What's New in Version 2.3.1
Updated for the look and feel of iOS 7.
Great for Long Articles needing Bibliography
I use this updated app to write, not just outline, legal and technical articles that must be proven up by Footnotes with a Bibliography at the end -- This app painlessly integrates the bracketed footnote with the actual source document listed at the end of the paper. This is the only iPad app I have found with this feature -- and I own many writing/outliner/mindmap apps, including OmniOutliner3, (another nice app).
Also, the ability to hide sections (i make each 'paragraph' in the app into a section or chapter when I am writing), lets me focus on just the pieces I am concerned about at the moment.
The word count feature is useful for tracking progress, and is not found in most outliners. I track my words written per session with this feature by typing a tracking box into the title box. Lastly, the 'outline,' or in my case the final draft, opens in other outliners as an opml or in more traditional apps such as Pages or DocstoGo as a txt file, with the Resources section at the end intact. From Pages it is simple to turn the Outline Pro draft into final copy.
Exports to Dropbox, Google, and Box but native to iCloud if you choose that option, which means I do not worry about losing work on the road.
I think this app is ready to graduate to desktop or laptop version - hope the developers are thinking along those lines.
An indispensable app for lawyers
I use Outline Pro all the time in court. It's a wonderful way to organize arguments and be able to call them up and move them around on the fly during a trial or hearing. It's also a great way to create thorough yet fluid deposition outlines. The developer is also very responsive to customer requests and very helpful. My only complaint is that I wish it were a universal app.
Awesome app for outlining. As a pastor this app is a tremendous help in sermon outlining. The only down side is, there is no option to select different fonts, font colors, no bold, no underlining or highlighting. You will have to export to a different app for this. For this reason I can only give it four stars. Please add ability to select fonts.
