Editors' Review

+

OmniFocus is a high-powered, flexible, feature-filled task-management app that's based on the widely used Getting Things Done (GTD) productivity method, but it's designed to accommodate a variety of work styles. OmniFocus uses a GTD-esque approach ("Capture, Organize, and Do") to handle actions, projects, and contexts. You work in a relatively clean, two-pane interface, with folders and projects in the sidebar and grouped actions in the main outline (where you add, edit, and check off actions).

Within this interface, it's easy to set up versatile contexts for your actions, distinguish between sequential and parallel actions within a project, and drag and drop actions, projects, and contexts. The sidebar also contains the In-box, a "holding area" for incoming actions, and you can enter new actions here, or from anywhere using a system-wide shortcut. OmniFocus even helps you add actions in several other ways, including via e-mail. There are also lots of different ways to view your workspace, and an improved Perspectives menu lets you save the ones that you use the most (including a set of editable defaults for common Perspectives, like In-box and Flagged).

Overall, OmniFocus's many features and highly tweakable interface deliver a lot of horsepower, making it one of the best (and best documented) GTD applications available. All that functionality comes at a price, though--and there many cheaper options out there--but GTD devotees should definitely give OmniFocus a try.

"Somewhere in the middle"

December 01, 2012  |  By Lars_M

 |  Version: OmniFocus 1.10.4

Pros

Offers good GTD support and was one of the first on the market

Cons

I've been an OmniFocus user from the beginning. But it still lives with it's first hour limitations and design flaws. Most painfully with the limitation to one context per task. Some things simply have more than one context. If you have a task together with two colleagues, which context will you assign? This makes OmniFocus nice for my shopping list, but almost useless for my daily business and tasks for my team.

Since OmniFocus started several tools emerged that do this better and much easier. Organize:Pro from taskfabric and The Hit List from Potion Facroty are the logical consequence.

Summary

Was great once, but missed to resolve fundamental issues. Others moved ahead.
