App Reviews

  • Half-Baked

    By Grogboshi
    This app and its web counterpart need a lot more work. It would be great if they combined it with Outlook Tasks and Planner into a single task management system, akin to Todoist. The app needs natural language support, a desktop Mac client, tie-ins with Teams to create tasks and projects directly from Teams, and tasks dated for today need to be automatically added to My Day so everything due in a given day is all in one place, rather than looking from list to list. It would also be great if it had a general Inbox to add tasks to as they come to mind and then organize later, like GTD prescribes. List sharing would be another big boost, especially for businesses if it’s linked to Teams, so that projects could be organized through ToDo and tasks managed. Apps like TickTick or Todoist show how powerful task management systems can also be easy to use and good for both individuals and businesses. Hopefully this app will follow in their footsteps and replace the myriad Microsoft task and project management options that currently exist (Outlook Tasks, Planner, To-Do), like Microsoft is doing consolidating Lync, Skype, and Teams.
  • Steps are headed in the right direction but…

    By middlenameray
    With the addition of steps/subtasks, we’re definitely getting closer to this app replicating the full functionality Wunderlist (need folders and shared notes support to make it complete). But there’s a weird glitch in the app and the steps keep disappearing/reappearing. Sometimes they show, sometimes they don’t. The first time I reopened the app after creating some steps on one of my to-dos I thought they didn’t take, so I added them again, then they vanished again on another reload, so I added them again. Turns out, when I opened the To-Do web client, the original steps I added and ALL the duplicate entries saved to the cloud like they were supposed to but don’t always populate on screen on the phone. What a productivity nightmare. Add a new step? They all appear again. Rearrange the to-dos? Disappear. If this bug can be squashed I’ll give the app a fourth star. I’ll be screenshotting any to-dos with steps in the meantime so I can be sure I can reference them when I’m on the go.
  • Over designed

    By Unparadise
    I like the improvement I have seen in the past few months. I think Todo is heading the right direction. There are a few features such as assign to someone and attach photos to a note that are still missing. And it doesn’t do a good job integrating with other Microsoft services such as Outlook and Flow. But I hope these will be added along the way. One thing I strongly dislike about this app is it’s unnecessary big visual background that takes up 1/3 of the screen. Even though it goes away after scrolling its uneconomical use of limited real estate on the phone makes me hate it. A todo app should focus on what the user tries to accomplish and reduce every possible noise. I love the Things app for its simple design. It’s just so beautiful. You can feel that everything shown on the screen is intentional with a purpose. The original Wunderlist design was also really good for the same reason. Please offer the option to remove the annoying title background. I hate it! Thanks
  • Missing One Critical Feature!!

    By Kaspa7
    I love the simple yet pretty layout of this app, and I love that I can create different categories (work, school, personal) while having a “My Day” area that shows me ALL tasks that I need to complete that day. Beautiful! HOWEVER, any task you put a due date on does NOT automatically show up in My Day once that day arrives! So even if I put a task as “due tomorrow”, once tomorrow comes it will not show up in My Day. So basically every single morning I have to go through my various lists and add tasks manually to My Day. The whole point of having a due date for me is to “set it and forget it”. It’s too exhausting to add each task manually every day. Doesn’t it make sense that if a task is DUE TODAY that it should appear in the MY DAY folder? Drives me crazy!! I also wish it would have a badge app icon showing me how many tasks are on My Day for the day, so I can have a quick glance just from the home screen of how many tasks I still have to complete that day.
  • A simple reminders app is just what most of us need.

    By e10. with a lightning port.
    I started looking for a reminders app when I realized that the calendar’s “up next” widget contains reminders as well, so I deleted reminders and started looking elsewhere. Most of the reminders apps I’ve seen are either really simple, too complicated, or have complex tasks and just useless stuff locked behind a paywall. Microsoft’s ToDo is not the best app for the job, but it’s at least got the basics down, doesn’t lock it in a paywall, and doesn’t make it super complex. I would still like having location based reminders like on the Apple app, but I’ll forgive it. It still has: Reminders based on time, repeating reminders daily-weekly-monthly-yearly, notes, and color coded reminders groups. Yes, I wish it had location reminders, and that it didn’t force me to have it’s “Tasks” group, but it really is all you need. It’s basic, and that’s good.
  • A Pinch From the Finish Line

    By icuragoose
    (There is now iPad support!) I have loved Wunderlist, and Microsoft aims to replace it. The features in To Do are remarkably similar and familiar to Wunderlist users with simplicity and minimalism at its core. With a slimmed-down UI, there's less to distract you and with the flawlessly smooth and responsive controls, you feel like you have a firm grasp on your system. Everything is intuitive and inviting. In addition, I'm from Seattle, so I appreciate the themes. Right now the only things missing for my own workflow is the ability to have folders and sublists. This is my last reservation for using this app and once this is complete (both are planned), I can officially utilize this as a Wunderlist replacement. Once I use this in my workflow, I will be most excited about the "My Day" feature. I can use that in tandem with my office' implementation of Kanban to help me see what I committed to getting done today. I can see this being useful for O365 organizations as well, since it can replace the Outlook tasks, pull assigned tasks from Planner, have inputs with Teams (i.e. Right click a message and select "Create Task") I'm excited to see where this goes as I wait patiently for the product to bake. Until then, three stars is about where it's at as of now--little more than a college student's obligatory first app.
  • Good start but needs a lot of improvements

    By Dr.DLL
    Since this app was apparently built by Wunderlist developers, I shouldn’t be surprised that there’s sync issues, namely between iOS and desktop website. If I edited items on my phone then checked the list on a desktop browser, not only would it not update on the browser, when I go back to the mobile app, it changes things back to before I made the edits. This app seems to have a hard time telling which edits are the most recent and what to change/not change when syncing. Then there’s the minor but still annoying issues such as the whole list moving up and down too much when you try to re order an item (not sure if it’s a bug or a “feature” but please get rid of it) Some functionality suggestions: It’d be nice if items with due dates of “today” can be/are automatically added to My Day because that’s it seems convoluting to have something due today but not have it in “My Day” Also, it’d be very helpful if there’s a way to quick see items past due. Right now you have to check each and every one of lists to look for things you missed and it can get frustrating and time-consuming Changed to 3 stars because although right now it’s half-baked, I really want this app to work.
  • Problems with a Large List!

    By New Apple Fan
    I love where this is headed! I’ve been waiting to get to my Outlook/Exchange Tasks for quite awhile from iOS! The interface looks good and I love being able to change Due Dates on numerous tasks at once, etc. One big problem for those of us who have been using Outlook Tasks for 20+ years and have been using Views in Outlook to hide the fact that we’ve not done a good job of dosing or deleting old Tasks...Put some sort of config that will filter To-Do Tasks to the next month and the trailing month (next 30 days and trailing 30 days would be even better!). Reason being: Current To-Do App was working great until it started becoming unresponsive and then seems to flat out crash once it hits 1799 Tasks! So, it’s unusable for me unless I spend a bunch of time cleaning up my Tasks!!!
  • Good App, Still Needs Improvement

    By Meleahj
    I really like the look of the app, adding emojis to list titles for quick reference. and the ability to make many lists. I would love to see improvements particularly regarding recurring tasks. While, after quite a bit of hunting, I found how to get repeat reminders for tasks, it’s bothersome that there is not a way to have tasks already populated for each day on the daily task list or set for a specific day. This is the one feature I really miss from Todoist. I’m not that person that thinks clearly before 10am. I need to have my daily list ready the evening before so I have it to follow before my brain really wakes up. I know I can see them in Outlook - just wish I could see my todo’s for the day without having to turn on the laptop and go there.
  • Crisp, Clean, and Easy to use

    By ShaneMLK
    It’s easy to create, order, and customize my lists just how I want. My lists automatically sync on my Windows 10 App, in any browser, and in my iPhone app just by logging into my Microsoft account on each. My favorite part about the App is that it’s the perfect balance between simple and customizable. Each of my list looks unique and beautiful, without making me make too many decisions. It offers just the right amount of colors, icons, and backgrounds to choose from for my lists without making me overthink anything, so I can focus on getting stuff done without anxiety. If you’re looking for a complicated todo app, look elsewhere.
