OmniPlan: Project planning made painless. Free 2-week trial.

OmniPlan is designed to help you visualize, maintain, and simplify your projects. Break down tasks, optimize the required resources, control costs, and monitor your entire plan—all at a glance. Collaborate with your colleagues and share every detail, update a calendar with your days off, or mix and match. Accept and reject changes one-by-one or all in one go.

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.

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 We’ll keep your suggestion in mind as we continue to evaluate ways to support enterprise customers. Thanks!

Easy to Use & World Class Support


Simple and easy to use, but with enough features for serious planning.

I use this software in wide range of applications. From putting together a few simple milestones to align on roles and responsibilites with a small group to putting together a complex multi year project that require collaboration from multiple departments.

Built in reports are clean, informational and breeze to export and share with teams on progress of projects.
Dashboard feature is nice to see how multiple projects stack up with resources
Monte Carlo simulation is a great feature. So far, they have proved more accurate than some of my planning
Awesome support team- quick to reply and quick to resolve issues

I can’t think of any right now.
