toodleHeadI am in the market for a new to-do list manager. As usual when I need a new task management online application (FOR FREE!), I went looking through the MakeUseOf directory and found Toodledo.

Toodledo is a surprisingly good to do list manager. It is really awesome and I thought I would show it to you today. If you wear many hats and have lots of tasks to do throughout the day you need some sort of task management system. If you don’t, you will fail – epically.

The web application features include the ability to use folders, subtasks, due-dates, priorities, tags, contexts, goals, notes, and time estimates. Did I mention that it also works seamlessly with the iPhone?

Let’s take a good look at ToodleDo :


You will need to sign up for a free account. You will see the sign in box on the right hand side and right below that will be the box to register. Hit that Green check mark next to the register button to continue.



All you have to give them is an email address and a password. You can also set up an account using your OpenID. There is a hyper link for this right below the sign in button.

Once you are logged in you will see the overview as you can see below.

Your menu bar is on the left but I mainly work out of the To-Do list. You will see two items already there for you to look at and play with. There will also be a tool tip telling you to check out the account settings page to dictate how the tasks are laid out. I did not see much difference in their two options. Clicking the Show Details option shows all the details associated with each task as you can see below:


Now let’s add our own item to the list. Simply hit the Add item button in the upper right hand corner and you will get a screen that looks like this:


Those are the basic fields and you will also see two buttons in the right hand side that say Add multiple tasks and Import tasks. The add multiple tasks window looks like this:


And the import window looks like this:


That is just a tip of the iceberg.  When it comes to importing and exporting, there are 3 more pages of options. But I digress and let’s get back to the actual task management online application.

Running down the menu the first item is Sharing. This enables you to let the world see your to-do list as well as your calendar and other options.

The calendar option shows you a calendar with your tasks on them. You can also choose to use Google Calendar instead. It is a simple check box under the calendar option.


The scheduler is a pay feature so on we move to the Goals section:


There is still Notes and History that are available for free and very handy for tracking completed tasks and adding, importing or exporting notes again with a plethora of options!

    It really irks me that I can't edit tasks from iCal and have a bidirectional sync with either my iPhone *or* my Mac.

    Other than that, Toodledo is fantastic.

    Toodledo is the BEST out there. And I have tried them ALL! I designed a userstyle to help with the UI.

    Hope you enjoy Toodledo as much as I do!

    There is also a good blackberry app @ I've been using Toodledo for a couple of years and love it. It's simple, accessible from mobile phones, sms, PC, and ties into everything else I use (Outlook, Google Cal, etc).

    The company had some downtime issues with their datacenter providers earlier in the year, but I think they have redistributed the application as a result. I also recommend the $15 a year for the pro level - the ability to have subtasks is absolutely worth it.

    I recently switched from Remember the milk to Toodledo. While Toodledo is not as slick as RTM, and requires more work to input tasks, I have found that the extra effort on input makes it easier to manage tasks and keep track of work later. It also has a statistics function and ways of examining your productivity so that you can improve your organization of tasks.
