Any.do

There is no desktop app for Any.do. This is the only con I can see now.

OmniFocus

1) Great for managing your work and personal activities.2) One of the best implementations of the Getting Things Done method.3) Not really suited for collaborative work management; OmniFocus is managed on a per-user basis so you can't share/assign tasks.

Pros

  • Free to start
  • Better task postpone options
  • Easy to use
Mohammed Anzil profile photo
  • Rich in functionality but flexible at the same time meaning that user adoption is rapid and friction-free; more exotic features and functions can be introduced over time as the user builds his/her familiarity with the product
  • Allows my users to follow their productivity method of choice (most of us are fans of David Allen's GTD method but OmniFocus isn't rigid or prescriptive in its implementation
  • Cross-device synchronisation means I can seamlessly switch from desktop to laptop to tablet to smartphone and have access to my data in real-time; this means I can always have access to the data no matter where I am or what I am doing

Cons

  • Need desktop apps
  • Integration with Evernote
  • Integration with Sunrise Calendar
Mohammed Anzil profile photo
  • Apple-device compatible only so Windows users can't use the product
  • No web-interface available to allow me access via a web browser
  • A few features not available on iOS implementation that are available on MacOS such as being able to set projects as auto-close on last task completion - not showstoppers but minor inconveniences

Alternatives Considered

Any.do is simple and easy to use. I'm huge fan of Wunderlist, but now a fan of Any.do too.

I have used Wunderlist and Trello but OmniFocus is my go to tool. Wunderlist is a bit too simple for my tastes; it's fine for things like shopping lists but wasn't well suited to more complex projects. And it takes time to use, since there are fewer keyboard shortcuts. Trello works well for simple projects that require team collaboration, but it's not well suited to task management. I actually use Trello and OmniFocus together, just for different purposes.

Return on Investment

  • Easy to use
  • Good customer support
  • Great to increase our productivity

  • By introducing OmniFocus into my business I have been able to implement standardised working practices across the team; it has made the adoption of the GTD method much easier for the employees who had never come across it before
  • The flexibility and richness of the application mean that all team members are constantly living with OmniFocus - we have virtually eradicated all other modes of activity and planning capture, so no bits of paper or post-it notes, no emails to self, no accumulation of files with crib notes, no illegible notes scribbled in books, etc. Everything is captured at source in OmniFocus. Project meetings with clients and internal team meetings are driven via OmniFocus so we always know "what's next"
  • As a team I've seen improvements in morale and attitude as OmniFocus has enabled them to cultivate the right habits around effective productivity; these improved working practices in the office via OmniFocus are now also being put in place at home for some of the employees giving them a greater sense of control and visibility in their professional and social lives
