Todoist is the most user-friendly and flexible to-do list app for iOS

1 The app is using language processing and predictive language to let you add tasks quickly.
2 It can be integrated with other popular apps, such as Google Calendar, Dropbox, or Zapier.

With over 10 million users and a 4.8 rating on App Store, Todoist has earned a reputation for being the simplest, most user-friendly and flexible to-do list app on the market.

Thanks to keyboard shortcuts, language processing and predictive language, adding tasks with dates, comments, priorities, tags and attachments is an extremely quick process – for example, if you type “Essay deadline Tuesday”, Todoist will automatically add the task “Essay deadline” with the next Tuesday set as due date.

What also makes the app stand out is the fact that it can be integrated with other popular apps, such as Google Calendar, Dropbox, or Zapier. Todoist has also been praised for syncing seamlessly across all devices.

However, as most reviewers underline, the free version is a little limited – you can’t access completed to-do lists and there’s a project limit, for example – so if you’re looking for a free substitute, Google Tasks is a great pick.
