Shawn Blanc’s Review of OmniFocus 2 for Mac

At least go to it just to check out his spectrum of GTD tools graphic. It’s spot on.

I try not to get too attached to OmniFocus, but I get a little defensive when I read things like “OmniFocus is TOO COMPLICATED.” What’s ironic about this is that I’ve also talked with people who want OmniFocus to do even MORE, like be a CRM system.

Yes, use the tool that’s right for you. For me, it’s been OmniFocus ever since the beta for Mac about…wow, 8 years ago.

The new design will take some getting used to. I miss the check boxes. I think if you’re going to call something a flag you should make it look like a flag. But the core functionality is still there, and it’s faster – namely in switching perspectives and the Quick Open feature which gets you to your projects quicker than ever.
