So here's the thing: This is such a new way of doing tasks and projects that I do not want to spend $25 up front, just to find out it doesn't meet my needs. Sorry. I'm sure this might be a fine app, but I cannot risk shelling out this kind of cash without working a demo first. No Demo. No Sale.

I write for a living, I have umpteen mini projects on the go, and I'm also a visual person. The GTD approach is far too prissy for me, too much wasted energy (and too much of a distraction from what I should be doing).
With that in mind, I've literally tried every piece of project and todo software on Macupdate over the past ten years and couldn't settle on any of them.
Until now.
Daymap suits the way I work, holds all the info I need for my working day and in its present form (v2.1.1) it has just cleared up my desktop, and my head in just half an hour.
It's a lot like the web based TeuxDeux (TD), but that is twice the cost, paid year on year, with only marginal extra functionality.

Below this, WChiseler has posted a really good in depth review that covers all the functionality and wishlist bases, and all I can add is it would be nice to be able to change font and font colour just to jazz the screen up a bit, oh, and startup at login, that would be nice too..
I expect TD's ability to automatically move uncompleted tasks on to the following day might be a big ask, but that would be the icing on the cake for me.
I note some complaints further down the page about a demo version not being available, but the user video on the developers website was more than enough detail to help me decide to buy.
Nice, uncluttered software, doing what software should do. Make my working day easier.

(DayMap is now in version 2.) DayMap excels by offering big picture “Forest” view of your projects and your weekly/monthly schedule without losing sight of the individual “Trees” of each project and each day. The multi-column layout keeps everything from mingling into a long, overwhelming list. Features I find particularly helpful: ✓ column layout of projects +/- week/month schedule (EXCELLENT) ✓ subtasks ✓ view Calendar events, launch Calendar ✓ custom sort tasks for each day, including repeats (manual drag-and-drop) ✓ delete, reschedule repeat tasks individually (e.g. do 2 laundry loads Tuesday, instead of 1 each Monday & Tuesday, skip Wed.) ✓ text search semi-substitute for priority, tags, e.g. “!!” lists any task which contains “!!” in its title or notes ✓ show/hide a particular # days of completed items or none ✓ half/full screen support My wish list of app enhancements: - notifications/alerts - keyboard shortcuts: move to tomorrow, schedule Today, unschedule, navigation between columns - sort tasks & Calendar events: drag “Pick Up Dry Cleaning ” task after “8:00 AM - Meeting” and before “7:30 PM Restaurant Dinner” - subtler (grey?) “Scheduled” indicator — RED suggests priority, but neighboring tasks in the project list might be much more important but harder to schedule. - Day view / compact mode - enhanced repeats: every # days, every Mon, Wed, Fri, …, —ideally even: every # workdays - month filters: hide-repeating tasks, show only tasks which contain search field text - Android app & sync (or maybe import/export to Reminders for workaround sync) - maybe: auto re-sort an individual day, say alphabetically, while keeping manual sort option

While I really like DayMap (see my review below), I must say that I am startled about the recent design decision to colour the toolbar in light grey – it looks as if the window is inactive! That's really unnecessarily confusing and I wonder what the developer had in mind when coming up with an idea like that! (also strange: instead of icons we got flat buttons in the rounded shape of pre-Lion buttons)

I have tried many "todo" type apps and I have nearly always wound up not using them after awhile. I think DayMap might just be one that I will stick with. Here are some of the features that make me say this: - you can see all projects and items at once - you can drag and drop items from one project to another - you can drag and drop items from one day to another - system hotkey to add items on the fly - easy to use and learn - syncs with iCloud

Well this got to be the GTD app with the best UI concept ever. Actually I downloaded DayMap only because it was on sale, well, it looked interesting from screenshots and videos. I am a heavy OmniFocus user and didn't think I'd have much use for it. But now after trying, I find this app completely convincing, and ever since downloading I use it daily. As Actwolf described below, it's a brilliant UI concept, look and feel. And it has to be mentioned, while DayMap follows minimalist principles, projects can go surprisingly "deep", splitting up tasks into sub-tasks, sub-sub-tasks, sub-sub-sub-tasks (etc. etc. etc.). Of course, DayMap is no OmniFocus, so if you need something really complex, DayMap isn't for you. But even then it might prove useful as a companion app: I use DayMap for one specific part of my work-life and for that it serves me very well. DayMap has one killer feature for me: it shows recurring tasks in the calendar as multiple items, so for example you can have one task repeated from Tuesday to Friday and DayMap will show an entry for every day (Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday-Friday). Other apps (like OmniFocus) generate the next (repeated action) only after the first one is completed. This way, DayMapThis is ideal if you have tasks that take longer, and you want to work on a task every day a bit. So unlike the other to-do apps, you don't just get to see a frightening due date, but instead you see when you will work – more like with planing software. That is really great for motivation. Regarding the feature requests of other commentators here: Personally, I wouldn't need these, and with every new feature the developer runs risk of ruining the clean interface. "All in one place" is usually a way to get things cluttered. I hope the developer goes here his/her own way and won't sacrifice UI for features. This is not to say that there isn't anything to improve with this app, I see quite a few things where the developer could work on – before adding new features. Anyway, one more thing, it has to be said: at 13$ this really needs a demo version, and I find it rather mind-boggling that the developer doesn't provide one. DayMap is a well-done, polished app! I really have a hard time trying to understand that. Productivity is an individual thing, one has to be able to evaluate what works best for his/her needs. So, dear developer, it's very simple: if you don't want to offer a demo, you have to sell at 5$-8$. If you want to sell your app at 13$ you need to provide a demo. It is true, you can always find new customers by setting your app from time to time "on sale", but this is actually pretty unfair to those customers who payed full price.

This App could be much better if you could: 1. Change the font and font size of project names and tasks. (needed) 2. Assign time to the tasks (urgent) 3. Set reminders of your tasks (urgent) 4. Be able to send reminders to command center 5. Group projects and collapse the groups. For instance, have Personal Projects and Work Projects (not urgent.) 6. Sync with Reminders and iCal 7. Change the aesthetics/look of the app, more like a Mac app. You can check how iCal does to move from days, weeks and months and include views for them. 8. Drag and drop emails and link them on the app, more like, send an email to a task and have the app be able to link to the email. 9. Add more items to a projects, not just tasks, for instance if I work on a project, I have emails and contacts related to it. It would be very useful if I could have all in one place. I am willing to become a beta tester if the developer allows for it. I think this app has potential if the developers invests more time on it. For now, I don't think it is worth $12.99, it is more like a $9.99 app.

I like your suggestions. If the app had a better interface I would be tempted to switch and the ability to link to files related to projects would be very useful.
