Minor fixes and improvements
Ratings and Reviews
A good outliner that allows for hierarchy folders and files that can be expanded or retracted - There are very few apps that will do this. Also the Sync is flawless all the time and I have only had one time in 3-4 months that I moved around a lot of folders and had a crash that lost the changes; but beyond that it has been very reliable. There are other good apps outliner like Notebooks where you can also have many levels of nested file structure but where the sync is not instant and completely unreliable so what good are they. This app is stable and can be counted on and accessed from any device.
It is missing a couple key ingredients (there is no perfect app available) such as the ability to print. I copy and paste into notability and print fro there and it retains the structure but not the formatting. It also does not have the ability to attach files so it cant be used for information storage and retrieval. I use Notability for that too but it does not have a file hierarchy beyond a folder with underlings and no further hierarchy(much like Evernotes same major restriction) It would also be great to be able to use it more for tasks if it had tagging (context) and alerts.
For a reliable Outliner with and expandable and retractable file structure and unlimited hierarchy levels structure, it may be the best option available today
OK, but flawed
I've been trying to understand how to work with this app for about two hours now. I have purchased both the MacOS version and the iOS version, because I like to work interchangably between my iPad Pro (with either smart keyboard or bluetooth keyboard) and my MacBook Air, depending on where I am.
A big glaring problem for me is that the app keyboard shortcuts don't work in the iOS version. It seems that you can accomplish *most* of the same editing on the iOS version, but this involves memorizing a bunch of graphic signs used on iOS, in addition to memorizing the many keyboard shortcuts available on the Mac.
I have been unable to find how to put a newline into a note on iOS. There may be a way, but I can't find it and the documentation is weak. I'm may have some very long notes for my project, and it would be nice to separate them into parragraphs in iOS. On the Mac there is a keyboard combo that allows you to put a newline into a note.
Beyond that, it seems that folders contain outlines. But it isn't clear to me that you need an explicit folder to start an outline.
This is confusing.
Beyond that, there is little coordination between the app and it's representation in iCloud. I deleted my test outlined, but they were still there in iCloud.
Seems like I'm out of space. Recognizing these problems, I think I can use the app. But I wish they would fix it.
Outstanding! Has many unexpected uses.
I’ve been using this app since just after it was made available on iTunes.
For several months, I considered to be simply a nice outlining app.
But then I tried using it in ways that some might consider unconventional.
For instance, one of the uses is a grocery shopping list.
I create a new list for each store that I go to...Costco, Walmart, etc. then I add a line item for everything I might purchase at each store.
Then when it’s time to make a shopping list, I “uncheck all” and put a checkmark next to the items as I put them in my shopping cart.
Since I have the “auto hide check items” turned on, the items I’ve already put in the cart disappear from the list and I see only the things that haven’t been put in the cart yet. Genius!
It is sooooo much faster than any other shopping cart app I’ve used.
And since it works on my Mac via the cloud, I can make my list on one device and it automatically shows up on my (or my wife’s) phone. Love it!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
