Sorry, for mystic reasons my acute-accented ‘e’ at the end of Tapose was turned into a question mark on uploading.

The ex-Microsoft team produce something called “Tapose” (with an accent on the ‘e’). Here it is…

Alexander - I’ve just discovered that List Master is also available for Android. And as a newbie Android user myself (nice, shiny Galaxy Note - magic!) I’m finding a lot of synergies with iOS. Currently my favourites are probably Dropbox, OneNote and a couple of very nice text editors that I’m still familiarising myself with. But there’s an increasing amount of cross-platform stuff (Wunderlist for task management, for example - available on almost every platform you can think of!).

Hi Bill

Thanks again for your suggestions. As I mentioned, I did purchase, and am playing with List Master, but I’m having a little difficulty finding the outlining part of the ‘Columned Outliner’ in either this app, or Apple’s Numbers app on my iPad.

Could you please point me to where I can learn how to do outlining in either of these two apps?

Hi Alexander

I agree with Bill, the Listpro for the iPhone is ok for what it does, but the Windows version for the desktop, where you can create and see your collapsible outline on the left side of your display, and the columns spreading out to the right, is how Omni Outliner has been implemented, taking full advantage of the iPad’s screen real estate.

Listpro for the iPhone will run on the iPad (as most, if not all, iPhone apps will) but it’s just a 2X zoomed reproduction of its 1 column display.

@ Bill (Mad about Dana)

Thanks for the tip on ListMaster for Android; I may try it out. Do I understand correctly that it only provides 2-level hierarchies?

For editors: Jota Text editor is my own favourite; it has the kind of minimal interface that doesn’t get in the way, like TextRoom and WriteMonkey in Windows.

That said, after a while of switching from one platform to the other, sometimes twice or more per day, I really don’t want to spend time importing/exporting. The seamless synchronisation provided by the SimpleNotes service is my own preferred solution. I use Andronotes on the Android; as an editor it’s not perfect, but I don’t often write prose on the Android.

If you haven’t tried it out already, do take a look at Airdroid http://airdroid.com/
