  • Best App for Handling a lot of Projects/Tasks

    By Edward Dansen
    I’ve spent quite a bit of time in recent years reading about and trying out to-do apps. Each one has strengths and weaknesses, and what might be the best app for one person, may not be the best for another. However, it seems to me that for anyone managing a large volume of projects and tasks, I don’t think Omnifocus can be beat. This is primarily because of its use of defer dates (allowing one to use due dates very sparingly), and its review function (allowing one to put projects or tasks on hold, but still have a systematic way of making sure you don’t let things fall through the cracks). To my knowledge, there aren’t any other apps out there that have either of these features. There’s been a lot of fanfare about Things 3 and it’s simplicity and UI. I’ve given it a try, but the simplicity also means that it can get very cluttered if you have a lot of projects. For me, Omnifocus strikes the perfect balance of offering complex project management options, while still allowing for a clean interface showing only what I want to see. Another very nice thing about Omnifocus is this app works just as well only using its most basic features. It can be as simple or complex as you’d like. As I’ve moved from being a student to an attorney over the past 10 years, I’ve moved from using the app for simple to-do lists to managing 100+ projects for work. This is a very well-designed app with incredibly reliable encrypted syncing, a responsive support team, and it always seems to be under active development and working to incorporate the most requested features from users. I’ve run my life with this app on iOS and Mac for quite awhile, and am very happy with it. I’m excited to see what Omnifocus 3 brings, especially with the much needed implementation of tags (instead of contexts), and hopefully some improvements to UI, which in my opinion is really the only place Things 3 has it beat for the time being. Thank you to all the people at Omnigroup for all their continued work on this great app.
  • Great!!!!

    By JVIngram
    Best time management tool I have found. Easy to use. I have ADHD and it has helped me stay focused and organized. I Purchased the pro version and it was the best money I believe I’ve ever spent for my ADHD. I have tried other time management and organizational apps and They don’t come close to being as good as this one. If you run into problems or have questions the support staff is great as well! I highly recommend giving it a try!
  • My memory bank

    By Coolcakephoto
    I’ve been using OmniFocus for 3 years now and it’s been a great tool to help me get things out of my head and into action. No more relying on my limited memory. I know it’s expensive but I think it’s worth every penny. It has saved me thousands of dollars in late fees. 😂 The most powerful feature is custom perspectives which filter out tasks and organizes them according to whichever criteria you need. So when I’m at my desk I have a list of tasks waiting already curated according to priority. When I’m in the lab, same thing, Sunday afternoon in my yard, 💥 BAM “gettin chit dun”. OF2 is a complete system for my brain 🧠 I can’t stress enough how great this app and its developers are.
  • Waiting for version 3

    By Hooman M.
    Nothing compares to omnifocus. Still the best...
  • Excellent customer service

    By Matth3ous
    Well worth the money. It basically runs my entire life. Due to a recent bug I was downgraded to the free version. The customer service was excellent and the CEO even talked to me on Twitter about my issues and customer service followed up via email to make sure I was ok. They're sending an update to the app soon.
  • Stopped using parts, headaches returned

    By Don A7
    It helped get my life in control, then I grew complacent and only used the contexts. Contexts are great, actually better than great, but I need help juggling everything else, too. Interested in the comments about Mac only, cannot use on Windows at work. That is why my iPad is always there. My professional book library is also not permitted on the work computer, although needed most days of the week. Be sure to clock out if doing anything personal. If that is not permitted, use the iPhone during a break. My last three managers, and multiple IT interactions, have been happy with doing it this way Only needed support once. Nicest support I have dealt with. Real people
  • Phenomenal

    By Comma Club
    Not only is the app a must have to fully utilize your “2nd brain” the support for the app is great as well. The email support team is very prompt and professional and truly look to help solve any issues you may encounter. I recommend this to anybody and have already had several personal friends of mine start utilizing this system. Thank you to the omnigroup for continuing to provide a great app and service
  • Single context limit is serious shortcoming

    By TType
    Omnifocus is a complex tool with many attributes. But until they implement multiple contexts, or tags, I do not recommend anyone start down the Omnifocus path. Also, WebDAV syncing can be a lot of work (if you want to keep your data on your server) with limited help from Omni. Mine took days to get back up and running.

  • Make it easier to navigate to and within projects/folders

    By CharlesEdwards_III
    The app is great at helping one implement a GTD workflow. There are some improvements to be made. * It should be easier to navigate through projects on iOS. For instance, if I have flagged a Project, then clicking on that project should also have a link to the action contents of the project. Once I click the link to go inside, there should show a link to take me back to flagged. * In general, if I jump to any folder or project, there should be a link to take me directly back to where I came from. Swiping ten times or tapping ten times to get back to the top level is not acceptable for a productivity app. Even doing it three time is a lot. * There should be a dynamic option for recently used items. Let’s say I was in a project and added ten tasks to it...except I didn’t because I accidentally clicked the Add to Inbox button. So now all ten tasks have been added to Inbox instead of the specific project I meant to put them in. Once I update one of those ten to the correct project, when I go to the next action item, the top of the project list or context list should have a recently used section. It should not reorder anything. I’m imagining a thin line that goes over your projects list that has those recently used. You could collapse/expand it with a little triangle arrow icon. Just the last 3 recently used projects or contexts should be on top. That way when I have to add ten actions to my “Zebra Makeover” project, I don’t have to scroll to the very bottom every single time to add those tasks. * Why is it so easy to accidentally add tasks to the Inbox from inside of the project? I said this a while ago in a previous review. The “Add to Inbox” button should be a colored icon so it is prominently displayed. That stops accidental use of it and helps to find it when needed; which is the intent of putting it in the bottom right corner at all times. * Batch edits. I should be able to select ten items at once and add them all to a project or context. I should be able to select ten projects and add them to a folder. Etc. Pause ten projects. Etc. If it can be done to one thing, it should be easy to do it to multiple things.
