Full-power task management doesn’t mean hard-to-use
TaskSurfer gives you all of the tools you need to manage things the way you want. Stick things in folders, use contexts to decide where and when to work on stuff, or tag it with a location and let your Mac sort it out for you. Go crazy with tags and use the Tag Browser to keep it sane. Because TaskSurfer is written on top of core Mac OS X technologies, you’ll be up and running right out of the box.
If we’re going to spend time in front of a computer, we’d rather spend it in front of our Macs. But that’s not always possible, and that’s why TaskSurfer synchronizes your tasks to Toodledo, the web-based task management service. If you don’t get to use a Mac at work or on the road, you can access your tasks from any web browser.
What about my phone or iPad?
Many popular iPhone and iPad task management applications sync with Toodledo (including Two Dogs’ own forthcoming iPhone/iPad apps), so you’re not locked into someone else’s idea of what mobile task management should be.
Full of Snow Leopard goodness
TaskSurfer takes advantage of the good things in Mac OS X Snow Leopard, like 64-bit processing to use all the power of your Mac, and Core Location so that your Mac knows where you are.
❊ Synchronize your tasks with Toodledo to keep Macs synchronized at home and office, and access to your tasks even when you’re not in front of your Mac.
❊ Tags - keep your tasks organized the way that works for you. With the Tag Browser, it’s easy to view your tagged tasks any way you want.
❊ Location-based Contexts - using Snow Leopard’s Core Location services, your Mac knows where you’re what and what tasks you should be working on.
❊ Accessible - written and tested to support VoiceOver.
❊ Smart Folders let you bucket your tasks by common attributes. All of your high priority tasks for that big project that are due next week but don’t start until Tuesday? Smart folders have you covered. Tell TaskSurfer what to collect, and the smart folders do the rest automatically and behind the scenes.
❊ Folders can contain tasks for projects, people, or what ever you want.
❊ Contexts show what you should work on where ever you might be, whether near a computer, on the bus, or by the phone.
• The sidebar now has an "All Tasks" item that shows all tasks, depending on the filters one has set.
• The task count badge for folders and contexts is only shown if there are tasks for that folder or context.
• Bug fixes
Most Helpful Reviews
Syncs with any app that uses Toodledo. Finally, easy iPad/iPhone sync! - This app is a nice companion to Appigo's ToDo on the iPad (which also syncs with Toodledo). So far, I've had no sync issues so kudos to Two Dogs Software for that. Add user-selectable fonts (larger font sizes especially) for the sidebar, list, and task details and this gets 5 stars.
Awful Program - Program would be great if offers syncing with other services in addition to Toodledo. Also, there is a basic item missing when creating tasks. You can not make tasks repeating. Also, a calendar view would be awesome. There are bugs in the program. Tasks disappear. I just revised my review for a second time within an hour of purchasing this program. It just synced with Toodledo and erased all my tasks! 0 stars! I also want my money back!
