OmniFocus 2

The quintessential GTD app for all projects, big or small.

OmniFocus 2

Create new tasks anywhere

For those who want the Swiss Army knife of task managers.

If you want to be super productive, then you need OmniFocus 2. This powerful task manager app follows the Getting Things Done (GTD) system, where users create projects, custom perspectives, location-based reminders, delegate, and review all of their tasks. While OmniFocus 2 is known to have a steep learning curve and can be quite costly for the entire suite, it is a powerful and fairly customizable solution for those who want the best task management software their money can buy. It's also the best choice if you want to go with the traditional GTD system.

Why we love it

The complexity of the app may scare us at first, but it is one of the most flexible and customizable options out there. There are not many limits with OmniFocus 2, and while it can be expensive for all the apps, it's well worth the cost for productivity nuts like us.

Clear Todos

When you want a super simple list to keep track of things.

Clear Todos

Clear

For anyone who doesn't need a complex system for lists, reminders, and to-dos.

Clear is the new darling of task managers, and it’s easy to see why. Clear is one of the few apps that would not work in another operating system. It was clearly designed for iOS and is only usable with a touchscreen. Clear is entirely controlled by gestures, and it is undeniably fun to swipe, pinch, and pull to add, modify, and reorder tasks and lists. As a task manager, however, Clear lacks many features that have become standard even for free apps, such as due dates, notifications, alerts, or even syncing, and its beautiful user interface makes the faux pas of obscuring the status bar. Syncs with: nothing. Additional fees: none. Reminders/Siri: no.

Why we love it

Clear is beautiful and features intuitive gestures that make it super easy to create and manage lists.
