GTDNext – GTD Software Version 1 – Coming Soon!
Wow, it’s been a busy few weeks working hard on GTDNext the GTD Software we hope you will all be using soon! Since Beta 2 launched on May 18th we have had 10 more builds of the product and have continued to add tons and tons of functionality to GTDNext.
We are working hard to stabilize the product, fix remaining bugs and do some slight enhancements. Soon we will announce the release of version 1. Version 1 will be open to the public and no longer require approval to join the beta. We view version 1 as a starting point, not a finish line. The product has all the main features completed so it’s time to open it up to more people and get feedback. The first version will be free. As we get feedback in we will determine the best model for free versus paid.
For those of you that have already joined the beta, thank you! We appreciate your help so far with the beta and would appreciate some more help in preparing for Version 1. Any time you can spend checking for errors would be appreciated. If you haven’t had an opportunity to join there is still time. You can register for access to the beta here.
