by Brent Simmons on February 19, 2020

In the latest episode we talk with Alex Lindsay — who you probably know from MacBreak Weekly — about how he uses OmniGraffle in his company Pixel Corps, which does livestreaming for companies, organizations, and governments.

OmniGraffle is a key component of their workflow: it’s how they design and document complex setups and communicate visually with clients. OmniGraffle is how they make sure nothing goes wrong — or, really, how they make sure they can plan for things going wrong and still save the day.


The Omni Show: How Jason Atwood Uses OmniFocus in His Business

by Brent Simmons on January 22, 2020

In the latest episode of The Omni Show, we talk with Jason Atwood, COO and one of the founders of Arkus, Inc., a Salesforce consulting partner.

Jason and his co-founders are long-time OmniFocus users, and they’ve rolled it out across the company: everybody at Arkus uses OmniFocus. It’s just as much standard equipment as an email system. Everyone is trained on it, and education continues for every employee.

Jason says, “This is the best-of-breed productivity tool. Because I want people at Arkus to be able to satisfy our clients, to be on top of it, to be extremely good at what they do, I want to give them the best tool.”

It’s one of the keys to the success of Arkus. His clients definitely notice.

by Brent Simmons on December 11, 2019

In the latest episode, we talk with John Gruber, blogger at Daring Fireball and host of The Talk Show, about how he uses OmniOutliner.

He uses it for project management — for accomplishing a recent server move, for instance. He has a very-long-running outline called “Hacks” where he stores bits of scripts and command-line incantations.

Along the way we also end up talking about Think C, Filemaker, Silo, and interviewing Hair Force One. :)
