LinkBack and Apple

March 8th, 2005 · 3 Comments

Several people have asked how Apple feels about LinkBack. We actually talked to several different people at Apple about this last year. They basically felt like LinkBack would be useful and they encouraged us to go for it. Getting Apple to be actively involved in LinkBack, of course, is a whole other matter. The primary place I would like to see Apple support LinkBack is in Keynote. A number of graphics apps are signing on to this, so I think supporting LinkBack could really help make some Keynote user’s lives much easier.

    Actually, getting the blessing of the MacBU would be quite great too ! Finally Omni graffle embedding in PPT ;-)

    Nisus Express is my word processor and Omnioutliner does a half doezen thing for me each day. So, I like the idea of linkback. Keep pushing it. It is a far better thing to work hand and glove than to build an app that does it all (as the bloated Word).

    FYI – even if Apple don’t pick up the ball with LinkBack (or at least, not for a while), the guy how offered a web page plugin for Keynote 1.x, is now working on a LinkBack plugin for Keynote 2.x:

    Keynote 2 LinkBack Plugin — though it’s not ready for release, yet…
