OmniOutliner starts as a blank page. But as you collect, compose, and rearrange text, its powerful outlining features emerge to organize your ideas. Hierarchy, columns, styling, notes — use them all in concert or keep things simple, depending on the project at hand. From basic lists and tables to serious writing and data wrangling, OmniOutliner understands how to keep your work structured and tidy.
Why choose OmniOutliner for iOS?
COMFORT: OmniOutliner was designed with speed and ease in mind, especially for data entry. Carefully-planned keyboard interactions and the ever-present Edit bar make it straightforward to add and rearrange items. Your ideas are what’s important — OmniOutliner just helps you get them in order.
STRUCTURE: Expand and collapse groups to concentrate on what’s important now. Use the Add row button's flyout mode to put new items right where you need them. And of course, just drag items around when you need to rearrange the order. If you need to make a bigger change, use Edit mode to move or modify a bunch of rows at once.
COLUMNS: Checkboxes, formatted numbers, pop-up lists, dates… Keep track of any number of different fields in each row. If you have too many columns to see at once, you can hide some. Or just drag around to get at the ones you’re interested in. You can even sort your rows by any column, then restore their original order.
STYLES: Thanks to the included templates and styles, you may never need to adjust anything yourself. But if you want to, check out our custom rich-text editor, with more detailed styling than you’re likely to find anywhere else on iOS. Save your favorites as named styles, for quick and consistent styling across your document. Configure rows to be styled based on their hierarchy. You can even apply styles from a template to your current document.
NOTES: Inline notes make it easy to keep track of ideas for future revisions, ancillary content, reviewers’ comments, ill-considered notions, snide jokes, and other miscellaneous info. You can attach notes to any row in a document, and show or hide them individually or en masse. And of course, notes can be styled just as precisely as the main content.
LINKS & ATTACHMENTS: Web addresses you type automatically get linkified. And any image you can copy and paste, from tiny embellishments to sketches from a drawing app to full-sized photos, can be placed right in your outline.
SHARING: OmniOutliner has no shortage of ways to share your documents. Sync your documents automatically via OmniPresence, our sync technology, or send them via email in several formats: OmniOutliner, OPML, HTML, DOCX, CSV, or plain text.
New features to OmniOutliner 2 include:
• Templates: Turn any document into a reusable template, or use one of the beautiful built-in options.
• Style Theming: Use the styles from an existing template to style any other document.
• External keyboard support: Outline faster! Navigate around your document, rearrange rows, and add new content, all without touching the screen.
• Folders: Organize your many outlines with folders. If you sync with OmniPresence, the same folders appear on your Mac.
• Export formats: Share more flexibly with the new DOCX and CSV formats.

Good but needs better cloud integration and more
I work in outlines a lot. I love the basic features of Omnioutliner 2 but find it extremely frustrating to use across multiple machines. It's lack of solid cloud integration is very frustrating, forcing one to use their cloud sync platform instead of simply and elegantly integrating with iCloud, Box and Dropbox. While I can store on the cloud for the desktop version, the iPad version seems to not easily grab those files. Why not?
I still end up falling back on Onenote for a full function, easy to sync outliner and note taker, when Omni does so much better a job than Onenote for outlining.
Since I also use it for writing projects, I'm now finding that I prefer Scrivener for a more complete writers outlining tool.
Come on guys, you charge a lot of money for this app, compared to others, let's make it worth it.
Helps me organize my thoughts
This is an ingenious tool to help me get my thoughts into one place and organize them in a coherent way in preparation for action. By being able to quickly add or move an idea into a more logical "set", tasks can be organized and prioritized while all other information related to each task can be included for ease of completion. This is a real life saver for my company's management team.
Best outliner for iOS and Mac
Just fantastic, like everything The Omni Group develops. A triump of design and functionality. It's what software should be: minimal and flexible until you need more power, and then it makes it all available in ways that an iOS user expects. I cannot think of a better outliner on any platform.
