Hey Ben,

do you still use JIRA for GTD? :)

I also thought about using JIRA for GTD, but I'm not sure if this will work well because there's no JIRA app for my mobile phone.

How do you quickly put your ideas into JIRA from your mobile phone? Can I send an email to JIRA and the text is automaticaly out into the Backlog or something else?

There should be a JIRA app for your phone. There is one for IOS and Android. 

Also, you can access JIRA via the mobile site, and yes you can convert Inbound emails to JIRA tickets. :)

I am using some of the GTD principles yes. However i have had to customise it a litttle bit given that the board i created is a team board, instead of an individual board.
