The Android app, also titled GTD is made by DGT (say that three times fast), and as a standalone task manager, the application provides a ton of features, including lists, hotlists, recurring events, voice recognition for new tasks, and more. Casually included in this feature list is the synchronization capability with Toodledo, though it should be noted that an add-on application needs to be downloaded and installed to make this work.
Although the developer states upfront that the application is still in its alpha stage, there has been nearly nothing but positive praise for the application, and this reviewer will only add to the hype. DGT GTD is fast, responsive, and elegantly designed. The color coding system for tasks, dates, and labels in both the application and the included widget (iPhone users - wipe that drool off) is done in good taste and settings allow for a fair amount of customization.
The best part of DGT GTD is its fast sync with Toodledo. My first synchronization took a bit longer due to the number of tasks, but future syncs took only a few seconds, and best of all, background syncs are enabled. I have mine set to every hour, so I don't have to manually sync the application whenever I open or log in. This was a key feature missing from every single iPhone/iPad app that I tested. Not only does DGT have this capability, but it handles the auto sync very well and I haven't had any issues. Folders are synced perfectly, and changes made on either the mobile or web side are observed shortly after.
If you use Toodledo and you own an Android mobile phone or tablet, I highly recommend DGT GTD as an app to keep your tasks synchronized. As of this review, DGT GTD is free and available through the Android Market.
