Looks like I'm done with Things. What next?
I have been using Things for a while, basically since the beta prior to the 2.0 release.
It's worked well, with fast syncing, and I had found a simple implementation that
was very vanilla and very fast. Last night I was having a problem with the clipping
feature on my Mac Book Air, and decided to re-install and restore from the cloud.
I know what to do, I've done it before, but this time... something is corrupted, and
nothing will sync to the cloud database anymore. I guess I will turn in a trouble
ticket, but I realize now I was playing with fire, and probably will not return to Things.
I will have no trouble recreating my lists, but still it's very annoying.
I know how backups work with Omnifocus and Toodledo, and I guess
I will look into backups with Reminders too. Any other thoughts?
Sound like you want simple but attractive...
Maybe Reminders is worth looking at but if you look at reminders you may also want to give Wunderlist a shot. If you think OF is slow at syncing then don't try Evernote as it is the slowest at syncing.
Regarding web based apps I have always found I tinkered too much with Toodledo. If you liked Things except for the recent problem then try Nirvana, which is basically a web-based Things clone. I believe MarkDillon uses that.
