Inside OmniFocus

These archived stories are about OmniFocus 2 for Mac and iOS. Many of them will still be relevant to OmniFocus 3, but not necessarily in every detail. In the hope that you will still find them useful, we’ve preserved them. See the product page for OmniFocus for more about OmniFocus 3.

You can also read about using OmniFocus with the Getting Things Done® system. While OmniFocus doesn’t require following that system, it works very well with it.
