With our latest shipping updates, all of our apps are ready for both macOS Ventura and iPadOS 16. Along with updating our apps for compatibility, we've brought iPadOS 16's customizable toolbars to all our document-based apps (OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, and OmniPlan).

We've updated our online store so that there's no longer a distinction between team and personal licenses. You can purchase however many licenses you need—traditional up-front licenses or subscriptions—then use them yourself or share them with team members. We've reduced the number of choices each of you have to make when purchasing our software, while still providing flexibility for how you use purchased licenses.
