OmniOutliner Essentials overview

OmniOutliner Essentials (was OmniOutliner) is a flexible program for creating, collecting, and organizing information. Give your creativity a kick start by using an application that's actually designed to help you think. It's like having an extra brain - one that doesn't keep losing the car keys.

You can use OmniOutliner's document structure to create hierarchies of main headings and subpoints that can be expanded and collapsed, which are immensely useful when it comes to brainstorming new ideas, drilling out specifics, and lining up steps needed to get everything done. But you aren't limited to outlines - you've got multiple columns, smart checkboxes, customizable popup lists, and an Über-innovative styles system at your disposal.

Use OmniOutliner to draft to-do lists, create agendas, manage tasks, track expenses, take notes, plan events, write screenplays...and just about anything else you can think of.

Does nearly everything I want it to, for cheap. I use it to keep lists of all sorts of things, including my daily routines. I do wish it had an “uncompleted” checkmark option.

Imagine having a baby, raising him up to age 5, and then chopping off arms, legs, and hands. That's what happened to OmniOutliner Standard or "Essentials" as they now call it. I recently found that Omni Group even removed the ability to paste images into outlines! A feature that was present with the standard version since 1.0! Sad, really sad these business practices.

For the $10 price, no outliner really matches its abilities or polish. I played with the downloadable demo by importing an OPML file I'd created in my old outliner (Opal) and it handled the import flawlessly and the outliner ran faster than Opal too. So I switched. The Pro version has some nice additional features like attachments (including audio), rich text and extra/better themes, but I'm not sure it's yet worth an additional $40 or so to upgrade.

I have tried different organizers but never met such a mulfunctional utility! Really, it's fantastic. All you need is right in one app, moreover it's work very quickly. My friends also use Omni by my recommendations and are totally satisfied.
