More on impending updates to Nozbe mobile apps

Earlier today Nozbe shared further details on the impending updates to Nozbe for iOS, in addition to announcing the launch of Android v1.1 with “much-improved speed, lots of fixes and support for “rich” comments”. As an iPhone user, I’m keenly awaiting the updates to the iOS app but I have to admit the announcement has […]

Evernote 5 for Mac: First impressions

As consumers I think it’s easy for us to take improvement cycles for granted – “If they want me to continue to pay out they’ll keep improving their product…” – but given the amount of poorly conceived and poorly executed applications I wade through on a daily basis I think it’s appropriate when your “go-to” […]

To Stack, or not to Stack…the Evernote question

One of the things that has surprised me as I’ve started to get to grips with Evernote and read around the subject, is the variety of ways people are using it.

Getting to grips with Nozbe contexts

Let me be clear: I’m new at this.  I’ve been on the productivity bandwagon for a few weeks now, so I make no claim to guru status.  Yet I’m hoping I can share a few of my initial observations from my experience using Nozbe and can at least share with you one possible approach for […]

Starting Out

I’m ashamed to admit that there was a time in my life where I took a little self-congratulatory pleasure in telling people that I’d bought David Allen’s book “Getting Things Done”, but that I hadn’t gotten round to finishing it (gosh aren’t I the witty one)… It wasn’t until recently, as I ploughed through yet […]
