    Taskade 1.0

    Free Collaborative To-Do List and Workspace for Remote Teams

    Noëlie RxEditor-in-chief and Front-End developper · Written
    I'm using the free version of Taskade for my personnal usage. It's really cool because it's a website, but also a chrome extension, and a app for iOS/Android and also a software for mac and windows. So it's really cool to work with ! (All the stuff synchronize together so you can have your to do list everywhere)

    Powering millions of teams to work smarter, together.

    Use it for every project! really good product!
    I use Trello boards & cards for to do lists. You can use the Card Repeater power up for daily tasks that reoccur, which saves time.

    The project management tool that grows with you

    I think Zenkit might be a good alternative. It's simple but with many features. You can use it across devices and it got a free plan. If you need more features you can also use the monthly subscription model.

    Project management in a chat

    Riter is a task management web-based tool which our team is currently working on. A free version of Riter has no limitations on a number of users, projects, functionality, and time limits. You can work with project groups, projects, tasks, and todos within tasks.

    The task management tool, completely redesigned

    I used to Asana for teamwork, but it can be good for personal using.
    If you have a complex model of interaction with the participants and everything is divided into tasks and subtasks, then I recommend Asana. Really cool for a small team. Especially free + you can do the simplest analytics.

    Notion 2.0

    The all-in-one workspace - notes, tasks, wikis, & databases

    Notion really has been the one app to do all the things that I need for it to. Folders, spreadsheets, task management, calendars, distraction-free writing space, and cute emoji icons to give to your folders. They have paid options, but I use this thing religiously on the free plan, and it's definitely fulfilled my needs. Definitely worth trying! I can't praise them enough. ♥

    We built as we were faced with such questions on a daily basis. You can check out the Note keeping category for a to-do app. My personal recommendation would be

    Capture ideas, things to do and places to see

    Big fan of Wunderlist - simple enough to be easy to get started, but has some nice features that you can grow into (shared lists, NLP for due dates, etc.)
  13. If you're already using Slack, you should check out TaskList. It's mobile-friendly and doesn't require you to signup/login to access. Fast and effective.

    Shameless plug 😁 I’ve just launched it, and there’s quite some work to be done until the majority of people can use it effectively. And it’s only for Android for now. But if you’re interested in something fresh, and don’t mind an early product, please do try my app. It will have a subscription plan along a one-time-purchase tier (more features in the former), but if you support the app now, you can get a discount OR buy an option that will unlock all features, including subscription ones, at a flat fee for lifetime.

    You can sign up to Cirkus now for free! You can also get Pro features for life if you refer 3 friends to sign up before the end of 2018. Sounds like it could be just what you need.

    Makers by Product Hunt

    A place for Makers to share, connect, and reach their goals

    It is supposed to be for Makers but if most of your to-do needs can be shared this is the perfect tool. Also, they have no subscription model as of now. Its a brilliant to-do tool disguised as a community for DIYers and Makers.

    I am using Nuclino for task management. It's a beautiful, lightweight and flexible tool. What I like most is that it's intuitive and instantly works without any setup or configurations. You can customize workspaces and boards to fit your workflows and processes.

    Crocagile is great if you're trying to simplify from Jira/Slack. It's month-to-month per-user subscription.

    Nextcloud has apps for kanban boards (deck) and tasks (tasks). It's all free but you host it yourself so you might want to pay $5/month to digitalocean for a vps.
