Best todo apps for Mac: Omnifocus, Things, Wunderlist, and more!

We spend a good majority of our lives completing tasks. Whether that's buying groceries or finishing assignments or scheduling projects, keeping everything straight and getting things done in the most time effective way possible can sometimes be a task in and of itself. If you're a Mac user, there are lots of apps available that can help you organize the chaos. Most even have iOS counterparts to keep you productive on the go too. Todo apps can come with a high price tag, however, so it can be hard to decide on which one to go with. Here are our current favorite todo apps for Mac and the workflows they're best suited for.

Text editors are an entirely different story. Text editors are much more helpful if you're editing code, creating web pages, doing text transformation or other things that a word processor is just overkill for. Here's a roundup of the best ones you can get for your Mac at the moment.

Some of the more popular options, such as Reeder, haven't updated in time for the Mac, or perhaps our new RSS service of choice isn't supported by our most used application. The scramble settled, eventually, and I found myself on Newsblur which then lead me to ReadKit for Mac. ReadKit goes far beyond just RSS, though, it'll pull in most of the popular reading services too. Let's take a look.
