OmniFocus 4.3

This week The Omni Group released version 4.3 of OmniFocus with several nice improvements:

  • New Focus Filters: This version introduces device Focus Filters to customize visible app data based on the current Focus mode.
  • Enhanced Automation: A new Favorite Perspective shortcut and automation options for perspective displays using Siri commands or your device focus.
  • Apple Watch Improvements: Faster, more reliable syncing with paired iPhones, and automatic sync error resolution.

However, the thing that stands out for me with this release is that it is shipping simultaneously on Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Vision Pro. I know The Omni Group took heat for the delay in getting to version 4 and rebuilding the app in SwiftUI, but that’s exactly why they can ship new features to all platforms on the same day.

Also, it’s not lost on me that I’m a bit biased.
