Todo lists are a dime a dozen. With the large number of reminder apps, task managers, and todo list apps, a dime might be a little on the high side. If you’re pining for a simple, straightforward, but highly usable todo list app for your Mac, here it is. This one is cleverly named To-do Lists. If Reminders and Calendar just don’t do it for you, but you don’t really need the complexity of a project manager, To-do Lists can do the deed.
This may be the most visually satisfying and instantly understood todo list apps you’ll run into.
See? To-do Lists looks like Stickies on steroids, instantly familiar, quickly usable. Click to create a new todo item. Click to remove when done. It even synchronizes the lists with Calendar and Reminder items, and backs up and syncs between devices using iCloud or Dropbox.
Even better, there’s also an iPhone and iPad version of To-do Lists called To-do Lists Mobile, and it works much the same way, but also synchronizes todo items back to the Mac.
Todo lists are easily printed or emailed. Use drag and drop to create a new todo item from a web page, file, document, even an email message. It features easy options for background color, text color, and fonts.
Both the OS X and iOS versions of To-do Lists keep it simple and uncluttered and don’t try to do too much. For simplicity’s sake it’s hard not to like the Stickies look. What could be easier. These inexpensive apps get a lot of four and five star reviews because they’re instantly usable.
