Short details 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.
Easy-to-use interface allows filtering by groups, project, date ranges, as well as switching between daily, weekly and monthly views. Creation or editing of projects, tasks, and messages can be made with a single email. Now with free apps for iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, BlackBerry Bold, and WebOS.
