Fully featured keyboard shortcuts
A full set of keyboard shortcuts to use the web app quickly. The goal would be that using the keyboard alone, someone can work very quickly and have no need for the mouse.
1) Text manipulation (moving, copy, deleting, batch selecting, etc)
2) Field entry (adding tags, setting status, operations work with batch selection, etc)
3) Navigation (switch to Inbox view, Action view, Waiting view, etc)
Today we added more keyboard shortcuts. Check out the blog article which shows them.

I totally agree that keyboard shortcuts are crucial. One you remember them they are at least 10+ times faster than working by mouse.
As my little gift to this community, I have created this page.
AFAIK, it contains all current GTDNext shortcuts. If anything is missing feel free to add to or edit the page yourself.
I would especially like to see it possible to add tags and dates "in line" when we add a task. I've been quite spoiled by apps that allow this.
For example, I would simply add a task that is: "Weed the Garden @yard #April 4th" And the @ symbol tells the app it's a tag, the # symbol tells it's a date. Features like that make entering tasks much quicker and more intuitive.

This feature would make me use this app exclusively for my GTD workflow. I'm totally blind and use a screen reader to navigate the web. While there is no perfect GTD app, yours comes the closest, but the inability for me to use the keyboard for some things (which are covered here) make it hard for me to use gtdnext. If you were to implement more keyboard shortcuts, you would have an entire market of blind computer users who could use the app and you would be ahead of the competition in that respect.
