I’m looking toward finding a checklist applications similar to Todoist or IOS Reminders that are more privacy respecting. I’ve been looking at Quire for awhile but was wondering if there are more private alternatives available for both windows and ios?
Did you find an alternative? I am looking for a privacy respecting todo app that has similar features as todoist.
I would say to look at this list of To Do List Apps and their Privacy Sections to find out whats right for you. For me, I’m trying out Quire for its simple and privacy oriented tos, as well as having (limited) reminder notifications in the free plan.
To update you regarding what I use, Quire has been for the most part, nice to use, however unfortunately I’ll be switching away from it soon. No due to any privacy concerns but rather a quirk of the service. There are gonna be limits to Quire that you will be forced to deal with, the most annoying being that you can’t set daily, monthly, or yearly reminders, just varying weekly reminders.
What made me leave was what it took to recover a bunch of tasks. In Quire, you aren’t able to create task right away. You must create a project under your “organization”, then you can add tasks to that project. Should you delete your project, you can recover it, if you’re a paid member. You have to spend at least $11 on their lowest-level subscription in order to recover a project, more than half of what todoist puts their lowest tier in.
Potentially relevant thread in case of cross-platform solutions: Which todo list app do you use on android?
Things is my go-to, if not iOS Reminders. As far as I can tell, cloud/syncing is entirely disabled by default, until you create and log into an account with Cultured Code.
I use the stock iOS Reminders app with a self-hosted Radicale server.
Don’t laugh, but for personal stuff, I use a notepad and a pen…I have an alarm set every day for 6:00pm to remind me to look at the list and accomplish as much of it as possible.
At work, where privacy is impossible, I use TickTick.
