To celebrate Nirvana’s transformation from beta to a fully paid for product I’ve packed up my trusted system Nozbe and migrated my tasks and projects to Nirvana for a few weeks. This is not something I’ve undertaken lightly as Nozbe has never let me down but I wanted to give Nirvana a good honest review and living and breathing the system on a day to day basis seemed the best way.
Version 1 (N1) of Nirvana launched into beta 3 years ago and over the years a solid web app has grown and expanded into Version 2 (N2) thats available today. At it’s heart is a HTML5 web application that works in all modern browsers, one of it’s impressive features is that it works really well offline! So many times i’ve played with web applications that say they work offline only to fall short, but Nirvana does work really well offline.
Would it be fair to say it bears a passing resemblance to ‘Things’ on the Mac? I think so. In fact it’s easy to forget that this web application as the whole interface is very slick utilizing drag / drop and right clicking seamlessly.

I’ve been tipped off that the public beta of Wunderlist 2 has begun and the 1st round of beta invites have been sent out. After Wunderkinder ceased development of the ambitious Wunderkit its thought that Wunderlist 2 will be a return to their roots by delivering a cleaner more simple suite of applications. No news of a release date currently, but did you find an invite in your inbox today? Any first impressions?
A number of years ago I signed up for a course with Priacta - TRO (Total Relaxed Organization) to help myself get organized, for me TRO eased me onto my productivity journey. TRO has it’s roots in GTD but deviates in some interesting ways that expand on the fairly rigid GTD rules of David Allen. It’s well worth a look if your looking for some structured productivity training and I hope to complete a small write up soon as it did have a huge impact on my own productivity journey.
Anyway, Trog bar was also my 1st foray into GTD software and really helped my turn work based MS Outlook tasks and emails into something really useful. If your productivity life is based in Windows Outlook Trog bar at 5$ could be a smart investment for you. Head over to the Priacta website for full details of this offer.
