These smartphones have really changed the way we manage our lives. And these to-do apps and task lists have really made things much more different from what it would have been had there been no smartphones at all.

There are tons of productivity apps for the iPhone (or the iOS ecosystem generally). The range of diversity that developers have exercised in designing and developing their productivity apps is amazing and breathtaking. When it comes to productivity, to-do lists top the list of all apps that have the potential to cause a rapid shift in productivity. And so, quite naturally, we do a roundup of some of the finest to-do lists that we've seen in our curated travels through the app world.
