Toodledo might be the best match for my task management needs; it has Tasks, Notes, List, … But there are some problems with it. It doesn't provide a desktop version and doesn't work offline.

I want these features:

  • Working fine on Windows 7 and higher

  • Being free or open source

  • Supporting tasks

  • Providing reminders

  • Providing recurring tasks

  • Providing categories (and subcategories perhaps)

  • Providing notes (with sticking ability)

  • Providing contacts (it's not necessary)

  • Working fine when offline (I think this is the most important difference between Wunderlist and Microsoft To-Do)

I've already tried Wieldy, Task List Guru, Task Coach, Things, Wunderlist and Microsoft To-Do. I found Wunderlist the best one, but it's going to be discontinued and they stated that they stopped working on the Windows version already. It was somehow slow on Windows.

    Have a look at Trello.

  • @MSC Great suggestion. It provides a Windows app (not an installation) which doesn't work on older versions (for example Windows 7). And it doesn't work offline on Windows as they say. You need to add a Power-Up to enable recurring tasks: Menu > Power Ups > Card Repeater. I loved its Power-Up feature.

Try my Portable Kanban. Disclosure: I'm developer of PK.

  • It works offline.
  • It's free, can be used commercially. Works on Windows only.
  • It has a Pomodoro timer that is configurable (work/short pause/long pause intervals, sound).
  • Has topics and tags, configurable views.
  • Has a lot of options for configuring UI and board.
  • May be used for teams too (requires Redis server).

Here's a screenshot of the task backlog:

  • I tried it, but I couldn't find recurring option. Some usual commands are hidden in the Settings which isn't good. I think you can make it much better.

  • Note: Development stopped in early 2018, the website closed around 7/2018 – so sadly this software is no longer available. @Dmitry if you're still around and have an updated link, please provide it.
