Excellent outliner system (Mac and iOS) for great price

There are some outliners out there which charge an excessive amount of money. Sure, they have some nice additional features, but it’s annoying to see many developers keep milking the cash cow with new paid versions, and even the much hated subscription model. This Cloud Outliner system has both iOS and Mac versions, and if you buy both of them, it’s only a fraction of what others might charge. The iCloud sync is flawless. You can even see it sync in front you. Just don’t immediately edit any outline that you open, to give it a chance to sync changes from your other devices. The ONLY thing I would want from this app is to customize the keyboard shortcuts. I’m very used to the shortcuts from the THINGS time management app, and so it’s a bit tricky to switch to this app’s keystrokes to move items up and down, etc. I hope more people buy and support this developer so this outliner can keep getting better, and giving great value for your money.

Good outliner

A good outliner that allows for hierarchy folders and files that can be expanded or retracted - There are very few apps that will do this. Also the Sync is flawless all the time and I have only had one time in 3-4 months that I moved around a lot of folders and had a crash that lost the changes; but beyond that it has been very reliable. There are other good apps outliner like Notebooks where you can also have many levels of nested file structure but where the sync is not instant and completely unreliable so what good are they. This app is stable and can be counted on and accessed from any device.
It is missing a couple key ingredients (there is no perfect app available) such as the ability to print. I copy and paste into notability and print fro there and it retains the structure but not the formatting. It also does not have the ability to attach files so it cant be used for information storage and retrieval. I use Notability for that too but it does not have a file hierarchy beyond a folder with underlings and no further hierarchy(much like Evernotes same major restriction) It would also be great to be able to use it more for tasks if it had tagging (context) and alerts.
For a reliable Outliner with and expandable and retractable file structure and unlimited hierarchy levels structure, it may be the best option available today
