• Meet Revan! He lives with April Ramm, Support Human.

    April writes:

    He’s a Sphynx and he loves to tell you things, jump on stuff and knock things on the floor. He’s also fond of sneak attacks and eating your elbow. He is a shoulder cat, and will jump from the floor to your shoulder, digging into whatever he can if he misjudges the distance. He also is actually pretty fond of nail grooming time, and will purr when I trim and file his nails — which makes the shoulder cat thing slightly less terrible.

    We love a dedicated shoulder cat! Who talks! And we love that he’s good about getting his claws trimmed — not every cat is so copacetic.

    Revan is clearly a Very Good Kitty.

  • Lucy the Cat!

    Lucy is a lovable, adorable cat who lives with Ainsley Bourque, OmniPlan Prime Minister.

    Look at all that fluffy fluffiness! And those beautiful, mesmerizing green eyes.

    Who’s a good kitty? Lucy is. She’s a super good kitty.

  • Wake up the kittehs! It’s their turn!

    Meet Cleocatra, who lives with James Rowland, Software Test Pilot here at Omni. James writes that Cleocatra is the “best cat tester with the best cat pun name.”

    Look at that face and that pink nose! Who’s a good kitty? Cleocatra is, that’s who. She’s a real good kitty.

  • The kitchen folks put out French Toast — and eggs, sausage, and bacon — for lunch today.

    You could hear a pin drop in the dining room as everybody was enjoying their breakfast-for-lunch!

  • Which OmniDog Really Likes Belly Rubs?

    Which OmniDog really, really, really likes belly rubs?

    It’s Rosie! She lives with Jim Correia, OmniFocus engineer.

    Jim won’t tell you — given his disdain for hyperbole and his ruthless committment to exactitude — that she’s the best dog. But she is.

    Just look at those crazy-happy eyes!

  • Kitchen folks surprised us with strawberry shortcake! Evan says, “Now it’s summer.”

  • It’s Dire Floofhound of House HuffleFluff — Oliver Cheesy Twist!

    Or just Oliver, to his friends. Which now includes you.

    Oliver lives with Andrea McVittie, User Experience Designer.

    And he’s the best dog. Purely. Simply.

  • Due to popular demand, we have more pictures of Juno! She lives with Kristina Sontag, Omni’s Software Test Manager.

    I know we say it about all the dogs, but still — it’s Juno who’s the best dog. We all know it.

    Kristina writes:

    She does enjoy it when I work from home because she gets to monitor from the most comfortable location in the room.

    Kristina continues:

    Juno doesn’t mind going to the vet for a check up, because she’s a very good dog.

    She is!

  • Mona’s back on the blog — she’s one year old now!

    Have you ever seen such a cute puppy? Maybe almost as cute, sure, but as cute as Mona? We didn’t think so.

    She lives with Steve Schenk, who makes sure Mona gets some time to hang with her friend Mabel.

    Fun fact: dog fanciers worldwide have, for a year now, acknowledged Mona’s position as the best dog.

  • We’ve got three birthdays here today: Jake, Troy, and Evan. Donuts appeared in the snack room. It’s the birthpocalypse!

  • Scout’s back! He’s your favorite golden retriever — and, as his person Reid Callan (OmniGraffle engineer) writes, quite simply, “He’s a good boy.”

    Note from the photographs that he is indeed a certified good puppy. It’s got his name on it and everything.

    But we’d take it one step further, as we are prone to do, and declare for all the world to know — regardless of the consequences; at-me if you dare — that Scout is the best dog.

    Best. Doggo. Period.

  • 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.
