Smart To-Do List: Simple Windows Task Management

Smart To-Do List by Scott Karstetter is a new to-do list manager with a simple interface. It allows tagging, prioritizing, and filtering to ensure that you do not miss anything. It employs keyboard shortcuts, like ‘h’ for viewing high priority items.

Smart To-Do List is Windows-based and there is no plan yet for a Mac version. Karstetter said that it was developed using Microsoft tools and a Mac version would be difficult.

The application is small enough that it can be installed on to a USB drive for portability. Karstetter is also looking at interfacing with other web-applications to compensate for the absence of a web interface.

Smart To-Do List costs $14.95 but it’s cheaper than similar applications Tudumo ($29.95) and TodoPaper ($29.99). There is a free trial version.

  1. Marcin,

    Thanks. I’ve been in contact with Brad Linder, the commenter above. I’ve fixed the problem. I had to re-create the installer on another computer and that solved it. Hope you can give it a try now!

    Best Regards,
    Scot

  2. ->Scott – my antivirus software is updated everyday As you can see from Brad’s comment, I am not the only one.

    I understand that this may be a false alert. Still, this is something you should probably investigate a bit more.

  3. Dominic,

    Thanks very much for the post. There are a couple of things that make this software unique from most other to-do list applications.
    * Keyboard command based options, i.e. anything that can be done with a mouse, can be done with the keyboard alone. http://www.smarttodolist.com/keyword-commands.html

    * To-Do list templates – you can save a list as a template to be re-used later.

    * Runs from a flash drive.

    The main thing I was trying to achieve with this application was simplicity. For instance, to add a task, you only need to type the task and press enter (you can optionally tag it).

    Please contact me if you have any questions.
