The Omni Group, lauded purveyor of Mac and iOS productivity tools, recently rolled out their 2018 Roadmap, detailing plans and updates for several of their applications — particularly OmniFocus 3.
I’ve been an on-and-off user of OmniFocus for several years, usually dabbling and experimenting for a few weeks with different setups that I’ve seen online, and always going back to a simpler task application. I do like a lot of what OmniFocus does. For me, it’s heavy program that requires a lot of finesse and experience to get the most out of it.
But from their post, it sounds like it’s going to get a bit more approachable.
The next big update of OmniFocus promises to focus on…
- swapping out contexts for tags (about time)
- better manual sorting
- more flexibility with scheduling and notifications
- an updated design (yay!)
- task collaboration (also yay!)
- introduction of a web-based app
No mention of when the new version will be available, other than sometime this year, but Omni Group is currently offering TestFlight signups on their website. I’m excited for the update and for what seems like steps toward simplifying their powerful task manager. I’m sure have my eye on it when it launches.
