    1. GTD plug in for outlook.
    2. Toodledo services.
    3. Google Calendar.
    4. Informant for the iPhone.

    I am considering Ceptara for Outlook instead of the GTD plug in. It has better support for Toodledo Project and Context tags – where currently only context via a free based synch.

    Has anyone had experience with Ceptara? Or has experienced migrating from GTD to Ceptara – 600 task / projects is daunting.

    1. GTD Add-In for outlook

    2. Executor (more than a application launcher)

    3. Total commander

    4. MindManager

    5. Word expander

    These are the tools actually improving my productivity most in the Windows environment.
    You might miss the sync to a handheld/phone but to be honest most of the time I do not work with my cellphone. I have my tasks in Pocket Informant (iPhone) with the categories from the GTD Add-In but considering the time I have to do something with them on the phone I would not put them in the top 5.
