Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
*NOTE* If the app looks like it isn't opening, check the menu bar at the top of your screen for the little ruby red shoes. It is controlled from the menu bar.
Toto is a dead simple to-do list manager for the Mac and iPhone.
Managing your to-do list shouldn't get in the way of completing your tasks. Toto tries to solve that problem.
New in 2.0:
TotoSync, Toto for the desktop and Toto Touch, for the iPhone, can now talk to eachother. This lets you keep your list up to date no matter where you are.
so easy!! but really buggy :(
This is the best to do list I've ever had, and I've tried a LOT of them. It doesn't get in the way or become distracting and it's very easy to use. There's nothing extra like priorities or due dates or things I don't use. Idk what it has to do with the wizard of oz, but whatever.
however… it's really frustrating sometimes because of all the bugs. Lately the options at the top of the drop down list (like add, add group, etc.) have check marks next to them, and if I restart the app everything gets a checkmark and I have to uncheck everything. I can't get rid of the check marks on the options menu. It often shows an incorrect number, and sometimes when I open the app the groups don't even show up. It's a great idea but it's often kind of irritating. I still use it every day though.
Also, a few tasks that I deleted won't go away!! It's so annoying!
Simple and Effective
It's super simple to use and yet very effective. It reminds me of what I would write if I was simply making a to-do list on paper, which is why I like it. You just input different tasks using a very user friendly interface (if you can even call it that) and an icon in your menu bar tells you the number of tasks you have. Once you've completed something, you just click that task to mark it as done (so satisfying!).
I'm currently studying for the bar so I really like the group feature- where you can make a "parent" task and add tasks related to that. For example: I create the group "Evidence" and then under Evidence I'll add "make outline" and "do practice questions" which is helpful to keep things organized.
Simple and Elegant
It's really a pleasure to use an app that doesn't try to do too much. In fact, it is so minimalist, that unless you know, you at first don't know it's running. (Sad that the developer had to put that fact at the top of his app description, but....) The little ruby shoes up top, together with the little number (badge of not-yet-completed to-do's), reflects the same two shoes on your ipod/iphone/ipad. There's precious little room for writing your note to yourself, too, so it disciplines you to "keep it simple, stupid", rather than write a mini-essay.
Pleasant to use, but doesn't draw attention to itself. In other words, a time-saver, and not a time-waster. What more do you need?
