Sync Tasks: ToodleDo Free Link vs. the ToDo $10 iPhone Application.
Way back in part one I ended up the article with:
There is also a third party iPhone / iPod touch application that will synchronize with Toodledo and allow you to work offline. This application is called Todo and is available from Appigo on the iTunes App Store for about $10 but to be honest I don’t see the advantage of paying for it.

I’ve been using Appigo Todo for a few weeks now and won’t go without it. The huge advantage it has is that I have my tasks everywhere, even in the mountains where I don’t even get cell coverage. Totally worth the $10 to me just for that alone! Another plus is that it’s a lot more zippy, especially compared to the slow edge network in my area.
I love it when readers leave comments like that!
So I bought the $10 Todo and ran it side-by-side with ToodleDo’s iPhone optimized task list. I found that I did indeed like the ability to quickly check my tasks without having to go online. I found myself leaning more and more towards ToDo when another reader emailed me to let me know that ToodleDo had a new horse in the race . . .
ToodleDo is now available as a native application on your iPhone. You can use it as a standalone application, or you can have it seamlessly synchronized with Toodledo.com, so you will always have access to your important tasks, even when you don’t have an internet connection.
I have now uninstalled the $10 ToDo application, deleted the link to the ToodleDo web application and absolutely love the $4 native ToodleDo application.
Toodledo on the iPhone has most of the same functionality that you get from using the website, and I am amazed by the amount of stuff you can do to your task list from their website. Check it out here.
