Had the same problem. Several solutions: Task Changer TITANIUM, adds a Alt+Tab functionality as overlay screen button, so you can switch between 2 apps with one screen swipe like hitting a keyboard shortcut. Dock4Droid, touching screen on the margin yield pop up bar with recent and favorite apps SwipePad, similar to Dock4Droid All these apps make it ...

Have a look at http://www.todotxt.com/ This set of tools starts from a simple txt file, the most versatile, industry-standard, non-proprietary file format that will never suffer from versioning problems or can become corrupted by program errors, and that can be stored and opened on any system imaginable. TodoTXT is a free and open-source set of tools for ...

I am using Opera mini (which for me is the best browser for my Android) and after I select the text I want to save as a note I just click share and choose from a menu with all available applications to save my notes (in my case Evernote - great app to stay organized). I hope this helps.

I am happy with Remember The Milk. The Android and iPhone apps work offline and sync nicely when you're back in wifi range. The web interface works well for me on netbook, laptop, and desktop machines. And I use RTM as my primary list manager for GTD. I might also be happy with using Evernote if I were to change my workflow a bit. Evernote doesn't ...

Whatever you've tried, you've found a way to defeat it. Tools will only get you so far. You need to train yourself to not wander. I struggle with the same thing, but for different reasons. One thing that has worked is I ask myself before I click on a link: "Why am I going there?" If you have a productive, defined purpose for going there, then go there. ...

Right now I'm using the BETA version of MyLifeOrganized. I don't particularly care for the app on the PC, but the Android version is fairly smooth. It doesn't support the kind of customized lists I'm used to with Remember the Milk, but it does the things I'm looking for above - unlimited sub-tasks, and it provides an "Active Tasks" view which, as far as ...

You should look for a list app that would allow you to create multiple lists so you can have each column in a different list, and to overcome the small screen size it should allow you to jump in term of pages. Where if task 1 - 8 are displayed, you can jump to task 9-10. Even better would be software that shows these lists above each other so you don't have ...

I'm using Nozbe with the Iphone client and I really like it even if it's not free, there is also an Android client .

You should definitely try Wunderlist. The reason - it's free, works on many platforms, has cool interface, and it isn't overwhelmed with features. It actually helps to focus on doing things, not arranging tasks, tags, managing views, etc. I've been using RTM for years, and it always turned into playing with tags/contexts/smart searches, instead of actually ...

I'm using ToDoList. It also supports third-party plugins. Maybe at first it seems intimidating and complex but for me it is the best tool I ever used. Thought TodoList is not a software specially made for GTD it can be used as one, for more information you could read "Getting Things Done with TodoList" blog entry.

I recently started using MyLifeOrganized. It has an Android app which currently still is in beta and can be downloaded for free. The final version will probably be a paid version. I als tried RTM, but had difficulties configuring it to fit my GTD system. I haven't tried ToodleDo yet.

I've been using Workflowy for a while now. The mobile version works just as well as the desktop.

You could try Shuffle. It's a GTD-based outliner for Android. Shuffle, a personal organizational tool, styled around the Getting Things Done methodology. Shuffle is a dumping ground for ideas and tasks. It lets you rapidly create and organize your actions, relieving you of the stress of trying to remember everything you need to get done. Since Shuffle ...

A search could be useful for those who mark tasks when done but don't delete them, especially if handy information was recorded in the task. The 'done' list would be large. For example, searching for when car insurance had been paid in the past and confirming your suspicion that the amount paid last time really was a lot lower than what they're asking this ...

Toodledo also has search. I use it for: I created a to do item for sometime in the future and was so motivated to do it now before it got to the front of my list. (This happens for "one day" type items.) I want to see if I added the item to my to do list. (again for "one day" type items I completed an item and want to see when I did it last/how long it ...

Doit.im is the only solution that I could find that really follows GTD. You have projects, context, next, someday, and they are implementing reviews. It fully syncs with mobile, web and desktop applications. But real time sync is not free.

I have been running tests with Shuffle, Tracks (which I like but no Nesting) My Life Organized (which is ok, but "slow and heavy) and Outliner (Android Market)... which works with Bonsai and Dropbox. Right now Outliner is my fav on the Android. I really want to combine all of them Web Windows Droid Synch Nesting Speed. Try Outliner. I think you will ...

I know that tablets are a huge deal but I think that they are a intermediary device between mobile smart phones and the future. I am thinking something like the Galaxy Note is more on tune with is better to use. The tablet is too big to carry around and just whip out, but like you are experiencing, it is not easy to produce work on. If you are able, you may ...

In terms of richness of features, availability of Android app, and availability of Sync, nothing I've seen is better than MyLifeOrganized. It's got tons to offer in terms of organizing tasks, setting up reminders, doing backup, etc. The Android app has a nice interface and all the features you could need while you're on the go. The downside: The ...

Remember the Milk is the best GTD app I used on Android. Although you need pay some but it worth. Now I transferred to iOS, then Omnifocus must be the best app. What a pity it does not have Android version.


2

Give NirvanaHQ a shot if you're willing to rely on your browser on Android. It does a nice job of implementing a lot of GTD principles. Don't miss out on their "version 2" that's still in beta but seems pretty solid.

The most powerful option is Emacs with org-mode. I would call org-mode basically your own productivity application starter kit, thus many have used it to create their own GTD based work-flows. Emacs itself has a really big learning curve but I think it's worth it. Once you understand the basics of Emacs org-mode is really easy to get started with. You can ...

Nirvana is looking for Android testers and it's likely they'll have a finished app out soon. For a while there I used doit.im and have found Nirvana easier to use and a better fit for the way I do GTD.

You might mod me down for being off-topic, but after having used the ToDo app on my Palm Tungsten for pretty much what you want for the last 6 years, I came to think that this is not the best idea. For project planning you most likely want more power and more options than just a hierarchical to do list. You might want to keep a mind map of your project or ...

I recommend MyLifeOrganized. It has cloud syncing, clients for Android as well as iPhone/iPad and Windows mobile. Do not know about SSL for sure, but think it is also present under the hood.

Hiveminder has the feature you are looking for. However, it lacks something which I believe you will be looking for as well... I was evaluating MyLife Organized looking for a feature which I havent found in the competitors (such as hiveminder): Is there a way to filter so that the the ToDo-list shows only all tasks which directly or indirectly must be ...

Contrary to Dennis's claim, I think that StickK and Beeminder can motivate you. Neither are Android apps, but Beeminder has an email and SMS interface for reporting your completion of tasks.

I have migrated my GTD system from one implementation to another multiple times. I started with a Palm, moved to Outlook and Palm, then Outlook, then several different Wiki based implementations, then to Remember The Milk in several different shapes, then Evernote in two different ways, and finally to the mixed tool system that I'm using now. In all cases, ...

I use iRT GTasks Outliner. It does have unlimited levels of sub tasks, in collapsible branches/trees. However, no filters yet.
