import and export?
Where are the controls to import tasks via csv, xml, etc.? I have over 100 tasks in Astrid and entering them by hand is a deal-breaker. Similarly, how would I export my tasks if I decide to switch from todoist to something else?
I'm not willing to place my data for such a critical part of my success somewhere I can't easily get my data in, or back out again.
I can't be the first person to have this problem. To my fellow users - how are you handling this?

I buy Todoist in April but today problem not resolve and i bot use Todoist becouse it's impossible import Google Calendar in Todoist.
Why don't resolve problem and motivation is always: "unfortunately, there is no import/export feature in Todoist right now, but we will certainly consider adding it in the future."
This problem not specify in Product, why?
we are constantly working on many different features and mobile apps and will certainly consider adding an import/export feature in the future. For now, it is possible to synchronize your tasks with Google Calendar or any other calendar software supporting the iCal feed. It's not possible to import tasks into Todoist, though.

I had similar problem - I'd like to move from Astrid to sth else, at the beginning I've chosen Wunderlist, but it wasn't perfect so I'll try for a while Todoist.
To move all tasks from Wunderlist to Todoist I've written really simple python script reading Wunderlist's JSON dump and adding new projects/tasks via Todoist's API - https://gist.github.com/kbl/5970131

If I can't import my tasks, I can't use Todoist. Too bad. Looked promising.

Agreed same here, too bad. Task import is very important
