Well, basically. I would rather have an OmniSomething do my reminders than Apple's, because Apple's idea of "usability" is bouncing dock icons, which are INCREDIBLY ANNOYING. (Seriously, if I met the person who thought that a constant erratic motion was a good idea, I might punch that person in the face -- and I'm very very close to a total pacifist otherwise.)
So, while I recognize that GTD itself may not use notifications, I would love to see them done competently and cleanly, and I figure the Omni people are my best bet. :)
I have watched OmniFocus for a while, all the time using iGTD. In general I like Omni interfaces better (I was an early tester of OmniPlan). I have not read GTD either, but I too need/want reminders. I am a consultant and have a number of tasks for a number of clients in projects all at the same time and I want to be able to set reminders to do certain things by a certain date. iGTD now has a growl integration that I will look into. Ideally, I would like to integrate with Ical because there is better hope of integration with iPhone (even though they do not have 'todo' lists). So my basic question is:
is there likely to be a way to cause the system to notify me in some way when I say a task is overdue?
