    I am currently using "Priorities" and it is my favorite app. I has everything I need and want in a to do app. I am worried it will not be updated anymore by the developers, last time was July 2015, and they will not answer emails. Best feature is every month I have a list of recurring tasks to do, with Priorities I copy a template list I made and have a new list to work with, the next month, same thing. Anyone know another app I can try?

    I used to recommend Clear app and Things app, but their development is weird. It seems they are being phased out or no longer really developed. And things is still pretty expensive. Clear also doesn't seem to do the features you're asking for.

    Consider Todoist.
    Depending on what you need, perhaps the free version is already sufficient.
    As for your recurring project, I can recommend this video by Carl Pullein
    Also this one

    I would recommend 2Do. It's on iOS, the Mac, and as far as I can tell, the only good one on Android. So if you decide to switch to Android, 2Do is there.

    I've heard a lot of great things about 2Do. See also the great review from MacStories on it.

    If you plan on staying with iOS forever, I can also recommend Things, Omnifocus, and Firetask. They all have iPhone and iPad and OS X versions and are all fantastic. Kinda pricey for the desktop versions, but each is very capable.

    Across all platforms and browser/email plugins

    Im a huge fan of Todoist as well. If you like more "project based" approaches, you may want to check out Trello as well.

    I like these apps because there are ubiquitous and usable on just about every platform out there (I have a Mac at home but have to use a PC for work - godsend that I can use them across the spectrum.)

    Another vote for Todoist, absolutely bloody love it. I literally run my life out it. It syncs across all devices, so at work I have it open all the time, but if I'm away from my desk and think of something I need to do, I just add it on my phone. I use the projects feature, but name them 'Personal', 'Work', 'Recurring Work' etc. Recurring tasks are easy and you can set recurring reminders with them too (e.g. I have a recurring task for backing up my work PC, and a recurring reminder for the night before that to put the backup disc in my work bag).

    The free version gives me 90% of what I need, though I have recently upgraded to the paid for a couple of extra features (only about £20 per year I think).
