Simplicity is better, some sort of mobile interface is good.

    Nothing else comes close in my opinion. Custom labels. Projects in projects. Task hierarchy. Location based reminders. Powerful desktop, iOS and Android app. Google Calendar integration. Comments and attachments per list item. The shared list* goes on. *see what i did there

    Taskade is one of the simplest todo list apps, but it's also so much more, and very friendly and fun to use.

    Powering millions of teams to work smarter, together.

    Easy to use and great if you're working with a team.
    I recommend To-Do for Tasks involving multiple stakeholders and lots of intricacies for everything else - Wunderlist.
    I use trello everyday in my life! For my daily tasks and my teams.

    I am surprised this isn't in here yet! But I like workflowy for the combination of simplicity and flexibility. I can use it to manage small projects and write lists for my grocery shopping.

    It turns your whole life into a nested list that you can treat as as things to be complete or just as an organization of your thoughts.

    I'm a big wunderlist fan. This is one Todo list software I stuck to for quite some time. I'm now waiting for the MIcrosoft Todo app by Wunderlist team :-)
    Clean, Simple and gets the basics right. I, too, am waiting for Todo App.

    As a productivity enthusiast who likes to experiment, I've tried almost every major and niche to-do app there is. I 'keep' coming back to this classic by google.

    I also like Google Keep. For me it feels like "Evernote meets Wunderlist". Keep also reminds me of using PostIt notes on my desk.

    It's really simple and non-distracting. It is kind of hard to create to-do's, though...

    Organize all aspects of your life with

    Even though this comes with a detailed calendar view and such, I like seeing my tasks grouped as a simple scrollable list consisting of "Today", "Tomorrow", "Upcoming" and "Someday". Swiping them off to emulate a crossing out action is satisfying too!
    The daily planner is a unique feature and so helpful. I've tried so many apps (Trello, Todoist, Google Keep, Inbox, ClickUp, Notion, Workflowy, and more...) but only actually worked. Mainly because of the planner and re-schedule (postpone) features, which are critical in nowadays busy lifestyle. See

    Its not just a task management app. It has docs - wiki too. very minimal and clear interface with power packed features! If you haven't tried yet, give a try and see the difference.
    Though it is more than a to-do app, I use it for notekeeping on a daily basis and it works amazing for me. Also, do check out to have a look at similar products.

    The world's most open collaborative task manager

    Unlike most collaborative task managers, Sendtask allows you to work with literally anyone. Recipients of tasks don't need to create an account ever. This allows you to manage all your coworkers, freelancers and 3rd party providers in one place. Also offers a very simple and efficient email and Slack integration.
    I use Sendtask to manage all of my actionable info. If something needs to get done, it goes to Sendtask. It has a clean design that allows you to focus. In addition, Sendtask provides some unique functionality - forwarding tasks directly from Email, Slack and Evernote while bringing advanced collaboration features to third-party working relationships. (not just with your team).
    Clean and easy to use. All things to-do in one place. No onboarding for collaborators 😍

    Tried many different tools, but Things is the one that really works for me - it's not so complex, have simple and friendly interface, allows you to organise your task in many ways (choose which suits you best). The latest version has amazing interface - it's already a pleasure just to open the app on a Mac / iPhone. And the latest features include multiple integrations which are really useful.

    I use a combination of Reminders and Google Inbox. This is such a crowded space and it's extremely difficult to differentiate... At the end of the day, sticking to giants like Apple and Google is safe, especially if you care about the company not shutting down soon

    I just spent the $9.99 for the Clear Mac app yesterday. So far, love the gestures and the sound effects (which I am usually not the biggest fan of in apps) are actually pretty cool! Makes me want to add more things to the list and check them off 😊. Impressed so far, really good app rating. There are also free alternatives... but if its something I (plan on) using multiple times a day, I almost prefer to pay for it so it's quality / makes me wanna use it.

    Remember the Milk 2.0

    Complete redesign and new features for the popular to-do app

    SmokieSmokie Does Stuff · Written
    RTM's smart add syntax seems better/more reliable than other systems I've tried (and I've tried *a lot* of them). Their new update adds subtasks and start dates, things I am using far more than I thought I would. Can be used with complex GTD systems, or just remembering to buy the milk. =D

    It's a great choice because the vast number of To Do items come in via email and it makes sense to deal with them at the source.

    Planner, tasks & habits.

    I'm in love with WeDo! I use it with my girlfriend all the time for our grocery list and such. I also use it for work since you can have multiple lists and share the list with whoever you want. Plus it's free so that's a plus haha
