I found an interesting post at surfgarden about a GTD related posting at Dennis Best. He is talking about taming the GTD workflow with Leopards build-in tools like Mail.app and iCal instead of dedicated GTD applications like OmniFocus, Things, Midnight Inbox or iGTD.
A central point in his argumentation is the effort to setup and maintain the dedicated applications. He uses the new Data Detectors of Mail.app, the central ToDo lists, iCal, SmartFolders and saved searches for his GTD workflow instead.
But when I look to his setup efforts to customize Mail.app, the smartfolders, bending iCal to support contexts and simulating universal input by AppleScripts I can’t help myself to doubt that this is more easy than using OmniFocus for instance.
OmniFocus has all these features and even fetches certain things from my Mail.app inbox. I don’t had to setup much to get into it.
So what’d you think about this approach?
