Wish I’d starting using 2Do sooner


After spending many, many years using a different, well known, application for my [intensive] task management, I finally got fed up with some of its problems and limitations and, before following its upgrade path, decided to take the plunge and give 2Do a try. Gosh, I sure wish I’d started using 2Do years ago.

It’s always extremely difficult (and the cause for great apprehension) whenever considering a move from something that you’ve been using for YEARS and, in this case, that happens to control your daily life. You never realize how much you do completely automatically without even looking (especially if you’re a keyboard user and not a mouse user) until you’re trying to use something else. Much to my surprise and delight, making this change was a relative breeze. I’ve found 2Do to be more powerful, have more useful features, be better looking and has the ability to be substantially more customized by the user than the previous app I’d been using. During the trial period I experienced what seemed to be a glitch and I contacted the developer. I found the support to be absolultely GREAT. “Jerry" replied immediately (and was even actually willing to speak on the telephone from another country in order to get to the root of the problem).

I’m thrilled to now be using 2Do as my main task management application and even more pleased with the amazing support I've received during the first few weeks of using it.

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.



2Do is an absolute essential to keeping your life on track. It’s the most powerful, flexible task management software out there, and I’ve literally tried them all over the years. The mac app is a SUPER powerful companion to the iOS apps I take with me. There’s a keyboard shortcut for just about everything, context menus, drag n drop everywhere. It’s almost constantly syncing, so you never lose anything. Even if you start a task on your mac, what you captured will be ready on your phone or iPad to flesh out later. It lets you attach actions, like a phone number (one tap, and you’re making the call). Want a reminder when you get to a certain store? Easy! This app takes remembering out of your brain, and you don’t have to worry about it again. It’s right in 2do!

This app has only two shortcomings in my opinion, but they’re being worked on.
1. It doesn’t have it’s own sync platform, so features are inconsistent based on which you use. It works best with dropbox, but if you use icloud, it lets you capture tasks via siri, and syncs transparently.
2. There’s no web app, or windows app. It’s Mac/iOS only. 2Do is a BEAST for getting work done, but it doesn’t work at most people’s office.
