Some of the To Do List apps recommended for the GNU / Linux desktop (some are also available in web version and for mobile devices) are:

  • Joplin: is a free and open source To Do List app that can work offline. In addition, you can also use it as a web, in the terminal, and on mobile devices, synchronizing in all of them. It also allows geolocation, adding files, supports Enex files (Evernote) and plugins can be installed.

  • Planner: it is a very robust, free and open source app. It has a simple and modern graphical interface from which you can view events, plan your day, organize tasks into sections, show progress indicators, schedule reminders, etc. In addition, it works offline and has a dark mode.
  • Zenkit ToDo: another freemium version of To Do List to keep your tasks organized, as well as your appointments, notes, events, add notes, shopping lists, tools for collaborative work, file sharing, etc.
  • everdo: is a free multiplatform app like GTD (Getting Things Done), a well-known method to improve productivity.
