    Tasks.org, synced with Nextcloud tasks.

    You must download it from F-droid for the sync to be free. On Play Store it’s under a paywall by dev decision (to promote open source portals).

      Isn’t it moreso to support the dev easily?

      I used that until a few weeks ago. It does not support repeated tasks and the widget is essentially the only good thing about it. It’s also essentially unmaintained. Even used to donate to it regularly but nothing came of it.

      DavX5 suggested I switch to jtx board. It’s widget is not as pretty, but at last it’s feature complete.

      Edit: also Next cloud is a php security nightmare and it’s performance bottlenecks are a pain in the rear. For calendar/mail/tasks/contacts I use SoGO. It’s pretty barebones but works very well.

    I’ve tried so many and even programmed my own and none of them worked for me. I was especially disappointed in the ones that claimed to be AI-assisted.

      I just got used to being disappointed in myself and don’t make lists anymore.

      I wrote one many times over during my career that was amazingly effective, not just for myself but others, too. I can’t figure out how to write it for the phone because I am a crummy programmer. I would love to have it again. It had one feature that I am unable to find on any other to-do list app.

              In my last version I had a single list of tasks, and each had a list of “excuses” which were pointers to other tasks. I had filters for showing “all tasks”, “not done”, “can be done”. The one other feature that was helpful was being able to reorder tasks.

              Maybe I will get back to work on it. I thought I had found a perfect set of alpha users in the /r/productivity sub, but I’m not on reddit anymore.

            Yes, something like that is so helpful. Just even splitting something down into multiple steps so I will actually do it instead of staring at it in dread.

    I go around telling people my intentions, and then query them 100 times a day about what I should be doing at any given time. If they stop responding then I spam them with emails demanding updates, and if they block my emails then I go to their houses.

    I’m very productive.

      Went back to college last year and Joplin’s been amazing. More off-topic, but the only thing I wish it had was better search result organization.

        You go “Oh, right” then take it out and look at it. As quaint as that sounds, for some people it works.

          Since my second child, my “Oh right” module has been malfunctioning and has been very unreliable, and the amount of things I need to remember is waaay too many to fit on a piece of paper that can fit in my pocket. I wish I could use your system. 🥲

            For sure, there’s no way this system would work for me either! I would need a to do list in another place that had a task to check the first to do list.

    I’ve been meaning to find a todo app, but I always forget. I have no way to remind myself. It’s a viscous cycle.

      I hit reply to write something similar myself, but I forgot what it was. I wish there was a way to retrieve the things that fall out of my brain.

    I use a mix of Org mode via Emacs and Orgzly,

    and Notally, which is still my main notes app while I’m still working on transitioning to Orgmode completely.

    My main requirement is that it has to be available on my heavily locked down work phone and work laptop as well as my home ones. If it isnt in my face whenever I look at a screen, it isnt going to work. So it ends up being Google tasks.

      Same (wrt that last part). Trying to find one that works but it’s honestly exhausting after years of seeing them all be pretty much the same. And I can’t really articulate what it is that would make it be the one for me. I know I’m not helping in any way here, lol
