One of the most popular to-do list apps, wunderlist, was acquired by microsoft in 2015 and taken out of commission five years later. Microsoft’s stated ambition was to build a replacement app for wunderlist from the ground up, cloning all its best features in the process. The new app, microsoft to do, frankly took too long to come to market and arrived half baked anyway. Sublist is an unique approach that makes quire stand out among thousands of todoist alternatives. For one to-do list, you can create as many sub-lists as you wish to focus on which matters the most to you.
The only drawback of this app is that it is currently only available on the android platform. Ike is a to-do list app which brings a fresh and different approach to task management. Unlike wunderlist or any other task manager app on this list, ike’s main feature is to make its users focused by using the “priority matrix”. Most of us focus on getting things done which are most urgent but might not be important.
At the same time, it looks and functions as simply as todoist. If you need an app that plays well with the mac ecosystem and doesn’t require a subscription, then taskpaper is a great option. It keeps the “page-oriented” design of both workflowy and dynalist, but it adds some additional features such as natural language processing. Dynalist is in many ways similar to workflowy, except that it includes many of the standard to-do app features that workflowy lacks. If you like the workflowy interface but need a bit more organization, then dynalist is a great choice.
Tasks, reminders, calendars, to do lists, for you and your teams – all in one place. Email addresses are created uniquely for each list in your team. Add numbers, dropdowns, budgets – literally add anything to your tasks. Add time estimates to tasks and even split efforts between assignees.
Unlike dynalist and taskpaper, workflowy doesn’t have a file browser to organize your lists into projects or folders. Seeing all the finished tasks get whisked away with a click sends a surge of fulfillment. I’m surprised no other app has this feature because it keeps things really clean. Tasks strength relies on its integration with google’s suite of apps. For example, using tasks on mobile or the web is great for quick capture, especially if you get a lot of tasks via gmail. The free plan limits you to 9 lists, 99 tasks per list, and 19 subtasks per task.
