Check! A simple Task/Todo Manager

In the middle of preparing NetHack for the iPad I felt the need for a simple todo manager. My spiral notebook that I’ve been using for that kind of thing simply didn’t cut it for me anymore, it was too much hassle to move tasks between projects. So I looked online but I didn’t find exactly what I needed, so I made an app for that.

Check! is pretty simple. You can add tasks, and every task can have subtasks, and since a subtask is a task as well it can have subtasks. Repeat until your memory is exhausted.

The tasks on the main screen can serve as categories and important projects, as in the screenshot. This organization has proven to be working quite well for me, but Check! is flexible enough for other models.

There are no due dates and no explicit use of priorities, though you can certainly change the order of tasks to indicate priorities. If you are done with something simply swipe-delete it. In 1.0 you can shake your iPhone/iPod to enter edit mode, in 1.1 (not yet approved) there is a button for that.

If you want to support further iHack* development and/or need a simple task manager download it here. If you want to write a review let me know so I can send you a promo code.

    Oh! I’ll try later today. I’m on my way of making “my own great to-do”, with JavaScript as an offline web app (thus fully editable to suit anyone’s tastes… But I have to keep comenting the code to allow “anyone” to do it). I’ll let you know how your’s compares with my be-be-beta version, and post a review on the Store 😉

    Still hadn’t time to consider buying your app (I may do it just as a “donation” to iNethack ;). Checked the website harry posted… just looking at it, looks like a whole ad. Ugly, would never consider using something from such a site!

    If a main screen entry is used as “category”, any entry within it cannot be deleted without deleting the entire “category”. Please fix.
    Otherwise super.

    A new list order can be sorted in “Edit”, but the new order doesn’t save.

    …seems to be working better since downloading iOS4.
    Will look forward to 1.0.3
