Powerful To Do app gets better with age
Software is personal and when an app is right for you, its impact on your working life -- or even just your life -- can be extraordinary. You don't get that impact very often, though, and unfortunately even when you do, it doesn't tend to last. I've had moments of it with Apple Maps, but my enjoyment of that has grown hand in hand with annoyances. I got quite a bit of it with Evernote, and that is now a staple of my every working day, but somehow it's become too familiar, I no longer see what was so special. You know where this is going, though. It's going to the point where I enthuse at you about OmniFocus.
First-class drawing tool for people who aren't first-class artists
Admit it: whether you're in the market for a drawing application or not, you're reading this in part because you hope to find out what a graffle is, and why you might one to be omni. We can't help you with the word, but we can say that OmniGraffle 6 for Mac is a superb tool for creating presentation graphics, design wireframes, and really just anything that you can draw more easily than you can write.
Outlining so good it'll convert the most die-hard anti-planner
If you're a writer or do any kind of long and complex work, then you're typically either a planner, or you're not. You work out every detail of what you're going to do, or you do everything by the seat of your pants. Traditionally, the only difference between the two that mattered was that planners find it easier to get paid, because they can show what they're going to end up with. Otherwise, it was down to you which sort you were, and not even raging arguments would change a "pantser" into a "planner." So as an outlining and planning tool, OmniOutliner is clearly for the planner type of person -- but it is actually so good that even the aforementioned "pantsers" rel='nofollow' should give it a go as well.
