Not sure yet

So I had massive freezing and crashing problems with this initially. I think it requires more free space on your iPhone. Cleared that up and deleted completed projects and that helped. I still find the layout confusing and have spent too much time trying to figure it out…still haven’t quite…yet even with the tutorial and not sure how to get the plugins to work on iPhone…. All that said…feels like it has potential…

Update: Nope still freezing like crazy back to 1 star….it always starts out fully expanded and that crashes my app because I have so many projects. Please let me go back to Omni3. Update still crashing despite uninstalling and reinstalling and having 10GB free space

Update again: their update seems to have fixed the major freezing issues. Back up to 4 stars.

Sorry for the trouble! OmniFocus 4.2, released today, substantially improved performance on iPhone. If you’re still experiencing this issue after updating, could you reach out to our Support team for further assistance? They can be reached via email at, and would also be happy to help you get up and running with plug-ins on your iPhone. Thanks!

Clunky and buggy

You’ve actually made it harder to use than OmniFocus 3. It’s overly complicated, takes too many steps to do things because of the way more features are packed in to, say, the pop-up menu (but buried in a submenu!), that it takes extra clicks to get to the feature that used to take only one. On top of that, it’s very buggy. When I open it and try to move through the Perspective views, there is a LONG delay. Plus, some important controls have been taken away. I used to be able to hide deferred items when in the Review perspective, but that’s no longer possible—so I have to review every task in a project, even if it’s one I only do once a year and have deferred purposely so I DON’T have to review it every week with the other tasks in that project. Multiply all this by scores of projects, and it’s actually reducing my productivity—and making me very frustrated. If things don’t improve soon, maybe Things deserves a second look.

Like the upgrade...

So I've been using Omnifocus since version 2, and I did kind of step away from version 3. I thought I would see how 4 is going. I do like it, however- with out my background in Omni, I wonder how I would figure it out. Some of the ios U/I is a little non-intuitive. I find myself wanting to click on things to bring about a next interface move, that doesn't happen. But all in all- I compared it to my old v. 3 and I really do like the upgrade. I'm having fun using Omni. There's just something about it that clicks in your brain, and makes sense (maybe the GTD?), that sets it apart from Todoist and Things. I get so bored with those other apps. Especially Things. Omnifocus 4 is making me excited to work right now.
