Last year, Getting Things GNOME (GTG) app received a major overhaul with the release of v0.4 after more than six years of hiatus. Continuing the regular updates, v0.5 released a few days ago with more refinements and performance improvements.
GTG is a 100% free and open-source productivity application for maintaining daily tasks and to-do lists.
What Is Getting Things GNOME (GTG) App?
It takes inspiration from the Getting Things Done (GTD) methodology to allow you to keep track of everything for your small to large projects with thousands of tasks.
When you launch the application, the main window has three task view modes: “Open”, “Actionable”, and “Closed.”
The native GTK user interface is very sleek and simple to provide easy workflows.
Even the task editor has a fast timeout-based natural language parser. It has the ability to recognize subtasks if you start line with “-“.
The latest version 0.5 of Getting Things GNOME now also supports recurring tasks. You can toggle the recurrence button in the task editor or from the main window to keep reminding yourself of a particular task.
Here are the other major features of GTG:
- Support for emojis as tag icons
- Dark mode toggle
- Several plugins available
- Automatically remove the old closed task
- App-specific keyboard shortcuts
- Dedicated search system and saved search functions
- Developer console to play with GTG’s internals
- Flexible tagging system
