I genuinely mean no offense, but we used a similar app in our software design class to demonstrate how not to build software. Hopefully the pending UI overhaul will provide some more value to users who've already paid the $49.

Not a "real" application.

This is a Filemaker database turned into a run-time application, hence the Windows / OS X functionality. As far as I can tell, there is no mobile version, which really negates any usefulness of this app.

Compared to other productivity apps (Omnifocus, Things, or the awesome TheHitList), this program is HORRIBLE!! The interface is extremely un-mac-like and stressed me out just looking at it.

The price is crazy, even at a discount. Look for The Hitlist (in Beta form, abandoned software for the most part, but fully functional, supremely awesome, and free since it's still in beta). Unfortunately, there's no mobile version of The Hitlist since it's been abandoned.

Yet another GTD based app. Why oh why? David Allen created a cult called GTD - based on false assumptions and dogmas that, because they're unattainable ideals, creates a movement of disciples, who are never fully "there" yet. Hence, still hooked, and on the lookout for the fix, because they feel they need a fix. They don't - they should just create a system that works for them, instead of trying to "do GTD" which is only good for making you a miserable robot.

Let's have some software that is NON-GTD that offers other solutions than GTD. Why are there zero Franklin/Covey based apps? What about some AutoFocus apps? Do-it-tomorrow apps? Apps for people with ADHD-issues?

It's all GTD, GTD, GTD. It is not the holy grail of productivity. that's just what David Allen made it seem like.

I only spent about 5 minutes playing with Life Manager Pro and then I zapped it.
Why?
The interface.
I was immediately reminded of bdContacts which I also rejected because of its interface.

My problem is that I expect GTD software to look like Things. By look like, I mean: the overall appearance, the icon, the subtle shading, the simplicity.

I expect calendar software to look like BusyCal.

Life Manager Pro might be a great product. I just can't get past the ugly look and feel.

Yeah, I'm really having trouble getting past the interface. I can deal with the plain look, but the controls move around from screen to screen, making me work harder to understand what is going on. This software seemed like a great idea, but the usability issues make this discouraging to learn.

You people are crazy! The interface is totally fine, for us less demanding people. It is clean and free from distraction, like any other mac program i have used for years. I appreciate all the hard work that goes into a program like this and look forward to trying out this product and hopefully implementing it into my daily life to add some relief from confusion that arises daily from misorganization. Keep up the good work Life Manager Pro team!

Completely disagree... Are you blind or are you the developper of this "software" ?
This "software" is a big filemaker form... Nothing more.

And no problem about the horrible icons...no problem about the incredible logicla of the buttons... once at the top, and once at the bottom.
Compare the omni software or the excellent the hit list and this big form.
No way for this form

Doesn't appear to integrate the contacts with Address Book, or the Calendar with iCal. Couldn't see any way to import/export contacts and calendar. Also no apparent support for repeating actions, and no iPhone app to sync with. I didn't give a rating in case I'm wrong on these points, but I downloaded and tried it, and couldn't see how to do any of the above.

I know it's got the whole vision and goals thing going for it, but without these basic functions it's hard to see it making any headway against OmniFocus, Things, THL, etc. Also they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but to this beholder this is one fugly application. Looks like a port from Windows and kind of like Oracle, with some funky icons.

I really mean no offense in what I am about to write:

For the life of me I cannot understand why anyone would write an application for the Mac in 2009 that is so extremely ugly. The color scheme is distracting beyond belief. Even for something that is written as a Filemaker app, this is just plain horrible. I cannot comment on the actual usefulness of the app simply because I could not get beyond the interface, much of which is simply unreadable because of the color scheme.

I'm not giving a rating on this, for there may in fact be some people out there who may find Life Manager Pro a useful product!

I didn't download this program to try exactly because of its 'face'. After switching to Mac, I became more esthetically demanding for programs. If to be more specific, I can say that Projector is a really awesome example of a nice looking program. It doesn't fit all of my needs to process and represent information but I just love using it for lot's of colors and well-planned comfortable interface. However, I will be happy to use Life Manager if it looks like typical mac applications: iTunes, Pages, Numbers etc.

p.s. don't perceive this comment as an ad for Projector, please. This is an attempt to give an objective feedback to the developer only.

Thank you.

Interesting. I chose OmniFocus over Projector because it's got a much nicer gui. Different strokes, I guess!

Of course, I meant OmniPlan, not OmniFocus (though I do have OF as well!)

Hi, this is Steve Williamson, developer of Life Manager Pro.

Thanks for this useful feedback. The colourful interface was decided at the development phase of the program after suggestions from beta testers.

After releasing the program there have been several criticisms of the interface, but some users like it.

After much thought, a decision has been made to completely redo the interface to make it more Mac like.

The update will also allow syncing with the Mac address book. This update has been finished but is being tested for bugs. It will be released in the New Year. Please download it then and hopefully you will see the program in a more favourable light.

There are plans to create an iphone app next year that will sync with Life Manager Pro.
