Top Task List
Top Task List is meant for simple and intuitive task list management while one is constantly on the move. The minimalistic feature helps the user to focus on keeping the task list always ready for editing.
The part we loved best was the black coloured background though now users can categorize tasks using colours. After that, the most important tasks can be pinned to the start and later sub-tasks can be accessed in the app.
Multiple task editing is possible and users can also set reminders. On completing the tasks, simply shake the phone and the completed tasks automatically get removed. Top Task List is available for free from the Windows Phone store.
