Anxiety is a super-lightweight To-do list application for Mac OS X Leopard that synchronizes with iCal and Mail. Its aim is to provide a streamlined, easily accessible interface to add and check off your tasks, while remaining poised to melt into the background at a moments notice.

It would be nice if you could turn off iCal synchronization. I don't need a throw-away list items cluttering iCal.

Otherwise, it rules.

I want to love it, but unfortunately find it unusable. I need to be able to manually sort items, so if I have a list of 10 things I can drag the order around (see SimpleTodo2). At least allow the sorting options in iCal (by priority, etc). Also, editing directly in the app is needed. Switching back to iCal is kludgey.

Man, this thing needs two key-commands: bring to front, and add new action. Also, need to be able to right-click to edit tasks in-line, without resorting to iCal.

Otherwise, minimalistic, clean and beautiful. I like.

This is Leopard-only for those that didn't read the top description.

I've been using this for a while now, and the only deficiency I've encountered has been the lack of sort options for the task list. New tasks appear at the bottom of the list, with no way to sort by priority, due date, etc. I'd prefer it to respect the sort order used in iCal, but it doesn't. For now, I'm running both Anxiety & TODO, another minimalist task list that runs in Dashboard, until I decide which app works best for me.

I love the name; it's relevant and humorous. Distressed, though, that the app only runs on Leopard ('though i understand why: CalendarStore). That rules me out for now, though, and puts a little more pressure on me to upgrade.

Great little app! Simple and very good looking.

I only seem to have a beef with its name. For some reason I'm wondering if it might have a subliminally bad influence on people (slightly joking, of course).

@rickroberts - Why is the use of this wording such a big deal to you? I'm glad you understand how the Calendar Store works, but for the average consumer the idea of "Syncing" is more accessible that describing the actual process involved. Surely the fact that a great many people are content to use this terminology is indicative of this...

Folks around the net keep talking about iCal and Mail syncing to-do's. There is NO syncing involved. Both apps are reading from the same store of information.

@danwarne : didn't mean to be so snarky in my comment (I am now being modded down for it). I really don't understand your comments though.

As for Anxiety, this is a terrific way to get a quick look at your to dos. It's fast, sleek, and nice and shiny. I actually very rarely use priorities in my tasks so that limitation doesn't bother me. I see this as more of a quick look for to dos. I like it.
