OmniFocus 1.0 released
The Omni Group today announced the final release of OmniFocus 1.0, its new advanced task management tool. OmniFocus is designed around David Allen's "Getting Things Done" work-life management method, allowing users to quickly assemble notes and ideas into cohesive plans. The application assigns tasks to master projects, and can be viewed by context as well - such as "Go to the store" or "Garden work" - while automatic visual cues show the next step that needs to be taken. OmniFocus is currently shipping, available for $80; a 25-percent discount is available to users of OmniOutliner Professional.
In addition to putting ideas directly into OmniFocus, the software includes a quick-entry panel that can pop up from anywhere within the operating system. Users can also import kGTD documents, and synchronize with iCal through OmniFocus.
