For Mac Eyes Only at Macworld 2013 – Interview: Ken Case of The Omni Group

In Part Two of our Macworld 2013 Show Floor Specials, Barry interviews Ken Case, CEO of The Omni Group.

Barry’s Show Notes

The Omni Group has a suite of Mac and iOS products including OmniFocus, OmniGraffle, OmniPlan and others.

The interview was recorded at Macworld 2013, but delayed for various reasons: all mine, not Mike’s! However, I had some time on a recent flight to edit the interview and due to Ken’s insight, I thought it would still be a great listen, especially as there’s a bit of a lull prior to the announcements this fall from Apple.

In our talk, Ken discusses OmniFocus 2, app design, the Apple App Store, the iPad Mini and several products planned.
