Shawn Blanc elaborating on an idea from Ian Hines:
OmniFocus Aid would be lightweight, easy to use, and built for the sole purpose of throwing tasks into your OmniFocus database when at your Mac.
I am plus one to that idea. I think for many people the cost of OmniFocus for the Mac is a huge amount of money to come up with. If you are just starting out with OmniFocus I recommend you purchase in this order:
- OmniFocus for iPad (if you have an iPad).
- OmniFocus for iPhone (if you don’t have an iPhone this would be your excuse to go get one).
- OmniFocus for Mac Trial.
The best version for organizing and reviewing your tasks is the iPad version, the iPhone version is a must have for on the go entry and the Mac version is a must have for anyone working on the Mac. I recommend getting the Mac version last — even though the trial is free — because this will give you an idea as to whether or not you actually need the Mac version. There is a large subset of people who will be just fine without the Mac version — personally I couldn’t live without all three.1
Ok I could live without all three, but I don’t know if I would ever be able to get out of bed. ↩
