Getting organized isn’t easy for everyone. Some people have trouble getting started. Some, don’t even have a clue WHERE to start. This is one of the reasons why I like applications like Swift To-Do List. It’s an organization application for Windows.
With Swift To-Do List, you can manage both tasks and notes. Each task can have its own notes; and you can create separate full note pages, or memos, with rich text support, right in the to-do list tree. The To-Do List Tree has icons that help you organize and print your to-do lists and memos. You can choose from more than 140 icons in up to 4 sizes. You can also easily reorder your to-do lists using drag and drop.
Swift To-Do List includes recurring tasks support. Setting it up is extremely easy and is very flexible. It has many different recurrence patterns to choose from including, hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, monthly on day of week, yearly, yearly on day of week, and X days after completion. With these varied options, it’s possible to setup recurrences like, the last Friday of every month, or the first Monday in January, or every Tuesday and Thursday, or 5 days after the task is completed. Unique feature: Swift To-Do List also lets you preview the next 10 times the task is going to recur.
Reminders can be easily set for any of your tasks with just a few clicks. Swift To-Do List has great reminder support. The snoozing of reminders is really easy and flexible. You can even receive email reminders and task recurrence notifications sent to you directly from the program.
Swift To-Do List has extended support for rich formatting in its notes section of your task or reminder. You can import notes and memos from MS Word DOC and DOCX files, HTML files, web-archive MHT files, OpenOffice ODT files, text TXT files, rich text RTF files, and e-book ePUB files. You can also export notes and memos to PDF files as well as all the formats noted above.
There’s a lot to like from Swift To-Do List; but the appearance of the app is a bit on the campy side. The icons are a bit too detailed and the animations it employs by default aren’t really needed and take away from the awesome functionality of this program. If you don’t use the to-do list in your mail client (like Outlook), or in Yahoo! Gmail or Outlook.com; or if that’s just too much pomp for the circumstance, you might want to give this app a look.
