Anxiety is an aptly named super-lightweight to-do list application that floats silently on your desktop, subtly reminding you of all of the little things you’ve yet to accomplish.
Hence the name.
Tom Stoelwinder’s Anxiety utilizes Leopard’s Calendar Store — a new system-wide database that contains your calendars, events and to-dos — to remain in sync with iCal and Mail. Add, remove, or check off a task in either Anxiety or one of these apps, and the changes will be reflected in the others.
I’ve been using it and it works as advertised. In fact, all applications should reflect the same degree of polish and attention to detail in their version 1.0 release.
The site for Anxiety is gorgeous as well.
I do have one nit, however, in that Anxiety displays all of your to-do’s up to a certain number (specified in preferences), without regard to priority.
Hence it’s possible that with a lot of tasks a few high-priority ones may slip off the screen and under the radar.
Adding to your Anxiety, of course.
I’ve already contacted Tom about this, and hope to see it resolved in a future update. I’d also love to have a widget-based version too, but that’s could just be me.
Best of all, Anxiety is free (though donations are appreciated).
