I’ve been trying different digital “task managers” to keep to-do lists over the years, and this semester I’m really liking Wunderlist. It has a viable free plan (I haven’t paid for a commercial plan yet) and if you want you can collaborate with others on your lists. You can also share your lists in a read-only format with others. Previously, my favorite task manager had been Nozbe. Nozbe is also free and GTD-friendly, which means it works with the “Getting Things Done” organizational method espoused by David Allen.
There is also a task manager in Gmail that is OK and handy since it’s built in, if you’re already using Gmail. This 4 minute video is a good intro to Google Tasks.
Wunderlist, Nozbe and Gmail Tasks have free mobile apps you can download and use too. Here are the iOS app links:
