I was hopping if there is lower price for single users.
I just checked it: there is no.

the tool is perfect; but, the pricing is too high.

I find a good scheduling service:http://trevorai.com/ , and it is free.

still, the issue is we need to be online to use these apps
the Internet is productivity thief. I really want to go offline when i need to focus.

I just found an article mentioning that Carl Newport, one of my favorite authors on productivity, has considered Todolists as useless until they are scheduled on a time frame.


  > To-do lists are evil. Schedule everything.
  Assume you’re going home at 5:30, then plan your day backwards.
  Make a plan for the entire week.
  Do very few things, but be awesome at them.
  Do less shallow work — focus on the deep stuff.

This is a very low-tech solution, but if the software makes it easy, you could just add [X] in front of a completed item.

I used to do that with Google Calendar, but unfortunately the recent redesign eliminated the easy way of doing it (the old event pop-up where you could type directly into the event title field).

There is a $9.95 per month option if you pay for a year. I found it unique enough that I went that route. I am now a firm beleiver that if I don’t schedule tasks, they are much less likely to get done. I like the way that if you do not schedule a completed task, it reassigns another time automatically. It also integrates with Google Calendar seamlessly

Possible options for addressing this problem include such to do managers as Leadertask, DoogiePim, AgendaatOnce, EssentialPim pro.

Also consider Todoist with its (virtually instantaneous) Gcal sync, which enables you to mark tasks as completed and correspondingly either remove or gray them in Gcal.
