Win a Copy of The Hit List

Following our review of The Hit List a couple of days ago, I’m pleased to announce that we have two copies of the fantastic application to give away. Worth $49.95, it’s a great chance to get your hands on one of the best task managers available.

Entering is simple – all you need to do is leave a comment, letting us know the main tasks you’re working on today (I’m intrigued to know what all our wonderful readers get up to!)

The competition will run for one week, and we’ll randomly select the two winners on Wednesday 15th July. Good luck, and be sure to follow us on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed to find out if you’re a winner!

    My main task today is to finally decide whether it’s best to keep my to-do list on paper or computer – I’ve pinged around between so many different apps and web-apps, but for the last while have tended to prefer my Moleskine (I know, I’m a terrible cliche). But then I very nearly lost it earlier this week, so I’m inclined back to checking out desktop apps – and The Hit List is top of my list!

    Oh, and preparing a complicated finance report for a funder of our charity…

    I’m the secondary care giver for my elderly parents. My mother is in hospital at the moment with anaemia, and father has a daily schedule of medication. Today I am going to the hospital to sit in on an endoscopy on my mother and then go to see my dad and catch up on all the new medication that he’s been prescribed. This means finding out what it does, what side effects it has, explaining to him how it fits in with his current regime so he doesn’t feel overwhelmed.

    I’ve been looking for a really good task manager that I could use with my work schedule and my duties as a son. Saw your review for this one and have already decided that I was going to buy it, just been waiting for payday.

    Would be super awesome to win a copy!

    Wow, today is/was a crazy day. I’m resident in Hungary (currently) got an internship over in Dublin, so I have about 6days to make it happen. Today I was searching for accommodation (didn’t find any good), also not lucky with the flight, guess because it was such short time all cheap tickets from Ryanair were almost as much as normal flight with Malév or any other airline. Hmmm,btw…if I’m already writing this: does someone live in Dublin? (please write me an email then! ;) Still, I have a bunch of stuff to get done before leaving this “lovely” country, so THL would be a great support! *:)

Making my own To Do Lists don’t cut it for me, and as an unorganized person I really need something like the Hit List to help me keep up with my college tasks. Here’s hoping I get it!

    I’m interested in seeing how well Hit List handles the timing of projects because right now I use Office Time for that and Things for To Dos.

  • Philip Hallstrom

    Well, my main task right now is choosing a GTD app. I’ve ignored them up till now, but today there is just too much to track on simple pen and paper. Most of them revolve around getting various pieces of content/design/code to various clients.

  • Gedeon Herschberg

    I have just been president of my Rotary club and have transferred to another club nearer to my home. Rotary is “service above self” and I will be involved again with similar tasks. I have been bulletin editor and secretary. I have already been asked to be the clubs – district liaison officer for “stroke awareness” which may result in repeated organisational tasks.
    The Hit List application wold no doubt help in these organisational tasks, and others.

    My day is almost over, Friday here in NZ, almost beer-o-clock. It’s been a good end to a good week. Just finished some final AJAX magic on the back-end of a web app for, and it is all set to go-live next week, and did some cross browser testing of a new site that has just been delivered to a London, UK, based Film Fund. Nice people, but testing IE6 is always such a pleasure, know what I mean? Now it’s head-down, coding glasses on, and time for some serious work on a new site for Hoglund Art Glass. Cufon is on the cards for this, can’t wait. Now where is my to do list? Gosh I need to GTD.

  • Miguel Madrid

    Today I decide to take a much-deserved stress break from communism. For the past two weeks, I’ve been actively bombarding the internet tubes with facts against the communist internet-less Hugo Chavez and his apprentice Manuel Zelaya, both whom molest the very own childhood of our democratic family in Honduras. I did all of this from my command center (Macbook Pro) alongside my apprentice PINEPEAR, a witty screenname that resembles a slight twist from our common PINEAPPLE export.

    Today, during my break, I discovered AppStorm. Cheers to you, my fellow internet tubers, and here’s to winning a copy of THE HIT LIST, a nice addition to my arsenal against these rats.

  • Dan

    Today I’m working a client’s website… it’s especially tricky, because I have to switch the site over from a 1990’s handcoded template system to WordPress- and it has to be a seamless transition, because his visitors will complain if the site is down for more than an hour. I also aim to write a few useful articles for my blog. If I have any time left over, I’m going to start work on my much-delayed portfolio site. The Hit List would be quite an awesome app for me to have, because I have so much to do these days, and I’m still a high school student, attending 6-hour long summer pre-college courses every day.

  • Lydia

    My main task for the day is to make my mac as streamlined as possible after getting it back from the Apple Store with a shiny new hard drive. You see, I was one of the 5 mac users EVER to have had a virus. In the process, I lost my data and apps, so I’m starting over from nothing. Organization is key this time around and for the time being I am not going on the internet w/ the laptop, so I’m downloading and transferring everything I need from another computer. If I am a winner, I promise to utilize it to the best of my ability to get my machine and life in order! Thanks.

  • @nomadone

    Today I’ve been scurrying around on my machine & the web bouncing between various services, email & twitter.

    I’ve been doing this trying to get multiple unrelated tasks done simultaneously but err, being a guy and all my guy brain can only tackle 1 minute thought at a time, LOL.

    So I followed a link to an App article which eventually led me to this page. This Hit List app is super awesome so now I’m trying to figure out whether getting that iPhone to use with Things & my Mac is still my first priority.

    Trying to decide whether to buy things or Hit List! Hit List looks way more powerful and a little slicker as well!!! Please pick me!
