Debut of OmniFocus 2
A couple of screenshots of the upcoming OmniFocus 2 has been released, and it has been heavily inspired by the iPad app. It looks great, but I really hope that it will be easier to navigate than the iPad version, which can be a bit tedious if you have many projects and folder levels.
The new Forecast moded shows you a summary of your upcoming time-based commitments at a glance in the sidebar. You can leave the forecast collapsed to see the next several days (as in the screenshot), or expand the forecast to see an entire month in your sidebar. From the forecast, you can select any combination of days to see a detailed schedule includes scheduled tasks from OmniFocus integrated with events from your calendar.
I hope that the Forecast view will support adding calendar events in addition to viewing them. That would mean it can be a full replacement for iCal.
The OmniFocus Mail Drop
We call this new feature the “OmniFocus Mail Drop”. Unlike previous mail-processing features, we wanted a method that wouldn’t require any of your devices to be present in order to add items to OmniFocus, we wanted to add the much-requested better attachment support, and we wanted to reduce the amount of extra work you had to do in order to get your items into OmniFocus as much as possible.
This has the potential to completely change how we deal with the inbox in Omnifocus. There is more information in the official thread, including instructions for signing up for the service.
Google Maps is now available for iPhone
Looking forward to trying the new navigation on my way home from work. Could this become a competitor to Waze?

An alternate universe
Marco Arment went to a Microsoft Store to try the new Surface. It is quite an interesting read, especially if you have been to an Apple Store.
