    GTasks. It syncs automagically with the tasks on your Google account, and there is a free version available. I like it because I can edit my task list from any computer or my phone.

    I'm using gtasks, and am content with it, haven't found a great task manager in Android yet.

    I use Ktodo. It's very simple in fact many might say too simple but for me it's perfect. And I use it many times a day everyday. If I don't put something on my list, it doesn't get done.

    If you need an app with more functionality than Google tasks take a look at Due Today which syncs with Toodledo or Astrid which syncs with Remember The Milk.

    Also, the Pocket Informant beta was released a few days ago. PI is a complete calendar and task solution. It has a few issues but has been very stable on my Epic.

    I use remember the milk app with rtm pro. Definitely worth every penny to me.

    +1 for GTasks. Seamless integration with my Gmail task list(s) and I love that I can edit the list from my computer as well as my phone. Developer updates the app regularly, it keeps getting better.

    Colornote...all around note taker, can make a widget out of a To Do list, will soon sync with PC so any notes on the phone will be at your computer. Easy to use, very flexible.

    Pocket Informant in public beta in the market. Can sync with Toodledo.

    If you need Exchange sync of your tasks then go with Touchdown from Nitrodesk, also available in the market.

    I use Due Today as well...very nice app. IMHO it's the best available at the moment. The scrolling widget is icing on the cake!

    I use Got To Do which syncs with Toodledo.

    I previously had problems with Astrid loosing repeating tasks on the day they were do although they still showed on RTM. At the time the developer showed no interest in fixing it.

    I agree that this is the best out at the moment. I love the scrolling on it also, between that and Android Agenda I have everything I need on one screen!

    Another 1 for Gtasks, I use it for any kind of lists or notes I need to keep on my phone. It's a lot more than just a task manager.

    im looking for a good to do list on my droid inc. my wife has the eris and it has an official htc widget that not even i can get. any body out there know of any, must be free too.
    i'd like to throw in my vote for Astrid. I LOVE astrid!

    My current setup on my EVO is pure calendar widget (paid for that one but i love it) and Astrid. One thing i love about Astrid is that it works with my Producteev account.

    Producteev is great as well, Online Task Management - Producteev
    definitely check that out - it's also free.

    Astrid also supports Don't Forget the Milk if you're interested in that service. i hear that one's awesome too, but never tried it.

    Essentially I can simply email task@producteev.com from any advice and put what i want in the subject, title, due date, priority.

    eg: Subject: Take my kid's candy away 5* 10/31/10

    that gets sync'd to my Astrid to do, my google calendar, ical and pure calendar widget.

    You can also add tasks to producteev and thus Astrid w/ google chat which is also very nice. And obviously you can just manually add the tasks to the app itself.

    I find the way Astrid lists the tasks and checking them off infinitely satisfying :-)

    I use or have used springpad, oi notepad, ak notepad, and catch on occasion for random notes and all are fine programs but Astrid and Pure have changed my life. really. On the horrible days i forget my phone i often find myself missing deadlines, meetings, incidentals etc.

    I know you didn't ask but the other organization app I love is ourgroceries. My wife has an iPhone and an iPad that have the ourgroceries app and it comes in handy all the time.

    good luck and keep the advice coming - i'm always on the look out for organization apps. keeps me from actually having to do any work ;p

    You convinced me
    I like this widget and Proucteev quite a bit, but I have one quick question. The widget itself, and this a problem with many widgets, has a dark shade which is unappealing and it covers the wallpaper (it is sorta transparent but not quite). Is there a way to make the widget fully transparent (that only the words will show up)? Currently it shows up as a dark splat on the homescreen...

    good question. doesn't appear to be a way to do that in Astrid itself. not sure if you can do this in the phone OS or not... i actually don't use the widget, i use the program.
    for my to-do widget i use pure calendar widget, which syncs up nicely with my Astrid and Google cal* iCal
