Oh the weather outside is getting a little frightful, but that's all right. As long as I have my iOS device to keep me warm, I'll be all right. And here's just a few of the price drops and freebies burning up our mobile devices these days.
The Getting Things Done (GTD) method of organizing tasks is a favorite among productivity seekers, and many apps support it. Firetask might be simple, but it still manages to fit in the core elements of GTD.
GTD works by following a simple three-stage approach to managing tasks: collect, organize, and review. Firetask mirrors this approach nicely, with an inbox for collecting items, a Focus section for putting them into projects, and a Review section to scheduling those tasks on a calendar. The interface is simple, making the whole process very quick and painless--after all, spending long chunks of the day tinkering with a GTD app isn’t quite as productive as actually doing your work.
We’ve all been there. You work eight hours, come back home, and drive to the grocery store, and it’s not until you get home again that you remember you had to pick up your dry-cleaning. Before you know it, it’s time for bed and you left your children at karate class. Oh well, you’ll just have to pick them up tomorrow.
There are a ton of productivity applications out there that will help you plan a project, sort through a complex series of tasks, or simply get things done. While power users might need to download applications like Things or Omnifocus to keep their affairs in order and synced across multiple piece of hardware, many day-to-day users don't need the raw organizational power that those sorts of software packages provide. If your to-do list needs are spartan, we've got an easy to use solution that will help you keep on top of of everything in your busy life.

you've spent these last days re-watching Apple's guided tour videos,
reading rumor leaks, and dreaming of all the ways you'll be able to
cover your iPad with fingerprints this weekend. Hey, you're not alone
-- we've been doing the same things lately, and we've assembled a list
of the first 10 things to do once your iPad is in hand.
