I have looked at it. It's in Java, and multiplatform (PC, Mac, Linux), but I have tested it only on a mac. The data is in a single xml file, and should be portable between architechtures. I think the interface is a little clunky, probably because it's Java, but flexible and useable. I'm not sure how it would do if I scaled up to my actual volume of projects and next actions.
People are discovering TR as a wonderful tool to do all the phases of GTD.
It works in Mac and Windows, it is stored as a xml file.
There is a demo that explain clearly how to use it with pratical examples.
It is easy to use, easy to load, works offline.There is a good forum and kind answers from the developers.
I am very happy because I am learning how to collect all thoughts and process them. The more I write the projects following the steps TR offers (exactly what DA wrote), the more I realise how many ideas I can produce just because I've found the proper stimuli.
I'm a big palm user asnd currently using Agendus as my "all-powerful" calendar/memo/to-do/contacts manager. I downloaded thinkingrock and sort of toyed around with it. I like that it is GTD focused. I would use it more if it were a palm application. Any chances of coming out with a Palm version?
This thing is great. It truely adheres to the GTD workflow rather than just being a hacked todo list manager. The developers are actively answering questions on their forums, enhancing the software, and planning new releases.
I'd highly recommend this application to beginners and seasoned GTD gurus alike as it keeps you in the GTD mindset.
Just an update, TR2 epsilon is the current version and it is open source, with TR2 promised in the coming weeks.
I cannot praise Jeremy and Claire highly enough for this product (I am not a TR employee - just an avid user), it really has helped me work more efficiently with less stress, its development seems to be very much user-led and totally in line with the David Allen approach.
Overall, I like Thinking Rock...but here is my pet peeve. I like to print a report of next actions...and TR dumps everything to a .pdf, and it's not editable, so you get what you get. It's small for me, the font is small, so it's sort of a pain to read or carry around...I wish there were more choices for the way the pages display, because even those are pretty small on a laptop screen, and I'd like more choices on output. It's good, and clearly the price is right, but I wish it was a little more customizable. Thanks.
