OmniFocus for iPhone


OmniFocus for iPhone brings task management to your fingertips. Keep track of tasks by project, place, person, or date. With OmniFocus for iPhone, you'll always have your important information at hand, whether it's a shopping list, agenda items to discuss at work, things to do at home—whatever you need.

Since winning the Apple Design Award for best Productivity App at the launch of the iPhone App Store, OmniFocus hasn't rested on its laurels: we've continuously improved the app over the years with over 40 free updates, most recently adding a Forecast view and support for capturing tasks from Siri.

"OmniFocus for the iPhone is one of the best examples of a great iPhone app that I've seen. The interface is simple, intuitive, and it just lets you get your stuff done." — iPhone Alley Editors Choice Award 2009

"Finding the right application to manage your tasks is great, and it's even better when there's a companion app for your iPhone or iPod touch. OmniFocus for the iPhone is a perfect example: It fits well with its Desktop brother, includes the features you need to organize your tasks, builds task lists based on your current location, captures voice notes and pictures, and synchronizes with your Mac via MobileMe or WebDAV servers. " — Mac Observer Editors Choice Award 2009

Use OmniFocus for iPhone on its own, or sync through the cloud with your other devices running OmniFocus (also available for iPad and Mac).


- Organize tasks by goals using projects, then work towards those goals more efficiently by grouping tasks using contexts.
- Synchronize your tasks with other copies of OmniFocus using Omni's free Sync Server or other WebDAV servers.
- Create a new task quickly anywhere in the app, or by sending tasks from other apps such as Safari and Twittelator.
- Plan your day's errands by listing nearby contexts or viewing them on a map.
- Receive notifications when a task becomes due, or when you happen to be near a context with available tasks.
- Tell Siri what's on your mind, and it can go straight to your OmniFocus inbox.
- Break large tasks up into more manageable steps you can complete and track individually.
- Attach pictures and audio to your task notes, and synchronize them with other copies of OmniFocus.
- Contact our Ninjas for free customer support via email or phone to keep your trusted system running smoothly.

What's new in version 1.16.2

OmniFocus 1.16.2 — July 25, 2013
OmniFocus for iPhone 1.16.2 is a minor update which prevents misconfigured servers from downgrading the security of a connection.

OmniFocus for iPhone requires iOS 6.1 or later.

• When OmniFocus is configured to use an encrypted https connection to a sync server, it will now ignore any location headers from that server that tell it to switch to unencrypted http. Our assumption is that your configuration choice indicates that you want all sync operations to be encrypted, and that any servers which redirect to unencrypted http locations for these resources are simply misconfigured.

OmniFocus 1.16.1 — July 18, 2013
OmniFocus for iPhone 1.16.1 is a minor update which fixes a handful of reported issues.

Bug Fixes
• Fixed a crash on launch when restoring view state for some customers upgrading from a previous version.
• Fixed a crash when sending an action via email due to missing localized resources.
• Fixed a problem where the contextual menu on action rows could interfere with reordering actions.
• Fixed a regression which resulted in a Perspective focused on No Context to be empty.

OmniFocus 1.16 — July 3, 2013
OmniFocus for iPhone 1.16 adds Background Sync options and the ability to send actions via email.

Background Sync
• With Background Sync, you'll have the most current information in your pocket as you go about your day. Add your most frequent locations to the Background Sync list, and OmniFocus on your iPhone or iPod Touch will sync automatically when you arrive or leave.

Context Locations
• Business search results are now retrieved from Apple instead of Google.
• Business search results are now sorted by proximity.

Email Actions
• Added ability to send actions via email, as in OmniFocus for iPad.

• Improved copy and paste of Actions.
• Fixed a couple crashes.
• Changed the Inbox badge count calculation to match OmniFocus on the Mac.
• Improved handling of audio interruptions.
• Added button on Forecast event details to view the event in Calendar.

We love hearing from you! You can reach us by tapping Send Feedback on the Settings screen, sending email to, tweeting to @omnifocus, or calling 1-800-315-OMNI or +1 206-523-4152.

my only task management app. A bit of a learning curve but well worth it once you master this app.

I run my entire life using OmniFocus. It is the first App I consult in the morning and one of the last I check in the evening. What first impressed me was the 100% reliable syncing between Mac and iPhone (and now iPad). In the early days (before iCloud) I used it for syncing documents and photos (as attachments) because it never 'lost' them! To buy all three versions is quite expensive but in my case worth every penny. I would give OmniFocus eleven stars!

I use this everyday on both the iPhone, iPad, and desktop. It is one of the apps that make my iOS devices true digital personal assistants that I use to organize and manage my life.

The cadillac of task managers. Overkill for some, but I LOVE it. The ability to set start dates, means you don't see tasks until you need to do them!

The "manage-my-life" app. Everything I need to get done goes in here. Syncs with the Mac and iPad versions, so can enter new tasks anywhere, any time. A bit of a learning curve, but once you get the hang of it - very powerful.

Best ToDo manager I've found. Integrates beautifully with Siri for voice added memos. Another big plus is that it pulls in iCal and has a split ToDo/iCal view.
