If you have a busy work schedule with meetings, assignments and deadlines constantly converging, you need to manage your time.

There are many major options on the Mac such as Entourage and iCal, and The Hit List is an attempt to gatecrash the market. The Hit List looks and feels very elegant presenting with you what looks like a page from a diary or schedule. You can enter a task simply by hitting enter and typing. All other commands, such as "Task Complete" and "Edit" are listed as keyboard shortcuts along the bottom of the interface. This makes adding tasks extremely quick. You can also open multiple tasks in different tabs if you're working on more than one thing at a time.

For those on the move with an iPhone, you can sync The Hit List with it although this is where the mobile features end. One of the big downsides of The Hit List for many users is the fact that, without an iPhone, you won't be able to access your schedule from any computer wherever you are. When you consider that there are other free options out there that do so, then the appeal of The Hit List looks limited.

The Hit List looks and feels good as a task management application but many may be put of by the fact that it can't be accessed anywhere and the cost of upgrading.
