[prMac.com] Pacific Grove, California - An app for iPhone and Mac called Dropkick is shaking up the crowded task list app market by under-doing its competitors. While most task management apps can feel like a maze of features, Dropkick aims for simplicity by focusing on the essentials: add tasks, drag-and-drop to prioritize, and check things off. It's so easy to use, you get the feeling it might actually help you get things done.
Dropkick works great on either iPhone or Mac as a standalone, but it really shines when synced together. Tasks are securely synced over the internet as you make changes so you can easily manage tasks at your desk and pick up where you left off on-the-go.
A new update adds a few handy improvements like the option to create multiple lists (e.g. to separate personal and work tasks), back-to-back task creation in the iPhone version (e.g. to quickly create a grocery list), and more efficient keyboard navigation on the Mac version.
Pricing and Availability:
Dropkick is available as a free trial. Upgrading to the full version is a $1.99 (USD) in-app purchase for the iPhone version and $4.99 for the Mac version. The application is compatible with iOS 3.0 or later and Macs running OS X 10.5 or 10.6. The Mac version is also available from the Mac App Store where 10.6.6 is required, although a free trial is not available there.
