Some Novell guys (I think) hacked together this nice little app in their Hackweek for simply tracking of things that need to get done called Tasque. Aside from the option of storing things ‘simply’, you can integrate to the Remember the Milk online task management service (which in turn you can sync with the iPhone app they make.
