“TimeTo has been a godsend to me. I used to spend tons of time feeling guilty when I had to re-schedule items that I Had Not Done; now it’s pretty much done automagically.”

In Light Mode, TimeTo™ simply helps you track your responsibilities and appointments. However, switch to Pro Mode (you can go back and forth any time) and TimeTo™’s powerful yet understandable abilities kick in:

The most significant is that you can tell TimeTo™ your priorities, your preferences, and your rules as to what can be done when… then TimeTo™ will automatically draft your schedule for you, refreshing it continuously if you wish. Using this revolutionary approach to managing your time, TimeTo™ will help you focus on what’s most important, while ensuring you rarely drop a ball or forget a commitment.

TimeTo is not just a day planner… it can be the central place for everything in your life: your notes, your diary, everything… it becomes the one place that everything links back to: the trusted funnel where things go in as well as the record of what you achieved and how.

    Any update on a Google Drive-based TimeTo light?
    I’m away from my home pc so often that I had to stop using the software, and I miss it! I’d love to alpha test once you’ve got something going.

  2. Francisco says:

    I am a huge TimeTo fan. I used it for years before switching to Mac, at which point, I ran Windows on Parallel *just* to be able to run TimeTo as well. I would also be very happy to alpha or beta test either the Mac version or the Google version.

    Please feel free to contact me. Thanks!

    • ben@davidberman.com says:

      Perfect: we’ll put you on the notifications list for when we have something ready to test. How large an organization are you in (we ask because we are also developing an adjunct for workgroups).

      • Francisco says:

        Sorry for my delay–just now seeing this. Thank you for adding me to the notifications list. I am actually a sole proprietor, so it would just be me testing it. Thank you! Can’t wait to see it!

  3. Alejandro says:


    I would live to test your Google Drive based TimeTo Light.

    Hi. There is not a native TimeTo for Mac, however you can run it successful using Parallels Desktop for Mac.
    Regarding a cloud edition, we are currently working on a Google Drive based TimeTo Light. Please tell us if you’d be interested in being an alpha site for that.

    • steven@davidberman.com says:

      Great: we’ll put you on the alpha test list. We’ll be in touch once we’re ready. Regards!

  4. Alejandro says:

    Hi, I would like to know if there is an alternative of TimeTo for Mac or a cloud solution.

      • Jessica says:

        Ben, you just made my heart soar! I **LOVE** TimeTo (even paid for it), but the interface is getting awfully dated, and not being able to take it with me became a dealbreaker about two years ago. If you need more alpha testers, I would jump at the opportunity.

      • Craig Kennedy says:

        Would love to be an alpha tester

      • Nick Cohen says:

        I would love to be an Alpha tester as well. I’ve been using it for over three years, and would love to assist.

      • Martin says:

        I’d love to be an alpha / beta tester for either google or an android version.

  5. Sandy Sutherland says:

    Hi David. I’m a big fan of TimeTo – been using it for years. These days (almost) everyone carries a smart phone with them, so I definitely support the idea of a web-based version to keep me on track when I’m out of the office.

    • David Berman says:

      Agreed! We’re working on a Google Docs based extension for Web users, as well as a version for Windows Slate tablets. We’re also seeking a coder to help us port it to Android tablets too, and eager to collaborate on that with any Android whizzes.

  6. Petronella says:

    I love using TimeTo on my desktop. I would like to use it on my iPhone and I am willing to pay for this app. There is nothing like it!
    Please, find a developer!

    • steven@davidberman.com says:

      Understood! We’re actually more likely to be on iPad before iPhone, because we need the additional screen real estate.

  7. Christian Züger says:

    Hi David,
    it would be great if next version could support sync with Google tasks and Google calendar. For Notes I look forward when they could be more than .txt f.e. html (for hyperlinks) and anything like attachments would be a nice feature.
    Christian Züger

    • steven@davidberman.com says:

      Thank you for your input Christian. We’ve just rolled out an alpha release with a new feature that links TimeTo items with Google Contacts. We’re studying our next step, as we agree that Google Calendar sync and Google Tasks sync would be great as well.Regarding Notes, our challenge is that users use them as generic text, so we were looking to go to .rtf… however your idea of instead going with HTML is rather brilliant! If you’d like to contact us to have a “design think” about how we can do that while remaining backwards compatible, contact me!

  8. Stephanus Kilian says:

    TimeTo is an excellent software, but … yellow on white for the dynamic tasks in the navigator? Isn’t that one of the big no-no’s of graphic design when it comes to the use of colour? Can one or both of these colours not be changed easily to improve contrast?

    • steven@davidberman.com says:

      Regarding our use of yellow in the 31-Day Navigator, we’re open to suggestions on how to improve it for accessibility purposes. The yellow is how we currently show relative urgency (in this tool, and other places in the program, sliding on a scale from white indicating time balance, yellowness indicating risk, and redness indicating conflict. So the fact that you are seeing yellow indicates that we are trying to visually disturb you into correcting your not-quite-optimized schedule…. make sense? Perhaps we should chooose a deeper yellow that has a higher contrast ratio against the white, to assist low-vision people?

  9. Alain Jackson says:

    Is there any way to sync dynamically with toodle do?

    • steven@davidberman.com says:

      Yes, TimeTo syncs dynamically with all versions of Microsoft Outlook (except for Exchange Server).

  10. Frieda says:

    Any plans for a TimeTo Android (or any other mobile) app?

  11. Stephanus says:

    Only fixed appointments sync from my Timeto to Outlook; flexible items scheduled by Timeto do not. Are these items supposed to sync with Outlook?

    • steven@davidberman.com says:

      Yes this should work for all versions of Outlook, EXCEPT Outlook Exchange Server, which we are still working on.

  12. petrhorak says:

    Hello, I’m using free version of your software. It’s awesome. I would like to ask you whether you are planning any version for linux because our computers will be migrated soon.

    • Heather McAlister says:

      Hi. We don’t have a Linux edition; however our source code is in C , and we’re not strong on Linux … so if there was a Linux programmer interested in compiling for Linux we’d be very open to working together to make that so!

  13. Michael Stephens says:

    Is there an iPad app for TimeTo ??

    • Heather McAlister says:

      Hi. There is a not at this time. We’re actually looking for a Mac developer who would be interested in helping us compile it for Mac. Part of our concern is that TimeTo is like the Buckley’s Mixture of priority management software. It’s so powerful … and ugly! The antithesis of the Apple simple look and feel, so we’re concerned that it may be seen as very “un-iPad”!

  14. Benyang Tang says:

    Hi David,

    I purchased Timeto a few years ago, but I switched by to A&B later. Now I want to use Timeto again. Somehow I cannot install Timeto on my Windows 7 laptop. After I answered all steps in the installation process, nothing happened.

    Benynag Tang

    • David Berman says:

      Hi Benyang. How odd: I’m sure we’ll get to the bottom of this, as most of our users use Windows 7. Have you tried searching your hard drive for the file TimeTo or TimeTo.exe in order to locate where TimeTo has been installed? We welcome you to email our support desk at timetosupport @ davidberman.com … for instance we can do a remote control session on your computer if you’d like, in order to discover or fix the issue.
