OmniFocus 2 for iPhone is part of the OmniFocus ecosystem for me.

I do a lot of planning and editing on the Mac version. Then it is easy to sync with Omni Sync Services to OF2 for iPhone or OF for iPad.

I use the iPhone version when I am not at the office. This includes running around from meeting to meeting, office to office, or out on errands. If I need to quickly capture something on the go, I can easily whip out the iPhone and enter it into OF2 for iPhone.

I also use OF for iPad when I don't have my Mac. But I can do some project reviews and planning when I am on-the-go. Its larger screen format gives me the luxury of doing things with OmniFocus that will feel small and cramped in the iPhone version.

You don't necessarily need to have all three versions but it makes for a great trio.

Get OF2 for iPhone if you have to be away from your Mac a lot and need your task and project lists with you. It is also perfect for capturing when you're on-the-go.

Get OF for iPad if you are also away from your Mac but need to do some more project and task planning.

Get OF for Mac if you are desk-bound and near your Mac a lot.
