It's weird - I keep coming back to Nirvana after flirting with lots of other tools - I've recently had to go "cross platform". The niggles for me are essentially that it doesn't have a great note taking function and I can't add attachments (especially photos). But... it works. I've just spent the last couple of weeks playing with ClickUp, Marvin, and some others - and they're all great - and have lots of functions, yet it ends up as sand in the gears.
I do wish though that they would add a few more updates now and then
I took a look at Everdo and it looks amazingly like Nirvana. One thing that is holding me back from switching is I purchased a lifetime subscription to Nirvana, so no further costs. I think Everdo is $67 US dollars per year. But I guess if we do not see ANY progress in Nirvana by the end of the year, then perhaps it will be time to move on. We will see.We are all on the same boat.
My biggest issue with Nirvana is the lack of communication or wrong communication. One year ago I received a few emails from them which claimed that updates should be released in August 2019.
Fortunately, we are almost one year older and... nothing from them.
It is not about lack of new features. It is about deluding me and many other users.
Hence to that reason I consider a permanent switch to Everdo app which at least has very clear and honest communication with users.
Its similarity to Nirvana only makes this decision easier.
If Nirvana doesn't change its approach and Everdo implements most of the positions from its roadmap, the choice will be as easy as a sneeze.
Oh really? Wow - have you moved over? You stated that they are interactive with their clients. Tell me how you like using Everdo - now I may not wait until the end of the year.It is one time payment.
There is optional subscription for synchronization through internet which is 10€ annually.
Sync through local network is free.
I like a programmer's approach and attitude towards this project. That is why I have bought it - because I wanted to support his great work.Oh really? Wow - have you moved over?

I am sticking with Nirvana. I still think it is outstanding to use as my trusted GTD system.
HiAfter decades of search, the finding and the abandonment, like many of you I was very anxious to see NirvanaHQ succeed. But alas there is not the sense that development is a reasonably aggressive path. Now if you want to see an equally elegant execution but already way ahead of Nirvana and putting out notable, well thought out improvements every couple of months, head over to ClickUp. Very impressive.
I struggled with ClickUp - the iPhone app was too complex for use on the go and the overall system, whilst it was so close, still leaves me with the ever present "reference material" problem (which I use EverNote for).Hi
Are using ClickUp? I am using it but I am stuck on making my project task to appear in my Next Action List.
Yes, but this is just for the desktop Beta app. And the killer bug of if you empty the trash within the app, you no longer can add text to anything. You still have to close out the app and restart it. I reported this months ago. It is highly reproducible. And it is still there. I am very disappointed.Hello Everyone. Great news. Today we have Nirvana's update!
July 9, 2020
Desktop App, version 3.5.2 (macOS & windows 10)
- Keyboard navigation enhancements — Select tasks with up/down arrow keys; shift+up/down to select multiple tasks; option+up/down to move selected tasks; with tasks selected, right arrow to show notes, left arrow to hide notes, enter to edit, then enter to save changes; n key inserts a new task just below selected tasks; and bracket keys [ and ] are now what we use to traversing lists in the left navi.
- Drag-select fixes — Select tasks like you would select files and folders on your computer’s desktop, then right-click for options or drag selected items to another list.
- Legibility improvements — no more tiny fonts, and color contrast has been increased to help reduce eye strain.
- Dark mode is now a Nirvana Pro feature ( thank you supporting us!)
- Updated tons of underlying code libraries to latest versions.
- Updated tons of underlying code to enable theming and internationalization (in an upcoming release).
