This lets you create to-do lists with built-in reminders. Best of all, Wunderlist is compatible on a wide range of devices so you can sync your lists among all of the devices you own (including PC, MAC, Android, iOS, etc.) or share them with any employees or partners. A pro version is also available that removes limitations on list and file sizes.

Toggl shows you exactly how much time you spend on tasks during the day. This is great for entrepreneurs because all of your billable time is accounted for.
