Another nice little GTD toy that I just saw this evening is called GTD widget for iCal. It’s a widget. Yeah, right, I already told you that :-). It’s a widget that talks with your iCal, and helps you easily input informations – actually ToDo’s – into your iCal without having it open. Right, how come anybody haven’t thought yet to widgetize the GTD methodology so far, they did it well with the wiki, but not with GTD… –
Each calendar is called an “Inbox” by the developers, and in the widget you can select from a nice combo-box the “Inbox” of your choice. Input your ToDo and you’re set, it will be saved into your calendar in iCal. There is also a zone called “Next Actions” but it’s not what you imagined, is just a list for your “today” ToDo’s in each of your “Inbox”-es… I know, it’s a real GTD twisting here, but let’s hope the developer knows that too ;-)…
Anyway, I think that for a very early application it has some future, especially if the developer will not remain iCal-centric and try to make this into a “real” GTD widget. It’s actually really interesting if they will manage to think it right and do it better than now, because that will open a path where only Quicksilver has been before… And that’s good 🙂[tags]GTD software, Mac OS widgets, iCal[/tags]
