Been using OF on the iPad since June and I've never noticed whether the badge syncs with the forecast or not before. For me it doesn't matter. I know I have more tasks that I can do than I have time....

The inability to create perspectives on the iPhone can be partially solved. It sounds like you have a Mac. I had to borrow one. I use the iPad which has the same shortcoming. I used OF on my iPad for...

What will be the next thing you do after the Wilkins meeting? Summarize the meeting? Add actions resulting from the meeting?

I have found, for my use, that unless I have the time to process the action it is better to just put it into the inbox until I have the time to process it. Otherwise it does tend to disappear. I have...
