  • Hopping off the bandwagon after 5+ years

    By bsbernie
    The fact that my reminders/task management app for 5+ years no longer reliably notifies me when a task is due is a dealbreaker. David Allen says to put all your thoughts in a trusted system, and I can no longer trust this system despite being the most expensive in the App Store for this category. Disappointing. Seems like OmniFocus needs to ‘focus’ on the basics rather than all the bells and whistles they’re working on for OF3.
  • Costs $80, not $40 as advertised

    By ahh7dn
    The whole reason I got this app was the advertised cross-platform capabilities. I paid $40 for the app on the Mac store and attempted to sync this account to the one on my phone when the app informed me for the first time that the Mac and iOS platforms are sold separately (even though the app is advertised to be used on all your devices repeatedly and with heavy emphasis) and that I would have to pay an additional $40 to get it on my phone as well. I had made my peace with a $40 organizational app, but having the true price of $80 sprung on me like this was ridiculous. Now I have to just through all the hoops involved in getting a refund. Additionally, it’s absurd that to unlock the full potential of the app on either Mac or iOS you must upgrade to pro for an additional $40 each, bringing the total for this cross-platform app to function at its best to $160 dollars.
  • iPhone X support

    Please adjust the night mode to utilize the true black in dark mode. It will help with the user experience and optimize battery life. Thank you
  • A life changing app and Mac software.

    By adam71esq
    If you implement gtd by using this software it can change your life. I am so organized it scares me sometimes. I was a user from version 1 of the Mac software and recommend to everyone who wants more balance in their life.
  • Awesome

    By richbajo
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Omnifocus! It’s a great looking app and so powerful. I probably just scratch the surface but it’s comforting to know that I can grow into more and more sophisticated workflows as needed. It’s really improved my life and lowered my stress levels. And let’s face it, purple is really the best color out there. I can’t wait until 3.0!
  • As a sole pastor in a church-keeps me sane

    By Antiduplicity
    I do not have many long term projects. I have thousands of little tasks. This keeps is all under control and helps me keep my sanity. The perspectives gives me many view on tasks that are immediate or just starting. I have tried every todo app I could find. This is the only one that has all the features and a "one price" get everything. I use the siri every night before I go to bed. I just to an audible brain dump and in the morning I move them out of the inbox. This does 99.99% of what I need. I am tired of all the subscription offerings just to use an app. I will not rent an app, I want to buy it. This is what Omnifocus offers. This is the best of the best. As David Sparks says, put on your big boy pants and start getting things done. This app sits in my dock and I use it multiple times an hour. It syncs everything with my iPad and my Mac's flawlessly. I have tried them all and I always come back to omnifocus
  • Functionality/options missing

    By cdgdrummer
    Omnifocus 2 is visually appealing, but lacks options/functions. It offers a robust project focused approach, and I like the calendar view in Forecast and the dark mode. It absolutely needs additional custom repeat options such as every x months on the first/last/2nd -day of the month (hopefully they will come soon). Furthermore, the badge count and items won't update in the background even though background app refresh is on and the app is idle in the background-I'm sure they can do this because other apps do this (2Do and Things for example). Even though I'm drawn to the aesthetics of this app, I keep hoping for more functionality at their price point.
  • Upgrade required

    By Franke Design
    I went to use my OmniFocus and it says update requires. There is no update since they made a new app. On the new app I can’t do anything I could on the old one without paying a heavy subscription price. Well that was fun while it lasted.
  • Glitches causing all future tasks to appear

    By sm212sea
    This software used to work well, but lately, it has been buggy - slow to sync and costing me too much time to troubleshoot, reset and redo all of my tasks. All of my future tasks keep showing up in my daily view. I don’t care to see what I need to do several months in the future in my task list for today. Support has been unhelpful. Nothing left to do but delete it and find a better app.
  • Overpriced and doesn’t deliver

    By Ybenami
    Overall the app is absurdly priced for what it gives you. Worse still, you can pretty much count on being screwed by the developer down the line. I paid $120 to buy the first iPhone, iPad and Mac versions of this POS app (ridiculous, I know).... and then these guys decided to discontinue the earlier version, come out with a “V2”, and charge me all over again. A decent developer, one that isn’t a scam artist, includes updates to their app, especially when you drop such an absurd amount on it. But not these guys. Nope. They just call their update V2 and try to charge you again. Avoid at all costs. These guys are more thieves than they are developers.
