What does the David Allen Company recommend for implementing GTD® Task lists on the iPhone?
The iPhone was not built with a Tasks application, so you will need to find an App that will support the GTD best practices for a list manager (e.g. sort by category/context, allow but not force due dates, allows related notes to be attached to the Task, etc.) What you choose for the iPhone would depend primarily on what do you need to sync it to. The corresponding application you want to sync it to (Mac, PC or Web) would narrow down the best application for you to install on the iPhone for Tasks. The end result is that you would have a Tasks application on the iPhone–>syncing through a service–>that then shares that information with a corresponding application on the web or desktop.
Also, be sure you understand what makes a good GTD list manager. For example, if you read Getting Things Done, or even any of our Setup Guides, there are some key things a good list manager would need to have to work well. It’s not just about storing a flat list of To Do’s. If you understand the best practices, then you’ll find the sea of Apps in the iTunes store much easier to wade through. If you’re starting from scratch on all of this, read this post on How to Choose a GTD system.
The only platform we have any specific recommendations for is Mac. We recommend and endorse OmniFocus for the Mac and iPhone. For PC and Web users, there are many options, but we do not have any specific recommendations around that at this point. We will post updates if that changes.
