iGTD: Strong OS X app with powerful Quicksilver integration
Merlin Mann | Apr 8 2007
It feels like a solid, powerful, and practical tool for managing action, and I'm pleased to say it's steered clear of a lot of the GTD-ish visual theatricality that, in my opinion, has made some of the apps out there more pretty and fun to use than they are useful in the context of a mature, streamlined system.
I mention iGTD here because, in playing with it yesterday, I turned up this excellent page about iGTD's Quicksilver integration.
Pretty mind-blowing (albeit geeky) stuff, since the detailed syntax allows you to enter tasks via QS from anyplace, while still identifying project name, context, priority, date due -- and even allowing you to add a note.
(BTW, that image will make more sense after you read the whole page)
I encourage you to have a look at iGTD if you get a chance and take it for a spin. It's evolving very quickly, with new updates available seemingly every time I open the app.
Like any GTD tool, it won't be perfect for everyone, but in my own testing over a couple days, I've found it to be one of the clear leaders in what's quickly becoming a very crowded field.
