I’ve been a fan of GTD for quite a few years now. Over those years I’ve tried out and used quite a few different web apps and other tools in my quest for a tool that fits GTD and me. I’ve used Remember the Milk, Toodledo, MS Outlook, MS OneNote, Lotus Notes, and I’ve tried out a bunch more, including Productive, Nirvana, Doit.im, Wunderlist, and Asana.
In all these tools, there’s always some critical flaw, usually one of these big four:
- No Start Date (a start date is a must for an uncluttered task list, and most tools lack it)
- No Subtasks (like RTM) or poorly implemented subtasks (like Toodledo)
- Poor support for projects (especially small projects)
- Too expensive (like Nozbe)
I came upon GTDNext recently, and I just say that I am very impressed with it. Start date, check; subtasks, check (and very nicely implemented–I love the outline approach); good project support, check; price, free (although I think the Premium account should be a bit less expensive); sensible next action handling, check; support for GTD contexts and areas (and filtering based on them), check; a way to see which project an action is associated with, check; and I could go on.
In my opinion, the current feature set of the web app is already far better at supporting a GTD workflow than any other tool that I’ve tried. Thanks, and keep up the good work!
Of course, it is still lacking a few things, like an iOS app, but I’m confident that is coming. Another wish high on my list would be multi-selection (to apply tags to more than one task at a time for example).
