Aeon Timeline 2 is the next generation of Visual Timeline Software, rewritten from the ground up to provide a fresh new User Experience.

It comes packed with features for creative writers, project management, case management, historians and student projects.


Whether you are in the opening stages of planning a novel, in the final stages of editing, or anywhere in between, Aeon Timeline has tools and features to help you understand your characters, avoid plot holes and inconsistencies, and visualise your story in new ways.

With Aeon Timeline 2, you can:
- Model not only the events of your story, but the backstory of each of your characters
- Capture relationships between events and your characters, locations, and story arcs
- Visually group events by character, location, or arc
- Calculate character ages for every event
- Create your own custom fantasy calendar if your story takes place off-world.
- Synchronise your timeline with your Scrivener project


A little like a Gantt chart but a lot more flexible, Aeon version 2 allows you to plan multiple projects and keep them up to date throughout their lifetime. We know that few plans can survive the first few weeks of activity, so we make editing and moving your plans intuitive and straightforward.

With Aeon Timeline 2, you can:
- Visually group events by project, employee, location, or resource
- Use dependencies to link events and maintain correct ordering
- With nested events, zoom in for detailed subtasks or zoom out for project overview
- Auto-calculate values such as a parent’s completion percentage or cost from child events
- Add your own custom fields that you wish to track for each event


Our pre-configured editable templates allow you to start a project for just about any reason.

Features for everyone include:
- Select from a range of pre-configured templates or create your own
- Add your own images, external links, notes and research to your events so that you have everything you need linked from a single location.
- Filter events by almost anything, so that you can narrow your focus when trying to identify and resolve specific conflicts
- Zoom to the time scale you wish to see: anything from billions of years to individual minutes and seconds.
- Add bookmarks within your timeline so that you can easily jump between key milestones.
- Choose from a number of timeline styles, including absolute dates, relative dates (Day 1, Day 2), and numeric timelines.
- Export your timeline to an interactive Web display, or to image and PDF formats
- Import CSV files to populate your timeline

A programming Masterclass

An incredible combination of power and elegance.
I have a collection of timeline apps, spreadsheets, diaries, and documents spanning 50 years of my over-complicated life!
For the first time ever I can pull it all in and sort/categorise/link/group in such a fast and elegant process it just blows me away.
The attention to detail is everywhere - from the beautiful date-pickers to the way the app almost predicts what you want to do next. A fantastic design and programming achievement
Buying this app is the best iOS & Mac purchase I’ve made in years.

We have just started to develop a tv series as well as a documentary project using version 2, and it has been a really big asset to those involved… straight away it performed the way we wanted to use it…we are now also looking at the benefits of the project managment aspect of the app. When the ipad version comes out that will be incredably usfeul for our development on locations. Great job
