This app cured me of my awful pack-a-day PostIt note habit! My entire life revolves around structured to-do lists as well as freeform brainstorming sessions, and Listz handles all of that...it is almost *too* flexible as I haven't used half the features probably. I love the many different states (new, cancelled, pushed out, info-only) that you can assign as I like to cross off tasks but not necessarily have them disappear entirely. In that way, Listz mimics a traditional notebook, without taking up so much room. Oh yeah the widget is pretty cool too.

I've only been playing around with this for a short time, but I find the interface to be confusing and distracting. Too many things moving around, and way too much going on visually. I do like the side tab metaphor which is well executed in other programs such as Notetaker and Notebook, but I don't like the way the selected tab moves to the vertical top of the application. Other things just make no sense, such as "Burn To Disc" in the file menu.

The application itself is very modal in some respects and it's not clear how to change things (for example the backgrounds) with out having to consult the documentation. A common palette/inspector that contains all the setting for tasks and pages would be better then having separate modal dialogs.

I also don't like how it's always going on the net to download backgrounds, categories and other items and the progress windows float above all other windows in the OS.

Virtually note of the Apple Interface Guidelines are followed by this application which more feels like a flash/apollo application then a regular cocoa app. The application seems stable and hasn't crashed.

It's also expensive for the limited functionality that it provides. Users are either going to love this application or hate it.

Looks nice -- but unfortunately the trial of 2 weeks is not adequate. After trying it months ago once or twice, there's now no way to see any of the new changes, since demo is disabled. If you don't want to extent the demo, at least consider renewing it everytime you post a significant update so people can continue to try it and have a chance at reviewing the new features in order to make a purchasing decision.

Also, if I remember correctly when testing it originally -- there was no nesting of to-do items. Is this still the case? If so, I would recommend considering an outliner function -- for it to be truly useful for project management, and be on par with other apps in the genre, like Mori, Circus Ponies NoteBook, and NoteTaker, to name a few.

Downloaded it. Mounted the disk image. Copied the app. Launched it. "Your trial-period for Listz has now expired."

Gosh, does't the time fly by?

It might have been fun but now I'll never know.

Hi, thank you for alerting us to this. We are looking into it now. We are very sorry for any inconvenience.

It is possible that the download link posted here was from the 1.1 beta 1 which would have expired on 15th. It was replaced with 1.1 beta 2 which expires on the 22nd.

However, we take these reports very seriously and will make sure this problem doesn't occur in the upcoming 1.1 retail release.

Many thanks for taking the time to post!

I am most impressed with the response of this vendor to the bug I reported a few days ago (inappropriate and inaccurate display of a notification that the trial period had expired). Furthermore, the vendor moved very quickly to place support and contact links on their web page (and to their credit there was a feedback menu entry within the application).

Also, the program appears at first glance to be useful while also being sort of fun. It appears that this vendor is responsive and genuinely commited to this product. That is certainly promising. I'll add a review after the holiday.

The demo program expired overnight not in 2 weeks. So I have no idea how good this is. Perhaps I never will. When I went to their web page there was no contact info, address, or phone number. Just a button to buy. Press that and they ask for ALL OF YOUR info, of course. Who could design a page that divulges NOTHING of the vendor at all, yet hopes to separate your money from you for a product you can't test and evaluate.

Would it be so hard to provide CONTACT INFO and maybe a SUPPORT page? You could even consider (gasp!) a FEEDBACK page someday.

Wait a minute. To be fair, there is a feedback menu item in the program. And the program still seems to run despite the earlier dialog telling me that it had expired and that now I have to buy.

So it looks lioke an obscure bug in their time-out module. But everything I said about their web page goes. Vendors should be easy to contact and we should know who we are buying stuff from.

Hi,

If you have a minute, check the website again... this developer is very responsive to feedback, and the website now has some direct links for reporting bugs and contacting the developer for other issues.
