The Omni Group's OmniGraffle 2 goes universal, adds point editing tools and more

Getting Stuff Done

OmniGraffle 2, the premier diagramming application from The Omni Group, has received an update adding universal support to the $49.99 app.

The update, version 2.1, is live now on the App Store. It requires iOS 8 in order to run, and adds a number of further features besides support for Cupertino’s iPhone handset.

Among these is “a new set of tools for editing the points of a shape,” according to documentation added to The Omni Group’s website. “To use the Point Editing Tools, first select a shape or line on the Canvas, and then tap point editing tool in the bottom toolbar. This makes it much easier to drag existing points, add points, and remove points from an object,” the developer explains.

Further features include:

  • The Loupe—While you might be tempted to think this has something to do with Apple’s main campus (or a bearded man’s blog), think again. The Loupe appears beneath your finger whenever you touch the screen of your iOS device. Use this new tool to align objects or connect lines with pixel-perfect precision.
  • Fill Effects and Filters—We’ve brought OmniGraffle 6.1 for Mac’s Fill Effects and Filters over to OmniGraffle 2.1 for iOS.

Finally, The Omni Group has also launched Stenciltown: a place where iOS device owners can find stencils to use with OmniGraffle 2.1. You can pay a visit to Stenciltown by clicking this link.

The updated OmniGraffle 2 can be downloaded on the App Store now. As mentioned, it’s available for $49.99 and is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
