Neglected iOS and Mac app The Hit List has been snapped up by Karelia software, promising to breath life into a pretty great to-do app. One look at the iOS version of The Hit List tells you all you need to know: it still sports an aged iOS 6-style interface, and there is still no iPad version. That’s pretty bad for an app that costs $50 on the desktop, and requires a $2-per-month subscription to sync with the $10 iPhone app.
Hopefully that’ll be fixed soon now the app is in better hands.
The Hit List is a rival to task managers like Things and Omnifocus. It integrates with iCloud’s native Reminders and Calendar, and offers simple but powerful task management, letting you add contexts and tags to your tasks using symbols like / and @.
The Mac version still looks pretty nice, although the lack of an ability to email tasks to the app seems like a big oversight – after all, how do most of your tasks arrive? Mail-in tasks must be hard to implement though, as even the mighty Omnifocus only added it relatively recently.
There’s a two-week trial of the Mac app to test things out. I’m hoping to see big things from Karelia on this, as I like the developers other apps – Tangerine and iMedia Browser are both very focussed and polished apps.
