Onlytasks for Mac8.2

Manage your daily tasks in an easy and comfortable way.

What is Onlytasks for Mac

Onlytasks allows you, with little effort, to sort, classify, and prioritize your tasks easily and conveniently. In addition to the book where it is situated and its title, each task can have due date, notes, and tags; this allows you to focus on tasks and eliminate unnecessary and superficial information.

Onlytasks for iPhone allows synchronization with an Evernote account so you can also edit your tasks from Evernote and always have a backup of your data.

Onlytasks can help save you time and organize your life with an easy and uncomplicated to use system. It is so convenient you'll enjoy staying more organized and look forward to working with it frequently!

Enter and prioritize your tasks, and later sort, find, and classify with no great effort on your part.

Tasks and notes are put into folders or category holders we call "NOTEBOOKS". Inside the Notebooks categories, you create tasks and enter a name/title/label for each one. Every task in your notebook can have optional dates due, tags, and can be marked with a STAR to stand out and be pre-sorted in the "STARS" folder in the STATUS side bar.

There is a flexible notes section where you can type in or paste in several lines of text. The notes section expands as you need more space and is user-adjustable to go to the side or bottom of the main window.

Onlytasks is designed to help you drill down and focus, is adaptable to work differently for different people the way they think, and it is not over complicated to use.

Onlytasks for OS X allows synchronization with an Evernote account so you can also edit your tasks from Evernote and always have a backup of your data. (Look at http://www.bitgeenius.com/onlytaskseng.html for information about keywords that Onlytasks used to identify data in Evernote notes).

Onlytasks for OS X allows partial synchronization with iCal, you can submit your tasks to iCal and create events related to them. These tasks and events remain synchronized in the title and date. You can also choose that when complete a task in Onlytasks delete its event in iCal. You can send a task to iCal through menu Edit -> Send task(s) to iCal or add the appropiate button to your toolbar.

And if you have an iOS device you can use Onlytasks for iOS and have your tasks on your Mac and your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad perfectly synchronized (using an Evernote account).

Very practical, I love my Evernote and like keeping it as a hub on my Mac and Android phone and using the Apple tools for tasking (Calendar/Reminders). This is the perfect addition for me. Very clever.

The developer continues to make frequent changes and I've had several emails back and forth over the last few months. He seems sincere in his desire to try to make the program work for as many ideas as possible -- this is not to be dismissed too lightly these days -- many developers are very set in their ways or don't get back or take any suggestions. He is also polite. The issues under 10.6.8 seem to have been resolved but I have also moved on to 10.7 -- and the program works very well with Lion. I find myself using it all the time. And I've looked at other products but still come back to this one for daily stuff. It doesn't do every last thing -- but more complex applications can be used when needed -- this is very helpful for basic day to day and I actually put it to use day to day -- a big plus, no program as nice or fancy as they may be does you much use if you don't actually continue to use it. There are many of these to-do and task managers out there, but spend some time with this one -- you might be pleasantly surprised and find it very proactive like I did over time.. It is not dirt cheap, but for me the cost is well offset by the fact it gets put to work on a regular basis. Reliable software, works so good I use it like second nature, a developer that is responsive and works along with you -- that's a A in my book.

Those under 10.6.8 -- watch out. If you have a notebook with tasks and delete it, then try to rename another notebook you can experience a crash. I was hoping this newest version would have corrected but the bug is still there. The developer seems to have trouble detecting issues on non 10.7 system which is unfortunate but still he should not release the software with a known bug in it in my opinion. Other than that I really much like this -- not too overloaded with features -- with this you tend to actually use it. Very intuitive -- no long read of a manual necessary you can get right to working with it from day one hour one. I use it for my day to day duties -- those get down and get dirty things we all must attend to. For more complex schedules I need to track I use The HIt List and for things like remembering to enter data into my diary or feeding the dogs on time I have iMonTime flash me a notice on my screen -- so I am a three application user.

First of all - it works as advertised. It is worth the money, if you, like me, use Evernote on daily basis and switch between Mac and Windows. It is easy to manage tasks via OnlyTasks (I set up two additional Notebooks for this purpose - GTD and Done). True, it could be prettier, but it is not to looka at, it is to get the stuff done. Overall 4 stars

I must concur. The reviews with higher ratings are not telling the whole story. This product would be greatly improved by a document on how the ideal user sets up their evernote account, and because Evernote does not dictate how each individual relates to their service, OnlyTasks will make little to no sense out of the box. More likely it will create disarray. I'm giving it more than one star for innovation and stability, but after bringing all these issues up over a year ago while still not witnessing any communication to help set up or on the overall philosophy of the app, I had to chime in with a review. Egrelist on the other hand, does not take for granted that people might be unfamilar with GTD or utilize some other task management program. Rather than correlate notes into tasks, which is what Onlytasks does (and again might be meaningless to most people who don't consider notes in Evernote to be synonymous with Tasks), Egrelist correlates Tasks with Tasks, and the syncing has become quite reliable. You then associate only those tags and notebooks that complement what you're trying to do with your tasks in Egrelist.

The cost for this application is pretty steep. Mac interface could be better. Egretlist and Nozbe on iPhone go beyond but Onlytask is simple and easy. Although there is a way to sync notes with Evernote in both directions, it's not native support and I hope this will be added in the future. Tip: to synchronize with Evernote, you need to put a special string (.OTONotes.) which you are going to put BEFORE and AFTER the text in the Evernote note. It works with plain text only, make sure you copy whole string without the quotes).... ".OTONotes." BEFORE AND AFTER TEXT .OTONotes.

Thanks Escribano. I have just downloaded the B2 from your web. The font panel in preferences works fine. Thank you. I have another suggestion, it is about the bottom panel for notes. Could we see on the right side of the screen ?. I do not know if this is complex or not, if you have several tasks on the view, a side panel allow to concentrate better on the task you are working with. In addition, in a future you could split the side panel to show notes and linked files. In general, the application results very easy to use, looks nice, it is stable and fast. I´ll be using it during next weeks on a daily basis, so I will send you a message if I miss something. Thanks again & Feliz Navidad y Feliz 2011

Got much better since I tried it last. Not sure why it needs to put notes between tags (as such.. OTONotes) but it is a minor issue. I'll try to see if switching to Evernote as my main note gathering AND ToDo lister will be comfortable in regular use over time using this.. that would be nice since I have Evernote on my Android phone.

The Evernote-bridging idea is a good concept.. EXCEPT this does nothing more than creating notes...with a due date (Woopdeedoo) in Evernote.. er.. and those dates are 12.14.1969 in my attemps.. All the dates say that... ! ROFLMAO Go figure.. all my notebooks/notes have correct dates except the entries from this weird useless app.. 1969 lol This feels more like a Beta 0.031 than a 3.1 version. AppCleaner to the rescue lol

Hi Juan, My spanish is rusty, so take these experiences with a grain of salt: Tried to contact you through your own site. It's not obvious where any contact or request form would be, and as a resort I'm making this critique for the general viewership to see. I like the whole idea of this app greatly, with the big assumption that it does anything remotely resembling what I think it's supposed to do. What I had hoped it would do, based on its description, is to sync native tasks, say from iCal or some other GTD package, with evernote notes that contain checkboxes, and vs versa sync tasks to evernote checkboxes. Sort of like Egrelist for the iPhone, but with an additional synchronization to iCal. Your summary clearly states, "Onlytasks synchronizes tasks on your Mac using your Evernote account." Even with the help menu, I can not for the life of me figure out what this app is supposed to do. And yes, I've synced it and pulled up the help screen visual. If anything, I strongly suspect that my tags in evernote are now completely scrambled because of it. What are you calling "tasks?" I get a list of my notes in Onlytasks in no rational or obvious selection. Even if I have checkboxes in my notes, the are not obviously synced to the "tasks" list views in Onlytasks. In fact, everything in evernote is listed, even if it has no bearing on being a task. What am I to do with this stream of "tasks" after they are in Onlytasks? There are no checkboxes, no indication as to a where they should be moved or acted upon. Does it sync my iCal tasks with evernote? If so, does it make checkboxes for them, does it put them in separate notes? Make lists based on calendars? Can you prioritize a particular notebook? How do the calendars translate to Evernote? How do priorities translate to evernote? If you were to implement a projects-based task list, how would that export back to iCal? Is it true sync? Do my tasks in iCal update with additions to evernote? How does that correlate to my calendars? Do I need Onlytasks open after the sync is complete? Is it meant to be a client or simply a conduit to expedite the sync?

A couple of suggestions: Subtasks, or items under headings When a task or notebook is created, title could already be selected so you could just type the name without having to click in it first. Press Enter on the keyboard rather than having to click on OK.
