Description

This is OmniOutliner 5: a flexible, svelte, and focused app for creating, collecting, and organizing information and ideas. OmniOutliner Essentials is simple—everything you need to get started. Pro adds powerful features like smart columns, password protection, keyboard shortcuts, and plenty more. Try out both for free!

Use an outline to put structure on new ideas, rearrange them and construct beautiful documents for sharing with built-in themes. But it’s way more than just an outlining tool—you’ve got multiple columns, smart checkboxes, pop-up lists, and a fantastically rich styles system.

Draft a simple to-do list, create an agenda for a meeting, take notes, plan events, write anything from diaries to screenplays, or any other task that calls for structured text.

FREE TRIAL (AVAILABLE VIA IN-APP PURCHASE)

With the free two week trial, you can try all of the features of Essentials and Pro. After the trial, you can continue to use OmniOutliner to view documents for free.

Amazing Editor

I love Omni Outliner. It makes writing things down somuch fun!

Looking good so far

I’m still in the 14 day trial period, and I am impressed with OmniOutliner so far. I will probably end up purchasing the app, just have to decide whether to just do the $10 for Essentials or go full out for the Pro Version at $59.99. I never really used an Outliner, but since trying this out I can see where this could be a valuable tool.

I’ve been using OmniFocus for years and love the quality of the apps from OmniGroup.
