GTD®, XYZ and everything in between - it can handle it all. Seriously.

See and believe:

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.

Sync is slow and unreliable

I used to be able to rely on this app - and paid a pretty penny for it! Now the MacOS version is virtually worthless as it won't update to sync with the updates I make on my iphone.

Tried others, have stuck with this one

I've tried several alternatives, including ToDo, Things, Todoist, and Todledoo. 2Do is the sweet spot, with lots of features but a great interface and Mac, iPhone, and iWatch interfaces.

I especially like the Mac app, and it makes it easy for me to enter and review items. I can certainly do this from the phone app, but the Mac app makes it fly.

The only thing I can ask for would be to have an iWatch complication that shows the number of items in the list of choice (which would of course include 2Do's excellent smart lists) and let me click to look at the list. A watch reminder is my ultimate goal so I'm not tied to looking at my phone.

(Maybe they could implement a sync to Apple's Reminders, putting whatever my chosen list is into a chosen list in Reminders. Then I could use Apple's Reminders complications. Just a thought.)

I also like the fact that 2Do is currently still a free app with an upgrade to Pro, but no subscription. Maybe they'll move to subscriptions, but subscriptions are traps.

Long time user, but not as pleased as I was.

I have been using this app for a very long time on both Mac and iOS. They should have left it alone as it is getting less useful and reliable with each "upgrade". May start looking for an alternative.

Biggest issues:

1) Confusing interface that makes it hard to create new tasks.

2) Tasks fail to sync between iOS and Mac.

3) Repeated tasks just disappear.
