Show HN: AndroidFocus – an OmniFocus client for Android (androidfocusapp.com)

This has been my sideproject for the past couple weeks. The project started because I missed the ability to follow up on my OmniFocus tasks from my phone.

The Omni Group does not have an API but they were kind enough to show me some documentation on their webdav/xml based sync format.

The current feature set is rather limited but it's enough to allow 2 way syncing. I plan to add some more features (notes and attachments) in the coming weeks.


This is actually fantastic. As someone who has used Omnifocus in the past, and has switched over to Android, having a client on my phone which can pull from their sync service is amazing. I'm looking forward to the updates you mentioned, and hope you can update it to work with all the bits of information that they store.

This also makes me happy that they're willing to talk with developers about their sync format. That tells me an ambitious dev could create clients for Windows, Windows Phone, Linux, etc. as well.


Although as a note: the app immediately crashes after putting in my login information to sync with Omni's servers. This is on a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 running Android 4.3.


I'm taking a look at the crash logs and I think I have figured out what it is. Give me an hour or so to validate my assumptions and roll out a fix.


Awesome, thanks!


You are showing the wrong projects/contexts apparently. at least they differ to my of2 list. status of the contexts/projects arent taken into consideration?

folders are shown as regular projects?

why isnt creating an action instant?

how do i know about the current sync status?

you dont support an offline mode?!? :(


There is currently a known issue where the app would crash after entering sync credentials on Android 4.3 and lower. A fix is about to be deployed but it might take a couple hours before the updates propagates throughout the Play Store.


I've been waiting for this for a long time, thank you!

I would have happily paid twice the amount, please charge more.
