Please add a mobile app for andorid
Should we add an android app? Please vote!
This month we completed a new feature that is key to creating a mobile app.
The ability to use GTDNext without an internet connection.
For now we are focusing on making the mobile web experience top notch, but adding offline is a key for eventually doing mobile.
If you have not seen our mobile web experience it is getting quote good. Check it out here: https://youtu.be/Ew8F6lCrcZs It’s not as good as having a native app. But it’s usable for quickly checking on errands and adding items while on the go.

Maybe you could consider making your web interface mobile friendly instead of a native app for each platform? That would probably be easier to create and maintain.

On the Laptop, the Interface is very sleek and I absolutely like the functionality. Much better than hyped ToDoist who obviously did not have GTD in the back of their heads when designing their app... An android app would be great!
I really like the look of this system but without an app I won't be using it until there is a working app. It is not easily useable over internet on phone
Like others have said, GTDNext is brilliant data capture on the road is mission-critical and no Android app (that allows working off-line) is a deal breaker for me.
In the meantime, the web interface looks pretty rough on my android browsers - with text too small to read and pinch zooming breaking the page...

For me, I'll add that if you can't get to a fully featured app quickly, it would help to have an app or widget that at least can allow me to very quickly toss items into the inbox.
And next step would be something that lets me pick an AREA and see all NEXT ACTIONS and check off completed ones.
But best would be a fully featured app, of course.

This is is an absolute prerequisite for me adopting GTD Next. No Android app, no GTD Next for me. Like others, I like GTD Next so far. I love the ease of creating projects with tasks grouped into sub-projects. And I like the fact that the project can be recurring. That makes a great reusable project checklist. But I HAVE to have an Android app as my quick-capture device.

GTD Next looks really promising to me, but honestly, I won't even give it a try until there's a working Android app.
Robert Schultz commented
This would be just about a make-or-break for me. I use my Android for all things, work, school and personal. My initial experience with GTDNext has been positive, but I cannot afford to stick with it long, let alone go premium, if I cannot access it on my phone.
Please add android before iphone - the numbers speak for themselves...
I do want an android app but for GTD I think the most important mobile feature is the capture. I use Zapier to forward Evernote captures to GTDnext. If an good Android app is too much at this time, then could you look to better support setups like mine? e.g. support attachments from Evernote like photos and files as well as the simple line of text.
What did write the developers of other GTD app concerning native mobile and tablets apps:
Bad mobile strategy
Since the beginning we decided to offer native Android and iPhone apps. The reason is that, when we made the decision, that was the alternative to offer the best user experience.
Unfortunately, offering native apps means we need to maintain 3 completely separated products. Creating a new feature implies designing it for 3 different systems, coding it 3 times and having 3 different sources of bugs and support requests. This has slowed us beyond what we consider acceptable.
We are a very small company. Our app has been profitable since we launched our premium subscriptions. But we have little interest in growing in size. So we are changing this.
