OmniFocus 3 for iOS Available for Pre-order

by Brent Simmons on May 24, 2018

OmniFocus 3 for iOS isn’t quite on the App Store yet, but you can pre-order it now.

You’ll get an alert once it’s available, and the app will automatically download to the device where you placed the order. (It will also download on any other iOS devices where you have enabled automatic downloads.)

The app itself is free to download. Standard and Pro versions are available via in-app purchases, once the app ships.

This means that pre-ordering it is free. No risk. Go do it now!

About discounts and upgrades: if you bought OmniFocus 2 for iOS, there will be a 50% discount for OmniFocus 3. And if you bought OmniFocus 2 for iOS after we announced OmniFocus 3 last October, then an upgrade to the same edition (Standard or Pro) will be free.

Also note: OmniFocus 2 for iOS has been removed from sale from the App Store, since OmniFocus 3 is shipping so soon.

The Omni Show: Custom Perspectives

by Brent Simmons on May 23, 2018

In the latest episode of The Omni Show, Ken Case, CEO, and Dave Messent, OmniFocus Product Manager, join the show to talk about custom perspectives in OmniFocus Pro 3 for iOS.

Custom perspectives now work with the new tags feature — and the editor has been made more powerful and easier to use.

Reminder: we’ve set a ship date of May 30 for OmniFocus for iOS. (It could change, depending on App Store review, but that’s the plan.)

Also remember that you can continue to sync using OmniFocus 2 for Mac.

Spark 2.0

by Brent Simmons on May 22, 2018

Our friends at Readdle have launched Spark 2.0, an update to their popular and innovative Mac and iOS email app that promises to “make you love your email again.” This new version introduces support for team email, with private comments and a real-time shared compose editor.

Spark 2.0 is free for personal use.

And! The Mac app includes integration with OmniFocus — which we’ve written about before — and the iOS app now also includes integration with OmniFocus for iOS. We think that’s pretty darn cool.

OmniGraffle 7.8 for Mac — Testers Wanted!

by Brent Simmons on May 11, 2018

OmniGraffle 7.8 for Mac includes a number of enhancements and bug fixes — and, most importantly, it improves the orthogonal line routing algorithm. The change is the same as in the recently-released OmniGraffle 3.5 for iOS.

We’d very much like to get your help testing this and other changes. Positive and negative feedback, especially on the line routing update, is all helpful.

To get started:

Read the release notes, and then download a test build of OmniGraffle 7.8.

Let us know how it goes! You can email or post to the Slack group. Thank you!
