Is A Cross-Platform GTD Task Management App

Windows/Mac/Linux: is a free, attractive, cross-platform task management application built on the principles of productivity guru David Allen's Getting Things Done. It syncs to the web, it's easy to use, and soon it'll sync to your phone too.

Once you install the app and register for an account, you can start adding items to your inbox, creating projects and scheduling your tasks. A lot of the organisational tools will be familiar to GTD followers: notice the Projects and Someday inboxes, as well as the next actions section for arranging your tasks. You can easily drag and drop tasks into any bucket across the application, and while I ran into a snag on my first run, everything seemed smooth sailing after I started it up again. is a free download for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, requires Adobe AIR. The developer claims mobile versions for the iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile and Symbian devices are underway, which would be a real boon for accessing your tasks anywhere, especially since they'd sync with your desktop. If you're looking for a new task manager and you're keen on GTD, is certainly worth a look. [via AddictiveTips]


    Is it just me or does the interface for this look like a complete rip off of Things for the Mac?

      I agree. However, I'm not surprised as Things' interface is the only thing going for it.

      I've bought Things Mac and iPhone and it's unashamedly buggy.

      Bring on free alternative.

      I agree too!

      It's almost a complete rip off of Things... I wonder if this will either bring on a lawsuit to or whether it will cause Cultured Code to bring down their price?

      I Don't know Things but if this is a rip off, i don't care. has been great for me.

    This program works really well on both my mac and android device (archos 5 internet tablet). I don't think it is a rip off of anything. I find it easier to use than things, etc.

    For me doit works wonderfully...well worth the money ;) Honestly though, if they keep getting better the way they have I would surely support them with a financial contribution...especially because I admire their "we will be free for ever" attitude.

    I absolutely love this app, and I agree that it is a shameless copy (of only the best parts) of Things. So what whiners... bite me - this is the streamlined interface that Things should have been in the first place.
    And it is cross-platform to boot! I can't believe all of those programmers with myopic vision have not thought of doing something like this before - this is truly usable, it is ubiquitous (everywhere and always available for the language challenged), and it is free.
    Screw Things and Cultured Code... someone made a better mousetrap.

    Are you kidding me? That is all you got? Why do people feel the need to bitch about the app? Its a stable app, great interface, and its FREE! Yeah it resembles "Things". I use Things, but I have abandoned it after downloading I have Things on my iPod Touch and on my Eris and I will have to say that for being a free app its even better than Things! I didn't have to pay an arm and a leg to get a decent GTD app.

    I love this app...just got it today, and have gotten a lot don!! for those of us who do not know what THINGS is...who cares. USe what you got and get it done.

    Great software.

    You may want to check out, a very nicely built web app designed for tracking goals and todo lists, and supports time tracking too. It’s clear, focused, easy to navigate, worth a try.

    This is a miserable clone of Cultured Code Things for Mac. It could be great to have a free version of Things with synchronization feature. But is not even close to this. It lacks most features of Things, it looks ugly, and try to add more than 20 tasks to your inbox - it will freeze and die. Shame on all those developers. They need to be put on the miserable wall of shameful losers.

    Alrightidoki, that makes Things clone number .. 5 .. ? There's at least 3 online clones of Things out there. And they all suck because Things sucks as a GTD app, for the very simple reason that the next action concept is implemented poorly. Yet all the clones I've seen blindly copy this poor implementation. It's really quite sad.

    Looks nice, though.

    Would someone please clone OmniFocus already? Oh right, EFFORT.
