It’s Great

Wondeful application. Very easy to learn — just go to the menu and select Help -> Outlinely Help. It opens a short document that explains everything there is to the program.

I’m currently using it to outline a novel. The only thing I feel like it’s missing right now is a word-count feature. Other than that, this app is perfect. It allows me to write extremely long outline and organize them, all while being asthetically appealing. It makes writing my outlines a real joy.

a user’s guide is needed

I downloaded this app last year and only used it once because it is way to obscure and have no instructions at all (if I remember correctly). A month ago, I reopened it out of boredom and took some time to learn to use it. It’s totally worth it! Now I cannot write papers without this app and find it really does a good job at outlining (but just outlining, nothing more). Anyway, I love this app and truely suggest the developer take some time to make a user’s guide...


Incredibly difficult and counterintuitive to use.
Wish I had never purchased.
