The Omni Group Embraces the iPad

One of the very first developers I contacted after the iPad announcement was Ken at the OmniGroup. I’ll spare you the gory details but the email included lots of begging and pleading about how if OmniFocus is not customized for the iPad, my life would end, cats would live with dogs, and the universe would come to a screeching halt. Ken reassured me they were absolutely going to make a version of OmniFocus for the iPad. At the time I wasn’t sure whether he was serious or just trying to shut me up.

Well I guess it was the former because today the Omni Group announced it is moving its entire productivity library (OmniFocus, OmniOutliner, OmniGraffle, OmniPlan, and OmniGraph Sketcher) to the iPad. Ken explained exactly how the company plans allocate resources and pull this off. Combining Omni’s suite with iWork, I expect to kick some serious ass with my iPad. I can hardly wait.
