Trying out a new to-do list software

I have now officially moved from taskfreak to gtd-php. Taskfreak is prettier, it is faster (in part due to its use of AJAX), and supports multiusers.

However, gtd-php is far more GTD compliant. For one thing, with taskfreak, I continually felt overwhelmed since all of your tasks are visible all the time. gtd-php is much better at showing you just what you need, when you need it.

Now, if only it was faster!

  1. Thanks for the post !

    I installed and used TaskFreak all the day and got my best day since a while… But it was frustrating to not be able to conetxtualize the tasks and the report a little bit more. GTD-PHP do that perfectly…

    Moreover, even if it’s not documented on their website, it’s pretty easy to installed on Windows IIS + MySQL. It took me 2-3 minutes…

    Thanks again !
