I have been coding little application to make adding task in iCal fast and comfortable. I finally have a binary release today. Check out QuickTask here.
I find entering task using standard dialog provided by General Calendaring application quite uncomfortable. The dialog feels very "noisy" to me. I understand that most of them aim to enable user utilize ical-file standard as much as possible but for my usual use it's too bloated.
I made quicktask to make entering task to calendar more fit to my task-adding style and many others I think, especially GTD-follower who don't bother with dates, times and prioritizing task (at least when entering them).
It assume and simplify several things :
- You only assign one task exactly one category
- You only need to entery task name, description
I have been using for sometime now and hopefully it will be useful for others too.
