Aeon Timeline brings Visual Timeline Software to your phone or tablet. It is packed with features for creative writers, project management, case management, historians and student projects.

Use iCloud or Dropbox* to sync your timelines between all of your iOS devices and your Mac* or Windows* computers, so that you have your project at the tip of your fingers wherever you like to work.

* Note: Desktop (Mac/Windows) use requires a separate license purchase. Dropbox support requires iOS 11 or later.


Whether you are in the opening stages of planning a novel, in the final stages of editing, or anywhere in between, Aeon Timeline has tools and features to help you understand your characters, avoid plot holes and inconsistencies, and visualise your story in new ways.

With Aeon Timeline 2, you can:
- Model not only the events of your story, but the backstory of each of your characters
- Capture relationships between events and your characters, locations, and story arcs
- Visually group events by character, location, or arc
- Calculate character ages for every event
- Create your own custom fantasy calendar if your story takes place off-world.


A little like a Gantt chart but a lot more flexible, Aeon version 2 allows you to plan multiple projects and keep them up to date throughout their lifetime. We know that few plans can survive the first few weeks of activity, so we make editing and moving your plans intuitive and straightforward.

With Aeon Timeline 2, you can:
- Visually group events by project, employee, location, or resource
- Use dependencies to link events and maintain correct ordering
- With nested events, zoom in for detailed subtasks or zoom out for project overview
- Auto-calculate values such as a parent’s completion percentage or cost from child events
- Add your own custom fields that you wish to track for each event


Our pre-configured editable templates allow you to start a project for just about any reason.

Features for everyone include:
- Select from a range of pre-configured templates or create your own
- Add your own images, external links, notes and research to your events so that you have everything you need linked from a single location.
- Filter events by almost anything, so that you can narrow your focus when trying to identify and resolve specific conflicts
- Zoom to the time scale you wish to see: anything from billions of years to individual minutes and seconds.
- Add bookmarks within your timeline so that you can easily jump between key milestones.
- Choose from a number of timeline styles, including absolute dates, relative dates (Day 1, Day 2), and numeric timelines.

Oo-Gobs of correctness


Aeon timeline, the best timeline software there is, has done it again by adding an iOS version. It works great and syncs perfectly. Outstanding.

Powerful tool for writers, researchers, lawyers


The Mac app is a powerful, sleek timeline tool for writers, researchers, lawyers and project managers. This version brings most of that functionality to the iPad and iPhone. Syncs via iCloud or Dropbox. So you can view, edit, and create simple or complex timelines wherever you are with whatever device you have with you.

Dropbox Support missing... or well hidden


Was hoping to move timelines back and forth from iPad to Desktop, but the iPad version does not seem to support Dropbox. The help article refers to a Locations menu, but there isn't one... if I click the gear I can choose local storage or iCloud storage... but not Dropbox.

Nice bait and switch

Developer Response

Unfortunately, Dropbox support is only available on iOS 11, as the technology we use to implement the feature (the Files app and Files Browser) was only introduced in that version by Apple.

On iOS 9 or iOS 10, you can instead sync your timelines with the Desktop app via iCloud Drive instead. This will work on both Mac and Windows (you will need to install "iCloud for Windows" from Apple in order to access iCloud on Windows).

We tried to make this difference clear in numerous locations throughout our website and help material. For instance, it is listed at the top of the page here:

However, we did unfortunately overlook the mention of Dropbox in the App Store description itself. We will update it to make this clearer for iOS 9 and iOS 10 users in the App Store description when we submit the next update.

Sorry if this has caused any confusion, but hopefully the iCloud Drive option will be suitable for you instead.
