OmniOutliner for iPad v1.5 is a major update that adds automatic document syncing through OmniPresence. (This release requires iOS 6.) This app is an outlining app like no other for your iPad. If you have a need to outline thoughts, ideas, arguments, papers, notes and more, you should look at this app.
With this update, OmniGroup introduces OmniPresence that is designed to work with any Mac app that supports OS X’s auto save and versions. According to the developer “OmniPresence lets your app know when a document has been changed on another device, and double-checks to make sure it always syncs a current and complete copy of any documents currently being edited. OmniPresence can’t prevent conflicting edits from multiple devices—but when that happens it automatically saves both versions of conflicting edits so that no edits are lost.”
You can learn more about the app at the OmniGroup’s page that explains OmniOutliner for iPad.

Today, OmniOutliner updated to version 1.2. Besides the new app logo, the developer states the following about the update:
OmniOutliner 1.2 for iPad sets the stage for document syncing by introducing a new document browser and making a number of behind-the-scenes changes to coordinate access to documents. It also introduces a new app icon, and restores the ability to open attached OmniOutliner 3 files from Mail. (This release requires iOS 5.)
• The document picker has been redesigned to allow quicker access to files and easier file management. Tap on the edit button and select a file(s) to access the sharing, duplicate, and delete options.
• OmniOutliner for iPad now has a new icon.
• Sample documents can now be restored using the ‘Restore Sample Document’ option in the import menu.
• Previews will now appear in the document picker for any file type that OmniOutliner can open.
