To-do managers regulate appointments and tasks

Conclusions

The to-do managers discussed in this article cover a wide range of tasks (see Table 1 for an overview). If you need a plain old task manager without an automatic reminder function, BasKet, RedNotebook, or GTG. The first two stand out because they can also handle unstructured data.
