What ToDo list are you using (more general, not only work)?

2 months ago from

I was using Wunderlist over the past years. Since Wunderlist is no more (well probably soon) I'm on the scout for a new ToDo List which is available for desktop and mobile. I had a look at Microsofts ToDo but I'm not sure if it is the best choice for me. For work we use Trello, so like I said it is more for general tasks, Reminders and so on. I was wondering which tool you guys are using?

      Todoist is so good. I have the pro account. I can forward emails to it to make into a to do. I also love the quick add keyboard shortcut.

    Reminders(OSX & iOS) for personal things. Trello for personal projects.

    I've started using Google Keep. It's been quite nice recently - you can create lists or notes, pin your notes, etc. I've found it to be useful and basic for what I use it for.

    Paper, Evernote, and Trello (hooked up to Pocket and other things with IFTTT or Zapier, can't remember)

    Currently using Things 3. Been a Things user for years. Absolutely love the attention to detail and how you can tailor the process to your own needs. The new ios apps are also crazy good.

    I don't mix private and work tasks. I use Things at work but don't sync it using Things Cloud. I see no reason to mix them since I don't bring the work computer home either.

    I've been using Things for years, and the new version is really great.

    As a GTD user, I don't differentiate between personal and professional tasks, so I use Things for everything. What's the difference between personal projects (repairing your car) and professional ones (designing something)? Projects are always a set of tasks, so I don't understand the idea of separating them in different tools.

      I've only recently subscribed to this logic, and have always in the past maintained separate personal and work to-do lists.

      My problem was that I was allowing clients to access my to-do lists and that was my main source of frustration (the feeling that I'm not in control of it).

      Now I don't let clients even see my to-do lists, and keep everything in Trello. Problem solved.

      Keeping them separate prevents work creeping into your mind when you're not at work.

    I've currently been using a BUJO (Bullet Journal) Bullet Journal Site .

    I transferred over from Todoist - as a few mentioned above ; I loved it but I like to start my day away from most digital things and I've found that this seems to be the most satisfying creating method for myself.

    Any.do has all the features I need. Very streamlined and minimalist.

    Wunderlist - I've added my work account as a separate user and shared lists so I can add any notes or thoughts I have to either my personal account or my work account.

    I've tried so many thru the years, from Clear to Todoist, etc. The only thing that's stuck is post-it notes and a pen.

      Same. I just have a list of things at the corner left of my desk and cross things off as I get them done. I also make notes and such on new things added. Once the page gets full I take 5 minutes and rip the top page off, then create a new one on the on the page underneath.

      Yessss I've been using this since...2008? I've tried some of its competitors like Things and it just never clicked like THL.

      I really wish they would release an updated version, but at least they're continuing to keep it updated for newer operating systems. I've been tempted to make an HTML5 version for myself, but I know I'll never be able to sell it.

        I'd buy! :D

        I'm giving Things 3 another go - natural language time input for reminders + integration with Calendar are exactly the features I'd love to see in THL.

    I currently use a combination of Todoist and Evernote, depending on how tied to other content my tasks are. If it's project related, I use Evernote so I can easily reference my project's notes, if it's personal errands or tasks I use Todoist because it's super simple and easy to use.

    I've also been working with a small team to build our own team project planning/management tool that allows tasks to be nested inside other tasks to allow for more flexibility in how people choose to organize their items, so I've been using that in a testing capacity.

    I use Apple Reminders for personal list synced across all devices. My company uses JIRA.

    I've been using Nirvana for a while now & think it's a really well designed product.

    I'm using winio.io and so far I've been very impressed with their simplistic design. I've been using Winio every day to manage the things I need to do across several different projects and it has helped my team to stick around one tool.

    Ive been using the Notes app by Apple since they now have checkboxes. Nothing advance but gets the job done for me.

    Things 3 by Cultured Code, always used Wunderlist but the clean and simple interface of Things got me over. I especially love re-arranging my tasks in the Today view, the fact that you can open multiple windows, integrations with email apps like Spark and Airmail. Overall, the clean interface really keeps you going.
