Apple builds in Reminders and Calendar for Mac, iPhone, and iPad, which can sync nicely together using iCloud, but that hasn’t stopped clever app developers from taking todo and task apps to the next levee. Here’s yet another way to do todo’s on your Mac.
Greater Than Sum Of The Parts
There’s more to Taskdeck than meets the eye. It’s inexpensive. It’s a click away in the Mac’s Menubar. It organizes, prioritizes, stores attachments, and is simple to use.
At first glance, Taskdeck seems like a pull down Reminders app. Unlike Apple’s free Reminders, Taskdeck can group tasks into lists.
That grouping capability makes Taskdeck good for small projects. The visual badges display the number of open, overdue, or due tasks from each list.
Prioritizing items on the list is easy, too. Just drag and drop up or down the list to set the order you want. Important items that need attention now can go higher on the list; less important items can drop lower.
Each item can be tagged which makes them easier to find in a search. Unlike Reminders, Taskdeck also attaches files or URLs to a task.
Click the Taskdeck icon in the Menubar and up pops the entire Taskdesk list of todo items. Click the checkbox and the task is marked as completed.
If you and your life are Mac only, you’ll like Taskdeck. It’s simple to setup and use, always handy in the Menubar, and not cluttered with obtuse configuration options.
Therein lies the only issue. It’s Mac only. As in, there’s not an iPhone or iPad version available, and that’s too bad. Otherwise, well done.
