• Here’s Frankie!

    She lives with Chris Pruitt, who writes:

    She loves herding my cats and enjoys trips to the dog park to meet all of the people there. She also loves her Lambchop toy and dressing up like a bee. And sometimes she can be photogenic.

    Well, we’re quite sure she’s always photogenic!

    And (purely FYI) a representative cross-section of dog-lovers have, after no debate whatsoever — because it wasn’t needed — reached consensus that Frankie is, indeed, the best dog.

  • You’ve already met Rua, Jenna’s dog, the dog who can drive in the rain! And who is the best dog.

    Anyway, here’s a picture that didn’t get posted the first time, but that is adorable.

  • Meet Rosie!

    She lives with OmniFocus engineer Jim Correia, who writes:

    Rosie bounced around between a few homes and a shelter before finally finding her forever home in 2014. She was formerly known as Fudge and as Girly, and she spent a few awkward months without any name at all.

    Rosie splits her time between being a city/office dog and living in the country. She loves coming to Omni, going for walks, playing tug, snuggling on the couch, and protecting her family from attack squirrels. Wet Noses are her favorite treats, but she thinks the treats from the 3 O’coffee walk to Herkimer are pretty OK, too.

    In the first picture she’s sitting on the bench outside her favorite local coffee joint, patiently waiting for that treat, while on the lookout for those mean squirrels — exactly as a best dog would do. Which she is.

  • Marc Kastner reviews OmniFocus 3 for iOS beta in My thoughts on OmniFocus 2 versus 3:

    OmniFocus 3 is a great successor to an already great app. The newly updated design makes it more visually pleasing.

    Especially on the iPad, the new updates feels a gigantic leap. It comes much closer to the Mac, when relying on it in daily life; for example if you don’t have access to a Mac at work.

  • Meet Rita!

    She lives with Willow, who says:

    Rita (aka My Little Outlaw) retired from a lackluster career as a racer, and became the speediest needle on the Support team.

    She “helps” with gardening, does a fine blep, and is sad when she can’t play with Mabel. She is a champion napper and will nap halfway off her bed, on a bed made for a smoll dog, or, most convenient of all, on my feet.

    Rita is not just built for speed — she’s long been recognized, by unanimous proclamation, as the best dog.

  • Meet Oliver!

    Oliver (middle) is helping Andrea (left, Oliver’s person) and Jake (right) through a thorny design problem in OmniGraffle.

    That’s right — Oliver writes code! Not at all surprising, given that he’s the best dog.

  • OmniFocus 3.0 for iOS is scheduled to come out May 30!

    It’s always possible the date could be different, just because it does have to go through the App Store review process. But May 30 is the plan — and we’re super-excited!

  • Meet Rua!

    Rua lives with Jenna Volcko, who writes:

    Rua loves to run, swim, play in the snow and most of all…snuggle.
    She is picky with treats, but not with getting pets - she loves making new friends everywhere she goes.
    Rua’s name means “red haired” in Irish Gaelic - which is fitting for the red haired golden retriever.

    I’d add that not only can she drive — in the rain! which most dogs can’t do! — but that she is indeed the very best dog.

    Getting close to sending out another round of TestFlight invitations for OmniFocus 3 (iOS). We’re planning to double our test pool again — which means inviting everyone who signed up by noon PST on February 13.

  • Here’s Mara the Safety Dog!

    Sure, most of us sit in front of computers all day and don’t play with fire. Mostly.

    But still, safety is important — and Mara, who lives with Molly Reed — is the best safety dog there is.

    Scratch that. She’s. The. Best. Dog. Period.

  • Here’s Scout! He’s pretty new — a golden retriever puppy who lives with Reid Callan, an OmniGraffle engineer.

    Scout — already, at his young age, claiming the title of Best Dog — is so smart he can do things on the internet: he has his own Instagram account!

    Who’s a good boy? Scout is. Scout’s a good boy.

  • Meet Mabel! She lives with Dave Messent (OmniFocus Prime Minister).

    Mabel can read! And do things on computers! The pictures make it clear that she’s the best dog.

  • Here’s Mona! First as a puppy, and then here she is a little older and pretending to sleep. And then just look at how well-defended that potted plant is!

    Water-cooler gossip has it that Mona is the best dog. We think it’s obvious.

    She lives with Steve Schenk and has her own Instagram account.

  • OmniDog: Appa

    This is Appa, named for Avatar Aang’s six-legged sky bison. She lives with Tim Wood, who says, “She isn’t creamy with arrows, but has the fluff, jump height, sleepy groans, and drool.”

    People far and wide consider her the best dog, because she so clearly is.
