2Do lets you take a completely different approach to managing your tasks. With its extremely simple-to-use interface and a comprehensive and flexible set of powerful features, it lets you focus on what's most important to you: your life. There is no wrong way of using 2Do, and unlike other to-do apps, it won't force you in adhering to a particular task management methodology.

Most Helpful Reviews
Finally, what I’ve been looking for!!!!! Switched from "The Hit List” and I’ve never been happier!! - I’ve been a long-time user of The Hit List because its user interface and features were the best out there. BUT, it was an app that never got any further attention from the developer (just read The Hit List reviews) so it eventually fell behind in the competition with mobile apps. I tried to find a replacement over the past couple years and tried: Things, OmniFocus, RTM, etc. Nothing filled all my needs and some of them were downright painful to use (yes, OmniFocus - I’m talking to you). THEN, I finally came across 2Do. I had tried it in the past, but it had been a long time. WOW, it has come a long way! It’s not as pretty as The Hit List UI, but 2Do is awesome and has all the power you want. I love the flexibility of the interface and how much customization and control you have over how you see your content. Sync works perfectly through Dropbox! The iPad app and the iphone app are spot-on. Is it a perfect replacement for The Hit List? No, but it’s 95% there. I will miss the super clean UI of THL and the ability to set estimated time for your tasks in THL (2Do team - I hope you’re reading this). That being said, it’s definitely worth switching. After several months using it, I’ve never been happier in my decision. Try it, you’ll love it.
No - I already told your blue dot I don’t want to go the review page. But it insists I leave a review. So my review is 1 star because I don’t want to be elbowed over and over into leaving reviews.

Best productivity app by far! - 2Do is absolutely awesome! I've been using the iOS app for about 4 years. I've been using the Mac app since it came out. I have tried many other task solutions and every-single-time they all just prove how much 2Do shines above the rest. This is a very well developed app. It is also very feature rich, intuitive, and well thought out. Apps like this make using technology useful and relevant to a productive life. Thank you so much guys and keep up the good work!!!
Best fully-functional to-do app out there… but... - I have relied on this app for a long, long time. Every time I try another app, I come crawling back to this one. It’s got every function for tasks, and it makes you wonder why other task managers are so weak on the features. Some don’t even have due dates! Most others will charge you money for a search feature, start dates, recurring features, etc. Most lately will insist on a subscription in order to unlock what ought to be the most basic of features. I really appreciate the pay-once-and-use-it model. I also like that it synchronizes between my devices, and in using iCloud sync, I can use Siri to add tasks into 2do (although the built-in reminders app is utterly useless). My major complaint is that I can’t get these tasks anywhere on a windows machine. I use mac at home, but windows at work, and I feel forced to find another, lesser app, in order to get stuff done at work, and that’s where I most need this app! I wish there were a solution, whether a windows app, a web-browser version with the familiar interface, or something! It wouldn’t have to store my data, which I’d happily continue to store in iCloud. It would just need to read the data, and present it in a browser. I won’t mark-down the rating because this app truly deserves all 5 stars, but this one shortcoming is quite substantial and might drive an enthusiastic user into the clutches of another app instead.
Almost perfect - minus constant updates - 2Do has been my most used / most important app for the last several years. My only complaint - starting a few months back, it seems every single day when I open 2Do to check my task list it asks me to update the app. It’s really annoying when I’m trying to work to constantly be prodded to download updates via pop-up menus. I wish there was an option to opt-out of being notified of updates through intrusive pop-ups in the middle of working and only have the app refresh in the background or something unless the update is critical.
Difficult inconsistency - I use 2Do regularly and find it very useful but it has some quirks that slow me down, sometimes to the point of feeling the need to write a review (since there doesn’t appear to be a Send Feedback option in the app). In particular, the option to create a new taks by pressing enter when in another task title is something I find extremely useful - it makes good sense to me - but this operates in an inconsistent manner depending on where I’m working, a custom list versus Inbox. So, in one case, working in a project in a list I set up… if I am adding a task and then press Enter a new task is added to that project. Perfect. I can type in the next title and press Enter again to add another task. Even better, I can select a task in the project (not editing the title, just having it selected) and press enter and a new task is added to that project. Perfect. No, the other case…. I’m working on a project but this time in the Inbox. I create a new task (so I’m editing the title) and press enter and a new task is added to the project. So far so good. Now I highlight a task in that project and press Enter. This time a new standalone task is created *above* the project I was working in, not what I wanted. Worse still, if I type in a title and press Enter I am now editing the title of the project I had been working in! Horrible. What’s worse… if I press Enter again (perhaps after blowing away the title of my project) I now skip down to the next project in Inbox and am suddenly editing the title of that project instead of adding a new task. If one is not paying attention this could create a lot of work, trying to restore unintentionally renamed projects. Considering how good this app is otherwise it’s surprising that this kind of inconsistency is present.
