Started working on an OmniFocus compatible Android GTD App

GTD Android OmniFocus android FocusGTD Started working on an OmniFocus compatible Android GTD App GTD AndroidI started working on an Android GTD App that will be compatible/similar to OmniFocus for iPhone. The ultimate goal is that it will behave roughly like the todays iPhone version of the app.

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).

Current status

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.

 

Next Steps

There are 2 major things that I plan to work on next:

  1. Synching back to the server (this will take a couple of weeks due to my limited time I can devote to the project)
  2. 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
