I would like to see in an outliner what Brett Terpstra states in his blog when he wrote about the Tree app;

“An outliner is an outliner, but Tree adds one thing that makes it infinitely more useful to me and my non-linear thought process: a horizontal view of the outline. It’s basically a right-aligned mind map. Seeing each level of the hierarchy in line with other siblings across different branches suddenly brings the whole brainstorming thing together for me.”


There was a further discussion about this in these forums:
