    I am looking for "To Do" app suggestions. Any good suggestions for either iPhone or MacBooks?

    I think a good question to start with is, what are you trying to get from your to-do app? Is it a simple to-do/checklist? Do you need multiple lists? Reminders? Do you need project management? Knowing what you need will help others point you in the right direction.

    There are plenty of To-Do apps that are compatible with both iOS and MacOS. Some of the most recommended ones are:

    * Things 3
    * Wunderlist
    * Todoist
    * 2Do
    * Omnifocus 2

    Personally, I use Omnifocus 2, but it's not quite easy to use - or cheap ($40 on iOS, $80 on MacOS, I believe). It's more of a project manager than a simple to-do list, but it's incredibly helpful for my work situation (12 clients I see in different locations, 4 supervisees, additional administrative work).

    Good Point. I will be a little more specific.

    I am looking for a very simple To Do organizer. Like what do I want to do Today, Tomorrow and This Month? Or I am thinking of starting a business.....and want to make a list of things I want to make sure I get done.

    Reminders on iOS and Mac should be good enough

    But reminders does not let you color code for different categories of To Do's, or allow "sub to-do" lists. Reminders is ok, but I want something a little more creative.

    My favourites are 2Do (for proper project organisation) and TaskPaper (for simple, non cluttered to do lists).

    Check out GoodTask. It's available for iOS and MacOS. It uses the default Reminders under the hood but provides a much better interface IMO and adds additional options like subtasks. Here's a link to their website.

    ADD: looks like OP already made a decision on a 3rd party app. Will keep for anyone else that might stumble onto this thread.

    Actually, you can assign different colors to the lists, on Mac and iOS version of the apps. As for sub-lists, I just use the Notes field for that.

    On iOS, I use an app called Paperless. No color assigning, but can assign different icons to represent lists' purpose. Also does not have sub-lists, but does have a note field that, again, I use for sub-lists. Author of this app has a newer replacement for Paperless (more bells and whistles; have not tried).

    Stock Notes app does have capability of make bulleted/numbered lists.
