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.
Utilizing Boards (projects) and cards (tasks), Trello solves about a dozen problems all at the same time over grid-oriented task lists, including: scanning to-do lists repeatedly, confusion about priorities of assignments, inability to see updates on what has changed in to-do lists, better team visibility and empathy on workloads, consolidating multiple lists used to compartmentalize, automatic reporting back and accountability, easy and persistent commenting around tasks that doesn't get lost, and several other needs.
