Using OmniFocus with Launch Center Pro for iOS

Launch Center Pro can make it quick and convenient to create and access OmniFocus tasks.

2024-04-03 Update – Launch Center Pro hasn’t been updated since 2020 and may not be supported in current versions of OmniFocus and iOS.

The Launch Center Pro app for iPhone and iPad allows you to quickly and conveniently create new OmniFocus actions and access information stored in OmniFocus with just a few taps. In this video, we’ll walk through creating typical Launch Center Pro actions. You’ll learn:

  • How to create Launch Center Pro actions that create OmniFocus actions based on a list of pre-defined tasks.
  • How to automatically include the clipboard contents in the title and notes fields of OmniFocus actions.
  • How to create one-tap access to frequently used Custom Perspectives (the Pro version of OmniFocus is required to create these perspectives).
