I was going to recommend TuDuMo.  It was originally supposed to be a pc version of TaskPaper, a plain text to-do app for the mac.  It had many advantages: Plain text files.  Very simple, and keyboard shortcuts.  Not free, but very reasonable for the power.

But, now it uses XML files.  And they're still decipherable, but a long way from the old format.  In the old format, each todo was a line in the file.  Tags were @tags at the end of the line.  When a task was done, it was flagged with a - before the line.  The app interpreted all of this into its interface, but it was beautiful.  But now it's an example of what happens when someone decides to do too much with their original idea.

It's still a cool app, but I weep for what it was before.

Maybe I can make one that does what it used to do...

Ah!  You are right.  That's exactly what I remember.  What a shame.  I was all set to use it.  Maybe someone here would be interested in reviving the idea with a coding snack?

FYI  - if it's based on TaskPaper, you can find that over in the App Store.

Don't you use an iPad?

I'll see if I can get to it- maybe release it for the fundraiser... ! :)

Just as a start, the format I have in mind is something pretty simple.  Each line is one item of the format

-Task @Context +Project

where "Task" is the description of the task, "@Context" are the contexts of the task, "+Project" is the project the task should be assigned to, and "-" denotes that the task is completed.  There can be more than one "@Context", but only one "+Project" per line, with the "-" having to be at the beginning of the line, and the "@Context" and "+Project" having to be at the end.  The only problem that I can see from the format is the inability to have the @/+ sign next to a word, but I don't think that should be too limiting...

Thoughts?

One caveat to that is that the only desktop app is for Mac...

That's a good idea!  Thanks, I didn't think of that.  it doesn't help me for work, but I will definitely see if it fits in my personal work.

Man, there was one that was really cool.  It was stored as text files, and certain prefixes did certain things inside the program.  it was extremely simple.  Similar to the one skwire mentioned above, but even more simple.  What was the name?  Someone either recommended it here, or it was on BDJ.  I don't remember.
Possibly TodoPaper or Paper.

Do I miss anything by just using Notepad to keep a todo list?

I just noticed that Wunderlist is not mentioned in this thread. It appears to have some pretty good "task list sharing" features. Originally found in the Cloud thread started by Tuxman!

Ha!  A couple of weeks ago, I started using Wunderlist on my ipad.  I haven't needed it yet, but if I were to choose one right now, it would be the one.

I've been using the web based Toodledo site and have been very happy with it.

Anybody here using cintanotes for todo lists? It works quite well, and it separates collection (with a global shortcut) from planning/organizing (looking at the list). I like it.

On linux I use task warrior, and I love it, but the win cmd sucks so much that it makes me consirer switching. It depends on cygwin, which I hate.

https://workflowy.com/ supports sharing of lists, either in view or edit mode. Just hover over part of a list section's bulletpoint and choose share. Amazing program.

What about http://todotxt.com/  This used to be Todo.sh that was on Lifehacker.

Commandline control of textfile todolist.
