The Omni Group in 2018 (Sponsor)

This week, MacSparky is sponsored by the Omni Group. Did you know that the Omni Group is going to do some amazing work this year on all of the Omni apps that you love? Ken Case recently did his 2018 Roadmap post, and we have a lot to look forward to:

OmniFocus 3 for Mac and iOS

Tags … check. 

Manual sorting … check.

Flexible scheduling … check.

Improved notifications … check.

Updated design … check.

Collaboration … check.

OmniFocus for the web … check.

OmniFocus 3 is easily my most anticipated new software app of 2018.


They recently released the 7.6 update for Mac that makes using Stencils easier than ever. I use Stencils often in OmniGraffle when building diagrams, and you should too. Later this year, they will be releasing an update that makes improvements to diagramming tools.


We just got OmniOutliner 3 for iOS last week. It’s great!


There are several updates for OmniPlan in the works. There will be a new “Project Summary Inspector”, and they are making improvements to the “Publish & Subscribe” sync functions.

JavaScript-Based Automation

Best of all, the Omni Group is pushing forward with its JavaScript-based automation tools across the board with its apps. Using these tools, you will be able to automate these already powerful apps with your own custom scripts, which will work in both Mac and iOS versions. Dust off your JavaScript chops, ladies and gents. This will be fun.

This is why I love Omni Group apps. As powerful as these apps are, the Omni team never rests. Go check out the Omni Group today and make sure to read the full 2018 Roadmap.
