Create new tasks anywhere. Thanks to the share sheet extensions in iOS, now you can add tasks from anywhere on iOS with an extension. So you don't have to be in OmniFocus 2 to add a new task to your inbox. You can even take action on notifications right as they pop up without going into the app itself. Pretty nifty, right?

OmniFocus 2's home screen

OmniFocus 2's home screen. Everything in OmniFocus 2 is organized and simple to navigate. The home screen is a great way to see what you have coming up in a single glance. The numbers tell you how many items are in that section, and tapping on one will take you directly to that view. It's never been so easy to be organized.

The great Forecast. The Forecast in OmniFocus 2 is one of the best features of the app. It gives you a view of today and the next five days, so you basically get the week in a glance. See how many tasks are due on each day, and you can also see if there's anything you missed from the past. The colored check circles make it easy to tell what is upcoming and what is past due. Stay on top of your tasks and never be disorganized again with OmniFocus 2.

What is it about?

If you want to be super productive, then you need OmniFocus 2. This powerful task manager app follows the Getting Things Done (GTD) system, where users create projects, custom perspectives, location-based reminders, delegate, and review all of their tasks. While OmniFocus 2 is known to have a steep learning curve and can be quite costly for the entire suite, it is a powerful and fairly customizable solution for those who want the best task management software their money can buy. It's also the best choice if you want to go with the traditional GTD system.

For those who...

  • Want a task management system that follows the strict rules of GTD
  • Prefer a complicated, robust, and powerful system that can be completely customized and tailored for your needs

Not for those who...

  • Don't need a complex system
  • Want a task management app that is suitable for a reasonable budget

Why we love it

The complexity of the app may scare us at first, but it is one of the most flexible and customizable options out there. There are not many limits with OmniFocus 2, and while it can be expensive for all the apps, it's well worth the cost for productivity nuts like us.

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.


• 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:


• 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
