GTDReviews.com is alive and well. Sure, there may have been about three years in between this post and the last, but let me assure you, my resolve for helping people thrive at Getting Things Done has never been greater.
So what’s next? First up, we’re going to do a few articles to catch people up on the state of GTD software. There have been some major revisions to all of the ‘big dogs’ of GTD apps, and now over the air syncing with mobile apps is becoming a standard. This site definitely has a software focus, so we’re going to get on top of the reviews first.
This will also be a story about my ongoing adventure in falling off the GTD wagon, and getting back on it. During our three year absence, much of that time was spent using my brain instead of organized lists and ubiquitous inboxes, and that was a huge mistake. I’ve been back on the train now for a few months, and I’ve probably been more productive and focused in those last few months than in the preceding two years.
But let me ask you all a question – what is the greatest value I can provide, as a fellow GTDer and human being? I have a passion for the topic, even more now that I’ve been without it for a period of time in my life. What is missing, beyond reviews of software, that I can pour my heart and soul into?
I would love to hear from you!
Information overload is a common problem in this high-tech, high-touch world. In fact, the GTD methodology addresses that very issue quite effectively, allowing us to free up our minds to think creatively and learn new things while making sure important things don’t fall through the cracks. When you visit a blog about GTD tools and implementation, the last thing you want is more information overload, correct?
That’s why we’ve decided to modify our approach here at GTD Reviews. Rather than committing to one post a day, and loading viewers up with an excess of information, we’re going to post only twice every week outside of app update reports. In making this adjustment, we will have more time to make sure the information we provide is supremely relevant to helping you achieve “mind like water” as quickly as possible.
There is only one catch. With fewer posts, it’s even more vital that we hear from you. We need to know what information you’d like to find on this site. Ask, and you shall receive. It’s tough to beat that.
Reviewing a specific category of software is not as easy as it sounds. This is especially true when it comes to software that supports implementation of a methodology as flexible as GTD. What qualifies as a “GTD” application? What applications are worth reviewing?
While this topic of discussion is ongoing here at GTD Reviews, we have made a few decisions that we would like to discuss here.
One very important element of any application is how engaged the developer of that application is with the ongoing development of the application, and in the community. As such, one decision we’ve made is that any application that has not been updated in 2 years will not be indexed on this site. Those apps will be considered “stale,” and while any reviews we have done in the past for them will be accessible in the archives, they will not be an active part of our new dynamic grids.
Secondly, with the new version of GTD Reviews that will be released in the coming weeks, we will be including all of the most commonly used platforms for list managers. This includes platforms such as the iPad, Blackberry, Palm (or HP?), Paper/Analog, iPhone, Windows Phone, Linux, etc. Again, this will allow GTD Reviews to be the most comprehensive source of information and guidance for new GTDers and veteran GTDers alike, in finding the right implementation to fit their lifestyle.
While we press on in the development of the official GTD Reviews redesign, we are consistently receiving feedback on what viewers want to see, and what would make this site useful for you. It doesn’t matter if you have a suggestion resulting in a minor tweak, or a major overhaul – we want to hear it !

Ladies and Gents, this site and its potential usefulness have inspired such a positive response from the GTD community, that we’ve decided to invest time and money into a major site overhaul. As you may have noticed, our updates haven’t been as regular or as comprehensive as we would like, but now you know why.
If you’ve had the opportunity to check out our App Comparisons, you have seen how useful the information is. That said, it would be much nicer if you had the ability to manipulate the data and organize it to apply specifically to you as an individual. Well, stand by shortly while we make your dreams into a reality.
If you have any specific suggestions on how we can make this site most valuable to you as the end user, please let us know in the comments below!
