I’ve been using ActionOutline for a few months now, and I have to say that I’m pretty happy with it. It’s the first time I’ve used an outliner, so I don’t have a lot to compare against, but it certainly does as advertised and mostly satisfies my current needs. Having said that though, the longer I use it the more things I find it useful for. Initially it was just for managing todo lists, but since then I’ve started doing a whole lot more, like outlining documents that I have to write, planning out software development, even creating presentations.
At the end of the day, the outliner is a platform that provides hierarchy and structure plumbing, plus a nifty compositing engine, plus a bunch of file system and network services.
