When I was asked by my friends at Mac360 to list my favorite Mac Menubar apps there was only one on the list that I could not do with out.
But in this case I fudged a little. I’m big into to-do lists, tasks, and mini-projects, and completely averse to project management.
For me, simple is better and that’s what Todo is. It’s a to-do list manager with just enough extras to make it more useful than typical to-do apps but it’s not a full fledged Menubar app.
Todo lets you create to-do items and lists, but it also goes a few steps into specialized territory by letting your group tasks into projects and assign checklists as subtasks.
While you can enter new tasks from Todo in the Menubar, it’s the standalone app that has the real visual appeal. All your lists are available with a click in the left hand Sidebar.
Each item can be a to-do item, or a task, or you can group tasks together in a project and even assign due dates and alarms.
Todo will list all items due today, items for tomorrow, items for the future (after tomorrow), as well as completed items.
Even better is the ability to sync the Todo database online using Dropbox or iCloud or Wi-Fi (I chose Dropbox– fewer screw ups), which then syncs with iPhone and iPad versions of Todo.
Todo is simple enough to use immediately for standard to-do items or basic lists, but you’ll easily pickup how to use it as more of a task manager within hours.
