Customer Reviews

Best overall of the many I tried. My "go to" "to do" app

Love this app! And I am not easily pleased.

The focus feature is HUGELY beneficial and not matched by others I have tried. Worth having this app for this feature alone.

As an avid outliner user for projects and to do lists, I find this is the most stable, feature appropriate, and easy to use of the many outline apps I have used on my iPhone 6 and two iPads. Syncs quickly and accurately.

My only three additional requests from Carbonfin would be (1) notes, (2) a night mode and (3) a Mac app, however the web version is adequate for me. Of course I would prefer more than "adequate." Though my second and third too choices for iOS outliners have one or more of these features, this is still my preferred everyday outliner because it is just that superior.

Though there is room for improvement its utility still ranks above the others plus the developer is continually upgrading therefore I give it 5 stars.

finally switched to something better

I have used this app for a long time but have finally switched to something better. The developer just refused to respond to users pleas for enhancements that would make it so much better. I have switched to Cloud Outliner Pro where you can make entries different colors and can change font sizes. Something I asked for many times from the developer of this app. There are so many app designers that are abandoning their apps, now. You start to rely on a productivity tool and then it just gets old and decrepit.

Excellent outline app

I have used this app for a number of years and it stays on all my devices and is used constantly. If you're looking for an outline app this is a must for you!
