You can set fixed reminders ("Pay credit card bill!") or just add one-time events. You can also turn on reminders so the app pings you either before a task is scheduled, at the time it's scheduled, or as the "absolute deadline" (another field you can fill in) has passed. The reminders are cute and cheeky, too: "When you have a minute: Clean out your inbox," for example. Other useful features are the ability to hide tasks until a certain day and a completion meter that gives a visual representation of how much progress you've made on task-completion.
If you're like me, and you'd rather have your to-do list in one handy spot, TeuxDeux will help you manage your lists online. By using TeuxDeux, you can check off tasks when they are done, move them around, delete them, and see the entire week in advance.

There's just something about actually writing down your to-dos that makes you get 'em done. I admit — as much as I tout the joys of using my iPhone to list what I have to do during my day, I always find that I remember more when I'm physically writing them down on a piece of paper. So if you are also a fan of low-tech methods to help you get things done, then check out DIY Planner.
DIY Planner is your one-stop shop for free downloadable and printable to-do lists, exercise logs, budget planners, and the like; plus, you can find tips to making your own planners and productivity templates. You can still get your digital fix (by going online and downloading your planner) while still getting that fulfillment of checking things off your list the trusty old analog way — with a pen and paper.
Have you been using Google tasks to manage your "to do" lists? You can turn Tasks on in the Labs section of your Gmail settings. Once it's enabled, you will find Tasks under your contacts and you can start creating your virtual lists!
Well Google has just announced a new helpful feature in Tasks that is sure to make all of our lives easier. Say you are quickly jotting down notes in your Tasks list throughout the day, but you want to go back later and organize each item in its appropriate list?
Well now you can easily move them to a list by clicking on the arrow to the right of the task. And if you want to create a new list like shopping or travel, etc., just click on the paper icon at the bottom right of the Tasks screen and click on "new list." I think I can officially kiss my text edit "to do" lists goodbye.
I'm a fan of simple, straightforward websites, and right now Do It Do It Done is doing it for me. A very simple to-do list website, you just start adding tasks to your list (hang on to the url to return to it), and then click them to cross off.
It's kinda sad that this is a bonus now, but there's no required registration to use it. That means, no login to get into what you need. Just go to the page, and start writing in what you need to TCB (that's Taking Care of Business).

Done and done is one of my favorite — and overused — lines. So when I came across Now Do This, a to-do list application website, I couldn't help but give it a whirl. So maybe you can't see your entire to-do list like with Remember the Milk or sticky notes on your iGoogle page, but it is plain and simple. Just go to the website, enter your tasks and to-do items in order of priority, hit save, and it'll show you the first one on your list. Click done when a task is completed and it'll move on to the next one, just like that. Done and done.
