OmniFocus is now available anywhere in your web browser.

The new web app makes it possible to access your tasks on Windows and other operating systems for the first time. It is designed to work alongside OmniFocus for Mac and iOS.

Sadly, it doesn’t allow you to use OmniFocus if you don’t own an Apple device at all.

OmniFocus is an immensely popular (and even more powerful) task management platform. It’s designed for those with complex projects who need more than just a simple to-do list.

Until now, OmniFocus was only available on Mac and iOS devices, which means there was no way to access your tasks on Windows, Android, Chrome, and other systems.

But that’s no longer the case.

OmniFocus for the Web is live

After a beta test, OmniFocus for the Web is live for everyone. It’s still in testing so it’s not completely finished just yet, but it does offer many of the core features you expect from OmniFocus.

You’ll see all your projects and tasks as soon as you log in thanks to syncing between all your devices. And you’ll have the ability to mark them as complete, add actions, and more.

The Omni Group promises more features will be added to the web app over time. But there are some things you should know before you jump in.

There are caveats

OmniFocus for the Web isn’t a standalone product; you need to be using OmniFocus for Mac or iOS before you can use it. What’s more, it’s not free if you don’t have an OmniFocus subscription.

If you already purchased the OmniFocus apps for Mac and iOS outright and you don’t pay for them monthly, you’ll have to cough up $4.99 a month or $49.99 a year to access the web app.

If you do subscribe to OmniFocus Pro, priced at $9.99 a month or $99.99 a year, then the web app is included at no extra cost.
