Todoist is available for web, desktop (Mac and Windows), Android, iPhone and browser extensions for Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
Any.do is also a great Wunderlist alternative with a very simple interface. You can also use this app to create the checklist of today’s office tasks or other errands like shopping list or anything.
