TaskMagic has been removed from the developer site. I suspect this might be because there is already an app out there called Task Magic, or maybe just because his app was too simple an app in such a crowded market - especially considering that it appears from the screenshot to do no more than Anxiety, only not free and with a much larger and needlessly complicated interface.

The developer has chosen a route whereby potential customers have to chose if they want this application based only on a video tour, there is no trial option. Based soley on the very poor video, I can only agree with previous comments/reviews.

TaskMagic appears to offer very basic capabilities, I'd go so far to say that I would jot tasks down in Tex Edit rather than purchase this.

To the Developer: I'd strongly recommend you re-do the video, please pan out!

Perhaps you might want to re-consider the price and providie a trial.

You are in a very competetive market and right now TaskMagic may be detrimental to your other applications and your credibility as a developer.

I think this has to be a joke. Automatic update checking and - stop the press! - a preferences window as key features! Twenty bucks for someone's first half-day experiment with Xcode. Good grief.

An app I have to buy before I can have a look at it? Ridiculous! That so called video tour is capable of making me sea sick as it is a nervous panning over some GUI at a high zoom level. Felt 80 % of the video ist about how you invoke the preferences of the app. In the preferences the only available setting seems to be that for automatic updates. The video not even shows the menu bar, so one has simply no idea, what the app could do! From what you can see one can easily guess that this junk's task management capabilities are not even anywhere near of what you find in iCal.
This is not a shameless rip off. This is just paltry.

Please, do not rate the application down, based on just a video. The video is from the 0.2b3 (beta) stages of the application, and we are currently in the process of re-recording and creating the new video. Fair-do, this probably should have been done before the release, but we've had a lot of people asking for the release, before the video.

Thanks for your comments, and I urge you to reconsider your thoughts after you've seen the version 1.0 video. (You can see that the version in the video is different to this version by having a look at the screenshot.)

I shall not rate this app only on a video? What other possibilities do I have - apart from buying it? You not even communicating that this is beta. I had a look at the screenshot. The fields in the Task Editor are not even named. I won't wait for any other video. I recommend Things or OmniFocus instead. They cost more but at least you can try them before buying them.

I totally agree with the previous comment. Why should I pay for something I cannot try when there are so many apps on the market with similar goals? (Btw, a video does NOT substitute a trial period.)

IMHO, not a very smart move from the devs.

Is this software some kind of joke?
No trial whatsoever... a video tour that was done by an amateurish blind child... WTF... With all the available tools to capture an edit screencasts you would think that people would be able to deliver nice tutorials... This one only gave me one thing: a headache...
Hilarious!

Are you kidding me? This app tries to compete in a crowded market and expects me to pay $20 based on a video tour? I would like to give the app a fair rating, but I am not about to pay for the ability to do so.
