    "Remember the milk is a great resource for setting reminders. You just enter the info you need to be reminded of, and it will remind you at the time you specify. It also sends reminders to various platforms such as Google Hangouts or Skype. This really is an incredible idea."

    "This app is great for those of us who need reminders clearly in view all the time. Keeping a running tab of daily tasks/goals/priorities keeps one focused and this app delivers."

    "Todoist is great for quickly jotting down the things that you have to do. It allows you to share the lists that you make, and the best part in my opinion is the ability for other people to send you updates about a list that they are involved in as well. Whenever they make a change you get a notification so that you are always up to date with your team."

    "I read the article 'Six Lists You Need To Make Every Day Productive' on fastcompany.com. I was looking for ways to organize my time a little better, and this article had some great ideas. I like the idea of making different lists and sticking to them. Making an outsource list and a talking points list seems extremely helpful."

    "Evernote makes creating--and maintaining--to do notes easy by making them available on all devices. If you are like me then your phone is probably with you always, but then when you need to make a note while you are working on a computer or in an meeting you may be using an Ipad or a desktop. The Evernote app allows you to quickly open it and add, edit, or delete at will. No more starting to-do lists and then abandoning them."

    "I have always been one who makes to-do lists. I usually found myself writing things down on paper. I decided that I would try out moving over to the digital world and download this app (Clear-Task, Reminders & To-Do Lists). It has now replaced my paper to-do lists and I use this app all of the time to make my lists. It is much more convenient. I have it there on my phone for whenever I need it."

    "Wunderlist is one of the more popular to do list programs. It is free with some premium features, but the free version is fine for me. I use it to keep track of my chores, groceries, and other random things that I forget all of the time."

    "After having 2 kids my brain has turned to mush and I can't seem to remember anything. I tried writing lists down and used a paper planner but I always forgot the planner and lists at home. I knew I needed an electronic solution. The Day to Day is perfect because it syncs by Google Calendar with my Google tasks all in one place. Now when I am at the doctor's office and I need to make an appointment I can look at my calendar and know if I had plans. Before I was trying to do it by memory and would often make an appointment only to get home and realized I had plans and then I had to cancel them. Having an app on my phone to keep me organized and tell me not only what appointments I have that day but what I need to accomplish that day has made me more efficient."
