Siri integration?


Wondering if Siri integration is coming soon. I have seen comments about it dating back some years but to no avail.
I use Outlook daily and love the Outlook add-in. But I also create a good portion of my tasks on the go, with my iPhone and so Siri integration is key. I don't really want to add task through sending an email. Current GTD I use (Remember The Milk) has flawless Siri integration - but I need some added functions in Todoist.
Hope you guys can bring it. It's a wonder why it's not a function yet.

Hi Roman,

We can't say when this happens, but we already have Google Now support on the Android side, so it's very likely Siri will be next.

If Todoist could 'read' from the built in reminders app, we would already have Siri integration. Toodledo reads from the reminder app, RTM has a special server for the default reminder and reads from that. Appigo Todo does the same with a special serve for reminder integration. So simply reading from the reminders all would give Siri integration.

How hard can it be? Look at "Braintoss" for iOS. It send a spoken message to my mailbox. Now it's my workaround until Siri intergation is ready.

Seriously, my RTM pro membership is up on 11/6/14. I would love to upgrade my Todoist membership to pro, but the lack of Siri integration is a deal breaker for me. I think so much on the go, I need Siri integration.

Oh and btw, I'm only listed as Premium user b/c I am test driving other pro functionalities through Todoist's free 30-day test drive. Am more than willing to pay the $29 yearly to go pro all the way - but need Siri. :)

This may help people in the meantime. This is how I am using Siri to send tasks to Todoist:

I created a list in the Reminders app called 'Tasks' (or any name you want to use)
In IFTTT.com i created a recipe that checks for new items in the 'Tasks' list and emails them to the Todoist email address <Project...>

I then tell Siri to add 'blah blah blah' to the 'Tasks list' and it goes into Todoist.

Its not as complicated as it sounds and not everyone may want to go to this option. It is an free option though.

The IFTT thing is very good. However, I and found it can take an hour or more to fire off and get a task from reminders into Todoist.

And the IFTTT does not seem to set reminders or notifications inside Todoist. I get the title and the rest in the in the note, not in the task settings.

I have to admit, this is becoming a nuisance for me, probably the only one. Sure we all have wish items (such as task start dates), but not being able to quickly add a task via voice from my car or when an idea comes to mind bothers me, and something I miss greatly from OmniFocus (which has its own issues and why I'm a paid Todoist customer, but I digress).

It shouldn't even be that hard - There's direct access with Siri in the app, or you could use a CalDAV server to manage it (just need to code the integration).

Yes there are workarounds, and no it is not a showstopper issue. But every time, every day I have to handle these workarounds to jot down tasks or ideas pushes me to look at other tools. And I really don't want to do that.

Please make this a priority.

This will be one of the most convenient features for "in the moment" task creation. I would use this very frequently.

Replied on Aug 01, 2014 - 18:50

I also want Siri integration, that is, let me specify a Reminder list for Todoist to monitor on my iphone/ipad.

Apps have been doing this for years. Please hurry up.

Point made?

My hope is you're doing this slow in that you want to do it right like OmniFocus did - By that, I mean they are the only Siri-integrated app that actually pulls in the location (i.e. if I tell Siri "Remind me when I get to the office to do X" It actually creates a location-based task. That's not meant to be a sales pitch for OF (plenty NOT right with it which is why I'm using Todoist haha), but it seems to be a missed point for the other app devs.

Of course, that's secondary to just being able to get the d*mn reminders in at all :)

Hard to believe, but I think I may use this to replace omnifocus. All it needs is the Siri integration. Will try ITTT workaround in the meantime.

+1 Siri all the way... I may have to go back to OmniFocus just for this alone... :( Or figure out some workaround with IFTTT which seems problematic.

The number one challenge with all to do lists is the effort involved in entering the tasks. Siri would be a quantum leap for Todoist, allowing users to enter a task as quickly as they say it.

Let's face it, To do lists are for busy people who are short on time. Giving them back some time by expediting the task entry process could easily become Todoist's single greatest feature!

This is definitely worth putting up the top of you development priority list folks.

+1 for Siri integration. CalDav server would be awesome (a la Remember The Milk) although auto-import would be okay too (a la Things). Need to have Siri integration to be competitive in this day and age.

I have the six month Premium membership through ProductHunt and would love to renew if this gets added within that time.
