Outline – one note app for offline, cloud & WebDAV. OneNote compatible & Office 365 powered.

Capture notes at any spot on a page and draggable around. Organize notes in the world's most natural hierarchy. Store notes in your local file system, and synced across devices with your favorite cloud.

- Choose where you want to store your notes: Dropbox, iCloud, WebDAV, Box, or OneDrive
- Consider a no-cloud option too: some notes need offline and cloud-free privacy
- Mind the coming-soon: SharePoint, OneDrive for Business / Office 365

- Find everything a note needs by the hand: text, lists, tables, images, checkboxes, hyperlinks, and more
- Put that stuff anywhere in a note and then move around / re-size / edit it all, the way you like
- Keep notes structured in a natural hierarchy of pages, sections, and notebooks
- Access a note fast via recents, search, and note links
- Manage font size and color, apply styles and highlighting
- Attach files and insert printouts, to collect documents in one place

- Import from OneNote, to give those notes a new start beyond OneDrive or SharePoint
- Export to OneNote, just in case
- Go beyond import/export and do a real time collaboration on notes with colleagues who use OneNote (your Mac and their PCs)

- From OneNote
- From Circus Ponies
- From Evernote

Whether it is your meeting minutes, research, document annotations, ideas, or even a book, give those a chance to go beyond the limits.

Your notes are essential and do matter more than formats, storage, platforms, or even the app for note-taking.

Still no onedrive business...

MUCH more important than WebDav IMO. Already available in the iPad version. I’m assuming that it will *eventualy* make it’s way into the Mac version. One excellent thing about this product is the ability to use local notebooks. Since Microsoft officialy announced in one of their OneNote Blog that they have no intention to add this functionality it makes Outline much more interesting. Now, if only it would connect with 365 and if they would improve the menu bar look. Looks really ‘old’ and tired nowadays….

So many function we would like, so few programming hours to make them a reality ;-).

Good product guys.

So disappointed

I purchased this app after the two week trial period. The trial version ran beautifully. Two hours into purchasing the app for $55, the program crashed 3 times, changes were not saved despite having synced and backed up the file, and the section headers have been incredibly glitchy (opens 2 sections rather than 1 when I try to open a new section). The idea and layout were great but the actual performance falls so below the mark. Truly disappointed about wasting the money. Also, there is no helpline or customer support person to reach out to - major disadvantage. Save yourself the money, look elsewhere.

An excellent complement to enhance your daily productivity

This app really enhance the OneNote experience in your daily working life. The technical support is also excellent. People answer question very promptly. They are also listen to customer needs and suggestions. I highly recommend this app for serious people who really like to tweak and looking for full potential of their daily working experience!!
