Buying OmniFocus 3 for Mac

All versions of OmniFocus 3 now support the OmniFocus Subscription, which is a great way to get OmniFocus on all of your devices for one price. If you’re interested in purchasing just OmniFocus 3 for Mac, read on. If you need help purchasing or signing in to an OmniFocus subscription, go here.

OmniFocus for Mac is sold both through the Omni Store and Apple’s Mac App Store; the two stores deliver the same app features and functionality, but offer some unique benefits.

Discounts are available for customers who purchased an earlier version of OmniFocus for Mac. In order to receive an upgrade discount, you’ll need to purchase OmniFocus 3 in the same store that you purchased the earlier version from. We are unable to migrate customers from the App Store to our Omni Store — or from the Omni Store to the App Store. Here’s how to check where your earlier purchase was made.

Omni Store

The Omni Store serves our direct customers, as well as anyone who purchased OmniFocus 2 anywhere other than the Mac App Store.

If you’ve decided to purchase OmniFocus directly from us, download the direct version of OmniFocus. There’s only one download for both Standard and Pro users.

When you launch OmniFocus for the first time, you can get started right away with a free trial, or immediately purchase or enter a license. Click the Buy Licenses button to open the OmniFocus 3 page in our web store.

Purchasing OmniFocus for new users

  1. Open the OmniFocus 3 page in our web store.

  2. In the Buy a new license section, click the Buy button next to the desired license type to add the license to your cart.

Mac App Store

OmniFocus 3 is available as a free download in the Mac App Store. It has a 14-day trial that is free via In-App purchase and additional In-App Purchases that fully unlock the Standard or Pro feature sets.

If you’ve decided to purchase OmniFocus via the Mac App Store, download the App Store version of OmniFocus 3. If you’re upgrading from an earlier version, you’ll also need to have the earlier version installed in order to validate your upgrade discount.

Unlocking OmniFocus for new users

  1. Download OmniFocus 3 from the Mac App Store. There’s only one download for both Standard and Pro users.

  2. When you launch OmniFocus for the first time, you can follow the Try path to get started using the app, or the Buy path if you already know you want Standard or Pro. If you’ve already gone through the first run experience, you can access the In-App Purchases window via the item in the OmniFocus app menu.

  3. The In-App Purchases screen allows you to choose a standalone OmniFocus 3 for Mac license or the OmniFocus Subscription. If you’re sure you just want OmniFocus 3 for Mac, click Purchase Options.

  4. Click one of the Buy buttons to purchase Pro or Standard using your Apple ID.

  5. On any other Macs where you wish to set up OmniFocus 3, repeat the download process with the same Apple ID. OmniFocus should automatically restore your purchase when you download it, but if some reason it doesn’t, click the Restore button on any of the In-App purchase screens.

Upgrade pricing for existing customers

  1. Make sure that the previous version of OmniFocus that you purchased from the Mac App Store is installed.

  2. Download OmniFocus 3 from the Mac App Store. There’s only one download for both Standard and Pro users.

  3. When you launch OmniFocus for the first time, you can follow the Try path to get started using the app, or the Buy path if you already know you want Standard or Pro. If you’ve already gone through the first run experience, you can access the In-App Purchases window via the item in the OmniFocus app menu.

  5. On the OmniFocus 3 for Mac screen, click the Upgrade just above the purchase cards. You’ll be asked to locate the earlier version of OmniFocus that’s installed on your Mac. Click Verify Discount to find it. Select the earlier version of OmniFocus from where you installed it, then click Open.

    Locating your previous OmniFocus purchase

  6. After your earlier version of OmniFocus has been verified, your discounted pricing options will be listed. Click one of the Upgrade buttons to purchase Pro or Standard using your Apple ID.

    • It’s fine to leave the older version of OmniFocus installed, but it might make using things like extensions and services harder. Make sure you’ve already imported or synced your data in OmniFocus 3 if you decide to delete the older version.
  7. On any other Macs where you wish to set up OmniFocus 3, repeat the download process with the same Apple ID. OmniFocus should automatically restore your purchase when you download it, but if some reason it doesn’t, click the Restore button on any of the In-App purchase screen.

Activating (or reactivating) features on another device

After the initial In-App Purchase is completed, that purchase is permanently associated with your Apple ID. As long as you are using the same Apple ID and are in the same country as the original purchase, Apple allows you to re-download any of your previous purchases for free.

If you’d like to activate Standard or Pro on any of your other Macs, or if you’ve uninstalled and reinstalled OmniFocus from the Mac App Store, head back to the In-App Purchases window and tap the Restore button.

Troubleshooting In-App Purchases

If you are unable to reinstall the previous version or complete your In-App Purchase, try logging out and logging back in to the App Store.

  1. In the App Store app, choose Sign Out from the Store menu.

  2. Reboot your Mac.

  3. Sign back in with your Apple ID. If reinstalling a prior version, be sure to use the ID tied to your purchase of the previous version.

  4. Try reinstalling or completing the In-App Purchase again.
