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.
Ajour is an easy-to-use personal information manager (PIM). Use it as a combined calendar, diary, organizer, and reminder. Keep track of dates, appointments, annual events like birthdays, todo items, and notes. Additionally, you can dial phone numbers stored in your data just by double-clicking them.

In the Ajour package you also get a program that starts when you log on/start your computer (which can also be turned off). It will show you whatever upcoming appointments and events you have in the following week as well as any "tagged" to-do items you have entered.
