Does anyone know the best Task manager (like Culture Coded's Things) that works on OS X, the iPhone, and can sync between the two over the air using MobileMe or some other type of service.

Does such a dream world exist? Culture Coded ignores its users requests for OTA sync and implemented wifi sync which is a total PITA. If you forget to open the app up in the morning (when your sleepy) and sync it manually then you wont have up to date two dos.

Anyone have a killer app they can recommend? It would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Best? That is pretty subjective, but ....

An old post - and a new reply .....
EasyTask from Orion works on both iPhone and Mac, as well as Windows, and syncs. $20 and has a multiperson version that allows project collaboration and task coordination ($50/3 users).

Priority Matrix uses the Covey's 7 habits First Things First concept of a 4 quadrant model. $20 Mac, free on iPhone/iPad

NotifyMe is well reviewed, and runs on Mac, iPhone, and iPad. The products are not free ($16,$5, $4), but the sync service is.

Outlook/Mac works for this as well.

There are numerous others, but these are inexpensive (but not free).

iCal and Reminders also works, using iCloud as the intermediary

There is a number of solutions at Mac App Store (search for todo there), but almost all of them cost "$20-$80 for Mac OS version, $5-$10 for iPhone version, plus $5-$10 for iPad version". And, some also charge monthly for using their cloud service.
