Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

OmniFocus is built for the user with a lot going on - consequently, it does a great job at organizing lots of things in a manageable workload. It's perfect for taking a project and breaking it down into small tasks for yourself or teams. Once you get past the learning curve, it's quick at adding new tasks. Overall, it's an excellent product.

OmniFocus is the most robust. Some criticize OmniFocus for focusing too much on task organization and not enough on task execution, and that may be valid depending on one's use-case. However, if you ever find things slipping through the cracks and unable to trust your system, give OmniFocus a try. Keep in mind there's a learning curve.

Part of O365 is the Tasks application, which is "free" with O365 and does a lot of essential task management. Yes, it's very basic. Yes, it's basically "To-do," but it works quite well. Omnigraffle does everything better, and more thoroughly, but at a higher initial cost. If your workplace provides O365 for "free," however, I would suggest starting with Tasks and moving to OmniFocus if/when you need more functionality.

I initially liked how OmniFocus was set up, but over time have gone back to a combination of Evernote and Todoist/Drafts for my daily organizing. This has been strictly from an ease of use and functionality perspective.

We have used Microsoft One Note and To Do as other ways of increasing organization across our company, however, we don't feel that those tools are appropriate for that use (in the instance of One Note) or as robust (in the instance of To-Do). Both are, however, easy to implement across platforms and work with both Windows and iOS making them more obvious alternatives to employees who crave the ability to use the app on their laptop or desktop.

While Asana and others are more conducive to groups, OmniFocus is the best stand-alone task manager in almost all aspects. The visual appearance, flexibility, ability to script, predefined views, reporting, and performance.

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.

The market is flooded with productivity apps; I have field-tested a large number of these, and continue to do so.
However, without fail, I always come back to OmniFocus - it outstrips the competition by far.
The sheer richness and flexibility of the product has no peer worthy of consideration in my eyes.
Key reasons for selecting OmniFocus versus the rest:
- Supports offline working
- Native applications across my devices
- Non-rigid design
- Constantly being updated by its author
- Very high quality support provided by vendor
- Supports full implementation of GTD

In a class by itself

The closest analog to OmniFocus is Todoist. OmniFocus, however, runs circles around Todoist and every other to-do list and reminder system. OmniFocus is not just best in class, it is in a class by itself.

I feel somewhat incompetent saying more about how powerful OmniFocus is. I know that there are others who have done far more with OmniFocus. I am quite comfortable using it, but want to learn more so that I can improve the usefulness of OmniFocus.

Most of the others are basic check lists. It is the context and perspectives of OmniFocus that has me using it.

Using it is not as easy as others, but not as complicated as some (I'm looking at you Project!).

The developers are also top notch. They don't release bad software, and while they don't update it to full versions often (V1, V2, V3?), that does mean you don't pay for upgrades often either. New features are added to the version you already have at a remarkable rate.

I selected Omnifocus, initially as it was Mac based and allowed me to keep on top of all my projects and tasks due to access on an iPhone and iPad. Previously I have used Microsoft Project, however I feel that Omnifocus is more powerful and easier to use.
