The Omni Show: How Dr. Lyle Skains Uses OmniOutliner

by Brent Simmons on March 18, 2020

In the latest episode, we talk with Dr. Lyle Skains — Wales resident, friend to cats and dogs — about how she uses OmniOutliner for projects, notes, and bibliographies as she writes and researches digital and interactive fiction. This includes everything from old-school text-based adventure like Zork to new forms like the interactive “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.”

Annette Fuller, Support Human and guest on an earlier episode of The Omni Show, joins as co-host this episode.

This episode runs overtime because Annette and the host had such a good time talking with the doctor — we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

The Omni Show: How Alex Lindsay Uses OmniGraffle

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.
