I haven't really found anything that I like. What do people use?

I used to have a psion, and liked "mentor" a lot (mentor page). This automatically scheduled tasks in a fairly sensible order, so each day it would give me a list of things to do. Each task had a rough duration associated with it so rather than just showing a never-ending list of jobs it would suggest (say) 3 things to do today, and schedule the less urgent tasks for future days. If today's tasks didn't get done, then everything would be shuffled back semi-automatically, but jobs would not be pushed beyond their deadline (without user confirmation). It also handled fixed appointments, although i don't have many of them.

From your description of Mentor (I've never had a Psion), there's nothing very close to it on the Zaurus AFAIK.

IQNotes or perhaps Prozect are possibly close in terms of recording tasks, but both would need extending to show an intelligent list of tasks to do today based on priorities, deadlines and effort etc. They're both open-source though, so if someone has the time and skill they could extend them.
