OmniFocus 1.9 for iPhone is now available! Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
OmniFocus 1.9 for iPhone improves the basic workflow by offering immediate access to View settings that display Next, Available, Remaining, or All items. It also improves the experience of choosing dates and setting up repeating items, and contains many other improvements to the interface.

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.

  • Dropped contexts can now be shown in the Contexts list, via the View button.
  • Projects and Action Groups are now flattened in the Contexts list to eliminate confusion caused by simultaneously navigating your context and action hierarchy.

  • When prompting for your Sync username and password, the username field is pre-filled when possible.

It was one of those annoying time-wasting bugs.

Have installed and like the layout with the next actions list... except:

Is there a way to move (or re-order) the Map to the bottom of the list or off the list?
I don't use Map.

I also do not use the map (I only have wifi, and would likely not use maps anyway, even if I could). I wish it were not there at all...especially since Perspectives, which I OFTEN use, is now pushed below the visible screen.

But otherwise, a very exciting release!
First thing I noticed/thought of -- please provide a way to move Map to the bottom of the list. Some people may like it where it is, so the options should be draggable. :)
Really nice update! A lot of little touches to enjoy :) I second what other post say about that it would be nice to somehow move MAP to the buttom.
Looks great so far, other than I too would prefer it if the Perspectives menu were not pushed to the bottom. Other option to make room would be to move Search to the top of the list, but the user would need to pull down to make it visible. I've seen multiple iOS apps that use this effectively.
Just wanted to remind folks that we keep an eye on the forums as we're able, but if you want to be sure that your feedback gets recorded, you're going to want to email the support ninjas. Thanks!
