Version 1 Release Announcement

Posted 07/08/14 by James and filed under:

Today we are announcing the release of version one of GTDNext

When we set out to create GTDNext, we understood that we were entering a crowded space with many other great GTD task management applications on the market. We knew the importance of moving fast, and being competitive and innovative.

We provide users with advanced features in an easy-to-use interface.  Customers wanted fast development cycles and a team that would listen. GTDNext V1 accomplishes these goals very well.

In 3 sprints with 20 to 30 builds in each sprint over exactly a 5 month period,we are proud to announce release candidate build 1.3.26 as our version one. Version one contains all of the below features. Sign up for free here.

Getting Things Done

A summary of some of the GTDNext Version 1 features.

What is the Next Action?

While version 1 is the culmination of a lot of long days and late nights and hard work, it really just marks the start line for GTDNext, not the finish line. We are just getting started.  We have a huge number of features that we are working on and are excited to bring to our users.

We will continue to learn from and listen to our user base and add features and at a fast pace. While version one is an incredible task manager to do list system, the future of GTDNext is even brighter.

For a short time, GTDNext version 1 is free to use for an unlimited number of projects and tasks. All we ask is that you tweet about it or  post about it on facebook or Google Plus. Let the world know about our software!

Click the link below this blog post and let your friends and co-workers know about us.

Over the next few weeks, we will launch a paid version of the software.   Users who come on board at version 1 will continue to be able to utilize the full feature set of version one and create a very healthy number of new projects and actions.  We will utilize the freemium model, offering a standard version of the software with a generous number of items (projects and tasks) along with a premium version with unlimited tasks and premium features.

Thanks to all our beta testers for your feedback and input into the project.  All active beta testers will get premium for free for a period of time.  More info soon.

We would love to hear your thoughts in the forum, or down below in the comment section.

    Can you add email addresses to your account or can sending tasks to “inbox@gtdnext.com” only come from the address used to register the account?

  • Yes, you have to use the email registered to your account. We will be adding the ability to add more email aliases to your account, but that feature didn’t make the cut for this version.
