I'm unfortunately going to have to post this in a few places because I don't know where it's going to get the most exposure, but I'll start here because I have a Desire.

I need an app to manage the various projects that I have going on. In some ways, you can think of it as a todo application which has subtasks, projects/groups, action lists, sorting via time till due/time taken/project/importance etc.

If you have the time, check out this site where there guy goes through a number of options and criteria for a good GTD (getting things done) application.

I've tested:
OpenLoops
Astrid
Goals Todo

For starters, Astrid cannot sort by tag/project and non have sub-tasks.

I'm really hoping there is a project management app out there and someone can help me.

Is this purely an offline GTasks? (I couldn't really see much in the way of features.) If it is, GTasks is quite a basic todo manager, let alone project manager.

Projects feature for Astrid is currently in development. Don't expect it all that soon though.

Someone suggested Got To Do + Toodledo. Seems to have much going for it. Testing it out now.

Have you tested 'action complete'
Their website: http://actioncomplete.com/android
Review of it: http://www.androidtapp.com/actioncomplete/

It's free and was built around GTD system afaik. It allows for sorting and projects with 'actions' and 'waits' within them. Good luck

You might want to try Thymer.
It's online and I believe it's not free but they have a beta running for Android.

I'm also looking for something similar. My only real requirement is sub-tasks though.

Got To Do seems nice, but to get sub tasks you have to pay for a pro license for ToodleDo, after you pay for the app itself. I'm sure its not expensive, but still...

Action Complete doesn't seem to have sub tasks.

I've also checked out Astrid and OpenLoops.

I thought the whole idea of GTD was to break a task down into smaller sub-tasks so you can "get things done".

I think I was actually using ToodleDo on my iPhone, but I don't recall having to pay to get sub tasks. Perhaps that is new.

Any methodologies in mind? Any back end software like MS Project Server or open source PM apps / servers in mind? I.e. how far down the rabbit hole do you want to go?

How far? Currently I don't need to intergrate with any MS software (or similar) though if it was offered and useful I wouldn't say no.

What I would like to have as a high priority are:

1. Ability to manage different projects (obviously).

2. Ability to plan projects - form project trees, some may have tasks, some may have notes, some may have links etc.

3. An online/desktop backup/sync. Simply because I hate the thought of all my information being in one place.

4. A UI that is easy to assess what is going on and what is coming up.

There are obviously other things required but it's difficult to list everything which is why I attached that site that pretty much lists most of them.

@Powder79, I just looked at Thymer. It looks a bit too basic but thanks for the suggestion.

Currently I'm trying out Toodledoo + Got To Do. It seems to have most but it really does suck for giving your tasks/actions a quick look to see the state (active/waiting/reference/etc). It just has date due and overdue.

If you imagine a bastard love child of Astrid (Android), Goals ToDo (Android), Toodledoo (online), Projekt (Symbian) and Mindmanager (desktop) then you will have my perfect project manager application.

Oh, and a desktop widget for easy viewing.

I don't ask for much obviously.
