Short details Android application with a comprehensive coverage of Exchange features such as categorization of events, tasks and contacts, as well as setting and clearing Out Of Office messages. 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.
