omnifocusThe Omni Group today released OmniKeyMaster, a Mac app designed to allow users who purchased older Mac App Store versions of the company’s software to access discounted upgrades in the future. The app locates installed Omni apps and generates new licenses that unlink the software from the Mac App Store.

OmniKeyMaster is a simple app that finds App Store copies of Omni apps installed on your Mac, then generates equivalent licenses from our store - for free. This gives Mac App Store customers access to discounted pricing when upgrading from the Standard edition to Professional, or when upgrading from one major version to the next.

Another benefit: since they don't have to wait in an approval queue, our direct releases sometimes get earlier access to new features and bug fixes. OmniKeyMaster lets App Store customers access those builds, as well.

Though the apps allow users to access upgrade pricing in the Omni store, it does not provide them with App Store versions of upgraded apps.


The Omni Group produces Mac apps like OmniFocus, OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, and OmniPlan, among others.

OmniKeyMaster can be downloaded at no cost from the Omni website.

It'd be nice if Apple would just allow paid updates and discount pricing for existing customers.

They also have great customer support.
I'll second this - I've been using OmniPlan for the last couple of weeks under a trial version, and the support I've received even before becoming a paid customer has been exceptional (and this new KeyMaster app is another perfect example of their dedication to existing customers).

Now the trial is ending, I am going to upgrade to the full paid version in a heartbeat.
