ToDoSome tasks like getting a man to the moon are complicated and the systems needed to accomplish them are complicated. But some things, like keeping track of the things you need to do, are not complicated and the software you need to manage them should also be uncomplicated. ToDo from Omicron Software Systems is just that kind of software, uncomplicated.

itemThe basic functionality of ToDo is simple. Create multiple lists of items. Each item can have a priority from 1-10 or can be marked as done. Lists are kept sorted by priority with different color priority numbers marking high, medium and low priorities. You can quickly re-prioritize or select items using keyboard shortcuts. You can also drag items from one list to another in this clean Cocoa interface. If it did nothing else ToDo would be useful.

If you want to see what your top priorities are across all your projects you can click on the ToDo icon on the dock which will display a list. You can use that menu to navigate to the todo items. The menu can be displayed in one of 5 different formats.

You can import your existing todo items from iCal to get started. Registered users (the program is $15 as shareware) can also download “ToDo X to iPod Notes” to synchronize their todo list with their iPod and a script called “Mail to ToDo X” that will allow you to turn an email into a todo item.
