I've been running Omnifocus since January 2010 and I only just now feel that I am really starting to use the power of the program. It is very powerful and while simple to get going on initially gan take a long time to really start to use all the built in features and tricks.

There is an "Implementing the GTD Methodology with Omnifocus" PDF I have that I think I got either from Omni or from David Co. It's good for getting you going.
I also got the book "Creating Flow with Omnifocus" by Kourosh Dini and it's quite useful for taking you that next step up. My first time reading it I was not prepared to use all the tools in it but I'm about to review that book and see what new stuff I can learn.
The Omni forums are also helpful but for me initially I didn't understand the Omnifocus terminology and so I got less out of it than I was hoping. I learn a lot more there now that I've been using the program for a long time.
Also setting up sync is easy and I now sync my OF system to my iPhone and iPad using my own sync server flawlessly.
