Note that this app is in no way connected with OmniGroup at all. It is solely my personal endeavor. I am planning to sell this application on the Google Play Store once it is ready. I have checked with Omni and they didn’t seem to have anything against that approach.
However, until the app is anywhere near there it will be a long way to go still.
This whole project stemmed from an experiment that I embarked on when I got my Nexus 4. While still a die hard iPhone user, I tried to get by with just the Nexus 4 for a couple of weeks. And I really started to miss OmniFocus.
Dont get me wrong, there are *tons* of great todo applications for Android out there, but I haven’t found any that had an even remotely as capable Mac OS desktop client like OmniFocus (if you happen to know one then I would be very interested).
I am not sure what to call the apps current status. Its so far before alpha that I dont know of any term. In fact all it really does right now is download and parse all the sync data that is on a defined WebDAV share (i.e. OmniSync Server).
You can browse the synched data on the phone but there aren’t really any screens for the task details yet.
There are 2 major things that I plan to work on next:
- Synching back to the server (this will take a couple of weeks due to my limited time I can devote to the project)
- Improve the screens to show and edit the tasks in the database.
- Made it clear that the App is neither called OmniFocus for Android nor affiliated with OmniGroup
