This review takes a closer look at a task management service called GTDNext. The very acronymic name already tells half of the story: If familiar with GTD – which by the way stands for the Getting Things Done method – it almost explains itself.

The application is a niche app fully tailored to a single approach to task management. It does not allow much customization, but implements a single paradigm for task management very well and structured.

Is this app something for everybody, or rather a niche app for productivity fanatics?

It approaches task management rather simple: With fewer features, less distracting elements and a bit of gamification; to be an efficient companion in daily work.

We will take a look at the service to see whether it is a valid choice for your task management needs. Can it compete with other giants in task management?

MyLifeOrganized (short, MLO) is a beast. The main pillar of MLO is customization. It is a suite which comes with a preset interface, but almost everything in it can be fully customized to the users needs.

MLO can work with Getting Things Done workflows. MLO can also do many other workflows. It is a large productivity task managing suite, which can adapt to virtually any workflow. During the initial setup, there are presets for multiple different methodologies. The very open customization capabilities make it a good app for virtually anything.

But, does it hold it’s promise? What features are customizable and how does it adapt to everybodys needs? We will take a look at this nice piece of software on all its supported platforms.
