iOS App Reviews

  • 5 Stars coming out of the gate!

    By T2nu
    I'm still looking over the software and will write more about the APP, but this company has the best of the best. Written documentation, trial periods even in the IOS APP! These two things alone show promise that my days of hunting for a good task APP may finally be over. I sure hope so. I'll be back...
  • Cumbersome UX, Disappointed by OmniGroup

    By Faraz Yashar
    I’ve used Omnifocus for years on my Mac (since v1.6 maybe?), but it’s time to say good bye. Inputting tasks, a cornerstone of GTD, has become a painful task itself on iOS. To enter a task with a project, context, and due date, you’ll have to endure umpteen taps and a some god awefully unintuitive wheel-based date selection interfaces. Perhaps I should blame Apple for making that the Gold Standard™ of date and time UX, but OmniGroup should know better... Granted I’ve also been spoiled by my ability to add times to tasks using natural language input on Omnifocus for macOS (e.g. “Tomorrow night” for a date.) Adding a task should be as simple as typing “Follow Up for Diagrams #Workflow1 @Work next Friday”. Altogether, I feel like Omnifocus for iOS gets in the way of my productivity. Along with these gripes on iOS, I can’t justify spending another $30 for an app that’s completely locked into the Apple ecosystem and lacks a web interface. I’ve plan to migrate to something cross-platform, even if that means paying a few dollars a month for it.
  • Disappointed

    By Gamma401
    I am so disappointed in this recent update. I thought the move to IOS11 was going to be the big one. Finally adding multiple contexts, multiple item selection, manual task ordering, multiple context locations, and other major and glaring issues that have remained unaddressed for years. I have held out hope for this application for so long, but the only reason I haven’t switched to another application is the other two best options don’t offer hierarchical tasks or Mac sister applications. I really want to like this program, for it to be the linchpin of my system, but I don’t and it just... isn’t.
  • Long time fan...kinda disappointed

    By spbennie
    Great app...does a ton. Developers are awesome. Still doesn’t support batch editing of tasks on ipad or iphone. Deal breaker for me as I don’t always get to all my tasks and don’t use my mac for work. Changing the defer dates for each task at the end of the day is maddening. Once I see this feature I may come back for a try. If you don’t need batch editing, then buy this app as it’s the best. If you do need it, try Things 3, 2Do, or Todoist.
  • Alerts

    By Working to get rich
    Wish I could select a louder and more attention grabbing alert for my location based alerts! Very rarely do they alert me! Other than that it's a great app
  • $43.99 but you have to pay extra to use it?!

    By Wikisz
    $43.99 but you have to pay extra to use it by "in-app purchases". Thanks but no thanks. I don't like being "tricked" into downloading.
  • Not perfect, but the best productivity app out there

    By kyledjohannes
    I have tried many, many different productivity and to-do apps before I first bought the $20 iPhone version of OF over 3 years ago. I can't remember them all by name, but I was married to Google Tasks and really wanted something that synced with it. The options were limited. Then I was just going for the simple and free apps - but they left me feeling unorganized and cluttered even in their simplicity. I couldn't organize things well or have due dates or projects, etc. I knew of OF but didn't want to spend the money originally. But once I did I have never turned back. I have been using OF for so long, at times I think I would be lost without it. I love the organization it offers, with Projects (different types), folders, etc. Deferred dates were confusing at first but now I love them. A while back, I shelled out the additional $20 for the Universal app to use on an iPad and then one I started using OF at work I bought the Pro version and wish I had done it sooner! The custom perspectives are very helpful to keep personal and work projects and items separate. The Reminders capture is also very helpful. I used to use the Forecast feature but I am slowly moving away from using due dates and mostly using daily reviews to flag items that need completed. Then the custom perspectives come into play to keep be focused. But OF is not perfect...there are a few features that I wish they had...but they listen to you and have great customer service. I have had many questions and I always get an email response within a couple of days. Has it always been the answer the I was expecting? No, but they seem to be open to implementing ideas if enough people request them. It will be interesting to see whether or not they "succumb" to the subscription model after I have paid $40 for a mobile only app (I would purchase the OSX version if I was on my computer enough to justifying, but I am not).
  • I payed 20 dollars for this app...

    By RustVel
    Coming back to this app after some time and now they're asking me to "unlock" it. This is probably the most expensive app I've ever bought and they do this. Low. (Edit: Changed my review because of the response. This is a really good app. But I'm moving to Things because I like to pay once and just be done with it.)
  • Amazing app keeps getting better

    By Dougnova
    Great interface coupled with more and more functionality makes for a app that is well worth the price. Glad to see the continued improvements.
  • The best, but not in love

    By Vulgar demos
    OmniFocus is still the best app despite its many flaws. Among these flaws: - annoying pricing hoops with versions and legacy apps that almost make you wish you could just pay them a subscription; - lack of customizability in perspectives (the single developer working on 2Do beats them by miles); - lack of natural language input (see Todoist) - lack of ability to integrate with web APIs like IFTTT - clunky design (compare to Things) - very slow roll out of even the most basic feature (such as universal search). - very weak sync. Rarely are the iOS alerts relevant anymore (because I already checked them off on another device and they just haven't synced). Still, the app is the best because it has the combination of things that other apps lack: - good customer support - deferred dates - consistent experience across devices
