My Requirements for a Todo App

A general purpose todo app has several requirements.

  • It must be frictionless to create a new task
  • It must have an uncluttered interface where I can see today‚Äôs tasks
  • It must allow tags or folders or both
  • It must have a good search function
  • It must be flexible in how it reminds you of tasks
  • It must allow prioritization of tasks
  • It must have an offline mobile app
  • It must be available on all of your computing platforms

There are also some softer requirements (but I can live without them)

  • It should integrate well with other productivity tools (calendar, notes, etc)
  • It should allow collaboration with other people
  • It should support various project management workflows (kanban, GTD, bug tracking)
