I first saw the Hit List via a blog post over at The Unofficial Apple Weblog back in December 08.
Well, the application is now at public beta and you can download it to have a play with it.
The Hit List has come from the Potion Factory, the people behind applications such as Voice Candy and Tangerine.
I would compare The Hit List more to Things than OmniFocus. It looks great, is clean and simple with a great polish. OmniFocus has features coming out of its ears and great integration options.
I have downloaded and installed The Hit List. I am also about to embark on a good look at Things 1.0 so I will report back with a review of both the apps.
Competition is always good and OmniFocus and Things do have a real competitor here with The Hit List. An iPhone companion application is a must so watch this space as I would love to be able to see The Hit List on the iPhone as well.
Take a look and I would love to hear any comments.
