Realmac Software has released a public beta release of Overview, a new task manager for Mac OS X. It requires Mac OS X (10.2 or greater) and will cost US$9.95.
Overview is designed to handle multiple item lists. You can create categories to handle such things as, agendas, tasks, meeting notes, shopping lists and more. Each item in your list can be given a status (Urgent, Normal, Low or Done) and you can export an entire task list to a Rich Text File for printing.
Overview includes a menu item that sits by your clock — even if the main overview window isn’t visible, you can still see all your tasks without having to switch applications. Realmac says the finished version of the software is due soon.
