Selecting the five best task management apps for the iPhone and iPad presents quite a challenge. A simple to-do list may be the best fit for one user, but woefully inadequate for someone who wants to implement a more robust task management system like the Getting Things Done (GTD) methodology developed by David Allen.

Whether you only want to keep a simple list of tasks or need an app that can keep track of every detail of your life, you will find the perfect app among the following.

Now you can use the iPhone to track the news, sports, and weather; quickly locate restaurants, movies, public bathrooms, even your friends; play games, listen to music, or watch videos. In addition, a number of apps enhance its capabilities as a productivity tool.
