Timely to-do

Get basic to-do list features with this attractive program.

Many of us spend the vast majority of our time on our computers, so it makes sense to have a to-do list that lives on the computer as well. Swift To-Do List Lite is a simple but capable utility that can help you stay on top of the things you need to get done.

The program's interface is attractive and very easy to navigate. To add a new task, users simply enter a title, select a priority level and task type (if desired), and choose a due date. The program has plenty of options for reminding users of upcoming tasks, with alerts that can be scheduled to go off at any time prior to the task's due date. The program has a space for users to enter notes about each task as well, and we started to get excited about the Attachments tab, which we figured would let users attach relevant documents to their tasks. Unfortunately, this feature--as well as the ability to set recurring tasks--is available only in the full version of the program. We did like the fact that the program lets users set customizable hot keys and arrange their tasks in tree hierarchies. The program's Help file is well-written and thorough, with plenty of screenshots. Overall, Swift To-Do List Lite definitely isn't the most full-featured to-do list we've seen, but it's a nice choice if you're only looking for basic features.

Swift To-Do List Lite installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
