Where is the companion app online? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I use my own iPhone, a Mac at home, PC at work, and a variety of computers at a variety of other locations.

Am sure I am not alone in this, and am sure the future of any application--even a simple app that does a nice job of managing task lists--is to be device independent and at least sync-able or usable across devices via the web.

So, where is the OmniFocus device independent online app that syncs with my iphone and Mac? I love GTD, and I love Omnifocus, but if I can't use Omnifocus in every context in which I find myself, why bother--esp at a price premium?

Yes, I have my iPhone app with me at all times--but have any of you tried planning out all the projects and tasks related to a project with your thumbs? I have. It is not fun. Do I really need to lug a Mac around with me to do this?

Why is my only real option ToodleDo? Only reason I haven't yet made the switch is that ToodleDo has such silly name and 'fluffy' looking interface online. The functionality is all there and more, and with my wife recently signing on to Toodledo we could share peronsonal tasks very easily by using it. Do I really have to ditch a nice app like Omnifocus b/c it won't make the leap to the internet?

"Omnifocus: When you're ready to get serious about personal productivity." Whatever. ToodleDo may have a weak name, but it is miles ahead. When will Omnifocus get serious?

Should add that I'm only expressing my frustration b/c I like Omnifocus a lot, and really don't want to leave.
I've been using OmniFocus for 2 years. I also use the iPhone app... which is serviceable, but slow at best and you are right, it is too clunky to spend much time in that app!

We do need a web interface. Just something that will interface with our database on the server, or wherever it happens to reside. Something simple and fast!

Please? I too love OF but the iPhone app does not (and will not ever) be extremely functional due to the processing power of the phone. And remoting in to my mac isn't always an option...
