What's new in TaskInsight

Version 3.17:
  • Timeline Task Layout - Specify the arrangement of task text in relation to the task time bar in one of the following positions: Above, Below, Left, Right, or Inside. The position will also be adjusted based on the visibility of the start and end dates. Task Layout lets one select the optimum layout given the situation. Using the Right position tightens up the vertical layout so one can view more tasks in the view. Depending on the zoom level of the timeline, one may easily choose a different task layout.
  • Use the Cycle Task Layout command to switch between the various layouts in the Timeline view. Cycle Task Layout is in the View > Timeline Task Layout menu, keyboard shortcut Control Option Command L.
  • New keyboard shortcut:
  • Show End Dates in Timeline – Shift Option Command E
  • Bug fixes for dynamic appearance handling (Light or Dark) of List view background color and other interface items.

So, no demo… I am sorry but productivity is such a personal thing that a demo is really required. I wonder why the developer doesn't provide one. Hmm, let's look in the FAQ at the dev's website: "Is there a demo version or a video demo of TaskInsight?" "No. Imaja would like to produce a TaskInsight demo version and a video demo, but for now the features page and the large slide show is the best presentation. Almost all of the features, views, buttons, menus, controls, etc. are displayed there. Please check out the large slide show in combination with the TaskInsight Help for more details on the features in TaskInsight." Well, OK, at least the developer "would like to produce a demo" – so what's the problem? No time? Technical issues? …or something to hide?! There's more to read in the FAQ: "How stable is TaskInsight? Does it crash?" "While crashes have been reported in earlier versions, Imaja worked immediately and diligently to resolve crashes. The current version 3.2.1 has no known crash bugs. We recommend reporting crashes to support@imaja.com for the best results. Please do not report crashes on the Customer Reviews page of the Mac App Store; instead, report them via E-mail support below." Now this is one of the funnier questions I've ever read in a dev's FAQ, I am surprised he answered – actually this is exactly one of the reasons why we need a demo. So, dear developer, if prospective customers read about crashes of your app; these are a thing of the past, now everything is perfect. I see. And you don't want your customer's to write about crashes in their reviews. I see. Well then, let's read some of those MacAppStore's reviews: "has crashed on me 5 times in the last 10 minutes" "keeps crashing on me. frustrated." "Extremely Disappointing" "This is a joke – right?" Umm… I see. I guess I know why you can't provide a demo: bad for your business. You write: "The features page and the large slide show is the best presentation" – yes, probably so… If I am wrong, you can easily prove me so: by delivering a demo.

I bought this app today and spent several hours learning it well enough to put a couple of task sets into it. It does have a learning curve as it is not what it looks like (a Gantt chart with tasks). It is instead a task list with Gantt-like display option. Once you wrap your mind around that and don't try to list every item in sequence but by priority or date (using it like a task list, in other words, not a Gantt chart) then it gets a lot easier. It appealed to me because of that timeline display feature and the ability to track multiple lists at once (each with its own timeline display if desired), which make it easier to track deadlines coming as well as shifting priorities. I have sometimes previously used a Gantt chart for tracking to do and other items, so recognize the shortcomings of a Gantt for that as well. Use the right tool for the task (this for lists of prioritized to do items, a Gantt chart tool for project requirements and status in a sequential display), and both will work well for you. I like the added clarity that this approach gives to task lists, and it does do what it says it will in a way I haven't seen any other do. It's a fine product at a reasonable price for what it does and no I have no connection with the developer except as customer. Understand what you're getting into and you won't be disappointed.

Are you serious? You want $10 of my hard-earned money without offering me a demo? Even some of the $1 apps out there have conceded the need for such a thing. When you bought your last car, did you buy it without a test drive?
