It is quite understandable that not all productivity apps will work for everyone.
You might add a list of tasks to an app, tell yourself you'll use it, and then forget to open the app again. Instead, you might use a sticky note to keep track of your tasks. This means the app did not work for you. You should not feel guilty about using a different system that works for you.
Everyone envisions the ideal, productive version of themselves. That imaginary self uses a to-do list app.
Productivity blogs have done a great job of branding themselves as essential. These apps can be helpful, but if they don't work for you, that's ok.
Productivity is a personal thing, and what works for other people might not work for you. That's not embarrassing. Use the tool that works best for you.
Many productive people use sticky notes to keep track of tasks. Other people use paper as the ultimate productivity tool. Some even use their inbox as a to-do list.
