Imagine a situation where a thought comes to your mind and you automatically look for either a pencil or a pen to jot it down or an advanced task management software to retain the memory for later use. Many a times, these notes get lost either physically or in a huge jargon of information. To-Do DeskList is a user-friendly task management utility that organizes tasks on your desktop with emphasis on priority and flexibility. It is a small yet powerful utility boasting auto-arranged sticky notes on your desktop, global hotkeys, synchronization and sharing options equipping you to effectively manage varying workloads over time. The DeskList concept is based on user-friendliness, achieved through accessibility from the desktop. With a comprehensive support document and window, managing life using notes and reminders could never have been this easy.
