I too failed with iGTD. Things is simple and just plain works. The sync to iPhone (and iPhone app) really sold Things for me. Now I can maintain a synced todo list on my phone and laptop!

It is the best one ever!.... Great app!!!
Now with syncing

Such a great program. I use it daily. ONE THING though is it replaces links I paste into the Notes field of a next action with weird XML characters and Chinese/Japanese characters. I'm guessing it has something to do with escaped characters in the code, but it's quite annoying when I change computers and find that my links don't work. Other than that, great app and I plan to buy it when it gets to 1.0.

I have been an OmniFocus user since the beta days and cannot praise it highly enough. When I first tried Things (back when it was by invitation only) it certainly looked better but was, for me, too simplistic and lacked too many features I needed.

Recently I had another look at Things, which is now much more complete. I imported my most important data from OmniFocus and started using the two in tandem (better safe than sorry!) because I found that the flexibility offered by Things (especially the famous "magical tag bar") required a different approach. Having spent time getting to know the app and tweaking my tags, I now have Things tailored to my liking and much prefer its clean visual style, which I find combines perfectly with the many features that have been added during development and simplifies the task of collecting, sorting and acting on everything I need to do.

During the last few days I have been using Things exclusively and I think it is fair to say that it has become my "trusted system" for GTD. It is true that OmniFocus still offers some more features but Things wins in appearance and ease of use and certainly meets my needs. Furthermore, having seen the way that Cultured Code have developed Things up to now, I am sure that it will only keep getting better.

I too bought OmniFocus but have found it limited by its OmniOutliner roots and strict adherence to GTD canon. Things accepts that real people like to have priorities (not allowed in strict GTD), and the flexibility of the tagging system is soooo helpful. The developers say they will add subprojects and subareas, which will fix my one remaining major issue.

It's a wonderful application.
I one weekend my inbox is cleaned, mail.app, ical, and Things work together to simplify my life.

Now that Things had iCal sync (Leopard only) I can finally start to test against OmniFocus. I like them both but "there can be only one." God, I'm such a nerd... I like them both but OmniFocus can be a bit overwhelming. I actually like the interface though b/c I'm a huge fan of OmniOutliner. Things just seems a lot more intuitive for me to use.

Even though I bought Omni Focus, I switched to Things. It just works better for me. Visually it is more appealing and it has less buttons and views compared to OF. Simplicity is king.

I've used Things for a couple of weeks now and I planned some major things with it like immigrating to another country and getting a whole lot done for my business. I use it every day with pleasure.

Although I love just about anything OMNI, OF really wasn't working for me. Neither were any of the other 10 apps I tried. I was looking for something as easy as TaskPaper but something powerful like OF. Things is it. In my top three favourite apps on my Macbook Pro.

i've struggled with iGTD (overcomplicated, weird syncing), through OmniFocus (despite the "Omni" quality prefix is the app interface confusing and the price just too high) and ended here with Things being happy. Things has just the mac clean interface and simplicity, cruicial in GTD. during a busy day there is no time to eat and drink, not to study an overcomplicated app. thanks
