Omni’s Plans for iOS 7

Ken Case:

The old versions of OmniFocus for iPhone, OmniOutliner for iPad, and OmniPlan for iPad will be removed from the App Store. If you’re not planning on updating to iOS 7 or need a version of any of these apps that runs on iOS 6 for any reason, you’ll want to grab them before the new releases ship. However, please note that we don’t plan on doing any more work on these iOS 6 apps: our iPhone and iPad development efforts are now fully focused on iOS 7.

If you have an iPhone 3GS or for some reason don’t plan to upgrade to iOS 7, you’ll need to keep your own backups of any apps that you use. The App Store makes it easier to buy apps and to update them, but it’s not designed for folks with older hardware or OS versions.
