Best Offline Task Manager

I am looking for a good desktop to do manager to use offline. I really thought MyLife Organized was going to work for me except the repeating function is not useful for recurring tasks that float. Marking tasks to regenerate when completed results in the regenerated item scheduled for the next date but does not maintain the original time. Basically I have a lot of daily routines that need to regenerate on a daily basis.

I don't have an iphone, but I do have a palm pilot and an ipaq that I may be able to get working again. I'm really struggling with finding a solution that will allow me to carry my to do list with me so I can check things off as I work. I am not always at a computer so I think I may have to resort to a printed list. I wish the Toodledo booklet was more configurable.

Any suggestions or recommendations?

Its old, but I really love Ecco. I believe that is was possibly the best PIM ever developed, and many others who still use it agree. If you are interested, you might want to browse and/or search here: http://outlinersoftware.com/ . Its a great resource for PIM information.

There are still a lot of good applications for the Palm OS that you might like. Some fiddle with the built-in task list, such as CanDo and DateBK (4, 5 and 6). I really like Life Balance, which has its own todo list, but which can synch with the built-in list. LB also has an excellent desktop application for both Mac and Windows, and which synchronizes very well. Their site is www.llamagraphics.com and they offer 30 day trials. They also offer software for the iPhone/iPod if you want to go in that direction later on.

Since the Toodledo booklet wasn't customizable enough for me, I started printing subsets of my lists on 3x5 index cards.

With not too many tweaks, I was able to get a nice little stack of lists that are as customizable as anything you can view from your browser.

I just had to change the print settings in my browser to shrink to fit, and for the page size to be 3x5.

What if you set a recurrence of "Every 1 day" instead of setting "Regenerate new task 1 day after each task completed"? This will maintain the original time.

Thanks for the tip about TaskAngel! I just downloaded and it works perfect! It synced to Toodledo with no problem at all. It will be nice to be able to work from my list when offline!

Now if I could find a hand held solution that doesn't involve getting an iphone or data plan. Will take a look at the print options again.

iPhones are great! Try one for a few days - you'll be hooked. I love having access to my Toodledo data wherever I am.

Note that you could also get yourself an iPod Touch as these devices can also run Toodledo and Appigo Todo. The only difference is that you can't sync over the phone network with an iPod Touch but can do so via WiFi.

Thanks Peter. I didn't realize that iPod had a PDA type device. Never really checked into them. It's still not an option however but I appreciate the info. I do have a netbook though and can access by list that way. Even though it is quite small it is still not convenient for "working my list."

May also want to check out Google Docs. You could create a todo list in word or excel update online or offline and access from anywhere. Timesheet Mobile
