OmniFocus 1.16 introduces Background Sync Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
OmniFocus 1.16 July 3, 2013
OmniFocus for iPhone 1.16 adds Background Sync options and the ability to send actions via email.

OmniFocus for iPhone requires iOS 6.1 or later.

Background Sync
With Background Sync, you'll have the most current information in your pocket as you go about your day. Add your most frequent locations to the Background Sync list, and OmniFocus on your iPhone or iPod Touch will sync automatically when you arrive or leave.

Context Locations
Business search results are now retrieved from Apple instead of Google.
Business search results are now sorted by proximity.

Email Actions
Added ability to send actions via email, as in OmniFocus for iPad.

Miscellaneous
Improved copy and paste of Actions.
Fixed a couple crashes.
Changed the Inbox badge count calculation to match OmniFocus on the Mac.
Improved handling of audio interruptions.
Added button on Forecast event details to view the event in Calendar.

This is really very cool. Nice upgrade.
 
Sorry to be dense, but I assume Omnifocus iPhone needs to have been run at least once for the background sync to work?
 
'Improved copy and paste of Actions'

How is this improved ?

Yes: you have to set up background syncing within the app. (And it can't sync until you configure a sync service, which also happens within the app.)

You can now press and hold anywhere on an action row of a table to get a popover which offers to Cut, Copy, or Paste. (Previously, this only worked when pressing and holding on the action's checkbox.)
 
Hi Omnifocus Team,


Curious, why not use the interal clock to add a setting which would allow the user to pick background sync time intervals? This way, every 3 hours, our iPads and iPhones would sync.


Thanks,
Nick

Probably because the iOS SDK doesn't allow that?
