GTD in your phone. Help to choose app. 3 finalist.
Hello, Im new in GTD and I´m looking for an APP to my phone that can work like David Allen his methodology. After having tried several APPs and online task managers system that can sync, I need to choose between 3 i liked.
GetItDoneapp is a very good app, easy to use, the web site sync with the app, and it sync with google calendar too. I like it, because it works like the GTD book told me.
Remember the milk. Very complete task manager, can sync with google calendar and the website. Not to easy to use, but maybe I need more time with this.
Google task manager. I liked too, but it is maybe not too complete like Getitdoneapp or Remember the milk.
Did you read the GTD book and you use one of these app? Plese tell me why I must to choose one of these app. (and why not)
Thanks for your help!
I used to use GTM because I can assign tasks to any email I receive and the interface is simple enough that I'm not spending a lot of time playing with options. I just made a list for each context and ran with it. Currently, however I started using SpringPad because I'm offline about half the time and it syncs my lists automatically. My advice is to download 10 of the highest rated ones and after two weeks stick with the one you use.

Honestly, I don't care for any of your choices very much. GetItDone was very buggy as of a few weeks ago. Google tasks seems too simple, and I don't care for the web interface of RTM. My advice is to look at the most highly-rated gtd apps around.
I've been using RTM. I'm not completely satisfied, but it's serviceable. The Web interface is ponderous to edit. If you learn the shortcuts, however, adding tasks is decent. The Android app is very good.
I'd like to use Google tasks, but I'd like a slightly more robust interface than the popup window on the bottom of gmail. Still, for I'm a big fan of simplicity, and gtm is very simple.
I tried RTM and found it clunky to use with GTD, although there is an extension for Firefox (and maybe Chrome) that provides an improved interface (called something like A Better RTM). RTM has a nice iPhone app, although the free version is limited.

This setup requires more manual processing than some web apps, but it's free and keyboard shortcuts (like shift-return to access the notes part of a task, and tabbing) can help speed the process. Also, using X's and asterisks can help flag items or mark them as done.
Having said all that, I'm trying to work on my GTD flow using paper right now, but in the long run may go with GTasks (advantages: free; can be embedded in GCal if tasks are given a due date and also can show in GCal's sidebar; has the canvas view; syncs with a nice third-party, inexpensive iPhone app called GeeTasks; may someday be updated by Google) or perhaps go with Omnifocus (which offers more features/power, flagging, good iPhone and iPad apps, and is testing cloud synching).
Another Vote for OmniFocus
I tried Toodledo and Appigo's ToDo for a while, but eventually gave them up because the user interface never clicked for me. Toodledo's web interface in particular is just ugly -- which I think either doesn't matter to you at all or else it matters a great deal.
I also tried Things, but agree with a post above that until Things gets cloud sync it's just too painful to deal with.
OmniFocus costs more, but it is powerful, works well, and has an elegant user interface.
Has anyone tried SmartyTask? It's web-based only.
Evernote and Springpad
Evernote and springpad.
Google those & getting things done
I've tried loads including Todo, toodledoo and things but the best by far is Omnifocus. Granted, it's probably the most expensive but you get what you pay for. It handles projects superbly which is a must.
it seems to be too expensive! 99$ per year? this is the cost to buy a software!
