Default Best ToDo List/Reminder

What is your favorite ToDo List/Reminder App?

I would ideally like something which....
  • Easily takes a to-do list
  • Has reminder/alarm functions
  • Synchs with my calender
I was using my google calender, but then if I dismissed an event I lost my to do list.

Recommendations?

I use Astrid, it doesn't sync with the calender, but it does sync with rememberthemilk.com, sends reminders, alarms, etc. It keeps closed tasks as long as you want, and is very easy to enter tasks either on the phone or via the web at rememberthemilk.com.

Oops, it can add the task to the calender, there is a checkbox in the task dates tab that allows you to add it to the calender.

G Tasks syncs with Google Calendar and has been very reliable for me of late.

I have Astrid and it's good, but I also use Note Me. It's a nice note taker and you can set reminder alarms.

ToDo Q: alarms by schedule and/or location; gCal friendly (toss to gCal per item, changes flow thru)

Got To Do: todo on steroids; sync with ToodleDo.com, use iCal to then sync with gCal

Note Everything Pro: quick voice/text notes to me, with (optional) status bar alarms (no gcal sync)

Remember the Milk (official app), it has the most options (including sharing) and cleanest interface by far. Unfortunately Astrid does not play nicely with RTM's lists and tags.

Unfortunately I haven't found one to do everything I'd like it to, but I'm currently comparing Astrid and Got To Do for what you're asking. Astrid is simpler but I'm leaning towards Got To Do for task list/to do.

Status Notes and Notification Notes (I don't know which came first but one is definitely a rip of the other, wow they are similar) because I kind of like the different icons all in the notification bar since I generally use it a lot to go to new emails, etc.

Note Everything and Note Me. Both seem useful for taking notes, haven't evaluated them long enough to make a decision.

I also have OI Shopping List, well, for shopping lists (grocery).

It'd be nice if there was one that did all of the above...

Default Any task/reminder program with "Repeat until" a certain date?

Is there any program for android that can program repeat weekly reminders that stop on a certain date? I'm coming from Palm OS where I could create a task and set an alarm to go off at 2pm every Saturday until July 15, 2010. I have lots of tasks like that and Astrid has such a time-consuming interface to set up a task, I don't want to have to set up 4 identical tasks for each consecutive week. The alternative in Astrid is to have the task repeat every week and then set a separate task to remind me to end the repeat or delete the task on July 15. Any suggestions?

I'm still not sold on any of these.
I love RTM and used it on my PC for a while now.
I don't really feel like paying that much for their options.

My big thing is to be able to set tasks that repeat daily or weekly, that when I mark them done for that day, they don't disappear as if I've done all the tasks, in the future even.

Am I missing it on the others?

Not enough good reviews on astrid, either on the site or the marketplace.
GTD doesn't strike me as the one.

Currently I'm using Gtasks for Android.
I like it, but I don't like the fact I mentioned above about the repeating tasks.
Unless... I'm doing something wrong.

Astrid for me. The Astrid widget is a bit small for me though, so I use Android Agenda which syncs nicely with Astrid.

I'm using Nudnick it interacts with the default calendar and gives you separate reminders.

I've been using it for ages, the dev is very responsive and helpful too:

https://market.android.com/details?id=amProgz.nudnik.full&feature=search_resu lt

Link is for full version but there is a lite with less features I believe.

I used to use Google Tasks Organiser Lite, but given the lack of features in Google Tasks, I'm trying the 14-day free trial of Ultimate To-Do List, which syncs with Toodledo.com (best To-Do list online IMO). However, I did love the widget on GTO Lite, it could flick between different folders with a simple arrow press.

Does anyone know of an app that syncs with Toodledo AND puts due date tasks into a calendar? Got to do is no longer available, I think I read somewhere that the developer isn't doing it anymore.

I'm also looking for something FREE that'll do quickfire reminder data entry. I just tried a couple of the suggestions above:
- Got To Do - couldn't get it to give an audible reminder,
- RTM - didn't realise that it wasn't free
- Astrid - cumbersome to enter the date/time for the reminder.

I just want to open a form, enter a 1-line description, date and time for the audible reminder all on the same page, and save it.

To save me trialling a load more apps, does anyone know of one that'll give me the simple, one-hit data entry of reminders that I'm looking for?

I use "ColorNote" for my note taking and check list. It works really well and simple to use. You can create as many notes, post-its, as you like. You can create a check list to use over and over again. (When a reminder has passed, your notes remain.) Cross out items with a press and resort the list, so only unchecked items are at the top. Set up a variety of different reminders: time alarm, all day, pin to status bar and repetition. Has 9 different color post-it notes to choose from. Can place single notes on home screen as a widget, which will display the number of items not checked, for check list. You can archive notes and check list, to clear out work space. There is a calendar, in the app, that places all reminders on it, but it doesn't sync to google calendar. You can password protect notes and check list.

I use ToDo Task Manager Pro. There is a free version as well and they both handle repeat tasks gracefully.

ReQall was awesome on my BlackBerry and just as good on the Android but a big +1 on ColorNote Notepad. I am just figging the simplicity for the simpler list things.

Default Try BHive Google Tasks

I just switched over from BlackBerry where I was using BHive Tasks (the most popular one for BB). I was happy to see that there is now an Android version that is specially designed to work with Google Tasks. So far it's been working great... the only one I found that works really well with Google Tasks.

"Tasks" in Gmail/Calendar works for me. mail.google.com/tasks/android?pli=1 gets you straight there on a phone. They show up in the lower right of a gmail page and the upper right of a calendar page, and full screen on a phone. Can make notes or checklists... all synced to your Google account.

Seems like one application has heed your call.

I just tried Tasks N Todos since it is newly released in the market. The UI feels good and its basic features meet your requirements. You can check that out here https://market.android.com/details?id=com.handyapps.tasksntodos

I'm previously using Astrid, not the best though.

I just installed Tasks N Todos (on my HTC Thunderbolt) and unfortunately the repeat setting is not versatile enough to repeat a task on the 1st of every month. It apparently treats the term month as '30' days regardless.

That's strange. My phone don't have that issue though. You might want to contact their support for assistance.

I've never been one to actively use a task list. I'm trying any.do right now, but I only have one item on it.

I'll see how any.do works for me.

I tried color notes as well. In my previous Nokia phone whenever I set a reminder that would flash on the main screen/home screen. But with the android phone I find that it flashes only on the top of the mobile screen which I assume is the notification bar. Is there any reminder app which flashes on the complete screen or more than the notification bar and also I need a reminder app which has the feature wherein the reminder will go away only after we dismiss. I found this feature available only in Astrid.

I've been using Ultimate To-Do List for a long time now. Syncs easily w/Toodledo.com, has a tablet version, exceptionally configurable, updated regularly, and the developer participates in a user feedback forum. Homepage here.

Default Need a very automated reminder system

As a manager, it would be nice to have a reminder app in which I could write a note to remind myself to talk to one of my employees about and based on the employee name I input, it would know what day and time I need to be reminded. Meaning, I would like an automated alarms system based on the content of a note and alarm rules that I set ahead of time.

Hi phenomc, you might find the ability to do something similar using a combination of Ultimate To-Do List and the Toodledo service. I don't remember specifics, but I'm pretty sure Toodledo will accept specially formatted emails to automatically create tasks, which could have customizable alarms. Also the alarms can take a few different forms: email notifications, SMS texts, popups.

And if you combined the above with the sophisticated Tasker app, you could have all sorts of exotic automatic processing happening.

I feel like an idiot, but I like using Out of Milk. For To Do and groceries.

Wunderlist for me. Works well, and syncs across multiple platforms. It's on my iPad, my Exhibit II, my wife's DroidX, our notebooks, our work computers, her Nook Color (via web interface). It was actually the prime mover in my getting the Exhibit II.

Good find coyote1. Multi-platform is a must for me: No matter how slick a mobile version is, I still find it a lot easier to manage and swap information between applications on my desktop PC. So as long as it all syncs properly, I'm good to go.

Wunderlist product page and at the Android Market.

I've been using Gtask by dato for a couple of months, then tried out a different bunch of apps, and eventually came back because of the clear widget, intuitive folder display on widget with colours, uncluttered but detailed notifications and flawless sync with Tasks in the google pages.

It would really be perfect for me, and I would gladly pay for the full version, if I could enter 'call contact' reminders that would make the call with one tap straight from the notification. Nokia s40 could do that, I can't understand why smartphones don't, the nokia e5 couldn't neither.

Any ideas?

Another vote for remember the milk. I like the way I can enter the task name, date, time, tags, all on one line and have it figure it out. No need to scroll down through a list and check off different things.

I just went through such a search & opted for Pro Do as the best for MY needs. It does what you're looking for. I used it for a very short time before I purchased the paid version, as I wanted the extra features & to support the developer. I especially like it for the way it works with Sub Tasks, which to me is better than all the rests. I didn't like Astrid at all. Gtasks was my 2nd favourite but I found it lacking in some areas & didn't really like the UI.

For Notes or quick item lists, I like Note Everything. I use rShopping for Grocery Lists.
