iAdd is a new approach towards productivity. It's based on a life management framework called ADD, which in turns takes its name from Assess, Decide, Do. Those are stages, or realms in which we are using our focus.
Many productivity methodologies are based exclusively on the Do realm, while leaving the other two main areas of our activities untouched.
iAdd aims to integrate this life management framework in a very simple and easy to use app.
Assess - overload your internal system with information: add tasks, ideas, events or projects. This is the place where you can edit or delete information. ADD enforces a single entry point for overloading your system.
Decide - "sign the contract" to actually do that task or project. You do this by bounding the task to your physical environment: setting up a time-frame and a specific context.
Do - you see only what you decided earlier. Not extra clutter, not floating tasks or events, only what you decide you really want to do.
And yet, all the other available info would be available in the Assess or Decide at any time.
- sync your data wireless via 3G, EDGE or WiFi between iPhone and iPad apps via iCloud
- send tasks, events, projects or ideas by email
- powerful life management framework, enforcing a smooth workflow to help you not only get things done, but also have a real life :-)
- unique insertion point (the Assess realm)
- local alerts for tasks and events
- unlimited number of contexts and collections
- unlimited number of tasks, ideas, events and projects
- brainstorm your projects first with ideas, and then transform them into projects with a simple touch

Force closes in landscape mode on iPad 2
Super love this app as it helps me takes into account what I will really get around to doing versus what I need to do but simply cannot at the moment. I've been using it on my iPod touch and recently on the iPad 2. Unfortunately, when in landscape mode, the app won't even stay open! It force closes if you try opening it landscape mode and when switching to landscape from portrait. Frustrating because I started using the iPad with a keyboard and I don't have a stand that lets me prop the iPad in portrait mode while typing. Other than this bug, I highly recommend it!
Really intuitive move to creating quick steps for getting your to do
I've gone through a lot of productivity apps and repeatedly scrapped them for good old pen and paper because they didn't link up with the steps my mind naturally goes through in working through projects. I love how this app is broken down logically. It's easy to use and makes me excited to move my To Dos from one section to the next to done. I had one very small issue with time zones (because I travel a lot!) but after contacting the developer, this was addressed immediately. I highly recommend this app for those out there sick of fighting with To Do lists and apps that don't work.
iAdd is an excellent app if you want to get out of the "add things to a list and then cross them off" world of productivity. It incorporates much from the GTD world (such as Contexts), but really shines in the area where GTD leaves off - where we assess what's important to us and make decisions based on what we want to do.
The app is based on Dragos Roua's Assess-Decide-Do framework - without an understanding of this framework, it could easily be mistaken for just another to do list with what seem like some extra useless steps. I strongly suggest that the user takes the time to learn the framework (links are in the app) to get the most from it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
