To a certain degree I must agree with S. Sam that with PI 3, we have lost the "GTD" mode available in previous versions. This fact doesn't minimize the reading of this ebook.
GTD is a way of life and a near lifestyle. I can remember doing GTD with 3x5 cards, so it just takes just a little creativity to make it work in 3.0.

Review by: John :Vice on May 22, 2013 :
This book has two parts: (1) a condensed guide to the Getting Things Done (GTD) system and (2) its application to the PocketInformant ap. This 1-2 combination is the Productivity Ninja methodology. As a major adherent to GTD, I picked up a few points to refining my use of it. Likewise, as a PocketInformant user, I had a few “a-has” on how to better utilize this ap.
The iOS in the title is a misnomer as I found everything in the book is valid using PocketInformant’s (discontinued) BlackBerry version. My next phone will be an Android and I will definitely be side-grading to PocketInformant for Android and continue using Matthew Brown’s Productivity Ninja methods!

Into a couple of pages, the author gives two important pre-set-up instructions to do Ninja productivity: 1) Turn on GTD, 2) Turn on Starred Task.

Number 1 can't be done. There is no GTD mode in PI 3.0 !!!

So you can strop reading here.

I've been a user of Pocket Informant for some time, but have long felt that I was making use of only a fraction of its (growing) capabilities. This book went a long ways toward unlocking some of that heretofore untapped potential in the app, and more importantly nudged me into a concerted effort to be more organized and productive in my personal life (I'm retired, so this does not apply to gainful employment). Just a couple of minor complaints about the book that mighty be taken care of in subsequent editions: Illustrations seem to favor iPad rather than iphone, and some actions that were illustrated in the ipad version of the app required figuring out on the iphone. The only other complaint has to do with the book's not telling you how to implement (in Pocket Informant) some of the less major suggestions for organizing tasks (e.g. how to set aside tasks where you are waiting for someone else to do their part). The usefulness of the book far outweighs these minor shortcomings, and it certainly delivers great value for the modest expenditure involved.
