+The Verge How often will you update these videos?

Kerry Dawson says:

TickTick is by far the best

What about Tick Tick?

Mark Arness says:

People should also check out TickTick. I’m surprised it hasn’t had a bigger following.

Bobby Martian says:

no google keep? verge pls

Scott Pleasants says:

I would agree with this review that Wunderlist would be the best choice for most users. It is simple, effective and the UI for the smartphone rocks. I like Todoist for the Karma point system. This is nice and it can give you are review of how you spent time working on tasks graphically.
For more team based To-do’s, I say look at Asana. This is free up to 15 users and is incredible.

Just as the author said, pick an app and go with it. In fact, iOS Reminders is really nice and can handle you personal tasks quite easily….plus it is free.

Kevin Gates says:

Google Keep is great.

Linda Leijten says:

I couldn’t help wondering whether those people in the back knew they were being filmed hahaha

Cesar Perez says:

You just solved my dilemma. I’ve been using evernote and color note for years but thought there should be an app that worked better for making lists of things to do. I already installed Wonderlist but was considering Todoist but with your recommendation and the price difference the problem is settled, wonderlist it is.

Clifford Lawrence says:

Please update!

Dino Prašo says:

I love Google Keep, BUT I also have an iPhone (5) as well an HTC ONE X… Now on the android phone, I have a google keep widget, which is like the single best widget I have ever had, BUT there isn’t even an Google Keep APP for ios, let alone a notification panel widget… So, Is there any app that has an ios app and ios8 widget AND can sync to my keep account ?

Tony Zhu says:

Cortana is the best!

Sandro Badette says:

the background music is so annoying….

Christopher Rice says:

ok.  I’ll pay 5 bucks to the first person who names the first song in this video. 

Lộc Hồng says:

Since Apple released their Ios8, Evernote is the best to-do list, notes app in my opinion. From your notifications bar, you can take photos, make your notes, to-do list and much more…

Martin Das says:

does anyone know any reminder app for android that leaves a notification in the notification bar ?

Chand Hamal Thakuri says:

Google Keep is all rounder.. And the best one!!

Oliver Paulson says:

i hate this music

Jack Bointon says:

I use Evernote and Wunderlist in combination for note taking and as to-do lists in classes and at home and my god, they has done me wonders 🙂

Evernote is awesome because of it’s simple design and easy organisation which is helpful for school (e.g If I need notes for IT, I can go on my phone (because my sixth form allows phones) and get up Evernote and find the right notebook.)

Wunderlist is perfect for me for to-do lists, easy to navigate and is cross platform, so I can check on a computer. I use it for completing deadlines as well as for home (to help around the house) and do some work stuff.

TechTV says:

ill help you rob those iphone 6’s, ill take 10% of the cut

Bajal says:

I use Google keep. Got rid of and rtm a while back.
Also, for work stuff nothing beats jotting it down on a sticky and pasting it on my workplace desk.

Marcin Hinz says:

Hi guys,
Did you try Nozbe? Many people migrates from e.g. Todoist to Nozbe although it’s subscription based. I use it for a few years and love it.

Emad Ahmed says:

Damn, this guy fired the shots right at the beginning of the video…

Christopher Rice says:

what song is at the beginning of this video?
Shazam and SoundHound can’t seem to find it.

alwaysarcastic says:

Google Keep is now on iOS.

Mark Serrano says:

get a bigger table. 

Kavarian Joe says:

great video . big like 🙂 stop watching and go get some stuff done 🙂

Kürşat Türkay says:

todoist,clearapp and wunderlist are ancients.. discontinued apps. however apple firm supported them by advertising a thousand times. they forgot the new better apps to advertise. what a shame.!

using proud app and also sortedapp (namely stay sorted) both is futuristic and useful. I hate ancient technology apps.

CMYK says:

GoodTask and 2do are by far the best. GoodTask syncs with the native iOS calendar and reminder apps. But 2do has some better features.
