Another web app that follows the Get Things Done framework of David Allen. Neptunehq.com is a small and simple site that allows users to input items, projects or tasks on the site or via email. Neptune also is a means to remind users of pending tasks and events. Other features include keeping a calendar, and keeping documents tagged and uploaded to various projects.

It has a very simple, clean and easy to use interface. Tasks and schedules can be checked easily on the site, with events listed by date making it easy to see what needs to be prioritized or what need to be done. The web app is not free, however. When you sign up, you will be given a 15 day unlimited access to all Neptune's features. After your trial account expires, you be asked to upgrade your account for a small payment of $10 for a whole year. For that amount, you will get the features already mentioned as well as daily reminders of what you need to get done through emails.

Also an advantage of Neptune is the fact that it is works on almost any browser. Your files therefore are accessible anywhere around and world and anytime you desire, as long as you have internet access.

You have control over managing your schedules and task assignments. You can indicate if the project or task has been deferred, or have been moved someday. One can add text information to specific items to make things clearer and help organize tasks better. The web app will automatically manages your next actions and sends you a daily email of scheduled tasks, reminders, and events for that day. Projects or contexts can be emailed directly or can be created into PDF files.

It might be worth it to subscribe to Neptune's services. The simplicity of the web app and the cheap subscription price is a good combination. However, personally I would prefer to use RememberTheMilk, I like the interface better and it has a some added features that I like plus their services are 100% free.
