# ARE YOU NEW TO THE TODO.TXT FORMAT? SEE WHAT IT OFFERS:

## A task list that *you* control

Your task list is a plain text file, not some proprietary format owned by a company or locked to a specific application.

## A simple and timeless format

Plain text is the simplest file format there is. It will always be accessible, by some kind of application, forever.

## Few rules to learn

Learn only a few simple formatting rules (which SwiftoDo will take care of for you) to indicate task priority, task completion, and so on.

## A GTD-ready system

The todo.txt format was built with Getting Things Done in mind. It supports projects (which begin with a “+”) and contexts (which begin with a “@“).

## Use alongside any app on any platform

This app plays nicely with file sync software. It saves changes instantly, and reloads the file when changes are detected from external sources.

Usability

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments

I love the iphone app and mac. Simple and effective for use, including with my Braille line entering the workflow, because the markup is made in document without formatting. Can I take on line and then open on the mac, with synchronize dropbox and edit the file on the iphone. With Ulysses and Macjournal in writing and taking notes, respectively, needed a program accessible to tasks that support markup. I'm quite happy with Swiftodo.
