OK, so most people know that I am a HUGE Omnifocus user on Mac, iPhone and iPad. It has been my go to app of choice for the last year. However, what you didn’t know was that I used to date (scratch) depend on an earlier app called Things. We were in love together and I purchased all their apps (iPhone, iPad, Mac), and I was happy.
After task-management apps started switching to the cloud, Things let go of itself and got too comfortable (like wearing sweatpant around the house) and I broke up with it. I became promiscuous and tried several other solutions (Wunderlist, the Hit List, Remember The Milk, Todo, etc). I thought I was living the life, but I would come home tired, and exhausted after trying so many different apps that I would have a hard time remembering their names.
What happened next is that a lot of these productivity apps have improved tremendously and their cloud sync solutions are all comparable. And being the productivity nut that I am, I have spent lots of time, money and iPhone space trying to decide which solution is best for me.
This morning I woke up in a cold sweat after dreaming I had a PTD (productivity transmitted disease). Soon after, I went to my iPhone and decided to delete all the apps I have been trying.
At this rate, I have committed to stop testing new task management apps and settle down with one app. I think I’m ready for the big decision and since Things 2.0 makes it very compelling, I have decided to go back to it. I know it took you 20 months to offer cloud sync, but I’ve missed you. You are pretty, dependable and you make me feel good about myself. It’s true what they say, “if you love someone (or something), you have to let it go. If it comes back, it was meant to be”. I think this is love!
Wish me luck! I am committed to Things (I put it on my iPhone dock – which is like putting a ring on it). Till death do us
