WorkFlowy is a beautiful tool for taking notes and making lists. Simple to use, but incredibly powerful, WorkFlowy can help you manage all the information in your life.

″This app is the easiest, best-designed, and most-flexible note-taker I’ve ever come across, and it solves many of the problems I’ve had with other software ... It has become my go-to place for storing and keeping track of everything—not just to-dos and grocery lists, but my ideas for articles, all the notes I gather while reporting, all the tasks I need to do for those articles, and even all of the stuff I’m gathering for a book I’m working on.″

What's New in Version 1.2.10
Fixed a display alignment bug when the app cannot connect to the internet and you aren't logged in yet.
Less really is more! My digital whiteboard
In all my years with Apple this is my first review. I'm a productivity and GTD guy and I've tried a lot of tools. I usually end up back at Evernote trying to force "the Secret Weapon", because tasks become projects and you usually need more than a task manager, which Evernote is not. Don't get me wrong, couldn't live without EN. I almost dismissed WF out of the gate due to the old school look and feel, but the simplicity is really what you need. You can draft agenda's, story's, keep team notes, personnel notes, account notes, task or projects lists, any list. You can infinity expand and and use tags. The clincher for me was that you can share or just copy/paste to word and the bullet points transfer perfectly. So your not trapped in the app. I use it from the web on my work laptop and on my iPad and iPhone via the app. Michael Hyatt has it right, everything seems to start on WF now for me.
My first negative review after 4+ years of iPad apps
Rarely have I been as disappointed with an app as I am with this counter productive and ill-designed waste of one's productive efforts.
This stems less from the overall quality of other free apps and more from the confusingly absent ability to simply cut and paste ones work (let alone export into another word document or app) after completing it on the WorkFlowy iPad app.
This is my first experience with an app actually hindering my ability to use it productively. In brief: one cannot export nor select and copy text after working on an outline or project. It's worth noting that although the app was free, I downloaded three other similar apps at the same time that while rated lower, still possessed the very basic feature of allowing the user to transport his/her work to another app, document, or outline.
Promise unfulfilled (so far)
I really want to like the iOS version of Workflowy. But it is very far from feature parity with the web app, and the deficits are very frustrating.
* No documentation, apparently. This may be the most egregious issue, since I am unable to deduce how to do something simple (like complete a task in a list).
* Very little support for external keyboards, and apparently no support for external keyboard shortcuts (I don't know for sure because there is apparently no documentation).
* Features that are either unavailable or hidden behind some arcane UI I can't decipher: like starred pages, multi-select, item completion, etc. I could go on but the developers know what's missing.
So I am disappointed. I honestly do not see the exact point behind releasing this app before it has at least got documentation and the same features as the web app, especially since the app appears to be updated only once a year. That would be fine if the app worked better...but it is intolerable for an app that has as many problems as this.
Once again, I wish I could like it. I really do. But I just can't. 😕
