The Omni Group Releases OmniOutliner 5 for Mac

OmniOutliner Essentials

OmniOutliner Essentials

Timed perfectly with the fifth day of the month, The Omni Group today released OmniOutliner 5, in what the company called “the biggest update to our outlining app ever.”

OmniOutliner 5 now comes in two distinct versions: Essentials and Pro. With OmniOutliner Essentials, the Omni Group has stripped down the Pro version to offer a more focused experience, featuring 10 unique themes, document statistics, and the basic outlining functionality found in previous versions of OmniOutliner. The sell, though, is through its price – $10.

OmniOutliner Pro users will see significant updates and improvements, too, with features like outline filtering, private documents with password protection, keyboard shortcut definition, and built-in themes. Pro users also receive document statistics and an improved full screen mode. For more information about the update for OmniOutliner Pro, visit the preview page here.

Although these updates bring great features to both versions, the $10 price for OmniOutliner Essentials is the standout of today's news. For the Omni Group, hitting this price point is a significant accomplishment, one that I believe will draw people into the developer’s group of apps. A Mac app of this quality, especially considering the support behind it, will tempt a lot of people to make the purchase.
