Managing your tasks at the command line with TaskBook

Final Thoughts

TaskBook isn't for you if you need your task management tool to send regular reminders, integrate with apps on your phone, or telnet your Internet-connected coffeemaker to start brewing. If, on the other hand, you need a tool that is quick, simple, and visually appealing, then TaskBook is a great choice to keep you on task and organized.
