I’ve never had a problem with creating to-do lists, but having different lists scattered in different places seems to defeat the purpose of getting organized. So in the vein of actually having my to-do lists in one place, I’ve pulled together some of the best list-making apps out there. –Jeana
If you’re always on the go and want a cool feature like voice recognition to dictate your to-dos, check out Orchestra. You can designate separate lists for things like work,house, personal, this weekend and also organize by timeframe so you are reminded that you have to bring paper plates into your kid’s classroom tomorrow morning. You can also forward third party invites, reminders and bill notices to email@example.com to merge them into your to do list and keep everything organized.
It’s hard to create talk about to-do list apps without including Cozi,the gold standard in to-do list apps for families. Way more than a list-maker, Cozi also lets you manage everyone’s schedules, sync calendars, share grocery lists, plus it sends you helpful reminders for all these things you have to do on your to do list. It also syncs with the Cozi Family website.

This is an awesome organization app that we recently discovered. More than a mere list-maker, it’s GPS-based and keeps an eye on your location, so it offers reminders as you approach a store that you need to get something from. Genius! ($1.99, iOS)
