Todoist is a lightning-fast task manager that makes entering new to-dos incredibly easy. With the Quick Add feature (tap the big plus button), you can set a due date for a task, attach a label, pick a priority level, and delegate it to a coworker—all in one fell swoop.
In many apps, assigning all that information can be laborious, but with Todoist you can add complex tasks using natural language: Set a due date by simply typing “today,” “tomorrow,” or “next Tuesday.” Todoist even understands recurring due dates, such as “every two weeks” or “every first of the month beginning January 1.”
Quickly assigning your task to a larger project (work, shopping list, movies to watch) is easy with hashtags. For example, typing “Citizen Kane #movies” will make your Projects list pop up so you can tap “Movies to Watch.” Assigning a priority level is equally fast.
Siri integration makes it easy to add new to-dos with just your voice, while the handy Today widget allows you to mark tasks complete without having to go into the app.
Don’t worry, none of these shortcuts are required. But once you get the hang of it, it’s amazing how quickly you can get action items out of your head and onto this powerful to-do list.
