Thank goodness I didn’t buy OmniFocus yet

In my previous post I briefly described all the GTD apps I have tried and why OmniFocus, although not perfect, was the best choice for my right now. I had decided the next time an update appeared (which I thought was likely to happen yesterday) I would pay up. Then yesterday, as I was looking over my RSS feeds, Daring Fireball mentions the Things beta is available. So I scoot over to the website and download it. And oh my goodness is it good.

Only 4 more days to make a decision on OmniFocus

I’ve been trialling the OmniFocus beta for a few weeks. If I buy it just now it will cost $40. However, the price goes up to $80 on Tuesday when it comes out of beta. I’m definitely not willing to pay $80 for a GTD app but $40 is reasonable. So I’ve only got 4 more days to decide if I’m going to buy OmniFocus or not.

There are a lot of other GTD apps out there just now and more in development. I want to be sure I’m putting my money into the right app for me. I’ve downloaded and tried loads of others (Midnight Inbox, iGTD, EasyTask Manager, Actiontastic, Ready-Set-Do! and Bento) as well as Backpack and Remember the Milk. More on these in future posts.

The Road to Organisation

This blog will track my path to a state of ultimate organisation (and therefore, calm)!

I recently discovered Getting Things Done by David Allen and I’ve started to implement some of his principles into my life. I haven’t actually finished the book yet (too busy, not organised enough!) but am pretty familiar with it all having read a fair bit online. I’ve been playing a lot (and wasting huge amounts of time, I may add) with a variety of OS X GTD apps. I intend to give my opinions on each of them in time. For now I’m using OmniFocus mostly. More on that in an upcoming post.

So yes, this is yet another GTD blog (plus my general musings) but you can never have too many, can you?
