Podophile on Actiontastic for GTD with your iPod

Getting Things Done With Your iPod

My head swims with the number of Mac GTD apps that have sprung up over the last year or so, one of which is the Quicksilver-friendly Actiontastic. Although I haven't spent more than a few minutes playing with Actiontastic, as described by Podophile it appears to merit a look for Hipster PDA-centric iPod fans:

Syncing to my iPod is obviously another big feature for me. At the click of a button, all of your Projects and Context Lists are sent to your Notes folder, making it easy to review them anywhere you happen to be. Obviously, you can’t add or edit items directly with your iPod, but that’s why I always carry my Hipster POD with me. It’s easy enough to input any new items when I get back to my computer.

Funny thing. My newish Treo died two weeks ago, and I've been too busy to get it fixed. Yet, pretty much as I'd predicted to myself when I bought it late last summer, I'm not really missing it. I still was using index cards for on-the-go capture, and, thus far, since the Treo's demise, I find myself no poorer for not being able to check email on MUNI. Yeah, I definitely will get it fixed (Man, I love having Google Maps with me everywhere), but it is interesting how fundamentally a Hipster POD-esque approach must have been encoded on my brain.

Slickest app I Have seen...

Slickest app I Have seen in some time. When the developer adds the ability to import existing Tasks from iCal, I'll likely make Actiontastic my primary GTD tool. He has added the importing ability to his "brainstorming" todo list, so I fully expect he'll have that ability in pretty short order. I'm new to Mac, but this and QuickSilver will no doubt turn me into a die-hard Mac promoter.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
