Curious to know what everyone’s take is on FacileThings (those who use or have used it). I first heard about them last year, but it seems from my reading that they’ve been around quite awhile. I’ve only just started trying it out, and it looks like it really ties itself to the GTD methodology, which to me is good.
Things that throw me off, though:
Desktop is web-based only; there’s no client app. I guess you could use a wrapper, but I’m not in love with that solution.
Since desktop is web-based, there’s no option for quick capture, like in OmniFocus (also no quick capture on mobile, like OmniFocus has). If I made the switch, I’d miss that. Granted, a lot of apps don’t have this, but it’s helped me greatly in getting stuff into my system as opposed to going to my browser, finding the FacileThings tab, possibly having to navigate to “Capture” specifically, and forgetting what I was thinking about as a begin to type.
I noticed that you have to move tasks out of the Inbox before you can mark them as Done. I’m on the fence about this, because I can see it being kind of a pain to process and complete quick stuff, but on the other hand, maybe it’s a good thing that forces you to process items properly and not use your Inbox to actually work tasks, which I tend to do a lot.
Anyone tried it and have good/bad experiences to share? @DavidGentile I see that you’ve used it – I’d be interested in hearing about your experience.
