You need to do what Brian suggested for the other poster. I just added an action to my database on my elderly iPad 2 and synced. Done in 3 seconds, and I've got 1,196 projects and 15,682 actions in my database. Yes, a sync where the entire database needs to be rewritten back to the server will take an appreciable amount of time over a slow connection. With my use patterns, those syncs rarely happen at obtrusive times.

Whoa what a lot of actions. Are you archiving them when they are complete or are they all really still active?

I currently have 618 Actions in 75 Projects which currently equates to 23 Zip files (waiting for 61 mins to pass ;)

About half of them are complete. Omni's archive feature doesn't meet my needs, which is unfortunate, as most of those completed actions could be archived.

Looks like it's time to drain the Inbox swamp again :-)

wow whpalmer4, that's crazy. Could you write some examples on how detailed is your database? It's hard to imagine what your projects are. 700 active it's A LOT.

OmniFocus for iPhone v1.16 adds support for geofenced background syncing. Turning this on will keep your iPhone database from getting behind, which should greatly help with its startup and sync times.
