Lightweight lists

Create basic to-do lists with this simple program.

Using productivity software can be a great way to increase efficiency, but all too often, software that is designed to save time ends up being too complex to really be efficient. That's not the case with Daily To-Do List, though; this simple program lets users create basic to-do lists without a lot of confusing or unnecessary features.

Daily To-Do List has a simple interface that's easy to navigate. Users simply choose the appropriate day from a calendar and then add their tasks. Each task can be assigned to a specific category and marked with its priority level. Users can also set reminders for any time during the day that the task is due, and tasks can be reordered within the list in any way that makes sense to the user. Each task also provides ample space for notes, letting users keep important information associated with each task close at hand. For easy portability, to-do lists--either single or multiple days--can be printed or exported as HTML. The program's built-in Help file is surprisingly well-written and thorough, with plenty of screen shots. We have definitely seen to-do lists that offer more features, such as more flexible reminders, progress meters, the capability to assign tasks to different people, and so-on. But not everyone needs all of that, and we think that Daily To-Do List is a great choice for anyone looking for a basic, straightforward to-do list without a lot of complex bells and whistles.

Daily To-Do List installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Daily To-Do List 2.35. The trial version is limited to 21 days.
