Testing Begins for OmniOutliner 3 for iOS

Yesterday, we put OmniOutliner 3 for iOS in Public Test. We’ve spent a lot of time getting it to this point, and we’re looking for feedback specifically about new Pro features.

This is a major upgrade for OmniOutliner for iOS, and while the final version will have a focus on simplicity—3 will be the first version to include Essentials for iOS—right now we’re finishing up work on the Pro feature set.

So what’s new in 3? Omni Automation is the biggest addition: cross-platform scripting, using JavaScript, to automate nearly everything in OmniOutliner for iOS. If you’re familiar with the language and could stand to automate common tasks, try writing a script! Sal Soghoian’s website gives a great overview, and OmniOutliner provides an in-app API reference.

This version also includes support for Drag and Drop, encrypting documents with a password, a brand new implementation of our sidebar and inspectors (with major work ongoing for the filtering tab of the sidebar), row focus, section lists, printing, and PDF support.

Putting OmniOutliner 3 through your paces

So what are we looking for input on?

  • How’s Pro working, on your iPad and iPhone, as your central repository for how you outline, write, and manage your ideas?
  • What doesn’t it have that you think it should?
  • How’s it working with your keyboard, your shortcuts, and everything that you’ve come to expect from the Mac?
