Short details EffecientPIM does tasks, calendar, contacts, and notes.

EfficientPIM supports a vanilla GTD system, though people using more automated time management systems (such as TRO) may feel hampered by limited features--such no saved task views.
Nirvana has evolved into an excellent personal GTD and GTD solution, worth looking at.

Particularly nice is its ability to pause or schedule projects (and all tasks within them) and designate project steps as sequential or simultaneous. You can also star tasks to create an instant "must do today" list as taught in TRO Online training.
