The Omni Groups killer project management app, OmniFocus 2, is now a universal piece of software optimized for Apples iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
In making the move, iPhone owners can now also enjoy a number of OmniFocus features which were previously limited to the iPad only. For instance, landscape support, Review mode, Perspective creation (a pro feature), Project Perspectives, and grouping and sorting are now all available from inside OmniFocuss iPhone app. As The Omni Group explains in the universal apps release notes, in general, all of the features of OmniFocus for iPad are now available on iPhone, and this is music to our ears.
There are also a number of brand new features available in OmniFocus 2, and chief among these is a customizable Today extension: this allows users to show deferred items or choose a custom perspective to display in Notification Center, The Omni Group notes, and its a pro-only feature.
Another new pro feature is a tiled home screen for the OmniFocus app, and this allows users to tap and hold on individual elements in order to customize the applications layout. Finally, extension management should now be more responsive and generally seamless due to changes in the apps extension architecture, the developer adds. OmniFocus Pro for iOS is a $19.99 in-app purchase (IAP), and a single purchase will unlock the additional features across all of your iOS devices.
