Does anyone know whatever happened the macOS app, Tree?

It seems perfect for my use case for an outliner. Brett Terpstra states it best when he writes;

“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.”

I am after an outliner very similar to Tree if it is no longer around. Any suggestions?

I loved Tree too. It seems to have disappeared from the App Store.

There is no real competitor to Tree.

Gingko is somewhat similar. I wrote about it. [Working in a Tree-View in Gingko - Bicycle For Your Mind](http://bicycleforyourmind.com/working_in_a_tree_view_in_gingko)

I have not found another app that displays the outline horizontally. As you note, Ginko is the only app that comes close.
It certainly is a shame that Tree is no more. :(

By the way, I read your blog @macosxguru and found it to be educational and a great read! Good job. :)

The dev pulled the app. It can still be downloaded from one of those app repositories like download.cnet.com but you’re left with a trial version and no way to pay for it. (But it still works!)

I emailed the dev at the beginning of the year but never heard from him and his website topoftree.co.jp fails to resolve.
