Short details Can run entirely from any USB flash memory drive, so you can work your schedule on any available Windows computer (without re-installing). World time zones/daylight saving, Skype dial, free SMS alarms, automatic work/life balance and life goals prioritization, likely the most detailed task recurring properties out there, automatic task splitting, full international support, input/search in 17 languages. 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.
