I don’t know what the deal is with all the task management software coming out for the BlackBerry lately, however, got-2 Task Management isn’t half bad and is free so we thought that we would give you the heads up about.
What I like about got-2 is how it integrates with both your calendar and GPS so it will remind of tasks based that you need to do not only based on the time that they are due, but if you are near the location where you need to do them.
Let’s say that you have a task like “pick up a gallon of milk”. got-2 to can notify you when you get near the grocery store.

first!!! Im just kidding. Free is always good. Im going to give this a try. Thanks for the info.
If you are banging your head against a wall trying to look at or use this OTA using the link provided, it is because of the “desktop” path in the url.
Try this instead:
Tried it out, not for me. Deleted it off my device to get my precious memory back.
Careful! If you go to gwhizmobile.com and try to download OTA, you might end up being suckered out of $9.99/month. I hate companies who do this so I’m not even going to waste my time checking out gwhizmobile.com/mobile.
Thank you for the feedback.

I get my both freeware andd paid at http://www.pdatopsoft.com , what I like there is 30% OFF Blackberry title evry week.
Am I missing something? I have to enter my phone #, and get charged 9.99/month for the free download?
Downloading all gWhiz products is free. Make sure you scroll to the bottom of the downloads page to pick the free software you are looking for: got-2 (Task and Assignment Manager), gCalc! (Calculator), gFlash+ (Flashcards and Trivia), gRef (pocket reference).
At the top of the downloads page is a section that includes advertisements. It looks like you may have clicked on an advertisement at the top of the page.
Sorry about the confusion, we put a set of lines around the Ads to help distinguish them as advertisements vs. the free downloads below them.
One quick follow-up. To eliminate the confusion on that downloads page, we have taken off the advertisment that was causing the problem.
Thanks for the feedback!
I installed the APP and it is pretty cool. I removed it because I dont like the Ads and I saw this in the agreement (or Big Brother) “gWhiz may provide certain services through your phone that rely upon location information. To provide these services, gWhiz and its partners may collect, maintain, process and use your location data, including the real-time geographic location of your phone. By using or activating any location-based services on your phone, you agree and consent to gWhiz’s and its partners’ collection, maintenance, processing and use of your location data to provide you with such services. The location data is collected in a form that does “
Thanks for the post. You left off the end of th sentence which says “The location data is collected in a form that does not personally identify you.” got-2 accesses the GPS on your device to provide location based alerts that you establish, e.g., get a pop-up reminder at the hardware store with a list of items you need. If you enter an address into a location based alert, got-2 will pop-up a BlackBerry or Google Map for you to confirm the location where you want the alert to trigger. gWhiz does not collect any of that GPS info or store it in a database. You’ll also notice when you downloaded got-2 for free there was no prompt for name, address, phone#, … because we do not want to know/maintain that data either. We’re assuming at some point the advertisements will be more location aware and our ad sponsors will want to target impressions to certain zip codes but that is not taking place at this time. I hope this helps explain our current capability. Please see our forum site as well: http://forum.gwhizmobile.com/showthread.php?t=11
We’re also considering a version with no ads and would appreciate anyones thoughts on a reasonable price point.
When can we expect a tested version for the Storm. Everytime I get a location based alert, it gives an exception. Any ETA here?
