I have seen teams successfully use:

* Basecamp
* Jira Greenhopper
* Trello
* Scrumy
* Wrike

All are primarily web based, comparatively inexpensive (some are freeware), and none are open source. Not sure about mobile clients.

Perhaps one will fit your style.

Generally this is sufficient for me, but I'm finding I need more than a list. I need to see project status, burn-down charts, and be able to track projects, bugs, and backlogs. Most of the time when you ask for those features though you get a massively bloated app. I stubbled across PlanBox and Pivotal Tracker today though and am intrigued.
