Many of you know I’ve been searching for the perfect to-do list app or program for quite a while now. I’ve tried quite a few of them, but nothing has rocked my boat. I need an up close in my face solution that’s in front of me all the time. You know the old saying “out of sight, out of mind?” Well that’s how it’s been with all of the previous so called “solutions” I’ve found.
I’ve tried Google’s task list, Wunderlist, Toodledo, handwritten lists, day planners, digital post-it-notes on my laptop screen; and even created one that worked pretty well in Evernote (one of my favorite all-around solutions to just about everything) that has the little boxes I can check off when they are done. The one in Evernote was my favorite out of all of those, but I’d still forget about the list and end up forgetting to do something.
Enter Todoist. (Be still my heart!)
I’ve been using Todoist this past week. And so far, am loving it! What’s really, really nice about Todoist, is that I can access my to-do list through my browser or through an app on my phone. And … this is my favorite part, it integrates with Gmail. My Gmail is always open, so my to-do list is always front and center. And … it also integrates with Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote and a few other apps.
I’ve been testing it out this week because I’ve been juggling a bazillion different balls I can’t afford to drop, and I have to say it’s brilliant! Definitely NOT out of sight, out of mind.
With Todoist, I can quickly add a task, assign it to a project (similar to folders), give it a due date, save emails as to-do tasks for later, prioritize tasks, you name it. I can also quickly move the task to the next day, next week, next month or give it a completely new due date. Check out these 10 hidden Todoist features!Be still my heart!

The free version has just about every feature you could want, but I went ahead and bumped up to the paid version so I could have reminders and a few other things. At $28 a year, I couldn’t resist.
I’m going to continue testing this little beauty, but am really hopeful I’ve found my soulmate of to-do list apps.
My only issue so far is, as soon as I knock off one to-do, that blasted to-do gremlin adds 3 more to the list! Imagine that.
Do you have a favorite to-list or are you still searching?
