Much-loved task management app OmniFocus has received a new look with the release of version 2.1 for Mac, bringing the app in line with the design language of OS X 10.10 Yosemite. The update also brings new extensions, offering tie-ins a widget for Notification Center and sharing options in compatible apps across your Mac.
Here are the major points of what's new:
- Vibrant Interface — We adjusted the OmniFocus interface to better match OS X Yosemite. That included making new toolbar icons, adjusting the appearance of some other elements, and incorporating vibrancy where appropriate.
- Extensions — OmniFocus for Mac now has Today and Share extensions, just like on iOS. To enable the Today extension, click Edit at the bottom of Notification Center.
- Sharing — In addition to accepting content from other apps, the text of actions can be shared from OmniFocus using the share button in the toolbar.
- Tear-off View Options Popover — When the View Options popover is open, it can be dragged away from the window and exist on its own.
- Find and Replace — Find and Replace now works in actions as well as their notes.
- Help — In addition to being up to date with info on the new features, OmniFocus Help has a new look that should be easier to use. Scrolling is also smoother on retina screens.
- OmniOutliner Import — When importing from OmniOutliner columns can once again be mapped to OmniFocus fields.
- Localized Date Parsing — If OmniFocus can't parse a date using localized relative date names, it will try using English relative date names.
The new version of OmniFocus is available for $39.99 for the standard version of $79.99 for the pro version, and can be tried out for free for 14 days. And because we like things that sync with our mobile devices, there's also a $29.99 iPad OmniFocus app and a $19.99 iPhone OmniFocus app.
