Hours of recurring tasks
The iPhone OF seems unable to understand the time of the recurring tasks, at least when they are set to repeat after 1 day... when a recurring task is marked as completed in OF for iPhone the new task is created in the correct day, but always at 00:00, and not at the "right" time.
I'm the only one here or is OF for iPhone really time-blind as far as recurring actions are concerned?

Completing Recurring actions
Recurring items are synced up to my iPhone without any issues, However, if I complete them from my iPhone the times get messed up.

For instance I have a daily recurring task with a start time of 08:00 and due time of 22:00. Marking this task complete on my Mac generates a new task the following day starting at 08:00 and due at 22:00. This is as expected and good :) Syncing up to the iPhone at any step in the process perfectly reflects what is going on on my Mac.

However, when I complete the same daily recurring task from my iPhone a new task is created with a start date of 10:00 for todays date and a due date of 00:00 for tomorrow. Syncing this back to my Mac gives me the new task altogether with the original recurring item untouched. :confused:

The only way I have found to handle this behaviour is to only complete recurring items from my Mac :(

Apart from this single issue I am absolutely delighted with how OmniFocus works with my iPhone and I am not even bothered by [I]setting up[/I] recurring items from my Mac, if only I could [I]complete[/I] them from anywhere.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help resolve this issue.

Thanks for a great product

You are not the only one experiencing this. I posted the same issue then noticed yours :o

The Omni support has been duly informed :-)
A temporary workatound: set the interval repetition to 24 hours instead of 1 day.
It's not the same result, but is better than nothing.

I have just tested this out on 1.1.4 and it works perfectly.

Thankyou :)
