;-)

True that... local notifications could easily push additions for items that were rolling over at a time... But Things does this on a daily basis and with OmniFocus items can have times so it would be more work.

So it's a choice between "Just no it's not updated when the app is running" or "We'll push some updates and make it closer but it may not be absolutely correct." Probably best to understand the behavior and deal with it... "If you need an absolutely correct number you should just launch the app..." :-)

A little late to this discussion - but for someone who wants the most accurate information all of the time, they probably didn't buy the wifi only in the first place. Omnifocus is a good app, but you lose the efficacy of the badge if I have to open the app for it to be accurate. Privacy shouldn't be an issue - we're just talking about pushing numbers.
