Todoist, seriously?!

I have a serious problem. I worked in Todoist a lot last night 😱.

At work I use a PC and that obvious makes todoist useful. I played with the web version of OF and at least now it’s just not good.

Thinking maybe the web app first nature of todoist may win out. I wish Things would offer a web app. They seem pretty against it though.

I know @culturedcode is doing it at some point, but the inability to complete a repeating task early really prevents me from sticking with Things 3. Podcast Ep 2 “Task Managers”

I discuss Things, Omnifocus, and Todoist Podcast Ep 1 “Everything buckets”

Trying this again…

Somewhat Off Color Task Manager Joke

Things 3 is the person you meet at the bar who can be sexy and thrilling, but typically leaves you wanting more in the end.

By contrast, OmniFocus is the person you met in line at the grocery store who turns out to be super smart and funny. You can introduce them to your family and you end up living happily ever after.

I realize I’m a little weird with my task managers…

10 years of Software

I know it’s not en vogue right now, but I started using @Evernote in August of 2008. I’m still using it today.

Trying to think of other software I’ve used a similar length of time and the only thing that comes to mind is OmniFocus. I first purchased it with my first iPhone which was the iPhone 3G. This quickly led me to buying it for my Mac and a few years later on my iPad.

What software are you using from 10+ years ago?

Would love if you could tag folders in @Omni’s @omnifocus

Filter Out a specific Tag in Things 3

This tip (if you could call it that) only works well if you don’t have that many Areas and if you aren’t changing Areas around that often…

my Areas

So basically, I tag the Work Area as “Work”, and all other Areas in addition to whatever else I want to tag them, also get the tag “Not Work”. This allows me to easily filter by Work and Not Work .

Remember, if you tag an Area, then all items under that Area inherit the tag.

Until or unless Things 3 gets a more robust search and/or tag filtering system, this is what I have been doing.

Let me know if this helps anyone.

Does anyone want to be on my podcast and talk about task managers… because apparently I can’t write about anything else, lol ?

I really wish @Culturedcode would publish a roadmap for the year like @Omni does. I use both apps, but to be honest, I’m scared that Things 3 will languish the way Things 2 did. A roadmap for the year would make those fears go away.
