    My Windows/iPhone system is the same as WAR's. iMexchange2 has worked really well for me for tasks/notes.

      I'm in the same camp - i use Windows at work and have an iphone, and i want some amount of GTD capabilities on the iphone.

      So i manage my tasks and projects in Outlook 2007 with the netcentrics plugin. I use activesync to sync email, calendar, contacts and tasks to the iphone (a 4S running 5.0.1), but don't like the iOS Reminders app. (and it doesn't seem to offer very much in the way of GTD-ability). So for tasks on the iphone, i use Remember the Milk, with its Outlook Connector and iphone app. The RTM iphone app doesn't seem too bad. The sync path is more or less from Outlook to RTM's website, and from there to iphone. This was pretty easy to set up, I've been using it for about 5 days and it's gone ok so far.

        Try Things

        I have been using Things on my iPad for the last few months and was the best thing I ever did to get GTD going again. My lists are starting to attract me again and has put my relationship with GTD on a new footing that I know I will never loose.
        It is not web based and obviously very porrtable on your iPad.

          I use the Netcentrics Add-In and Microsoft Exchange at work. I sync my tasks and outlook notes to my iPhone using iMExchange 2. It allows me to view my tasks by context on the iPhone and my notes by category . . .
          Sounds great, but must you have Outlook on desktop up and running for syncing to occur? If so, then when you are out of the office and Outlook is not running what do you do?

            I use appigo todo on iphone, then sync it to outlook using the appigo sync app. To sync the outlook calendar do that via itunes. The disadvantages to this system is that you need to manually do the syncs. Also the appigo sync app seems to be a bit flaky for me.

              If you're on an Exchange server then no, it doesn't matter whether Outlook is open on your local machine. Your data (calendar items, tasks, notes, etc.) are stored on the Exchange server. The various iPhone apps access the Exchange server to get the data.

                Maybe I'm not outlook savvy enough, but I set up my tasks following the setup guide (nice clear instructions by the way), and then I entered all my 'stuff' from all my current lists (I use basecamp for that right now but wanted something with more flexibility to move among lists).

                Then I got to work this morning, and there was nothing there. I entered everything from home, and it appears outlook has local storage of tasks.

                Is that right? Am I doing something wrong? I access my work from at least three and often five different computers in a given workweek so this is a non starter for me if its really the way outlook works.

                    Toodledo

                    I use ToodledoI as my backed to various front end apps on devices:

                    iPad - pocket informant
                    Android phone - Due Today

                    On the Pc I will either use Toodledo.com or taskunifer or task angel

                    On my Mac at home usually just use the web site. I did purchase task surfer, but can't say I'm all that fond of it.

                      Toodledo sync

                      Here is a list ov everything toodledo syncs with. Quite a huge selection of apps.

                        You could try MyLifeOrganized (MLO)

                        It has a standalone windows program (that syncs with Outlook) as well as synch'ing with an online service.

                        This, in turn, syncs with an iPhone App and there's an iPad App in the works.

                        The iPhone App isn't the slickest in the world, but is functional. The real bonus is the Windows program which is incredibly flexible in it's set up.

                        cheers

                          Paper is simply not even an option at all for me

                          Carrying iPad, iPhone, Macbook Air and Windows PC at the same time would be an overkill though. No need for 2 laptops when you can install windows on a mac anyway or use remote desktop, or use remote desktop on ipad.
                          me also use it. Now a days everyone using mobile phones, ipad and etc

                            organize app

                            I've played with this one a bit, has an ipad, iphone, mac and pc client, also has wifi sync which isn't available in the trial so not sure how well that works. I think it's pretty new but it looks quite interesting:

                              After a few months, could you report on your experience with Organize? I'm getting my iPhone tomorrow, which puts me in the category of folks looking for solutions to Windows computer with outlook/exchange and iPhone for my GTD system. After reading this thread I'll look at Toodledo and Things, wondered what you thought of Organize since it's the first I've heard of this one.

                              Thanks,

                                I'm also in the Windows + iPhone/iPad camp, any updates here, and has anyone tried Thinking Rock? It's written in Java, so works on Windows, Mac, whatever, and there's an iPhone/iPad app where you can see the state of your projects etc, and add new thoughts when you think of them.
