If youd remotely consider yourself a productivity nerd, youve probably heard of OmniFocus by the OmniGroup. For those who havent, it is a productivity suite of apps that is focused around the getting things done model, otherwise known as GTD. Some guy wrote a book about it if youre super interested.
Weve covered OmniFocus here on AppAdvice extensively. I myself am a more recent convert, but others including Christine have experience with the platform dating back to the time of its inception. She can tell you all you need to know about the most recent version of OmniFocus for iPhone. The iPad version is similar. Theres even a fresh Mac app.
Today, the OmniGroup has announced that their beloved productivity platform will be making its way to the Apple Watch something I was worried might take a while, being an avid user of their service myself. Its great to have a widget in your Notification Center on iOS that breaks down what needs to be done for the day, but am a spoiled millennial who is consumed by first-world problems. Not having OmniFocus on the Watch would be very <<<<<, as the kids are saying.
The best part? Weve got an exclusive preview of whats coming to Apple Watch from the OmniGroup themselves, and wed like to share it with you. Featured on our sister site WatchAware, heres a preview of what OmniFocus will look like on the wrist:
Pretty neat, right? As you can see, OmniFocus on the Apple Watch will include its own app, along with support for Glances and Notifications via a tap on the wrist. Go ahead: click around and play with the interactive demo to explore the different ways in which your tasks can be shown to you. I personally am super stoked that the OmniGroup has jumped on this train early on in the game, especially since full-fledged OmniFocus, while powerful, can be overwhelming at times.
This is what we want to achieve with WatchAware. We want to not only give you exclusive looks at what Apple Watch will be able to do, but more importantly, help you decide whether how Apple Watch will be a part of your life.
