Nitro is more advanced than simple, and primarily intended for Linux users. Using the web app, however, users of any operating system can give Nitro a shot. Is it right for you? Let’s take a look.

Using Nitro

If you’ve ever used a to-do list program, the main interface of Nitro certainly won’t confuse you. You’ll see the usual way to sort your tasks, including the time and date something is due, and optional lists:

The top categories break things down depending on the dates you’ve assigned tasks, while the “lists” are essentially categories you design.

In any of these lists you can add tasks. You can also add notes. Unlike other solutions, the note field shows up while you’re adding a task. This makes adding notes a snap:

By default Nitro only works on a single computer. Syncing is easy, however, thanks to Dropbox and Ubuntu One Ubuntu One: An Unknown But Worthy Contender In Cloud Storage Ubuntu One: An Unknown But Worthy Contender In Cloud Storage Just a little over a week ago, a lot of news was made in the world of personal cloud storage, where Dropbox added more sharing features, SkyDrive introduced their new synchronization application for desktops, and...

The sync was slow for me, occasionally to the point of being unusable. I’m sure the team is working on it, but if this is important for you you might want to look elsewhere for now.

For the sake of all that is sacred – don’t load the Justin Bieber skin. It’s not worth it.

Set Up Nitro

Ready to get started? Head to NitroTasks. You can log in there using your Dropbox or Ubuntu One account, or download the program if you prefer using desktop software. There are packages for Ubuntu and Arch Linux, and source code for industrious users of other Linux distros.

Sorry, I can’t help you compile the code. Ask at MakeUseOf Answers before doing so in the comments below.

Conclusion

Yeah, it’s another to-do list. But this is a rare native program for Linux not yet found on other platforms. Even better – it’s really good. I hope the sync improves in the future, because I think I’ll have a new favorite to-do program when it does.
