Businesses running primarily on Macs, iPads and iPhones can now wield a powerful new project management tool with the release of OmniPlan 4 for iPad and iPhone.

What is OmniPlan?

OmniPlan is a well-designed tool from one of the world’s most experienced Mac developers, the Omni Group. As a former NEXTSTEP consulting company, the firm has roots in the Mac platform that predate macOS; it has introduced apps for Apple’s platform since day one.

Used by top-tier Fortune 500 tech companies and in a variety of industries, including construction, OmniPlan 4 is a great option for project management. It combines interval tracking, recurring tasks, scheduling and schedule alteration, a useful project wizard, and many more tools and features.

It also supports dark mode, syncs automatically (and speedily) via iCloud, and does a great job helping project managers assemble complex tasks within Gannt Charts. These charts aren’t simply images, but can host dependencies, so the tool becomes a working window into project completeness. It means project managers can easily assess overall project status and also swiftly focus on deeper project data to stay on top.

What OmniGroup says

I spoke with OmniGroup founder and CEO Ken Case, who explained the fundamental aim of the software:“OmniPlan is designed for project managers, typically, that’s their professional role, sometimes they’re dedicated project managers — but it can also be somebody for whom this is one of many hats. They don’t have a lot of time to just spend in project management tools the whole day, they don’t want to spend a lot of time when they’re working with it.

“We wanted it to be easy for them to capture a project, get into it and organize it to the level of depth they need — to grow into the project and become more advanced in using the app as needs grow.”

At the same time, Omni also wanted to ensure its project management solution could meet the needs of complex projects. That’s why you’ll find increasingly powerful features nested inside OmniPlan.

“We didn’t want people to be limited because they found the app didn’t have enough depth for what they wanted to do,” Case said.
