Why people are making the switch from Todoist to Ellie

A unique approach to tasks

Ellie is different from traditional todo-list apps with it's unique calendar planning view. We've recorded a quick demo so you can see it in action.

True time blocking

To time block in Todoist, you need to keep switching between Todoist and your calendar. Ellie has this built in, no "hacky" integrations needed.

A focus on consumers

Todoist has been focusing more on their team plans over the last few years. Ellie has no team plans (nor does one appear in the future) so all focus is on making a great consumer experience

Support Independent

Ellie is made by a single developer and has no investors. By supporting Ellie you are supporting independent app developers to continue making great experiences ❤️

" Ellie has been amazing for managing my school work. I literally don't think I can function without it "
