I don’t believe I have seen this very interesting outliner mentioned here. It is an Android application and has some unusual characteristics.

First, any node can become the tree root. This is like a hoist but this outliner allows links among nodes and thus you have links between “friends” (a bidirectional link). When you perform this type of hoist you also see parents and friends. The cross links approach a network organization. Notes can also have multiple parents.  Pretty interesting ....

Searching includes regular expressions as well as normal search functionality.

Items are rich text and use HTML markup (with a user friendly toolbar to help). It exports to HTML for printing. You can include images. Notes can be “any size”.

The latest version now imports Bonsai outlines (this is, evidently, simple import since NoteLynX doesn’t have columns. I don’t know if the developer is planning to add columns. It uses the CSV version).

If you are an Android user I suggest you give this application a good look.

Very interesting indeed. The one conceptually similar application that comes to mind in the PC world is TheBrain. It would be great if they could somehow exchange files. In fact, the one weakness I see in Notelynx is that it doesn’t export its content in any cross-outliner format.

Sideline: I’ve saved myself from a CRIMP attack because it needs Android 2.2 and up to work and my phone is still on 2.1. It’s the same reason I haven’t been able to install the Ema wiki.

I do have this lovely little app on my Samsung Galaxy Note, and it is gorgeous. But after playing with it for a bit, in true CRIMPer tradition I hardly touch it now, simply because it doesn’t interact with anything else. Shame. If it did, and if there was an iOS version - or, indeed, a PC desktop version - too, I would be using it all the time!
