We’re continuing our onslaught of major review updates this week with a big update to our review of the best GTD apps for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. We aren’t changing our pick away from Things 3, as its simple, clean design and ever-evolving array of features haven’t let us down. However, since our last review update, OmniFocus has seen some extensive updates in version 3.0.
Rose Orchard is an expert on OmniFocus 3.0 — not only is her use of OmniFocus far more extensive than anything the rest of the team could put together, she’s also written a book about using OmniFocus for getting things done. Thankfully, Rose put together this big update for our review, and she’s gone in depth on just about all of the major 3.0 feature updates.
Productivity and the Getting Things Done (GTD) methodology isn’t limited to the smartphone realm, but it’s certainly a playground for app developers to share their own interpretations of the system.

As a bonus, Things is lovingly designed with an easy to use, delightful user interface, as well as a genuine attempt by the developers to fully take advantage of the watchOS platform in almost every way possible.
Task management is a very personal thing, so while Things is our pick for the best Apple Watch task manager, it still may not be exactly right for you. To that end, we’ve included an excellent runner up in Todoist, as well as a few other close contenders that excel in specific areas.
With that said, let’s jump into Things for the Apple Watch and see what makes it special, and why it’s worth every penny.
Most of us have been inside an Apple store. We need a charger or we need to check out the latest thing. Maybe we need our phone fixed or our computer looked at.
Having worked there for five years, most people of the customers I interacted with didn’t take advantage of most of the services Apple offers. This is your quick and dirty guide to finding what your local Apple store has to offer, the questions you should ask, and how to get the quickest help you need.
Airmail for macOS has direct integration with many services like Dropbox, Calendar, and Reminders that can tie in to your email workflows. But, you need to configure these integrations before you can use them to your heart’s content. Rose shows us how to do just that in this week’s tip.
There are many apps that grace the Mac and iOS App Stores that simply don’t get enough attention or admiration. Sometimes an app is so good at what it does, it becomes the default app for the task and is rarely questioned. Sometimes a new app debuts in a given category and, while it shows promise, doesn’t quite live up to our pick for the best in that category.
Bonus! One more thing…
