I want desktop apps that communicate and share their data online, whether that be for syncing devices, backup, social aspects, or whatever. To me, this seems like the best of both worlds.
It seems to me that a good solution for OmniFocus would be to provide a hybrid cloud environment by syncing the list items to a server. They could work with a third party to develop an Android app that can access data, and they wouldn't even have to brand it as an Omni app. It would not need to provide the same functionality of the desktop app, just a way to view the data and do some minimal editing.
It doesn't seem like a major obstacle to overcome relative to being shut out of one of the currently dominant mobile platforms. It would also allow OG the flexibility to respond to any new mobile platform that comes along while continuing to maintain the OS X app as the shining star of GTD tools. In other words, all we need is a simple way to access our to-do list on this little screen and the issues is sufficiently mitigated––that should be a given rather than a major obstacle. Not having it is a deficit. Heck, they could probably even use google Tasks as the intermediary and they would really be in the flow.
