TaskPaper 2.0

Major update to Hog Bay Software’s $30 list-based task manager. I’m not sure what to make of it. I like that it’s quite a bit simpler than OmniOutliner (and miles simpler than OmniFocus), and I like that it’s less structured than Things.

But it feels like an outliner without outlining features. I don’t think a task manager needs to be hierarchical, but if it is hierarchical (that is, if tasks can have sub-tasks, and sub-tasks can have sub-sub-tasks, etc.) then I expect to be able to fold and unfold sections of the hierarchy with disclosure triangles. TaskPaper doesn’t do that, other than allowing you to hoist (in outlining terms) a top-level project.

Definitely worth a look, especially if you’re not entirely satisfied with whatever you’re using now for task management.
