Review: Toodledo - Lots of Features - Little Design

Toodledo is a poorly designed task organizer that comes equiped with a couple of interesting features such as scheduler and statistics.

Feature Set
  • create a task
    • folder
    • due date
    • repeat
    • priority
    • note 
    • context 
    • location 
  • display and sort tasks in a list
  • longtime goals 
In the Pro Version (15$ per year) or Pro Plus (30$ per year) of toodledo you have access to following additional features:
  • scheduler (toodledo tells you what you should work on)
  • task sharing with collaborators
  • file upload
  • statistics of tasks
  • notebook for reference material
  • history 
Overall the impression is, that toodledo attempts to do a lot of things and does not focus on one user scenario or user flow.

Feature Rating:  2/5
Design and Usability

The overall design is very crowded and poorly layouted. A lot of colors, shapes and links are visible without being prioritized in any way. I felt annoyed pretty fast and would not use toodledo on a daily basis. 
The performance was acceptable even though the page reloads inbetween different features had me waiting for a while. 

Design Rating: 1/5 

Overall Impression

Toodledo sure does have a wide range of features most of which are only available in the Pro or Pro Plus version. The design is rather annoying and does not help to get things done.

Overall Rating: 1/5
