There is a new new App from Hogbay software, Bike, which is perfect for this forum to discuss.

It is part text editor and part outliner.

Ah! Jesse Grosjean does it again… The guy who created and killed Mori, Plaintext, Folding Text, Taskpaper for IOS, SimpleText, QuickCursor. I have lost count of how many apps he created and dumped (along with his customers).
I won’t be fooled this time

$32 for that offer?
Jesse has always priced it hot….!
I loved taskpaper! except the syncing..
I loved Foldingtext, but for the endless quibling about node structures..

This doesn’t have a Unique Proposition of any kind as yet… so, yeah, nah.

Yet another outliner only for Mac. This guy Jesse’s a genius…

I hope the app flowers into something useful for people, but given the VERY checkered or spotty development history of other apps by Jesse I don’t think he’s getting my money. He’s already equivocating on Twitter, saying the “code is setup” for an iOS version “but will still be a lot of work. Will have to see how Bike goes and what features users want.”

So Bike seems really an early beta for sale, with changes subject to user request. Yet those who know the history of his app development should not expect much (or much quickly).

Terrible rollout too - a preview (and sale) page without screenshots. The only one I saw was a preliminary screenshot he posted to Twitter last week.
