What are some good cross-platform to-do applications?

I already know about all the popular ones like wunderlist and any.do etc. I like the look and feel of any.do, so anything like that. Free would be preferred, looking for an app that I can also use in Windows or through the browser.

    Microsoft To-Do

    An intelligent task management app

    Replaces Wunderlist and should be a strong contender since Microsoft is integrating it into Office.

      This will eventually replace Wunderlist, however a year in, the improvements are just not there for me to have hope. It's AI baked daily recommendations could be nice, but again it needs to allow for more types of task listing.

      I have been using this app for about a year now and it has been quite effective in helping me manage my time. Although some other apps have a better user interface but this product is more comfortable to use, once you get use to it

    Google Keep

    Save your thoughts, wherever you are

    It's not exactly a to do app, but it's a great tool available on mobile, desktop and as a browser extension.

      I've tried this app many times, but really fail to see what people see in it. It fails my basic use cases of even a grocery list, where I need to complete an item, have it hidden, then uncomplete it when it's needed again, easily.

      But then again, Todoist also fails this. Perhaps these are great for one-time use and throw away items. I use AnyList, and would otherwise use Paperless on iOS (or now Ikiru) before either of those.

      If you're a minimalistic approach lover then you should definitely check Wunderlist. It's doesn't eat much resources if you keep it open all the time. Lists of tasks, starring tasks is the best simple and productive way of tasks' prioritization. It also has a great feature of adding a task or searching for a task without going to the main window. Just use a keyboard shortcut for this.

    Dropbox Paper

    Collaboration tool built for teams

    Works beautifully across browsers, iPhone and Android phones. Create simple to-do lists for personal use, shared to-do lists with people from work, and the best part is, if required, you can discuss to-do items very easily with others. If you ever need it to, the to-do list can evolve into much more and become a full working document as well if you're planning something that requires more detail for example. I use individual Paper docs for each type of list. Here are some examples of docs I use for to-do lists: 1. This week's priorities (this is a shared one with the team) 2. Personal priorities 3. TV shows to watch 4. Interesting things to learn more about It's also great that you can share these with anyone and they don't even need to log in or create an account to view it, and they can edit/comment if you want them to with a free Dropbox account. Note re: Wunderlist. It's a great app but it's being shut down by Microsoft unfortunately: https://techcrunch.com/2017/04/1...

      Use Paper to manage technical stuff and my team, and love it. Just the right number of features, document crosslinking and image embedding fits my needs exactly, and works for quick notes or longer documents.

      Its a great tool for starters, For teams I do not recommend. there are lots of apps that do the same, even google docs is more intelligible when collaborating and working with. But we already have OneNote, Evernote, Word Online, with lots of features way ahead Paper.
