    What i'm after is a way to be able to add todo/task items on my iphone and macbook (maybe gmail calendar aswell) and have them sync between all the devices so they are all the same. Also be able to delete them from any one device etc.

    I have looked at toodledo but i can get it so i can add it on my iphone but it only lets me view them in iCal and google calendar not add new ones or mark them as complete.

    Is there any way of doing this other than waiting for ios5 and icloud?

    What is the BEST Todo app for iOS and Desktop (Google)??????

    Hopefully we can gets some replies to your thread. I know there are probably more posts on this, but hopefully there are new options and new features on older programs that would change the answer to this.

    Like the OP, I need something that sycns in both directions.

    I really like CalenGoo, but the ToDo portion of it is very limited, especially on an iOS device.

    CalenGoo does Sync very nicely, both directions, with Google's Task Gagdet, so that I can add a task on a desktop or an iOS. But, the options for adding a due date with a time, are limiting. Also, priority is an important aspect I think, and not only can you not set a priority, you can't raise or lower an item from iOS (you can on a desktop...called "My Order").

    So, there has to be something better out there, something that will sync with my iPhone, iPad, and Google Gadget on a desktop.

    You could use Appigo's ToDo apps...

    So you could use Toodledo on the web, ToDo on your iPhone and Todo on your Mac and they will all sync with each other.

    Appigo also has their own online ToDo service (which you have to pay for).

    If you're not bothered about online web access then Omnifocus is excellent..

    and syncs across the internet between your devices.

    If you want to sync locally (i.e have your iPhone next to your Mac to sync) then try Things...

    Only syncs locally between iPhone and Mac currently, they are working on web syncing but to say their development process is slow is a hell of an understatement (which is a shame as it's a lovely app).

    Hope that helps! :)

    Thanks for taking the time to reply!

    I will look more at those, but in the past, I don't think they play well with Google Calendar and Google Task or something similar.

    The problem I have is that for 8 months of the year, I am 75% PC desktop until I get out of school (teacher). Then, the rest of the day, I am either on an iPhone or, when I get home, iPad.

    I don't use the iPhone or iPad much during the school day. And, when I am at school, I am split between three different computers.

    So, I REALLY need something that syncs really well with a browser window, and Google Tasks, Google Calendar and Google Notebook have all been really wonderful. But, with the exception of Google Calendar (computer) and CalenGoo (iOS), I have not found anything that sycns well with either of the other two. And, unfortunately, Google discontinued development of Google Notebook so nobody is syncing with it since you can no longer install that gadget...although it is the best!

    In that case you might want to have a look at Remember The Milk, it plays well with Google and is good if you don't mind using it in a browser and not a desktop application.

    It has an iPhone app too, which you can sync to for free once per day. If you want to sync lots and have push notifications then you'll need a pro subscription - I have and use one and it's very good.

    Have a look...
