I have tried Things, OmniFocus, The Hit List, SimpleTask, Apple Reminders, Notes, TextEdit (very simple), etc. All these help to be a useful for task management.

I decided to keep the 2Do for simplify, useful and tight user interface, more...

Very nice app. I can't really say what's the magic behind this software (really good UI?), but 2Do has, somehow its own charisma and charm. I've tried all actual "to-do" apps, and though there are many good, I'd say "2Do" is the best of all. Best wishes to the developers & designers.

I've been using this on iOS and the Mac for a while now, after having used Things, The Hit List, and tried Omnifocus. Wunderlist is only good for grocery lists.
This Mac version 1.5 is a good upgrade in many ways, but a downgrade in one key area: no way to add an email task as a link, so that you can get back to the email from 2do. The old applescript workaround from v1 does work to add the message, but it does not seem possible to get back to the message.

I mean, this seems like such an absolute key usability function for software like this for someone actually working at a computer, it's crazy not to include it. Sure, an item like Walk the Dog is easy to add, tag, etc -- but who needs software for that? When I'm getting tasks by email from clients through the day, that's when things are complicated and I need help from software. Do I need to keep Things open so I can deal with clients/emails and then use 2do for everything else? Too bad!

I have tried Things, OmniFocus, The Hit List, SimpleTask, Apple Reminders, Notes, TextEdit (very simple), etc. All these help to be a useful for task management.

I decided to keep the 2Do for simplify, useful and tight user interface, reference calendar with task markings, reminder numbers, due dates number icons, reminder alarm, voice notations, colorize able category titled, etc.

Even with all these useful functions, the interface was not cluttered and very simplified due to a thoughtful UI design. It also has a good typographic layout for easy reading and looking graphically nice. I also like the way it does not take up too much vertical space.

Very well done. I can tell by the app the creator has put a lot of effort and dedication in developing this awesome software.

One other comment is I wished that the develop had offered better Appearance > TooBar Styles.

I would love to see a high-tech pattern such as the perforated patters such as the carbon fiber sample here - http://subtlepatterns.com/carbon-fibre-2/

I am not sure if this is easily doable but if it's possible for user to add their own patterns, that would be really cool.

A breath of fresh air. This does a nice job of being a simple task minder that easily expands, if you want it to, to manage projects with subtasks and loads of meta-info.

I do agree with most of the wish-list items of previous reviewers, but I find it to be the task manager that keeps calling me back, despite having used the other big names.

I, too have tried them all. Really love OmniFocus and Things, but decided to give 2Do a try on my Mac. I like that it seamlessly integrates Reminders and with some iOS calendar programs lists these along with my events for the day.

This marks the first app I've purchased in the AppStore, so it must be good! And many thanks to the demo, so I was able to try it out first. It also helped that I already had the iOS version and kind of knew what I was getting myself into.

I do not know if 2Do will be the last word [I still use Things and am waiting for OF version 2.x to come out] but for now it is working like a charm!

have tried many of these apps, Things, Wunderlist, Omnifocus, etc etc... at the end 2Do is the one I'm feeling most comfortable with - an intuitive interface and a good balance between features and clutter, and sync with iCloud so I can use Siri (and I feel this was the deciding point).

Some easy things that are still missing:
1) you should be able to insert links to emails and contacts the same way you can do for files or URLs
2) the quick task feature should capture the frontmost URL, email, file, etc. automatically, the same way Things does.
3) you should be able to snooze/reschedule notifications easily, be it in the notification itself or in the 2Do window
4) when you click on a file url it should open the file, not just show it in the finder

and the not-so-easy ones of course:
1) teamwork: contacts, delegation
2) contexts?
3) task sequence templates: i.e. you have a task template called "send quote", when you mark it as done immediately another one pops called "follow up call", and so on. Or at least some option like: if you press and hold the "done" checkbox, a pop-up appears to create a follow-up task (marks this one as done and creates a new one for 1d, 2d, 3d, 1w, or so depending on your selection).

I used the iOS version of 2do since the beginning. And at the beginning I was very happy with its huge amount of features. But after some weeks I began to use simple paper todo lists again. Why? Because it is simple to use. I realized that despite the nice UI and the features it is too difficult to use.
And it's the same with the Mac version for me. I really tried to love this program and it is beautiful and all but when I add a project and try to add subtasks it takes too long. I can't use it for work because when I have to add tasks very fast I still need too much time. I can't use it for university for the very same reason. I returned using Apples Reminders.app because of its simpleness. Don't get me wrong, I am not satisfied with Reminders, either, but I can add tasks with Fantastical very fast.
For people who have time and like to work a lot with their touchpad and their mouse, 2do is a good choice because of the features. For those who want to add projects, subtasks and so on very fast, have to try it, if it fits their needs.

I have used 2do on my IOS devices for a long time now and there is no better to-do program out there. I love it. When they have come out with a desk top version I was so excited to maybe have a complete to-do system complete with a good balance of features, consistently working sync, a reasonable price tag and a an intuitive and pleasing interface.

The 2do people did deliver on the promised goods and the program is everything I wanted EXCEPT the desktop interface. It lacks the disarming presentation of the IOS version. There is nothing wrong with it but it just looks more like the IOS version than the IOS version does?

That said it is a good solid program and I have paid for most of them. If you are not into strict GTD processes and steep learning curves but seamless sync, intuitive interface that is a little stark but easy on the eyes this is it.

2Do was my preferred todo list app on iOS and so I gave the mac app a try. And what can I say? I am using it for about 2 weeks now and it replaced Cultured Code's Things.
The main reason for the switch was the iCloud sync as I don't want to be bound to any developer and its own introduced service. 2Do works as advertised and I couldn't find any problems yet. If you need more than a simple todo list, give 2Do a try. With the feature set for a high but reasonable price tag, it is worth to have a closer look.
