    Texas, unfortunately.
    Can't get a link to it right now, but the free "To Do" works well for me. It's a very simple app though, not many features some of the paid ones have.

    I use Remember The Milk. The app itself is free, but to use the service beyond the 15-day trial account, you need to sign up for their "pro" subscription which is $25/year. Some people complain about this, but I find the service invaluable. The app on the iPhone is great, the best to do app I've tried, but the main webapp is even better, and syncing between the two has always been seamless for me, unline some other services.

    I've also tried Things from Cultured Code along with their Mac application. The Mac app is superb, but the iPhone app is quite buggy, and they've taken a long time to fix bugs historically, and in the end I grew tired of waiting.

    I was a beta tester for Pocket Informant, and would recommend it for syncing with the online todo service Toodledo. It also syncs calendar events through Google Calendar, so if you want an all-in-one app for calendars and todos, then this would be my recommendation. The devs (WebIS) are very responsive to feedback and are very communicative regarding bug fixes, feature enhancements and future updates. All other devs should take a lesson from these guys. However I ended up going back to Remember The Milk myself, as it suits my needs more than Toodledo, and I love the simplicity of their service.

    I've also tried Todo from Appigo, and this is another very polished app that syncs well with Toodledo, Remember the Milk and iCal.

    If you need a really high-end solution for calendars, contacts, todos, projects, objectives etc., then Daylite Touch is an absolutely stunning app, but with a $50/year licensing, on top of the high cost of their desktop (Mac) solution, it doesn't come cheap.

    Other ones I've tried are:
    iMExchange, good if you want to sync tasks & notes with an exchange server.
    CalTodo, a basic iCal todo syncing app.
    Toodledo's own native app.
    OmniFocus is very good if you have a Mac and their desktop app, but a bit too bloated for my needs.
    SmartTime is rubbish....IMO.

    SmartTime gets smashed a lot around here. Their app has a bit further to go, but they are getting there.

    Pocket Informant has been good so far, a little slow at times, but I have no doubts it'll get faster and even better with each update.

    I used to use Todo (by Appigo) and Saisuke... and both are superb apps (Todo is for tasks only, and Saisuke only for events).

    I've wanted to just try out Omnifocus, but the price is a bit steep, and I don't have regular access tons PC (the one I use is old and incredibly slow, I avoid using it whenever possible).

    Go with Todo unless you've got subtasks within subtasks, then go with OmniFocus.
