Here we review My Life Organized(MLO), which takes a hierarchical task list and applies a
Getting Things Done(GTD) interface. It supports multiple platforms, Windows, Android and IOS,
but today I will be reviewing the Windows App. There are aspects of it that I really liked and the
others……were excellent. Here's the roundup.
There are many todo list, task management and GTD apps out there these days. But, surprisingly
few of them have native Windows support. Bit of a shame really as there are many people who
spend 8 hours a day in front of this interface so it would seem natural to have a native app. But
no, in many cases a web browser must be used and in most cases the data will then be stored off
site. Call me a traditionalist but I like having a local fast program that saves data on my computer.
Such an approach may not be ideal for team collaboration where online services may be a more
appropriate solution but for many people a single user application is sufficient for tracking their
tasks. And, ladies and gentlemen, is where My Life Organized enters the picture. It offers a native
windows app that saves your task information in a local XML file. That is not to say the data can
only be accessed there, for it offers a variety of options for you to access it on multiple platforms.
Let's take a look at the program and the features in more detail.
The User Interface can be divided up into three main areas.
To the left we have views, whereby the tasks can be sliced and diced and viewed from whatever
perspective you wish. For example, the next task by project, tasks by context etc. Additional tabs
can also be created, each with a different view. For example, you may wish to have one tab
configures by project, another by context and another for active tasks.
The centre region provides a view of the task and allows new items to be entered in a hierarchical
form. This is pretty straightforward.
The area to the right allows for task information to be entered. This includes the usual splattering
of task info such as start and due dates, comments, effort etc. This can be disabled should you
want a clutter free view of the tasks.
