While Version 2 was good, this new version is a real work of art.

It is actually one of the best apps I have ever used, espcially for the price. I was using a very large, complex database (with expensive software) to accumulate historic information to be used in various research papers. This new version has so many features that I was not only able to eliminate that database but now I can see the data and all the relationships visually from several different perspectives. The earlier version was good, but not as feature-packed as this one, and therefore I still had to keep my database. Although some additional features and tweaks, albeit minor ones (some are already planned), would enhance its usability, it is a fantastic app.

Great for Novel Writing

In the writing group, I am in; everybody seems to be talking about Aeon Timeline. So I did a little research checking reviews, especially one by an anthropologist, and concluded this was for me. I used it for an hour and am in love with it. Does it have a steep learning curve-a little? If you spent a short amount of time with it and went through its tutorial, you would be good to go.
They are subscription-based. In this case, it is not a pejorative term. Pay once, and it is yours forever. If you want to upgrade after a year, it's your choice. What more can you ask.

One of my greatest discoveries in 2021

I've been looking for a solid timeline app for years and this one blows away all of my expectations. This isn't just a timeline app—it's a relational database. This app deserves one heck of a review from someone far more articulate than I am. Download the app and don't hesitate to pay the annual subscription. It's more than worth it. I hope the developers are rich.
