Use Launch Center to Go Directly to Adding a New Task in OmniFocus

Just as the title says, you can enter a URL scheme in App Cubby’s Launch Center which takes you directly into OmniFocus’ Quick Entry screen.

It’s dead simple given this forum post.


  1. In Launch Center tap Add New Launch…
  2. Tap Launch Website/App
  3. Enter a title of your choosing.
  4. For the URL field type: omnifocus:///add
  5. Tap done.

Works like a charm. This has moved Launch Center to my home screen.
