We like to keep all kinds of lists; wish lists, checklists, lists of lists… you get the picture. In this roundup we will focus on services specializing in wish lists (things we want) and checklists (things we want to get done). Using these mobile and web-based tools you can keep track of daily tasks, build your reading list, organize your holiday gift giving, and more.
