Cheddar keeps your world organized. It's easy to use on your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and on the web. Cheddar is super simple and instantly in sync on all of your devices.
Many todo lists have lots of clutter around creating tasks, adding tags, setting due dates, assigning to people, etc. Cheddar is just text. Type in the box. Press return. Done. If you want to tag a task, use a hashtag just like you would on Twitter. You can also use Markdown in your tasks for extra awesome.
With Cheddar, your tasks are instantly everywhere. Everything you do with Cheddar pushes to all of your devices, so your world is always in sync. It's really magical to create a task on your iPhone and have it instantly be on your computer without thinking about syncing.
You can use Cheddar for free forever. If you want to get a little extra out of Cheddar, you can upgrade to Cheddar Plus.

Immediate Rip Off: Read the Fine Print for Subscription Fees
Apple should be ashamed of themselves for actually promoting this as a “free” app when you only get 2 entries before an expenssive Pro subscription in app purchase. The app is simple and straight forward but the “RIP OFF” apparently is for the sync amoung devices. Way over priced. There are lots and lots of to do lists in a far better designed look….might need to consider this app ONLY if you just have to have coordination of the list among several devices….still extremely pricey for what you are getting. (I would go to a competitior whose description is more transparent.) The one star is for failure to market it for what it really costs up front
I'm using this app every day
I've used other To Do apps in the past, but eventually, I stop for some reason or another.
I like the fact that Cheddar synchs up with my phone, laptop, iPad and work computers. I don't find having to pay for more than 2 lists that egregious. And don't forget, you can delete the Cheddar default list so that you have 2 of your own. I have a Personal and a Work list, and so far, I don't need more.
The best task app I've come across
This app is awesome. I really like that you can add tasks quickly on the Mac with the keyboard shortcut, and that it syncs quickly between devices. I find that 2 lists is more than enough for me since I mainly just need one to do list for my tasks. The app is intuitive and elegant on the Mac and iOS, and it's free! So if you need a good task app that's simple, I suggest give this a shot.
