The Omni Group strives to write friendly software that takes full advantage of the Mac OS X development environment. Omni products are fun and easy to use, but they are also incredibly powerful applications that help people and businesses increase productivity. As Wil Shipley, president of The Omni Group, comments, "OmniGraffle is intended to be a simple and fun way to make diagrams of any sort. As we add functionality in later versions, weire going to be very careful not to lose sight of the core simplicity that makes this program so easy to use, as so often happens in this industry. Having a zillion features does the user no good if they are nigh-impossible to figure out."

Customers have used OmniGraffle to plan plot lines for a story, make an overview of an operating system, show the evolution of computers, map out large web sites, design database architectures, visualize framework dependencies, and even show how diseases can spread in a closed population. Use OmniGraffle to organize your thoughts, your projects, or even your friends graphically using boxes and lines. There is no better organizational application made for Mac OS X.

OmniGraffle is available for US$59.95 for a limited time. You can find more information at The Omni Group Web site.
