Simple to-do lists are about a dime a dozen. Maybe less. Many are free. Most don’t do much more than capture your to-do items into a list. Stickies and TextEdit will do that, and they’re built-in to your Mac.
What you want and need is a truly useful, configurable, Cloud syncing, iCal syncing to-do list app that’s familiar, fun, and worth more than it costs.
That’s the elegant, simple To-do Lists app for the Mac. Take a look at this. Look familiar? To-do Lists looks and feels like Stickies, but with all the features you wish Stickies had, and a few more.
To the left of each to-do item is a check box. Check it when the to-do item is completed.
Editing is rich text so you can change fonts and sizes, and even the color of the to-do list, and keep multiple to-do lists (different colors for different tasks).
Did I mention alarms? To-do lists syncs up with iCal so you have alarms for due dates and times for to-do items.
To-do Lists resides in your Mac’s Menubar so it’s easy to use. Click the icon and the drop down menu gives you all sorts of options.
Even better is the synchronization capability. To-do Lists syncs with iCal, iCloud, and your Dropbox account. That means to-do items sync up quickly between Macs. And, it syncs with iCloud and Reminders, so you have to-do items on iPhone and iPad.
For the money, To-do Lists is a sweet, elegant, very useful Mac to-do list manager that takes only moments to get up and running, and the to-do items follow you wherever you go (between Macs, iPhone and iPad).
Don’t worry about tasks and project management or assigning and delegating tasks to others. There are plenty of more expensive and capable apps for those functions. This is just for simple, Reminders-like to-do items.
