Organize your thoughts and ideas with these outlining apps

There's a simple reason the traditional bullet-point format of outlining is still very much in use in organizing all sorts of information — it just works. And these apps are sure to help you in making outlines in such a manner, from thoughts and ideas to notes and to-dos.

Outliner for iPad

CarbonFin

** This is the iPad only version of Outliner

CarbonFin Outliner for iPad is a nice lower cost alternative to OmniOutliner. At a quarter of the cost you get a quarter of the elegance, power, and usefulness. The sync feature is the only thing that this app has over OmniOutliner. The sync is not very useful. There is no desktop app that it connects with. It will sync to your iPhone and other iPads. The app is easy to use and includes TextExpander support (something not currently in OmniOutliner). There is much to like here, but compared to the competition it has a long way to go.
