The Omni Group makes some great stuff, but absolutely none of it works well together. Why can’t I copy an outline and past it into OF to create a new project? How about a direct link between OmniFocus and OmniPlan? These are great applications individually, but they are silos fighting against each other.
Gabe really nails it here. I don’t have a lot of experience with Omni products and I’ve always wondered why. Individually, their products seem to perfectly fit what I need. I’ve spent hours playing with OmniOutliner and OmniFocus. I like them but I don’t love them. I’ve often found myself looking for a reason to purchase and walking away confused, and I think Gabe has figured it out. They don’t play well together. They are truly one-solution products that have no idea the other exists. And that’s a shame because they’re both great products, but they could be an awesome system.
