Is the OmniFocus app worth the money?

According to OmniFocus, their to-do list software works like a “second brain.” Unlike most brains, however, OmniFocus doesn’t get distracted or need breaks. It is also only available through Apple. Designed to work with macOS and iOS, the OmniFocus app uses services like Siri for hands-free tasks and integrates with your pre-existing notifications. According to Jonathan Sorum via Gizmodo, OmniFocus is “the only reason why” [he] can’t abandon iOS and move to Android.”

The app offers weekly reviews so professionals can review upcoming or pending items, even those “someday, maybe” goals that may not be the first priority. OmniFocus also allows users to create distinctive categories – “work” and “personal”, for example – and assign projects within those categories. For each action, you can assign tags such as location, people, and even energy level.

For the many organizational features it offers, the OmniFocus app doesn’t come without a price. A subscription costs $9.99 per month, according to PC Magazine. Customers also have the option to purchase the app for a one-time fee – $49.99 for the standard Mac or iOS app and $99.98 for a combination. For some, the price is unreasonable. According to an App Store reviewer, “I understand why they need a subscription model to stay in business, but I think $4.99 would be a much more reasonable price for what is essentially a reminder app (albeit [an] great memories app).”
