DoItNow! is a simple, natural-language todo list and alarm clock. Creating tasks can't be any simpler - just type it into the text box, and DoItNow! should automatically parse the to-do info from your input, using natural language.
It sits silently on your menubar, and lets you set tasks, enable notifications for each tasks, and even uses text-to-speech functionality to read out tasks for you.
Great for day-to-day tasks, or even long-term alarms, DoItNow! can be used to suit the needs of anyone who needs help managing their tasks.
What's New in Version 1.1
Better 10.6 support (fixes crashing issues)
Just a little more...
It works. I set an alarm, It goes off, on time if my mac is awake. I set the alarm to open an app or a file, and it happens. I had one alarm that was supposed to go off 4 hours ago, howeve I wasn't home and my PowerBook was asleep, so that alarm didn't fire until about about 20 minutes ago, even though I've been on the computer for 3 hours. Odd, still better late than never. It would be great if the alarms would appear as soon as my Mac is awakened.
I'd love a repeating alarm function, with flexibility for x number of hours, days, weeks, months, etc., weekends, weekdays, and a variable length snooze would make this an app I'd consider paying for. For free, it's pretty good. I like the Geordon's suggestions as well.
I just downloaded this application. So far, it seems pretty good and I've been able to create tasks and set the alarms... The only thing that I don't like about this app. is how I can't edit the tasks. For instance, I wanted to go back to edit the details or change the time to something else, but I can't seem to do so. Instead, I have to delete it and make a new one if I want it to be more current. But overall, I like it!
Good first step
It does exactly what it is supposed to do: It pops up a message on your screen at a predetermined time and speaks the message that you input (e.g. "Time to pick up the kids"). However, I would like some option to have alternate alert sounds beside just the text-to-speech. Another interesting possibility would be to have a "snooze" button for more "fuzzy" time alerts.
