Any The Getting Things Done (GTD) app you pickup should make it easy for you to store, track and retrieve all information related to the things that need to get done. GSDfaster takes care of all of this for you.
GTD method created by David Allen rests on the principle that a person needs to move stuff out of the mind by recording them externally. The GSDfaster app does exactly that! Helps you be more productive and less stressed so you can get on with life and get stuff done fast!
The Getting Things Done method created by David Allen rests on the principle that a person needs to move stuff out of the mind by recording them externally. GSDfaster follows this method allowing you to collect & process stuff.
The Pomodoro Technique technique uses a timer inside GSDfaster app to break down stuff collected into 25-minute intervals called 'Pomodori' (from the Italian word for 'tomatoes') separated by short breaks to get stuff done faster.
Why have multiple calendars when you phone already has a great one. GSDfaster can send stuff you collected to your phone's calendar. All you have to do is enable it and give your stuff a Due Date during processing.
The 1st thing you will notice when the app starts is the "Collect" box. Because like any GTD method your goal is to capture stuff throughout the day and only when you have free cycles process it (step 2).
Remember that “Stuff” is a catchall word, which can refer to an email, something at the back of your mind, a note, a voice-mail, a scrap from a newspaper, etc., i.e. any item that has been collected.
You need to empty collected items regularly. We recommend you do this at least once a day. Emptying means deciding what to do with—not actually doing— by processing and organizing the items one by one.
If it takes under two minutes to do something, it should be done immediately. Otherwise utilize the inbuilt Pomodoro Technique (see below) to help you get stuff done faster.
Read more about processing stuff on The Road to Silicon Valley blog and decide for yourself if this is something you will find useful.
Multitasking is a Human Delusion. Counter to common belief our brains do not multi task. That is where the Pomodoro Technique technique comes in forcing you to focus on the 1 task at a time since frequent breaks can improve mental agility and get stuff done faster.
This is done using GSDfaster's timer; breaking down stuff collected into 25-minute intervals as shown in the screenshot to the left. You start the timer and get to work. When the timer is up it alerts you via auditory & kinestatic means.
Ernest Semerda covered this great technique on his blog (The Road to Silicon Valley) under a post called Managing your time better using GSDfaster’s Pomodoro Technique. Check it out and let us know what you think.
Let's face it, the best calendar is the one that comes with your phone. It has iCloud integration across many devices and it works great with Gmail.
GSDfaster integrates with this calendar so when you schedule a Due Date it will add the stuff to your calendar. Simple and effective.

I love how this app flows through the GTD process, especially when the first thing I see when I open the app is "what is on your mind?". That is exactly why I go to the app bc something is on my mind! I have been away from the GTD methodology for a few years and this app has been awesome in helping me getting back in the GTD mindset and ultimately being more productive.
This app helps me get and be organized no matter where I am. Just dump all your nagging thoughts so you never forget a thing and you're on your way to being very productive. I've deleted all other productivity apps I had as this one takes care of business! Thank you.
Useful and simple to use. Steal at $0.99 Innit!
