Short details Achieve Planner is a practical Windows time management software system that helps you get organized, get focused and get more done in less time. Lets you capture, organize and manage all your projects and tasks in one central place. Achieve Planner also allows you to align your time, effort and energy with your highest priorities so you can focus on what really matters most, without worrying about missing an important deadline.

Achieve Planner also lets you import all your existing data from Outlook and keep it in sync.
The Hit List is the definitive and impressive response to Mac's general lack of powerful task management software.

Able to support a wide variety to systems and styles, The Hit List can be as simple as written notes or as powerful as a search-and-destroy task list. Powerful search-lists allow for almost anything you can imagine with the simplicity of click-to-search.

The Hit List supports either GTD or TRO work styles and is highly customizable to fit a wide range of situations. Browser plugins, Gmail and iCal integration and a good iPhone app make this a great task list.

For Mac users looking for a powerful task manager that works offline, The Hit List should be the option you take most seriously.
