As we head into the second half of 2016, we want to provide an update on what is going on with all things GTDNext.
Over the past couple of years, our focus has been on adding basic features that most people expect in a GTD solutions. Right out of the gate GTDNext offered several features not normally seen in productivity solutions with the ability to have unlimited depth of outlines and inline editing of tasks. We then focused on adding many of the basic features one would expect in a task management app.
Over this last year, we spent a lot of time working on a native mobile solution to GTDNext. While we made some good progress on that solution, we often got pulled away to either put our fires or add small improvements that customers were asking us to add. Now, based on resources and priorities we’ve made the difficult decision to place that effort temporarily on hold. We do want to start working on it again and soon. In fact, we are actively looking to add a great mobile developer to our team to help make things go faster. If you know of such a person, please contact us to discuss possible arrangements.
In the last two years, we have worked to add tons of features to GTDNext, but we have purposefully not spent a lot of time improving the user interface (UI). Today the GTDNext look is a bit “old school”. With our current team size, we prioritized features over making the UI look super slick. However, the longer we keep the old-school looks, the more apparent, it is becoming that to take GTDNext to the next level we need to give our users a slick modern-day look and feel. We knew we need to get this done and soon. But when?
