Siri + OmniFocus [Siri support added in OmniFocus for iPhone v1.13] Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I just thought I'd drop a note of a new handy discovery I've made. Please excuse me if I'm the last to figure it out. I've been playing more and more with Siri on the iPhone since Apple purchased it a while back. Recently I discovered I could easily have Siri send a reminder to OmniFocus via the mail interface. This works very well when I'm driving or in a hurry and need to record something. I just tell Siri to remind me blah blah blah, and a few minutes later 'blah blah blah' is sitting in my inbox waiting for me to deal with it.
Nice idea. Sadly US only for Siri Assistant.
I do this now with Dragon Dictation; it's not all voice control but much better than typing the whole thing. iOS 5 might make the Siri way available to all.
Hi: has there been any thought by Omni regarding the integration of Siri do use OmniFocus? I'd love to be able to ask Siri "What's the next thing I have to do today?" and get a valid answer back from mining OmniFocus, potentially differentiated based on context/perspective.

We certainly watched the announcement yesterday. I can't speak to our future plans, though.
I'd love to see Siri integration for OmniFocus (of course if it's possible). I wonder if there's a way to override it to use OmniFocus instead of their new Reminders app. That would be money!

A week from now I'll ask Siri "How will you integrate with Omnifocus?"...I'll let everyone know what s/he says... ;-)
Added a few votes for Siri integration (if it were to be made available for third-party developers) to our database. I'd encourage anyone else who'd like to see that email us here.

I would absolutely love Siri integration for Omnifocus. If nothing else being able to simply add new tasks into your inbox would be incredibly useful.
Hmm... what would Siri do when you ask it "what's today's forecast?"

Does it show you the weather or your OmniFocus Forecast?
