Filed under: Viira, Viira Sync, android, gtd — Tags: , , — admin @ 2:33 am

Viira 6.0 for Android is almost ready for general availability, and we thought we’d give you a sneak peak in what the new release of Android has to offer.

Key in this release are the organizational improvements in the Day View: you will see a nicer layout and a more intuitive calendar and reminder selectors.

The Overdue Tasks area has also been enhanced. You will see a dedicated menu for the Overdue Tasks giving you a number of one-tap power features, such as moving all your overdue tasks for today or marking them all as completed.

Under the hood, version 6.0 includes a number of significant sync and architectural enhancements which our engineering team has been working on over the last little while. Although not immediately visible these “building blocks” will form the underpinning of future updates and enhancements!

And here are some screenshots from the very-soon-to-be-available release:

    GTD Templates: How To Use Them?

    Filed under: gtd, poll — Tags: — admin @ 12:23 am

    While not part of the core set of GTD principles per se, templates can be a valuable, practical tool that can save time and make certain activities easier to plan and organize. The topic of templates has come up a few times in our email conversations with many of you who use Viira and the Viira Outlook Suite every day and as part of our drive to provide richer support for some of the more advanced aspects of Getting Things Done we want to see if there is something our team can do to make templating easy, effective and intuitive.

    So, how do you use templates? Do you use them entirely to enhance your GTD workflow or also to incorporate techniques from methods such as The Checklist Manifesto? How would you like to use templates in Viira to make your life easier?

    Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below or drop us an email to our support lines. We would very much appreciate your suggestions as we figure out how exactly to add support for GTD templates in Viira.
