Figured it out. I didn't see "In Inbox and:" at the top of the section dropdown. To get the functionality I want ("All starred") you need to choose "more options" and then click "starred". Definitely confusing though, both items are labeled "starred" yet they are not the same.

The easiest way would be to create tags for your contexts (e.g. @Home, @Work, etc.). This, in turn, requires that each individual action is a separate note.

If Evernote isn't easily GTD-able, don't try and force it. You'll spend more time adapting your system rather than actually using it. The important thing is to find something that works for you.

For GTD, have you looked at ActiveInbox yet? I used to use it when it was called GTDInbox or some such. It is not bad, though if you have large volume of emails, your mind just keep getting pulled aside by that magic Inbox (6) sign. Gmail tasks I do not think are particularly useful for GTD, though you could always have them as Next Actions. I use Calendar ...

Yes there are many online options (see other answers). It is matter of personal taste and match which one would suit the best. To answer your question 'do you use a web app for GTD' - not any more. I used to use Remember the Milk with Gears, but for over a year, what works best for me is combination of Things on MBPro with Things on iPad/iPhone, supported ...
