Getting Things Done

Getting Things Done by David Allen details a fantastic system for getting organized, reducing stress and improving your productivity in a world full of To-Do lists that are too long. Another place to find great help daily is over at I like his version: “Zen to Done” for its simplicity. For electronic tools, there are many to choose from. In this post I will provide links to some of the cool online applications available to help you keep track of your Most Important Tasks as well as Contexts, Projects, and more.
Getting Things Done
Paper Tools

Among the tools needed are a good filing system and good system for collecting, processing, and keeping track of your tasks. For many the best GTD system includes both paper and electronic tools. A simple notebook or, if you prefer, a fancy Moleskin is all you need for collection of your thoughts and tasks. For free printable PDF’s for paper calendars, to-do lists and much more check out D.I.Y. Planner, SVG Planner (for index cards), and 43 Folder’s Hipster PDA Wiki. And for the coolest paper based system, take a look at Pocket Mod.

Electronic GTD Applications – Online and Software Downloads

All the applications listed here are free unless otherwise noted. On all of these I give my opinion. If I don’t like one, that doesn’t mean you won’t love it. So explore. They are all good.

Simple To-Do Lists

My To-Do’s - Features – sharing, RSS feeds from friends, chat. Nice looking notebook style. Includes calendar planner, projects, and priority levels for to-dos.

TODOIST - Features: calendar, projects, keyboard shortcuts, gmail integrations, mobile access, quicksilver, iGoogle plugins, more. Wasn’t the one for me, but it is nicely done.

Joe’s Goals - for simple tracking of your gosls and daily notes. Good for your daily and recurring to-do’s.

Ta-Da List - by the BackPack folks (BaseCamp ). I like this one because it is very simple, nice format, easy to use.

Mojo Note – Simple design. similar to Ta-Da List except it has more features such as sharing, linking, date/time due. Free up to 99 notes, lists, reminders. For $5/month you get: – 100 Lists– 100 Notes– 100 Active reminders– Email tech support– Ad-free experience. Lists have check boxes, but tasks don’t which seems weird to me. I like Ta-Da List better.

– Simple minimalist to do lists. Easy to use. RSS, printing, mobile acccess, and sharing make this attractive. It’s a little slow and you have to enter your curser to make each new entry which is a pain. Can’t see all lists on one page like you can with BackPack (see below). For some people this is a feature they like so that they can’t worry about more than one list at a time. Still worth checking out.

Jotlet - todo list and calendar together. Very nice and simple. Can view by list, day, week or month. Reminders available.

Complete GTD Systems

ToodleDo – This one is very cool. Here are some features: To-Do List, Sharing, Calendar, Scheduler, Goals, Statistics, Learning, Search, Contexts, Import/Export, Connections, Booklet Printer. Some are free (i.e. to-do list & more), some are partially free (you can track life goals, but stats with tasks linked to goals is a paid upgrade) and some are only with the upgrade (such as scheduler). You can sync with Google calendar and more. You should check out this one for sure!

Simple GTD - I like this one a lot because it is simple and at the same time it is flexible.

Thinking Rock - I’ve heard great reviews of this one. I’ve watched the demo’s and it looks very comprehensive. If that is what you are looking for, you should take a look.

Nozbe – Free: limited contexts, projects and file storage. Upgrades cost $2.95/month and up. I haven’t used this much. Backpackit is similar and I like it better. If you want something very complete, you might like this. I tend to like simpler applications.

BackPack - This is one I keep coming back to because it didn’t take a lot of time to figure it out. I can have lists with different names (projects). It has lists, notes, reminders, and “Writeboards” (which can be accessed by multiple users). Calendar feature is a paid upgrade feature, which I don’t need. It has sharing. And you can have multiple pages (5 pages for free), each page with multiple lists, notes, writeboards (2 with free account) etc.

Foldera - “Foldera is a free and intuitive filing system of web-based folders that automatically organizes your work WHILE you work.” In Beta, aimed at teams. Has folders, file sharing, IM, task manager, email, calendar and more.

Stikkit – “little yellow notes that think” talk to the productivity applications you already use, as well as to friends, coworkers and family, giving you a universal remote for your life.” Not for me because it was a little too much work.

– more than just GTD, it aims to have all your info easily at your fingertips including files, images, webclips (RSS), email, documents, sketches, to-do. You need to download this application. Seems like a computer within your computer and the benefit is that you can sync with other computers to “carry” all your “notes” on everything with you. Neat idea. I personally don’t need it, but it looks very cool.

Tasks - this is by Alex King. It is $29.95. The cool thing about this online application is that it can sync with your PDA to bring it with you. And it has a free 21 day trial to see if you like it.

Tasks Jr - free earlier version of Tasks. Here’s the feature comparison chart to see which one is best for you.

GMail GTD – this is a Firefox extension that turns your Gmail into a GTD application. I haven’t used it but I’ve read that people like it. If you love Gmail, this might be the thing for you.

Tracks - nice complete package, uses colors for organizing projects etc. It was more than I needed.

Free Mind - this is a mind mapping software that is free and opensource. It can be used for many things including as a task management system. I haven’t used it this way, but I’ve seen it done. It is worth having for any creative projects you need to think through.

GTD TiddlyWiki Plus – this one looks very cool, but I haven’t had time to really experiment with it too much. You save it on your own computer – client side application.

D3 - another wiki based system. I think this is for real techies. Correct me if I’m wrong. It looks way cool, but more complicated than I have time for.

TiddlySpot – using this “plain” wiki it is a neat tool for having an online journal that is only on your computer, not on the web. But you use this tool in a browser. Of course the uses for this is truly infinite. (This is the plain version of D3 and others that you can choose.)

Neptune - free for 15 day trial. After that it is $10 per year. I’ve checked it out. It’s nice. Not as fast as others. Simple GTD is just as good. But again, you never, know. You might love it.

TaskToy – I like this one too. Can view by Today, Week, or All. It has preset “locations” which are like contexts (home, office, shopping) which doesn’t seem like you can modify. And it has up to 40 projects to which you can color code and assign priority of Low, Med, or High.

Winners – Ones That I Like Best

The ones I use most are: ToodleDo- Ta-Da ListJoe’s Goals -BackPack
The ones I plan to learn more about: TiddlySpotTudumo(see review)

UPDATE: Additional Applications Suggested by Commenters

Jello Dashboard: for use with Outlook
Tudumo- I checked this out. Very nice! Free software download.
IGTD for use with Macs
the upcoming OmniFocus
todo.txt: “For Mac and Linux there is the uber-geeky”

Lastly, you can search for folks using Excel templates for GTD.

UPDATE: April 2008 – More GTD applications – Currently free. Looks very nice. – online application. Very nice look and layout. Has free, basic, and premium versions. This is definitely worth a look!

    My GTD system has changed quite a bit since I started “doing” GTD almost 9 months ago. I started on paper, then moved to a hybrid system using my own Excel GTD system and a couple of PocketMods. For now I have settled on a Windows Mobile PDA with Iliumsoft ListPro as my single, portable GTD system. This is actually going back to the basics of GTD, which is keeping everything out of your head and use a fast, fun and flexible list manager to organize and remind yourself of next actions.

    BTW, thanks for mentioning my GTD Index. I will add GTD apps that you mentioned here that are not currently listed on my GTD Index page.

    June 5th, 2007 at 10:42 am

    I’ve been using the Mac app Ghost Action for about 5 months. It’s free, and it’s a very simple application. Jacob, the always-responsive developer, works hard to keep it streamlined and not let it stray from basic GTD principles. It syncs automatically with iCal.

    June 5th, 2007 at 10:48 am

    Wow! Thank you everyone for sharing your GTD tools of choice!

    These other tools look really cool! I’m going to check them all out today.

    At the end of the day, I will update this post with all the additional tools that people mention here in the comments.

    Thank you and please continue to add!

    PS: I’ve used Remember the Milk so it’s ironic I forgot it. Sorry about that. It’s a good one and I will add it to the update.

    How about Remember the Milk? It offers great list management, smart lists, RSS, and Google Calendar/iCal integration. Plus you can email or IM new tasks.

    In my book it should be a contender for winning.

    I’ve tried many gtd applications and I always come back to my faithful Excel spreadsheet that I keep tweaking to my heart’s content.
    In my file, I have these separate sheets (with bottom, colored tags): stuff-in, immediate actions asap, recurring tasks, calendar, tickler /someday maybe, delegate & wait for, reference, goals.
    For each sheet, I have the columns I deem useful:
    -immediate actions: date, priority, action, detail, context, duration ,effort
    - recurring tasks: recurrence, days to, next date, last date, priority, action, detail ,context, duration , effort.
    “I” choose my fonts, colors, date formats, sorts, macros …
    Whenever I want, I print any sheet condensed on a single sheet of paper.
    Hard to beat!!!

    Great list — but calling some of the software you list “complete GTD systems” seems a stretch. They have the potential to be a system.
    Now, if you want something which integrates with Outlook, allows you to create Contexts and organize those into Projects, uses Next Actions, Resources, and Review items, and has an active and growing user community, try Jello.Dashboard.
    That is a complete GTD system.

    I’m using MonkeyGTD because is a really nice application that permit organize my ‘next action’ paradigm very easy and it’s an online and offline application. This is great because always I can access to my information.

    To mantain lists, like: wish list, films to watch, books to read, list of the purchase,etc. I use Gubb.

    Hi, AgentSully!

    I’m a big fan of GTD and your list is great. There’s so much stuff out there. I wanted to add (yet another todo list) to the list for your consideration. It’s a project I’ve been working on. I want to harden it a bit and release the code to Open Source eventually if folks like it.
    Best regards,

  36. 41
    June 15th, 2007 at 7:06 am

    For those Blackberry users out there, I have been thrilled with:

    ToDoMatrix – for all projects and next actions

    IdeaMatrix – for all note taking

    Both gave Google-like text searching to put your hands on any information quickly. There is automatic backup to a web server, so in case you lose your PDA, you don’t lose your valuable data. I can’t recommend it more highly.

    What differs from other GTD apps is the grouping feature (like Tudumo but more powerful) and the filtering options.

    Smart To-Do List ( is a Microsoft Windows based application designed to easily capture all of your to-do items.

    There are a couple of things that make this software unique from other to-do list applications. One is that it has keyboard command based options, i.e. anything that can be done with a mouse, can be done with the keyboard alone. Another thing that differentiates it from other to-do applications is the ability to save a list as a template to be re-used later. Of course you can also filter, prioritize, and tag to-do items as necessary.

    The main thing I was trying to achieve with this application was simplicity. For example, to add a task, you only need to type the task and press enter (you can optionally tag it).

    Hi, an impressive list indeed.
    Personally I use Natara Bonsai wich runs on Palm and windows. A windows mobile version will be available in some time I’ve read.

    Bonsai is an outliner, so you have some freedom to implement GTD the way you like best.
    I did it this way: at the top level i have: work projects, personal projects, second job projects and ‘checklists’. Under these items I have my projects (except for checklists). An Item in bonsai can be either ‘simple’ (that i use for reference materials), ‘to do’ which i use for ‘actions’ because it has a checkbox in the interface and ‘tasks’ wich is the type I use for projects because it has a progress bar. Further on you can have up to 15 categories (typical of Palm) those I use for contexts.
    My next actions is always the first item under a project. Natara Bonsai has several filtering capabilities (including showing only the first action), those I use for pulling together my lists for any given context. Also due dates, and estimated time (custom field) and Contact can be entered as attributes of an outline item. I fill contact for every item that has ‘waiting for’ as a category.

    Hi agentsully – if your in-basket is not full, you may like to look at TaskMerlin :-) See also for a guide to applying GTD within TaskMerlin.

    First: Thank you for this awesome list of cool GTD apps.

    Anyone knows a GTD app that tracks your task’s status history over time? Ex: Day 1: Not Started; Day 2: In Progress; Day 3: Completed

    Probably the simplest.

    (Optimistically!!) looking for a solution that works on Windows (ideally with Outlook 2007), Mac, online web version and app for the iPhone…of course it must be GTD compliant, with the capability to nest projects/tasks, and keep all the data sources in sync!!

    While surfing off this web site, I discovered Easy Task Manager…looks like it covers much of what I need – perhaps not the complete Outlook integration though.

    Anyone else use this…I can’t see it in the list above yet? Any other thoughts? Is it completely GTD compliant?

    Needian ( is the only app for windows mobile that has been developed for being used just with your fingers (Iphone style) and that implements GTD phases directly. It has three main tabs:

    1. Collect: allows processing email converting it into tasks and appoinments;

    2. Review: allows visualize actions by projects, persons, tools or places selecting which of them must be done today;

    3. Work: shows a list of today tasks (selected in step 2), last calls linked with the actions related to the caller, or actions related to a place that you visit.
