OmniFocus for iPhone custom development Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
The fact that OmniFocus actually exists is due tremendously to the great applescript interface that Omni made available for OmniOutliner.

Does the OF for iPhone register any services? I don't know all the terms for the iPhone development, but in the way you can pass data from one app to another?

I saw another thread suggesting a mini-app for voice notes that would feed to OF. If there is an iPhone API for OF this would be relatively easy for someone else to suplement. Same with other apps to possibly throw stuff into the Inbox (if there developers were interested in that)
Individual iPhone applications are sandboxed for security and stability purposes, with no direct way to communicate. Also, you can't run two applications at once (other than a few system-provided "blessed" applications - basically, the phone and ipod apps) so that also gets in the way of communication.

Certainly there is no equivalent to AppleScript.
