The very best thing about this GTD app - a feature I have yet to find in any similar app - is its "Reminder" function, which lets you configure the pop-up reminder to run repeatedly at intervals. This is GREAT for keeping you from forgetting to do something.

Unfortunately, TaskCard is kind of clunky to use, and not very flexible in making lists. For example, I'd like to be able to create a task item that has multiple paragraphs for short notes - I was unable to find a way to do this relatively simple thing (just implement Shift-Return for this, problem solved).

And it's highly unstable. It crashes frequently when doing simple things like adding a new card, adding a new task, or just opening or closing the interface.

I don't regret the purchase...supporting innovative, useful software is good. But it's not getting used because of its flaws. I look forward to future updates.

Version 1.6 now has Shift-Return for multiple line tasks.

Please send crash reports of crashes and I bet we find the cause and fix them for you and other users.

Re-review for 1.6: After four days of heavy usage, TaskCard seems much more stable - no crashes - and much friendlier to use. The new Shift-Return feature works as advertised, and the new tabs option is pretty cool. Very usable now, and still has the basic features that make is so useful.

Thumbs up!

Trial version is crashing often when I click one of the task windows in OS X 10.6.4, especially when trying to open a collapsed panel (100% chance of crash).

Aside from the crashing, this would be a nice app if it was a little more convenient to use. Would be nice to have some quick input methods using keyboard and/or context menu and an option to hide completed tasks.

Rating this a 2 because the crashing makes this app almost unusable. Otherwise, would rate 3 stars.

I'm always happy and eager to look at crash reports then resolve these issues for users. Crashing like that is certainly not normal so there must be something conflicting in your system.

I lik the concept, but the execution is not very good. About the only reliable way to add attachments to a task is through the menu item. Dragging and dropping did not work for me much at all (only 1 time in several dozens tries).

There're some other quirky behaviors with windows that you have to click on in just the right place in order to drag them around. The same goes if I want to move a task around.

Could be nice if it got rid of these behaviors.

Nice concept, but crashes on 10.6.1 while editing or working in demomode while adding tasks.
