Great app that works on Mac and iOS, but no support is scary

I wanted to give this 5 stars. However, since the iPad app has had no updates in a year, and a variety of UI bugs are very noticeable on the iPad, iPhone, and Mac versions, I’m worried that this app might never get another update. And that makes me think all the data I’ve put in here might be bad.

I plan to switch to something like OmniOutliner because they have a more proven track record of support, although an update and some feedback from the author of Outlinely would calm my fears.

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.

Where is Outlinely?

This app is really great, but it looks like all development might have stopped. I submitted a question to the developer via their support link, but no response. There are some issues with iOS 13 but no fixes and no updates in over a year. Hate to see such great apps die like this. Outlinely has some great features that set it apart. Hopefully it comes back to life.
