Midnight Inbox takes all the hard work out of implementing David Allen’s Getting Things Done system, but is certainly not for the faint of heart. If you’ve never used a robust GTD system, it will take some getting used to.

However, like all GTD applications, the steep learning curve is almost always worth your while.

If you’re interested in organising your life, Midnight Inbox is the perfect tool — and we have 10 licenses worth $350 to give away to 10 lucky winners!

The system is divided into five main categories – Collect, Process, Organize, Review and Work.

The Collect tab automatically collects files, documents, events, tasks and bookmarks from specific folders or apps such as iCal, Mail and Safari. The items shown can be limited to new files and events anywhere from the past hour to the past year.


The Process tab allows you to go through your collections, determining what needs to be done for each item. Will it take less than 2 minutes to complete? Does it require further action from you in the future? Or are you done with it and can it be filed? Think of it as a virtual filing cabinet.

Under the Organize tab you can create projects, assign tasks or actions, and mark these actions as done as you complete them. You can determine how long an action should take, when it’s due, and assign a context to it – such as work, home, errands etc.

The Review tab gives you an overview of what your actions are and what has been accomplished, and is divided into daily and weekly reviews.

Under the Work tab, you can look at your actions organized by context.

An interesting feature is the little prompt that appears every now and then, asking if you are being productive, or as they put it “Are you shaving a yak?” For people with a short attention span, this will serve as a great reminder to get back to work!

Midnight Inbox is highly customizable and when used correctly, you won’t be able to remember how you ever got anything done without it before. Download the unrestricted 14-day trial and give it a whirl.
