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.
Priacta Coach's Review
Attractive and easy to use, Get It Done is a nice blend of utility and simplicity. The "intended" use is obvious while still allowing customizing to suit personal preferences.

Get It Done's best features include drag-and-drop processing and a compact--but useful--task line. You can set tags, due date, project, etc. all from the compact view. Email can convert to tasks, retaining attachments.

Mobile apps exist for iPhone, iPad, Android, Web, Windows 8, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry. Evernote integration is as simple as checking an option.

Get It Done allows you to assign tasks simply by dragging and dropping. It notifies you when someone assigns you a task, and when the task is complete. Also, Get It Done does not allow discussion or group projects.

Overall, Get It Done is good for people who want a clear, easily navigated task list without sacrificing good productivity.
