Keeps dropping icons and producing spinning beachball
Use to be stable. I’ve used it for years. But now it’s very unreliable and if I hover over where the icon should appear in the menu bar all I get is a spinning beach ball. So very buggy. Hope it gets fixed but I have to go find something else now.
App not dead, but location for data file has moved.
The app isn’t dead, but it isn’t migrating your old data file to its new location. The old data file is in your Users library under Application Support/Checkoff. The new location for the data file is also in your Users library. It’s too long for me to try to replicate here. Go to preferences in checkoff. The first entry under “General” will give you the new location. Quit the app, drag your old file to the new location (make a copy of it first perhaps!), replacing the existing file and restart the app. Should work. I’m not the developer, just a user who’s wrassled with this mess and come up with a solution. I believe you may also simply be able to point the app in the direction of your old data file - under the preferences that I’ve already mentioned there’s an option for specifying where the app should look for the data file. Again, perhaps worth it to make a copy before you do that.
Now is v 5.1.3 and is no longer works!
I have been using Check Off since it's a freeware, and I purchased a paid version when I received my new MacBook Pro. I am not sure when did it start, either in v 5.1.2 or v5.1.3, this app stop working all together on my Mac; it lost connection to my database, I can't make new entry, I can't save anything, error message keeps popping up, etc. I loved this app, but sadly I have to delete it after this review, because it's no longer usable anymore. I really hope the developer will fix it, especially for the people who installed Lion, ML and the up coming OS X Mavericks. For now, this app deserves no star, but I have to leave one. I'll change my review to more stars if this situation changes.
No longer works
Loved this easy-to-use software. Upgraded and data files were overwritten. Can't restore via Time Machine. Also, the version I download is labeled 5.1.3 and it not only destroys your old files but it doesn't work. I can't even add a folder or event. Check Off has Checked out.
This works very well for me.
I used to write things down on paper so that I would not forget and of course the paper would get buried under everything on my desk, so then I would start a new list which isn't very efficient. This app keeps it right in front where I have easy access all the time. I like the color capabilities and ease of use. It is simple. I need simple. I've recommended this to my daughter. I don't have a phone to sync with (yet) but I know it will be great to have this app when I do eventually have one.
