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:
Toodledo is one of the best personal task managers on the Internet. Fast, flexible and connected, Toodledo can be used to fit almost any work environment, any management style, and any time management system.

Favorite features include unlimited tagging, auto-prioritization, powerful searches you can save, and email-to-task integration. With Pro-plus account, you can attach files to your tasks or retain email attachments when converting email to tasks.

Dozens of third-party connectors give help you access Toodledo via Android, iPhone, iPad, and Blackberry with offline syncing for Windows, Outlook, and Mac. Importing your old tasks is quick and easy.

On the downside, Toodledo looks ugly and does not collaborate well. Assigned tasks simply appear in the other person's task list without notification on arrival or completion. Discussion on tasks must happen outside of Toodledo.

Toodledo is perfect for individuals who want to track their tasks from multiple computers and want access to their tasks on a mobile device.
