What a jungle. Those apps range from free to about $100, from anemic to overwhelming. For most of us, all we want is a decent todo list app that syncs Mac to iPhone to iPad. Apple’s Reminders and Notes and Stickies are nice and all, and certainly priced right, but here’s something much better.
Think of the offspring from a marriage of Stickies and Reminders. That’s To-do Lists, for OS X and iOS devices. It’s so advanced you already know how to use it.
Take a look.
To-do Lists looks a bit like a mashup of Stickies and Reminders. It lives in the Mac’s Menubar so it’s accessible from any app. Create as many todo list items you need in multiple categories, and make them different from one another by screen placement and color.
This app is so smart it can use either iCloud or Dropbox to sync between devices, and it can grab todo lists from Calendar. Adding items is a click to the Menubar. To finish up an item on the todo list, click the item’s checkbox.
To-do Lists is handy, too. Lists can be rolled up, made to float, or become transparent, and you control color, images, text fonts and appearance. It even imports and exports todo list items and feature rich-text editing (like a mini-word processor) and opens links embedded into the list.
If all you need is a simple set of lists that are easy to create and delete and show up on all your Apple devices, this is the baby with an iPhone version, too.
