What is Todoist?
Todoist is a fantastic all-round to-do list application. Really perfect for most to all uses of task management.
This is one of the task management apps you can recommend to your family and a professional at work and they both will get how it works from day one. Todoist is a reliable, fluid way to capture and manage tasks — with some integrations for connecting to your Google Calendar.
Todoist delivers a good team experience too — for “team inbox” and capturing those tasks via email too. Todoist is best known for capturing tasks with due dates, labels and natural language input — something people love from Fantastical 3.
Offering up boards and list views for your projects, people like the easy nature of Todoist.
