The Omnigroup, makers of the incredibly usable and inuitive Mac flowchart software OmniGraffle, have released a beta version of their new project management tool OmniPlan.

With OmniPlan, you can create logical, manageable project plans with Gantt charts, schedules, summaries, milestones, and critical paths. Break down the tasks needed to make your project a success, optimize resources, and streamline budgets. It's project management made painless.

After 15 minutes playing around, I'ld say it looks good, but maybe a bit pricey at $149. Although there are a wealth of export options, I think I'ld still pefer a web-based solution that allows all members of a team concurrent access to project information, although the desktop app wins hands-down in terms of speed and usability.
