    Looking for a really good To Do or Reminder app. I know iOS5 will offer a native Reminder app but until then, any good suggestions?

    Thanks

    2do app? It's very powerful, and really well made and polished. I've been using it daily for.. hmm, at least a year I'd say, very happy with it.

    I would highly highly recommend StickyDoo. Unbelievable application.

    I like Pocket Informant. Its pretty heavy duty once you link it to a free Toodeloo account.

    iOS 5 is just few weeks away, so I wouldn't buy a paid app just now. Wunderlist is perhaps the most recommended free todo app. While a bit light on power with few UI issues, it should be sufficient for basic to do needs.

    Anyway, I have been using iOS 5's Reminders for many months now and while it is a good app, it does have few issues.
    • No badge notification of # of tasks due. It does have notification center alerts, however.
    • A bit slow when iCloud or Exchange account is used as storage.
    • Cannot manually order lists and tasks.
    • Although you can set priority (which affects sorting), the list does not indicate priority.
    • You cannot share tasks and list, not even as email.
    • Limited number of fields: reminder date, due date, repeat, priority, and note.

    If any of these bugs you, I recommend 2Do ($6.99, iPhone/iPod touch/iPad universal).

    I too agree that it may be best to wait for iOS 5's "Reminders" app. It's very well laid out and makes adding items incredibly easy.

    Funnily enough, with the present beta of iOS5, the Reminders app actually omits the option to add a new task on my phone so I haven't been able to use it for the past two weeks. That is actually making me realize how much I've been using it which speaks to it's quality.

    Completely agreed.

    You can't go wrong for 2Do, and for a universal app, it's definitely worth the price. Unlike the rip-off Things..

    Great feedback. Thanks again, guys!

    I really find Priorities meets all my needs, and they have a free version to try.

    I have since switched completely over to Firetask. Mac desktop and iPhone and iPad companion apps, plus it's easy to use like Things and has OTA sync.

    I've tried many different apps and I've settled on Wunderlist. Available for iPad iPhone web and OSX and syncs reliably.*

    EDIT: All versions are free.
