  • Such A Great Help !!

    By L E E E E E E
    Thank you for one of my most important Apps. Everyone needs it !!
  • I’m not buying more than once!!

    By Duber56243
    OmniFocus has been a staple in my personal and business life for several years, and is honestly one of the apps that I can’t function without. The initial price tag is high, but being able to sync across my MacBook, iPad, and iPhone is worth the investment. However, I will pay for it one time - not multiple times. When OF3 came out, the system no longer recognizes my username or email address, basically forcing me to purchase it all over again, which I will not do. Guess I will be looking for another task management app
  • False advertising

    By johnmb123
    I purchased this app, after already owning the Mac version, because it said that family sharing worked with up to 6 people. When I went to share it with my wife, so we could track tasks for an upcoming party together, I found out that this wasn’t true. The app does nothing until you make an in-app purchase, which doesn’t work with family sharing, so my $50 was just for me to get notifications on my phone.

    By ChangeChameleon
    “Some features require an in app purchase” Ok, let’s install and see what we get. Nothing. Nada. This app requires a $50 in-app purchase or a $10/Month subscription. No free tier. Only option is a 14 day trial. Extremely deceptive to show up in the App Store as free. Developer needs to be more clear in their description, and Apple needs to change how apps are displayed in the App Store if they require a purchase or subscription to function.
  • Unimpressed

    By Corsair650
    Cumbersome and interface not entirely intuitive
  • Omnigroup has never lead me wrong.

    By MikeCalGov2018
    Omnifocus is the GTD app that candidate ”Get Things Done”. I've been using OmniFocus since its inception and am a second generation use. No matter how small the MacOS market was, I pittied PC users for their lack of access to OmniFocus. It's not about just GTD, its how you get things done and while making it stupidly easy to use and learn, incredibly customizable with limitless potential. In all seriousness, I can’t imagine why they'd buy FileMaker or Claris but don't own the single best Mac exclusive software developer. Honestly, considered your continued innovation, logical progression and continuously constant updates, I'm more than happy to see you independent. While your software is on the expensive side, I find it a no issue with that especially since you haven't adopted a a subscription model and due to your top notch support.for current and legacy products and willingness to listen your community. My planning philosophy is based on all the software and apps you produce. It was just the solution that most parallel with they way I want to think. Kudos Omnigroup and thank you for OmniFocus (and leaving omnipresence free, I don't know how to find an alternative).
  • iOS version is a FAIL

    By ybfree
    Apparently they have two different graphic design teams working on the Mac version and the iOS version. The Mac version is WAY easier to use. iOS version? Ugly as sin with ugly white UI that presents a "wall of text". Pro tip; take a look at “Wunderlist" for some design tips. Oh, one more thing, why in the heck can you not add a action directly into a sub folder?! Are you seriously telling me that you have to add it to the bottom of a lonnnnng list and drag it up and then re-position it? FAIL
  • Grrrrr

    By Vitality Counseling
    I spent a fair amount of money to purchase the pro version and now I can’t even access it with IOS 11. Very disappointing!
  • Lots of crashes

    By Ki2rin
    In so many times, omnifocus suggests reporting the crash report. But even worse, reporting page doesn’t allow me to send the message! (Send button is always disabled.)
  • The best of the best

    By Antiduplicity
    Omnifocus can be whatever I want it to be. It has the flexibility and the power to serve up my tasks anyway I want. I get alerts and a shopping list when i go to the store. I get my morning list every morning. The correct list of what I can do and need to do shows up when I need it. It is clean, solid, syncs quickly everywhere and the support is second to none.
  • Apple-like...

    By Dov+
    ...In that I don’t really enjoy using it, but since it’s the still best option, I will pay a large sum of money to get the job done. Please consider rethinking the home screen layout, it just isn’t very useful and makes it hard to see what I need to at a glance. Get another UI person to come up with some ideas or something. I don’t know, I’m just an idea guy. Please consider bringing over the colors/bolder fonts from the Mac app, that while aren’t perfect, still add a lot in terms of visual cohesion and the ability to make sense of things in a somewhat cluttered interface. Please use more white space so it’s easier to tell items apart. It just looks like a cluttered mess of text most of the time. This is still the best option, and really the only app out there that can scale with the volume and complexity of your projects. Also, review is great for gtd. But please, pretty please, overhaul the interface with an emphasis on clarity, usability, and easy differentiation between items on the screen. This should have been the focus of the update, imo. What I’m paying for instead is iPhone XR screen size, the ability of the app to not crash constantly like OF2 does now, and tags. Which are great. Making great apps is a hard thing and you folks are trying your hardest, but I doubt I’m the only one who thinks the interface could be improved. Thanks for reading.
  • Stuck in the Subscription

    By piercedpinky
    App requires you to purchase a 14- day free trial at which you will be billed after 14 days. I tried the app for 1 day and hate it and want out of the subscription but companies make it so difficult to get out!
  • Great app

    By Dougnova
    Can't imagine trying to keep on top of things without it.
  • Things is better, for less money

    By PolarBearKev
    This app is sorely overpriced considering you can get the same functionality and more from Things by Cultured Code. Not to mention the entire user experience is flawed. It’s like a haphazard mess of elements. I would rather pay for Things and get a far superior user experience, with far superior features. This app is ridiculously overpriced.
  • No readonly mode

    By WillyShark!
    I bought a license for Mac, but can’t ever read it from ios
  • Irreplaceable

    By FM_M
    I use OmniFocus for deep project tracking, and it’s positively irreplaceable. For a long time I thought I needed to pick one to-do manager for everything, and I tried to pick The Perfect One... and then try to shoehorn everything into it. I finally realized that the right tool for the task sometimes means similar tools - hey, I have 3 different sized needle-nosed pliers in my toolbox, why not the same idea in software? I use OmniFocus for work projects; from overview to unlimited detail, I can see what I need when I need it. I can jot things quickly on my phone when they occur to me, and then organize them later on my Mac, and it all syncs perfectly and instantaneously. With the Pro purchase (well worth it to me), I use custom views and add client logos to their project views to make zeroing in on them easier. And to keep from being overwhelmed when actually working, I can easily use the Focus tools to see and stay in just the parts I’m working on today. Overall, it’s a fantastic tool. There’s more complex elements that I just don’t care about (due dates, dependencies, stuff like that), but they’re easy to just ignore; OmniFocus doesn’t force me to work their way, they let me work my way. Great company, great history, great tools. 5 stars.
  • No longer supporting scumbags

    By Moshfosh
    After a nearly $50 upgrade after each update you want to start charging a subscription fee? I think I’d rather bite the bullet and take the highly cost saving subscription from Todoist. Your service has become laughable at this point. I’d call you a joke but I’m not sure you understand what a punchline is at this point.
  • Part of my every day existence for years

    By Bone +2, +3 vs Yorkies
    I use this iOS version as well as the Mac version. It’s been part of my every day life for many years. I am not a hard core GTD person by any stretch, but I read the book once many years ago and have held on to some of the ideas. That and OmniFocus and it’s really helped me stay on top of things. It’s very open ended yet intuitive. Recommended.
  • Awesome app!

    By puppya
    I love this app and hope you continue to make it user-friendly to VoiceOver users.
  • OmniFocus is Life Giving!

    By Sean O'Donoghue
    OmniFocus is by far the most beneficial app on my phone. It allows me to worry less and do more. It helps me sort thoughts, organize, and move them to actionable steps. At the surface it may seem complicated but this is the best process I’ve found to help me get things done and I believe you will too!
  • Not for screen reader users

    By tbabinszki
    Until the previous version this app was an example of how to make something usable for people with visual impairments. Screen reader usability was broken so bad in this version that it is no longer possible to add all features of a new action. It forced me to find another productivity tool.
  • Best to do app - I’d love better calendar integration

    By 333M333
    I’ve tried every single task management app that exists for iPhone or Mac. OmniFocus is the best, especially now that it supports tags. The ability to set start dates rather than (or in addition to) due dates also makes a big difference. You can also set reminders independently of whether and when you set a due date. My only complaint is that the calendar integration is lacking. The app’s forecast view is really limited. There’s no way to way to view OF tasks in a calendar app.
  • killer app

    By RoosterLove
    excellent project management app.
  • Falling behind

    By Finson331
    This was the app to have. No longer, it isn’t keeping up. Part of the GTD method and just life in general is delegation. And yet there is no way to share todos, or to see when someone has accomplished said task. So you might think, fine I will use OF3 for personal tasks and another for delegated tasks except they have killed the calendar sync feature. So I can not use a master calendar with various todo managers all in one place. Ultimately it is just an overpowered version of clear.
  • Too expensive if you consider you just paid for the expensive desktop very

    By Kyle311
    Enough said! The Mac desktop version is great, but the iOS version is clunky and slow if you compare it to Things or Todoist, not to mention, the $35 price tag.
  • Still no true black mode

    By LeoVogel
    Still no support for true black on iPhone X. Complete disregard for the benefits of current devices.
  • Another bonus: top notch support

    By Stephenmk555
    This is obviously my favorite system for following GTD, but another thing that sets OmniFocus apart is the support. I emailed with a question and had it answered quickly *and* learned something I can use for other apps. This app team rocks.
  • Lots of Hype

    By Mark Robey
    Purchased this because of all the hype around it. It seems to do the same thing as Wunderlist and Wunderlist looks and functions MUCH better.
  • Can’t read project names..

    By MyUserReview
    I can’t read the complete project names and their folders as I could on OmniFocus 2 (e.g. two-row view). Fix it please...
  • Price of upgrade not worth it

    By Tp42023
    If you stand for older and most recent version side-by-side (which you can because the ‘update’ is a new download) you can see that there are a few tweaks and superficial changes from the previous version, but these simply do not justify the price of the upgrade. This is especially aggravating as the desktop version is also costly.
  • Good. Has bugs though.

    By eazyrooster
    It’s a great OmniFocus app. If you like OmniFocus you’ll like it. Def the best for a GTD or similar system. App doesn’t have all the bugs ironed out. For example, on the iPad you can long press and rearrange the order of tasks, but this doesn’t work on iPhone. If you do it on iPhone the app acts like it’s working and you reposition the task then it just pops back to where it was every time. Not ideal. Other little UI bugs like that are present and seem to be more of an issue in the iPhone app than in the iPad app.
  • No ability to change order of flagged tasks, kills it, there are better options.

    By Not Meeeeeeeeeee
    Why we still can’t change the order of flagged tasks in 2019 is anyone’s guess but I’m fed up, going elsewhere.
  • Wow.. wow.. and SMH..

    By MakkieRuby
    So I'm still VERY new to all this therefore I spent A LOT of time researching! To find the BEST and why... Who has what features, and the most flaws! Dead give away in the reviews what is true by the "repeat complaints" and/or "compliments"... This way I know I'm gonna waste wayyyyy more time trying it out or possibly spending my hard earned money on it... Then I end up hating it! Bc I AM the that person that will fight for the refund!! I've worked in Customer Service for 12 years so I don't lose lol!) Anywho..... I'm intrigued to say the least. The reviews alone make it perfectly clear OM has revived themselves with version 3..... As far as features go that is!!! The simple fact that hundreds of people have been either RE-CHARGED to use an app they already paid for, just because it finally Upgraded (Which is beyond absurd!!) Or go without those new features... Forced my hand to refuse giving your company more money! Can you imagine all these app developers friggin charging paid customers, LOYAL PEOPLE THAT ALREADY MADE YOU WHO YOU ARE IN YOUR BUSINESS WORLD... AGAIN!!! Every time they keep up with the competition and do what they're supposed to do. YEAH FRIGGIN RIGHT!! I'm actually surprised at Apple as well for allowing such BS!
  • Cannot connect to iTunes Store

    By Joshua4617
    This is all I see and I’m unable to use the app. The read only mode works flawlessly but I’m unable to start a trial or buy it.
  • Tags with location make it worth the price

    By Latte1869
    I set up tags for common locations, such as work, school, home and stores where I shop. For some, I set leaving reminders. For all of them, I set arrival reminders. Then, when I add an item, I can add all relevant tags to set off location based reminders. It is worth it just for this feature.
  • Crash...Crash...Crash

    By 1crismf
    All this app does is crash after the last update, it’s truly ridiculous for the amount of money you pay.
  • A Must Have For Productivity!

    By [ 365 ]
    I recently upgraded from OmniFocus 2 to OmniFocus 3. At first I was a bit disappointed. Stylistically the app doesn’t look much different than the previous version until after a few days later when I realized that there is so much under the hood. In fact it is a brand new an incredibly powerful productivity tool that has maintained the same familiarity that its users have grown accustomed to, while adding tremendous amount of power and flexibility, so much so that I would say whether you follow GTD or any other system, or you want to make your own OmniFocus can support that. The note field is absolutely incredible. You can add an email and it would display as if you are viewing it in your email client. Tags are incredibly powerful and easy. Custom perspectives can organize your data however you like to view it . While you can customize the app to such degree that it no longer looks like when you first got it, it is incredibly powerful and useful right out of the box. Another feature that I absolutely love is the Review Perspective which is so unique to OmniFocus and not offered by any other productivity app on the market. I can keep writing but all of this is a testament to the OmniGroup for their ability and understanding of how to make us more productive while enjoying the process. Many, many Thanks!!!
  • Love-hate relation

    By Quark Gluon Plasma
    Omnifocus and I have never really clicked, even though I am well-versed in GTD, and have spent more time with it than any other task manager. In principle, it does what I want. In practice, I find it very hard to use. The user interface is needlessly complex, and pulls attention away from your tasks. There are dark corners where the way it works can only be determined by experiment. iOS and Mac versions do not always work the same way. For example, the built-in Flagged views sort completely differently on the two platforms. There is an entire cottage industry devoted to telling people how to use it, and there’s a reason. It is slow, and many features are clunky. Drag and drop is very awkward. I would make it a program of last resort for most people.
  • where’s my app i paid a lot of money for my app not a subscription one single payment app

    By 243212 chiky
    i payed for this app already it cost me 20$ I don’t want to buy the new one i just want to install my app the one i have the right to have i paid por it I don’t want to update i just want the one i had I didn’t pay for a subscription or any thing like that please give me my app !!!!
  • Great app. Worth the money.

    By 2747483838374
    Great app. Intuitive interface, integrates well with calendars, and its easy to get up and running. To the developers: a feature I’d love to see is when you’re currently in a folder or project, adding an inbox item automatically sets the project as the project you were in when you added the inbox item. It would be a fair assumption by the app, and cuts down time it takes to manually add the item’s project.
  • Best there is

    By Wazzles
    No app is perfect, regardless of what kind it is or what its purpose is. OmniFocus is no different. It’s got its things where I feel it could improve. With that said, it’s still the best out there in my opinion. It’s a little too pricey I think, especially compared with competitors. I’m sure many people won’t even give it a try because of the price. But I bought it anyway, and I’m still satisfied with the product. I tried Things 3, and although it’s a nice app, it just wasn’t as full featured as I needed. And something about it just didn’t lend itself toward helping to motivate me to be productive. OmniFocus, however, has done its todo job well, as well as helped motivate me. Anyway, my suggestion, don’t purchase unless you’re committed to doing it. Try it for 2 weeks and give it a fair shake. If it works for you, congrats. It did for me.
  • Good, but lacks calendar or reminder sync

    By Bongo the Bear
    I'm a new OmniFocus user and I like it so far, but the lack of full synch with iOS & Mac calendar is a serious drawback. I'd love to be able to look at my calendar and see what OmniFocus items are scheduled for each day. Reminder sync instead would work -- maybe even better, at least for me. Add either or both, please.
  • This app literally just showed up on my iPhone and iPad

    By ORTHODOX1024
    I’m really starting to get fed up with the security flaws of IOS. This app just showed up on the last screen of my home screen on my iPad Pro and iPhone XS. It was hidden on the last screen so I didn’t know it was even there or how long it has been on either. It shows up in my purchase history as well. I have no idea if this app can be used to “hack” information. I don’t know if it has something to do with malware. I noticed in my browsing history that Omni’s website has been visited numerous times as well. It’s all over my website data, and history. It’s another app that just freaks me out. I don’t know why it’s still showing up in my account. It makes me furious. I’m sure the app does what it’s supposed to do though. Any feedback would be very appreciated.
  • Great Product Terrible Licensing Structure

    By RyanMiller141
    Unfortunately I thought I found the app I’ve been looking for, with great features it was exactly what I wanted. I purchased the app after using it for a day. I assumed that I would be able to access my information from the app and my Mac however that’s not true. You will need to purchase the software twice to access the same information cross platform which will cost about 100$ that’s with a student discount. Do yourself a favor and skip this product, don’t allow companies to think it’s okay to license a product like this. You clearly need to be able to access this app cross platform to get any value from it. Don’t nickel and dime your customers, I would and unfortunately did tell everyone I know how great this app was it’s to bad that the business behind it isn’t. I will be sure to retract all of the positive things I told people regarding this app. Why pay full price for something twice...
  • No support for RTF & In-line Images in Notes!

    By TechFanSF
    I don’t recommend buying/using OF3 IOS until they support RTF and Inline images in Notes, like what is possible on their current OF Mac App. Any goodness you make in an action or project note on MAC version will not come through on their IOS version (iPhone/iPad). The images and their structure within a note get torn apart and the images get stuffed into an Attachments Tab. And if you are creating notes on IOS you will not be able to use Rich Text RTF.
  • Longtime omnifocus fan. V3 seems like a big step back -am I missing something?

    By dissappointedv3
    I was able to update to v3 finally. Took forever to figure out. Apparently you have of have v2 installed to upgrade. Now that I’ve paid the $20 it seems like this “upgrade” eliminated the features I was using. I just don’t understand- for years you all had a great product - I was a loyal customer. This app v3 is a mess. Incredibly confusing. I wanted to be able to move tasks into nested sub tabs and clear tasks once they’re checked inside project view. This seems like a straightforward and basic functionality. It was easy to do in v2. Perhaps possible in v3 but not easy to figure out. Will keep trying. So disappointed!
  • Watch app does not work

    By portalkeeper
    Comes with an Apple Watch app that seems to be built on old versions of the watch SDK. It doesn't reliably update with current data or sync changes back to the phone.
  • Prior app no longer usable

    By powermacguy
    With the upgrade to 3, the app I was once able to use now locks me out from using it anymore. This is a bad upgrade plan.
  • Great app, sluggish performance.

    By oscar2137
    Omnifocus is the biggest, most featured, most editable and flexible GTD app I’ve ever seen and it doesn’t require subscription (only very expensive single in app payment). But there are a lot of bugs (like with navigating, or 3D Touch on projects to review can crash all system), performance is sluggish (turns on ok, but adding task, editing projects, navigating through app and similar things works horrible and buggy) and I don’t recommend this app on everything else than newest iPhones with A11 and A12. I’ve paid 40$ and I regret it. Much more prefer TickTick (subscription) or Things (single iap, but doesn’t have nice features like contexts). Rating is low because of one of the most important rules in code - it has to work smoothly and not bugging.
