Which Task Manager App Do You Recommend?

Good Questions

Q: I recently entered the 21st century, through the purchase of an iPhone. It's been terrific to have, and I find it most useful, but I'm having some trouble in my search for a certain app. I need a task manager, you see, and there are too many choices!

I've used "Things" on my iMac, and I quite like it. It has an iPhone companion, which might be nice for the sake of consistency, but it's also a bit more expensive than some other task managers out there, and apparently has some syncing issues, so I'm still on the fence.

Can you or the Unplggd community help me to determine which task manager is best to buy for my new phone?

Editor - At $4.99 Zenbe Lists is a simple task manager for iOS, but it allows for multiple lists with due dates and completion accounts. It also syncs to your web accounts and emailing your list is super easy using the app.

Wunderlist is a cloud enabled task manager, so you can share and collaborate with others when needed. Push notification and email reminders can help you stay on track, and we like the simple UI (there's 12 backgrounds to choose from if you don't like the faux bois look).

But our favorite is actually an app developed by SwissMiss, aka Tina Roth Eisenberg, called TeuxDeux . It's bare bones, but in a good way that makes task management easy at a glance and free:

  • week overview
  • check off, delete, or move tasks
  • someday bucket
  • jump to a date in the future
  • automatic rollover of unchecked tasks
  • edit existing tasks
  • sync with mobile version (iPhone app)
  • Multiple accounts (iPhone app only)
