From Topic: dropbox

I use TaskUnifier (free) and the ToodleDo plugin (<$10) and set it up to store the data files in DropBox. This way I can use TaskUnifier on other machines, accessing these data files (not at the same time, though!) in DropBox.

A couple of caveats - The data files will not be synced by DropBox while TaskUnifier is open, so make sure you close the application and wait a few seconds for syncing to complete. Don't let your computer sleep or shut down without closing TaskUnifier and letting it sync or you may lose data. Make sure that you set TaskUnifier to do regular backups.

I was using DGT but now I'm trying Ultimate... Why do you think DGT is better?

Thanks ;)

For me, it is the user interface that I really like in DGT. I use this primarily on a Nook Color running CM7.1. DGT gives me a really nice looking full pane with multiple views. Ultimate's UI is a split screen affair, and doing anything in it seems to take 3 times longer for me. As for functionality between the two, I believe they are equivalent, at least for what I use.

DGT is listed at "Alpha" and the sync plugin at "Beta", but I have had zero problems and I assume that the developer will be adding more features.

I am looking at both of these myself.

TaskUnifier is a Java application, which means it is cross-platform (I'm not a big fan of Java apps in general, but TaskAngel is .Net based which isn't much better in terms of speed, and limits it to Windows).

The ToodleDo plugin for TaskUnifier is only $12.99 (base program is open source and free), as opposed to TaskAngel, which is $19.99, and is not open source.

TaskUnifier also has an Outlook plugin for free that makes it easier to add tasks from within Outlook. I do not believe that TaskAngel offers that functionality.

TaskAngel seems to have a little more polish, but to be honest, the thing that is swaying me toward TaskUnifier is that you can use it on as many computers as you want as long as you use the same ToodleDo account. TaskAngel limits you to 2 machines.

I wanted to chime in here with praise for DGT-GTD. I purchased and have been using Ultimate To-Do List Tablet for the past year on a Nook Color running CM-7, and although it has worked well, I could never really get used to the UI.

This week I gave DGT-GTD a go after reading positive reviews in this thread. All I have to say is Wow! The UI is clean and logical, and syncing so far has been flawless. I use notebooks a lot and I really like the way it handles notes, and even includes mark-up inserters for bold, italics and underline.

Even though this is listed as "Alpha" version for the app, and "Beta" for the ToodleDo syncing app, these are more polished and reliable that just about any Android apps I've tried. It looks like more features are planned, but is very usable as-is.

I like it so much that I made a donation to the developer, something I've never done for a free app.

(I will say that since this is a pre-release product, I do daily XML backup's of ToodleDo, just to be on the safe side)

From Topic: Best third-party app?

Ultimate To-Do (tablet edition) is my most-used app on my rooted Nook color. Syncing is rock solid.

I've been very satisfied with Ultimate To Do, the tablet version is functional and provides offline editing and (so far) flawless synching. I've also moved all my notes over to Toodledo from an outliner and Ultimate has really nice notebook editing.
