    Just a fun topic, maybe will encourage discussion of to-do list apps in a different way.

    For my main to-do list, I use Google Tasks on PC which syncs with

    Except eating haggis and drinking whisky, at least that's what I've heard about people from Scotland :D

    I use S Planner because it seems to be the only app to display Exchange tasks in its widget...

    I use Teamwork PM to manage all my projects so my to-do lists are there. I primarily use it on my desktop and have the Android app on my tablet and smartphone so I can see my tasks from anywhere.

    I use Evernote (I am an Evernote junkie) to capture any ideas, thoughts etc.

    So judging by resonse so far, I am alone is using multiple to-do programs/applications? I'm a little surprised at that. I was expecting others adopt similar approach as me (multiple to-do programs) because there is no one perfect to-do app for all purposes... each has it's strength and area where it makes sense.

    Re: Evernote - that is my next planned topic - "how many apps do you use to capture information in your life". My sense is I have the right number of to-do apps to suit my own personal style and work effectively, but way too many different ways to capture info, so finding info when I need it is not so straightforward.

    What should be the benefit of multiple apps doing one and the same purpose?

    See my posts above for understanding of my reasons. I'm not saying others should....just surprised there are not more that find themselves in same boat as me.

    I do try new apps from time to time, but I choose only one app to keep my tasks and todo lists in. Otherwise, I would have to check multiple places.

    Since I teach time management for a living, that would just be wrong! :)

    I use Any.Do for basic to-dos per day (like drink meds, buy this, buy that, etc). Mainly stuff that I need nagging for (because the app has an unclearable notification). The calendar gets the usual schedules and homeworks and meetings and stuff.
