A software based task list can be valuable tool for keeping on top of projects and ensuring that your get everything done by the relevant deadline. But if the software you use is too complicated, you can spend more time fiddling with settings and inputting tasks than you do actually getting on and getting things done.
Anxiety aims to solve this problem. The application is an extremely streamlined task manager that provides a simple tick list of tasks you need to do. Synchronisation with iCal and Mail means that you can continue working with your existing list of tasks, but Anxiety can be used to add to your list.
iCal and Mail can be easily accessed from the app should be need to see more detail about a particular task, but the program interface provides you with just enough information to be able to see what needs to be done. The program window expands and shrinks so that it is never larger than it needs to be.
Anxiety can be configured to appear on top of all other windows so you can always keep an eye on your tasks list. The window fades in and out of view as you switch between programs so it is never intrusive. If you're looking for bells and whistles, Anxiety is not for you, but for a focused tool that does what it was designed for, it is perfect.
With Anxiety your task list is always available and you are not overwhelmed with superfluous features - an elegant, task-oriented solution.
