For gnome shell - a simple extension exists. Is there any similar extension for Unity as well?

No, currently there exists no to-do-applet for Unity.

However, there are softwares for doing the same. For example, you can have a look at Nitro.

Nitro availabe on the Software Center

From apps.ubuntu.com:

Nitro makes tasks management super easy and awesome. It's super fast, simple and offline and can be used without an internet connection. Nitro also packs Dropbox and Ubuntu one sync.

Thanks. But applet would be more handy for simple "To do" stuff –  mac Apr 15 '13 at 10:43

As far as I found, Getting Things GNOME! is the best one. It has an indicator applet (You need to enable in preferences)

Hamster Indicator

The Hamster Indicator helps you keep track of your tasks, like the Gnome 3 "To Do" applet.

  • Icon at the taskbar:

  • Dropdown menu:

You can install it from the Ubuntu Software Centre:

Or from the Terminal with the following command:

sudo apt-get install hamster-indicator

This is actually not similar to To do applet for the main reason you cannot view multiple activities with one click from the applet. You can get it in a slightly different way but its not the same. Even its philosophy. But thanks. –  mac Apr 15 '13 at 13:51

I think you might be looking for something like this.

Tomboy Notes is perhaps the only "to do" applet for unity. Fully customisable, and can also perch into the taskbar neatly :)
