CNET Editors' review
Busy users may need an efficient way to track their tasks. TodoPlus for Mac has all of the functions necessary for organizing to-dos, but the cluttered interface makes it difficult to use.
Download and installation of this free program completed quickly, as did initial set up. No technical support was available and the tutorial was of little help. After moving through the tutorial menus, TodoPlus for Mac began to slow the test computer down, lengthening the time spent switching between different menus. The program's main interface has a cluttered row of buttons along the top of the window. Users have a number of options, including creating new lists, importing text files, and displaying as HTML, along with additional functions for prioritizing lists. Once lists are created, users can organize them into file folders based on categories or in any other way the user sees fit. All of these functions perform adequately, but the program's overall slow functioning and inefficient menu diminish its utility.
TodoPlus for Mac functions adequately, but its poor design and heavy CPU usage make it less useful than other, Web-based list applications.

"It's ugly as hell and ununderstandable like windoz!"
Version: TodoPlus 2.000
It remembers us how lucky we are using Mac!
It's a shock, a nightmare!
It's hardly to believe that such a... disgusting 'thing' was thought to work on a proper Operating System born after 1984.
Not to mention the time needed to just START to understand how it works!
A jump in the past and a side jump then, from the good to the evil.
"Great productivity app"
Version: TodoPlus 2.000
There is nothing superfluous.
Didn't mention problems with this program.
It helps me much with my working time management.
"Perfect For What I Want!"
Version: TodoPlus 1.541
- Simple to Use
- Basic, but still full of options
None that I have found
I was looking for a 'To Do' tool that doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, because I don't need or want them. I want a tool that simple lets me create a list, with sublists, and this is exactly what I wanted it.
It was easy to set up and I was able to start using it right away because it's pretty intuitive. And it's free! Thank you so much for this simple tool.
