To Do Widget is an efficient note taker for your Dashboard.
Sure, you'll say, but there are already plenty of note takers on Mac, so why would I choose this one? The To Do Widget aims for efficiency, with a notepad-like interface and clear listing of your notes. Flip the widget over to handle settings, like in which calendars to show your to do lists and how to sort items. You can also reveal the priority level of each item and have completed items remain in your list.
The To Do Widget also integrates perfectly with Mail and iCal so you can synchronize events in your lists. One thing that disappointed us a bit are the limited customization options. You can select the font type and size used in your notes but you can't change the theme or color of the notepad.
Despite this minor cosmetic issue, the To Do Widget is actually a very efficient note taker.
