No, they don’t say that outright, but with the dramatic price increase last year (from $60 to $100 for the unlocked Mac app, from $20 to $50 for the iOS app), plus the 2020 roadmap not mentioning a single new feature for the app, it looks like they’re uninterested in new customers.

It’s a stable, powerful app, but it’s clunky, and with the exception of columns I think I’m going to have to look at alternatives.

Satis,
Take a look at SheetPlanner. We have an amazing roadmap that goes way beyond anything available today.

2.0 will be a huge and free update in April or May.

Thanks,
Peter

I could live without OmniOutliner. Curio has been a real delight to use in recent weeks, but outlining can be done a lot of different ways. The columns in OO are nice, but I end up not using them much.

I’ve got something going at the moment that I outlined in OO, but I’ve also been thinking about migrating away from it. OmniGroup seems to have forgotten it’s there, and I don’t really need a separate outlining tool. At one point I thought it was pretty cool, but I’ve started thinking in simpler terms.

Wow - that’s a nice looking application. I need to check that out. Is it dependent on cloud services? For some reason, having to sync to the clouds is off-putting to me.

Amontillado,
Its a native Mac app. Documents can reside on a local drive or on cloud storage. Not dependent on cloud but can leverage cloud storage.

Version 2 will support multiple outlines (or as we call them ‘sheets’ in the same document with a sidebar and folders to organize them, plus syncing between devices and much more robust printing.

The standard edition which is what is available now is a one time purchase. At a future date when we release a collaboration version we might consider a subscription model but that’s yet to be determined.

Check out SheetPlanner on the Mac App Store. You can download a 21 day trial and then pay $49.95 in the US if you want to purchase it to keep using the app after the trial expires.
Regards,
Peter
