I think a lot of people would love to see a nice looking UI like in Things - it is pretty cute and useful and would be 'wow' with the power of OF in background :D

Yes of course, sorry about that, bit of a knee-jerk reaction to a post that I though was totally out of order.

I'm both a former s/w developer myself and a big Omni fan. I'm also very firmly in the camp of trusting you guys to do a great job, and I'm happy to wait as long as it takes to get the best app.

The have always been well designed, trending towards function over form, simplicity and usability instead of eye candy (Maybe Sparkle?).

To that end, for over 8.5 years, I trust OmniGroup, its leadership and their software development skills.

Of the iPad, OmniGraffle is making the deal for all of them.
Keep on riding..

I was not aware of this. I thought the whole "4 second video" was being presented as a beta or even gm product. You guys said it would launch in June 2010, and it is now July 3, so i think that was a safe assumption to make.

Going forward, I highly advise not releasing anything to the public that isn't polished from a graphic design perspective. In this age of iOS, the public not only demands functionality but a slick UI for their $20 or $40 or whatever.

If i worked at Omnifocus, i would quickly release a still mockup of what the finished product might look like. We don't care so much about videos, we know how the iPad works. We want to see nice mockup, with graphics, and icons, not some 4 second mess of a video (no offense, but that video was a mess).

Well, I'll reserve judgement, and give you guys the benefit of the doubt, because i love your iPhone and iMac versions.

Mockup! Mockup! Mockup! Mockup!
(sorry for being impatient)
I'm sure that a lot of people will leave Things (because of their slow development and the missing cloudsync), if the new UI is 'sexy' like the one of Things ;)
I want it to be "beautiful", too (actually, I don't have that much of a problem with the current UI). More importantly, in terms of function, I want it to be the best it can possibly be. All that still doesn't keep me from wanting to "pester".....and ask "When?....approximately when?" Please, please, please!.....even the tiniest of 'hints' will do for me! I'll even take a 'vague' answer ( although not quite as vague as Ken's last post on the blog- ;) ). Maybe you can't do that....but it doesn't keep me from wishing!! Sorry to bother so...but...this IS the age of "instant gratification"....and I fall victim to that much more than I like to say.:o

Sure, the functions are more important :D

And I think it will be in 1,5-2 weeks in the AppStore ;)
All this talk about things for iPad looking good. I can say because I own the crappy app. That is all it has going for it. You can't even make a recurring to do in the damn thing. A pretty UI does not make a useful app. I found this out the hard way by going with Things for the Mac, iPhone, iPad. Then listening to David Sparks on Mac Power Users talk about Omnifocus and realizing it was exactly what I needed.
I have Things on my Mac, iPhone, and iPad. I also have OmniFocus on my Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Having the opportunity to use all of them I prefer to use OF hands down for the functionality.

As for the UI - I like the looks of OF on my Mac the most. I don't know why everyone says the Things looks so great, just doesn't do it for me.
