There’s no shortage of task and to-do list managers for the Mac and iPhone, but today I’ll be looking at one which takes a slightly different approach. Put Things Off is a new iPhone application from Spiffing Apps with a beautiful interface and simple goal.

Rather than offering a huge array of scheduling and grouping features, each to-do has three simple options: Today, Put Off, or Done. This review will take a look at the design, basic functionality, and also show a few competing iPhone apps which may be of interest.

David Allen’s Getting Things Done task management techniques have become incredibly popular, inspiring Mac software developers to build applications that help users manage their lives and their ever growing To Do lists.

These applications assist with the capture, management and completion of tasks. Many include iPhone applications that offer syncing and other iPhone specific features, not found in their Mac counterparts. This roundup will focus on five of the most popular tools, each with a different approach and style.

If you’re anything like me, you commonly find that most earphones simply don’t have a long enough cable. Being tethered to a short wire can be surprisingly frustrating. Fortunately there’s a way to stay completely tangle-free, wirelessly streaming audio to your iPhone using an application called AirPhones.

No matter whether you’re three or thirty feet away from your Mac, providing both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network you’re able to listen to any computer audio remotely. This walkthrough will explain how to get started along with a few tips and tricks to get the most from the system.

Of all the web apps that threaten to replace their desktop brethren, Gmail is the grandaddy of them all. A web-based email app that has enough functionality to compete with the likes of Apple’s Mail or Mozilla’s Thunderbird, Gmail is used by many people around the world as their primary email service. But if you’re like me, sometimes you really wish it had some of the features common to its desktop counterparts, like the ability to drag and drop images into a message, or integration with Address Book.

Mailplane steps in to bridge the gap, bringing the functionality of your desktop mail applications to the comfort and familiarity of Gmail.

Following your favorite website doesn’t require checking it every hour or two for new stories. RSS readers provide one-stop websites, or applications, that gather all the posts from your favorite blogs or news portals. Several great applications exist for the Mac for organizing your RSS feeds, from Apple’s own Mail, to NewsFire, NetNewsWire and the web based Google Reader.

All of these applications (or web sites) are similar, displaying the unread stories in your feed like an e-mail inbox. However, Times provides an entirely different reading experience. Using your favorite websites, or the great set of default RSS feeds, Times formulates a digital newspaper, providing a more natural reading experience.

We’re running a another huge competition this week, with ten (yes, ten!) copies of ExpanDrive on offer, worth $400. We reviewed ExpanDrive yesterday, and found it to be an excellent tool for integrating FTP access with the OS X Finder.

It’s a great solution if you’re a web designer, developer, regularly back up to an FTP server, or don’t want to fork over $99 for access to an iDisk.

Entering is simple. All you need to do is:

  1. Post a link to this competition – either on your website, or via Twitter
  2. Leave a comment, letting me know where you posted the link!

The competition will run for 10 days, and we’ll randomly select ten winners on Friday the 5th June. The odds of winning a license are incredible, so don’t forget to subscribe via RSS or follow us on Twitter to find out if you’ve been successful.

Good luck!
