Kaidoh is fully correct.

I will not try to exceed his eloquent clarity.

This is quite primitive and featureless without an attractive GUI, at an absurd price !

Is this some kind of joke?
- No iCal integration
- No palm, mobile phone or whatever synchronisation
- Export only to XML
- No drag 'n' drop support
- No system wide service or any other way to add tasks
- No spotlight integration
- No GUI that deserves the name
- Not even proper shortcuts
- No Applescript support
- Not one reason to pay almost 50 (in words FIFTY!!!) bucks for this!

This is a ridicilous try to make money out of poor GTG addicts. Beware! Try something else: kGTD, Midnight, iGTD, Thinking Rock, TiddlyWiki, Backpack or anything else. Even pen and paper will fit your GTD needs better than Vortex.

You're right that it doesn't integrate with Mac services as native Mac apps do. That's because it runs on both Macs and Windows, something native Mac apps don't.

The GUI is pared down to the bare essentials by design. Again, it's cross-platform and so doesn't look the same as native apps.

The primary benefit of this app is that it adheres to GTD more faithfully than the others you mention in terms of the attributes of actions, projects, etc. It also supports action dependencies which the others don't.

The cost reflects both the development cost and the quality of support that customers receive. Our customers are all very happy with it.
