iCloud support? [A: Possibly in future, not at launch. See thread.] Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

Would be cool if Omnifocus would someday support syncing over iCloud.
Someday being when iOS 5 comes out ;-)

+1 for iCloud support.
I'd prefer to have all my apps sync to iCloud than have to use clouds all over the place for various apps.
If it meant that OmniFocus could have 'team' functionality and the ability to see another person's shared OmniFocus projects then I'd happily rebuy OmniFocus for both my Mac and my iDevices and those of my colleagues.

I love OmniFocus and we make do with sharing the OmniSync Server (Our own WebDAV was a little too slow when abroad and using our iDevices), but even now we occasionally suffer with horrible sync collisions. I know you're not supposed to do this, but OmniFocus kicks seven shades out of Things.

Also; OmniOutliner with iCloud support would be fantastic.
Heck, everything with iCloud support, including OmniPlan!

Hopefully we see more 'sharing' functionality soon as well.
Talked with Ken earlier today: iCloud support for all our document-based apps is something of a no-brainer. It's less clear whether the design of the service will support the needs of an app like OmniFocus.

We're looking into it, though, and even if it turns out to not be well-suited to OmniFocus sync, we'll keep the Omni Sync Server available for customers to use for sync at no additional charge.

Stay tuned, in other words.
Thanks for the reply, Brian. If only more developers were like The Omni Group; Amazing.
right now I am syncing omnifocus with mobileme - when mobileme is no longer available and I switch to iCloud this won't be a simple "seemless" transfer for current mobileme users then right?

I received this email from Apple regarding my mobileme account:

What does this mean for you as a MobileMe member?

When you sign up for iCloud, you'll be able to keep your MobileMe email address and move your mail, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks to the new service.

Your MobileMe subscription will be automatically extended through June 30, 2012, at no additional charge. After that date, MobileMe will no longer be available.

When iCloud becomes available this fall, we will provide more details and instructions on how to make the move. In the meantime, we encourage you to learn more about iCloud.

Yes! OmniFocus in Apples iCloud would be fantastic!

In the short-term it might be a "bummer" (since you just created the fantastic Omnifocus sync setup yourself), but in the long term (if it works out) it's less of a 'burden' on Omnigroup, and an addition for customers that loves uniformity/streamlining and all that rubbish. :-P

*fingers crossed*

Thanks for a fantastic GTD app!
Mac, iPad, iPhone.
I'd like to see this too. WHile I'm not likely to switch over to Things, looking at their iCloud sync is instructive. It's a lot like what you see in address book and calendar on the Mac/iPhone/iPad. When you make a change on one, it's on all the others in a few minutes. This would be a lot better than the sync startup scheme that is used in OF on iPHone and iPad.
