Get things done on the go and on your wrist with OmniFocus for Apple Watch

Getting Stuff Done
April 14, 2015

The Omni Group is staying true to the “omni” (meaning “all”) in its name, as it has just updated OmniFocus to be available on all of Apple’s end-user platforms. That is to say, the acclaimed task management app, which has long been available on iPhone, iPad, and Mac, is now available on Apple Watch as well.

As touted by The Omni Group, OmniFocus for Apple Watch is “designed deliberately for Apple’s most personal device” as it “brings your tasks into greater harmony with how you move through the day.”

On the Apple Watch, OmniFocus has its very own app that gives you quick and easy access to your tasks (including tasks that are overdue and due soon as well as ones that are due today), flagged items, inbox items, projects, and contexts. This lets you plan your day ahead and check off tasks you’ve accomplished on the go. You can also Force Touch on the app to bring up the context menu, tap to speak, and add a new inbox item.

OmniFocus also has its own implementation of Apple Watch’s Glance. This lets you see your next due action, enabling you to stay on top of your tasks with just a turn of your wrist.

Notifications are also included in Omnifocus’ Apple Watch support, reminding you of tasks and offering quick options for completing and snoozing them right on your wrist.

Of course, whatever you do with and however you act on your tasks on your Apple Watch, all changes are automatically synced with your iPhone and other devices thanks to Apple’s Continuity.

With OmniFocus on your Apple Watch, you’re sure to maintain, or even boost, your productivity even while you’re on the move.

Apple Watch support is included in the latest version of OmniFocus 2, which also includes bug fixes and miscellaneous improvements.

OmniFocus 2 is available on the App Store for $39.99. It’s compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 8.1 or later.

Previously compatible with iPad only, the app was updated earlier this month with universal support for iPhone and iPod touch.
