Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro GTD style lists
All the “Get Things Done” lists you would expect: next actions, someday, waiting, and scheduled.
Pro Automatic next actions
When it comes to choosing your next action, most to-do apps suffer from the same problem: All of your actions (sometimes hundreds in total) are visible to choose from. This can overwhelm users and cause them to give up on the system. GTDNext is different. In the "Next Action" view, only the very next action is shown for each of your projects. This results in a nicely consolidated view of only the things that need your immediate attention.
Pro Unlimited levels of projects and actions
In GTDNext you can set up an unlimited number of levels for your projects and actions, allowing you to plan your project and sub-projects in as much detail as needed.
Pro Areas of Focus
GTDNext supports the “Areas of Focus” methodology from Getting Things Done. You can filter all of your tasks to just show your work tasks, side project tasks, or personal tasks. There is also a global filter, so that when you’re hard at work you can focus only on your work projects and tasks.
Pro Option to visualize all projects and tasks in a single outline view
This is really useful because it prevents you from having to navigate through each project individually.
Pro Many keyboard shortcuts available

Pro Three different themes to choose from
You have three options (classic, outliner, and dark) for themes. The differences are specific to how your content is formatted (for example: how bullets are displayed, if at all). You can also toggle the "grayscale" option if you don't want your tags to be in color.
Pro Well designed interface
