Tasks is OK. I'd prefer something that would work better with iCal, but the worthwhile pickings seem to be rather slim in this category. My main gripe is with support: The developer is incredibly cranky, and he refuses to touch any support issue he feels that he can blame on someone else's software, regardless of the advertised functionality of Tasks. I don't recommend Tasks for anyone who considers himself a power user or who expects to receive support on a product he's spent good money on.

Responding to 'Anonymous', I have to disagree with his description of Alex's support. I don't know what experience Anonymous has had with Alex or King Design, but I have been a user of Tasks since 1.x and over three years I have encountered more than one support issue. In each case, Alex responded quickly and did not pass the buck. He even walked me through restoring a MySQL database which I had improperly backed up -- hardly a problem with Tasks, and what I call excellent support. Just recently I reported a problem with icalendar integration and Alex had diagnosed the problem and sent a patch within a day or so, even though the issue was far from critical. High marks from me for both Tasks and for King Design's support.

I'm not sure how this can be considered a "lightweight" app. Sure, it is Web based, but it requires Apache (comes with OS X) and at least PHP 4 and mySQL 4, each of which are about 30 megs compressed. I love the looks of it and what it looks to be able to do, but you have to load and configure two other apps (PHP and mySQL) and a Web server and get them working together before this can even be loaded. The developer does appear to offer decent support to those who have some systems background, but also doesn't appear to be aiming for anybody but a fairly highly experienced user base. I use other Java and even some X Windows Unix apps and have a fair amount of experience myself, but the demands and complexity of this app are daunting. I'm still thinking about it. Cost? A TRIFLE considering what it does.

Seems that many people install this on their ISP web server which already have all these things installed and configured.

Even on a Mac. Check out MAMP (available on MacUpdate). It's a one-click, non-install package which contains the latest versions of Apache, MySQL and PHP.

User for just under a year with Tasks (single user edition) and this is the perfect solution to tracking my work loads and delivery dates. The price is perfect, and the upgrade price was a steal ($8). I don't think there is anything that allows me to: - Checking from my PDA - Track which files are needed for deployment - Upload wireframes for future reference - Track billable vs. non-billable - Reoccuring - Daily morning reminders The other task managers (cocoa-based) don't even hold a candle to this app.

This is an incredible useful application. One of the best "web applications" I have ever seen. I am looking into possibilities for combining this personal todo manager with a bugtracker, like phpbugtracker.

The 1.8.6 version is not time limited, it just isn't as good as 2.0. :)

I am VERY new to PHP and MySQL. I was looking through the installation notes, and its says Mac OSX server. I only have the client edition. Currently on 10.3.3 I would ver badly like to implement this on my personal Machine. I am going to be setting up an Xserve in the future for file management (I *can* do that) but if I can get this to run on my own personal Mac...if it works like everyone is ranting about..I don't think I would have any hold ups for having my offices pick up the pro version...any takers to help a PHP and MySQL NEWB?? Thanks.

It works just fine on the client machine... always has. I have used it for some time now. I think one reason it may have said that is because the client doesn't come with PHP pre-installed. You can get the version of PHP you will need here: http://www.entropy.ch/software/macosx/php/ Good luck1

This is a great web based application with a really well executed front end that actually makes you want to use it. Plus it's in PHP which makes it easy to tweak if one desires to do so. Tasks has made me more productive and has paid for itself in no time. Can't wait for future versions. It's well worth donating to this project.

Not surprising how it paid for itself in no time, seeing as it's free.

See that part about, "It's well worth donating to this project"? In English the word "donate" means, "to give something voluntarily". In this case that something is money. Money is "worth" something. By saying you got your money's worth, in a situation where you donated some money, you are saying that the "worth" the program provides exceeds the "worth" of the money you donated. Kind of a complicated concept, I know, but wait until you get into middle school... by the end of the seventh grade you should have the concept firmly in grasp.

Wonderful application! I use it constantly. Everyone I work with is terribly impressed by it and we're desperately waiting (patiently, mind you) for a possible multi-user version. Quick note to the developer: I've been using this long enough, and visiting your site enough, to know how you feel about the multi-user support. As an individual, I'd happily donate (and intend to). However, I can also state with a great deal of confidence that many companies would be willing to purchase a multi-user version of your task list.
