    Well now I feel like I’m in good company. Eight months ago I purchased a MacBook just so I could use OmniFocus (and OmniOutliner) at work. While it was quite an investment, it was well worth it. OmniFocus is the best GTD available! John

    The problem with GTD is that it may be the way people people think about tasks, but it isn’t necessarily the way people want to look at tasks. It does not offer a lot of flexibility. The bigger problem is that it’s the latest fad in personal organizers so everyone is adapting their software to it. You can’t get away from it.

    On iPhone I have tried Things, ToDo and a couple of others. I finally settled on Task PRO, because it has a bit more of a freeform approach than any of the others.

    One thing I like about OmniFocus Desktop that is MISSING from EVERY iPhone app, including the iPhone version of OmniFocus is to be able to look at all categories expanded on a single plane. I really need that single plane view, because that’s how I think about orgnization – the big picture first.
