Ratings and Reviews
Great GTD solution, but no native feel
Nirvana is the best of the GTD options out there on the web. It adheres very closely to the GTD philosophy and lets me get through my tasks with minimum effort. The pricing is quite reasonable too.
Unfortunately, I have to take off one point because the app feels more like a website than a native iOS app at times. I could deal with the clunky animations, but the lack of support for subtle things like going back by swiping in from the left side of the screen still catches me from time to time. A full rewrite isn’t necessary, but more attention to platform conventions would be appreciated if they’re not going to go the native route.
If you use the web version, this app is a great companion. If you only want something for mobile though, you may want to look at other options with better mobile offerings.
Excellent organizing tool
Are you nerdy about organizing your life? Will you spend hours building a system and workflow in order to save yourself just a few minutes every time you touch a certain task? Do you like to have things in their right place?
This app is designed specifically around the GTD method, and in my experience with trialing all sorts of options out there I believe Nirvana does the best job following the system created by David Allen. For those new to GTD, as I am, the process takes a unique approach to task management which requires an initial investment of time and consideration to lay out a map for how to best integrate it into your life. For instance, I spent a full weekend working on integrating it into my email systems (Outlook Exchange for work and Gmail at home) as well as building a system that fits my needs within Nirvana, and today I continue to find ways to tweak the system for increasing productivity. Read or listen to the book first, otherwise this app may be confusing for you.
Things 3 Killer
I’d like to dub Nirvana the Things3 killer. It has a beautiful and minimalist UI. (And the initial investment isn’t too steep to try it out). The concepts are just so easy to understand and implement strait out of the box. I was getting todo overwhelm with other task manager apps. Constant reminders, overdo , etc. I think nirvana keeps me more balanced when it comes to not crear a productivity toxic environment. I know many people keep complaining about alerts in nirvana. I actually find it peaceful not to be alerted. If I really need a reminder I use my phones native reminder app. But for my tasks I just open the app and look at my focus. It really is task nirvana.
My only recommendation would a quick entry to the inbox. Something where I can quickly input what’s on my mind.
