Argh! I cannot buy it
Given that its sold into enterprises - folks wanting an alternative to MS Project… only having in-app purchases is impossible since VPP (Volume Purchaes Program) does not support that. And don’t ask me to go through a two month vendor management review to add a vendor to buy this direct - not to mention that tracking licensing for non-app store apps is a major pain that we try to avoid wherever possible. It would be useful to submit 2 apps - one a direct purchase and one an in-app model.
Off to look at other options.
Developer Response ,
We’re really sorry to hear that our purchase model prevents you from being able to purchase OmniPlan! By distributing OmniPlan as a free application, we’re able to offer a trial period of the application as well as discounted upgrade prices to customers who purchased a previous version of OmniPlan. Unfortunately, relying on In-App purchases currently prevents us from distributing OmniPlan licenses via the VPP store. This is something we’ve let Apple know we’d like to be able to do, and if you’d like to provide Apple with that feedback as well, we’d really appreciate it! You can do so at apple.com/feedback. We’ll keep your suggestion in mind as we continue to evaluate ways to support enterprise customers. Thanks!
Simple to learn but surprisingly powerful and sophisticated
I strted using Omniplan because a vendor was able to turn around schedules for me very quickly and they really liked it. I started with the standard version but later upgraded to the pro version when I needed the extra features—and I’m really glad I did. I’ve read some bizarre reviews that imply that Omni is trying to push the app as ‘free’ and then upsell you directly to the pro version—that’s nuts. Nobody is going to give you an app like this for free, and they really bend over backwards to let you try the app before you spend any money; far less money than what microsoft asks for MS Project.
This app is simple enough to learn the basics and start putting out informative plans very quickly but it has a lot of features that you can uncover over time as you need them. There may be a few things I’d still like to see, but overall the product is reallly well designed and robust and I’ve built up a group of templates that now dramatically shorten the time it takes to develop plans and cost them out.
I’ve been using project planning software for a long time (since the 90’s) and this is the best design I’ve seen. I recommend it to everybody who asks.
Happy with the product and happier with the vendor
I have both this and OmniGraffle as I wanted to be able to view and work with Project and Visio documents on my MacBook, and there are no versions of these products from Microsoft for the Mac (and I don’t want to deal with a dual-boot setup). I’ve been happy enough with these both, though I will still be doing a lot of polishing and collaboration in the Microsoft products with these documents. The vendor has been VERY engaged when I have reported bugs and have asked for example documents so that they can do QA. These products are good now and I am very optimistic that the vendor will work to correct some of of the import/export problems that I see, which are relatively minor.
