Do It (formerly ToDo) is a small application to manage categorized to do lists. Each to do item can be linked with a file on your computer, a URL, such as the address of a website, or a contact from your address book. The linked item can be opened directly from the ToDo window. ToDo items can also include notes, priorities and deadlines, which can be set as reminders in iCal. ToDo is applescriptable, includes plugins for Address book to quickly set contact reminders and a plugin for Quicksilver to allow rapid creation of ToDo items from the Quicksilver interface. You can sync your ToDo lists on multiple computers using more...

Oh and I might add that Do It seems to run flawlessly on Snow Leopard 10.6.7.

Do It fits my needs better than any of the other similar apps that I have tried. It has more features than most it's size without getting bloated. Task catagories, three level priorities, built-in notice and click to add iCal event, and the ability to link to a file or url.

I don't need 10,000 different status' or the ability to break tasks down into steps, there are other apps for that like OmniOutliner or Task Coach. All I need is a reminder and Do It does this flawlessly for me.

Not much has been done with this lately. I still think it's a good app, but I still think it needs to be able to add our own custom statuses to it. Rather than just having high, medium and low priority.
For example: In Progress, Client Review, Completed, Ready to Bill, etc.

Is there any chance of multi-line support? I don't really like abbreviated, single-lined to-dos. Sometimes, I wish to write a whole sentence about what I have to do.

Also, the way in which the interface is done, isn't so good. The graphics stretch upon resizing the window. You can see this, by the way the rounded edges pull out the more you stretch it.

An option of some alternative skins would be nice, too.

I hope you can implement/fix these features.

Thanks,
onlyone-jc.

If you hover the cursor over the small box with three dots in it at the top, it will open a notes field.

Why have you changed the name to DoIt?

Sorry I just had to say that, look here why

The new name is indeed a homage, in part, to that story!

This is a cool little application. I had been searching for a way to display my iCal todos on my desktop. This doesn't quite do that, but it allows me to sort my todos more sensibly. Now I can stress more effectively about what I have to get done!

If you want your iCal info on the desktop take a look at iCalViewer: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/11500

Nice program, but be careful. It will install itself in your .Mac sync preferences pane. If you later decide to delete it, it is a pane to remove this application from the preferences list.

Could you provide more detail by what you mean by 'pain'? Perhaps some directions to minimize it.

Very nice piece of software, but requires you to fill in all fields when setting up a new to do, and overall seems to force you to do things a certain way.

Some recommendations: In creating links, drag and drop is nice, but for some links selecting through a dialogue box would be better. Within categories, I may like to set up folders. Also, you can only view one category at a time, but I may like to see all at once. Finally, a drop down menubar item would be a nice adition.
