OmniFocus For iPhone To Gain The Currently iPad-Exclusive Forecast Feature
It appears that The Omni Group is hard at work to make their OmniFocus products more inline with each other. In fact, one of the features that debuted with OmniFocus for iPad has been confirmed to be making its way to the iPhone and desktop versions of the app. Very early this morning, Omni Group Founder and CEO, Ken Case tweeted a screenshot of an upcoming update to their OmniFocus for iPhone and iPod touch app. The screenshot shows an example of the "Forecast" feature in use on an iPhone 4. In response to user's questions of the previous tweet, Mr. Case made a mention that the company is also planning to bring this functionality to their Mac OS X desktop client .
@Eingang Forecast will be coming to OmniFocus for Mac as well. (I want to use it there myself!)Neither release had a timetable revealed, however, we've contacted them in hopes of sharing further details with our readers. What is the Forecast feature? It's a view that provides a quick look of all your scheduled to-dos of the upcoming week. As you can see in the image above, the iPhone version will only be able to show the next five days, whereas the iPad's larger screen can handle the full 7-day outlook. Indicators show the number of tasks you have set to be completed and how urgent they are. OmniFocus is designed for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 3.0 or later, and available in the App Store for $19.99. OmniFocus for iPad is compatible with iPad running iOS 3.2 or later, and available in the App Store for $39.99.
