Amazing minimalist interface, but on iPad significant bugs


Update: I forget that every other now and then Apple devices benefit from a restart. That solved the vanishing hierarchy, so I’m bumping my rating from 2 stars to 3. There are still some flow of use clunks (renaming, moving files could be much simpler and is in other apps.
What do I love? Simple interface and look and feel so I can flow with my thoughts instead of wrestle the app (the above issues are not related to outlining, but file management and ease of info out, not in). Library. It is part of my outline and allows me to have one outline of many. Ease of text settings. Well done!

Original review:
I bought the pro after trying this out; however, I soon learned that reopening outlines to edit them (at least on the iPad) causes them to lose all hierarchy. This is basic outline functionality and they don’t have it. They haven’t updated in 4 months, which is fine if they are in a big production cycle, but with bugs like this present, they ought to be pushing out bug updates faster.

Amazing outlining tool with 1 bad bug


I’m not kidding—this app is fantastic. The subscription price is well, well worth the clean interface; the extremely reliable sync between my iPhone, iPad, and Mac; the clear, collapsible outlining structure; the well-organized document pane; and (wow!) the gorgeous and greatly-configurable printing and exporting options.

I have multiple international projects running at any given time and this app allows me easily to jump between all my notes, to quickly find specific details, to link between different notes, and to organize everything so easily.

I was using this multiple times a day on multiple devices and for pretty much all my notes.

But I’m giving it only 3 stars.

There is a major bug which is going to force me to have to transfer all my notes back to OmniOutliner. Editing on the iPad and iPhone very often removes all outline structure by un-nesting all items. This can destroy hours of my time to correct. I’ve emailed the developer about this and will change this to a 5-star review once fixed. Without this problem this app is certainly 5-stars. As it stands, the lost productivity this bug has caused me is immensely frustrating and costly.

Please fix this!

Also, irrelevant to the iOS version, but the Mac version doesn’t print and export (I end up with blank pages for PDFs), so I have to print or export from iOS; and the Mac app also crashes 9 out of 10 times when doing find and replace.

Disappointing development


I was enthusiastic about this app and paid for a subscription under the higher initial rate, but after switching to a subscription model development seems to have stalled rather than becoming more frequent and reliable. Too many small issues got in my way of using this app as other options became available, so I decided not to renew my subscription after one year. (The app hasn’t seen any updates for six months now…) I hope this is a temporary setback and that we will see renewed support from the developer in the future! This was once a very promising app and has a lot of untapped potential…
