What is Taskpod ?

Taskpod is a desktop application for Podio with quick launcher for tasks and real time notifications.

It also works with third-party notification systems like Growl (Mac), Growl (Windows) and Snarl (Windows). You can try Taskpod free for 30 days, beyond that a license is needed to be purchased. Taskpod is available for Mac OSX, Windows & Linux.
