Overall Satisfaction with Todoist

I use it for my own different business and personal projects. I don't share it with co-workers. Basically I brainstorm ideas and put them in different buckets, and later I put priorities and dates on them. This helps me organize myself while I have a lot of things I participate in. Previously I've done everything on paper and in Trello. Todoist solves the overwhelm partially, could be better tho.
  • Alternative to pen and paper planning.
  • Can easily move tasks between projects and break things down to smaller ones.
  • I like ability to prioritize and put dates with shortcuts when writing the name of the task.
  • Lots of keyboard shortcuts that are helpful and save time.
  • Multiplatform, you can use it as browser extension, their website, apps and in gmail.
  • I don't like that you need to buy premium to use tags, such things are often available for free in competition.
  • It does not have its own calendar type of feature, only couple following days, I use google calendar with it.
  • Saves me time and brain power, because I can put almost all there and not think about it.
  • Gives me clarity in what step to take next and what could be prioritized.
  • I am able to see more of what's currently going on within projects and the overall picture.
I've used Trello before, but for me it has a lot of features focused on team work and file sharing which I don't need. I think Trello is better for teams and small projects.
ToDoist is better for my specific use cases as I have a lot of projects and tasks, while in Trello with so many tasks I couldn't clearly see the big picture and it was harder to dive deeper. Todoist solved my big projects overwhelm issue.
I didn't need to contact the support, but there are lots of helpful blog posts and faqs available, so I give them a good 7/10 rating for that.
Why 7? Because I think there could be more hints and helpful AI smart algorithms inside the tool that help newbies and everyone to implement productivity strategies. It could be a premium option.

I don't think its suitable for teamwork, but I have not really used it for that.
It's very good in helping to get organized and implement different organizing strategies from the productivity literature such as Getting Things Done.
Also it's not good for planning specific days as it doesn't have a hour by hour calendar.
It's great for setting goals, breaking down big projects, moving tasks between them and prioritization.
