The A list

Keep track of your to-do list with this intuitive program.

Veedid Desktop To-Do List Free Edition is a simple program that allows users to create interactive, printable to-do lists. It's not perfect, but it's a viable option for users who need a basic to-do list with a few extra features.

The program's interface is plain, with a handful of intuitive buttons and menus that contain its major features. We found it quite easy to add items to the list, and we especially liked that users can add sub-items to each task; under "Do laundry," for example, we noted that we needed to pretreat a shirt. These subitems can be collapsed and expanded, allowing users to view details only when needed. We also liked that the program offered various ways to sort the list, including a drag-and-drop functionality that made it easy to reorder items. Generally, the program was easy to use, although some features turned out to be for the paid version of the program only; we couldn't, for example, set due dates or reminders. And we're not sure what was up with the feature that supposedly allows users to e-mail tasks; clicking on that menu item didn't do anything, and we couldn't find any mention of the feature in the built-in Help file. Overall, however, we found Veedid Desktop To-Do List Free Edition to be both easy to use and practical.

Veedid Desktop To-Do List Free Edition is free, but not all of the features work in the free version. The program installs without issues but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
