I previously left a review about this app talking about how awesome it is - then I saw schoolhouse. Schoolhouse is 10x better for what I want to do, and is jam-packed with great features. After I discovered schoolhouse, I deleted task list. Now, however, Schoolhouse shuts down every time I open it, so I'm back to Task List. This isn't a bad program by any means, I just think that Schoolhouse (when it works) is a lot more useful for me. Love the tabs, by the way!

usually, i don't write reviews on here.. but i felt inclined to give this developer a kudos. this app is a great must-have for students. the new version includes some great features that should have been there all along. the fact that it's free is awesome, considering it's most widely used by poor college students. in my opinion, this app is useful enough to donate to. thanks a lot for a great app!

Wow. What a great start to the year for laptop users. I can use this for teaching, never mind studying, and wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't useful for other tasks as well. Perhaps there might be an option for separately saved project files in the future?

Anyway, loads of scope for this already and a broad selection of note taking & review options, graphs and so on, along with it. Excellent.

This is a great app for students. It is fairly simple, and could use the addition of some features, but overall, it is the best freeware homework app that I have used. The hilight of this app is its developer. I had a quirky problem with the software, so I emailed the developer. He was extremely responsive, and was able to fix my problems. When I sent the first email asking for help, I recieved a reply in fifteen minutes, a rarity for software support. All subsequent email (About 5 or 6) were answered with the same speed. Some features I would like to see are: Widget Improvements, Color coded assignments based on whether they are due tomorrow due today, late or another type. Other welcome additions would be A button to send the assignments as a note to your iPod, An imporved way to add and edit courses, and an option to hide assignments when they are marked as completed. Overall, a very nice app, with a great, responsive developer who is constantly adding features to his software.

However good or bad the software itself is, it cannot be denied that that is one of the finest screenshots ever devised.

Great program.....I like the idea behind it, and really want to use it, but there's a box that pops up in the background everytime saying that it "Could not run the script because of a disk error."
