One note app to write, organize & print. OneNote compatible & Office 365 powered. Capture notes at any spot on a page and drag around the place, organize in the world's most natural hierarchy, print to PDF, publish to web, and sync across devices with your favorite cloud. Freedom but clear structure. Power features but focus on note-taking. Beautiful UI. ONENOTE'S BEST FRIEND - Import from OneNote, to give those notes a new start beyond OneDrive or SharePoint - Export to OneNote, just in case - Go beyond import/export and do a real time collaboration on notes with colleagues who use OneNote (your iPad and their PCs) CLOUDS - Choose where you want to store your notes: Office 365, WebDAV, Dropbox, iCloud, Box, personal OneDrive, or SharePoint Server / Online - Consider a no-cloud option too: some notes need offline and cloud-free privacy UI - Find everything a note needs by the hand: text, lists, tables, handwriting, and drawing - Put that stuff anywhere in a note and then move around / re-size / edit it all, the way you like - Personalize notebooks with artful covers - Keep notes structured in a natural hierarchy of pages, sections, and notebooks (and section groups, yes) - Access a note fast via recents, search, and note links Whether it is your meeting minutes, research, document annotations, or ideas, give those a chance to go beyond the limits. Your notes are essential and do matter more than formats, storage, platforms, or even the app for note-taking. --- "From a feature set and user interface perspective, Outline is impressive" - TechRepublic. "Outline for iPad really provides the full editing experience you would have in OneNote or even on your Mac." - iPhone Life. "Outline a grants you the basic and much-needed capability to create new notebooks and sections" - CNET.

  • Have you been working out, Outline+?

    By A Dove
    Because you're looking better than ever. I've been using Outline+ for months now, and I'm really pleased with the array of tools, markup options, and import/export capabilities. It's great for studies, personal notes, and even combining sketches and photos for a gardening project I'm working on, or the Dungeons & Dragons campaign I’m running. I appreciate the stability of the app, and that it can import OneNote templates while still giving me control of my files. It’s chock full of features, but intuitive.
  • Dropbox integration is horrible

    By rus_sel
    This app is OK, but the Dropbox piece needs to be redone. It is slow. Painfully slow. It will try to sync data that isn’t for the app, it sorts content in Dropbox illogically so browsing to add a new sync notebook is a nightmare. Slow. Slow. S L O W. I only use it with Dropbox, so I can’t say if it is better on other sync platforms.
  • Lost and confused

    By Tinkeron
    I did not find this intuitive. The tutorial/user guide and search not helpful. Deleted an extraneous tab resulted in all tabs deleted. No undo. No “deleted” folder to put them back. Everything gone. Looks pretty, but doesn’t work for me.
  • Falling behind Onenote in features.

    By Ano-nym-ous
    When I initially purchased Outline, it was superior to then-terrible Onenote for iOS. Since then, the situation had reversed. Outline still has three advantages over Onenote: 1) It can use files from cloud storage other than Onedrive. This is the biggest advantage - but only for those who need it. If you're using a free Onenote on the desktop, you really can't utilize this. You also need to be using Onedrive if you want to have web access to your notebooks. 2) It has a beautiful visual design. 3) It can open .one files directly from email, which is a useful feature in some very limited circumstances. It also has a number of drawbacks, and here's the two biggest ones: 1) It doesn't OCR images, it doesn't OCR printouts, and even when it seems to find text in printouts created by Onenote, it won't highlight it half the time. This makes it a poor data management solution - what good is all that info if I can't find it ? This is a major design limitation. 2) While the sync has improved lately, it is still slow and there's no background sync. With Onenote getting better and better, they need to at least fix the search to stay relevant.
  • AVOID.

    Extremely difficult to sync across device, it should be seamless and intuitive but unfortunately it functions like software from 2005 in the time before smartphones.
  • Just got the App

    By CAHorne
    I just started using the App. So far it has been good, but I am still learning the in and outs of it. But I am happy to find a notes app that has some interface capabilities with OneNote

    As a creative professional I need a centralized location where I can keep sketches, research notes, reference material, PDFs, images, etc. Outline fits my needs perfectly. I will enthusiastically tell others about this app! Well Done Outline team. Don't stop your great work. Also, tell Apple they need to amp up your presence on the App Store!!!
  • Nice but not necessary

    By dang11
    Outline is a step up from notability. But it is no match for onenote. I can't see why I would use this program. OneNote syncs to everything. I will see if an update to make it superior to onenote with the Apple Pencil on the iPad.
  • No Good. App Erases almost everything

    By JustpeachynDC
    iTunes, please give me my money back for this crappy app. I am serious. This APP his horrible! Every time I try to write a new passage on my iPad in this APP, it immediately erases it not long after I pause to write a new line. It is extremely frustrating trying to type something out...then the app erases it. You try to remember what you thought, then you have to rewrite it. Try having to re-write it 3 OR 4+ times!! Try it happening when you are in a meeting. It's the kiss of death. This app Is SO annoying! You can't help but be upset about the shabbiness of the app. Not worth the money or the frustration. IT keeps erasing and it's too clunky when it tries to sync to the cloud. And putting images in the note might as well crash the whole notebook. Please get it together. For the irritation and anger I have endured trying to write in this app, it should be FREE.
  • Great application

    By DPRinFLA
    Outline is a great compliment to One Note in Microsoft. It works seamlessly across the IOS platforms and with One Note, so notes taken on one device are available on other devices. It has great functionality for my needs and I use it almost every day for personal journaling and keeping track of other things.
