Ars Technica have a preview of the upcoming OmniFocus app for the iPhone.
Ken told us that OmniGroup’s plan for the iPhone version of OmniFocus was not to be merely a companion to the desktop version, and since day one has planned a standalone version of OmniFocus. That means that, unlike some other projects, OmniFocus for the iPhone allows its user nearly the full spectrum of capability you expect from such an application. This includes adding, deleting, and editing tasks, organizing and prioritizing those tasks, and marking tasks as complete.
It also discusses how OmniFocus will feature tight integration with iPhones core components.
Ken showed us an example of a task he added, “Go to GameStop to buy a game,” and had associated a place name of “Gamestop” to that task. In his example, you could be out running other errands with free time, sort all your tasks by location and then sorts them by their physical proximity to your current location. Assuming there was a GameStop close by, it might appear at the top of the list. The team has also made it simple to retrieve driving directions to that location as well.
