  • Psion and GTD

    Is anybody still using a Psion to GTD ? I've gone through Palms and PPCs over the last 5-6 years and have just resurrected a Psion Revo. I'm curious to hear if any die-hard Psion fans are putting these machines to good use ?

    Psion for GTD

    I continue to use Psion, though not for GTD. Over a period of time I realized I need to use PDA for taking notes, jotting thoughts, brainstorming etc. Revo is ideal for that.

    From my familiarity with Revo, I would say that one could easily setup categories in Agenda for various task groups (@work...etc.). And this could mimic Outlook setup if one has that.

      The PSION does have some nice features for GTD:
      - mulitple 'ToDo'lists, which can be set to view (or not) on the agenda
      - the agenda can link to files (support material)
      - RMRTask is one of the best task managers
      - bigger screen
      - real wordprocessor / spreadsheet
      - Plan5, project manager MS Project compatible

      Problem:
      The sync to Outlook is not the best, it works but can make duplicates evry once in a while if modifications done on both desktop and handheld.

        Psion

        Your post brought back great memories!! I loved my Psion 5mx; there has been nothing that I have used yet that compares to it. Too bad it was stolen in Melbourne Airport two years ago. I wish (pathetically) that somebody would resurrect that great range of PDAs.

          Ah, Psion. They were so great. If I were a billionaire, I'd buy the company just to force them to make more (and better) PDAs.

          There are some Symbian-base phones that are basically the children of the old EPOC-based devices, but I've never read a review of someone that went from one to another.

            The only similarity between Psions and Symbian phones is solid and stable operating system based on EPOC. The PIM functions are written from scratch. For example calendar lacks the anniversary list that was present on Psion 3.
