OmniFocus 2 for iPhone
By The Omni Group
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Thank you for your interest in OmniFocus 2! We encourage anyone considering OmniFocus to purchase our universal app rather than this iPhone-only app. The universal app adds new features and is designed for all iOS devices: iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch.
The universal app is the same price as this iPhone-only app, but it’s a better deal.
This app is still in the App Store so we can continue to offer updates to our existing customers, and so they can use Complete My Bundle to switch to the universal app without having to pay full price.
If you're a new customer considering OmniFocus, we encourage you to follow the Related Apps links to our universal OmniFocus 2 app (the one with a black checkmark on the icon, rather than this one with the white checkmark).
If you've been using OmniFocus 2 for iPhone and would like to start using OmniFocus on your Apple Watch or iPad, you can use Complete My Bundle with the OmniFocus Universal Bundle to get full credit for your existing investment in OmniFocus. (If you previously purchased OmniFocus 2 for iPad, you don't even need to Complete My Bundle! Check your Purchased apps: the universal update is free.)
If you own this app and don’t need the universal app, you’ll still get major free updates: features such as Dark Mode, Swipe to Flag, and Push-Triggered Syncing are on the way. Stay tuned!
If you have any feedback or questions, we’d love to hear from you! The Omni Group offers free support: you can reach us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at 1-800-315-6664 or +1-206-523-4152, or on twitter at @omnifocus.
What's New in Version 2.5.3
### iPhone customers please note: If you've been using OmniFocus 2 for iPhone and would like to also start using OmniFocus on your Apple Watch or iPad, you can use Complete My Bundle with the OmniFocus Universal Bundle to get full credit for your existing investment in OmniFocus. ###
OmniFocus for iPhone 2.5.3 contains bug fixes:
• Location Alerts — Fixed a problem with “(null)” notifications for geofenced contexts.
Good, but expensive
This whole situation is reminiscent of the Clear/Clear+ rollout debacle, except this'll cost you more.
I would recommend Omnifocus to anyone in need of a robust task manager who is also willing to burn an inordinate amount of money to get into their ecosystem. It will run you $80-$160, depending on whether or not you opt to unlock additional features via an in-app purchase (they even charge another $5 if you want their separate app for custom quick entry on Mac).
If you're on the outside and still trying to decide which productivity apps to go with, I recommend that you steer clear of Omnifocus. It will end up costing you a lot initially and in the long-run. OmniGroup is not one of those developers that really cares about providing value for your dollar.
On the other hand, if you've got and will continue to have a lot of expendable income for a productivity app, this may be the app for you. Omnifocus has a good deal of features to organize your tasks by context, project, etc.
That said, the I find myself having to sync manually on the Mac and iPhone app. The omnisync server just doesn't propagate your updates quickly on its own. iCloud sync would be a lot faster, but they don't use it because they're data is 'too complex.'
Bad move by Omni Group… again.
I have been a loyal Omnifocus user since the beginning. I have bought each update for my Macbook and my iPhone. Now that you have added “universal support” to only the old iPad version of the app, I have decided to find another solution for my GTD needs. This is a poor customer service model. I have ordered my Apple Watch, and was looking forward to being able to use OmniFocus when it arrives. I couldn’t be more disappointed in you for trying to force your loyal users into buying ANOTHER version of the app, yet again.
I am DONE with Omni Group! There are other option out there that care about their customers and not just their bottom line.
yet another upgrade cost
I love Omnifocus and use it every day. It's a great system and I'm leaving my previous review up below.
But it's frustrating to see further updates added to the app that require me to spend an additional $40 on top of the $20 I originally paid ($20 to "complete my bundle" to get "Omnifocus for iOS" and then *another* $20 for a "pro upgrade"). Basically I feel like I'm getting soaked. I don't have an iPad and just want to see improvements to the iPhone app.
-- previous review --
This is a perfect companion to the Mac version. It's not a "to do list" app, it's a complete personal project management system.
You can make to-do lists inside it to be sure, but it's a lot more than that. Think of it as a "list of lists", with very powerful organization and review features built in.
