OmniFocus 2 gets redesigned UI, new Forecast and Review options

updated 11:51 am EDT, Wed May 28, 2014

App split into Standard, Pro editions

The Omni Group has launched OmniFocus 2, an updated version of its Mac organization tool. The app has been given a redesigned interface matched to the look of OS X Mavericks, and two new perspective options. Forecast lays out actions by date, and in association with what's included in the Calendar. Due dates can be assigned by dragging an action to a particular day. The Review perspective, meanwhile, is intended to simplify analyzing plans and making tweaks.

Another new feature is Quick Open, which makes it possible to jump to a folder, project, context, or perspective from anywhere in the app. Printing and export have been enhanced to generate output closer to a document than a screenshot.

One of the bigger changes is actually in how the app is sold. The title has been split into Standard and Pro editions, costing $40 and $80, respectively. The latter is closer in scope to OmniFocus 1, containing features like custom perspectives, the ability to hide everything but selected projects, and support for AppleScripts. Owners of the non-Mac App Store version of OF1 can upgrade to Standard for $20, or Pro for $40. People who did buy OF1 from the App Store can buy OF2 there and get Pro features for free.
