OmniFocus for iPhone and iPad (Macworld 2010) -- TiPb Apps #1.3


You need to invest in a cheap clip on mic when you're doing these.... can't hear him properly.

@SteveG sorry :-/ I was trying, but the combination of being short and trying to be close enough to pick up audio wasn't working out too well. I think I get better in other videos.

Leanna's being nice. My hair was a mess and she didn't want to put off the viewers. Seriously, like Don King only scarier :(

I was deterred by the $19.99 price tag on this app. I'll wait for the ipad version to see if its worth buying. The features seem usefully enough, but i didn't really see a big difference between this app and appigo's todo app.

Looks like a good app but I didnt see anything that caught my attention and wanted me to purchase it above other apps. And the price point does not help at all.

The app looks great but I'm not sure about the price and what I'd be getting from it that I can't get with Appigo's Todo.

Overall, its a very professional looking application that's a great addition to the iBusiness Man who has money to burn. Part of it is definitely the name, as well as the price tag. I'm certain that I would get the most functionality out of it if I had it, but it is intimidating and I need 20 bucks for eating. I'm with Joseph on this one, I'll take Todo and won't second guess myself.

Awesome. Really a fantastic task management app, and its full value is realized when paired with the desktop application.

Nice interview Rene. Does make me want to give this product another look but based on the price I've been using Appigo's ToDo and have been very happy. Maybe when the iPad version arrives I'll consider it again.

Omnifocus is an amazing Mac as well as iPhone and soon to be hopefully iPad app. The interview comes nowhere near how powerful the app is. If you want to find out. Go and listen to Mac Power Users Podcast that features Omnifocus & Things. The ability to have start dates / times & due dates / times makes all the difference for me. No other app I have found does this.
