I recommend Todoist for you. Let us see how it satisfies your requirements. Must Have Features: Ability to maintain multiple distinct lists (such as one for personal and work items) In Todoist, you can create multiple lists, how many ever you wish, and also nested lists (lists within lists) up to 4 levels. For instance, during my semester, I have almost a ...

There is an excellent PIM/outliner called Treeline that is freely available (GNU GPL) and runs under Windows and Linux. There is a small, but reasonably gentle learning curve. It comes with a number of small sample files/databases to illustrate its chief features. The example of the book catalogue (screenshot above) shows how the categories could "map" to ...

Trello seems to have the requirements that you're looking for in an app. However, i personally recommended using Trello in conjunction with Todoist. You'll need to go in and tweak things around a bit, but this is the exact system that I've been using for a long time and it works for me. There are extensions in chrome browser that will show you a progress ...

Nobody talked about Trello yet ? It's free, there is an app for android (maybe iOS too, but I don't use that) and a website accessible from any browser. You can sync everything.

I would recommend Remember the Milk. It has all of your must have features, several desktop apps, ability to share tasks, tags and recurring tasks, integrations with outlook, gmail/google calendar add-ins. It also has a powerful saved search system.

After some time searching the interwebs myself, I actually found something that hit all the issues I need. Web based wasn't one of my needs, but it doesn't really matter if it was web based or software based. It gives me the ability to make my own columns, specifically the 4 I stated. It gives me the ability to post notes on the board and move them around ...

You could always use git itself! Have a directory called bugs and one called feature_requests, when you get a request create a new bug or feature request as a markdown or rst file, you could use a sequential numbering or more complex and then check it in, when it is finished add the details to the file including which release it is due in and check in ...

May be used for teams too (requires Redis server). Here's a screenshot of the ...

How about ToDoList? I find it to be quite powerful and although it does not cover everything you need, a good chunk of it is there: some descriptive text per item - check zero to n other ToDo items the current item depends on - check state (open/done/disabled (while dependencies are not yet marked as done)) - open/done states - check for each item ...

There is an android application that gamifies the everyday choires and has a to-do list. This is as close as something is to what you seek. At least as far as I know. Check it out : Habitica

I ended up using a PowerPoint presentation linked to an Excel spreadsheet that's shared among all four computers and writing a macro to auto-update the spreadsheet every time the PowerPoint looped. It works, but I feel like there has to be a more elegant solution.

Perhaps Taskwarrior? It is very feature-rich (albeit I find its documentation slightly lacking), you can run a Taskwarrior server and it has a pretty big ecosystem

Google Keep might be also suitable, you can add others as contributors with Google account to several notes (they can be simple notes, check lists, etc). It synchronises as simple as Gmail or any other Google app. The only downside is that all of you have to have a Google account.

I ended up using TickTick. It is a simple TODO app which can sync between members of a list. It is also free for a 2-user setup. You need to go premium if you need more than 2 users on a single list.

It's not free but I think its worth mentioning Todoist. It is BY FAR my favorite Todo app. They have a web app, android app, iOS app, browser extensions, and webhooks (I think). Their API is awesome I hear (haven't used it personally). No 'custom fields' but you can add notes/comments to each todo. A minimal feature set is available for free (useful ...

Maybe use gitlab. The issue tracker is superb. It also includes a Kanban-Board, but I don't know if this is included in the free edition.

If you are looking for something structured with a fixed set of columns and webbased is ok for you, I can recommend zenkit that also lets you organise your tasks / notes / objects in other useful views like boards, tables, mindmaps. If you would like something more free-form, that lets you organize your notes on something like an infinite zoomable ...

Have a look at myTinyTodo. Apart from breadcrumb navigation it seems to fit what you are looking for. Another one I found is Planz but it might be a bit overkill, functionality-wise.

How about ToDoList? I think it ticks all your boxes: create a project with as many sub tasks as you want, add a time estimate for how long each of the tasks/sub tasks will take, track your time you spend on your tasks in the app itself, there is no progress bar view to visualize task/subtask completion, but you can put a percentage of how far along your ...

The Task and To Do areas of Borg Calendar could work.
