    Very difficult with the current available apps. The included tasks app is weak at best. I guess you can use a web site based task application like Remember the Milk. I am hoping we see Pocket Informant for the Pre eventually.

    I'm hoping and praying for Pimlico DateBk or (the newer desktop-based) Pimlical. IMHO, hands down the best PIM app anywhere on any platform in terms of features and customization.

    Wasn't aware of Pocket Informant. Thanks for the info. I am thinking of how to incorporate GTD with the Pre.

    heberman has what sounds like a pretty decent setup. I'm not sure if he uses GTD to the letter but I think one could do that using this system. You can search sites like LifeHacker for help with setting up the GTD system using RTM Gmail and Google Calendar.

    I'm not a huge fan of using the cloud for task management so I'm waiting...

    Last I read, he didn't sound very up on the idea, or webOS in general.

    Currently using the tasks app to GTD. Created 4 categories atm.

    • Next Actions
    • Waiting for
    • someday
    • wishlist


    Ignore the priority, yet the due date is very helpful as you get a notification on the pre when it expires.

    I'm using Google Tasks (via my Gmail) to keep track of my tasks. I use the iPhone version via the Pre, and the full version on my computers. Since I work on several computers, it's essential that my tasks are in the cloud. Google Tasks are very nicely done, except that on the iPhone version I can't re-order tasks (can do that via computer).

    Oops, the Android version works better than the iPhone version.

    for the regular gmail version:
    mail.google.com/tasks/wk

    for the gmail for your domain version:
    mail.google.com/tasks/a/YOURDOMAIN.COM/android

    I had been using Agendus for GTD for the last cpl of years. It was working perfect for me. At first I was very sad about the PIM on the Pre, but after working with it a cpl of weeks it seems to be working just fine. Back to the simple basics of GTD. My GTD setup is very simple;

    Since the Pre lets you have unlimited catagorys (list) this solves a major short comming of the Palm. Here are my list;
    inbox
    internet
    calls
    office
    errands
    waiting for
    someday
    maybe

    i can make a new list for each project PJW review weekly, PJM review monthly
    ect like PJW landscaping.

    Incoming items go in the inbox awaiting processing.
    All task with do date just go into the calendar

    Agenda items (things to talk to with people) I just add them to the contact it has a reminder feature. So when i am with them i just pull up the contact name and i see what is pending to talk about. If when i talk to them via phone the reminder is sent as a notification.

    I will admit this is not the complex system ine had with Agendus, but i do not miss the hours of tweeking i use to do.

    Pros
    simple
    portable
    fast
    easy to use

    cons
    cannot link task to contact
    no icons in calendar
    no linking contacts to each other
    no local desktop (will try google task soon).

    So there it is this is no date book or agendus, but maybe simple is better!

    MTW
    +edit You can also go to all task and search by keyword I.E. calls will return all pending calls no matter where they are nested.

    The Pocket Informant developer has the Pre SDK and has indicated a future version is in the works. Here is a picture from the iPhone version.....

    I'm currently trying to figure out GTD on the pre.

    One thing that would be nice is a Toodledo app for the Pre. The web version isn't bad though.

    Evernote, despite its flaws, is still the best way to keep notes.

    This definitely looks promising. I hope that SDK is easy to work with and port from iPhone since s/he's still on v1 of the iphone app. I'll try the task categories thing for now. Didn't know there were categories in the task app.

    Thanks for all the input. RTM does look interesting, as does Pocket Informant (BTW, was this originally a Windows Mobile app along the lines of DateBk/Agendus?). However, I don't like the thought of being totally dependent on the cloud to access the data stored in these apps (e.g., on an airplane or at the gym--I sometimes do work there while I let my kids play in the indoor playland and the signal is often either dead or it goes into roaming).

    Regarding the Pre's Tasks app...am I correct that it's really a list of lists? And if so, would I be correct to guess that those of you using it are also using it for non-NA lists (e.g., Things to do when in D.C., Family Activity Ideas, Packing List, etc., etc.)?

    I have downloaded the Evernote Pre app and have been trying it out the last week or so and I do like what I see. For me, this would basically be a replacement for DayNotez on my old PalmOS devices, which I relied heavily upon. Still, I am not crazy about being totally cloud-dependent to access my notes.

    Will you help me try to convince him otherwise?

    Any update on a good GTD app for the Pre?

    I'm not sure if you all are aware of the preware app called cowtasks. Which is in essence RTM taks app.

    I use an open source web application called tracks (Tracks :: index). It is a web application that has a mobile format for mobile phones that renders very well on the Pre.

    I host the application on my own website, but there are companies that will host it for you. You can view and try it out at:


    tracks.tra.in: Login (try this from your Pre)
    use username: gwbush, any password

    With PocketMirror Tasks I'm finally happily organizing my tasks. It works quick on the Pre (unlike the built in task manager) and syncs with Outlook.

    Thanks for this. As I was using the Chrome-dedicated "Application" from Windows yesterday, I was wondering if there might be a shortcut for the Pre that would give me close to the same thing.

    I'm hoping Google releases an API for Google Tasks soon.
