Keep Track Of Your To-Do List With This Menu Bar App

I typically start every work day by creating a list of the things I need to accomplish that day. Once something I did in the Notes app, I eventually moved to just using a page in a notebook. As new things pop up I add to that list, ultimately ending in a jumbled mess of a list with things crossed off and others written in the margins and inevitably that one thing that accidentally slips through the cracks.

This week I came across a MacOS menu bar app that serves the same purpose as my notebook beside my laptop, but is much better at handling the job. Called Thought Train, it’s meant to be a spot where you keep track of the things you want to do so they don’t get forgotten while you’re accomplishing other tasks.

Since it’s using your menu bar, the app is easy to access no matter what you’re working on. To use it you just click on a ladder icon at the top of the page and type.

You can add multiple thoughts, archive and delete thoughts, pin thoughts for later, and delete things you’re done with by just clicking a check mark.

When the app is minimized the tasks you need to do also scroll across the top of your menu bar marque style, so they’re never far from reach. Deleted items go into an archive that you can view later on.

It’s a simple interface, but a really useful one if you frequently need to add things to the ol’ to-do list.
