Why Todoist Remains My Perfect Task Manager

Using TickTick made me reevaluate my relationship with Todoist and which made me appreciate more just how good Todoist is. I have been a premium member for many years and nothing gives me more pleasure than responding to the alert that my annual subscription is due than to cough up for another 12 months.
