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 !
