    Been using Wunderlist for so long now, I have used it on Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, ... It just works, and for personal basic use free too. Truth is, it is so awesome I never even bothered to try out any other platforms.

    I've been using Wunderlist for over 4 years now and it's the best. Syncs flawlessly across devices, has just the right amount of features (reminders, ability to share / create collaborative lists, etc), and just frickin WORKS. I've tried a few others, including making checklists in my #1 note-taking love, Evernote, but Wunderlist is the best option that I've found.

    I swapped from Todoist to Wunderlist recently - Wunderlist helps me get more done. It doesn't feel as stressful compared to Todoist - maybe the colors?

    Things is expensive, but totally worth it. Use it every day on my Watch, iPhone, and iPad and it's the best I've found. Its system of Inbox + Today, Upcoming, Anytime, and Someday make it easy to focus just on what's relevant now or what's coming up. And the design is just amazing.

    The notes app for creative work

    John Pooley made this product
    Typical to-do lists are rigid and inflexible. Milanote lets you add or remove structure, attach images and other media, and share progress with your team. No iOS or Android native apps yet, but cross-platform support through web browser.

    I've been looking for a good to-do list app for a while. I've tried Todoist, Wunderlist,, and Swipes, but none of them had quite what I was looking for (Swipes was the closest). I wanted a tool that was quick, had a nice UI, and was free. I recently switched from Swipes to WeDo, and I'm really liking it so far. The UI is polished and uncluttered, and has a lot of features for free, like attachments and group lists. I just use it personally, though, and it's hitting all of my requirements.
    WeDo is simple and straightforward, it helps me to spend less time in the to-do list and getting more done :) Really clean UI, no distractions, no stress.

    An intelligent task management app

    Though still very rudimentary, I find this tool to be very easy to use. It still lacks many features, but its simplicity is what makes it so enjoyable to use. That and the fact that is is free, often upgrades, and easily synchronized across all machines.

    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.
