What's New in Version 2.5.2
Updates for iOS 9 support.
Too Clunky for the Price
I was looking for an outlining app that had a drag-and-drop interface to help me organize my thoughts for writing or brainstorming complex website structures. I would use it a lot for work so I was willing to pay for something good, and I overlooked the cheap and free apps. For $10 I really expected something fluid and high-end. But, the basic function of the app -- the dragging and dropping to reorder content -- is not smooth at all. I took multiple tries at moving a bullet point, and finally gave up. This is on top of the fact that I can't change colors or fonts. The entire interface feels clunky. The app feels old -- and perhaps part of the issue is that I'm on an iPad Pro and it's not ready for the Pro yet. But, I spent $10 on something I deleted after 5 minutes, so I thought I should let others know before they waste $10 themselves. I did try to leave the developers feedback directly from the app, but the form was unusable.
Thank you for coming back, you were one of the best apps I had in my collection, and was very disappointed when you could not find the time to update your app.
Please don't leave again, at the very least hand it off to someone else. To those that have not bought the app, there is nothing like it on the market, and believe me I looked.
I even tried to talk to my son which is a programmer to make me an app, he said he didn't have the time.
Ideal tool for helping students to outline
So excited that this app is back!
Outline Pro is a great tool for having students work with outlines before writing essays. It provides the ideal template for essays, and allows students to easily manipulate and arrange their ideas.
It would be great to have the app support the iPad Pro and iOS 9 multitasking.
