Description:

The practical, innovative, and elegant GTD® task management tool
* Efficiently manage your delegated tasks ("Waiting For" list)
* Speed up your weekly GTD® review by organizing via drag & drop
* Clearly schedule your tasks with the integrated calendar view

Firetask combines the advantages of David Allen's Getting Things Done (GTD®) with proven classical task management features such as due dates and priorities in a unique way. Unlike other task management apps, Firetask is strictly project-oriented and highly efficient. Firetask syncs wirelessly with Firetask for iPhone and Firetask for iPad.

Use the "Today" view for fast access to tasks due today or in the next days as well as to your next actionable task per project. Group tasks by "Categories" or "Projects" including a special "Waiting for" category for tracking tasks you have delegated. Use the "In-Tray" to quickly enter thoughts and ideas so that no single good idea gets ever lost again. Easily manage short-term tasks on a "Scratchboard". Finally, use the "Organize" and "Calendar" views to support your weekly GTD® review process and keep track of your personal task and project archives including GTD®-style "Someday" and "Trash" lists.

Version 2.0.1
Review by Tom Harrison

I LOVE IT - It has always been hard for me to stick to a certain GTD piece of software. I used OmniFocus for a year or more, Remember the Milk for a few years, but have found processes that I can't quite fit into those two applications. In short - I find it hard to fit my system in with their model. So I usually combine RtM with a good note-taking system for other aspects of my GTD process. But I am in love with this application - it took a number of great paradigms from iOS-based UX and made them work (better in a few cases than Apple has been able to do with Lion -- I LOVE the Category-etc lists). The UX is incredible - and that's a huge part of a to-do/gtd application. I am still testing it and am simply elated and wanted to write this short 'in progress' review of the application, but I look forward to continuing to try it in my workflow. This is a really solid application from what I can tell, though.

Version 1.2
Review by Jerry Myer

very poor support and very little help - buggy sync - I paid for the Mac version, the iphone version and the ipad version, hoping to be able to sync and take my tasks on the go like most other programs. Synced once to my ipad, iphone would not work, and now the ipad won't sync. Does not say why, and there is absolutely no help on line, or built into the program. you have to be on your wireless network to sync, and I was, but it did not work. I have two other programs that work just fine over the interenet wihtout having to be on the same network to sync. I feel like I completely wasted my money, and it was not cheep. Until they get their act together with some support and help on line, and they allow syncing over the cloud, it's a waste of time and money. It's too bad, because I like the interface and the look and ease of the program, but if it can't sync to your mobile device, what's the point?

Version 3.8.4
Review by myriv

In desparate need of an update - This is a nice and elegant organizer/project manager/to do app. Simple and easy to use, and has all the features I need. However, it constatntly freezes, and have an annoying lag time. I am using it on a reasonably new iMac with 32MB RAM, and the latest MacOS. I am hoping a new version is in the works, and an update is coming really soon!!

Version 3.8.4
Review by DougW-G

Elegantly and Intuitively Designed - I’ve used a number of these tools over the years and struggled to find one that hits the sweet spot in terms of user experience and functionality. Firetask is elegantly designed and provides the right level of functionality without the distractions of being overly complex. There are a few additional features I’d like to see in the future but all in all this a fantastic tool… Kudos to Gerald and his team!
