A little “selfish” promotion, Nathan Snelgrove writing about [Begin](http://beginapp.co):

That’s the thing that surprised me the most about Begin when I was working with Kyle on it. Begin actually compliments OmniFocus really well in my workflow. Allowing me to plan projects and keep track of on-going and longterm items in OmniFocus, while I take care of the minutia of the day-to-day in Begin.

Also, and I can’t beat this drum loud enough, the Solarized Light theme is pure beauty (no, I didn’t design the theme):

> The Solarized Light and Solarized Dark themes are my favourite. They’re similar to the Light and Dark themes, but just different enough to appear more alive and lifelike. The Solarized Light theme looks very similar to paper, and it’s become the one I’ve been constantly using.

Absolutely *no* screenshot does Solarized light justice, you really need to see it in person — live on the app.
