Indispensable productivity software for busy professionals on Apple platforms

I use OmniFocus as a second brain, to implement the ideas encapsulated in Getting Things Done, Building a Second Brain, and The Productivity Habits. Without OmniFocus it would be much harder for me to manage a demanding day job, my family life, my freelance career, and my creative hobbies.

PROS

Omnifocus is an excellent task management system that integrates seamlessly with macOS. It is based on the Getting Things Done workflow, making it easy to capture tasks and process them effectively. This is a major strength of Omnifocus compared to other similar systems, and makes it an invaluable tool for staying organized and productive.

CONS

OmniFocus is a powerful task management tool, but it is falling behind with regards to integration with AI. It would benefit from bringing ideas from more advanced project management to the individual, such as load-balancing, to help users better manage their tasks. Additionally, any context awareness has to be manually set-up, which can be time consuming and tedious. It would be nice if it guided the user using AI/ML to help them better manage their tasks.

Reason for choosing OmniFocus

OmniFocus is Mac-native, which is important to me as I generally dislike web apps and Electron apps. It's carefully desigend and considered. And its out-of-the-box support for the Getting Things Done workflow is exemplary.

A well featured tool with a steep learning curve

Trying to juggle multiple roles at work with different projects and deadlines, OmniFocus helps with the defer dates, to not have something pop up until you have decided to work on it. So it is easier to avoid being overwhelmed. So long as you consistently use the system and review weekly.

PROS

When you are invested in the system and the GTD (Getting Things Done) Methodology, OmniFocus works quite well.

CONS

The learning curve! It takes a lot of time to internalize how OmniFocus works and the flow daily and weekly use.

Reason for choosing OmniFocus

OmniFocus is a professional project with consistent development behind it. Things development at the time appeared more sporadic.

Reasons for switching to OmniFocus

OmniFocus had enhanced functionality with the custom perspectives.

A more or less satisfactory experience with the software

As the title says, it was a more or less experience with the software, it could have been better but I think it was missing important points, we can understand that all software is not the same and that over time they improve their development and proposal towards the end client.

PROS

It had a well-developed priority system within the panel, I think it was the only and best strength that existed with this program, thanks to that the team became accustomed to developing tasks with a lot of balance, everyone in less than 1 week already knew how to organize their tasks. parties and be able to enter information about what they did and what they were missing regarding their software development task.

CONS

I had a very limited project review, it was difficult for us to enter several projects at the same time, I thought it was a more robust program with greater capacity, the individualization of each program could not be easily found and this, instead of saving time, set us back quite a bit. The login crashed very repeatedly during the day.

When you need it, you need it

As you can see, I really like Omnifocus. It helps keep me on track. When I'm doing GTD well and doing my Weekly Reviews (which Omnifocus supports very well) then I'm staying on track with my life. I'm a big fan.

PROS

I've used a lot of iOS and Mac task managers. Omnifocus is the best for me when life gets super busy. I love the automation and the project management templates. It makes it so easy to deal with recurring projects. The different perspectives let me see only what I need to see at any given time. It really is a joy to use once you get the hang of it. I have it on my Apple Watch, iPhone and Mac.

CONS

There is a learning curve, but don't let that stop you. Just because a task has a million fields you can you doesn't mean you have to use them. I would say just use the basic for a while and learn the more advanced features as you go. It's pricey but totally worth it.

Reason for choosing OmniFocus

I love Things but Omnifocus just offers more power and advanced features. If you can get away with using Things, it's a great looking and wonderful app.
