What our customers say

After buying various to-do type programs over the years (MindManager, TreePad X, Maple Professional, Goalscape, Quick To-Do Pro, Task Merlin Pro, MS One Note...), I've finally settled on Swift To-Do List Professional.
Martin K, UK
I was looking for a tool to get rid of my paper notes and to be able to prioritize all my small tasks and make sure that nothing was missed on a specific date. I did find a couple of different packages but all of them were either too complex to start using or too comprehensive and inflexible for my purpose.

I downloaded the free Lite version of Swift To-Do List and started using it right away. It was soon obvious that it did the job quite well. It has the features I need and it is very easy to use. Now I use the Professional version and I am still very focused on keeping it all simple and avoid 'non-sense' information.
Rene Lynge, Managing Director, Denmark
Just want to say, that the program is very useful our day to day business, we have upgraded to the full version and find it extremely useful.
