The OmniGroup announced its plans to release OmniFocus 2 and OmniOutliner 4 in the first quarter of 2013. Both are very welcome and some would say long overdue. In the last couple of years the group focused on developing the software for iPad and somewhat neglected the Mac platform. This is a pity because it is on the Mac where industrial strength of both apps is most needed. OmniOutliner – a great software for structuring writing, presentations and plans – needs smoother formatting, printing and export to different formats. OmniFocus – a great task management app – needs the ability to work with planning and time aspects of actions and projects (ranging from summary time estimates to the famous ‘forecasts’ which are a legend on iPad). It also desperately needs to integrate with simpler task lists such as Reminders or TaskPaper. I am sure there are these and many more features on the way. Looking forward!
