A while back I posted about trying the OmniFocus ‘task management’ software which implements Getting Things Done type lists. As I said, it’s not that I haven’t tasks to do, and the GTD idea really does work. But, having played about a bit with it, I reckoned my life isn’t so cluttered that carrying on using NoteBook and iCal wouldn’t work well enough for me.
I’ve not changed my mind about Omnifocus. But now I’ve just discovered an alternative, lighter weight, more free-form task management OS X application simply called Things. Still in beta and free, but very well regarded (for a tour, see here): very clean and easy to learn, and even easier to use. I’m a convert. Well worth checking out.
