Superb but big question...

Dec 2018 Amazingly uncluttered and powerful outliner with all of the most important features... Zoom, tags, links within the app, iCloud sync... Who are these great designers?

May 2019 I am a full on iPad Pro and Outlinely has been the center of all of my text work on some huge projects. But, I really need an indication from the developers as to their intentions for future support. As I request that teammates and clients use Outlinely, I need a higher level of confidence. Please be in touch, and congratulations on a spectacular app.

Best Option for iOS outlining

If you need to work on outines in iOS there really is no competition. For a while this app looked like abandonware, but the developer has shown a true and renewed commitment to continuously improving the app for some time now, long enough that I feel comfortable switching back. Also, for those who do not like subscriptions there is a now a reasonable “lifetime subscription" option which unlocks all features for a single price.

Amazing minimalist interface, but on iPad significant bugs

Update: I forget that every other now and then Apple devices benefit from a restart. That solved the vanishing hierarchy, so I’m bumping my rating from 2 stars to 3. There are still some flow of use clunks (renaming, moving files could be much simpler and is in other apps.
What do I love? Simple interface and look and feel so I can flow with my thoughts instead of wrestle the app (the above issues are not related to outlining, but file management and ease of info out, not in). Library. It is part of my outline and allows me to have one outline of many. Ease of text settings. Well done!

Original review:
I bought the pro after trying this out; however, I soon learned that reopening outlines to edit them (at least on the iPad) causes them to lose all hierarchy. This is basic outline functionality and they don’t have it. They haven’t updated in 4 months, which is fine if they are in a big production cycle, but with bugs like this present, they ought to be pushing out bug updates faster.
