NEW 2-week free trial! OmniFocus Standard and Pro are now in-app purchases, with discounts for OmniFocus 1 and Legacy Support Edition customers. Download the app for details. OmniFocus for iOS brings the in-depth task management features of a desktop app to your fingertips. With flexible viewing options, location awareness, and on-the-fly task entry from just about anywhere, OmniFocus is the trusted system you need for managing everything in your busy life. Keep track of tasks by project, place, person, or date—with OmniFocus you’ll always have your important information at hand. Whether it’s a shopping list, agenda items to discuss at work, or chores to do at home, whatever you need to do is right there on your iPhone or iPad. OmniFocus' interface was designed from scratch for iOS and organized around your data—your stuff—to make it easier and more natural for you to quickly get ideas into and out of the app, whether you’re using Getting Things Done™ (GTD™) or any other productivity system. It's powerful enough to use on its own, and syncs through the cloud with your other devices running OmniFocus (also available for Mac). Syncs even happen when you’re not actively using OmniFocus, so that your information is ready when you are. STANDARD FEATURES (VIA IN-APP PURCHASE) • Reliable push sync using our free service or your own server. OmniFocus' sync format is encrypted so even if your server is compromised, your data is protected • A flexible hierarchy: keep all your to-dos in one list or use as many levels of Folders, Projects, Groups, and Actions as you need to stay organized • Assign contexts based on location, people, energy level—whatever you'd like to use to organize your to-dos • Plan your day’s errands by listing nearby location-based contexts or viewing them on a map • Today Widget shows you OmniFocus items due today right in Notification Center • Reminders Capture and OmniFocus Mail Drop for entering OmniFocus actions via Siri or services like IFTTT & Zapier via email • Interactive notifications for nearby and due items let you mark complete (or snooze) without even opening the app • Search shows results from the current view or your entire OmniFocus database • Add Photo and Audio attachments right on your device and view file attachments synced from other devices • Forecast row shows you how much is due in the next few days on your Home screen or sidebar; open the Forecast perspective to see your due items alongside events from your iOS Calendar • A dedicated Review perspective makes sure nothing falls through the cracks • View your most important items with a flick of the wrist using OmniFocus on Apple Watch. • Choose between light and dark color palettes, or have OmniFocus automatically adjust as background lighting shifts. • NEW App Lock keeps OmniFocus' interface hidden behind TouchID or a password. • NEW Support for TaskPaper Text and omnifocus:///add and /paste urls lets you automate complicated workflows using apps like Workflow. Starting from a solid, simple user experience, we added Pro features for customizing OmniFocus and making it even more powerful: PRO FEATURES (VIA IN-APP PURCHASE) • Customize the OmniFocus sidebar and Home screen just like you customize your iOS Device's Home screen. • Custom Perspectives: save and revisit custom views for specific tasks or situations: “Show me the chores I can do in five minutes” or “What do I need to follow up on with the people from the planning meeting?” • Display any perspective in Notification Center with the Today Extension Download OmniFocus now and start your free trial!

  • Nice, But Needs Simplified UI

    By The Builder....
    I really want to like this app because of its sheer customizability and syncing capabilities (which is the best in the industry); however, the interface has to be simplified greatly... Right now, Things 3 is blowing the competition away because of its very simplified interface and syncing capabilities (especially the rearranging of lists via drag and drop without making any additional taps); however, I believe that if OmniFocus begins to “focus” on simplifying the interface across all platforms while maintaining their strong functionality, they could become more appealing to more people...
  • Good, not great

    By Dean Bokhari
    I really enjoy the structure OmniFocus provides and how it’s in-line with GTD. But you guys really do need to step it up in the following areas: 1. SYNCING. It simply takes too long. Syncing should be swift and seem-less. Always. 2. NOTIFICATIONS. When I’m reminded of a project I’m working on, I should have more options within the banner notification. Right now, I can choose ‘Snooze’ or ‘Complete’... but what about deferring it until tomorrow? Or being reminded again in an hour? Both of the above are very basic features that should be included in every productivity app, free or paid. I’ve been using OmniFocus on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch for over two years now, and I have seen minimal improvements and updates. OmniGroup, I really hope this doesn’t fall on deaf ears, because I know I’m not the only one who’s got these issues. And I also know I’m not the only one who’d love to keep using this product, if only you’d bring it up to speed.
  • Closest to ideal I’ve used

    By Wolverineguy
    Omnifocus beats most other apps I’ve used and is almost perfect. Obviously, collaboration is a huge thing missing, but I also wish the interface was a bit easier to navigate. I’d like to be able to sort items within projects by due date within perspectives (and it’s possible that you can and I’m missing it, but it appears a bit random to me). I’m loving the Mac version: wish there was a bundle price for both the Mac and iOS versions.
  • Get ready to buy this twice

    By davdphotography
    You have to buy the iOS version separately from the Mac version. It’s not obvious before hand and you find out after the fact. It would be awesome if they just offered a subscription model and gave you access to both Mac and iOS. I’m moving over from Wunderlist and that was their business model. Even Evernote does a subscription. There is a learning curve but some cool features.
  • Free (limited) Trial

    By Buster Dog
    Promised a free two week trial. You must register an account to find out that the features are limited in trial mode. Nagging to upgrade began immediately. If I’m going to spend $60 to upgrade then I certainly want to do a hassle free evaluation. I just deleted the trial and will move on.
  • Excellent task app!

    By gorob
    I don't even have 100 tasks and the app start up is slow.
  • Awesome

    By richbajo
    I love Omnifocus! It’s a great looking app and so powerful. I probably just scratch the surface but it’s comforting to know that I can grow into more and more sophisticated workflows as needed. It’s really improved my life and lowered my stress levels. And let’s face it, purple is really the best color out there.
  • Missing Features

    By Gamma401
    I’ve decided to rewrite my original review because the first was written in a fit of frustration in regard to my expectations vs. reality. I appreciate Omnifocus and Omnigroup, I really do. But their update cycle is painfully slow and I’m bumping up against the edges of OF’s capability too often. I was content enough with these limitations, until Omnigroup promised me some major updates at the beginning of the year and now have failed to deliver or even adjust their statement so I could adjust my expectations. (Edit: I stand corrected!) Regardless of this, Omnifocus is a solid application and I’m continuing to develop better ways to deploy it and mold it to my needs. I understand Omnigroup has a few products to look after but, please, maybe just hire another developer or two?
  • All this app does is crash

    By CWS11
    Don’t waste your money. This app crashes every time it’s opened on my iPhone. It’s far too expensive of an app to have this kind of flaw.
  • Just keeps getting better

    By Chumbake
    This app is unbelievably helpful for me. I use it everyday. Even on my Watch. I love looking down and seeing my next action on my wrist. Thanks for making such a great app.
