Forced upgrade to a less functional product

I downloaded this new version of Timeline 3D when I upgraded to iOS Sierra — I had been using one from 2011, but that version can’t even be opened in iOS Sierra. So, I downloaded this compatible version, particularly to open projects that I created in the past.

As users of the education version have commented, this new version doesn’t have a horizontal bar that marks the length of events… That’s an important feature for understanding the duration and overlap events in a timeline. Nor can you overlay multiple timelines, which also helps visualize complicated events. Also, you still can’t zoom in to see events or a smaller span of time in the 3D when your timeline spans many years by a scrolling function or zoom—the events remain tiny and unreadable. I’d be willing to pay for a version that could do those things.

I’m at a loss to say anything that’s “better” about this upgraded version… Using this to visually organize information is worse that the previously helpful and useful versions. If you’re using a legacy version of Timeline 3D, be sure to export all your files in PDF or some format that isn’t dependent on Timeline 3D before upgrading to Sierra or downloading this version.

The glory that once was Rome….

Way back in the day, this was a superb app for crafting a 2D timeline. Exporting could be a bit of a problem, but I could get things to work well. The user used to be able to select the fonts, etc. etc. Very customizable. Now the app is a far, sad cry from those capabilities. It seems to be 100% catered to a 3D user. That’s great, but why can’t we have both? Let me do my 2Ds again!

Developer Response ,

We're sorry to hear you feel that way about the app. The fundamental technologies that the previous versions were based upon are no longer supported in the latest versions of the operating system, so we have had to rewrite the app from scratch. We understand it won't be able to please all users, but the latest version does have some advantages, including speed, better animations and lighting effects, simplicity, autosave and document versions, iOS compatibility, and more.

This application has deteriorated terribly

What a huge disappointment, this application has gone from good to terrible. I used this application many years ago to generate timelines for a few projects of mine at work and it was great, it did what I needed it to do, it was easy to use and the timelines it produced looked good. I decided to use the product again for some personal projects recently and what a let down. The app is irritating to work with because there is only a 3D view, no 2D view and the 3D view keeps jumping up and down while you are looking at it for no apparent reason, this is so irritating it is causing me to look for another package to create timelines with. I also find the lack of a 2D view very irritating, a 3D view is only necesary when a timeline is interative so making the 3D view the default is in my opinion extremely stupid. The user interface is clumsy, the lack of detailed customisation is limiting and the price to unlock all the feautures of the application is ridiculous if one consider's how limited the functionality of the application is. I think this application has gone from being excellent to being a piece of junk software.
