After demoing for a few days I really like this application but i would like to know if it is still supported. I get an error when I try the developers site link.


Any Ideas? I see the developer has responded in the past.

You can quick acces all your events and even create new ones from within Pluto without opening iCal :-))

Seems cool for the little I have used it... I just wish there were a way to quickly access a calendar without opening iCal or making a new todo etc.... to just quickly take a look at a date while on the phone or whatever.... possibly even showing time/date in the menubar instead of the checkmark symbol (that would allow me to turn off the system date/time and save a little menubar real estate ;-) It could also make coffee and massage my neck when needed lol

If that's all you need, not a full GTD app, check out MenuCalendarClock: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/14351/menucalendarclock-ical

Mac-wise I love the iCal integration this one offers. But how do I get those tasks with me on the iPhone in some reasonable way? Are there third party apps that taps into the iCal tasks?

Needless to say I find it totally weird Apple has not included a basic todo app on the iPhone.

I am working on touch version of Pluto at high pressure


Can't wait to see the phone version, this developer makes fantastic apps!

I've been working with it since version 2.

It has become my main task manager. I switched from omnifocus. 100% compatible with David Allen's Getting Things Done.

What I really love is its ease of use. No unnecessary features you love to see on the feature list but never use in real life.

Can't wait to see the iPhone integration (that is the missing star).

Wonderful work Michael!!!

Nice little helper, love that design and the ability to work on the screen using the menubar.

Michael, any blog-related freebies of the pro-version available for promoting via my blog? Would be nice.

Keep on good working, nice at all!!!

Best wishes,

Shortcut will be build in in a next version :-)

It crashes? Could you please send me the log file and try it with a "clean/empty" Calendar Title?
