OmniFocus is a great productivity app built on the basics of David Allen’s Getting Things Done system.

It caters to a different kind of productivity user than the previous GTD giveaway app, Midnight Inbox. OmniFocus uses a slightly simpler approach, but is just as capable of getting, and keeping, you organized.

We’ve managed to snag 5 licenses worth $400 to give away to five lucky MakeUseOf readers.


There are two main modes in which you can view your actions – Planning and Context. The first mode displays your actions grouped by Projects.

The second mode displays your actions grouped by Contexts.

You can also view actions according to when they are due, as well as viewing flagged actions only.

You can customize the way in which information appears on OmniFocus – from displaying Projects based on certain criteria, to the order in which items and actions appear.

Actions are colour coded depending on whether or not they have a due date, and whether or not they’re overdue. Adding a due date can be done by clicking on an action, and hitting the ‘Inspect’ button.

While you can manually add actions through the application, one of OmniFocus’ strongest features is the ability to automatically create actions through your Mac Mail app, by creating rules on how the emails are received.

The app is also capable of synchronizing with iCal.

OmniFocus makes sure that you won’t lose any of your information, by automatically backing up your tasks to a folder on your Mac, either once or twice a day, as well as whenever you quit the program. Not only does OmniFocus perform automatic backups, it can also be synced using MobileMe, Bonjour, an external disk, a WebDAV server, and of course it syncs with the iPhone version of the app.

If you’re looking for an easy-to-use GTD application, OminFocus possesses all the important elements that David Allen outlines. Paired together with its iPhone app, and iCal synchronization, OmniFocus is one of the most well rounded GTD options for Mac users today.

Try it out now. Download the unrestricted 14-day trial and get productive.
