iPhone version screws up repeating tasks
Hi, I have a task to remind me to read through updates on a web site. I have it set to repeat every day so that when I have left it a few days, I can count how many times it has repeated to know how many days worth of updates I need to read through.

On the mac version the task appears as one entry and when I click it, it gets crossed out and a new one appears underneith until I am up-to-date.

But when I launch the iPhone app and it syncs the task often spawns duplicates. And when I go back onto the mac version the duplicates that the iPhone version made are still there and I have to clean it up and lose the chance of seeing how many days I am behind.

Any ideas, is this a bug or am I using the repeat thingy in a way that was never intended?

If a repeating task is checked off on *both* the mac and the iPhone, both will create their own 'next time' copy of the action. After sync, each gets the other's copy, which can be a little confusing.

If that doesn't sound like what you're seeing, please zip up a copy of your OmniFocus database and send it to the [EMAIL=""]support ninjas[/EMAIL] with some info on which tasks are the ones that look wrong to you. We'll try and figure out what happened and get it fixed if it's a bug.

That's the only thing similar to what you're describing that I can think of, though...

I was wandering if there is a way on the Iphone app to have a repeating project. for example I would like to have a project, "to do this weekend" that would repeat every time weekend, that way I could put task to do on the weekend.
