Best for syncing with iOS

There are very few outliners that sync with a good native iOS app. If that is something you need, this is your best choice. For a while it seemed to be abandonware, but the developer has begun active development again and has been churning out steady incremental updates for some time now. Also, for those who don't like subscriptions, the iOS companion app offers a reasonable single-payment "lifetime subscription." Looking forward to seeing this app grow.

Bring it Back!

I had purchased this app not initially feeling it was abandonware. But as months ticked by, it became concerning. I am glad I kept an eye out as the app served my needs well. During the dark period, I stilled used the app, while trying others like: (OutineEdit, Cloud Outliner Pro, IA Writer, GoodTask and others), nothing fit the need as well as Outliney, and I am so excited they are back developing this awesome app. Keep it going!

has become my standard outliner on all devices

I love using Outlinely because of how easy it is to organize and structure documents. Editing text is easy and powerful. The origanizational features are strong. I can work across my MacBook, iPhone, & iPad without worry.

I'm delighted to see Outlinely being updated again and the addition of useful features.
