About OmniFocus

Everyone needs tools and techniques for staying atop of tasks. In a crowded and diverse field of possibilities, OmniFocus is an appealing option if you’re amenable to invest some time figuring how it works.

  • I researched and tried just about every task management app there is. This was the only one for OS X / iOS that fit all of my needs. I have become extremely dependent on it. I probably only use approx 25% of its functionality, but that's plenty for me. The biggest pro for me is the ability to forward emails to the app.

    Pros : Ability to email tasks to the app and have them show up in your task inbox, Multiple fields for prioritization/contexts/filtering, ability to create custom views (called perspectives)

    Cons : They really, really need a way to prioritize via drag and drop. That's the only con, but it's a huge one

  • The new interface makes OmniFocus easier to understand and master, and the price is excellent.

  • OmniFocus Pro 2.0.2 is at the top of its class. Unless you’ve really got to have that AppleScript support, the basic version is sure to serve you well. If $40 still seems a bit dear for a task manager, download the trial version. You’ll find that the design, capabilities, and documentation make it a very good value.

    Emptying your mind into your task manager should be fast and efficient. OmniFocus is both.

    Pros :

    • Supports attachments. Does a project entail using images, audio or PDFs? OmniFocus handles them all, both on iOS and Mac. This is a big one for me.
    • Lets you quickly convert actions into Projects by dragging them into the library.
    • You can hide projects to reduce distractions. In the same vein, toggling the Focus button makes it easier to focus on the task at hand.
    • I like these two features, as I sometimes find an extensive list of tasks visually overwhelming.
    • Email Actions. This especially handy — in theory. It involves sending an email to send-to-omnifocus@omnigroup.com and getting a reply. In it, there’s a clickable link that lets you add that action to the OmniFocus inbox. But I think an Evernote-inspired solution would be much easier.
    • For example, adding an "@’ followed by a project name to the subject line could add the task to that project. Or you could leave it blank for the duty to be sent straight to the OmniFocus inbox.
    • OmniFocus’ current solution strikes me as cumbersome. The Due perspective makes it easy to see which tasks are due soon (or for that matter, overdue).
    • On the iPhone and iPad apps, you can send tasks to the OmniFocus inbox from other apps like Safari and Twitterlator.
    • This is similar to Quick Entry, which Things does not have to their iOS apps. Location-based alerts and calendar integration.

    Cons :

    • A task management tool should excel, not crack when the going gets busy.
    • What I’ve come to realise is that if your task management system doesn’t seem like overkill when you are not overly busy, then you are going to break it when things get very busy. That's what sometimes happens with Omnifocus.
    • If you are practising every part of the task management system when things are light, then problems will arise when things get busy.
    • It’s not that OmniFocus was overkill for me, it’s that it was too rigid. That rigidity is fabulous when I am suffering decision fatigue from the amount of work I have, but it is a burden when I am not suffering that fatigue.
    • The power sits at the top, and you have to work to make the app simple.

    If you want to follow David Allen's GTD method, OmniFocus is the best application. With free cloud sync to the iOS apps, it works everywhere

    Pros : Reliable and flexible

    Cons : It's a little expensive compared to other options, but it works awesome.
