things-for-ipad-productivityThings for iPad. Cultured Code. $19.99. Rating: 7/10. How good does a to-do list – sorry, task organizer – have to be, to be worth $19.99?

You can sort them by various criteria, arrange lists into projects, and keep it all together with Things like with no other app. Still, 20 bucks buys a lot of bits of string to tie around your finger.
