[prMac.com] Peterborough, UK - Independent developer Joshua Garnham today is proud to announce Spark, a powerful light-weight to-do and note taking app exclusively for Mac. Spark is an astoundingly light-weight to-do app, incorporating an 'Apple' style interface to fit in with your other Apple apps. Spark is an easy to use app and perfect for reminders like 'Do the Shopping' or 'Buy Mum's Xmas Present'. Spark has already received a great welcome into the Mac world by a number of websites that have reviewed it.
Some of the Main Features include:
* Projects; Group your tasks into projects so it doesn't clutter your to-do list
* Global Shortcut; Spark can be accessed anytime, anywhere by just pressing a simple key board shortcut that you can choose
* In the Background; Spark can sit in your menu bar and not in your Dock so as to keep your Dock clean and tidy
* Sync with iCal; Spark will sync automatically with iCal when any tasks in Spark change. Never leaving iCal in the dark
If you have tried one of the Many Task Management apps out there in the Mac world, you probably find that some are just overly-complicated, asking you for too much information when you just simply want to add a to-do to a list and maybe some notes. With Spark this is exactly what it's like, no hassle, no trouble and it's fast; just add a task, maybe group it into a project and add a few notes (if needed) and your done.
Tired of adding tasks from your task management app into iCal or Mail manually? Spark will update iCal - and with it Mail - automatically, any change in Spark and Spark will sync with iCal/Mail. You can even choose which Calendar to sync to thus enabling you to sync with MobileMe from within iCal; keep all your computers up to date without the price tag of a small fighter jet. You heard right, Spark is absolutely free.
We were lucky enough to receive a number of reviews and responses to Sparks release, one of which is as follows;
" Spark is a very lightweight notes taking / to-do list app, which you could decide to either run in the dock or in the menu bar. The interface is very nice and straightforward: you can add tasks, attach notes to them and organize tasks in bigger projects. Another great feature is the iCal syncing: every time a Spark task changes, so it does in iCal. Cool.
* Snow Leopard
Spark is a freeware, it has a clean and well-designed UI and it could become the ultimate solution for those who are looking for a simple, uncluttered to-do manager app for Mac.
