Lately I have been reading a lot about GTD Apps (Getting things done). I am always forgetting to do something or need to be reminded because my brain functions so fast it’s already onto the next thing! I read a couple great articles online that lead me to an app called Remember the Milk. Just today I read an article about a new beta app called SHIFD.
First let’s talk about Remember the Milk. The basic app is free and works really well. I can schedule tasks, reminders and I even put when my bills are due so that I am reminded on a daily basis. You can integrate it within gmail, that’s actually my favorite feature since I barely use a calendar program, it’s just easier since I am checking my email all the time. You can organize anyway your heart desires, get reminded through SMS, email and IM. I highly recommend checking out this app if your into GTD.
Next up…SHIFD. It’s currently in beta but you can sign up on their website. I’m new to this app so I will have to add more on this one later. As far as I can tell it’s a pretty simple interface, very clean looking and sorts items by Notes, Places & Links. You can also use the tag feature. This app is probably for you if you use more than one computer and a phone with web features.
If you have anything to add to this GTD list that looks promising, drop me a comment.
