Close to being an essential app, but needs a few issues addressed

Arg. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled Outlinely about six times this past week as I debate using it.

a. It’s gorgeous. I love the (Ulysses-inspired) minimalism and library views.

b. It’s sleek. Unlike other outliners it manages to compress a lot of functionality within a simple, speedy user experience.

c. It’s powerful. Infinitely nested outlines, [[Wiki-style]] note-to-note linking, ::MarkdownXL highlighting::. Lots of great features that I haven’t found elsewhere.

1. It’s a bit buggy. I’ve had some odd typing experiences (parts of sentences coming back after being deleted when copying and pasting, sheets failing to load and sync (I’ve lost work this way!)... I haven’t been keeping detailed notes but there’s enough issues that I fear the app’s reliability.

2. It’s expensive. As others have noted, the price for enabling iCloud syncing (which shouldn’t be difficult to implement) seems like a high barrier to entry. For the price I’d expect additional features—Dropbox syncing, for instance.

3. It’s proprietary. In the background, files are saved as .outlinely files (or something similar) in an XML-style markup. It’s also impossible to get to these files directly in the file system (e.g., they’re saved to iCloud, not iCloud Drive), making interaction with other apps difficult. If this could be resolved, it’d be far easier to do more with the app. I’d love to start a file in Outlinely and sync it with Dropbox. Eventually I’d open the file in Ulysses to actually write the thing I outlined.

4. The developer seems a bit inactive. No activity on Twitter since August. I worry that development has stopped/paused.

I’ve tried the trial, and if it weren’t for cons (1), (3), and (4) above I’d be a lifetime customer. I’ll keep checking back!

Great outliner, Pro Subscription Out To Lunch

This is a great outliner. For me, I want to see:

- infinite nesting
- ease of use - easy to manipulate nests, check boxes
- links to other apps
- infinite folding.

It does all this well, albeit not perfectly, but at least it has all of these where others are missing one of them.

HOWEVER, the PRO version pricing is absurd. Complete madness. There are much better pricing structures out there, and they will get all these features right..
