    Hey guys, I finally finished (with some help from you all) my app I've been working on, iProcrastinate. It's free to download at my site, and I'd appreciate any comments or suggestions you have concerning it's progress. Thanks for listening, and for all your help along the way. :)

    I'm on Digg too! :D

    I'll download it later...


    KIDDING!
    I just downloaded it and messed with it a little.. I really like it!

    Maybe, when adding a new event, instead of having to double click on it to change the name, it could come up as already editable, would be the only improvement I could think of. (that sentence made sense, right? :p)

    This is a really nice app. Very creative! Any chance you can integrate it with say iCal? Hehe. Having some form of reminders (alarm?) would be great. Some other suggestions (no offense to you! good job!):
    1. maybe the priority bar could have different colors depending on the priority level (red to green?)
    2. i really like the step-by-step completion. if you could add like a target date to complete particular steps, that'd help i think.

    good job dude. :) thanks~

    Thanks for the comments, it means a lot. :D

    I'll add the auto-edit feature as requested by katie ta achoo today, and it should be up and ready to go in a couple of hours.

    Thanks again! :)

    Nice app!

    Nice application!

    The setup is great! Why not send this to Apple to post for student applications?

    I used iCal for classes, but it was hard mentally remembering which assignments were due first. Yes, they were labeled for the appropriate days, but your setup is better for students!

    Nice job!

    Wow, thanks for all the comments guys! I never expected it would come across this good. :eek:

    Just wanted to let you know I updated it, and added a date/completion column to the step tableview! Give the new one a shot. :)

    I also updated the priority views to change colors, as requested previously. :)

    (I'm still stuck on making the newly-added assignment auto-editable... Any hints can be PMed my way!)

    Dammit, where were you when I was at Uni?!

    This would've been invaluable, I'm amazed nobody's thought of it before and very well done on creating such a simple yet really solid application. And it's farken quick too, starts up like *clicks fingers* on my old G4.

    Will download the update now, this is gonna come in real handy next year, Graduate Diploma here I come!!!

    I downloaded and love it.. As mentioned above, it would be really nice if it had integration w/ iCal. (Not that it isn't already awesome) That way you could use Konfabulator (is it?) too. Nice job though.. Can you alert us of updates here?

    Wow. This app rocks! I'm already using it to plan out my summer schoolwork (which I have not started!).

    Excellent Job. I know you're probably being bogged down with a whole bunch of requested features, but when you have the time can you make the window listing the different class names expandable so we can see the full name of the class. Kind of like the side list in iTunes. That way when we fill the screen with the app we can see the full names of all the classes.

    Can't wait to see what improvements you will make to this great app next!

    It looks great, I plan to use it for work and home (my two "classes" :p ).

    I agree with the iCal integration, but maybe that's hard to do without cooperation from Apple? I know nothing at all about developing...:confused:

    I have a small hint!
    Create a compressed disk image and the download size go from 576KB to 56KB. ;)

    I already commend him for his work.. but you shouldn't need any help from Apple w/ integration in iCal.

    Seriously? :eek: Wow I had no idea that type of compression was available. I'll see how that works. Thanks!

    Edit: Wow, thanks a bunch! Worked great, and kept it read-only. (I remember this was why I didn't try it in the first place, I was worried it would be user-editable.)

    Alright guys, more updates coming!

    One I've got finished is improved resizing of the class view. (As someone requested.)

    I'm trying to getting the auto-edit feature to work (requested by katie ta achoo) but am having trouble finding documentation or any resources on how to do so.
