Robust and much beloved personal productivity software for Mac Midnight Inbox Classic (that is version 1.5) is now available for free. Regarded as the best Getting Things Done (GTD) app by most gung-ho productivity enthusiasts, it’s being given away as a free download in anticipation to the release of the second version of the app — Midnight Inbox 2.0
Since it’s now freely available, let’s take a look at the app.
The system on which the app operates is divided into five main categories – Collect, Process, Organise, Review and Work.
The Collect tab automatically gathers files, documents, emails, tasks and bookmarks from specific folders or apps such as iCal and Mail.
The Process tab allows you to go through your collections, determining what needs to be done for each item. There is also an option to create new actions or projects based on the item.
Under the Organise tab, you can create projects or actions, and mark them as done as they are completed.
The Review tab gives you an overview of what requires your attention later or on a regular basis.
Under the Work tab, you can look at your projects and determine if they’re completed.
Midnight Inbox may sound difficult to use and probably is at first. However, over time and consistent use, this app pulls its weight around at helping you to organise your life and streamlines your task management system.
