Not credible and not editable.

If I could clear all the prefabricated history on here and create my own timeline of literally only the things I want to see then I would be happy. But you can only delete one out of the billions of things on here at a time. Pointless. Please add a blank timeline feature.

Developer Response ,

Timeline Builder does not ship with any prefabricated history, existing event entries, or timelines. Only timelines and events you create are displayed within the app.

Easy to use

This program is very easy to use. Although it may have a few flaws (Can’t delete multiple things at once), it’s still one of the best Timeline creators I’ve experimented with and it’s great for anything ranging from a Historical Timeline to anything else. Definitely worth it.

Really needs better support for short timelines

This is exactly what I need, except that there’s poor support for short timelines (24 hrs or less). You can’t set a timeline to last less than a year, which is really a shame because even at full zoom, you just can’t distinguish between events at different times on the same day. I’d love to set it for any arbitrary length of time.
