SmallTask Is A Minimalist Dropbox-Syncing Task Manager

SmallTask is a Mac and iOS app that’s similar to Gina Trapani’s Todo.txt Touch for Android, in that it is a simple to-do manager that syncs with Dropbox. It’s nothing groundbreaking, but it gets the job done well. Plus, it looks like a notebook (if you’re into that sort of thing).

SmallTask is remarkably straightforward. You launch it, you add a task, and it reminds you of that task when the time comes (if you want). On the Mac, the app needs to be running in order for the reminders to work but on iOS you’ll get a push notification. If you want to sync tasks with Dropbox, you just log in to Dropbox through the app. SmallTask will let you specify the folder where the tasks are kept, which is a small touch but hugely appreciated. That’s pretty much all it does, but if you’re looking for a minimal, straightforward task manager that syncs with Dropbox, here you go.

  • I’ve been looking for a cloud based GTD app for a little while. I liked Things for it’s project based approach, but it’s limit to OSX platforms really shot it in the foot, given that I use a Windows machine at work (that and the $79 cost). I’ve settled on wunderlist – it’s multplatform, and free. I can use the lists function as a substitute for project folders, and I can have it synced across my mac, windows work machine, ipad and phone. Win!
