Works and is so simple to use - The best thing bout this app is that it just works and is based on simple use of a text only document. I am using it for tasks related to business operations and personal tasks. And, it works on my slower macbook even on Lion OS!

Most barebones app ever used - I only downloaded this because it was the only desktop checklist app I could find that was still compatable with 10.6. ALL this app does is put a little number on a text document (which you have to create from scratch yourself to serve as your list) which tells you the number of tasks you have left "unchecked." It knows based on whether you have or haven't placed an x between brackets. You have to type all those in yourself. Frankly, working this way is probably more time-consuming than me just making a spreadsheet and putting my x in a pre-made cell. If this program came with a template with a bunch of fresh brackets, I would have given it another star, but I have to make everything from scratch. I'm not lazy, I just want to use my time efficiently.

Good idea; doesn’t work for me - I tried to use this with a todo.txt file on dropbox. I couldn’t get it to work right.
