A Review of Stylish GTD Apps
I'm making the switch to a new GTD system, from my old MyLifeOrganized system. I've decided write up this quest as a series of posts. Here's the first one, with the apps and what I think makes a good GTD app/system. I'm then going to review each shortlisted app in detail.
It'd be great to get some feedback. Especially about if the criteria that GTD worthy apps should be reviewed against and also whether I've missed any apps off the shortlist.
Posted this on your site too:

Have you thought about trying http://www.omnifocus.com, http://www.gqueues.com, http://smartytask.com, http://www.rememberthemilk.com, http://www.nirvanahq.com, http://www.potionfactory.com/thehitlist/, http://culturedcode.com/things/, or https://mail.google.com/tasks/canvas?pli=1?
I really like Omnifocus but currently am not on a Mac at home (but might be later) and at work. GQueues syncs very well with GCal but is not a great interface. Havenít tried SmartyTask, but it looks pretty and useful. RTM I tried but didnít love working with it. Nirvanaís latest beta version is very nice, but could use a great smartphone app. The Hit List and Things I havenít really tried, but Iím sure you know they have their fans. Google Tasks is convenient for GCal, but no doubt too limited, although supposedly an upgrade may come at some point.
And what about paper? I can see why it doesnít meet your criteria, though.
some additional criteria
A couple of other criteria that you might want to consider is how often the app is updated (features added/bugs fixed) and what types of support they provide to users. While these will obviously be hard to operationalise, for me they're key to having confidence in my "trusted system".
Good luck with it,
Looking forward to it, thanks.
I have the same set up as you and am very interested to see what you find. I used Omnifocus for a long time but now I have an Android phone. That's the part that takes a lot of heavy hitters out of the running.
I think that's a good idea. I know some of the sites have a roadmap of features coming soon and are very good at keeping customers informed. For some it might be difficult to work out what there support is like but for the ones that are have active support I'll mention it.
