Overall Satisfaction with OmniFocus

OmniFocus is used as a task list and project management tool to help organize all sorts of projects. It is currently in use by our Marketing Department to manage content creation, daily, weekly, and quarterly tasks, as well as long term planning for more comprehensive projects that span multiple departments and business units.
  • Easy task list creation using keyboard shortcuts
  • Great at-a-glance look at weekly due dates
  • Tasks can be organized within projects
  • It would be great to see a dark mode in OmniFocus
  • Their upgrade strategy involves having to purchase new versions when they are released
  • It would be good to have a quarterly view of tasks and due dates.
  • OmniFocus helps us stay focused on what is most important.
  • OmniFocus helps us not to miss even smaller tasks, as it gives great visibility into everything due and upcoming.
  • OmniFocus ensures we meet deadlines.
I'm a big fan of OmniFocus for task management. It's my go-to task manager, and is very useful for those that have bought into the Mac and iOS ecosystem, as all my tasks quickly sync between my MacBook Air, iPhone, and iPad. Obviously this means it's not as good of a choice for web or Windows users.

OmniFocus uses their own server to sync, and although it works great and I haven't had any issues with it, it's strange that they choose not to use iCloud syncing.

Overall, I highly recommend OmniFocus for Mac/iOS users.
