Todoist vs Amazing Marvin

Amazing Marvin
(setup to mimic Todoist)

Todoist has nowhere near the amount of flexibility and friendliness of a UX as Marvin does.

I find Marvin to beat out Todoist in almost every way.

After seeing Marvin, with its huge amount of strategies, my longtime favourite Todoist seems boring to me, so it's hard to change back again.

Amazing Marvin has all the tools I’d been using together in one place. It’s like if Todoist never stopped growing.

Amazing marvin is... well, amazing. Probably one of the best project management / to-do list apps I've ever tried (I'm a big Todoist user).

I discovered Amazing Marvin 6 months ago and it is MUCH better than any other app I used in the past (Todoist, TickTick, etc).
