TaskPaper is a simple yet elegant task management application for OS X.
I have always proclaimed pen and paper as being the best tools for managing my to-do list. I carry around a notepad and make notes and cross off items as the day drags on. Can TaskPaper change my opinion?
TaskPaper takes a “get things done” approach to managing your tasks. You can only create four different items within TaskPaper – a project, a list, notes, and tags. Once you master these basic functions, you have mastered the app. That’s how simple it is to use TaskPaper.
TaskPaper is normally priced at $29.99 but it is available in the AppSumo Productivity bundle for only $15. The bundle also includes Vitamin-R, Arrange, and Backblaze Online Backup. Purchased individually, these apps would normally cost $66!
You can synchronize tasks made through the desktop app with your iPhone through their iPhone app, and you can also synchronize online through SimpleText.ws. The online synchronization allows you to access your tasks through any web browser by using your Google account.
So, the important question. Is TaskPaper a better solution than pen and paper?
After using TaskPaper for a mere two hours, I say yes. I will never spill coffee on TaskPaper. I will never accidentally bin TaskPaper. I can not sync my pen and paper lists. If I forget to bring my notepad to work, it’s not the end of the world.
