OmniPlan v2 is the worst application I've ever used from OmniGroup (and I use OmniOutliner, OmniFocus and OmniGraffle). I've found it to be very buggy/unstable and I expect waaaay better from a $200 program.

If asking a simple question resulted in frowny faces, no doubt my review will be unpopular among the fanboyz. Fortunately, the Omni people addresed this issue in a recent (02/01/2012) blog post:
"Also new and notable! We’re getting started on multi-project support."

This had been requested since 2006.

Version 2.0.3 was unable to open a MS Project MPX file, both using File>Open and dragging the file to OmniPlan. I had to Force Quit OP both times. Merlin opened the file in about 2 seconds.
It did open the MPP file of the same project, and that was a bit quicker than Merlin.

Merlin had a much cleaner view of the project, and this applies to Tasks or Activities, Resources, and Calendar. Merlin offers an additional view (Net Plan).

I tried the "Scale to Fit Project" option only to discover there's no Undo for this.

No problems with ease of use or stability. 4 stars for each of these categories. In terms of features and value I can't rate this higher that 2 stars.

I'll give it another try in version 3. For now, FastTrack Schedule and Merlin are clearly a better choice, and Merlin costs the same as OmniPlan 2.

People with simple PM needs will probably enjoy OmniPlan, but for the same price there are better, more robust alternatives out there.

Pity this page references the beta only. In fact, the last stable version 1.7 is available here


I would say top marks for the innovative option of English only (12.2 MB) versus all languages 41.7 MB) Clever.

I have been using this for my Project Management class and it's been fantastic! It can export to MS Project flawlessly. Highly recommended.

Since they dropped support for PPC I can't try it. Did they finally add an option for sharing/managing multiple resources across various projects simultaneously?


As I am new to Project managment and this program, I can't answer your question yet. If I find this out, I'll let you know.

Gotta agree with others on price.

I might as well buy MS Project and pretend I just got $150 off! I think this is a fine project management tool for an individual with modest requirements but close to 1/2 the price of MS Project? I just can't justify not just recommending project when the price delta is so small.

I'd take a chance for less, not sure what the sweet spot is, but for sure I can't justify it at this price much like so many other Omni products.

Omni's pricing is completely out of whack and unrealistic, this goes for all Omni apps on OS X and iOS which is a pity as I think they would actually sell quite well if they where more realistic priced

They do sell quite well. OmniGroup is closer to a company such as Adobe, Bare Bones, can't think of another big company but they are big developers making software for professionals and have been doing so for 10 + years. Whether your employer buy's the software or you buy it yourself your buying "best in it's class" applications so they are going to be expensive. They are not a small group of a couple developers and just one product or one developer with a lot of little products. The apps they sell cover all bases and that's why they even offer limited versions of some of their products as most won't need the entire feature list however they do make an attempt at reaching out to all levels of users. Pricing could be like adobe.


Unfortunately they're no longer "best in it's class" applications. OmniPlan in particular has never been adequate for anything but very simple project management.
In contrast there's FastTrack Schedule now at version 10, or Merlin 2. Both are much better for project management, and Merlin is priced quite reasonably.
Omni applications offer great user interfaces and are intuitive and easy to use. That being said, these days I seldom use any of my eight Omni applications. The latest casualty was OmniOutliner Pro, which I replaced with the $10 NeO/Tao. The alternatives I now use offer better features. Omni is now lagging behind.

Tried this and it does work as advertised, I had only one crash that I had to Force-Quit. But the price is way to high for me. $50 - $70 I can see, but $150 is way out of the ballpark.

Why is this program $149 when it's a Beta? And how many Betas do this mob put out. Fair dinkum. Who would buy this stuff if it's not ready, which obviously it isn't?
