Two Dogs Software has released TaskSurfer 1.0 (http://www.frostydogs.com/tasksurfer), a cloud-syncing task management application for Mac OS 10.6.x (“Snow Leopard”). It’s an US$39, flexible task manager that fits GTD or tag-based systems, but doesn’t force the casual user into a complicated workflow, says Two Dogs developer and founder Mike Stewart.
Because a project-based GTD style doesn’t suit everyone, TaskSurfer features a tag browser that lets the user focus on tasks that have been tagged with the user’s custom tags. Tags can be used for categories, time, locations, people, and anything that can be typed. The Tag Browser keeps it all sorted out.
Using Snow Leopard’s Core Location technology, tasks can be assigned to a location-based context, and tasks will be filtered as an Apple laptop moves from one location to the next. At home, office, or the coffee shop, TaskSurfer will show only the tasks appropriate for the current location.
TaskSurfer also provides the option to synchronize tasks with online task manager Toodledo. Tasks can be kept in-sync across Macs at home and office, and any device that supports syncing with Toodledo.
TaskSurfer requires an Intel-based Mac. A demo is available for download.
