I've used this product for many years now, and have found it to be stable, effective, and incredibly useful. I have used it to manage daily tasks, personnel management, IT systems operations management, new projects, event management, and much more...and it's worked extremely well for all of these. It's more flexible than a Gantt (though those do have their place and I use them too), and I feel an excellent buy for what you get. I've had one problem with a previous version that I contacted the developer on and described, and he jumped on it and got it tracked down and fixed very quickly--great response. I have used other products of this type as well, and to my way of thinking, this is the best of the breed.

Hotkeys don't stick... Pretty hard to test an app w/o those features plus has anyone figured out a way to "tab" or move over to the right-panel to fill in all the note details w/o having to leave your keyboard... i.e. no mouse... Thanks, dev, please look at hotkey bug, I am on 10.6.2 mbp late '08. Thanks, I thought this app was dead... good to see an update!

Although this looks very promising, it is also very buggy - especially for a 1.2 release. Numerous crashes, no way to bring your main window back up if you accidently close it, etc.

I will keep my eye on this program, but it feels more like a beta or even alpha program than something that is ready for prime time.

There is an issue up to version 1.2.2, due to a Mac OS X bug, which could cause apparently random crashes, it's solved in 1.2.3.
As for the main window issue, just click on the dock icon to have the main window reappear (as standard for mac applications), or use the related, configurable hotkey.
While no app is ever bug free, I haven't received reports about constant, heavy crashes, except for the above mentioned bug, so if you are esperiencing serious issues, send crash reports about them, as it will help a lot in solving pending bugs.
