A few months ago, I started hunting around the web for a good to-do task management app.
I wanted something more advanced than a simple, straightforward to-do list. If I wanted that, I could just as easily use Evernote. At the same time, I didn’t want an app that was a deep project management system like BaseCamp.
So, here’s what I’ve compiled (including suggestions from ChurchMag readers) thus far:

- Chandler Project
- A notebook
- Action Method
- The Hit List
I’ve received an amazing amount of feedback! I’m so excited!
This is what I’ve tried and reviewed up until now:
I love it’s simplicity. I love how I can throw it around and it doesn’t break or get too complicated. It has really improved my day-to-day task management; however, there are times I find it too limited in its functionality. Cliche, perhaps, but Wunderlist’s greatest strength is also its greatest weakness: It’s simple. I’m still using Wunderlist and will continue to do so. It is the perfect solution for planning-out my daily blog posts. – Read the Full Review
I really enjoyed using Todoist. Although plain and simple in design, it really delivered when it came to usability. If you want to use some of the premium features, it’s also very affordable at around $30 a year. One of my favorite aspects of Todoist was the browser extension. There was no need to switch tabs or programs! I could easily have full access to Todoist straight from the pop-out window. – Read the Full Review
I didn’t have my hopes set too high with Google Tasks, but I was pleasantly surprised. Just as we have seen Google integrate many of their products into Google+ Plus, Google has done a great job of integrating Google Tasks. It does, however, lack some depth and it still feels like it’s more of a beta product than a finished piece of work. – Read the Full Review
GQueues looks and feels like a Google application in both look and function. The whole online system is built around Google. You can sign-in and start using it via your Google Gmail login or Google Apps sign-in. There is a both lite version and fair priced full version, but I think you’ll find the lite version good enough for basic task management. – Read the Full Review
Remember The Milk has been around a while and its experience shows! With a seriously long list of apps that sync with your device, or the Gmail integration options, you should find Remember The Milk a sweet solution for task management. – Read the Full Review
Next Up …
I think it’s time to get some insight from someone, else!
In the meantime, if there are any to-do task list apps that you use or would like to see added to the list, drop it off in the comments and I’ll be sure to add it!
Until next week …
