Actiontastic adds iCal and .Mac sync

Actiontastic 0.9 gets iCal sync support

Tim at Hawk Wings points out that Actiontastic .9 now supports Sync Services, making it easy to move your stuff to iCal, .Mac, as well as (previously added) your iPod.

I haven't spent a whole lot of time with Actiontastic, but I admire its lean approach to task work (arguably a bit too lean for some folks). Still, I always feel like the less you have to fiddle with, the more likely you may be to actually do the stuff on your list.

Also, making sync seamless and reliable is clearly something Mac users are coming to expect in most every app where it's practical. Plus, of course, it works with Quicksilver, and there's nothing wrong with that.

[...] One of the hidden...

[...] One of the hidden gems in this release is the creation of a special context, called @inbox. When you input data in this context while you are in iCal or on your PDA, the next sync will bring those items into Actiontastic Inbox. This makes an interesting step ahead in the collection process of Actiontastic, which alreaady had a big plus by having Quicksilver integration. The overall feeling of the application is a little spartan, but, as Merlin Mann at 43 folders mentioned, this can be a great plus: it will actually let you focus on the doing, rather than fooling around. Actionstastic already sync’ed with iPod and with this release I think they can have a significant step from taking it out of beta and making it production-ready. [...]

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
