[prMac.com] Fishers, Indiana - Daze End Software today released a new version of their task manager for the iPhone and iPod touch, Action Lists. Action Lists is designed specifically for the popular Getting Things Done (GTD) methodology created by David Allen. Action Lists has many GTD-specific features, and this new version adds user requested features like searching and the ability to create tasks from the contents of the iPhone's clipboard.
"Most of the popular productivity apps for the iPhone support Getting Things Done in some manner," said Charles Perry, owner of Daze End Sotware, "but they do it while trying to still appeal to a general audience. In the process, their GTD support becomes watered down. Action Lists doesn't make this mistake. It's designed specifically for GTD, and doesn't make compromises."
One of the more unique features of Action Lists is its ablility to "sync to the cloud." Data in Action Lists can be syncrhonized with the popular, and free, Toodledo web service. Through Toodledo, users can access their tasks with a number of different applications and services including Apple iCal, Microsoft Outlook, Jott, and Google Calendars.
Action Lists has all the features that one would expect in a task manager such as searchable task lists, and subproject support, but Action Lists also includes GTD-specific features not seen in other task managers for the iPhone, according to Perry. "Users can set up a 'tickler file' in Action Lists so that future tasks remain hidden until a specified start date. Then, when the start date is reached, they appear in your inbox, ready for processing." Action Lists also offers the ability to email tasks to others from within the app, and a unique feature that creates a list of tasks from the contents of the iPhone's clipboard.
* iPhone or iPod touch 3.0 or later
Pricing and Availability:
Action Lists is available to be purchased through the iPhone App Store at a price of $9.99 USD. For those that would prefer to "try before you buy," a limited version called Action Lists Lite is available in the App Store for free. App Store promo codes are available for the press to download review copies of Action Lists upon request (U.S. App Store only).
