Update March 20, 2022, Things or Todoist
After using Todoist for 2 weeks, I’ve decided to stick with Things. Here’s why.
These three things were a dealbreaker for Todoist:
- This first item is a privacy issue and a big deal for me. In Todoist, if you delete a task, it is not actually deleted because there is an entry made in the Activity Log for the deleted item. The Activity Log is a log of every single thing you’ve done in Todoist, and there is only one way to delete the log. That is to delete your account. In Things, a deleted task is deleted and not recorded in the Logbook. And, any or all items in the Logbook can be deleted.
- In Todoist, having to assign a project to every task was annoying.
- In Todoist, you cannot create a checklist within a task. This is something that a do fairly often in Things.
In addition, the aesthetic of Things is much cleaner and more organized, and I can also see my calendar events. I did like Todoist's’ natural language entry. I would like to see that in Things at some point.
