List your favourite Apps! Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
In the last few days I've received some excellent recommendations from other Members (and made some, possibly not so excellent!) for Apps that add value in conjunction with Omni's products.

I've opened up this thread in the Omni Lounge so as not to scatter duplicates running across the various iPhone and iPad Boards.

I think it would be really interesting to get Member's recommendations on what they are using and why. I'll start with one of my own.
 
Atomic Web Browser

I've lost count of the number of web browsers that I've either paid for or downloaded for free and after a few minutes use, my reaction as always been "meh!" and I've deleted them.

I gave Atomic a try and ten minutes later I put it in my dock and consigned Safari to my junk folder.

It has tabs (see 1st image), can be customised in an almost infinite number of ways, including the ability to define multi-touch actions, supports scripting and therefore the OmniFocus Bookmarklet (see 2nd image), all with no apparent problems.

For further info. take a look at this link.

I think at 59p (99) it's a bargain. Highly recommended!

Hmm, well for me..
As far as I know, my number and favorite application is..
PVZ or Plants vs Zombies XD
I really love this game :D
It's very addicting :)

Hm, and another one is the iMovie app with it I can edit the videos that i've recorded so I can upload it on youtube or facebook..^^
 
I have gotten an absolutely ridiculous amount of entertainment out of Carcassonne - it's an iPhone version of the boardgame by the same name. For the months of entertainment I've gotten by playing this with friends and coworkers, they should be asking way more than $5 for it.

On the Mac, I've recently become a big fan of 1Password - it helps you make your logins to various websites much more secure. It generates unique passwords for each site - ridiculously long strings of characters, in other words - and then remembers them for you; all you need to remember is the password you choose to unlock 1Password.

Logging into a site is a snap. 1Password adds toolbar buttons to Safari, Firefox, OmniWeb, etc. Choose "take me to this site" from that button, 1Password asks for that password, and then it takes you to the site, fills in the login form, and submits it. Data's synced through Dropbox, there are iPhone/iPad apps, and it looks like they're working on support for Windows and Android. I can't really say enough good stuff abut it.

A few favorites

DEVONthink as a personal information manager.

YNAB (You Need A Budget) for finances.

BusyCal for calendar.
 
Brian, if you're a fan of 1Password for Mac then you should definitely try 1Password for iPad and iPhone as well. The Pro version is a universal app. I sync all three via dropbox.

Actually, I use OmniFocus for iPad and iPhone the most. I'm also using Devonthink on my Mac as well as on the iPad (Devonthink to go). Unfortunately, DTTG isn't able to send links to OmniFocus on the iPad. I'm now trying to combine Alfons Schmidt's NoteBooks (on iPad) with OmniFocus. One can send links to notes and notebooks to OmniFocus actions. (Notebooks in that app are like folders on a Mac while notes can be text, PDFs, web sites, Word or Pages docs, check lists and more.)
 
Hi Steinthal, could you explian better this:
"...One can send links to notes and notebooks to OmniFocus actions.---"

Thanks

Keyboard Maestro and TextExpander have become essential for me. When I have to use someone else's computer, it feels like a step back in evolution.

Others (that have nothing to do with Omni's products):
Day One for journaling, Ableton Live for music, 1Password for not having to remember everything.

Still looking for the perfect note taking app, so there's a spot open. (Right now I use OmniFocus, but I'm still waiting for Alfons Schmids Notebook to come out for the Mac. We'll see.)
 
Feeddler is a great tool for reading RSS feeds. (If you read lots of blogs but don't know what these are, you should check them out. In a nutshell, it's a way of automatically funnelling new blog posts from lots of different blogs into a single list so you can easily keep up with them all without having to jump around. It's especially useful for keeping tabs on particular topics. For example, I have a set of four Apple blogs that collect in a single list that I can quickly scan at odd moments to keep up with the latest.)
