To Do List With Subtasks/ Tree View For Windows + Android
February 18, 2017 11:26 AM   Subscribe

My primary/ deal-breaker requirement for a To Do list is that I am able to create sub/ child tasks on the primary/ parent task, and view them in a tree view. In Windows I currently use My Life Organized for this and it is awesome, but to sync with an Android phone costs horrible $$$'s, and I don't care much for the app either. What are other To Do lists with subtasks/ tree views which either sync across Windows & Android (preferably), or are web based? Thanks!

I am not sure Remember the Milk ticks all of your requirements, but you should at least take a quick has changed a lot over the's relatively inexpensive, has smart lists, sub-tasks, Android and Web, but I don't think there's a tree view per se (or at least not that I've noticed). Just FYI in case .

Not many choices out there. I've tried just about all of them, and still use GTO Tasks (found at:

I'm a huge fan of Trello, too.

Workflowy is dead simple, works perfectly via browser and Android app, has great keyboard shortcuts, and is free up to 250 list items.

Trello isn't exactly tree-oriented and at any rate really only has a couple levels of subtasking. I feel your pain, OP, I haven't been able to find one exactly like I want it to work.

Task management apps with subtasks:, Todoist, Toodledo, GQueues. Unfortunately, most apps want you to pay to get subtask functionality.

Trello. List = Top level. Card = Sub-level 1. Checklist(s) = Sub-level 2.

I like Checkvist for extremely simple tree todo lists. I mostly use it on a desktop but there's a mobile web version that works reasonably well.

I get it, it's just useful to have sub-levels 3-∞, too.

Thanks, all! On further review, it looks like sticking with My Life Organized is probably the best option here: although you need the Pro version for both Windows & Android ($60 + $25) for wifi sync (i.e. = horrible $$$'s), they also offer cloud sync for the Standard versions ($30 (which I already own) + $free) for $15/ year, which I think = totally reasonable $$$'s (and I'm really not sure why you'd prefer wifi vs cloud sync anyway). I've also just watched the Android Overview Tutorial and it looks like the app will do what I need, w/r/t subtasks. I'll update this thread if I encounter any issues with the cloud sync.
