    Hi folks

    I'm hoping you guys can help me decide. There are just so many options! I have been looking to decide on a to-do/reminder app to use on my 5s and Mac but I can't make up my mind. I have tried Evernote, Things, Todoist (trying it now), and many more. I want something that's free, syncs seamlessly between my Mac and iPhone and most importantly, it should have a iOS widget so I can easily check off or add tasks from my notification bar.

    So, what are you guys using (besides Apple's reminder app - I've been using that all this time but I want something flashy now!). Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    Use Evernote and NoteOne, but for reminders I find myself using the stock version mostly.

    I used Reminders for a long time but always thought it need a lot or work on Apple's part.
    I started using Things on my iPhone and iPad when it was offered free a few weeks ago.
    Great app and just what I was looking for.
    Syncs seamlessly and has a great UI.
    I am not using it on my MacBook Air.
    Have a look.
    Good Luck

    Wunderlist. It's free, syncs seamlessly with almost every OS on the planet, and works amazingly on iOS. It's an elegant app and the functionality is far above anything else. Give it a go.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts lads. I have been using the stock version as well but I'm beginning to feel it could do with a little bit of polish in terms of functionality and looks. Kind of feels a bit dated. I think I'll keep Evernote to take down notes on my Mac. I really liked Things but the fact that it doesn't have widget to add/view tasks in iOS makes it less attractive for me. I am liking 2do so far. Will also give Wunderlist a go.

    What he said without the Mac usage. My goto app for staying on top of life.

    I am using 2do and quite liking it so far. Sadly, the reminder feature needs premium account.

    It is worth it... The dev has been making improvements to the app and every update makes it even better.

    Right now the only thing it does not do that I wish it did was nested projects. You can have one project with sub tasks but not projects in projects.

    and a link because I was in a rush before:

    Any.Do is my preferred. Sometimes for convenience I use Siri to set a reminder and Siri uses the Apple stock reminders app.

    I wish there was a trial version for 2Do. It looks interesting. In the midst of so many options I fear I am slowly gravitating towards the stock reminder app

    Small nitpick about it, they way you add time to reminders it's so easy not to touch the right spot on that dial, they could have just used the same method as everyone else, also that component doesn't match, everything else is hi tech and polished and then they have a dial to set the time

    You can try Simple note for note-taking. Pretty slick.

    So I just discovered todoist I think I found my perfect app I'm loving it!!! Although you do have to pay for the premium features to get the most use out of the app

    After trying various options I have ultimately returned to the stock reminders app. Simple and functional. I really liked todoist but the premium feature turned me off.

    Evernote Premium and the stock reminders app work great for me.

    Stock calendar alarm and reminder. All work great together and Siri is magical at adding entries into them.
