I'm a big fan of the To Do list. I currently use TeuxDeux [1] because I love how simple it is.

What is your favorite To Do list web app?

Remember the Milk [1] is my favourite.


(1) I use it every day. Try Astrid ( if you have an Android Phone. - Aaron
(1) The RTM Android app is great too; it understands things like "tom" for a due date of tomorrow, or "next tues", or "!1" for priority 1. - Ben Straub
You can also add it as a side gadget to your GMail. - ptomato

Gmail has task integrated into it [1].

While it lacks the features of some of the dedicated task management sites, gmail wins for me because tasks are so cleanly integrated with a tool I use heavily day to day.


(8) and you can access it out of gmail using this URL - Amr ElGarhy
(3) The gmail tasks app is too primitive for my taste. - ripper234
Doesn't even integrate with Google Calendar! - Casebash
(1) @Casebash - Actually, it does integrate very nicely with Gcal. - Herb Caudill
(1) There's a canvas view that gives you a little more elbow room and a more app-like feel. It's at or . - Herb Caudill

Toodledo [1] is another good web app. It supports also integration with IPhone and IPad using a priced app.

Here it is a features comparison chart [2] (provided by them).


(1) I like ToodleDo .. I like being able to email tasks to it and get due date and priority. The iPhone app works well too! - tomjedrz
(1) Will also integrate with Android devices using Got To Do - gnarf
And freeware ToodledoSync application allows you to synchronize tasks between Outlook and Toodledo - perv
I was an Omnifocus user until I started a job where I used Ubuntu on the desktop. I tried switching to RTM a few times, but Toodledo was flexible enough for me to finally make the move away from Omnifocus. - Ryan Olson

Check out Nirvana [1]

I've been beta testing it as a clean, simple, yet powerful to-do to manage my teams workload. Closed beta, but fairly easy to get in ... I'd recommend it.

I share your un-healthy love of lists.

I've tried Notational Velocity [1], Nottingham [2] (both synced to the web via Simplenote [3]) Apple Mail, Outlook Google Docs [4], etc, etc.

But by far the best solution I've found is simple, plain text (or Markdown [5]) files, synced to the web via Dropbox [6] and edited on the web via Droptext [7] (App store link).

Syncing a file based list is much better than using a pure web/iPhone app, as you can also work on the files offline. Moreover, you can use your favourite text-editor to edit and organise your lists.

(It's a popular question this - the same question has been asked [8] on


I just wish the Dropbox iPhone app had a simple text editor in it. That would probably be all I used. - moioci
moioci, see the new info above about 'Droptext' - Jon Hadley

I am a big fan of 37signals Ta-Da Lists [1] there is also a handy iPhone app as well! It is also 100% free.


[+2] [2010-07-14 21:47:38] community_owned good interface, good design

Remember the Milk [1] is my favorite by far, but the only other one I have really used is Google's in Gmail. I started using RTM when it started and I have never needed another solution.


[+2] [2010-07-08 10:26:04] Tal Galili

I use ToDoList [1] with dropbox. (after testing many systems...)


[+1] [2010-07-08 06:45:04] Michael Pakhantsov

I use Producteev [1], its very fast and well designed, have several workspaces, support tags, task delegation. Allow create you task mostly from everywhere, by using email, icq, etc. Application allow sync with google calendar. Very nice web application with extremely simple and beautiful interface.

You should check, especially if you're a programmer. It has a unique approach of representing a single todo list in two ways: sorted by priority and structured as a tree - all on the same screen. Very convenient.

A couple of low tech suggestions.

  • Use an email folder in your email client.
  • Text file saved in a Dropbox.

I use Reminder Fox [1] Add-on of firefox. Its pretty good.


Not a web app though! - pramodc84
[+1] [2010-08-28 00:56:22] community_owned

Try the new [1]. It's html5 + css3 and pretty well designed.

I'm using Weekis [1] and liking it a lot. It's minimal and unobtrusive.

I've been using Vitalist [1].

How has reqall [1] not made this list? You can add a todo item via email, im, text message, voice, and they have pretty good input recognition to pick up on keywords, times and dates from your items to organize them as you go without you having to manually configure when the item is due.

Im also an TeuxDeux fan, but I still think you should check out its great and have a lot of features but still very clean and simple.

tadalist [1] from 37 signals is my favorite

ManyMoon [1] is an oddly-named, full-featured single- or multi-user (collaborative) task system. Add tasks, assign to users, send emails of tasks, attach google docs, add comments, tags, statuses, etc.

It also has integration with GoogleApps, if you're using a hosted gmail solution. If you're not, well, then. Start up tasks the old fashioned way.

It's the best free collaborative task system I've found. I probably prefer the uncluttered interface of Basecamp, but you can't get that for free.

I've used Good Todo [1] by Mark Hurst, it's pretty good.


[0] [2010-07-08 13:32:35] Matt Katz

I'm using the amazing Tracks [1] - open source, aGPL, ruby on rails, easy to extend and comes with an api. I used the api to knock up a quick email to tracks bridge [2]...

For just quick notes and todos while I'm working in a project context on the command line I use ditz [3].


Note there's a hosted version of Tracks at - moioci

Nozbe [1] is my favorite way to Get Things Done [2].


Can you comment on why it is your favorite compared to the others? - Sridhar Ratnakumar
Ouch, why the -1. I really do like them :| - Jeff Davis
Mostly because it is extremely easy to use to just throw tasks in there. But when I want to organize my tasks, I can do it either by context or by project. It make sense to me and it's fun to use. - Jeff Davis

Check out Pivotal Tracker [1] - its really geared around iterative design but you can use it for many things. It has slick real-time collaboration, a killer interface and is completely free.


[0] [2010-07-09 07:42:54] ripper234

I use Evernote [1] with a todo tag. Less than ideal, but I somehow like it better than Remember The Milk and use it to store my non-todo notes already.


[0] [2010-07-07 22:26:14] community_owned

I've been using Hiveminder [1] for years now. I've tried most of the popular TO DO apps out there, but I keep coming back to Hiveminder. Its "Braindump" box lets me enter a bunch of tasks quickly, and the "Task Review" process helps me prioritize and categorize my tasks inbox easily. The user interface is very clean and fast. There's also an iPhone app (iMinder). I think Hiveminder is a great undiscovered gem.

Checkvist [1] is nice and simple and you can use your keyboard which really speeds things up. It's almost as easy to use as pen and paper.


[0] [2010-07-07 23:18:34] Vortico

Paprika [1] is nice and simple with good usability, and it integrates plaintext notes with a todo list and tags. It's useful for storing information along with the todo list.


[0] [2010-07-08 00:16:14] Nick Gerakines

I use DropBox [1] and TodoPaper [2].

37signals BackPack [1] is like a beefier version of their Ta-Da Lists [2] that Jeff Epstein recommended. It adds collaboration, notes, multiple pages, and a few other features.


[0] [2010-07-08 03:34:03] Luke Lowrey

I like Springpad [1]. Has some todo list like functionality but is really more like an online notebook. It adds some really useful extra information to the stuff you put in it.


[0] [2010-07-08 03:56:41] GoodEnough

I've recently switched to the more simple, yet powerful, [1]. is very lightweight and user friendly. It's missing a few nice-to-have features, but overall it's my favorite Todo app.
