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.
