Omni Group Bringing Omni Apps to iPad

The Omni Group, well know for the popular OmniFocus for the Mac and iPhone, is planning on bringing several of their applications to Apple's recently announced iPad.

The company is planning on developing versions of OmniFocus, OmniPlan, OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner and OmniGraphSketcher for the iPad. So far coding for the iPad versions of OmniGraffle and OmniFocus are already underway, and development work for OmniGraphSketcher should start in the next few weeks.

The upside is that iPad users will be able to take advantage of the Omni Group's productivity apps on the go. The downside is that the company will have to delay the releases of the next versions of its Mac OS X applications. OmniGraffle 6 is temporarily on hold to free up man power for iPad development, but OmniOutliner 4 and OmniPlan 2 won't likely see any delays.

The company isn't offering any time frame for the release of iPad versions of its applications, or how much they will cost. Since the iPad won't ship until some time in March, the Omni Group team has at least a few weeks head start.
