Simple and fast, all I need and most likely you as well


Outlinely is simple and fast tool when you need to think things through, outlining is obviously very easy, themes and sharing is nice and works well. I use it often because it is there and works well.

It is marketed as a premium app, without however working several bugs and ux improvements for quite a while now.
Providing support isn’t sufficient as we generally expect an active team and a live product, which are not provided.
I not happy, nor hopeful.



I’ve been using this app for a couple of months now for outlining chapters for school. It is very handy and easy to use but there are a few things that would make it better. Right now I am using the app for my chemistry class, and the ability to type superscripts and subscripts would be awesome. Also, I wish that my outline was searchable. I’ve been transferring the outline to Microsoft Word so I can search it which is ok, but being able to acheive this in the app would be ideal. One last thing, is the lines that show the indentations are helpful, but they do not show up when I print. I originally wanted to use this app for my mandatory outlines for a class but my teacher said it just looked like a page of words and those distinctions are necessary.

Overall I still use the app and will continue to use it, but these few things would make it better.
