Any recommendations for a good tasklist program?
They both do the job and they both have trials. Good luck.
I've tested both, and prefer Things.
Omnifocus seems to work great within the context of the GTD system. Things seems to work well with or without the GTD system.
I use Things, but that's just me. If you don't have to have iPhone/iPod touch sync, check out The Hit List.
Since I moved to a Mac in September, I have struggled with the best way to replace my prior OneNote/Outlook-intensive PC workflow. It's been a long process
When it came to task management, I tried a lot of different trial software and ultimately drilled it down to Things & OmniFocus. I assumed OmniFocus would be a better fit for me, but in the end I chose Things. Though I am attracted to the strict GTD orientation of OmniFocus, when I tried to adapt that structure to how I work, it just didn't blend. At the end of the day, despite trying to be more GTD, I am a hybrid GTD/Franklin Covey type and Things works better for the way I work.
There is a really good (IMO) summary of the global differences between the two at http://mynameistaken.com/untitled-5494. Scroll down to the comment by SilverSkull (the first one).
At the end of the day, download the trials and see what works best for you.
