Need a Windows/Android "auto next action" solution
I have a particular problem. I have several dozen linear projects that have several tasks and once I manually set the list in priority order, I simply have to process the "next action" for each project.
Currently I use Toodledo, and Due Today on Android.
Problem is, because of the number of projects (nature of my work) I am starting to spend more time going back to my system to manually select the "next action" rather than just burning through a list of things to do. I feel like I am doing a review twice a day and it is becoming cumbersome.
After chatting to a few GTD guru buddies (who are Mac heads and use Omnifocus) I need a solution that:
Can do Windows and Android
Is hopefully able to sync to the cloud
AUTOMATICALLY PROMOTES NEXT TASK IN MY PROJECT TO THE NEXT ACTION STATUS.
I have been searching for so long for a software solution and can't seem to find something that does all three.
Any suggestions would be oh so welcome!
I am too lazy to write it all down!
There are only few projects in my life that really require detailed planing (listing of all the actions).

most of my plans don't change
I think that can vary a lot with the person and the work. If I spend time planning a project really well according to the natural planning model I can pretty much know that 85-90% of them will run true to plan, even when the plan takes years or decades to get to completion. For me it's the projects I don't think need any planning that change. Once I stop and actually run the planning model they are usually pretty stable from then on.

My world just fell apart!
I was in a meeting and flipped open my phone only to discover that the MLO Android client (on phone and tablet, it's the same client) is not able to give you a list of tasks by context.
I sat across from my colleague hanging my head in shame when I told him there were 4 things I needed to talk to him about (the app shows the entry "@Agenda-Chris (4)) but there was no way I could actually list what they were!
Anyone know of an Android app that can:
Sort by context?
- Tags AND contexts?
- Drag and drop sort?
- Auto next action?
- Windows client (or fast responsive equivalent)?
- Cloud sync?
PLEASE, no comments about not needing auto next action. I have had that discussion. I run multiple projects and am really dependent on the function. Otherwise I will spend too much time fiddling with setting up my next action, rather than letting software do it for me.
Thanks in advance.
