Task Till Dawn for Mac's intuitive interface makes it easy to manage tasks and applications on a schedule, and its functionality makes it an impressive freeware option for many different needs.

After unzipping the app, Task Till Dawn for Mac opens to an unobtrusive window and welcoming user interface, making it easy to add new tasks and edit existing ones. The program's interface features five buttons, allowing users to create and run tasks, as well as edit and delete existing tasks. Clicking the new task button opens a dialog box displaying action, schedule extended settings, and error handling options. Users just name their task and click "Select" under actions to choose the file or folder required for the task. Clicking "Schedule" gives users specific time and date options for execution of new tasks. Users may also utilize extended settings to delay tasks, wait for tasks, execute the program in the background, always start a new instance, and input the maximum amount of executions for a task. Error handling makes it easy for users to specify what tasks should be initiated if an error occurs. After clicking "OK," tasks populate in the main window of the program and are easy to scroll through and edit. The program performs seamlessly; however, the lack of suitable Help materials is a noticeable oversight.

Task Till Dawn for Mac offers a free solution for Mac users scheduling and executing repetitive tasks, such as downloading e-mails or backing up documents. The program's ease of use and many options make it an excellent choice for application and task management.

What's new in version 2.2

Even though only the version number behind the dot has changed, this update is huge! In addition to new actions for checking the Internet connection, writing files, creating folders, comparing texts and much more, there are also a whole series of new events available. For example, tasks can now be started when volumes are inserted or drives are connected. It also introduces some new conversion options for variables.

In addition, the user interface has been improved in some places. The program settings now allow to specify what should happen when a task is double-clicked.

Of course the new version also contains several bug fixes. All changes can be found as usual in the version history in the program archive.
