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

OmniFocus

OmniFocus is good for "power users" who favor a system that's fast over one that's pretty. It has a little bit of a learning curve, so it's probably overkill for simple task management. However, if you're willing to invest the time in learning OmniFocus and customizing it to suit your needs, it works quite well. I'd especially recommend it for someone who struggles with losing track of ideas and requests, and needs a good system for adding items at one point and then filing later on.

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

  • I'd like to see more customization options for keyboard navigation. There are two preconfigured sets of settings, but no option to modify.
  • Sometimes synchronization between desktop and mobile doesn't push, and I need to manually refresh.
  • Attachment support is clunky.

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.

  • Save times, probably 15-20 minutes a day of organizing my work.
  • Helps me avoid missing projects I may have overlooked.
  • Reminds me to stay on track of projects that have stalled.
