A stylish to-do list with built-in productivity timer Source


GoForIt! is a simple and stylish productivity app, featuring a to-do list, merged with a timer that keeps your focus on the current task.

To-do lists are stored in the Todo.txt format. This simplifies synchronization with mobile devices and makes it possible to edit tasks using other front-ends.



Some dialogues (create new list, settings) do not fully fit the screen, but can be operated mostly fine.

Project status: mature

This project has been in development for a long time and is usually well beyond its 1.0 release. It should work fine.
