    I work from home, and while I do I can easily get distracted by news or just get sidetracked and forget what I was doing. I would like to stick to a schedule but not sure what kind of app I'm looking for.. I have Merlin, but thats mostly for project management.. I would like something that would be more of a daily schedule type of thing. Maybe it could remind me or somethi about what I'm suppose to be doing at a certain time. I just need somethin! Anyone have any idea of what kinda app I'm lookin for?

    If you're looking for something to keep track of your tasks and what you need to do next, a notebook and a pen might help ;)

    If you really want a program to do this, try OmniFocus ( It's expensive, sure, but it works well for me.

    Try to check the hitlist.

    I tried both Things and OmniFocus. But I believe hitlist beats both of them.

    I prefer Hitlist over OmniFocus because it allows to assign multiple context to a single task. Let s say you can put multiple tags to single task such personal urgent then maybe a project name. Then you can build smart folders for

    personal, personal&urgent , urgent , urgent&project name.

    I also tried Things. I really liked it but then there was something ( actually there wasnt sth ) which was totally against task management. But unfortunately right now I forgot what it was :(

    I remember going to Things forum and reading people complaints about the same lack of feature. For me Hit list is best right now.
