I used Toodledo for years, then moved to ToDoist after Toodledo changed hands. After playing with Toodledo today, I remembered how much I liked it and at the same time, how much I disliked the dated interface & the outliner. And, yes, the lack of integration was a little frustrating.

ToDoist seems to have finally fixed their historical problem of throwing tasks and subtasks into one shapeless list (or maybe that was an iOS problem?).

It’s so slick though, it makes me a little nervous. Maybe it’s the widget staring me in the face every day, or that I get so hung up on the colors & am constantly re-doing my setup, completely defeating the purpose. But the same projects, tasks, filters & tags don’t give me that panicky feeling in Toodledo, so I may go back to it.

I also eventually went from Toodledo to Todoist, with a few stops in between, but am mostly using Clickup these days.  It is not perfect, but I do like it a lot.  Something to consider if you are interested.  As far at Toodledo goes, I cannot see going back.  The UI was a challenge when I used it, and it still has not changed.

I moved from Toodledo to Amazing Marvin, and the difference was night and day. AM has a modern, clean look, a responsive keyboard-friendly interface, a flexible design, and not a grid in sight. In terms of task management, AM has many tools to help you limit overwhelm, whereas Toodledo always made me feel I was losing the forest in the trees.

It looks quite interesting, but the price is above what I would consider within the mid-range for comparable products.

Yes indeed, it is expensive. So it depends on the user if it’s worth it for them.  I find it a worthwhile investment to manage my working life.
