Project management / shared to-do list software for families?

I'm looking for to-do list software (or a service) that will allow my family to create and assign tasks to each other. The ability to put tasks in a "project" would also be appreciated.

We all have Macs, but web-based services would also be considered. Bonus points for iPhone apps.

We're willing to spend some money... but not a lot, and most task management services seem designed for businesses.

This what Cozi does. It is specifically for families.

We just started using Astrid for exactly this purpose. We're just using it for adults, so I don't know how it would work with younger humans, but it's been amazing so far -- shared grocery lists, project-specific to-do lists, persistent notifications, etc.

I recommend Trello.

Asana is designed for offices full of type-A personalities more than families. Still, it might be worth a look.

Seconding trello - it's as simple as it gets.

I like Orchestra.

Cozi is nice for household management. I rolled my own using all the tools from Basecamp. It supports multiple users and lets you set up projects, todo/task lists, and a nice whiteboard for collaboration.

Lists in the built-in Reminders app can be shared via iCloud.
