  • Blackberry Storm user looking for advice

    Hi all,

    I recently learned of GTD and just finished reading David Allen's book; I don't think I've ever read a book so quickly before .

    In any case, I know others have tried this before (many unsuccessfully), but I would very much like to keep track of my projects and tasks using as few sources as possible. Ideally, it would all be on my Blackberry Storm.

    That said, I've discovered that the support for Storm-based GTD software is not nearly as strong as I'd hoped. I have tried Todomatrix, Next Action!, Viira, and other programs, but they all have major issues that make it a deal-killer for me. For instance, TDM is a great program with high funcionality, but I cannot get the web-based desktop to sync properly with the device. Furthermore, none of these programs have fully compatible touchscreen input. Basically, they're still largely based on the "rollerball" of other Blackberries.

    I'm currently at a loss as to how I can most effectively implement the GTD program on my Storm. I've basically fallen back to using Blackberry's native task list, but it's already falling short given the 200+ tasks I have at any given time. If you own a Storm, and if you've found a way to effectively implement GTD on it, would you mind sharing your wisdom?

    Thanks!
    Mike

    Mike, I don't use a storm, but does the native task app allow you to parse those 200 tasks to different contexts? If so, that may be all you need.

      Have your tried Task Master (by the makers of NextAction!). It adds a bit of functionality to the native Tasks app that allows quick switching between categories (contexts). I can't vouch for its performance on a Storm, but it works well on my Curve.

        I just started a thread about this on my GTD blog:

          Thanks all,

          I've decided to continue using the native task application until a Storm-friendly program appears. I'm using the categories to parse the tasks into various "contexts" and "projects". It seems to be working decently thus far.

          I've thought about Task Master, but unfortunately, I don't think it's currently programmed for the 95XX BB series.

            todo matrix

            I am using a Storm running .148 and ToDoMatrix running v2009.01.05.47 tmx and I LOVE IT!

            I rarely use any other programs now. I tie it into my calendar because there is always STUFF associated with meetings and appointments.

            It integrates very well with all alarms and reminders.

            The Storm itself can be quite buggy so I would encourage you to try ToDoMatrix again. It has really cleared things up for me.
