I really cannot say how much this app has changed my productivity. It is fabulous! It is open on my desktop all the time. I love that new actions are so easy to enter and that I can easily add Mail.app messages as actions. Having sub-projects is also great and the ability to “skin” the interface rocks. I've also got the iPhone app and refer to it often when I'm away from my Mac.

I've tried all the other GTD apps for Mac and OF beats them all hands down!

I switched back from Things recently. I started back to school and Things was just becoming a hassle to maintain when using Things Touch. Webdav syncing to Fastmail between OmniFocus Mac and OmniFocus Touch is a killer feature for me. Oh, and the fact that I can have repeating actions in Projects is also a necessity for me and Things doesn't allow this. I don't understand the comments about the "complicated interface" though or how complicated OmniFocus is. It's only as complicated as you need it to be. I never even use the Inspector. I just turned on the columns I need in the main window.

Very complicated interface... Too many options! I feel like a computer when it says "Add Action". But I do like the "Check for updates" and sync feature... Things.app is better for my situation. An inspector for your todos! I don't even want to look at OmniFocus Pro, I would be drowning in options and click thingys and push this and... I might as well use a paper and a pen!

It's still the Daddy and continues to improve. I tried Things for 9 months and have looked at THe Hit List but this app just has so much more about it.

one of my favorite apps, ever. keeps my life in order, especially when synched with my iphone. extremely customizable and thought-out - i'd fall apart if it wasn't for this application.

Omnifocus has changed my life. Well GTD has. Omnifocus is worth the effort, but you need to know about GTD. I loved midnight beep's Inbox, as it was curiously different, and an attractive looking app. However Omnifocus allows me to sync with 2 macs, and my iphone which actually is useful, not just a gimmick.

Omnifocus is simplicity, doesn't crash, very reliable (unlike bloody MS Office 2008.....don't go there...),

I think the whole problem with GTD apps is that you need to embrace GTD, before an app that supports it is of any use to you.

I had been looking for an app to allow me juggle my different projects and get some time back for life balance.
I have switched to OF after trying kinkless and iGTD and found it to be the best GTD implementation so far, if a bit overloaded with features. Works very stable, syncs nicely with different iCal calendars. Handles contexts and gives you the ability to map roles to folders.
Very handy app, though not cheap.

I didn't find Omnifocus to be compelling software. I use a mac at work and home, and have an iphone, and OF does not support my needs. It's a little slow and database-y. During the long beta, it seemed like there were too many design issues surfacing. I'm using Remember the Milk now.

Been using OmniFocus for about 2 month and I'm done with it. Annoying as hell app. Never defaults to the view that I was in previously. Perspectives is a a confusing mess. No changing font sizes.

The only good part was the quick entry. But why is there no associated quick view? Just tell me whats up next, with a system wide shortcut.

I dunno... maybe 2.0 will bring me back. But using omnifocus for GTD is much much more trouble than its worth.
