Recommended by Apple, Any.do’s powerful to-do list combines task management, calendar and reminders all-in-one place for your personal and work life.

In researching the best free apps for the Mac, I started by using Apple's category list. This makes it easier to cover the wide variety of content available. If an app is on the Mac App Store, it is in one of the 21 categories that Apple has listed. Download Todoist: To-Do List & Tasks for macOS 10.11 or later and enjoy it on your Mac. ‎Ranked as “the best to-do list right now” by The Verge, Todoist is used by 25 million people to organize, plan and collaborate on projects, both big and small.

Stop overspending over complex project management tools. With Any.do’s all-in-one Mac app, you and your team are able to track tasks and events, post files and collaborate intuitively. Built to enable maximal customization, your Any.do will feel completely your own.

“I have tried many, many list managers and I finally stuck with on Any.do. I especially like the intuitive way it helps me organize my tasks into a Today list, a Tomorrow list, an Upcoming list and a Someday list. Optional reminders for the really important things are great too, as well as the ability to add notes and subtasks to any item. The mobile-desktop synchronization makes it a complete package; I am constantly adding, changing and completing tasks from my phone as well as from my Mac. I also appreciate the fact that there is a free version of this app that doesn't have ads in it. I highly recommend Any.do to anyone who wants a simple, clean, intuitive to-do list manager.”
