I don’t usually care much for Kickstarter projects, mostly because I rarely find one that fits what I need. But when Troy sent me a link to his new project Taco, I knew I had to share it with you all (or ya’ll as they say here in Tennessee).
If you’re like me, you’ve probably got to-dos scattered all over the place. There’s some in Basecamp for feature requests, some in GitHub for bugs that customers reported, and then don’t forget about the odd home to-do list that’s over in Gmail. Taco puts all those to-dos in one place.
I really like two parts of the design:
- It’s super simple without lots of junk cluttering things. I’m a fan of less is more and Taco delivers on simplicity.
- You can’t create tasks in Taco. That’s right – it’s only for seeing your tasks and deciding which ones to work on at that moment.
If that sounds like something you’d like, then go support the team behind it. You can find their Kickstarter page here.

Thanks, Chase. We’ve been prototyping Taco on ourselves for almost 2 years and have seen the impact. It’s painfully true that “A man with one task list knows what to work on; a man with two lists is never sure.”
Taco is the smallest great solution to this problem. Here’s another screenshot.
Also, we’re serious about involving backers. Our first update has examples: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tacoapp/taco-basecamp-to-zendesk-all-your-tasks-in-one-pla/posts/510576
Because our backers are our stakeholders, we’re posting “thought process” emails which started out private: http://blog.tacoapp.com/post/53118617218/transparency-and-the-unedited-email-which-led-to-our
Troy, for Taco

Just noticed that with the $50 backing, you get “all Sustainer rewards plus Troy’s email address.” Pretty cool to get direct access to you like that!
