The Omni Group has announced that OmniFocus for iPad is now available on the App Store. The iPad edition of the popular OmniFocus task management application syncs with OmniFocus for iPhone and OmniFocus for Mac, and offers a host of professional features for both new and experienced users.

OmniFocus for iPad features a Quick Entry function for fast, easy task capture. Task details can include start and due dates, repeating schedules, or attached audio notes or photos. Items can be sorted into projects and folders, with as much hierarchy as is needed.

“We didn’t just bring the iPhone edition of OmniFocus to iPad, we redesigned OmniFocus to provide the best mobile task management experience possible,” said Ken Case, founder and CEO of the Omni Group. “Everything from fast data capture to built-in reviewing has been developed with iPad in mind. As a standalone app it’s got everything you need for fine-grained task management, and now you can also maintain your OmniFocus database whether you’re on your phone, your iPad, or your desktop computer.”

New to OmniFocus for iPad is Forecast, which displays a weekly view of due items. Selectively focus on one day at a time, display only overdue tasks, or view an entire week’s worth of to-dos as one list.

OmniFocus for iPad can display tasks by work mode, or context: for example, tapping a “Phone” context will display only phone-related tasks. With a WiFi or 3G connection, OmniFocus for iPad’s simplified Map also makes it easy to generate and view tasks based on current or assigned locations.

OmniFocus for iPad now includes a built-in Review mode, which streamlines the process of reviewing existing projects. Each project can be evaluated and its status updated while reviewing, so items are accurately marked as active, on hold, or dropped.

Other features in OmniFocus for iPad include a built-in search, the ability to automatically sync Perspectives from OmniFocus for Mac, a Library view of all projects, and more.
