I think that what all OF users can attest to however much they dislike the interface or have needs that are not addressed (tags, etc.) is that it is the most solid piece of GTD software out there in terms of data safety.
Two possible ways of getting your data lost as a result of sync:
1. Items deleted directly during sync.
2. Or you can lose your data afterwards as a result of mess, non-synced items (such scenarios are multiple according to issues reported in Sync forum).

It would be great to have a sync or web facility (perhaps like toodledo?) that can be accessed via the web.

I doubt it'll be too long before someone does it, but I do hope it's Omni.

Blackberry integration with Mac OS is rapidly improving, especially with the release of v5. Omni may lose customers if they wait too long to implement something. I do believe that Blackberries are still the most used business phones.

Many thanks for a great programme though, I really love omnifocus!
Check out the Rexwireless app, ToDoMatrix. It works on both iPhone and Blackberry (though only one device at a time per account) and has a web-based desktop version. I used ToDoMatrix on BB and went to iPhone and used Omnifocus (and it's outstanding desktop version). I Beta tested ToDoMatrix and ended up purchasing it and running the full version on iPhone. It has a "Super-Snooze" function that nothing else can touch. Still, Omnifocus won me over with the desktop version which is flawless and beats out the clunky online desktop version of ToDoMatrix. I stuck with Omni until I went back to Blackberry as the preferred business smartphone. Back with ToDoMatrix and landed here now when visiting in hopes Omnigroup had done something for the Blackberry. ToDoMatrix will not disappoint until, if ever, Omnigroup does something for the BB.

I used Todomatrix extensively from 2005-2009 on my blackberry as well and can vouch that's it's an amazing app . The snooze function , they keyboard shortcuts on the blackberry , injecting sms, emails , calendar entries , phone entries directly with a single command without copy paste was a life saver , they have a huge following and decently priced. During my whole tenure , i NEVER lost my data as well .DID I MENTION 3 REMINDERS PER TASK ?

BUT

Their online web app truly TRULY suck , they haven't updated the version since, you would see my post on their forum with the same nick , and we kept asking then them when the version 2.0 will come out , it never did , it's quite difficult to sync the folder / project structure into outlook / mac both as well.

ALTHOUGH
they have their own weekly review system on the device itself , it's nowhere near as powerful as the desktop version of omni. I personally could never see the bigger picture (maybe I was staring at a smaller screen hahaha)


I would recommend it to people who travel a lot , are hardly near a a desktop or who would want a complete system which doesn't require any desktop usage (heck rexwireless even advertise that as a feature) , their teamtodomatrix is amazing as well , you can assign tasks to team members ,along with reminders , everything syncs on the fly.
