Task Coach -todo list manager

#1 Post by ashghost » Thu Mar 13, 2008 7:47 am

This app is like a simpler, prettier, less-cluttered (and less powerful) version of ToDoList: http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=816
Haller just released a portableapps.com version today, and I decided to see if it was natively portable.:D

EDIT:With its Python requirements, TaskCoach takes up 20MB, compared to ToDoList's 2MB, and there's just as much difference in their RAM usage. :oops:
I suppose some people might think the simpler UI is worth the resource hit...

EDIT2: and I didn't even include a single link!

Synopsis: Task Coach is a simple open source todo manager to manage personal tasks and todo lists.

Task Coach is designed to deal with composite tasks.

I'm pretty sure the portableapps version is in fact fully portable:


So should probably add it to our database.
