New in Omni Apps in iOS 13

We’ve been updating our apps — OmniFocus, OmniOutliner, OmniPlan, and OmniGraffle — for all the great new features in iOS 13.

Native Dark Mode

Our apps use the new system Dark Mode colors and conventions, and they follow your system preference — even if you have it set to automatically switch.

It looks beautiful! But it’s more than that: Dark Mode helps some people with accessibility issues, and it can help lots of people to avoid eye strain. This makes getting your work done less of a chore and more of a delight.

Multiple Windows

With multiple windows, new in iPadOS 13, you can open two OmniPlan projects at once. Or multiple OmniFocus perspectives, or two separate OmniOutliner outlines, or different OmniGraffle files.

This is so useful when you’re making similar changes in more than one place, when you’re copying or dragging from one window to another, or when information in one window is needed as you’re working on another window. No more tedious switching back and forth!

Productivity Gestures

iOS 13 adds new gestures for undo, select text, copy, and paste. We added support for these useful new gestures to our apps — because having consistent and easy-to-remember gestures will help you be more productive.

Standard Document Browser

Apple’s standard document browser isn’t new in iOS 13 — but we adopted it while adding support for new iOS 13 features.

We did so because this feature allows you far more flexibility in where you store your documents and how they sync. You can use iCloud Drive — and other file providers — and you can also continue to use OmniPresence, if you like. It’s totally up to you.

(Note: this feature is for our document-based apps: OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, and OmniPlan.)

Context Menus

To work more quickly with items on screen, just touch and hold — and a context menu appears showing you the most common commands.

Quickly defer a task in OmniFocus, split a task in OmniPlan, paste a style in OmniGraffle, and do plenty more. The commands are all easily discoverable, which makes them easy to use. You’ll start speeding up your work. Today.
