I have several task apps on my iPhone and iPad. These GTD or ToDo apps help me accomplish life. I have narrowed my use down to 1.5 of them.Â OmniFocus and Reminders.
OmnifocusÂ is powerful, if you own the iPad and the Mac version you have an outstanding one two punch. It has a higher price tag but if you are looking for a hard-core GTD app this may be your one stop app. Â This is my “.5″ app. Â I use it but it is a little more detailed that I am conditioned to use. Â If I take “tasks” to the next level this is the app I will leave all others for. Â Pricy, but I am glad I own it.
I also haveÂ Action Method,Â Toodledo, andÂ Clear. Â While cool, visual pleasing (especiallyÂ Clear), and easy to use I haveÂ abandonedÂ these apps for the one I use nearly everyday…Reminders! Â Yes, theÂ Reminders app that is built into my iPhone. If youâ€™re looking for something that gives you a GTD system, or you require separate contexts and areas of responsibility and tagging, your main needs are going to be better served by an app like OmniFocus.Â I use Reminders because it is super easy on the fly and I am looking for an app to tell me to “buy milk” and “Pay bills.” Â I use it to remind me of something on a specific day but I can do that in any calendar app, what I LOVE about it is the location-based reminders. I just click over to Siri and say, “Remind me to buy milk when I leave work.” Â Milk is the last thing on my mind at work but when I pull away from the office my iPhone reminds me to “buy milk”…SO COOL! Â (Side note: OmniFocus supports location-based remindersÂ andÂ can import all the “Reminders” you have entered). Â If you have not triedÂ location-based reminders give it a shot.
