Schedule Daily Task can add daily tasks to, and remove any task from, your user account's launchd database. Tasks can be applications, AppleScript (bundle) applications, or Automator workflow applications. Apple recommends using launchd instead of cron if you have Mac OS 10.4 or later. Besides adding or deleting the .plist file which defines the task, Schedule Daily Task also also loads/unloads the task with launchctl, so that your add/delete is effective immediately.
Unlike cron jobs, if your computer is off or sleeping when the time for a scheduled task occurs, the task will run, belatedly, when your computer wakes up.
