Default Best GTD App for BB and Mac?

Please Login to Remove!

Looking for a good GTD App/Service that I can use in some desktop app on my MacBook Pro and sync it to my BlackBerry Bold. Doesn't need to be a standalone app on either end (can use iCal, built in Tasks on BlackBerry). Everything I've found looks like it just works between the BlackBerry and the web.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Matt

I use PocketMac now, but I would like something with a bit more power behind it for tasks, specifically wireless sync and connectivity. I'm routinely out of the office and can have my assistant upgrade tasks that will show up on my BlackBerry, but I'd like something to show up somewhere on my desktop as well.

Tried Remember the Milk and liked it a lot, it just didn't sync to a desktop app at all.

Rex Wireless has ToDoMatrix which is awesome. They also offer REXdesktop for accessing your info on either a pc or Mac. It's a paid app, but it's the best out there, very powerful.

Gonna check into that. I don't mind paying for software that does the job

Update us and let us know how it went. I started using PocketMac when RIM licensed it. I am not particularly enthralled about it, but at that same time, I migrated to BES, so it no longer was an issue. You might consider BES also. On a side note, I use Microsoft Office, and Entourage as my mail app, and why they don't sync Notes is beyond me.

Will do. I'm going to check it out over Christmas break... pretty swamped until then.

I looked into Hosted Exchange and BES, but it's just too much money for what it offers right now. I have my calendar syncing wireless with Google Sync and all my email accounts are either Gmail or Google Apps, so they get pushed right away. Don't mind plugging in for Contacts and Notes, but would like Tasks to sync wireless since I use them a lot for GTD-type stuff.
