    Out of the many that I've bought and tried, Firetask wins hands down. iPhone and iPad version plus a Mac desktop version. Does about the same thing as Things and Omnifocus, except for one crucial thing that I love... You can mark a task as "in progress" instead of just complete or not.

    Todo is very nice but requires you pay an additional $20 for the desktop version. With springpad it's free and I can access the desktop version at work.

    I have not looked at this, but it does look very nice. Any others have input from using this app?

    I know it's expensive but I took the plunge and love omnifocus. I'm more productive and organized then ever. Siri integration is great too!

    best task management app

    After a couple of years of looking for the 'holy grail' of productivity I have come to the view that there's a range of pretty effective productivity apps out there and that choosing one is essentially a matter of your expectations and working style.

    In my post about what do you want from a to-do app I have tried to cluster apps by likely user requirements, such as the availability of a browser or iPad version, or integration with Evernote. I hope you find it helpful!

    cheers

    Beesy, the best solution for task management.

    In business app, I'd like to recommend a great one which integrated an interesting concept; saving time from your notes. This app, Beesy, generates automatically a ToDo list from a smart note taking. Also, the advantage is you can esasily send your minutes by email. I love testing new business/ productivity apps such as Evernote, Penutilmate, Omnifocus, Awesome but it's the first time I see an app so well done. I recommend Beesy for people which often have meetings ;)
    Great post :)

    I use BusyToDo and it indirectly works with Siri, since it syncs with iCloud. Here is what happens. Make a new task with Siri and it gets placed in the iOS Reminders app and synced to iCloud. Then next time you open BusyToDo it syncs that task from iCloud into BusyToDo. I never even open the Reminders app.

    +1 for OmniFocus

    Not to everyones taste and you really need to give some thought and time to setting up (would suggest having a look at the http://www.asianefficiency.com/ stuff) but works really well once you've adopted the GTD approach.

    They sync between devices (iPad and iPhone) works really well too and you can set-up Apple Reminder app so it takes any Siri created reminders automatically into the OF inbox

    Try Any.Do, it's as beautiful as Clear, much more functional and it's free - so trying it out won't harm you.

    Omnifocus and 2do are the two that I've tried. The latter is best as a to do list and appears to be getting a desktop version alongside a very appealing looking ipad and iphone version. Omnifocus, however, is the big picture productivity app. Just started using it and it really works at making sure everything that needs to get done is in focus. Don't bother with the desktop app - I use the iPad one as a standalone.
