Nice features.  A bit buggy (HTML export show footnote superscript markers for only the first note) - but not much.

Price is right for the paid subscription.

I’d be curious to know others’ reaction to this outliner. Personally, I have an aversion to outliners that fence each node in a box. It destroys the sense of cohesion an outline should have, making it look like a collection of individual blocks. Again, this is my subjective reaction, not an objective observation. On top of this issue, I also find the way OOG deals with attached notes is awkward.

To be blunt, outliner of giants is too slow for me. So I haven’t really bothered exploring the feature set. 

Speed is the number one feature for me. Search is second. So my outlining applications of choice are Noteliner, Treesheets, OneNote, and Excel.  I used to love ListPro but don’t use it much anymore.  The only web app I like is workflowy.  checkvist and trello are possibles but not quite right for me.

I remember looking at it several years ago and finding it cumbersome overall. I’m glad to see that there have been some development since then (like markdown, export options etc.). Actually it’s got a number of features that Workflowy still hasn’t got; but at the same time its user interface lets it down. It just takes too many clicks to do anything. Workflowy is just so much cleaner and easier (i.e. faster) to use.
