    Also just noticed that WebIS (Pocket Informant people) are beta testing an online system.
    I think Pocket Informant for iPad may be the ugliest app I own. By all means, look at them all. Why should I be the only one to have all the ugly, poorly designed software? Sigh.

      The online version looks really good (probably developed by a third party) although it's in beta and I found it buggy. So I will stick with Appigo Todo Online for now.

          Looking forward to the impending round-up.

          I like the fact that user experience ranks highly, it's all to easy for us geeks to overlook how nice the UI is.

          Now all I need to do is work out how to adapt the results to my requirements

            I agree. If you're using an app/s for GTD, you're going to be using it daily. So you want something that has good usability and is a joy to use. Especially when it comes to weekly reviews, it's all too easy to put them off and great software that you love to use, encourages you to do them.

              Well of course you agree, it's your idea

              Now then, where's that round-up?

                  Good luck with the round up. As an android phone user, I can tell you it's been a frustrating journey trying to find a good combination of web/mobile solution for GTD or any other system for that matter. Generally if the web app is good then the mobile app is poor as is the case with Gqueues and Asana. Or conversely the mobile app is good but the web apps are horrible - witness Google Tasks and Toodledo (IMO).

                  Two more you could throw into the mix are Producteev which now has a fairly basic but functional mobile app, and Astrid which now has a fairly basic but functional web app to match it's outstanding mobile product. One day we'll get the happy marriage!

                    I just read through previous threads and see you have already covered both Astrid and Producteev so my apologies for recommending them as two which you could look at for future reviews!

                    In any case I'll be interested to see which combination you've found best for your own purposes. Producteev looks promising since they've relaunched the new web app except there's now no Google Calendar sync which for me is a bit of a deal breaker.

                      Producteev and Wunderlist look good, except they're missing some GTD elements.

                      I've found Doit.im nice and simple for a newcomer to GTD, although I'd like to be able to have projects within projects (I don't even know if that fits with GTD, as I haven't done my reading yet, but I assume sub-projects are ok).

                      Irritatingly the offline Windows Doit app is missing a bit of functionality from the web version (simply a case of the developers not fitting some buttons etc).

                      Once I learn the ropes I'm keen to try ThinkingRock. I see Tom hasn't reviewed it as it seemed too complex, but it is really more complex than the multi app Toodledo solutions?

                        I haven't looked at it in a long time, but as I recall t it seemed a bit rigid, and a bit Java-ish, i.e., ugly UI.

                          Wunderlist

                          I'm using Wunderlist now. There are some small things that could be attended to. I was using Astrid which was quite good. Something made me try Wunderlist again and it's working nicely. I've asked them if we can sort Lists alphabetically or numerically, just so you can find your list quickly and if we can hide lists with no tasks attached and waiting to hear back from them. I have an Android phone, tablet and use Windows at work so need to access the web app.

                          I also like Any.Do (nice clean interface but probably not really GTD ready) I really must stop playing with software though.

                          Of course if I had my iPhone I'd be on OmniFocus no question ...

                              I love Wunderlist too, I love its UI and simplicity. I use it in a kind of personal kanban manner for my work projects. Which works but I think it lacks tags/contexts for a GTD system.

                                Producteev

                                Producteev now has an updated native android app out there which supports the sub task feature of the web version. It doesn't have the bells and whistles of Astrid but the sync is much cleaner and it does the job well. So far for me it's the closest I've seen to a perfect combination of web app and mobile version to match.
