Todoist's web and desktop interfaces have a 2-column layout. The right column has all tasks organized in nested lists with color codes and information such as what people are assigned to each task and which project the task is part of. The left column offers ways of accessing various groups of tasks – tasks that have to be completed within a certain timeframe, tasks that are a part of a certain project or have certain labels attached to them, etc. The left column also contains filters that allow even more advanced ways of finding a group of tasks. The mobile interface follows a similar design philosophy, but gives each column a separate view. See More
I have tried them ALL - literally. Used to use IQTell but it went belly up (mainly because it integrated email so well), but with the sunsetting of Google Inbox I've been forced back to Gmail and fortunately there is a Todoist extension that lets me send emails into my process. I've stuck with Todoist the longest, that in itself is a good indicator of its value. Highly recommended by this GTD practitioner. See More

Nozbe has not yet implemented task dependencies or chain tasks, which allow you to sequence tasks in a project so that, as you complete the priority task, the next task in line automatically becomes the priority. It is a feature they are supposedly working on, however. See More
Weekly reviews are facilitated by handy team member buttons that bring up all tasks being handled by each team member. You can also use the calendar function to review tasks that were due during a week and update as needed during the weekly review. See More
The mobile apps for Nozbe are extremely well designed. It is easy to quickly add a task while you are on the run as a "place marker" that you can come back and amplify. At the same time, you can access and implement virtually every feature on Nozbe directly from your handheld. See More
