OmniGraffle 3 App Description & Overview

The applications OmniGraffle 3 was published in the category Productivity on 2017-07-12 and was developed by The Omni Group. The file size is 353.67 MB. The current version is 3.6 and works well on 11.3 and high ios versions.

• Diagram Layout — The new “Connected Objects” option in the Diagram Layout inspector allows you to use the Layout Now option without accidentally moving content that isn’t connected by lines in your diagram (like a header, footer, or logo).
• Sample Documents and Templates — The sample documents and templates have been updated to take advantage of the new Connected Objects option and the new line routing changes. You can get the new versions in the Document Browser by tapping Restore Sample Documents from the gear menu when you’re on the Documents tab or by tapping Restore Bundled Templates from the same gear menu when you’re on the Templates tab. Fresh copies of all bundled content will also be installed with a fresh installation of the app.
• Point Editing Tool — The Point Editing tool will not interact with locked objects anymore.
• Undo — Fixed a bug that prevented undo from restoring a text label to its previous position.

OmniGraffle 3 Reviews


Wonderful app with desktop power  cbarrick  5 star

Omnigroup has done an amazing job of bringing Mac desktop power to the iPad. Works amazingly well with the Apple Pencil too.


Stability Issues  Paluchador  2 star

Seems like a very robust version of OmniGraffle, but it closes my document constantly. Should have waited before upgrading to Pro.


Omni takes pride in their apps  font9b  5 star

It is nearly feature parity with OmniGraffle for Mac. That’s incredible. The interactions are well thought out for this new iPad interaction paradigm. While not as efficient for drawing as on a Mac, the fact that I can go between the two, sharing the between my platforms in the cloud is amazing.


Not at all loving that they killed prior versions  Leigh2323  2 star

Fifty something bucks was a lot to spend on an iPad app in the first place. That they kill off the old versions and make you have to buy upgrades is a non-starter I get that omnigroup is one of the few independent OS X/ iOS software houses left, and that they have to make enough money to stay in business. But they have got to figure out a different way to monetize their mobile apps. Maybe try a subscription model guys, because nobody expects to have to pay for app upgrades on iOS, at any price point. And certainly not at 50-100 bucks. You might sell more licenses at 10 bucks a year.

Convoluted money grab  Dwayne from Pinpoint  1 star

Spent $79 for this app, that’s a lot for an iPad app. Now they’ve “updated” and I’m back to a free version that won’t let me do anything. Have tried to get the upgrade price, it fails. Have tried to restore purchases, it fails. Basically, if you want to pay for this app, decide if it’d be more fun to burn that money in your back yard, or give it to the OmniGroup. It’s basically the same thing, but you don’t get to watch it actually burn if you give it to them. Note: this review comes from someone that’s been an OmniGroup customer for 15ish years. I’ve advocated for them, bought countless licenses for my business and have been a loyal customer...until today.


3.0 won’t work on pro  rubberneck67  1 star

Just doesn’t want to work on my iPad Pro. Why?


Nice but crashes often  walk4health  2 star

I’m running the latest iOS 11.1 on an iPad Pro 9.7 creating a simple process flow diagram, and OmniGraffle has crashed on me at least 20 times. Restarting iPad did not improve the instability issues. It’s a nice, highly polished app, but I’m hoping they can improve stability. It’s just too aggravating at this point to try to use it with the constant crashing.


No to 3  Soreal  1 star

I’ve been using all of the Omni products, both Mac and IOS since the beginning. Ofocus, OOutiner and Ograffle have been my go-to and most recommended apps. I absolutely hate version 3 of OmniGraffle. It’s non-intuitive and unusable. Half my time now is spent trying to figure out where something is or how to do something that was super simple in the past. It’s a fail.

No where close to usable  Pall R  1 star

Expansive marketing but very little functionality. If you want to do anything more than basic rectangles and circles, find something else. I can create better diagram on KeyNote!


Gesture Issues  Cycles4Fun  2 star

The UI updates are very good and intuitive (especially if you are familiar with previous versions). But this latest version has huge problems with the gestures I’ve used from earlier versions. For example I use “Duplicate” very often. I touch and hold the object and then two-finger tap where I want the duplicate to be. Instead of duplicating the object, the original object displays it is selected. The older versions would have selected the original object as soon as it was touched. If I two-finger tap a second time the object will be duplicated. This is very awkward. Another problem is that if I tap and hold an object and then two-finger tap (which selects the first object) and then remove my finger from the original object and tap-off to unselect the first object a selection circle is displayed randomly on the screen. If I tap-off again then a selection bubble is displayed. It takes 3 tap-offs to fully clear the selection. I use an iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil and this issue displays regardless of the proximity of the Apple Pencil. I use this tool professionally and this is costing me time. Please fix the gesture issues and I will bump this back up to 5 stars because the new UI is great.


Desktop quality app in palm of your hands  Ttiangels_  5 star

I often find omni apps on phone hard to use due to their crowded and complicated Uis. But OmniGraffle 3 certainly improves in that department. As matter of fact it’s a leap forward. Very good app and a good library of image to use. There are so many features and countless possibilities that I can’t simply write about them in a few words. Fortunately 2 week trial time was more than enough for me to see what potential this app holds. Takes time to learn a bit but as matter of fact you can learn most of its feature just by playing around and this is achieved by having an amazing UI. Very good source of help as well. It’s a vey good app for designers considering you have iPad cuz i found out using the app on phone specially if you are not on plus is a bit hard. Price is good- I recommend to try the trial and make sure you choose the right version (between standard and pro) for yourself cuz in my line of work the pro features are not useful. Overall a professional and desktop quality app on your phone. Thanks
