Some of us call them “To-do list apps”, “task management software”, “task planners” or “daily planner apps”.¬†

No matter how you call them, these handy tools are available on both mobile phones and web browsers and can give us an awesome productivity boost.

Let’s dive right in. Here are my top picks for 2021:

What do Users like or don't like about ClickUp?

"ClickUp indeed allows to cut off various other tools and combines it into one task manager."

"The development team is open for feedback, there are constant updates and new features are added."

"The wide range of features can be overwhelming at the beginning and ClickUp has a bit of a learning curve. The customization options can also lead to spending a lot of time configuring the tool first."

"Many ways to customize how to view tasks and to-do lists. The goal and budget setting features are great."


ClickUp comes with a free version which is limited to 100MB storage.

More features and storage come at US$5 per month, paid annually. 

Business and Enterprise plans include additional features, such as SSO login and API access, mindmaps, automations and more.
