    Thanks for the update!

    Unfortunately I’m not sure how good would OmniFocus would be for me. I’m quite hooked on using my Blackberry 8700 and that just doesn’t sync well with my mac. I first tried syncing my Blackberry 8700 to my Mac but I was quite disappointed by the beta version of PocketMac for Blackberry. Now they’re out of beta and I believe are offering the sync client for some $40 or so. Anyway so I then proceeded to sync my Bberry 8700 to Outlook (running that on a Virtual Windows via Parallels) as my GTD Setup. It’s been a couple of months and so far this is working quite well for me.

    Arif, PocketMac for BlackBerry is free. I use it to sync a 7250 with my Mac and it works without any issues.

    I finally gave up on kGTD syncking problems and lack of developement, but I am excited to see how good OmniFocus will be. In the meantime (and maybe longer) I am using iGTD http://bargiel.home.pl/iGTD/

    It’s very good to say the least. Very fast and has a lot of features, keyboard shortcuts, syncs fine to iCal, syncs via iSync and thus to my phone, uses .mac, Quicksilver… much more.

    Try it, it’s free and I feel free too — for the moment.
