OmniFocus for Web is a version 1.0 and so it should be a bare bones service. It has been positioned as an extra service because we’ll still need OmniFocus for Mac or OmniFocus for iOS to create the database.
I can see the web version mostly as a way to let users capture tasks, delete/add tasks, and look at our projects and contexts.
I won’t expect Applescripting. I don’t know if there will be any API hooks for Zapier or IFTTT services to communicate with. I won’t expect a review perspective. Maybe the Forecast perspective might be there in the web version?
For a version 1.0 web service, I think it’s a good start. Who knows? It might become a fully-fleshed out service later on if demands for a full version will spark additional features.
I remembered when OmniFocus for iPhone, OmniFocus for iPad, and OmniFocus for Mac had different features. It’s taken some time for OmniFocus for iPhone and OmniFocus for iPad to merge and become OmniFocus for iOS. There’s still some disparity between the iOS version and the MacOS version. Hopefully that will be corrected in OF3. But for now, the web version 1.0 is a promising start.
