app shows countless options that aren’t available without a premium subscription. Those options aren’t marked, hidden, or greyed out for free users. That means you’re constantly trying to do things and getting the pop-up: “XYZ are premium features.” That’s both annoying and terrible UX design. It’s also deceptive to hook users with features that are actually blocked and to include countless icons/menu items throughout the app as though they were functional even though they’re blocked. I’ll pay a hefty one-time fee for really useful apps, but there’s no way I’m getting sucked into a subscription for this.
Overall, the app looks pretty and it’s fine for one-line to do list items (if you aren’t annoyed by the constant prompts to pay for the premium version). If you’re looking for a free app that allows detailed task entries, though, I’d definitely look elsewhere.
Free version is VERY basic - not what the screenshots show in the app store
Tried out this to do app after seeing the demo photos in the app store. The demo images are for the PAID version. The free version is very basic and no better than Wunderlist or other similar apps. With the free version I was not able to create new folders or tags. You are stuck with the most basic and generic defaults. Even something as simple as creating ‘Home’ and ‘Work’ folders could not be done. I tried to cancel my account through the app, only to be sent to an endless loop of filling out an online form, clicking submit, and then going back to square one as if nothing happened. Also note that I started the account by signing in through google/facebook option, which then requires you to change your password (not a bad idea, but why even offer those options if the password has to be changed?). After this attempt, same issue of endless loop of changing password, app not accepting change, and repeat over and over again. I finally have contacted customer support to cancel the account. Hopefully this will work.
UPDATE: One day after requesting cancellation by email, my account was cancelled.
So close but too far !!!
I have been in search of a program to replace Wunderlist- This program has what I liked about Wunderlist in terms of sharing and multiple platforms. I had a great start to the program and will get to what I think the fail is in hope they will correct it quickly. They must have also gotten this complaint before because they have a useless work around they reference.
When you create a project a task or however you decide to use the program, when you complete a task it disappears. You can bring it back, but it is cumbersome, Wunderlist would just collapse them, and you could see them at any time by un collapse them. It was suggested by todoist i look at an option for being able to see my tasks by placing an : in front of them but the instructions clearly say this makes them not completable. Why would you make a to do list not completable ? For those of you that do to see a problem with making completed items disappear, if you are collaborating on a project which this program has projects, people need to see what has been completed and read the notes if you have entered them.
