[prMac.com] Atlanta, GA, USA - Independent Mac and PC developers Phelios, Inc., creators of Mac games and the PTK Game Engine, has stepped out of its gaming environment to develop an unusual productivity tool, which is also a screensaver for Macintosh.
The ToDo Screensaver is a useful and unique ToDo List manager and works in the form of a colorful screensaver for Macintosh. It's a tool that gently reminds users of their various tasks. From the menubar or from the System Preferences, users simply input their to do list tasks and settings. The next time they walk away from their computer, upon their return, they'll be reminded of the things they need to do because their list will be moving across their desktop screen. It is not necessary, however, to wait for the screensaver to start automatically, however. For immediate access to the to-do list, users can set up a "hot corner" so that each time they would like to promptly see the list, they only need to click on the hot corner.
Users can also schedule the To Do List Screensaver to send them an email with a list of their tasks. Send an email one hour or later or click on the "Send Now" button for an immediate email to yourself, which is ideal when a person is on their way out the door and they need to see their list later. They can check their email from another computer or their mobile phone at a later time.
The To Do List Screensaver was designed for people who have an aversion to loud alarms, nagging alerts or bells and aggressive reminders, and for those people who do not want to use complicated and sometimes convoluted time management software. Think of the To Do List Screensaver as something between stickies and iCal. With the To Do List Screensaver, users will always know what they have to do; they will never forget an event, date, task, meeting or appointment, ever again.
Pricing and Availability:
The To Do List Screensaver is available to purchase for $9.95 (USD) online. Also available online is a free demo download of the To Do List Screensaver.
