Follow up on setting up GTD system on Android
After a lot of obstacles and issues beyond my control (such as the outsourcing of the business I worked in), I have finally prioritized to get my Android phone in shape to be able to drop my old Palm Tungsten E that has served me very well for many years.
My current application as a capturing tool on the Android is apMemo (registered for a few dollars). It has the most important features as the Notepad application on the Palm; i.e. date and time stamp for new memos and notification for notes that will risk not to be processed until they are due.
For syncing between Outlook and Android, I use Companionlink Pro (upgraded from earlier version for not so few dollars...). I needed the Pro version to be able to create different profiles; one for syncing Google Calendars to my local .pst-file for use in Outlook to see my family appointments side by side with my work appointments, and another for syncing work calendar, tasks and notes to my Android.
On the Android I also use DejaOffice, (the app suite that is created to work with Companionlink as there is e.g. no native tasks app in Android). I only use the DejaTasks and DejaMemos features in DejaOffice.
For the calendar I use Pimlical (from CESD at Pimlico Software, the same developer that developed DateBk6 that I used on the Palm for many years). Pimlical is not yet really on par with the DateBk6 application, but it has so many features and configurations. When the filtering setup functionality will be included in Pimlical/Android it will be as good as DateBk6 with its view setup. As I have ~10 calendars that I sync to my handheld, I want to be able to quickly filter out the relevant appointments. Today, filtering needs to be setup within Pimlical/Desktop (which I do not use) and then copied to the handheld.
Another of my critical apps on the Palm was Secret!, that I used to store passwords in an encrypted database. Accompanied with the Desktop application for Windows, I'm all set again with the Secret! app for Android.
I ditched my initial idea to use a separate cellphone and the Android as a PDA only, and I use the Android phone for all the stuff. Anyhow, there are not so many phone calls nowadays and with a good BT headset from Jabra it works fine.
