Buying Omni applications for iOS

Supported Apps

We are in the process of rolling out these purchasing options for all of our iOS apps. Currently, this article is accurate for OmniFocus 3.9 for iOS, OmniGraffle 3.15 for iOS, and OmniOutliner 3.6 for iOS. See this article for purchasing information about purchasing OmniPlan 3 for iOS.

All of our Omni applications for iOS are available as a stand-alone purchase for a one-time fee, or as a monthly/annual subscription.

The stand-alone traditional In-App Purchase option lets you purchase the current version of our iOS application (this includes any same-version updates) upfront with a one-time fee. This purchase does not include new major version releases (though we provide a discount for folks that would like to upgrade).

The subscription option is a great way to get one of our applications on all of your devices—Mac, iPhone, and iPad—for one price. Subscription gives you the option to pay monthly or yearly for access to OmniFocus, OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, or OmniPlan and also includes any new versions we ship in the future.

Omni Account

An Omni Account is required in order to start a trial, make a stand-alone purchase, or purchase a subscription. This means no matter where you download and purchase our app, your Omni Account will keep track of your trials and purchases. Read more on Omni Accounts here).

This process applies to all supported apps!

The buying options and purchasing process detailed in this article is the same for all supported applications (see note above). The screenshots below use one specific applications for illustration purposes, but the same steps are applicable to users purchasing all of our apps.



iOS App Store Stand-Alone Purchase

Our iOS apps are available as a free download in the iOS App Store. A free 14-day trial starts when signing in with an Omni Account, and In-App Purchases fully unlock the Standard or Pro feature sets. This purchase and download is tied to your Apple ID in the iOS App Store.

If you’ve decided to purchase an Omni iOS app, start by downloading the application through the iOS App Store. If you’re upgrading from an earlier version, you’ll also need to have the earlier version installed in order to validate your upgrade discount.

Unlocking iOS apps for new users

  1. On your iOS device, open the App Store, then locate and download the iOS application you wish to purchase. There’s only one download for both Standard and Pro users.

  2. Open the app. On first launch, you’re asked whether you’d like to use the locked Free Viewer mode or Sign in or Sign Up to start your 14-day trial. Tap Sign in or Sign Up to start your trial.

  3. When you’re ready to purchase the app, open the In-App Purchases window via the In-App Purchases item in the Settings menu or via the Unlock button in the trial bar. The In-App Purchases window allows you to choose a stand-alone iOS purchase or a subscription. If you’re sure you just want to purchase a stand-alone license, tap the top purchase card.
