    Todoist

    Organize your life. Then go enjoy it.

    There is not a better app that is all platform friendly. Easy to use, simple UI, loaded with features.

    I totally agree with John, especially if you need a Google Calendar integration.

    Wunderlist

    Capture ideas, things to do and places to see

    pherkandesigner | engineer | aeuoeu · Written
    Wunderlist was my go-to to-do app for a long time. But it really depends on what you're going to use it for. If it's for a small company, this is a great app. Just for yourself: I would recommend the standard Reminders application by Apple (if you're on iOS/macOS etc by all means).

    Things 3.0

    Complete revamp of the original, award-winning task manager

    Tal ShresthaMaking things people love 🌹 · Edited
    Offline first, native first, seamless sync, efficient UX. I've been using it for many, many years. If I'm not mistaken Things is the first app to introduce the dynamic 'today' list, which many have copied. v3.0 adds native reminders support as well. Calendar is integrated with separation (as calendar events are _not_ TODO items). It's stitched natively to every platform and every detail and pixel has been handled with care.

    It's got a high price point, especially across multiple platforms, but it's so elegant and pleasant to use — I dropped Wunderlist in favor of Things (though I do miss commenting and attachments).

    I switched from Clear to Things this year. It's an extremely well designed app that oozes beauty, but also treads a very careful line between simplicity and advanced functionality. So far, it does everything I need, and just enough more that I will not hit any restraints for the foreseeable future. The calendar integration is hugely helpful for being the one place I check to map out my day every morning.

    Don't need any other app. MacOS and iOS have a beautiful notes app. You can also create to-do lists.

    Yep. I've always thought having a dedicated app for to-do lists is overkill when Notes is already so powerful. Just select the checklist icon. You can format things however you like with headings, bold text, etc.; and it even has collaborative features in case you want to share to-dos. I've tried apps like Todolist, Wunderlist, Any.do, and-the-like. I don't miss any of the additional features they offered.

    IDK why it wasn't there on this list... It works on all platforms, syncs effortlessly and it's integrated with Android reminders, so Google Now picks them up!

    Being able to create to-do lists or Trello-style kanban boards makes Asana super adaptable for different kinds of projects.

    "My Day" is hands down one of the most useful features of any to-do app ever (for me at least)

    Quire based on a few key features: 1. Three-state task model 'to do' (open), 'in progress', and 'completed', with a long list of other metadata, like due dates, task assignment, comments, file attachments, etc. 2. Markdown support in task descriptions and comments 3. Organizations/Projects/Tasks -- invite different groups of people to organizations, share projects in organizations either publicly or by invitation, tasks are defined in projects 4. task lists -- tasks can be dragged, dropped, subtasked 5. Google calendar integration -- only one-way from quire to calendar I hear they are working on Slack integration

    I've been using The Hit List for years since I got in a MacHeist bundle. The best rule in To-Do List management is to have 1 list for your professional life and 1 list for your personal life. Then, each day you pull from each of those master lists to come up with what to do each day. The Hit List lets me do that with finesse, dragging and dropping items from one list to another, creating hierarchies, start dates and end dates. In has a timer functionality too, but I haven't used it

    WeDo

    Planner, tasks & habits.

    Spencer P Shulem made this product
    Little bias here, but everyone one our team is maniacal about making a great (minimal) experience. It does the basics great, but also offers the most "pro" features free. We also have some fun paid features: emoji's, themes, time estimating. We're constantly listening to our users, and on Android we just came out of beta with a beautiful new redesign. Our iPhone/iPad app is solid, clean, simple. We think you'll love it :)

    Workflowy

    Turn your entire life into a list.

    This is my favourite. The one I have been using for so many years, and it is funny how WorkFlowy without much update still manages to be the best tool for to-dos and lists of any kind.

    Gluru

    Google Now for your business content

    If you are looking for a to-do list for professional purposes, and kind of a guy who receives many emails etc, I highly recommend Gluru. It has a state of art AI, that scans through your emails, understand what you need to do, and suggests tasks with (currently limited set of) actions; so don't only keep a to-do list but also complete your tasks.
