“Thinking Rock” GTD app review

I’m looking for a decent GTD iPhone app, so took the risk and paid upfront for Thinking Rock so I could try it out.

The iPhone app is really bare-bones and a “client” of the desktop app, in comparison to other GTD apps like LifeBalance and Omnifocus which you can use standalone. All you can do is enter new “thoughts”, and view your prioritised tasks – but one does not lead to the other! The actual processing, prioritisation, editing and moving projects and tasks, etc can only be done on the desktop app, which you need to sync to before and after.

As such, it’s very disappointing. If you’re already a Thinking Rock desktop user, this might fulfill a need to have SOMETHING on your iPhone, but it can’t be used at all by itself, and is really just a digital version of a notepad and printout from the desktop app.

    For implementing GTD you can use this web-based application:


    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, schedules and a calendar.
    Comes with a mobile version too, and with an Android app.
