I’ve now started to keep outline files of software head to head pros and cons list. For example, OmniFocus vs. Todoist, I have Pros, Cons, and a Dealbreaker section for each application in the OmniOutliner document. I fill it out so the next time I think about switching I can look back at the cons and check to see if a new version has fixed those cons and if not, I stick with the current app or look for a new one. I”m currently working on one for Dynalist vs. Workflowy for an online outlining software. So far it’s been helpful in determining Web Archives vs. PDFs in DEVONthink, OmniFocus vs. Todoist, Apollo vs. Antenna for iOS Reddit clients.
