I would have to say that overall Microsoft To-Do is a fantastic app and definitely the best to-do list app I have used. They make it very easy for someone with an ever growing and changing list of things that need to be done to organize everything in their life. For example: I have my main tasks listed in the default list but I also have a list for each of the jobs I work, and a group with lists for all of my college classes and their assignments. And the best part is you can view everything that needs to be done today, tomorrow, next week, and later from all of those lists all on one page in the “Planned” tab. This app also works really well across multiple platforms by instantly syncing changes. I use it on my iPhone, iPad, and Windows PC. A main feature I would really love to see added for the versions on iOS and iPadOS is the ability to add Microsoft To-Do to your widgets this way you can see and check things off your list all right from your home screen. My biggest complaint is that whenever you add a task from the “Planned” tab it defaults to being due yesterday??? But overall it’s a to-do list app and I think you would have a really difficult time finding a better one out there.
Are you looking to improve in 2020? I am! That is why I think you all should look into acquiring a good daily planner app on your phone. I use Microsoft To Do and it feels great! We all got these huge things that we need to do, but it’s great to break it those monster tasks into a bunch of smaller tasks. I get this feeling of accomplishment when I check off a few of the small tasks. Like.. I did it! I wasn’t lazy today! I got a few things done! And, that is a great feeling to have when you struggle with mental wellness because that’s a huge issue these days. We have more people battling depression and anxiety these days. I’m working on moving into an apartment in about a month and due to not being able to work, I am the one responsible in my household for making sure everything goes smoothly for the move. So, I list tasks like.. Pack a box full of clothes. Empty out the closet. Organize stuff for donation, trash, and packing for the apartment. Having a planner helps me organize what I need to do. I make my to do list each night before I go to bed or as soon as I wake up. It won’t work for everyone, but it might help you and it’s worth a try. I hope everyone has a good year and you accomplish what you set out to do. I still need to work on myself, but I’m already a better person than I was last year and that feels great to say! 💜
I am a physician and a scientist who requires a good to-do app to keep everything straight on a daily basis. Wunderlist was really the perfect tool for this, allowing me to organize and share tasks with lab members and clinical colleagues. When I learned it would eventually replace wunderlist, I decided to give To-Do a solid try. I imported all my lists from wunderlist, familiarized myself with all of To-Do’s features, and used it in place of Wunderlist for a good week. Unfortunately, a year after it’s unveiling, To-Do still needs a lot of work. The lack of a way to group related lists and the inability to automatically place tasks that are due today into the “my day” folder are critical deficiencies. Sure you can click the lightbulb in the “my day” folder and select all the upcoming tasks with the help of “suggestions,” but many (like me) cant remember to do that on a daily basis. The point of a to-do app is to make remembering all of your daily tasks unnecessary. I had so many issues with missing things (I literally have a hundred tasks some days) that I had to switch back to Wunderlist within a week. I know that the Microsoft team is working hard on To-Do behind the scenes. I plan to keep checking in and switch to to-do once it truly integrates all the features of wunderlist.
This is like every other notepad app out there, meaning it does nothing helpful for how people put together real life task lists. I use my iPhone’s notepad with checkboxes, and manually update tasks for everything i do. Some are daily, some are long-term. So of course a real to do list app would be able to organize that right? And allow daily tasks to reoccur and be completed daily, alongside long-term ones. Well this app, like all the others, doesn’t. You can make tasks reoccur... but they won’t show up in ‘My Day’ by default. BUT after you complete one for the day (eg. Brush teeth), it’ll just reappear randomly in the list with subtext of ‘tomorrow’, which is beyond useless, beyond unintuitive or logical, and clutters the entire list. Then the whole ‘My Day’ feature gets pretty dumb if tasks can’t autopopulate there. All in all, giving Microsoft the responsibility to make something intuitive is always bound to fail, so this is really just like every other worthless, weakly supported, temporarily-named, overlapping functionality MS product out there. Win10’s, and to a lesser extent the Office suite is fine (necessary evils really, you can’t escape Windows or Office), but don’t let that fool you into thinking ANYTHING else they ever introduce in their ecosystem is useful or useable.
Recent release (end of Sept 2019) is very buggy with random duplication of tasks and confusion when you try to move a task from the MyDay list. But I have been using this app for a few months before writing the review and have found that the programmers are dedicated and listening. Bugs don’t stick around through the next revision and the revisions are every couple of weeks on average( see version history). Not to mention the new features and improvements they keep introducing. The app is organized and flexible with a good balance of options and ease of use. You can start out very simple if you want, and add in complexity as you get comfortable. I am thrilled with my choice and will stick with them through the growing pains ( many of my apps seem buggy with iOS 13 so I actually blame apple for a poor roll-out) because by now I trust the developers to fix it!
