Short details Free-form outlines organized by virtual file folders. This application does allow you to create GTD-style task lists using the folders, but power users will feel the lack of sorting and filtering options. Easy-to-use interface allows filtering by groups, project, date ranges, as well as switching between daily, weekly and monthly views. Creation or editing of projects, tasks, and messages can be made with a single email. Now with free apps for iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, BlackBerry Bold, and WebOS.
