Todoist Replacement for Linux & Android

What are your favorite alternative for Todoist that will run on Fedora and sync with Android?

My new home computer is running Fedora 36. I've been able to install or replace most of what I used under Windows. Except Todoist. Todoist has been my "life organizer" for many years and I am unfortunately a disorganized mess without it.

- Sync with Android
- Free or very low cost
- Supports "fuzzy dates" (Every third Friday, every last weekday, etc) and recurring tasks
- Notifications/reminders for scheduled things (Task at 8am, get notification at 7:30)
- Projects and/or subtasks
- Comments on tasks

Nice to have:
- Dark mode
- Sync w/ calendar (Google)
- IFTTT support/integration

Don't care about:
- Gamification

Does Todoist's Linux version not do what you need?

Web version?

Response by poster: Web version is great... except that it gets lost in the mess of open and pinned tabs, which leads to me getting distracted by said open/pinned tabs because of mis-clicks when I remember to check it.

As a workaround, at least for now, you could keep the web version open in its own browser window on its own desktop (not sure what desktop environment or windows manager you're using, but it almost certainly has multiple desktops). Or run it in a separate browser altogether.

todo.txt is pretty great, free, and has android and linux support.

I think Remember the Milk fills most of your requirements (fuzzy dates, etc.). There's a free edition and they have a Linux version.

Best answer: Did you try this to get the Appimage to work?

The Todoist web page wrapped in something like might be a solution?

Linux Mint offers a similar solution via their webapp-manager program.

It looks like it's available for Fedora via

I've only used the latter, back when I was on Mint and it's a cinch to set up, etc.

Response by poster: Apparently I was looking in all the wrong places. The Appimage worked! Thanks!
