Overall Satisfaction with OmniFocus

OmniFocus is the best individual task manager out there. However, it is NOT suitable for use across teams. It doesn't support multiple users, and it only runs on Apple hardware. While that makes it limited, and a poor choice for teams, it offers a more robust feature set than any other to-do style application.
  • It doesn't get bogged down or confusing, even with hundreds or thousands of tasks.
  • Custom perspectives are superior to competitors' "saved searches."
  • The mobile app is just OK, but there are several missing features, and some things require a lot of taps.
  • There's no support for teams.
  • The value is inestimable. I couldn't live without it.
  • OmniFocus is the only system that I can 100% trust, so it gives me peace of mind.
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.
OmniFocus has excellent user forums. They're active as well as mature, since the product has been around for years. I've never needed to actually contact customer support because OmniFocus is popular enough that I've always been able to find an answer in the forums, or in an article, or in a YouTube video.

If someone is in the Apple ecosystem, it's the best choice. Far beyond a simple task manager, OmniFocus is the only software I've found that can reliably track every aspect of one's life. If I want anything in my life to be different than it currently is, there's a place for it in OmniFocus.
