OmniFocus for iPhone v1.10 has been approved! Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
OmniFocus for iPhone v1.10 adds Forecast mode—a really handy way to see your upcoming work and if you’ve spread yourself a bit too thin. Also new in 1.10: direct support for the Omni Sync Server; shortcut buttons to go to an action's assigned project or context in the Action editor; an overhaul of the first launch and Sync Setup experiences; and a number of other improvements to the user interface.

[NOTE: If you're reading this within a few hours of my original post, your local App Store might not have the update yet. If that happens, just wait an hour or so and then try again: it will be there soon!]

We love hearing from you! You can reach us by tapping Send Feedback on the Settings screen, sending email to, tweeting to @omnifocus, or calling 1-800-315-OMNI or +1 206-523-4152.

  • OmniFocus for iPhone now includes Forecast mode.
  • Use OmniFocus for iPhone Forecast for an easy way to see when everything needs to be done. Deal with urgent items in the Overdue view, see what's on the agenda for today, and glance at the week ahead to balance your workload. (This feature replaces the Overdue and Due Soon lists.)
  • Tapping “View” on a Due Reminder alert now takes you to the Forecast screen, showing you all items which have become overdue at once.
  • Added “Go to Project” and “Go to Context” buttons to the Action and Project editors.
  • When assigning a Project or Context to an Action, search results are now presented in Library order rather than alphabetically.
  • When searching in the Project and Context pickers, Smart Match terms are underlined in the search results.
  • The Action editor rows for Start Date, Due Date, and Repeat now have clear buttons.
  • Fixed a bug where Repeat inspector’s Save button was missing when relaunching OmniFocus.
  • The Context location editor has been overhauled, and features an improved interface for assigning locations via address and business searches.
  • The Folder editor now interacts correctly with the onscreen keyboard in landscape orientation.
  • Untitled items are now correctly represented in Project, Action, and Context lists.
User Interface
  • The Quick Entry button on the sync progress screen is no longer one pixel too low.
  • Creating a new item in built-in Flagged perspective sets Flagged to On by default.
  • The image attachment viewer includes numerous improvements, including interaction in landscape orientation and zooming.
  • Due Reminder alerts now use “Close” as the title of the Cancel button when presented in the application. (This makes them consistent with the notifications presented by iOS.)
  • Fixed a regression where “All Actions” was incorrectly used as the title of Perspective screens, rather than the Perspective’s title.
  • Action groups within inactive Projects no longer incorrectly affect the due soon and overdue counts for their containing Folder.
  • Fixed a bug where the incompatible local and remote databases sync alert sheet didn’t work correctly in landscape orientation.
  • Made the capitalization consistent for all metadata labels shown in Action rows within lists.
  • Corrected a cosmetic problem where the Actions header was sometimes not correctly removed from the Context screen when completing the last action.
  • Fixed a bug where Done button may have been inadvertently removed after swipe deletion of a Context in the Contexts list.
  • The onscreen keyboard appears immediately when using the Project or Context pickers.
  • Fixed a bug where the layout of the attachment Edit button was incorrect in landscape orientation.
First Run and Settings
  • Added direct support for the Omni Sync Server. (Previously it was only possible to configure Sync with the Omni Sync Server by using the Advanced sync type.)
  • First Run and Sync Setup have been overhauled to provide a simpler, more pleasant experience.
  • The Sync, Safari Bookmarklet, and Database sections of the Settings screen have been simplified.
  • Fixed a bug where the “App Icon Badge Counts” section header became fuzzy after changing any of the application badge settings.
  • Fixed a bug where the layout of the sync progress bar was incorrect on the Settings screen when in landscape orientation.
  • The application’s badge counts the union of overdue, due soon, and flagged items. Items that are both flagged and overdue or due soon are no longer counted twice.
  • The Inbox badge count no longer includes completed items.
  • Items blocked by a future start date are once again excluded from the Inbox badge count.
  • Single-Action Lists now have status badges when inactive, dropped, completed, or blocked by a future start date.
  • Context badge counts no longer include items which are blocked by a future start date.
  • Folders’ remaining count incorrectly included Single-Action Lists.
  • Dropped Folders no longer appear as a possible move destination when the current view filter is not “Show All.”
  • Dropped Contexts are now correctly filtered in the Context move screen.
  • Errors from automatic sync sessions no longer interrupt you with an alert. Instead, the Sync button is badged. Tapping the Sync button will display the error alert and offer to retry the sync.
  • Corrected a regression which caused a crash if the sync credentials sheet was presented when modifying the app Settings.
  • Fixed a crash when tapping Cancel in the Quick Entry window while recording an audio attachment.
  • Fixed a crash when tapping Cancel in the Quick Entry when the application was launched using an OmniFocus add URL.
  • Fixed a bug where quickly toggling the repeat type and repeat interval could cause the inspector to hang.

First of all really really nice update, thanks a ton guys!

Maybe I missed something, but isn´t it possible to see the actions that have become available in the new forecast view. Is it only for actions with due dates?
Same question here. I've been spoiled by the Forecast view on the iPad and would like to see tasks with start dates in the view.

The new Forecast mode in v1.10 does not yet include the features recently introduced to Forecast in the iPad app, including viewing tasks by start date and viewing calendar appointments. (But more features are planned for future releases.)
That's great! I'm looking forward to messing with the dials ...

I'm particularly happy with "Added “Go to Project” and “Go to Context” buttons to the Action and Project editors."
Great update, and I am sure a lot of users will be happy with the introduction of the forecast view, albeit not up to iPad spec yet.

Just a clarification, is the perspectives home screen menu option now permanent? I may have missed this in the release notes, so apologies. I had it enabled before the update, but can't see where to remove it now that I can use the forecast option.


Ah, of course it would be permanent, as the Due Soon and Overdue options have been removed. Should have looked before posting.

Thanks so much!!

The forecast addition is great and it's a snap now to get to a project within context mode.

You folks are simply awesome. ...

Forecast + go-to-context/project buttons = Woohoo!

iPhone OF gets better and better. Such a pleasure.
Awesome, well done Ken + OF team! Love forecast for iPad, and now iPhone… just one more left! :)
Hey this is a very nice update, forecast view is cool! Thanks Omnigroup!
