I went on a little while ago about ToDo apps, and finally decided to jump on Appigo’s ToDo for the Mac. Â It’s OK. Â It has a few nice features but it’s missing things like adding tasks easily from Mail, or a nice quick systemwide interface using a hotkey.
They do have a systemwide interface, but it’s not a nice one. Â It just allows you to enter the title of the task but that’s it.
I may seem negative, I’m not, at least not totally. It has great syncing with ToodleDo which is a biggie (they’re missing the Status field, which could be important). Â I’ve simplified my lists considerably because of its design, and I actually think that’s a good thing. Â Now I have one for work and one for personal, and use contexts to separate them.
I made a context for work called “Analysis” and I hit that one at the beginning of the day, it’s really seemed to have helped. Â I move things to a “Contact” context if it gets to that next step.
Tags are important here but not sure if they translate well to ToodleDo and the iPhone apps I use. Â I’ll think that over.
