The Omni Group team has announced they will publish the same suite of desktop apps they’re porting to the iPad (OmniFocus, OmniGraffle, OmniGraph Sketcher, OmniPlan, OmniOutliner) in the Mac App Store. The announcement comes a few hours after the unveil of the Mac App Store by Steve Jobs at the Back to the Mac event.
Ken Case writes on the company blog:
The Mac App Store will be a much, much better app buying experience than any option consumers currently have: you’ll be able to experiment with buying software from developers you don’t know without worrying about whether they will be careful with your billing information, or whether they might even be shipping you malware. You won’t have to figure out how to install the software or any of its future updates.
The Mac App Store will officially kick off in January 2011. You can bet on the Omni Group having apps available by the launch day.
