(Remember the Milk works for me, primarily because of its Gmail gadget.)
It's based around how I use a todo list: I have categories for work, home, projects etc. and I add the tasks to each. I use 'Summary as Prose' as a starting point for my journal. The sign-up is low friction - a random key is generated that you can use to log in from anywhere. Features aren't brilliant but it does what I need.
Slate put it in 2nd because they didn't seem to need all the features. For me the iPhone interface is all I need to pick it as #1.
No really, anything like it out there, or will I have to make my own?
'[username].ghostbin.com has a single input box with a submit button. at any time any user can enter a note which will be submitted to that account.
if they want to review or edit their notes, they can enter a password and see the admin page. notes can be viewed, maybe blog style'.
The idea was that when you're on the go, or you simply don't already have a cookie in your browser, you can dump some notes from a meeting, or something to followup later, just by going to an easily memorable URL, and then deal with actually managing the things later on, when you've got the time.
I have no idea how I'd build the thing, though.
I'll have to check out Todoist - it sounds like they offer nice grouping features, which is something the vast majority of apps are badly lacking.
the nice thing about it is that it understands what you type and displays it nicely formatted.

It's simple yet still aesthetically pleasing.
