Omni Roadmap 2019

Each January, we like to pause and reflect on the past year's accomplishments and to share a roadmap of where we're headed in the coming year. Learn more about this year's plans for OmniFocus, OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, and OmniPlan!

[Blog post] Introducing Optional OmniFocus Subscriptions

Whether subscriptions make sense for you is something only you can decide. But we're pleased that we will soon be able to offer you that choice!

With today's round, everyone who signed up to help test OmniFocus for the Web should now have an invitation (even if you just signed up earlier today).

If anyone's curious about how how we built it, check out today's podcast:

Business Licensing for Omni's iOS Apps

We’re making it easier for businesses, schools, and other organizations to license and deploy our iOS apps. If you belong to an organization that might be interested in purchasing our apps, please get in touch!

Omni Roadmap 2018 — Q4 Update

Back in January's roadmap, I shared our plans for 2018. The big news from that roadmap was OmniFocus 3—which shipped for iOS in May, and for Mac in September.

What's next?

OmniFocus for the Web update: With today's batch of 1,000 invites, we've invited everyone who signed up before 4:32pm on October 1st.

You can sign up to test here:

I anticipate that folks who sign up today will receive their invitations on Wednesday.

Today we sent another 1,000 invitations to help test OmniFocus for the Web—including everyone who signed up by 9:37am on August 26. (If you signed up earlier but haven't seen yours, check the email address associated with your Omni Sync Server account!)

In the past week we've scaled up OmniFocus for the Web from dozens of testers to hundreds. We're hoping to reach thousands soon—so we're doubling the rate at which we're sending test invitations, to 200/day. Today's batch includes everyone who signed up by 9:19pm on July 31st.

OmniFocus for the Web is holding up well after last week's two 100-person rounds of test invitations, so we've just sent out another 100! This now includes everyone who signed up by 4:24pm on July 31st.

Here's where to sign up:

And here's a screenshot of our work-in-progress:

With all the new things in September, our engineering and test teams had a crazy busy month! Now that burden has shifted from our engineering and test teams to our sales and support teams—but helping lots of new customers is a good problem to have!

I'm honored and humbled to be featured for today's launch of Mojave's Mac App Store:

OmniFocus 3 for Mac ships one week from today! And to that end, we're throwing the doors on our test builds wide open so anyone who's interested can help us with this final week of testing:

We look forward to your feedback!

When OmniFocus 3 for Mac becomes available for sale (on Monday, September 24), you'll be able to get a 50% discount on the upgrade so long as you download the new version from the same source as your earlier version. For example, here's the Mac App Store app's upgrade screen:

I already shared that OmniFocus 3 for Mac will ship the day Mojave ships. And all those iOS 12 releases next week. But did I mention that when Mojave ships, we're also planning to ship Dark Mode support in OmniGraffle and OmniPlan?

Speaking of Siri shortcuts, we have yet more iOS 12 updates coming your way when it ships next week! OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, and OmniPlan will all be getting support for Siri shortcuts to open your favorite documents.

I already shared the OmniFocus 3 for Mac release date, but OmniFocus 3.1 for iOS 12 is coming even sooner! 3.1 will add support for Siri Shortcuts and the Apple Watch Siri Face, and we plan to ship it on the day iOS 12 ships. (That's this coming Monday, September 17!)

An "A+" to all those who guessed we would ship OmniFocus 3 for Mac on the day Mojave ships!

We had another marathon triage session this morning, and I just came from a meeting where we touched base with marketing, sales, and support about all the iOS & Mac releases coming this month.

We'll be announcing the ship date for OmniFocus 3 for Mac very shortly! (Any guesses?)

Yes, GM-seed Xcode, I know I just said that I'm looking forward to updating OmniFocus for the new Apple Watch. But I didn't mean that it had to be done _right this second_! :)

It's that time again!
