Offline + sync iPhone/PC app?
So I got an iPhone about a year ago. I've been using google Tasks to manage my lists, but I find myself resistant to using them, and I know why--it's just not flexible enough. I often find that I'm offline and need to add something, or I'm processing and I don't have a strong enough signal. I can't add things or check things off my lists on the fly.
(I was an analog GTD-er for years and am seriously contemplating going back to my moleskine pocket notebook for my action lists.)
I've tried also using an add-on to gTasks called Google Tasks Offline, which kind of solves this problem, but not quite to the degree I'd like.
Can any of you point me toward an iPhone app which
a) can manage about 7-9 context lists
b) tasks can be added/checked off even when the phone is offline
c) will sync to PC
Thanks in advance.
I can recommend Toodledo (www.toodledo.com) + Toodledo Iphone app.
To sync with PC there are multiple options but I use gSyncit (www.gSyncit.com)
I recommend Appigo Todo (http://www.appigo.com/todo).
It has a really nice interface, is intuitive and easy to use. It has an Inbox, supports any number of custom lists, contexts and tags and handles projects really well. Appigo also provide a free applet to sync with Outlook (http://www.appigo.com/appigo-sync). It can also sync over the air with Todo Online (Appigo's own web-based task manager) or to Toodledo. So lots of options.
Yes I can...Astrid. Although first written for the Android platform, I have iPhone colleagues that use it heavily and it will do everything you ask in your post above. You can check it out at astrid.com
I'm not surprised you can't make google tasks works; I don't think it's very good. I like Toodledo, but find Appigo Todo idiosyncratic, even though it can sync to Toodledo. It was interesting to have a look at Astrid- seems like a basic todo list but very cute. In the words of Dorothy Parker, "Tonstant Weader fwowed up."
Have you tried Fetchnotes?
I'm the co-founder of a company called Fetchnotes which might be up your alley. You organize your thoughts (to do's, ideas, shopping lists, whatever) with hashtags right in the note, so no extra effort is required like most task software. We have an iPhone app and desktop widget for PC, as well as a web app. Let me know what you think at alex(at)fetchnotes(dot)com.
