    I’d love to see a guide for TaskPaper for the Mac.

  2. Steve Rankine says:

    I would be very interested in seeing your approach to adapting ACT! to the GTD methodology. I have done it in a way that works for me and would be interested in collaborating on this to our mutual benefit.

    I would like to see a guide for “Things” for the Mac (and iOS iPhone & iPad). It has a structure that should work well with the GTD methodology and I would like to see how you’d set up the guide.

  4. Keith Heavey says:


    I would love to see a setup guide for a web-based tool/app called IQTELL, They seemed to have done a really great job with putting together their knowledge base and help videos showing how they incorporate GTD but I would love for you guys to go and dive in there and see if you can implement a guide with the purest GTD practices possible!

    Thanks in advance!

  6. Bart Weinberger says:

    I’d love to see a make your own bundle option.

  7. Mark Wylie says:

    I suspect it’s already in the pipeline, but I would like to see a guide for OneNote for Mac.

  8. Alex Fürstenau says:

    I am using Things on Mac, iPhone, iPad for 5 years or so. I tested OmniFocus, Wunderlist, Todoist, Asana, 2do and many other apps.

    I would still be interested in how you would use Things.


  9. Would love to see a guide for Cultured Code”s “Things”, when they revamp it and release version 3.

  10. Mike says:

    Would love to see a GTD with Nozbe booklet.

  11. Evren Atesalp says:

    What about Trello? I already use Trello for maintaining my personal ToDos, but it would be interesting to see GTD in action on Trello.

    In case needed, here is the url:

    David, Steve,
    I too would be interested in looking at a CRM solution. I use Act! So going that route would interest me.
    Steve, I live in the UK and would be interested in hearing what you have done.
    Don’t think this forum is the place to divulge email addresses but I would be happy if David or one of his colleagues forwarded you mine. Not sure if that is allowable, Data Protection and all that.
    Regardless of the above, I have the Outlook and Evermore and they prove to be very helpful, so one on Act or a generic CRM would get my vote and my devalued £stg..

    ToDoist. After trying a million of these, this is now (as has been for about a year), my one and only GTD app (windows, Web, Android) (although more GTD help is needed to use it fully).

  14. bkmacy says:

    I love the app called, “Things” by Cultured Code According to it’s website it was developed based on the GTD methodology and I have found it intuitive for at least my implementation of GTD. Love to be able to compare to a reference. Things supports iPhone, Apple Watch, Mac & iPad. It keeps everything synced and works flawlessly. It is the best software implementation of GTD I’ve ever used and I have previously used Outlook, Mac Notes/Tasks, Evernote, Lotus Notes, and paper-based. Easily the best solution over these. I consider Outlook a distant second…
