Download The Hit List Public Preview Today

Andy Kim, of Potion Factory, has announced that The Hit List is available for everybody as a free download for a public preview.  You can download the pre-release version from the Potion Factory blog.The version number is 0.9.2, inching ever closer to a 1.0 release. The Hit List is free to use as a beta/pre-release product, but will cost $69.95 when it goes 1.0. If you buy before 1.0 arrives, Potion Factory is offering a $20 discount, allowing you to license the GTD app for $49.95. As of yet, there is no official word as to when version 1.0 will ship. On Christmas Day, Andy Kim stated:

The Hit List has been in closed beta for about two weeks now and things have been progressing well. I wanted to release a 1.0 version as soon as possible, but based on the feedback I’m receiving, I’m back to the “it’ll be done when it’s ready” status. The first major feature I have decided to add is recurring tasks.

While I’m certain that THL won’t be THE solution for everybody, I’m very encouraged by the tweets some beta testers are posting. Validation like this is especially gratifying since I’ve been working on it under the radars for so long without receiving a lot of feedback.

I published my review of The Hit List a couple of weeks ago, giving it due praise. Ultimately, I purchased Things (which has gone 1.0 officially as of January 6) for a discounted price of $39.95, using discount code: THINGSPRESALE20, which is still available until January 15, 2009.
