We’re very happy to announce that OmniFocus for the Web is now available!
OmniFocus for the Web is a browser-based companion app to OmniFocus for Mac and iOS. It includes the core features: projects, tasks, flags, due dates, tags, and more.
Here’s how OmniFocus for the Web came to be: over the years we’ve heard from many OmniFocus users that they can’t install OmniFocus on their work computer. We realized that if we made a web app, they could still use OmniFocus — all they would need is a web browser.
We designed the app with this case in mind, and so it works best with laptop and desktop computers: this first version is not designed for touch devices (though we may revisit that in the future).
Since OmniFocus for the Web is an ongoing service, it’s available as a subscription rather than as a one-time purchase. There are two options:
Web Add-on subscription: $4.99/month or $49.99/year
This is best for people who plan to purchase (or have already purchased) the native OmniFocus apps separately, minimizing ongoing subscription costs.
OmniFocus subscription: $9.99/month or $99.99/year
This subscription is for the Web edition and for OmniFocus Pro for Mac and iOS — all three apps in one subscription. This is a great option for people who haven’t already purchased OmniFocus for Mac or iOS and would prefer to pay for everything with one simple subscription.
These subscriptions can be purchased on the web.
(You might wonder if this is a first step toward subscriptions as the only option for OmniFocus. It’s not! We’re committed to the traditional model for our Mac and iOS apps — read our blog post on the subject.)
Note! If you’ve already been using OmniFocus for the Web, and this announcement seems confusing, here’s the scoop: it’s because we did a “soft launch.” We waited for the OmniFocus Web Add-on Subscription to be ready before announcing OmniFocus for the Web in this newsletter. :)
