Frustrated With OmniFocus For iPhone Crashing? It's Finally Fixed!

If you’re like me, OmniFocus is your everything. It keeps your hectic schedules and things to do and deepest, darkest secrets (okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration) all in one place, all flawlessly synced across all of your devices.

But, oh no! OmniFocus for iPhone was recently plagued by a nasty iCloud bug (of course it had to do with iCloud), that caused it to crash every time it was launched. It was literally unusable unless you jumped through a few hoops. This drove me nuts.

But, my fellow getting things done (GTD) acolytes, rejoice! The good people over at The Omni Group have finally squashed that bug and all is now right with the world.

Unless, of course, you count the ugly white check mark icon still hanging out. That thing has to go. The iPad app icon is perfect. Even the Mac icon has the beautiful black check mark instead of the white. They should be uniform. I actually don’t know why they had to change the icon to begin with. I’ve gotten used to the squiggly lines, but the white check mark is still quite the eye sore, in my opinion. I can’t wait for it to be gone.

I know, I know. I’m such an app icon nerd. I can’t help it; my home screen is precious.

Along with the all important bug squashing, OmniFocus for iPhone now also supports more specific repeating tasks. For example, when you have a project or action that repeats every week, you can now specify which days of the week it occurs. But, take note:

Please update to OmniFocus 1.10 for Mac and OmniFocus 1.5 for iPad before using these new flexible weekly repeats, as older releases of OmniFocus do not understand this new repeat data. If you edit or complete one of these items using a previous release of OmniFocus, you will lose the weekday repeat specification.

So, were you plagued by the awful OmniFocus for iPhone crashing bug? But, more importantly: How do you feel about that cumbersome white check mark?

OmniFocus for iPhone is available in the App Store for $19.99.
