There's kind of a nice human story here. Check out: "Welcome Bartek! Welcome iGTD Users"

http://culturedcode.com/things/blog/2009/08/welcome-bartek-welcome-igtd-users.html

Not to mention:

"[Bartek] also requested that we give free Things licenses to everyone who donated to iGTD, and we were very happy to oblige! Everyone who donated will receive an email with one or more free Things licenses, making sure that the value of licenses will exceed the amount of money donated."

Although I'm a happy registered user of OmniFocus, I have to say that the new Things 1.2, which already reflects some of Bartek's magic, is very tempting. With someone as talented and innovative as Bartek joining Cultured Codes fine programmers, the future of Things looks bright. I'm going to keep an eye on it in the future.

It looks like this excellent program is dead. No updates in over a year.
Too bad. It's much better and cheaper than any other GTD program for the mac. I won't pay 50.00 for things and 80.00 for omnifocus?, give me a break. I got 10.5 for less than that.

There's an alpha version available here:

But even it is a year old.

I use version 1.4.5.6 of iGTD. I've use this program for at least a year and love it. To those that were having problems, go try again. I just check at the developers Web site is up and running fine.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!

Using the suggested F6/F7/F8 keys, or any other hot key, will disable ALL HOT KEY combinations for EVERY app on your computer. Only a full restart will restore those functions.

Yay!

This version (1.4.5.6) does not work. Cannot add anything to contexts, tasks or projects. No step-by-step instructions to get started. Buttons don't work. Very poor release.

I just tried out the version 2 alpha, and I must say that I am really disappointed. I heard a ton of hype about this app to see that it's not very easy to use and has a clumsy, non-OS X like interface.

I'd take Mail's Notes and To Dos over this any day.

The interface may seem a little busy at first, but it grows on you after playing around with it a bit.

Once you understand how it is designed to work -- you see how indeed very smart it is.

With version 2 you get a built in outliner/project manager and note/link manager. It's the most comprehensive and most ambitious application out there in the genre, and it's free, which is something amazing in and of itself.
With the built in contact linking system,
It can also be used as a light weight CRM too.
It seems quite usable in the latest alpha.
I am looking forward to its continued evolvement. Also note it's going to have a new name which is on the horizon, according to requests on the forum for user feedback.

Uff, I finally found the time to try this out. I entered about 30 tasks in different projects and different contexts. I hit 'Sync' and everything disappeared! All tasks were gone. And they didn't show up in iCal. What is going on? Is anybody else experiencing this sort of problems?!

Thanks, that helped. But there is a little itchy feeling, it might happen again sometimes. - Time for a backup plan ;-)

Otherwise this is a very promising app developing at an incredible speed. Thanks to the developer for his time and ethusiasm!

Bartek Bargiel (developer) replied on 10 Apr 2007
You're absolutely right. That's why I've just implemented automated backups of iGTD files. Before syncing and at startup. This way you can always revert to your old data file, repair syncing and try again without losing your tasks.

It will be avaialble in next release.

iGTD looks very nice, congratulations to the author.

There are some bugs though that let me go argh.

In projects view, you cannot change the priority of a task by clicking on the numbers.

When searching in the included address book view results in one contact only, clicking on the contact will not transfer that name to the task. You have to delete the search term or make it wider so that it matches more than one contact, then you can click on the name again to transfer it to the task.

The app beeps on my for every letter I type into the tags or contacts field. Is this a hint of a forthcoming completion for these fields

Addition:

When you create a new task and tab into the "Due" field, selecting a date in the date picker will not show the selected date until you unfocus the "Due" field.

Question: What are tags for? Will there be a way to filter by tag or something?

Sorting of tasks: When I have a task with no due date (e.g. a "maybe" one) it will be sorted in the "To complete" list above tasks with due dates when sorting by due date.

In "To complete" view, sorted by due date.
Select a task with a due date. The due date will be marked gray in the date picker. Double click the due date of the task and delete it. The old date is still gray in the picker. Clicking the old, gray due date in the date picker will not select the date.

Same setup, double click the due date, press delete, select a date from the picker, click on another task to finish -> new due date will not be picked up.

Big wishlist: Mark an task as recurring every $SOMETHING (as in iCal), so that marking it complete it will just change its due date to the new date.

Hope this helps in making iGTD even more polished.

hi there,

wow, thanks for these reports. some comments:

1. selecting from AB after filtering to ONE record - true! it doesn't work because iGTD waits for changes of selection - and there can be no selection change if there's only one record shown... will try to fix that.

in 1.3.1 I've just added the autocompletion in contacts field, it may be helpful until I remove the bug

2. Changing priority in projects tab - fixed! get 1.3.1 release

3. "The app beeps on my for every letter I type into the tags or contacts field. " - puh, got no idea what it can be... gotta think about it.

4. Calendar problems - known bugs. Trying to fix it!

5. Recurring tasks - of course, they will be in the next release - till next Saturday!

Bartek Bargiel (developer) replied on 01 Apr 2007
forgot two issues:

1. sorting with due dates - I know about the problem, I don't like this behaviour too and am currently trying to investigate the problem.

2. tags - current concept is only for tagging and searching by tags.

There will be next concept using tags but it will be implemented in next 2-3 weeks. Hope it's gonna be a small revolution... :-)

You can currently search by tags by just clicking the drop down menu in search field and selecting 'Find by tag'. If you can't find it, go to

http://bargiel.home.pl/iGTD/

and scroll down to the bottom of the page - there's a screenshot available.

surfsurf replied on 01 Apr 2007
Wow, you are the best! :-)

I have another wishlist item you might consider: Making syncing of "maybe" task with iCal optional to reduce clutter. That way, I can see what is up next in e.g. a ToDo widget without the "consider sometime" items.

surfsurf replied on 01 Apr 2007
Oh, and on the beeping in the tags and contacts fields: you do have that as well, or is this something only on my box?

Bartek Bargiel (developer) replied on 01 Apr 2007
:-)

1. beeping - no beeping on my mac... :-( that's why it looks difficult to fix :)

2. optional syncing - of course, there will be more syncing options (planned for next major release):

- sync all tasks / pending only / flagged only

I guess syncing of flagged tasks will be quite useful. This way i.e. you get the most important tasks synced to your phone :-)

surfsurf replied on 01 Apr 2007
Great :-)

As for the beeping: I'll check if it is a InputManager interfering.

A new bug: In the Process/review windows, I cannot delete the task. Backspace or delete do nothing.

A suggestion: Instead of using , just use
burypromote
Bartek Bargiel (developer) replied on 01 Apr 2007
well, I guess you're right. BUT have a look on the Pending tab. You can use to project. So that's why I added support to in Contexts tab.

beeping: I'll be glad for your help :-)

delete/backspace: you're right! will be fixed in next fix release! thanks!

surfsurf replied on 01 Apr 2007
I see, good reason for both . I would be happy if I could map the ">" function to another key, as using shift+< is rather uncomfortable. If you could add both functions to the menu, I could do that via the system preference.

Phaleron had trouble on 31 Mar 2007
I think iGTD is shaping up quite, and the developer seems to be diligent and hard-working. I have had a couple of complains for a while but have waited, hoping to see them fixed in the interim. They are:

1. The application "calls home" upon startup without warning, or a preference setting to turn it off.

2. I have never been able to use the "link" field, whether to insert a URL, or a local file path. The field is just not clickable.

hi there, thanks for comment.

1. Checking for new version - ok, it will be controlled by prefs setting in next release.

2. Link field - yeah, I know, I have to:

- add some more interaction to it - currently only dragging a new link (Safari link/file) on the existing task adds a link to this task; I will implement pasting the URLs directly into the link field - and also allow pasting copied tasks into the field

- allow to drag links onto the link field directly - not only on the tasks

.
To the developer:

This is not highly important, but the application icon appears to be a little jagged around the edges. On your website, there's a .png version of the icon, that is a lot smoother. You can easily convert .png's to .icns icons with for instance, Iconverter (available on MacUpdate).

Thanks!

If you were referring to the icon displayed on the MacUpdate product page for iGTD, you're right, it was a little jagged. I just now went to the dev's site, dragged 'n dropped the icon on that page to my desktop and upped it to the iGTD product page here. Looks a bit better now, you may need to force-reload the MacUpdate iGTD page (hold down the shift key while clicking on your browser's reload button, may need to do this twice) to see the new icon.
