Todoist is a fantastic all-round to-do list application. Really perfect for most to all uses of task management.

This is one of the task management apps you can recommend to your family and a professional at work and they both will get how it works from day one. Todoist is a reliable, fluid way to capture and manage tasks — with some integrations for connecting to your Google Calendar.
