I use a PC and can find only one decent cloud outlining app. The Outliner of Giants: http://www.theoutlinerofgiants.com

I know there are a few iPad apps, and some are good, but I don’t generally use my iPad as a productivity device. I have tried, and I know some do and love it, but it’s not for me (though I love my iPad for many other things). I prefer doing the bulk of my work on a laptop. Are there any other online outliners besides the one I linked to above?

Yes, I have tons of outlining programs *installed* on my laptops (I’m an admitted CRIMPer) - just looking for online options.

Thoughts? Ideas?

Just found a few others. I’m sure a lot of these have probably been discussed, but not specifically in a thread about online apps.
(Or if there was, I missed it.)

- workflowy.com

- checkvlist.com

- fargo.io

- listography.com (not quite an outliner - but interesting concept)

Just a few you haven’t mentioned.

http://sproutliner.com/ - multi-column, but not a writing tool.

http://www.tidylines.com OK, but no word count, and can’t find a way to save on that site.

http://checkvist.com/ - jaslar/pattern
I like this one. Very spiffy. Easy to use, easy to watch things on screen, can be shared. Good export to HTML.

http://loosestitch.com/ - costs so didn’t sign up. There is a free trial.

http://www.lucidgreen.net - Very undeveloped.

Pretty good. Free account is public. Otherwise, $5 a month.

Coggle (through Google) (more of a mind map)

Oak Outliner (local storage)
