With Nozbe you can manage and get your tasks done anytime and anywhere. Nozbe has apps for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, OS X, Windows, and Linux, as well as a universal web interface. The sync works smoothly and handles off-line work responsively – all the work saved on your device will be synced to the servers as soon as you’re back online.
Pro Nice and simple user interface
Nozbe is based on Getting Things Done (GTD), a productivity philosophy created by David Allen. However, you don't need to know the methodology to use the tool. You can just add projects, tasks, and attachments, and gradually learn to use the other features to organize your time even better.
Pro Great real-time team collaboration features
Nozbe can be a perfect tool to manage communication, data, and workflow for teams – large and small. Features like comments, @mentions, admin/guest roles, attachments, and categories are great for managing all the documents and emails associated with a project. You can also invite people who don't have Nozbe account to participate in your projects.
Pro Practical integrations with some favorite tools
Nozbe integrates with email, Evernote, Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, Google Calendar, etc.
Pro Nozbe.HOW templates
Nozbe users curate a vast collection of free templates that share everything from favorite recipes to tried-and-true vacation itineraries.

Clean, intuitive user interaction. The design is very thoughtful. Somehow it makes Things feel clunky, despite obvious similarities of all GTD platforms.
Pro Allows setting how much effort a task will take
You can set how long a task will take and how much effort will it ask of you on a scale of 1 to 3.
Pro Allows to add postponed tasks
You can postpone a task. It helps not to clutter task lists up until you really need them.
Pro Beautiful interface
Clean, intuitive interface — both desktop and mobile. Lots of intelligent design thinking behind this. Somehow makes other GTD apps like Things feel clunky, despite similarities.
Pro Can email focus list
The app can send you the most important items for the day in an email.
Pro Allows adding items via email
Con Limited free plan
After the free trial you can choose to remain on a free plan, but you’ll be restricted to a max of 5 projects and will have limitations on collaboration.
Con Task dependencies missing
Nozbe is great, but one shortcoming relates to "task dependencies" in projects. You should be able to sequence your tasks so that, when you complete a task, the next one that needs to be done becomes the "priority" task for that project. This is a vital feature that will make the program dramatically more useful. The company claims to be working on this improvement.
Con No native desktop applications yet
Currently the only way to access the app on a desktop machine is via a webapp.
