where do i find a to-do list app that will plan my time for me?

I am in love with the concept behind the web app Taskk.it, a to-do list/time management tool that schedules your tasks and creates a daily/weekly agenda for you. But it seems to be an abandoned project and is too buggy to use. Please help me find another solution! [more inside]

Looking for a daily to-do list type program, I think.

I'm trying to find a calendar-based list program, where I can make a list for a given day in the future, and check off once things happen. One caveat, I need it to be viewable, but not edited by other people. ie: TeuxDeux.com would be perfect, but it doesn't allow for any read-only access. Standalone or web-based is fine, or if something like this can be done inside MS Outlook, that would work too. I looked at the Daily Task List in Outlook, but it doesn't seem to be able to work with shared calendars. Any ideas?

Be my Techie? Tablet Edition

I'm an HR manager in a company and am looking to buy a PERSONAL tablet to use in meetings for taking notes, keeping to-do lists and storing/viewing notes. I'd love to be able to handwrite into the notes, but that's not a deal-breaker as long as the tablet is functional. I have some flexibility on price, but would really like to stay under $400. Bonus points for internet functionality without wifi. [more inside]

Best place to hold stuff I need to get to later on?

Every now and then I go through my inbox and clear it out. I create events in Google calendar whenever there is an item I need to address in the future. I've never been 100% happy with this non-system for reasons I can't properly define. Is there some better place to offload everything that integrates with Android and windows/any browser?

I need a sequential, easily-changeable, dateless online to-do list.

I'm looking for a digital to-do list that doesn't force me to set dates and can be rearranged easily. It can be either a website or a program that syncs to the cloud. I envision a simple list of tasks where I can quickly move the tasks up and down depending on how their relative priority changes. I would like to be able to assign an approximate completion time instead of setting a finish date since I never meet dates due to an ever evolving list. I plan to use this for keeping myself on task at work. The solutions can be free or paid. More preferred attributes inside. [more inside]

Help me find this todo webapp?

I'm trying to find a specific to do webapp I used a few months ago. It was of minimalist style, the main colors were red/grey/black on a white background. The main features I'm looking for (so if you know of a different one that does this, let me know) was that it was simple to add a task- you just typed it on a line, and that subtasks were also easy to add- as I recall you just hit enter for a new line and then tab to go each level deeper into tasks. I believe you could hide any sub-tasks by sort of retracting them into the top level task (if that makes sense?). Does that sound familiar to anyone? Thanks! If I remember any more details I'll update the post.

GTD: permanently display google tasks todo list on my wall (next to corkboard)

what sort of device can I buy to show my google tasks next to a corkboard, so I see them on my way out the door? do any photo frames do wireless sync? my first thought was a cheap old itouch, but the screen is tiny, and it does more than I need. low power use would also be a plus (i.e. not a laptop or cheap desktop with wall mounted monitor, which I also thought of - I do have an extra 17" sitting around) I could consider switching to another tasks app if required for the best solution, though I do enjoy gtasks in gmail and calendar.

Can I Have Multiple Task Lists Displayed Horizontally?

TaskList Special Request: MyLifeOrganized is my preferred tasklist software, because I can do exactly what I need - simply create new tasks and sibling/ child tasks rapidly and unrestricted, and drag and drop them into category groups. Problem: I have so many tasks, one huge vertical list isn't really working for me, nor does it jive with my widescreen workspace. Solution: I want to view each category group (eg immediate actions, projects, documents, clients etc) in it's own vertical list, and each list is displayed side by side in a horizontal view. Is there any Win XP tasklist software *not web-based - no internet access at work* that does this?
