What's NewOmniFocus 1.15.1 — September 28, 2012
OmniFocus for iPhone 1.15.1 is a minor update which includes updated localizations, and fixes a handful of bugs.
OmniFocus for iPhone requires iOS 5.1 or later.
• Corrected a localization regression which caused the English names of the built-in perspectives to be displayed incorrectly.
• Updated German, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Russian, and Chinese localizations.
• OmniFocus no longer captures completed reminders when Reminders Capture is enabled.
• Corrected a layout problem on the Title & Note edit screen when running on iPhone 5.
• Fixed a rare crash that could occur when switching between days in Forecast mode with the event timeline enabled.
OmniFocus 1.15 — September 13, 2012
OmniFocus for iPhone 1.15 includes support for iPhone 5 and iOS 6, adds TextExpander touch support, a Russian localization, and various other improvements and bug fixes.
TextExpander touch Support
• OmniFocus now includes support for TextExpander touch. TextExpander snippets will be expanded in most text fields, in notes, and in search.
Maps & Location
• Location Reminders in OmniFocus exclusively uses geofencing whenever possible. (In the uncommon case where you've exceeded the device's maximum number of monitored regions, OmniFocus will fall back to using significant location changes as a supplemental mechanism.)
• Fixed a bug where requesting directions to a context's location in Maps mode didn't correctly open the directions in the Maps app on iOS 6.
• This release restores business search.
Privacy on iOS 6
• OmniFocus requires permission to access your Reminders to use the Reminders Capture feature.
• OmniFocus requires permission to access your Calendar to use the Calendar Events feature of Forecast mode.
• OmniFocus requires permission to access your Contacts in order to assign a contact address as a Context's location.
• OmniFocus for iPhone now includes a Russian localization.
• On iOS 6 OmniFocus uses a more robust and flexible method for capturing Reminders.
• Reminders captured on iOS 5.1 no longer have “Event reminder” as their default note.
• Improved the appearance of completed action titles in the Action inspector.
• Improved match highlighting in the Context and Project picker on iOS 6.
• The Calendar Alarms setup screen now includes instructions for enabling SSL on your calendar subscription. (iOS does not include a mechanism for OmniFocus to enable this automatically.)
• In Forecast mode the due time is shown for items not in Past or Future.
• Fixed a drawing glitch triggered by completing the last item in Forecast mode on iOS 6.
• Fixed an edge case where sync which removed a due date may have left the due notification scheduled.
• Fixed a bug where the Search screen was sometimes incorrectly laid out after interacting with the on screen keyboard.
• Omni Sync Server usernames are always lowercase. Sync Setup enforces this now to eliminate the possibility of entering an unusable value.
• The selection style of Forecast's past section draws overdue only when you have overdue actions in the past.

"OmniFocus for the iPhone is one of the best examples of a great iPhone app that I've seen. The interface is simple, intuitive, and it just lets you get your stuff done." — iPhone Alley Editors Choice Award 2009, ★★★★★
"Finding the right application to manage your tasks is great, and it's even better when there's a companion app for your iPhone or iPod touch. OmniFocus for the iPhone is a perfect example: It fits well with its Desktop brother, includes the features you need to organize your tasks, builds task lists based on your current location, captures voice notes and pictures, and synchronizes with your Mac via MobileMe or WebDAV servers.
