    Finally!!! Just downloaded it on my iPhone 4.

    It was definitely worth the wait. The app looks great (better than Things) and it brings the great UI on the web to the iPhone. Great job!

    Some things which can be improved are:
    1. Notifications/Badges – Currently there are no notifications/Badges if the task is due/overdue
    2. Unable to show the due dates is relative days like on the web app.

    Well done all – been a long haul.

    Looks good on iPad! Look forward to Android version for phone!

  3. ahmad

    Very Great, thanx for your efforts

    time to really free our minds

  4. Danger

    This is great guys, been waiting for this for a while!

    The app is very slick, enjoying it already :)
    Great work!

  5. Mark Slater

    Fantastic – well worth the wait. Well Done!

    Why did I have the impression that despite there not being an iPad app that this would work on an iPad without the pixel doubling, I remember a post saying that it was an “easy win” to do it. Did I miss something? Look s great though! (at iPhone size)

  7. Sellaro

    Excelent work and patience exercise to get through Apple’s process.

    One thing I couldn’t understand, though: why not an universal app (for iPad and iPhone)? I think I’ve read here that it was easy (and already done) the preparation for a native execution on iPad without the need o fusing the 2x mode.

    Ether way, Nice job, folks.

  8. I’m interested to know what the resolution was with apple with regards to email addresses?

  9. Great news. Love it so far, and look forward to it continuing to grow. I’ll gladly pay for your service when you’re ready to go that route. Congrats!

  10. Great job folks! I just tested it out on my iPad. Very similar to the mobile web app, but has the speed to actually be useful. I’m sold!

    Except, er, um, I need it on… my… Android… :)

    Congratulations, Nirvana team! All best wishes…


  12. @Mark – re: the iPad 2x thing… it came down to a decision to shoot for both a great iPhone app followed by a great iPad app, rather than a universal app that was great on iPhone but amateur-hour on iPad. Hang in there… the iPad app will be coming soon.

  13. @Danger – getting through the App Review process was simply an exercise in patience and perseverance in the end. We didn’t have to revise a line of code — what we submitted was ultimately what went through. Pretty clear that there were multiple reviewers involved with a bit of broken telephone syndrome, having to re-explain our registration process and requirements each time ’round. In the end we had someone on the other end that understood and agreed that of course we need email address as a required field on a user account. You know how it goes… level one support, followed by “can I speak with your manager please.” But now it’s all good. :-)

  14. Elbert

    @Ram – yes, and yes… as in, both of your issues are in the pipeline to be addressed.

  15. Phil

    Congrats! I am waiting for the Android-version :)

  16. BB

    You have no idea how long I have waited for this app… and I’m so entirely, completely pleased! Great job on this amazing app! Hope the iPad turnaround will be quick!

  17. Brett Michaels

    The app is beautiful and worth the wait!!

  18. Adam

    Any chance the iPad app (or future updates to the iPhone app) could use the drag-and-drop interface that the web app uses?

  19. Senthil Natarajan

    Congratulations, Nirvana Team. Please get us started with Android app soon. Thanks.

    Great job! Works well enough on iPad and look forward to the true iPad app. Having this app puts an end to my exploring options!

  22. joebot

    I have been refreshing the App Store search for “Nirvana” for weeks…it was in the “search field” every time I opened the app. And when I saw that the list had gone from “19 more” apps with Nirvana to “20”. I knew it was going to be a good day!

    Congratulations to all who worked on this! In the few hours I have had it, it really seems awesome!

    I have been putting off doing any tasks for a month, while I waited for this. So, now I can finally use this to be productive.

    Now, I better go pay my 24-day late rent!!!

  23. nadra

    Fabulous app! Congrats! Now when can I start paying you guys?

  24. Michael

    Awesome job! I have also been obsessively checking this blog every day looking for updates. The App works great – very pleased!

  25. Pete

    Great step in mobility. I hope you make it for the iPad too.

  26. Ken

    Thanks N Team for not only a wonderful GTD system / apps and support group; but for putting up with us loyal and impatient task freaks!

  27. Martin

    Could you at least adjust the web version for IE on windows phone?

  28. Proximo

    Congratulations Nirvana Team. One more milestone down.

  29. radarpi

    Another thing to improve: quotivations are too fast I can hardly read them completely! I would like to have time to read them at least twice and to think abou it’s meaning.

    Awesome app! Thanks again!

  30. Jake

    What is my username?!? I don’t have one from what I can tell. I log into the web app using my email address but that doesn’t work for the iPhone app. I can’t fine my username listed anywhere. Haven gone crazy?

  31. Harv

    Congrats guys!

    I’ve had an account for a while but didn’t want to start using Nirvana until there was a true mobile app. Like many here, I went through tonnes of other “gtd” apps.

    This looks very promising.

  32. George

    Nice work (I guess) since I have an android I wouldn’t know. I’m still rooting for Nirvana!
    Any predictions on how much longer before an android app shows up?
    Is it in development?
    Just wondering.

  33. Loren Ransom

    This app is great. So functional and stable. I have been testing Wunderkit, but there website and app, while more pretty, aren’t as near as stable. Your app’s and website’s reliability wins the day!

  34. Rebecca

    The app is great! Thanks for all your hard work. It’s so fast and very usable. I use it on both the iPhone and iPad and it works great. I don’t mind the pixel doubling it just makes things easier to read for me.

  35. drdavies

    Is there a search function on the app? Can’t seem to find it if there is.

  36. @drdavies – re: search, not yet.
    mitch is working on it for future release.

  37. Jax

    :) happy to see the project is moving to mobile.
    Looking forward for Android version though :( pls pls pls
    Any timescale?

  38. Nemek

    Bad news. It requires ios5 – it means that iphone3g is not supported (ios 4.2).
    I’m dissapointed – I was waiting so long.
    It means that Remember The Milk is only option.
