This week MacSparky is sponsored by the Omni Group, makers of some of the finest productivity software for the Mac, iPad, and iPhone. The Omni Group always jumps in with both feet for new operating system updates, and they didn’t disappoint this year.
All of their iPad and iPhone apps got updates for iOS 11. My favorites are, of course, OmniFocus, which now supports drag-and-drop both in-application and from third-party applications. Dragging an email from Apple Mail over to OmniFocus is a game-changer. You can also now add tasks to OmniFocus with Siri. Activate Siri and say, “In OmniFocus add take out the garbage” and you’ll get a new task, “Take out the Garbage” in OmniFocus with no further trouble. Drag and drop is equally useful in OmniGraffle.
Of course, The Omni Group has also updated its Mac apps to be fully compliant with High Sierra.
The Omni Group apps are a key to my own productivity. Every day I keep up with all of my obligation in large part because of the hard work being done at the Omni Group. They’ve got free trials for all of their applications, and if you’d like a hand, you should give the Omni Group a chance.
