The philosophy behind Todoist

Based on their tagline (“Start getting more done in less time”), their app and blog contents Todoist focuses on improving productivity and helping users complete more tasks every single day. Productivity is a recurring keyword:

“Redefining productivity since 2007”

“At Doist, we specialize in productivity software.”

“How Exceptionally Productive People End The Workday”

Todoist does use the concept of priority, but it doesn’t have a central role in their time management philosophy.

What makes WEEK PLAN different

The difference between WEEK PLAN and other productivity tools is its vision on time management. 

While most apps help you become more “productive” by encouraging you to tick as many tasks as possible, WEEK PLAN helps you keep your goals in mind and focus on what is the most important – or become more effective.

We put emphasis on completing the tasks that matter, not on ticking a large number of tasks so you feel overwhelmed and exhausted at the end of the day.

This is why you can mark tasks as urgent and/or important – so you prioritize activities and feel in control of your life.

    Love Week Plan!! I have struggled with using Todoist for years because without a calendar view of my tasks I could not visualize the “big picture” of what I have to manage, not only for myself, but for my other roles and obligations as well. Weekplan is like a much better version of Todoist: it has Google calendar integration, sms text notifications, lists, a Chrome extension, prioritizing of tasks, etc. Keep up the great work, guys!
