What users are saying

This is by far one of the best note taking apps you can use for anything. Probably my favourite feature is the ability to change themes - I use the Sepia theme when reflecting, and I use the Dark theme for business. Overall you guys should be incredibly proud to have created such an amazing app that’s easy to use! Love it!

Great Outlining … period. Simple and to the point with what it does, and how it does it. I have used OmniOutliner for 7 or 8 years now, strictly to do outlining. Loved the feature to collapse sections of the outline. Outlinely does that one thing I was looking for, and at a reasonable price. Does it have some predefined themes…yes. After 1 hour with this, I know I won’t be looking to OmniOutliner again.

Elegant in its simplicity. This is everything I wanted it to be—exceptional productivity with no distracting bells and whistles.
