A cloud-based task management utility, New York Minute for Mac belongs to a range of applications created to synchronize to-do lists among devices that run different operating systems. It works as advertised but may leave you wanting more.


Light and snappy: New York Minute loads quickly and doesn't eat many system resources. You can keep it running while using all your usual apps without any noticeable impact on the overall system performance.

Highly intuitive: Given this app's minimalistic user interface, you can easily figure out how to make it work for you. The toolbar has only two buttons: one for creating a new task and one for creating a category.

Works with Snow Leopard: This app runs even on the relatively old Mac OS X 10.6.


No alerts or alarms: New York Minute only serves as a common interface for devices that need to access the same task lists. It would have been more useful if it included the ability to set alarms or notifications for tasks.

Browser-based task managers could be better: You can find many browser-based alternatives to this application. With similar Web apps, you don't need to install anything, nor do you have to worry about upgrades.

Instruktion account needed: To be able to synchronize your to-do lists, you need to get an Instruktion account through a site different than the official New York Minute site, though maintained by the same team.

Bottom Line

If you need a task management application that can access a task list created on a Windows computer or Android device, New York Minute for Mac can be an option. However, what this application offers isn't really that compelling. You could be better off with Web-based task management apps that don't require you to download and install anything.
