We’ve just closed our giveaway, and would like to say Congrats to our winners: Sigita, keyfob, Lukas, jargonis, Mihir, frettafrunz, Shahmir, and Tom. If you didn’t win, don’t forget to hurry and purchase a Todoist Pro subscription for $13.99 before the sale ends!

If you’re looking for a great way to get your tasks done, on your desktop, mobile, or from the web, one of the best apps you could choose is Todoist. Its beautifully designed, and its web app works nice enough that it could be mistaken for a native app. We’ve loved it when we’ve reviewed Todoist, and are sure you’ll love it too.

You can get started with Todoist for free, but to get the most out of it you’ll want a premium account, which for $29/year gives you task searching, notes and file uploads, calendar sync, charts to help you track your productivity and more. Our friends at StackSocial are running a special this week where you can get Todoist Premium for just $13.99 — a great deal. But guess what’s even better? We’ve got 8 one-year accounts to giveaway to our readers for free!

All you’ve got to do to enter our giveaway is leave a comment below letting us know how you’ll put Todoist to use in your work and life — then share the giveaway post on your favorite social networks and leave another comment with a link to your post for an extra entry. Best of all, if you go ahead and buy the discounted Todoist Premium right now and then happen to win, you’ll get your payment refunded, so you won’t lose either way!

Hurry and get your entry in; we’re closing the giveaway on Monday, September 2nd!

App Stores are overflowing with native apps for the web apps we’ve grown to love: Facebook, Gmail, Evernote, Dropbox, WordPress, and more. It’s sometimes hard to choose between using a native app for a web service, and just opening it in another tab. Many of us end up downloading native apps for some of our web apps, as we found in this week’s poll, but sometimes, it’s just better to use the web app.

That’s what Mac.AppStorm writer Reid Leamaster found with his favorite task management app, Todoist. It’s a great todo list app that’s gotten even better since our last review, and he’s come to rely on it for his to-dos. The Todoist team recently made a new Mac app, but he found that the original web app was more powerful, and switched back to using it in Flow, an app-specific browser for the Mac.

Now there’s a nice new Mac app … wait, that’s a web app?!?

Head over to Mac.AppStorm to see how Reid uses Fluid to make Todoist’s web app even better, and if you have a Mac, be sure to try out using Fluid to turn web apps into native-like apps. On a PC, you can do much the same with Chrome’s Application Shortcuts.
