gTodo.txt won't be developed any further and
there is no support.
gTodo.txt is a todo list
management application. It is based on the
todo.txt format. This uses a simple
plain text file to encode tasks, which is platform independent and future
The g stands for graphical as well as for Groovy. The former because it is

- Future Proof
todo.txtformat is based on a simple text file. This is readable and editable with any operating system, even in decades.
- No feature overkill, just helping you to manage your tasks. If you change
something, the modifications are saved automatically. If the
todo.txtfile changes, your task list is updated. Use mouse or keyboard to navigate and manipulate your tasks. The application will notify you if a newer version is available (which can be disabled).
- Cross Platform
- Use the same program on Mac OS X, Windows or any other operating system with Java 6 or higher. Nevertheless it looks and feels like a native program.
- Put the application on a USB stick, into your synchronized folder (like Dropbox) or similar. Start it from there, go
to preferences and activate the option Portable. Next select a
todo.txtdirectory on the USB Stick/synchronized folder/similar and you're done!
