Comparison of Online ‘To-Do List’ services

Check out our round up of online to do lists and task management services.

There are task manager apps out there. There are those that focus on features and provide pretty much every possible feature users wish for and those that take minimalist approach and focus only on a few essential features.

I’ve recently finished the project that will replace Wallnote (also mine) in a couple of months’ time. Perhaps you could check it out and add it to this comprehensive list?

@Alex
it’s quite cool. It’s listed now

Tweeto

Hey thanks for adding tweeto to your list. We’re constantly adding new features and would love to hear peoples comments and suggestions.

http://www.dailytodo.net offers a unique feature not offered by the others. It lets you manage daily, weekly and monthly tasks. That is, tasks that need to be performed on a regular basis.

Venkat

Wondering if you could maybe add ZoToDo to your list… it still provides on pretty basic functionality but it’s good for Daily To Do lists… here’s a link: Daily To Do Lists

And don’t forget about our brand new Swift To-Do List Online (swifttodolist.com) – it has attractive design, it’s superb easy to use and it is actually quite powerful, serving both individuals and small teams :-)

Checkout Swift To-Do List Online also – it’s brand new web 2.0 service with attractive design, superb easy and fun to use, with task sharing.

Jenny

Wipee List should be included on here, discovered it through your over post.

Andrew

What about offline ones? I’ve recently released one that should cope with the task. Please check sites.google.com/site/rocketdm, you might wish to add it to your list.

Best wishes,

Andrew

Vladimir

Check this out – http://www.tobeedo.com/, this is the best one, new and google-style :)

Just wrote a neat one for Facebook:

Mandey

This is a wonderful list… but makes it AWFULLY hard to choose one. Can someone reccomend me which is the best, preferabbly with RSS support…

Saa

doitdoitdone.com/ – I really like this one s2

James

As a project manager where most of my day is spent managing lots of ‘to do lists’ I use a new site called ‘orgu’ which is really simple to use, very quick and looks kind of funky…

orgu.co.uk

Much prefer it to RememberTheMilk which is overly engineered for most people’s use, and far too common now.
