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.
Achieve Planner is a practical Windows time management software system that helps you get organized, get focused and get more done in less time.
