TaskPaper 2.0 Released

One of the most popular posts of 2008 on this blog was the one I wrote on TaskPaper in February. So I was excited when I was notified by a comment here that TaskPaper 2.0 was out.

What I love about TaskPaper is that it’s a truly simple application that lets you get things done and out of the way quickly (and without a lot o “system”). It also is formatted in text, so any text editor on any platform can be used to edit these lists.

New in TaskPaper 2.0:

* Themes
* Search
* Quick Entry Window
* Feels a lot faster!

I’ve used the new version for most of this week and found it extremely easy to fit into my workflow. As a GTDgirl – I love the themes, even though I use the basic look and feel (to keep distractions at bay).

Take a look at this screencast for an overview of how TaskPaper works.

Hog Bay Software has done a great job with this upgrade on a terrific application. The developers are also incredibly responsive on support issues. All in all – well worth $29.95!

    Do you know if it’s possible to set up a simple (preferably also stable/reliable) collaborative system using TaskPaper with Dropbox?

      Henrik – can you give me an example of what you’re looking for?

    jquig99 – I’m looking for the simplest kind of solution for managing and syncing tasks with my teamworker (wife). Searching for a quick and easy solution, TaskPaper looks promising.

    She’s got one stationary Mac and I’m using a MacBook Pro and an iPhone. I wish for us both of us to be able to maintain and sync a mutual .taskpaper file via DropBox. A great advantage would be if there’s a way I can edit the same .taskpaper file on my iPhone as well; keeping all 3 instances in sync.

    If this is possible, I think TaskPaper *might* just provide a working system for us to somehow delegate tasks to each other (perhaps by means of tagging or some other mechanism within its feature set).

    So I’m wondering if someone else has used TaskPaper in a collaborative way such as this, or similar.
