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. Zoot is a powerful, highly flexible program that provides 2-3 hours of tutorials to learn its full functionality. Categories may be Multiple, Non-nested (implimented through categories), OR Multiple, nested (implemented through smart folder hierarchy).
