Prepare for a productivity boost because an official Todoist app for Linux desktops has been released.
Todoist is a task and project management service with serious pedigree as more than 20 million people use it to arrange, plan, track, and collaborate on projects, tasks, and other todos.
Official Todoist apps have long been available on Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS. Now Linux joins the family too.
Using Todoist you can:
- Create and organise tasks quickly
- Set due dates and recurring due dates
- Collaborate on projects
- Assign tasks to other users
- Assign priority levels to tasks and subtasks
- Integrate with Gmail, Slack, Amazon Alexa, etc
The Todoist Linux app has all of the same features as the Todoist apps for macOS and Windows. This parity is made possible because these desktop apps aren’t really apps at all but wrappers around the (frequently updated) Todoist web app. A few extra bells and whistles (like a system tray item) are included though.
Though a web-wrapped app isn’t as exciting as a native client the feature parity among the desktop apps is a definite boon. Linux users aren’t left out or treated any differently. The app also works offline; it’s web-based but not web-dependent.
Overall, Todoist manages to strike a balance between powerful features and ease of use. It’s not as souped-up as other, more serious task management software but is far more accessible to regular users as a result. Todoist describes itself as the tool you can “take anywhere” and with the Linux version now available that claim is finally true.
If you don’t currently use to-do list software then Todoist is a great place to start. Its clear, uncluttered, and easy to master with enough advanced features tucked beneath the surface should you need them.
