Developers When you activate the pin code please follow Apple recommended practices from WWDC 2019 and change the Data Protection Class for the omnifocus dB to NSFileProtectionComplete It’s literally one line of code and adds an additional robust layer of app-level protection for personal information stores in the app. It’s so trivial to activate please do it.
Cannot set up accounts so cant quit it. Is this a scam app?
I've had Omnifocus 2 for over a year and was happy to hear of this upgrade to Omnifocus 3. However, there are several bugs (and design flaws) that make the app too untrustworthy to be one's "external brain," which make me advise AGAINST buying: (1) Have to tap multiple times to enter basic information for new items, particularly just to add an item in the middle of an existing list. In omnifocus, you tap the "+", type the title, tap "save," then click and drag to where you want the item (4 taps). In Things 3, its 3 taps. (2) This leads me to one of the bugs: when you want to click and drag an item to the top of the list … you can't! It's a bug that has existed for nearly a year now since release. (Now 12 months.) Tech support told me that I could circumvent the bug by dragging my new item 2nd from the top, then dragging the top item below to 3rd place. After all this development time, drag and drop doesn't work? (Related to (1) above, that's 6 taps just to add a new item to the top of a list.) (2.1) Edit: I've just learned that new items can be inserted into the middle of existing lists by tapping and holding the "Add to Inbox" button—as opposed to the plus-symbol "Add Here" button. From a user-expectation perspective, this is still highly confusing. (3) The badge count constantly needs updating—by opening the app—and is almost always inaccurate thereby. (4) Location-based alerts only sometimes go off. They, too, are not reliable. (5) If you search for a project (or the task) and long-press, it'll say "Go to Project." The expectation is that you'll be taken directly to that project from the search results. Not so. Instead, nothing happens and you are taken straight to where you already were looking. If you try searching again, the project won't even appear. This bug, too, has existed since release date May 2018. (Again, as of this writing, it has been 12 months.) (6) Updates are far and few between. Last one had a several month gap, and these major bugs are still not even on their radar. Come on. These bugs and design failures are too much to bear. It's just a huge time sink and hindrance to use the program on iOS. (Even Mac has crippling bugs that crash the software, but that's another App Store review.) Strongly recommend against purchasing and to go with one of omnigroup's two major competitors. Either one would give you a better user experience than this.
Im a 3 year veteran user of omnifocus lol im still getting the hang of its amazing. Could we (the paid in full users) get an update with option to add documents? Such as pdfs or word documents?
Thank you for one of my most important Apps. Everyone needs it !!
OmniFocus has been a staple in my personal and business life for several years, and is honestly one of the apps that I can’t function without. The initial price tag is high, but being able to sync across my MacBook, iPad, and iPhone is worth the investment. However, I will pay for it one time - not multiple times. When OF3 came out, the system no longer recognizes my username or email address, basically forcing me to purchase it all over again, which I will not do. Guess I will be looking for another task management app
I purchased this app, after already owning the Mac version, because it said that family sharing worked with up to 6 people. When I went to share it with my wife, so we could track tasks for an upcoming party together, I found out that this wasn’t true. The app does nothing until you make an in-app purchase, which doesn’t work with family sharing, so my $50 was just for me to get notifications on my phone.
“Some features require an in app purchase” Ok, let’s install and see what we get. Nothing. Nada. This app requires a $50 in-app purchase or a $10/Month subscription. No free tier. Only option is a 14 day trial. Extremely deceptive to show up in the App Store as free. Developer needs to be more clear in their description, and Apple needs to change how apps are displayed in the App Store if they require a purchase or subscription to function.
Cumbersome and interface not entirely intuitive
Omnifocus is the GTD app that candidate ”Get Things Done”. I've been using OmniFocus since its inception and am a second generation use. No matter how small the MacOS market was, I pittied PC users for their lack of access to OmniFocus. It's not about just GTD, its how you get things done and while making it stupidly easy to use and learn, incredibly customizable with limitless potential. In all seriousness, I can’t imagine why they'd buy FileMaker or Claris but don't own the single best Mac exclusive software developer. Honestly, considered your continued innovation, logical progression and continuously constant updates, I'm more than happy to see you independent. While your software is on the expensive side, I find it a no issue with that especially since you haven't adopted a a subscription model and due to your top notch support.for current and legacy products and willingness to listen your community. My planning philosophy is based on all the software and apps you produce. It was just the solution that most parallel with they way I want to think. Kudos Omnigroup and thank you for OmniFocus (and leaving omnipresence free, I don't know how to find an alternative).
