I’ve been drinking the OmniFocus Kool-Aid since it was in Alpha. That application has become such a part of my daily routine that losing it would have a similar emotional reaction on me to burning a 3-year old’s favorite blanky in front of him. Nevertheless, I’ve been hearing a lot of positive things about the new kid on the block, Things. Several readers have happily switched over to Things saying it is not as complicated as OmniFocus. I use the hell out of OmniFocus so I’m not sure I could give up those advanced features. Nevertheless, for those interested, there is an excellent review of Things right here. Thanks to reader Landya for the link.

    Hey Dave!

    My 2 cents — I feel like I’ve tried all the GTD apps that have ever come out (up to and including Omnifocus), but Things has been it for me for a while. I’ve been using the beta since it came out and pounced on the iPhone app when they released it and I still love it.

    I’d guess there are people out there who might prefer the more thorough Omnifocus, but I like Things’s simplicity of use & interface and underlying power (should one choose too dig in further and be a Things ninja).

    For folks who struggle with GTD and fall off the wagon a lot (like me), I think Things is a great app to keep in the productivity arsenal.
