TaskSync for Mac connects Remember the Milk and iCal

If you use Remember the Milk to manage your to-do list on the web, but you want to see all your tasks in iCal on your Mac when you get home, TaskSync has got a solution for you. This free OS X app provides two-way syncing between Remember the Milk and iCal, so any changes you make to one task list will soon show up in the other. You can even use the @ symbol in iCal to create a tag that will show...

Todo.ly is a to-do list manager for Chrome and the Web

To-do lists are pretty important for getting things done; and much like text editors, every person has their own favorite flavor, and it seems like every developer has a slightly different idea of what an ideal to-do manager would look like. Todo.ly is one take on the do-do list manager. It also comes as a Chrome Web app, so if you use multiple synchronized Chrome browsers (or Chrome OS) and...

wunderlist is a cross-platform free to-do list manager

wunderlist is a minimalistic, pretty to-do list manager. Here's a quick rundown of what it can and can't do: Pros: Looks: It looks quite pretty. You can change the background, and it's generally just lovely. Simplicity: That can also be considered a bad thing, I guess, but wunderlist is very simple. There are no nested tasks, for example. Multiple lists: You can easily create extra lists...

pleasnotify.me lets you quickly assign tasks over email, spam random people

pleasnotify.me is a fairly straightforward Web app: You fill in a quick form with the recipient's address, a task, a due date, and your address. The email is sent out, and the recipient is supposed to reply by the time the task is done. On the surface, all is well and fine. I mean, it's not the most original application in the history of the universe, but it's okay. But when you stop and think...

Coolendar is a slick natural language online calendar

When you think about it, a calendar is basically a to-do list with dates. Sure, we're used to looking at it in a certain format – all of those little squares, one per day. But coolendar takes the concept of a calendar and strips it from that familiar representation, leaving just a neat, carefully dated to-do list in its wake. Visually, it's very cool. It's got that iPhone-app aesthetic that...

Daily Todo is a gorgeous, minimalistic manager for repetitive tasks

Every once in a while, a tool comes along that just blows my mind. I'm sorry if that sounds hyperbolic. I mean, when technology progresses, it often moves in the direction of complexity: Take my current Android phone and compare it to the Nokia I had ten years ago, and I think you'll see what I mean. And every now and then I come across something that completely, and beautifully, bucks this...

Epic Win app turns your life into an RPG to help you attack your to-do list

Many geeks view daily life and its challenges the way they view a role-playing video game. Clean up your apartment? Get experience points! Go to work? Collect gold! Work out? Increase your strength attributes! Well, a new iPhone app called Epic Win attempts to translate those imaginary points into real points in a game. It hasn't been released yet, but the trailer shows how the game will...

Remember the Milk and Appigo can't get along; users get screwed

[Update] As Michael points out in the comments, I neglected to mention that Appigo has worked out a deal with Toodledo to offer a free for 6 months Toodledo PRO account to all affected customers. Remember the Milk, if you're not familiar with it, is a very popular web-based task management application that we've frequently covered here at Download Squad. In fact, I've been a big supporter of...

Nirvana may bring bliss to hard-core GTD fans

Nirvana is a new to-do app, aimed mainly at GTD fanatics. If you love contexts, ticklers, "next actions" and various other GTD buzzwords, you'll feel right at home with Nirvana. The system is currently in invite-only beta, but they were kind enough to send me an invite so that I could review it. After the fold, you can see a fairly extensive screenshot tour that gives a pretty good idea of what...

QuestTracker lets you sort your real life to-do list into bite-size Warcraft chunks

My name's Sebastian... and I'm a raider. Not just any raider -- a hardcore raid leader. World of Warcraft stopped being a game for me years ago: now it's simply a matter of organization, time-management and logistics. I've got my in-game routine down perfectly, but out-of-game -- in 'real life' -- some kind of to-do list, a task list, a quest tracker would be great. You can probably see where I'm...

To -> done is a Todo app with no "todo list"

I am very impressed with To -> done. Web 2.0 is not easy to get right; I see so many Web apps that either oversimplify or go overboard with visual flair or needless AJAX. Also, "todo lists" are a dime a dozen these days. It's an extremely competitive market, starting with the big boys like Google Tasks and Remember The Milk, and going all the way to the smaller (but still excellent) guys like...

GTDInbox Firefox add-on turns Gmail into a todo list

I think it's pretty safe to say that most people who are not using some kind of stand-alone todo list are using their email inboxes as their de facto todo list. While that clearly works for some people, it's not kosher in the Getting Things Done universe. If you're a Gmail user and you're finding yourself overwhelmed with trying to keep track of things in your inbox, but don't really want yet...

2Do is a gorgeous iPhone task management app

If you're already using iCal's built-in todo management, or Outlook's tasks on a Windows machine, and you're just looking for an iPhone app that can synchronize with what you're already using, you should check out 2Do. 2Do is a very well-designed and pretty to-do list manager, with the ability to create multiple lists, set priorities and due dates, notes, URLs, and even default actions such as...

Choosing the right tools for your process

As I mentioned last time, don't choose a tool that doesn't fit your flow. What does that mean? Here's an example: I thought I'd be clever and create a separate flow for home and work. Since I work at home, the thinking was that I'd further separate my two worlds with two systems. In one corner I had The Hit List syncing to iCal which in turn was syncing with Todo on my iPhone. In the other...

TASCK - Minimalistic online task management

TASCK is a bare-bones task list-manager web application. What TASCK lacks in features, it makes up for in minimalism. Literally, the only thing you can do on the site is add tasks by hovering over the plus symbol, and either check off or delete them as you complete them. It's unclear what the difference is between checking off a task and deleting it; in either case the list item simply disappears....
