Take out the papers and the trash
For the list-makers, it’s an app to remember

Remember the Milk, one of the premier task-management apps out there, is a Web and mobile app that helps you keep track of your busy, busy life. This service lets you manage several to-do lists at once, integrate your lists with Gmail and share to-do lists with contacts. You can also publish your to-do lists to the public. It’s difficult to set times for tasks, but if you’re using the app for less time-sensitive reminders — think tasks and not meetings — then it’s a great way to keep organized. The biggest roadblock for this app is the price: Signing up is free, but the service will ask you to pay to upgrade to the Pro version, which is required for the Android app. Free version for iOS and Web; Android app requires $25 a year membership after trial period.
