-= Recent version history =-

Version 3.7
• iOS 9 multitasking support
• One-tap access to notes on iPhone. To enable this, some UI was shifted around. The item chevron is gone, replaced by the "item info" toolbar button that previously only existed on iPad. The delete button was removed to make room for this, so swipe-to-delete is the only deletion mechanism.
• iOS 8.0 or higher is now required

Version 3.6
• Added zoom to focus on a single subtree
• Support for iOS 8 and the new iPhones

Version 3.5
• Automatic sync

What's New in Version 3.7.3

• Added an "Add new item" cell to the bottom of each outline
• Bug fixes
• iOS 10 compatibility improvements

Needs full screen mode in landscape

Feb 2016 I've had Outliner since iPad 1, and it's still the best OPML app in the store. And still desperately needs (1) full screen landscape mode and (2) ability to select Dropbox folder for sync. Neither of these are hard.

This is a really good app. It does outlining, just outlining, really well. Which is why it is so frustrating that after 5 years, the developers still haven't released a version adapted to the IPAD. What you get is two iPhone screens sitting next to each other, crowding the space and making it harder to actually write.

Carbonfin, put in full screen landscape mode in the next version. Please!

Old review: Function-wise, this is the best outliner in the store. Although it doesn't have the fancy formatting of omnioutliner, it also doesn't require their proprietary format. And Dropbox sync means I can avoid Carbonfin's sync services, too--that's good.

Problem: as it's been since the beginning, this app in landscape remains two iPhone screens glued together. Full screen mode in landscape would be easier to use with large outlines, better looking, and would prevent me from unwanted touches on the list of outlines. Please, please give us full screen mode in landscape!--as I've been asking for three years now. All other apps do it, so I know you can too!
