Is Toodledo dead?

I received a life time subscription offer for Toodledo, which is rather tempting. However, the iOS app is 2 years old and their blog has not been updated since May and there’s a lot of chatter that Toodledo is dead in the water.

Anyone using toodledo who can shed some light?

I have not used my account in years, but I have received a number of emails from them over the past few months.  I believe they have a new CEO and are trying to revive/refresh the product.  In this day and age, it will take a lot of effort to succeed IMHO as there are so many other products in the same space.

Depends on the price. If the tier they’re offering is at an especially good price and you like the workflow, then go for it.  They’ve been around, and limping along, for 15 years, so I doubt they’re about to close down. But the app/service design needs a serious refresh.

I remember that in 2017 WeDo offered a lifetime Pro subscription through StackSocial for $20, at a time when the yearly subscription was more than that. (Yearly is now $40.) I’d assumed they were making some sort of last-ditch effort for funding and worried that they’d soon disappear, but although no one talks about them much anywhere it’s still an ongoing service.

So I don’t think that ToodleDo is necessarily going anywhere, but they may not currently have the funding to make anything but slower, incremental advances right now.

It’s a tough market, with lots of free options, and lots of much bigger competitors with Pro plans that cost in the same ballpark. Again, ultimately it depends on whether you like using the app and would be happy if nothing major improved.

Thanks guys. It’s a similar stacksocial deal. I’m not going for it as it runs out tomorrow.

I’m moving most of my computing to non-subscription software and this came along and gave me pause for thought.
