Hope you’ve had a great summer

Because we have! We were introduced to a ton of new things at WWDC 2014—we sat down, had discussions on what we should do next, and thought it over. Then, we started down what we think is the most beneficial path.

We’ve got some great new things to show you.

Introducing OmniFocus 2 for iPad

We’ve seen some great reviews for OmniFocus 2 for iPad—we’re now thinking that others love it just as much as we do.

We added Extensions for both the Today View and Share Sheet, so you can see tasks coming up in the afternoon and send actions natively from apps like Safari into OmniFocus.

OmniGraffle 2 for iPad: Engage

It’s super obvious, so we don’t really need to say it, but this is the best version yet! It’s faster than ever, loaded with improvements, and has a great set of new Pro features, all available as an In-App Purchase.

OmniFocus 2 for iPhone keeps growing better

Those same extensions you found in OmniFocus 2 for iPad are on iPhone as well. Get a feeling for your day in Today, or use Sharing to pass in new actions.

New iPhones? Yep! We’re working on getting an update that takes full advantage of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus screens to you as soon as possible.

Yosemite is just about here

Just last week, Apple put out a call for Yosemite-ready apps to be submitted to the Mac App Store. We’re working on updates to ensure each of our big four apps are ready: OmniGraffle 6.1 is available for Public Test right now, OmniFocus 2 has an updated Clip-o-Tron available, and updates to OmniOutliner and OmniPlan are wrapping up.

OmniGraffle 6.1 will require Yosemite, and it’s quite an upgrade. We’ve added a bunch of flexibility to Inspectors (you can break them off!), a brand new set of Fill filters and effects, and you can even blur, pixelate, and magnify content behind an object.

And just a bit more

New iBooks: OmniFocus 2 for iPad, OmniGraffle 2 for iPad, and localizations for OmniFocus 2 for iPhone: Chinese (Simplified), Dutch, French, German, Italian, Russian, Spanish.

We made a brand new GTD & OmniFocus video.

And Stenciltown launched! Stenciltown is a free-forever place to share and download stencils. Share yours right now if you’d like.
