OmniFocus 3 Reviews


I’m done updating this app  jjmm33  2 star

When support drops off for the version 2, I’ll be done with OmniFocus. The price is too steep for this app.

OX Bush

Must purchase the upgrade?..  OX Bush  1 star

Doesn’t make much sense that you need to purchase an upgrade after already being an existing user. Was hesitant paying the first time and wasn’t exactly blown away so there’s no chance I’ll be paying this absurd price twice. The price point is made to make it seem as though the app is revolutionary, a smart marketing tactic, but unfortunately its not.


Natural language  Shepherd517  2 star

It is absurd that a $40 app doesn’t support natural language input


Better than OF2  cdgdrummer  3 star

This version is better than OF2, particularly with visual effects and options. The new options for repeating tasks is a HUGE improvement. My number one complaint is that the badge notification doesn’t notify at a due time unless you physically open the app. Running it in the background doesn’t help. I have contacted Omni about this, and I hope they can work around this for the price point.


Upgrading to Version 3  [email protected]#$%  3 star

So I'm not sure why after paying the original 2 fees for the pro version V1 and V2. Why is it that the app itself isn't supported any more for previous users. Additionally why is the app payment not carried over. The app is good but to have to pay for each version is disappointing. On the next version will there be another fee? Disappointing.

Absolute Best In Class  cmsteahly  5 star

First of all, let me get this out of the way. In regards to the upgrade price - I would much rather pay a one-time price for incremental upgrades than to have to pay a subscription fee for Omni Group apps. I think we're all tired of the subscription-based model most apps are taking these days. Let's keep that in mind when we leave a review. Okay, moving on. I am a GTD app junky. I’ve tried every to-do app under the sun, and I always come back to OmniFocus. It is THE GTD app, in my opinion. You can use it as a casual task management app, if you like; yet, it has enough robust features to move it into the realm of a pro application. I particularly love the custom perspectives you can create to match your particular work-flow. The design (particularly, the dark theme) looks wonderful on the iPad and the iPhone. A must-have app for those wanting to organize their brain and enhance their productivity.


$59.99 to have all features unlocked..  MelissaN89  1 star

Too much money for this app


好极了  caz_sungang  5 star



40 $  bcneveralways  1 star

free is only for 2 weeks. Yall really think this app is worth 40 dollars ?


Bad UI  lukenpr  5 star

Best at what it does but still incredibly frustrating and clunky UI. I can’t change folder names, or move them around. It takes 3-5 taps to change project location.

Ken Act

Too expensive for a humble update  Ken Act  2 star

I have a feeling the developer abuses the loyalty of their customers. I love the app’s decency but not the way I have been used. Again, too expensive for a humble update.


Expensive upgrade for limited features  will.i.am_k  3 star

This is a very expensive upgrade for only limited changes. It’s hard to see why this is a major upgrade. Maybe the watch app is the reason but with Apple Watch dying off it is a strange decision by OmniFocus.


Clean, beautiful interface; fun to use  Phampton  5 star

This is by far the best app for an augmented GTD workflow, and I’ve looked at most. The reason for me is its strong support for enabling trust in whatever workflow you develop. Anyone who has used a task management app for more than a month or two will know how easy it is to loose actions in some corner of the database. Omnifocus handles this problem in two elegant ways. Firstly, the pro edition (you’ll quickly find that this is essential) has a highly flexible Perspective generator, for example allowing a view of stalled projects - those which don’t have any available actions. Want to generate a Work view; Home, Errands, People, Overseas Holiday? Easy. V3’s support for Tags greatly extends the possibilities from V2’s basic GTD Contexts. Secondly, even the standard edition has a customisable review cycle for every project, making it super easy to fine-tune, cull, and reorganise. Plenty of other features too: more variety of repeat options, an interleaved forecast view, and we haven’t even seen V3.1 or V3.2 yet.

Tim Hogan

Great update  Tim Hogan  5 star

This is a well thought through update that expands upon the best GTD app in existence. It’s feature allow you cut your work into what’s important and what can be done. It’s important to reduce cognitive load by knowing what you can do at any one moment, and deciding what’s important to you in that moment. This is as much an investment in yourself as it is in the omnigroup. Well done to the team for a fantastic update.


Glad I got a free upgrade  Pascel  4 star

I was hesitant to download this app, because I’m getting fed up with how much I’ve had to pay OmniGroup lately for their frequent updates. Still beats the subscription model (I would no longer use their software in that case). That being said, I was pleasantly surprised with the free upgrade. Layout looks nice.


More than a task manager  Officemondays  5 star

Omnifocus is the best task manager that I've personally used, but just calling it a task manager does it a disservice. Omnifocus helps me manage all of the projects (big or small) in my life. It does have a steep learning curve at first, but I encourage those who are discouraged in the beginning to play around with it and find a system that works for you. It took me a bit, but now I couldn't be happier. I've been using it for the past two years and am very pleased with the 3.0 update and additions.


A disappointing step backwards  SoonerLawyer  1 star

OmniFocus 3 is a disappointing step backwards. It is cluttered and difficult to read, particularly in Focus mode. I like the idea of switching Contexts into Tags and allowing multiple tags per task, but the execution is awful. Now it’s a tag app, and everything else seems secondary. The app that once organized my work now makes a mess of it. It never bothered me to pay the asking price for this app because until now it has been brilliant. But I’m going back to OmniFocus 2 – it was clean, elegant, and flawless. Version 3 is none of those things.


Awesome  Falcon1125  4 star

Simply awesome, though i hope there is more keyboard shortcut such as tagging and select multiple item when pressed shift + arrow.


Great App, almost 5 Stars!  Mwd2010  4 star

Great app! The ability to have multiple tags opens up endless recommendation, allow us to use repeating date features on reviews like we can now on task(example: first weekday of every month)....I feel like this was overlooked.

Galel Hicyang

Please make it on lower iOS version  Galel Hicyang  1 star

Give customer with older device a chance.

Edward Dansen

Unparallelled  Edward Dansen  5 star

Omnifocus 3 is a solid update and continues its legacy as the best task management app out there. I typically only spend time in it at the beginning and end of my day to plan what is ahead, but for quite awhile now, it is by far the most useful software I use. I’ve tried other apps and never found anything that can compete. OF’s “defer date” feature allows you to easily plan without setting arbitrary due dates. This allows me to track a high volume of tasks while always knowing what absolutely needs to get done today. This has become even easier with the introduction of tags, allowing for A,B,C prioritization, and is flexible enough it can probably accommodate almost any system you might come up with. The Review function is also something that is missing from every other app I’ve tried. This allows me to easily put things on hold without losing track of them. When I read about the updates planned for Omnifocus 3, they struck me, and I’m sure others, as perhaps minor. However, after using it for about a week now, I can say it really is a significant update that I am very glad I purchased. Tags and batch editing alone have made a huge difference on the iPad. More options for setting up perspectives with easy to use rules has also been a big plus (only on the pro version I believe). As others have commented, it is not as sleek-looking as the UI of Things 3. It is an area I think can still use improvement. However, I found the clean look of Things 3 falls apart as soon as you’ve got a high volume of projects you’re managing, which is not the case with Omnifocus. One of its many strengths is its high-powered options combined with versatility that allows you to see only what you want to see, when you want to see it.

Artem Gordinsky

I wish Watch app would get some love  Artem Gordinsky  3 star

The iPhone app is great, I love it. The one for the Apple Watch seems to have stayed the same though, which is to say nearly useless. It’s still not possible to simply select a project and see its tasks. Instead you have to use the perspectives, which is annoying. I wish you would just make a new one guys.


fantastic new version  npn_jcn  5 star

keep up the good work


Sub-par update  DadaStar2  3 star

Here's a sub-par major update by the Omni Group. Sorry to say that, being a long standing customer who's always been loyal to the Omni folks. The user experience does not improve much. That flag icon is, simply put, ugly. Too many options remain at glance, even with the newly implemented customizable palette to hide what you don't need to see. And if you hide too many items, plenty of empty space comes up. What about the much expected new automation tools? No sight so far. Where's the polished simplicity we all have been waiting for, if so many icons still clutter the view almost everywhere? No Markdown integration yet and still, by my knowledge, no deepened interoperability with other Omni products. In the meantime, competition gets tougher out there...
