Omniweb and ipad

If Omnni Group somehow build a business case for Omniweb on the iPad, along with Omnigraffle, count me in. I
still cling to OmniWeb on my laptop and desktop. To replace my aging MacBook Pro with iPad, I need on that
platform a browser, an Open Office replacement, OmniGraffle, and preferably OmniOutliner. 

Conversely, if I get all of the above without OmniWeb on the iPad, then I'll dump OmniWeb everywhere in favor
of Safari or Firefox (assuming Firefox ports to iPad).

Re: Omniweb and ipad

Was there any mention of handwriting at all with the iPad?  Did I miss it.  Apple has the technology.  Why not
write "milk" with a finger or stylus in your to-do list instead of pulling up the keyboard app?

Re: Omniweb and ipad

Yeah they showed off painting in Keynote with your finger. So it's not handwriting recognition per se. But
actual handwriting.

Handwriting recognition has the same fundamental problems as voice
recognition: it is CPU-intensive and it needs user training.

Re: Omniweb and ipad

I've been impressed with the handwriting recognition in Windows 7.
It's been a while since I've used InkWell on my Mac.

My daughter uses the Chinese handwriting keyboard on my iPhone.
It works pretty well.

And I downloaded an iPhone math game - Write Answer: Sums - that 
lets you use your finger for writing the answer:
http://www.maximile.net/

None of those require the user to train the software to recognize
the handwriting. But they may be CPU intensive.

I also found a pen (Pogo Stylus) that works with the iPhone:
http://tenonedesign.com/stylus.php

But this is moving off-topic for OmniWeb. I'd much rather OmniGroup
put effort into getting OmniGraffle on iPhone and iPad. I haven't
seen a diagramming tool on any platform that I like as well. I'd 
pay for that.

According to this your wishes for Omni's productivity apps, at least, should be answered:
