Results of GTD Outlook Add-In Request Feature Survey
Thanks to the many people in the GTD Outlook Add-In user community who responded to our GTD Outlook Add-In most requested features survey. After reviewing the results of the survey, itís clear there are several potential development paths. The feature that ranked highest was a request to develop a simplified GTD Add-In like application for handheld devices. We are pursuing discussions with the David Allen Company to discuss our existing agreement and to understand their directions on software development to determine if this is realistic.
The lowest ranked feature, by far, was for a 64 bit application. Survey respondents ranked features such as creating task dependencies, improving project details, adding new related task functionality, and other features much higher. While we have had some interest in a 64 bit application, the number of people requesting this feature was very small in proportion to the rest of the user base. Developing a 64 bit Add-In requires a substantial effort, which has very high costs for what is still a fairly small market. We donít take the request lightly; however, given limited resources, we will postpone development of a 64 bit application until such time as we believe the market is large enough to validate the needs of the entire GTD Add-In customer base.
We will announce our development path for the GTD Outlook Add-In by mid-December.

Bad News...Netcentrics drops plans for 64-bit version of GTD Plugin
Netcentrics announced right before Christmas that based on their market survey, there weren't enough users of 64-bit Outlook to make it viable for them to develop 64-bit Outlook.

I'm a bit surprised at the amount of complaining they've done about the effort required to develop a 64-bit product, other companies seem to have no problems doing so. Time will tell if Netcentrics made the right decision, I guess.
64-bit Outlook is incredible, btw.
Another GTD software user lost to 64 Bit
I just replace my system at the office and did not realized I could not use GTD with 64 bit Outlook. I notified NetCentric that I am interested in a 64 Bit option. Does anyone know an alternative? It's been only 1 day and I already miss it!
Open Source alternative for Outlook
for all of you living in Outlook: Jello Dashboard maybe an alternative to netcentrics.
It's opensource, it supports exchange, it's based on tasks and categories, therefore you can have all your tasks on your mobile device if it supports syncing to outlook tasks or exchange.
It's a bit rough around the edges in some cases...
