Everyone has a preferred method of organizing to-dos and notes. Your computer monitor may be littered with Post-its, or you may use your e-mail software to track action items.

Increasingly, though, people are turning to web-based tools. The benefit? To access these “cloud-based” tools, you don’t need to be on a particular computer, network or browser. As long as you can hop online, you can find all your precious lists. A few suggestions:

To-Do lists

RememberTheMilk.com: Clean and easy-to-use, this tool lets you access your to-do lists—and receive reminders—whether you’re on a computer or a smartphone.

Toodledo.com: A popular newcomer with a full slate of ways to enter, organize and sort your tasks.

TeuxDeux.com: Calls itself a “simple, designy, free, browser-based” app that syncs with the iPhone.

Task.fm, TaDaList.com and Gmail Tasks (mail.google.com/mail/help/tasks/): round out the list of list-trackers.


Evernote.com: The gold standard of online note-taking. Grab ideas from virtually anywhere and turn them into notes. You can create voice or image notes, as well. You can even create a contact database: Scan business cards and convert them into searchable text in Evernote.

Google Notebook (www.google.com/notebook) and Zoho Notebook (notebook.zoho.com): Capture notes, share and collaborate with others using these tools.

Springnote.com: A great tool for group projects, allowing group members to easily collaborate.
