Compare More Easily in Apple Mail

In Apple Mail, if you need to work back and forth between two different views of Mail's mailbox contents, you can do so quite easily. For example, you might want to look at a mailbox holding all filtered-in sales orders from the past week while also looking at a smart mailbox showing unanswered customer questions.

To avoid constantly clicking between mailbox views and losing your context each time, choose File > New Viewer window to get a second window and then arrange each window as desired.

If you make excessive use of outlines, as Jeff Carlson does, you’ll appreciate the ability to build and edit them on the iPad.

In this review for Macworld, he touches on the advantages and depths of OmniOutliner for iPad, as well as a few surprising limitations.favicon follow link

Does it have Dropbox capabilities?

It doesn't. The Omni Group has said they don't plan to add Dropbox as an option. I'm not sure why, but my suspicion is that they don't want to rely on a third-party company to host stuff like that (even one with a good track record), in favor of their own iCloud implementation. Or perhaps it has to do with how records within an outline are synced. (Clearly, I'm not a programmer, so I'm just guessing.)
