Long time OmniOutliner and OmniGraffle fans begging for iPhone versions of the apps are finally getting their wish. The Omni Group has been developing both for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and has started inviting some of its users to check out pre-release versions.
OmniOutliner and OmniGraffle on the iPhone. Finally!
The lucky early testers started getting invitations on Monday to try out the beta apps on Monday. The apps are being distributed through Apple's TestFlight system.
OmniOutliner is an app for creating simple and complex outlines, and OmniGraffle makes easy work of designing flow charts and diagrams. Both were originally released for the Mac, and later iPad versions were developed. Once the apps were available in tablet versions, users started asking for iPhone versions, too.
Like any beta software, you shouldn't use these apps with business-critical data because some features may not work, and there's always the possibility of data loss. That said, it's great to see both on an iPhone screen, and we're looking forward to their official release.
