• Forecast row shows you how much is due in the next few days on your homescreen or sidebar; open the Forecast perspective to see your due items alongside events from your iOS Calendar
• NEW on iPhone, a dedicated Review perspective makes sure nothing falls through the cracks (Review has been on iPad since the beginning)
• NEW Keep your most important work on you with OmniFocus for Apple Watch — as quick as a glance at what’s due today or as powerful as seamlessly sending any list from your iPhone.
• NEW Choose between light and dark color palettes, or have OmniFocus automatically adjust as background lighting shifts.

Starting from a solid, simple user experience, we added Pro features for customizing OmniFocus and making it even more powerful. Pro is available via In-App Purchase and free to customers who purchased OmniFocus 1 for iPhone or iPad:

• NEW Customize the OmniFocus sidebar and home screen just like you customize your iOS Device's home screen.

OmniFocus 2 App Description & Overview

The applications OmniFocus 2 was published in the category Productivity on 2014-09-17 and was developed by The Omni Group. The file size is 64.54 MB. The current version is 2.19.1 and works well on 10.0 and high ios versions.

OmniFocus 2.19 introduces a new attachment storage and sync system. To migrate to the new system you’ll need to be running OmniFocus 2.19 or later on all of your iOS devices and OmniFocus 2.9 or later on all of your Macs. Once all of your syncing devices are running a version that supports the new system, you’ll be prompted to migrate your database.

OmniFocus 2.19.1 is a minor update focused on bug fixes.

• Attachments — When viewing from Settings and sorting by Added, the added date is now displayed correctly.
• Sync — Fixed a problem where OmniFocus didn’t recognize that an error returned by NGINX (that OmniFocus’ data/ directory hadn’t been created yet) was recoverable. OmniFocus should once again be able to sync to NGINX WebDAV servers without a workaround.
• Crash — Fixed a crash with attachment preview generation that was the eventual result of a transient bug during our 2.19 test period.
• Crash — Fixed our most common crash in OmniFocus 2.x.
• Sync Errors — Updated the error message that appears when OmniFocus is unable to overwrite one of its own files on the server. This is a problem currently affecting customers syncing using Jianguoyun (坚果云).
• Sync Settings — OmniFocus now warns you about possible data loss when disabling sync.
• Localizations — Updated Localizations.
If you have any feedback or questions, we’d love to hear from you! The Omni Group offers free tech support; you can email [email protected], call 1–800–315–6664 or 1–206–523–4152, or tweet @OmniFocus.

我使用todo类软件的经历  Luke Zheng  5 star

最早我使用Things来管理任务,后来换成wunderlist,再后来Todo,然后Informant,最后是Omnifocus。在这些任务管理软件中只有两款给我留下深刻印象,一款是Things,其特点是简洁,实用,使用起来异常高效。另一款则是Omnifocus,特点是功能齐备,可以履行异常复杂的任务管理模式。 个人建议: Things适合那些做事时希望保留一些主观随意性的人。Things简洁的操作流程不会让你感觉添加和修改任务是一种负担,这对于那些时刻迸发创意的人来说尤为重要,因为复杂的记录过程一定会在不同程度上搅乱你起初的创意逻辑。对于这类人而言,主观的思考权永远是最重要的,而Things的设计理念并不是奔着替代用户的大脑而去,于是它给你留下了宝贵的思考空间,这是目前的同类软件难以做到的。 另外,Things的优点在于,它不仅仅是砍掉了同类软件中许多繁杂的功能,而且砍得恰到好处,我认为Things的设计人员是按照艺术的视角来设计了Things,它在功能与实用之间找到了平衡,而这种平衡使得它非常耐用。我想这大概是我转了一圈又重拾Things的原因。 Omnifocus适合那些拥有较强逻辑性,做事依赖详细规划的人。Omnifocus拥有异常强大的功能设计,首先是允许用户对任务属性进行详尽的描述,如“时长...”。其次提供过滤器,这个过滤器是Omnifocus区别于其他软件的最大特点,它可以根据用户的需要通过对任务属性进行筛选来管理任务。这对于思维严谨且做事一丝不苟的人来说非常实用。但是,对于那些倾向于保留一些随意性的人而言,Omnifocus复杂的操作过程只会让你逐渐对GTD理念望而生畏。我就是这样从使用Omnifocus的频率逐渐减少直到停止的。 我的选择: 我选择Things,但这并不意味着Omnifocus不好。实际上,如我以上谈到,Omnifocus绝对是一款功能异常强大的任务管理软件。我写这篇评论的目的也不是要对两款软件评个好坏,而是让大家在购买之前对自己有一个内审,只有人对自己有一个清楚的认识,才能选对工具。


As a sole pastor in a church-keeps me sane  Antiduplicity  5 star

I do not have many long term projects. I have thousands of little tasks. This keeps is all under control and helps me keep my sanity. The perspectives gives me many view on tasks that are immediate or just starting. I have tried every todo app I could find. This is the only one that has all the features and a "one price" get everything. I use the siri every night before I go to bed. I just to an audible brain dump and in the morning I move them out of the inbox. This does 99.99% of what I need. I am tired of all the subscription offerings just to use an app. I will not rent an app, I want to buy it. This is what Omnifocus offers. This is the best of the best. As David Sparks says, put on your big boy pants and start getting things done. This app sits in my dock and I use it multiple times an hour. It syncs everything with my iPad and my Mac's flawlessly. I have tried them all and I always come back to omnifocus


I looked at many and this is it  thiswillkillthat  5 star

I just started running a large team and needed a better way to organize my own tasks as well as my teams. The context feature here is spectacular and it's the only program that has it. Watch the video about this product and I promise you will wind up choosing it too.

Vulgar demos

The best, but not in love  Vulgar demos  4 star

OmniFocus is still the best app despite its many flaws. Among these flaws: - annoying pricing hoops with versions and legacy apps that almost make you wish you could just pay them a subscription; - lack of customizability in perspectives (the single developer working on 2Do beats them by miles); - lack of natural language input (see Todoist) - lack of ability to integrate with web APIs like IFTTT - clunky design (compare to Things) - very slow roll out of even the most basic feature (such as universal search). Still, the app is the best because it has the combination of things that other apps lack: - good customer support - deferred dates - consistent experience across devices


Needs Similar Capabilities as Desktop Version  kbbeach55  4 star

I use this everyday and I love it! It works great with the GTD and is very powerful. However, I predominately have to use the mobile app since my work uses Windows. It would be nice to have certain features that only the desktop version offers—the ability to duplicate tasks/projects/folders seamlessly, have the option to complete a project automatically once all tasks have been completed, etc.


Still the gold standard...  dgirardier  5 star

I've tried them all and every time I come back to OmniFocus.


Keeps me on track  GiantSteve  4 star

My life is busy with professional, civic and family responsibilities and I have spent years looking for a tool that would multiply my efficiency. I have a complicated relationship with to do apps... I have used almost all of them including 2do, the new Things 3, Todoist, Wunderlist, Trello, Asana and more. It turns out that no magic solutions exist, but OmniFocus is tied with Things 3 as the best system to help manage my busy life. It's a powerful system with a design that reveals itself over time as you use it. Each element of OmniFocus provides useful information or a useful way to approach task management. From the task circles to file attachments to nested projects to perspectives to the review process, it's obvious that the developers have carefully thought about how people manage in the real world. It's also rock solid... no bugs or usability issues at all. All this power does have a learning curve... But it is worth the effort. The developers should take a good look at Things 3, however. While it's not as powerful as OmniFocus it's a joy to use... still deciding which best meets my needs.

"No key in slot 15"  Naco Siren  1 star

Please fix this sync bug. My account works perfectly on my iPhone, iPad Mini and MacBook Pro.


Masterpiece  ceh8c  5 star

I have used Evernote, Asana, and many other task management systems. This is by far the best. Great calendar integration, great apple watch integration, great reminder / Siri integration, great notification system. In every way seamless - thanks to the team for making such a great product. To users considering adopting, I recommend adopting the 'getting things done' approach: add tasks as you think of them into the Inbox using Siri voice integration (optionally assigning dates to tasks if they are time critical by telling Siri when the reminder is due) then sort tasks at a later time into projects this clearing out the Inbox.


Still the best for real productivity.  Motsumi  5 star

For the last 10 years of my career, I have had more to do than time to do it. This requires two things every day: 1) Get the right stuff done and 2) work as efficiently as possible. Omnifocus is the only app combo (Mac/iPad included) that has the power and speed to keep up. It is professional productivity. I can't say this about any other app combo. Each rival app is missing something that keeps it from standing up to the rigor and pace I need. But Omnifocus can handle it. Day after day. Year after year. For a decade and counting. Thanks Omnigroup.

Custom Columns layout option added in v2.3 has made OmniFocus less brain hurty for me. 💜 to The Omni Group for this.


Bruno Mars  cvsantiago  5 star

What? I never write reviews. But for this app, a little something. My business is sorted. Took half the day to figure it out, but I feel butter smooth now.


Love this app!  Sebags  5 star

I live and die by this app. It helps me organize and prioritize my commitments and stay on top of my game. Totally worth checking out!


Couldn't live without it  zemackdaddy  5 star

The review mode alone makes this #1. I set the frequency of how often I want to review each project and just tap the review button daily. Nothing else's does this.


Best $40 I have spent  Capanujan  5 star

Omnifocus is the premier app for GTD. It works perfectly with my natural system for how I organize my life. I would be hard pressed to think of ways to improve it.


If you do GTD, look no further  SnapyaFangaz  5 star

If you don't use GTD (or similar), this app is overkill, but if you do, there's nothing else like it.


Surprisingly great  ry3bee  5 star

I wasn't sure what I was getting into, but something about Omnifocus for iPad is just a perfect combination. I figured that it'd be underused in the device ecosystem, but I'm beginning to think that – even more than desktop or phone – iPad will be my primary omnifocus device.


Best in class  adrianwashere  4 star

This is an amazing productivity App. I've tried them all and this is the best in my opinion. I recently gave todoist another shot. While todoist does have more automation features (many are coming to OmniFocus this year) I couldn't get past its design. OmniFocus is not only functional, but its design is also beautiful and they take advantage of all the latest iOS technologies. They are an Apple only company and you can tell. 4 stars only because they are lacking some automation ... but that is supposed to be coming this year. Couldn't live without this app!


Excellent  drande  5 star

OmniFocus is my go-to app for running virtually everything in my life, work and personal. Great app, love it. But I'm really looking forward to the ability to batch-edit multiple items at once. According to The Omni Blog, that feature is on the roadmap for 2017—hopefully that will be available for *both* iPad and iPhone.


Great app for all your Apple devices!  pattappat  5 star

Been using it for a week now and it's made me much more productive and less stressed. The I use it in the Mac, iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch and it syncs perfectly between all of them

Great app, not for amateurs  48 user since 1989  5 star
