Every year, Omni Group puts out their road map. This year’s road map sounds exciting…
2018 saw Omni Group deliver OmniOutliner 3 for iOS, OmniFocus 3 for Mac, and OmniFocus 3 for iOS. We also saw a test preview for OmniFocus for Web.
These steps set the foundation for further work in 2019. This year, the blog states that we’ll see the launch of OmniFocus for Web and subscription-based plans, and volume discounting for large organizations for the various Omni product offerings.
Automation has been a hot topic with podcasts such as Automators helping us improve our workflows with the ability to customize our apps to work better for every person’s unique needs.
Some other features that didn’t make it into OmniFocus 3 in 2018 were repeating notifications, collaboration with other OmniFocus 3 users, and time zone support for globetrotters.
I’ll be curious to see further enhancements to what I’ve felt is a weak point in the OmniFocus ecosystem - the user experience for OmniFocus 3 for iOS users. The small screen iPhone sizes have been a challenge for OmniFocus 3 users if Twitter is to be believed. There will be a concerted effort to work on the user experience for Omni’s software offerings on the small screen. I’m looking forward to seeing what the Omni Cooks have up their sleeves as they try to improve the iOS experience.
